​I Am What I Am

This song is by Linda Eder and appears on the album Broadway, My Way (2003).

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

I am what I am
I don't want praise
I don't want pitty

I bang my own drum
Some think its noise
I think its pretty

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

Your life is a sham
Till 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

There's one life!
And there's no return and no deposit
One life!
So its time to open up ur closet!

Life's not worth a damn
Till you can say
"Hey, World!"
I am what I am!
