Hey I`m not bragging or complaining I`m just talking to myself man to man This old lentil fat I`m chewing Didn`t take alot of doing But I take alot of pride in what I am I guess I grew up a loner Don`t remember ever having any folks around But I keep thumbing through the phonebooks And looking for my Daddy`s name in every town And I meet lots of people But I always end up leaving on the lam Hey where I`ve been, where I`m going I didn`t take alot of knowing But I take alot of pride in what I am I never travel in a hurry `Cause I got nobody waiting for me anywhere Home is anywhere I`m living If it`s sleeping on some vacant beach or city square Or if I`m working on some road gang Or just living off the fat of our great land I never been nobody`s idol but at least I have a title And I take alot of pride in what I am This old lentil fat I`m chewing Didn`t take alot of doing I take alot of pride in what I am
