I AM




                                    Verse                                                    Reverse




                     I am White and somewhat black,                             I am black and somewhat white.
                     you can explore my mind and track.                         explore and track my mind, right?
                     Am I a human being or a zebra, hack?                       am I a human being or a zebra ,quite?



                     I am honest but a little dishonest,                        I  am  greedy,  and  sometimes  act
                     as  you  know  oft  I  have  to  deal  with                contentedly.
                     tempest.                                                   I am beggar, I am Royal,
                     I love truth, with a flavour of lie,                       I act intelligently, I act foolishly,

                     I am happy, I am sad and sometimes cry,                    I am loyal, I am disloyal.
                     I am high, I am low,                                       I praise, I disparage in haste,
                     I bend, sometimes I give a blow.                           I love, I hate,
                                                                                I respond, I react in fury,

                     I am calm, I am angry,                                     I am calm, I am angry.
                     I respond, I react in fury,
                     I love, I hate,                                            I bend, sometimes I give a blow,
                     I praise, I disparage in haste.                            I am high, I am low.

                     I am loyal, I am disloyal,                                 I  am  happy,  I  am  sad  and  sometimes
                     I act intelligently, I act foolishly,                      cry,
                     I am beggar, I am Royal,                                   I love truth with a flavour of lie.
                     I   am      greedy,      and     sometimes        act      As  you  know  oft  I  have  to  deal  with

                     contentedly.                                               tempest,
                                                                                I am honest but a little dishonest.

                     I am black and somewhat white.                             You can explore my mind and track,
