I am What I am
from La Cage Aux Folles

I am what I am
I don`t need praise,
I don`t need pity,
I bang my own drum
Some call it noise,
I call it pretty.
And so what if I love each bauble and
each bangle,
Why not try to see things from a different angle?
Your life is a sham
'Till you can shout out,
"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.
And there's no return and no deposit,
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!"
