Well I am what I am could be what you are.
Is your pain when you smile cos you feel alone?
And are you strong enough to be yourself??
Papa used to say "You're just a loser
And you're never gonna have what it takes"
Mama used to say "All that loud musice you play ain't gonna get you nowhere"
Ah you gottta be yourself.
Ah you gotta be yourself.
If you cried, would you hide
Would you want all the world to know
And if you believe in love
Would you let it show
Are you in, are you hip, are you cool
Do you try too hard
Or are you strong enough to be yourself
Papa used to say "You're just a loser
And you're never gonna have what it takes"
Mama used to say "All that loud musice you play ain't gonna get you nowhere"
Papa used to say "You're just a loser and you're never gonna have what it takes"
Mama used to say "All that loud musice you play ain't gonna get you nowhere"
Ah you gottta be yourself.
Ah you gotta be yourself.
If you can't, can't be yourself you're gonna lose it all.
If you can't, can't be yourself what are you living for?
You're gonna find someday you gotta run away.
You gotta run, run, run away.
[Chorus:]
