I Am What I Am

I looked them over
And I guess I thought
They weren't too bright,
Friends of a friend who were carrying
Weapons in plain sight,
I said Piro it seems
To me you know a lot of weird people,
And he said my past
Has tracked me down again.

I am what I am,
I've done what I've done,
I've had too much fame,
That's a thing that I can't
Seem to run away from.
(repeat verse)

Chorus of ninjas:
w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t!
w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t!

He said there's something about your
Stance I seem to remember,
(He's the kind of fanboy
I would sometimes like
To dismember),
I said what do you mean by that?
He said I'm not sure yet,
But maybe my past
Will track me down again.

I am what I am,
I've done what I've done,
I've had too much fame,
That's a thing that I can't
Seem to run away from.
(repeat verse)

Chorus of ninjas:
w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t!
w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t!

He grinned in my face while
Alluding to things I had once been,
I said don't you think it is
Time for you to be leavin',
He said don't I know you
From an anime feature called Girl Phase?
And I knew my past
Had tracked me down again.

I am what I am,
I've done what I've done,
I've had too much fame,
That's a thing that I can't
Seem to run away from.
(repeat verse)

Chorus of ninjas:
w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t!
w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t! w00t!

(Gomen nasai, Simon-san!)

I Know What I Know
Paul Simon


She looked me over
And I guess she thought
I was all right
All right in a sort of a limited way
For an off-night
She said don't I know you
From the cinematographer's party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind
I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

She said there's something about you
That really reminds me of money
She is the kind of a girl
Who could say things that
Weren't that funny
I said what does that mean
I really remind you of money
She said who am I
To blow against the wind

I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head

She moved so easily
All I could think of was sunlight
I said aren't you the women
Who was recently given a Fulbright
She said don't I know you
From the cinematographer's party
I said who am I
To blow against the wind

I know what I know
I'll sing what I said
We come and we go
That's a thing that I keep
In the back of my head
