The Way I Am (Gene Clark)


The kind of man you think that I should be
The kind of man mind do that just not me
And I want you to understand
That I will always be the way I am

The many things you say that I should do
The many things that only satisfy you
But on my own I have to stand
And I will always be the way I am

And I could never be anybody's fool
That's not the thing that I was called all to do

So if it's clear the things I've tried to show
I cannot change and I must let you know
So I will offer you my hand
If you want me darling just the way I am
Am
