    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 sounds
    got the timing down
    tt's uncanny, yeah, you 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

    phe 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 think it was me
    the best imitation of myself
    the best imitation of myself
