I Am What I Am lyrics

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 till 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 sparkle and each bangle?
Why not try to see things from a different angle?
Your life is a sham,
Till 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,
Till you can shout out:
I am what I am!
I am what I am!
 
I am what I am!
(×7)
 
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 my life
That I want to have a little pride in.
My life
And it’s not a place I have to hide in.
Life’s not worth a damn,
Till you can shout out:
I am what I am!
 
I am, I am, I am useful!
I am, I am, I am true!
I am, I am, somebody!
I am as good as you!
I am what I am!
I am what I am!
 
I am, I am good!
I am, I am strong!
I am, I am worthy!
And I do belong!
I am what I am…

Back at school, my then-girlfriend used to sing
