Best Imitation Of Myself



I feel like a quote out of context

 Withholding the rest

 So I can be free what you want to see

 I got the gesture and sounds

 Got the timing down

 It's uncanny, yeah, you'd think it was me

 Do you think I should take a class

 To lose my southern accent

 Did I make me up, or make the face till it stuck

 I do the best imitation of myself



The "problem with you" speech

 You gave me was fine

 I liked the theories about my little stage

And I swore I was listening

 But I started drifting

 Around the part about me acting my age

 Now if it's all the same

 I've people to entertain

 I juggle one handed

 Do some magic tricks and

 The best imitation of myself



Maybe I'm thinking myself in a hole

 Wondering, who I am when I ought to know

 Straighten up now time to go

 Fool somebody else, fool somebody else



Last night I was east with them

 And west within

 Trying to be for you what you wanna see

 But I can't help it with you

 The good and bad comes through

Don't want you hanging out with

No one but me

Now but it's all the same

It comes from the same place

And if my mind's somewhere else

You won't be able to tell

 I do the best imitation of myself

 Yes it's uncanny to see

 You'd really think it was me

 The best imitation of myself

 The best imitation of myself
