Verse

And I saw an old fisherman swayin on the dock Swingin a junk of somethin and the string of fish that he had caught His wife had left him just a week before She packed up her bags and waltzed on out the door She said, "You know I don't like the way I am You know I don't like the way I am You know I don't like the way I am You know I don't like the way I am And then she cried right aloud

Chorus

SGhe sang, "DYay-eAe la-oo taDy-ee-he-ee YGay-ee la-oDo tayA-ee-he-ee D YGay-ee la-oDo tayA-ee-he-ee D YGay-ee la-oDo tayA-ee-he-eeeDee-eeeeeeA"

Verse

And you and me walked down the shores of our youth Chasin the sunrise and challenging the truth It's all so distant now, I've seen too many lies Turning my vision into crumbling demise Aww, you know I don't like the way I am I don't like the way I am But you know, I'm gonna change the way I am Oh yes I am, I'm gonna change the way I am Right now, hear me crying Sing, Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-ee Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-he Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-ee Yay-ee la-oo tay-ee-he-eeeee-eeeeee

Verse

The other night I had a crazy dream About a man in a fishin hat he was sellin old magazines All the way from Kingston he had worked his way down And I, I bought him a drink on the night they kicked him outta town He said to me, he said, "You know I don't like the way I am (just like that) You know I don't like the way I am But I'm gonna change the way I am, yes I am I'm gonna change the way I am"

Chorus

Then he played a song for me on a sqeeze-box Say hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hooo-hooo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hooo-hooo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo-oo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo-oo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo-oo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hoo-oo-hoo-oo-hoo hooo-hooo
