"I Am What I Am" as written by and Owen,mark....
It takes a lifetime to become the best that we can be
We have not the time or the right to judge each other
And it's one life, and there's not return or no deposit
One life, so make sure you like what's in your closet

Mhm, ooh ooh oh yeah, mhm
Huh huh, yeah yeah, ooh oh

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 shame til you can shout out
I am what I am

Ooh ooh, mhm
Ooh ooh ooh ooh yeah
Huh huh, hey hey yeah
Ooh ah

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 danm til you can shout out
I am what I am

I am what I am

I am what I am
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am good
I am
I am, good
I am
I am, I am good
I am
