I May Not Be
I may not be the smartest man that ever walked this Earth.
But, I examine all the facts, to determine what they're worth.
I may not the kind of man that would stand out in the crowd,
But, I'll always stand behind my friends, and, of that, I'm very proud.
I may not be the kind of man to pass each and every test,
But, I am the kind of man who will always give his best.
I may not the kind of man you'd want for company,
I'm a little rough around the edges, and that's the way I'll always be.
So, if you stop to chat with me,
and think me quite uncouth.
Just fire away your questions, and you'll always hear the truth.
I may not be the kind of man you'd like to call your friend,
But, I'm there each time I'm called upon, and I'll be there 'til the end
And if you think I'm not the man that you think I should be,
When I look into a mirror, A nice man's looking back at me.
I may not be a lot of things that you would have me be...
Diversity's the "Spice of Life"...
That's why You're You...and I am me.

|Marvellous self portrait...You know you, that's far more than many can say.
I'm glad to know you, I appreciate the straight talking man.
