Lyrics:
Best Imitation Of Myself

                 I feel like a quote out of context
                 Withholding the rest
                 So I can be for you what you want to see
                 I got the gesture and sound
                 Got the timing down
                 It's uncanny, yeah, you'd think it was me
                 Do you thing 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
                 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 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 thiink it was me
                 The best imitation of myself
                 The best imitation of myself
