black sheep white lie













you're a black sheep
tellin' a white lie
bleachin' your wool
tryin' to get by
a blanket of snow
to go with the flow
but inside the flock
you pull away
cause it's knitted
in your DNA
you're a black sheep
have you forgotten
you'll never be
100% cotton
so break the mold
free the fold
'cause deep inside
the others wish
they were more
like you and 
a lot less
sheepish
