[1983]
Parole e musica di Jerry Herman
Dal musical intitolato “La Cage Aux Folles”, su libretto di Harvey Fierstein, basato sull’omonimo spettacolo scritto dal francese Jean Poiret nel 1973.
Da noi è meglio noto col titolo “Piume di struzzo” e per la riduzione cinematografica “Il vizietto”.

La Cage Aux Folles
I am what I am, I am my own special creation
So come take a look, give me the hook or the ovation
It's my world that I want to have a little pride in
My world and it's not a place I have to hide in
Life's not worth a damn 'til you can say, hey world
I am what I am

I am what I am, I don't want praise I don't want pity
I bang my own drum, some think it's noise I think it's pretty
And so what if I love each feather and each spangle
Why not try to see things from a different angle
Your life is a sham 'til you can shout out loud
I am what I am

I am what I am and what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces
There's one life and there's no return and no deposit
One life so it's time to open up your closet
Life's not worth a damn 'til you can say, hey world
I am what I am
