Guns N' Roses - Human Being Lyrics




Ready
It's A Whole Different Beast
1, 2, 3, 4
1, 2, 3, 4 (kazoo madness)
Oh yeeeahh
Oh yeeeeeeahh

Well if you don't like it
Go ahead find yourself a saint
Go ahead now try to find a boy
Who's gonna be what I ain't

What you need is a plastic doll
With a fresh coat of paint
Who's gonna sit through all the madness
And always act so quaint
I said - a, oh yeah, well - a

It's your new friend
You're really
Making a scene, and I've seen you
Bouncing around, from machine to machine
But you know that

They're never really
Never really what they seem
And you can count on
Generate some warmth, then you'll
See just what I mean
Oh baby, baby, baby yeah

[CHORUS:]

And if I'm acting like a king
Don't ya know it's cos uh I'm a human being
And if I want too many things
Don't ya know it's cos I'm a human being
And if I've got to dream
Don't ya know it's cos I'm a human being
And when it gets a bit obscene
Don't ya know it's cos I'm a human being
I don't gotta walk around with my head on down
Just like a human... oh no a human being
I can hold my head so high
Just like a human
A real proud human being

Won't you give me a little sip
Why won't you give me a drag of that cigarette
Why don't you try to give me something
That I'll never ever forget, but now
Could you blow it all
On a million dollar bet
Because you're liable to lose it
On a best lovin' you've had yet
Oh baby baby, oh yeah

[CHORUS]

It's like I'm talkin' 'bout the human race
You're tryin' to cover up a big disgrace
Oh baby, yeah, yeah, yeah
Come on, come on, come on, come on

Well I may think that
This whole scene is just a too appalling for me
Well, I may be the type who's just mad about
Funny little thing that I see, but I can
Colour that with history, and make it
Just what I want it to be, well I'm
Blowin' my change on the fan magazines
With all the Hollywood refugees
Oh baby baby oh yeah

[CHORUS]

  6. MoneyMo

    The fan made video for this song was ace. Showed a bunch of live footage throughout the years. Don't know why GNR made those videos disappear. So we can stare at their still album cover on their channel for every song? Lame.

  7. zozo 1215

    Esta canción es un camión sin frenos. Que ganas de tomar algo me dieron.

  8. 山田隆介

    今無性に聴きたくなった!

    Julie Nichols

    @Enda Dorgan good answer I have always loved this song it sounds just as new as the very first time I heard it as if the last 26 yrs never happened 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯

    Enda Dorgan

    Julie Nichols
    I sometimes wish it was 26 years ago again! The lyrics are amazing.
    I just looked at your page n seen the Drug Years, jesus did any of us escape the 90s without fucking drug problems!?! Haha!!

    Julie Nichols

    @Enda Dorgan I know right? LoL I am sure you have noticed that all the bands that exploded from the early 90's are almost all gone from drugs and or suicide there's only one or two left of the originals Layne staly R.I.P. 😞 and more recently front men Scott wheiland from STP died from drugs (probably fentanyl laced coke they're putting that shit in EVERYTHING nowadays) and the talented Cris Cornel (suicide 5/17?/17) R.I.P. I call it the 90's almost like a weird repeat of history the 60's and then they all died by the early 1970's most notably Jimi Hendrix.janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all gone within 10 months!!! Jimi and Janis within 16 days of each other!!!! 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯

    Enda Dorgan

    Julie Nichols
    Always thought there was something suspect about Chris Cornells death. Was he back on the gear before his suicide? Laynes death was so sad, the state they found him in. Waste of talent.

    Enda Dorgan

    Julie Nichols
    Yeh Fentanyl. Even years ago it was always said to stay away from that and not to try smoking morphine patches.

  31. SuperMarioStar10

    Can't understand one word Axl is saying, but I still enjoy listening to this song.
