Dean Martin – I Take Alot Of Pride In What I Am lyrics

Things I learned in a hobo jungle
Were things they never taught me in a class room
Like where to find a handout
While thumbing through Chicago in the afternoon

Hey I'm not bragging or complaining
I'm just talking to myself man to man
This old mental fat I'm chewing
Didn't take alot of doing
But I take alot of pride in what I am

I guess I grew up a loner
Don't remember ever having any folks around
But I keep thumbing through the phonebooks
And looking for my Daddy's name in every town

And I meet lots of people
But I always end up leaving on the lam
Hey where I've been, where I'm going
I didn't take alot of knowing
But I take alot of pride in what I am

I never travel in a hurry
'Cause I got nobody waiting for me anywhere
Home is anywhere I'm living
If it's sleeping on some vacant beach or city square
Or if I'm working on some road gang
Or just living off the fat of our great land
I never been nobody's idol but at least I have a title
And I take alot of pride in what I am

This old mental fat I'm chewing
Didn't take alot of doing
I take alot of pride in what I am
