I wake up each morning, and Im proud of who I am.
Cigarette breath and a full ashtray and a cupboard full of spam.
I gambled away a whole weeks pay, in hopes that I'd get rich.
Only to find on Monday morning I'd still be diggin a ditch.

Hey, aint it great to be a man, Ya know Im my biggest fan.
I thank God for my Hibachi grill, and cold beer in a can.
And I don't mind not havin much, as long as I got me.
When I look in the mirror, Im the prettiest thing I see.

I said lady friends, Ive had a lot, but most I can't recall.
But thank you to my polaroid, I got pictures of em all.
I never told a story, or one that was ever true.
And if I did you can probably bet that I lied about that one too.

Hey, aint it great to be a man, Ya know Im my biggest fan.
I thank God for my Hibachi grill, and cold beer in a can.
And I don't mind not havin much, as long as I got me.
When I look in the mirror, Im the prettiest thing I see.

Hey, aint it great to be a man, Ya know Im my biggest fan.
I thank God for my Hibachi grill, and cold beer in a can.
And I don't mind not havin much, as long as I got me.
When I look in the mirror, Im the prettiest thing I see.

Yeah, Ive searched far and wide,
And Ive searched side to side,
I looked all around this town,
And there's nothin better than me.
