I am what I am

Song Author Jerry Herman Lyrics by: Jerry Herman Performer: Gloria Gaynor Submitted by: gilsi
[F]I am what I [Am]am I am my [Bb]own special cre[Gm7]ation. [C7]    
[F]So, come take a [Am]look, give me the [Bb]hook or the o[Gm7]vation. [C7]    
It's [F]my   [Dm7]world that I [F]want to have a [C]little pride in;
[F] my [Dm7]world, and it's [Bb]not a place I [Gm7]have to [C7]hide in.
[F]Life's not worth a [Am]damn 'til you can [Bb]say I [Gm7]am     [C7]what I

[F]    [Eb]    [Db]    [B]    [C]    [D]    [E]    [Am]    
[F]I am what I [Am]am I don't want [Bb]praise I don't want [Gm7]pity [C7]    
[F]I bang my own [Am]drum some think it's [Bb]noise I think it's [Gm7]pretty [C7]    
And [F]so wh[C/E]at if I [Dm]love each sparkle and each bangle
[F/C] Why not try to [Gm7]see things from [C]a different angle
[F] Your life is a [Am]shame till you can [Bb]shout out I [Gm7]am     [C7]what I

[F]    [Eb]    [Db]    [B]    [C]    [D]    [E]    [Am]    
[F]I am what I [Am]am and what I [Bb]am needs no ex[Gm7]cuses [C7]    
[F]I deal my own [Am]deck sometimes the [Bb]ace sometimes the [Gm7]deuces[C7]    
It's [F]one li[C/E]fe and there's [Dm]no return and no deposit
[F/C] One life so it's [Gm7]time to open [C]up your closet
[F] Life's not worth a [Am]damn till you can s[Bb]hout out I [Gm7]am     [C7]what I

[F]    [Eb]    [Db]    [B]    [C]    [D]    [E]    [Am]    
[F]    [F]    [F]    [F]    
[F]    [F]    [F]    [F]    [D7]    
[G]I am what I [Bm]am and what I [C]am needs no ex[Am7]cuses [D]    
[G]I deal my own [Bm]deck sometimes the [C]ace sometimes the [Am]deuces [D]    
It's [G]one li[D/F#]fe and there's [Em]no return and no deposit
[G] One life so it's [Am]time to open [D]up your closet
[Ab] Life's not worth a [Cm]damn till you can [Db]shout out I [Bbm7]am wh[Eb]at I   

[Gb]    [Db]    [Db]    [Ab]    [Gb]    [Db]    [Db]    [Ab]    [Gb]    [Db]    [Db]    [Ab]    
[Am]    

I am what I am I am my own special creation.
So, come take a look, give me the hook or the ovation.
It's my world that I want to have a little pride in;
my world, and it's not a place I have to hide in.
Life's not worth a damn 'til you can say I am what I


I am what I am I don't want praise I don't want pity
I bang my own drum some think it's noise I think it's pretty
And so what if I love each sparkle and each bangle
Why not try to see things from a different angle
Your life is a shame till you can shout out I am what I


I am what I am and what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck sometimes the ace sometimes the deuces
It's one life and there's no return and no deposit
One life so it's time to open up your closet
Life's not worth a damn till you can shout out I am what I




I am what I am and what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck sometimes the ace sometimes the deuces
It's one life and there's no return and no deposit
One life so it's time to open up your closet
Life's not worth a damn till you can shout out I am what I
