Chameleon (Single)

by Gavin Castleton



This song was written in 2003 for a friend who wanted to do a boy band pop project. Over the years it matured a bit, got a deeper pocket and more sensual delivery, but it's still just as silly.


I could be a friend to you
I could say the sweetest things
or I could be a victim, too
I could be the one in charge...

I could be a movie star
I could be your James Dean
Hey I could take things way too far
or I could keep them very clean


See I could be anything that you want
but all I want is to be
I'll be your chameleon
You could have a million men
as long as I am all of them

I saw you dressing in your bedroom
I was that breathing in the dark
I was the banging in the basement
I was that shadow in the park
yeah yeah yeah

See I could be anything that you want
but all I want to be is your
I'll be your chameleon
you could have a million men
as long as I am all of them

You've got to let me show ya

I'll be your chameleon
when you need someone to play
I'll be your chameleon
when all your friends say your man is gay
I'll be your chameleon
you wanna talk about your feelings
I'll be your chameleon
I'm gonna paint my seed across your ceiling, babe
You wanna get wronged in the face by Mr. Right?
I could violate your human rights -
a lifetime of humping jammed into one night.
You want a fight? You want a piece/peace?
Your backside is raw but your boy don't cease baby
stay missionary don't scream if the tempo varies
careful how you wear those pants!
I'm a cop, now show your hands!
You're just a panda barely managing
you're stressed out on bamboo
I'll be your zookeeper
blow it out slow like a pan flute.
Stick to the plan: you're just a woman in a mansuit,
I'm just a guy who never leaves (like a Dave Matthews tattoo)
SCREW IT I'll be gone before your wake
eh uh
maybe I'll come back with some chicken steak
some sausage
and a fat stack of pancakes,
assorted fruits
and a mandrake root,
hex your christianity with my voodoo!

let's get some blush up on those yams, baby
let's get this Power Glove all up on your hands baby
you can hunt my ducks for a while
ain't no puppy love in this doggy style
when the cat's away, Lt. Uhura, Mr. Sulu don't play.
