I Am What I Am

So, I’m not a drag queen (yet?), but this song sort of sums up my 2020, and it has been running through my head non-stop for days. I don’t know if I have COVID to thank for it or what, but you’ve all got a mostly brand new Ben. I’m trying to track the versions, and I THINK this is Ben 4.0

Hope you don’t hate it –

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 take 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 it’s pretty.

And so what, if I love each feather and each spangle,
Why not try to see things from a diff’rent 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 deuces.

There’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 say,
“Hey world, I am what I am!”

I Am What I Am
