I am what I am

Perhaps this should be our official MoHo song.

“I Am What I Am” by Gloria Gaynor


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 till you can say
I am what I am

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 see things from a different angle
Your life is a sham
Till you can shout out - I am what I am

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 am

I am what I am

. . .

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 am

000 I am, ooo I am, I am I am I am good
I am I am I am strong
I am I am I am worthy
I am I am I belong

ooo

I am

I am

Who whoooo, who whoooo, who I am

I am I am I am useful
I am I am I am true
I am I am somebody
I am as good as you

Uh huh

Uh huh

ooo ooo ooo ooo Yes I am

ah ah ah ah Yes I am

Girlfriend stole that from La Cage aux Folles!

The second man I ever dated felt it was his duty to educate me in the Gay Way. This song was part of the core curriculum.
