I'm not in this world 
To live up to your expectations 
Neither are you here to live up to mine, yeah 

I don't owe no one 
No obligation 
No, I don't mean none 
So everything is fine, fine 

I said, I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  
I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  
I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  
I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  

Don't underestimate 
My ability 
Don't definite my character 
Don't belittle my authority 
It's time you recognized my quality 

I said, I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  
I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  
I said, I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  
I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am   

Learn to love 
To love your brother 
Don't covet your neighbor 

Flee from the city 
It's getting shitty 
It is full of out-a-quity 

I said, I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  
I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  
I am that I am 
I am, I am, I am  

I am the rock of the ages 
You cannot move I at all 
I am the son of lightning 
You cannot move I at all 
Son of Jacob 
Cannot move me at all 
I am the son of Moses 
You can't move I at all 
I am the son of David 
You cannot move I at all 

I am a firm ripe diamond 
You cannot move I at all 
You could a shed more tears 
You cannot move I at all 

You could a full of evil 
You cannot move I at all 
You could a try more nuttin' 
You cannot move I at all 

And you can try make a something 
That can't move I at all 
And could a come with ism 
You can't move I at all 

And could come with skism 
That can't move I at all
