"SO WHAT"

Intro
I'm aware of the things you're goin' through,
But I got somethin' to lay on you that's
Straight from the heart, it's the way I feel
The bottom line on what is false and what is real:

Verse 1
Now, if you're not way cool like Tom Cruise,
And you don't make "All the Right Moves,"
So what? Follow thou Me.-
Ya say you don't drive an awesome car?
You don't even like the way you are?
So what? Follow thou Me.
If you don't always steal the show;
You never were on a video
Well, these are gigs that come and go,
So what is that to thee?
[Follow thou Me!]-[Come on!]

Verse 2
Hey, if you can't dunk a basketball,
You're not so brilliant in sports and all,
So what? Follow thou Me.
And if you don't even sing on key,
Ya don't sound like a Mariah Carey,
So what? Follow thou Me.
Chuck your complex out the door.
Check out what you're living for.
'Cause I've got better things in store,
So what is that to thee?

Refrain
[Hear Him callin']
Come out, come out, wherever you are!
[Hear Him callin']
Hitch your wagon, wagon to a star!
[Hear Him callin']
Listen up, won't you for sake this vanity
And follow thou Me.

[Are ya comin'?] [Girls: Are ya comin'?]

Verse 3
Girl, you're checkin' the mirror and feelin' awkward;
You've not got the shape of a Cindy Crawford.
So what? Follow thou Me.
Boy, you're not the kind that the girls adore,
All the chicks aren't lining up at your door.
That's tough! But follow thou Me. [Yeah, yeah.]
You may not wear the latest styles,
Hairdo can't be seen for miles,
These and many other trials,
Well, what's all that to thee?

Verse 4
You think that you've got no special skills,
And say you're missing the fun and frills.
So what? Just follow thou Me.
You know you're not all that worldly-wise,
So you're feeling despised in others' eyes.
So what? Just follow thou Me. [Ye-eah.]
If you don't have a P.H.D., well,
All I see is the degree
To which you love lost souls and Me;
Now,that's all that matters to Me.

[Repeat Refrain]

[Trust Me.]

Bridge
Well, I lived and died,
To give you life abundantly [yes, You did]
You know I love you,
But who do you love, the World or Me?
[Ooh] Mmmmm. [Ooh] Now, what's it gonna be?

Sax Solo
[Whisper: What's it gonna, what's it gonna be?] -
[Girl, Boy, basket, hairdo, Cindy,]

Spoken
Let Me calm your fears and dry your tears
And break the chains that have you bound
And take you to a world where freedom
And equality and peace are found;
Where shallowness, hypocrisy,
And superficiality and phony popularity
Are done away by love, faith, and humility,
Simplicity, sincerity. Do you follow Me?

What are your priorities?
World you see, or World to be?
Start to build your future now
For eternity.
[Repeat]

[Countermelody during the above:
For eternity...gotta build your future...oh, for eternity!]

Ending ad libs
[Come on! Follow Me! You can make it!]
[What's it gonna be? -The World or Me?] Follow thou Me.
[Where we're goin', we won't need roads.] Follow thou Me. [Let's go!]
