  1. Renaissance Man

Lyrics

(I wanna be a renaissance man)
And I'm not talking bout' fairs with knights killing dragons
or fragments of centuries with cultural epiphanies
No, I'm thinking bigger, boys and girls,
I'll be taking a whirl at reinventing the world
Think I'm crazy? Just wait
You won't go five feet without seeing my face, be it
on albums, in subways, commercials, on Broadway
In Canada, Norway, the arctic, on Mercury
It's not easy, but my crosshairs are set on victory
I just made history!
Some say I've mistaken narcissism for confidence…
… shut up, no I haven't

I can do anything and more
I can do anything

I wanna be
(I wanna be)
a renaissance man
I wanna be
(I wanna be)
a renaissance man

(I wanna be a renaissance man)
and I don't mean to condescend, but I can see that in the end
I'm just better, a go-getter,
a little sugar and a little bit of spice
but forget about the everything nice, what I got'll suffice
for what I'm after, gotta catch em' all to be the master
faster than the government denies a disaster
Why settle for the jack of all trades
when I could be the king of all trades! Is that a thing?

I can do anything and more
I can do anything

I wanna be
(I wanna be)
a renaissance man
I wanna be
(I wanna be)
a renaissance man

To be or not to be, wherefore art the Ides of my discontent?

So I says to the guy, I says "don't worry, that's just my wife!"
I got a million of em'!

I want a stage with some actors, the drumset, a backdrop
with props, and a microphone, stands and a metronome
black leather skintights , a piano, some house lights
a guitar, a sitar, all my fellow rockstars
a choir, a film crew, reporters to speak to
a few extra tom-toms , a thirty foot jumbotron
shakers and congas, a symphony orchestra
at least a horn section, would equal perfection
Yeah!

Woah!
I wanna be
(I wanna be)
a renaissance man
I wanna be
(I wanna be)
a renaissance man
Yeah!
