Sammy Hagar – Sam I Am lyrics

Tried to be your paper boy
Tried to be your boy scout
Tried to be your ice cream man
I could not be your soldier
Or even drive your bus
My skills weren't always that obvious

Yeah, but I hope you understand
I'll do the best I can
I ain't no perfect man but Sam I am

I'm a back-talkin' fighter
A silver bullet biter
I'm a flip flop slider
And a guitar moonlighter
I'm your prove it all nighter
Your holy ghost writer
Pale of shade whiter
I'm your rock n roll driver oh yeah oh yeah
That's all I am

I Tried to be your oil man
Tried to be your big boss
Tried to be your broker but you took a loss
It's just a hopeless case
And I ain't no lawyer
I only got a few tricks I can show ya

And I hope you understand it
I'll do the best I can
I ain't no Superman but Sam I am.. And I'm

A feel good doctor
A big bad talker
After midnight walker
Sittin on the bay docker

I'm a sunshine stalker
Hodaddy wave watcher
Heaven's door knocker
Blue, white, and red rocker oh yeah oh yeah
That's all I am

I tried to be everything to you
Yeah, but it would not would not do
I got nothin on my resume
But I can rock you and roll you each and every day
Have mercy on me
I am not sorry
Believe me, it's easy
I'll do my best to be a

Straight shot shooter
A bad motor scooter
Sunny honeymooner
Your heavy metal crooner
Make you wanna holler
Shirt with no collar
Wish I was a couple inches taller
White, blue, and red rocker oh yeah oh yeah

Uh I say yeah, yeah, yeah

That's all I am...
That's all I am...
Baby, baby, baby... Sam I Am.
