Subject: Searching for this song title for 40 years!!

Written By: newyorker52 on 04/18/16 at 9:38 pm

Hello all:
I have come upon this site quite accidentally and I am hoping that it is fortuitous. In other words, CAN ANYONE HELP????
I "grew up" in New York City during the 70's (and the 60's which of course I can't remember because I was there!)
I am not sure if this was broadcast nationwide or whether it was simply a New York FM radio thing or if in fact it spanned beyond one station.
So Here it is, Someone has to know this I hope!!!!!
I put "song" in quotes isnce I am not even sure it qualifies as a song.
Okay:
""
It starts off with  "I I just  I just wanna I just wanna be " I just wanna be me I just wanna be me  (repeatedly) Followed by "But You gotta be left or Right, "But You gotta be left or Right" (repeatedly) and interspersed with " I just wanna be me" 
It's an oddball thing but that's what I like and I have been trying to locate this ditty since that time!
Is there anyone else that has heard (and knows) this tidbit????

We have a few members from NY so maybe one of them will know this

Henk and Dan(?) was that his name are the most musically savvy members so they may see this and know the answer.

Good luck to you

OK, so I've seen it, but I'm afraid I can't be of much help here. :(
I don't remember ever hearing a song like the one you're describing. It could very well be a New York thing/song, and I'm not even remotely from that area.

Of course I've tried searching for the lyrics (as I'm sure you have tried as well many many times over the past years).
In the distant past (in terms of internet history) I was able to help others that way, using various search engines. Unfortunately, Google has killed just about every search engine on the market and claimed monopoly. As far as I'm concerned, this has not been an improvement. Nowadays, I find it impossible to find the hard-to-find.
