Lyrics I Am What I Am

I am what I am
I am my own special creation
So come take a look give me the hook or the ovation
It's my world and I want to have a little pride in
My world and it's not a place I have to hide in
Life's not worth a damn till you can say hey world I am what I am
I am what I am
I don't want praise
I don't want pity
I bang my own drum some think it's noise
I think it's pretty
And so what if I love each feather and each spangle
Why not try to see things from a different angle
Your life is a sham till you can shout out loud
I am what I am
I am what I am and what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck sometimes the ace sometimes the deuces
It's one life, and there's no return and no deposit
One life, so it's time to open up your closet
Life's not worth a damn till you can say
Hey, world, I am what I am
