Fun-loving, high-energy tune with an introspective, serious side.

Words and music by Judy Wu, copyright 2004. Production by MD Thompson/Ivory Tower Realizations, copyright 2004.

Substance abuse typically comes to mind hen we speak of addictions, but there are other forms of addiction that are equally mind-altering and disruptive to our quality of life. One is the addiction to pleasing everybody or seeking other people's approval. This song pokes fun at this common and often serious struggle in a fun, self-deprecating, and light-hearted way.
Won’t you tell me what you think of me,
Tell me how you feel
I want to know what you say of me,
You know I aim to please
I’m a schmoozer, just a loser
Won’t you tell me what you want from me,
Tell me what you like
I’m a glutton for all your songs of praise,
I’d sell my soul for more
I’m a schmoozer, just loser

Chorus:
I'm a people-pleasing junkie
I don’t know when I started
But lately I’ve been thinking
I’ve got to kick this habit
Oh yeah, yeah…
hey, hey, yeah yeah

I know just what you want to hear,
That’s all I ever say
If I know where you want me to be,
I’ll be there every time
I’m reptilian, a chameleon
I dress like you and talk like you
and wear my hair like you do
I blend in so well wherever I go,
I don’t know who I am
I’m reptilian, a chameleon

Chorus

I’m quick to make a compromise
If it makes me wise in your eyes
I’ll toss aside conviction –
It’s just fiction in disguise
I’m a schmoozer, just a loser
I’m wet clay in your hands
I let you mold and make me
But why do I let you be God?
I must be outta my mind

Bridge:
Oh, I don’t know when I started
But it’s been messing with my head
And lately I’ve been thinking that
I’ve got to kick this habit
I’m a people-pleasing junkie
I’ve been running on close to empty
And lately I’ve been thinking that
I’ve got to kick this habit

Chorus2:
I’m a people-pleasing junkie
I don’t know when I started
But lately I’ve been thinking
I’ve got to kick this habit
Oh yeah, yeah… hey, hey
Well, I’m a people-pleasing junkie
I don’t know when I started
But lately I’ve been thinking
I’ve got to kick this habit
Dear God, please come release me from my captivity
I am a people-pleasing junkie
Get this monkey off of me
Oh yeah, yeah…
hey, hey, yeah yeah
