Song Meaning
Verse 1
I am what I am
I am my own special creation
So come take a look
Give me the hook or the ovation
Verse 2
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
Hey world I am what I am
Verse 3
I am what I am
I don't want praise
I don't want pity
I bang my own drum
Verse 4
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 different angle
Verse 5
Your life is a sham till you can say
Hey world I am what I am
I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses
Verse 6
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the ace
Sometimes the deuces
It's my life and there's no return and no deposit
Verse 7
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
