The Way I Am
Written by David Olney
Irving Music –BMI)

Maybe you’re right, maybe I’m wrong
Maybe I came on a little too strong
When they pulled me over should have used my head
And thought a little longer before I said the things I said
I ain’t perfect, I’m just a man
I can’t help it that’s the way I am

Maybe I should have stayed home last night
The way I feel today ain’t even close to right
Somebody tell me what it is that I done
Now my baby treats me like Atilla the hun
She’ s seen it all before I think she understands
I can’t help it that’s the way I am

That’s the way
That’s the way I am
I can’t help it
That’s the way I am
She’s seen it all before I think she understands
I can’t help it that’s the way I am

I see you all looking down your nose at me
You’re thinking how blind can one fool be?
Well if you ain’t guilty you can throw the first stone
Otherwise, ass hole, leave me alone
Just trying to be the best damn fool I can
I can’t help it that’s the way I am

Well, that’s it I got nothing else for you
Won’t say another word until I talk to my lawyer
Loan me a dime I’ll try him on the phone
If he’s out of jail I might catch him at home
I’ll ask him how to plead he’ll tell me here’s the plan
You just say you can’t help it that’s the way you am

That’s the way
That’s the way I am
I can’t help it
That’s the way I am
I’ll ask him how to plead he’ll tell me here’s the plan
You just say you can’t help it that’s the way you am

That’s the way
That’s the way I am
I can’t help it
That’s the way I am
Just trying to be the best damn fool I can
I can’t help it that’s the way I am
