my lyricsbox
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
That 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,
'til 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 its pretty!

So what,
If I love each sparkle,
And each spangle?
Why not try to see things from a different angle?

Your life is a sham,
'til 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 dueces.

Theres 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,
'til you can say:

"Hey, World!
I am what I am!"
