Snow - Everybody Wants To Be Like You Lyrics

Girl comes home and checks her phone
She fools herself that she's not alone
Everybody wants to be like you
When it all boils down and all this ends
You turn around and you got no friends
Everybody wants to be like you

I would really hate to be her think they love her when they see her
When she's gone she just don't know what they say
She inherited the drama it was passed down from her mama
And her daddy he would only drink wine
Only if she came around...but she's slowly going down

Girl comes home and checks her phone
She fools herself that she's not alone
Everybody wants to be like you
When it all boils down and all this ends
You turn around and you got no friends
Everybody wants to be like you

She looked a whole lot older yet nobody ever told her
You would never know that she was 16
And as far as I remember she was standing on the corner
Just the type that loved to be on the scene
Only if she came around...but she's slowly going down


And if you want it and you need it and you want to go out and get it
When it all boils down and all this ends you turn around and you got no friends

Everybody wants to be like you
Girl comes home and checks her phone
She fools herself that she's not alone
Everybody wants to be like you
When it all boils down and all this ends
You turn around and you got no friends
Everybody wants to be like you

Snow Everybody Wants To Be Like You Comments
  1. Justin Martin

    Thanks for the memorys

  2. mugm2

    It’s a shame what his label did to him in the 90’s. He’s really a good artist. They just wanted to cash in on a one hit wonder and neglected his talent. He got mixed in with Vanilla Ice. Damn shame

  3. TJ Wolf

    So proud to be from the 6.

  4. sunflower jam

    Heard this song on our local Canadian channel today..sweet song ..oldey but one of the best :)

  5. Ignacio Varga

    just realizing now that snow was SO much more than just informer.

  6. T Regan

    I rock this tune on Spotify at least 3 times a week. I always think of the same woman when I do. This song described her to a Tee...

  7. Calvin MGS

    Listening from Halifax, NS. May, 2019!

  8. Louise Damecour

    A genius, way ahead of his time for music, moves and truth!
    A Canadian masterpiece! This natural resource should be supported by Canadians for his comeback.

  9. L M

    I watched for the car. Loved this as a kid for that reason haha

  10. GamerForces

    My son-in-law did a remake of this, Chris Douglas passed away On Wednesday February 27th 2019 at 27 years of age he leaves two beautiful daughters. Keep them in in your prayers. Thank you, cheers

  11. A Girl From Another Light

    When I used to be a guy, I used to fondle over him and imagine myself as his girlfriend. Good times.

    jeff figelstein

  12. Ron420 Kellestine

    Jan 14th 2019 Toronto Canada <3

  19. Rahimo

    1:30 - I hate to be the one to break it to you, Snow, but that defense won't hold up in court.

  20. whisperienced

    Welcome to the song that was on all day in the grocery store I worked at as a kid.

  21. Dadding AllDay

    I remember this song. hell ya

  22. dj merfy

    snow only the best

  23. jsunn dancer

    great 90shit i mean 90s hit

  24. The Unwitnessed

    Anyone know what word is said at 1:59? Is that the name of a person? I can't find it in any of the lyrics because it appears to be said by one of the background people. Thanks!

    Ben Schyan

    hear this


    It is? Innis? In this?

    "Hear this" makes the most sense, but ironically I can't hear it.

    Ben Schyan

    Snow was never really known for being articulate ;-D

    The Unwitnessed

    Thanks. I'm with Frabjous on this, while "hear this" would make sense I can't hear it. I hear "Innis" as well but it seems weird to just throw a name randomly in a song.


    Hear this

  25. bstove24

    Is this one of the oldest uploads on YouTube?


    The first youtube video was uploaded in April of 2005, so it's an oldie for sure.

  26. Allan Cosgrove

    Snow can rap and sing awesome, I wonder if he will ever come back. Just because you don't get a ton a radio play does not mean your music isn't golden.


    +Allan Cosgrove His career got destroyed because of legal shenanigans from his manager... so, no, he won't be back...

    Dog and Crow

    I just looked on wiklipedia. He releases stuff online

    Guy Incognito

    He's back!

    Crystal Stoner

    HE'S BACK!!!

    Ignacio Varga

    Look up Con Calma. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

  27. Mitchell Kusi

    This song isshit why cant there be music like this nowadays

  31. randy ravivann

    holly pietrzak

    +randy ravivann yes it was I miss it so much it aint the same like today

  32. chritters1

    One of the first artists from Toronto!!

    Jeremy R Hansen

    @chritters1 Might want to be a little more percise as I am SURE Neil Young, Rush and MANY OTHERS have been around a tad longer! ;)


    Triumph, Rush yes your very correct, 

  33. Wesley C


    jeff figelstein

    cringey memories


    This became all irrelevant the moment I hit puberty
