Love this song. Blasted it on my way home today, and am doing so again right now. JB sings his heart out with this one.

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 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 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 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
Till you can say
Hey world
I am what I am

Pretty great message. Someone or something needs to adopt it as a theme song. It's high on my list of candidates, anyway...fairly equal opportunity.

Yeah. Pretty much it for right now.
