I've Gotta Be Me
Sammy Davis, Jr.

Lyrics

Whether I'm right or whether I'm wrong.
Whether I find a place in this world, or never belong.
I gotta be me, I gotta be me!
What else can I be but what I am?
I want to live, not merely survive.
And I won't give up this dream of life that keeps me alive.
I gotta be me, I gotta be me!
The dream that I see makes me what I am.
That far-away prize, a world of success...
is waiting for me, if I heed the call.
I won't settle down.
Won't settle for less.
As long as there's a chance that I can have it all!
I'll go it alone, if that's how it must be.
I can't be right for somebody else if I'm not right for me.
I gotta be free, I gotta be free.
Daring to try,
to do it or die,
I've gotta be me!
I'll go it alone, that's how it must be.
I can't be right for somebody else if I'm not right for me.
I gotta be free, I just gotta be free!
Daring to try,
to do it or die,
I gotta be me!
