The Animals – The Real Me lyrics

Iґve been here a million years,
You know who I am.
Sing songs of joy and sorrow,
Iґve not been a sham.
Iґve been in evґry country, baby,
Iґve been in evґry place,
Millions have heard my music,
But they really donґt know my face.

But, ah, this time the
Mirror man came to me,
Showed me ґxactly what I wanted to see.
I said itґs finґlly beginning to be
The way I want it to be,yeah, yeah.
So when I come to your town this time
Youґre gonna see the real me.

Iґve had my name in lights,
Iґve known fortune and fame,
But I have always felt that I was a
Lonely and lost faceless name.
I searched for years and years,
And finally this time

The face I present to you, baby,
I said this time is gonna be mine.
You see this time ........

This time youґre gonna see the real me.
