I want, I need, I feel, I ache, I am, I said I am.

Don't make fun of my six bucket turntable, 16 head overdrive, dual cam carburetor, kick it in the back UH sports stripe, ski rack and jack, beige 24, 1979: Pinto.

Don't make fun of my pin-stripe, belt buckle, polyester two-tone, hanging in the front, can't see my boots (maybe they’re shoes), French-cut: Pants.

‘Cause that’s the man I am
A product of a trailer and it's bed
Don't love me for my mind
I'm no filmmaker in disguise

Cuz that's the man I am
I would not tell a lie, that man was I
Don't love me for my mind
The things I'm thinking best be left behind

And I'm no success story, really
I said I am no success story, really
