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
That i want to have a little pride in - my word,
And it's not a place i have to hide in
Life's not worth a damn, `til you can say:
,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 and see things from a diff'rent angel?
Your life is a sham, `til you can shout out:
,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 `til you can shout out:
,i am what i am

I am what i am, am 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
