I feel like a quote out of context With holding the rest So I can be for you what you want to see I got the gestures 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 'til 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 And 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 want to 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 if 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 Do the best imitation of myself
