Mavis Staples — I Like The Things About Me lyrics

I looked in the mirror, and what did I see?
An brand new image of the same old me
Oh but now I wonder why should I be surprised
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

There was a time I wished my hair was fine
And I can remember when I wished my lips were thin,
Oh but now I wonder why should I be surprised
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

Makes no difference my young, how you may feel
I done reached the ṗ oint where I wanna be real
I’m tired of living, living in disguise
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised
