I
am Me


am Me

Me 
I am

That Me-I-am!
That Me-I-am!
I do not like
that Me-I-am!

Do you give 
a tinker’s damn?

I do not give it, 
Me-I-am.
I do not give 
a tinker’s damn.

Would you give it
Here or there?

I would not give it
here or there.
I would not give it 
anywhere.
I do not give 
a tinker’s damn.
I do not give it
Me-I-am

Would you give it 
in a house?
Would you give it 
with a mouse?

I do not give it
in a house.
I do not give it
with a mouse.
I do not give it
here or there.
I do not give it
anywhere.
I do not give a tinker’s damn.
I do not give it, Me-I-am.

Would you give it
in a box?
Would you give it
with a fox?

Not in a box.
Not with a fox.
Not in a house.
Not with a mouse.
I would not give it here or there.
I would not give it anywhere.
I would not give a tinker’s damn.
I do not give it, Me-I-am.

Would you? Could you? 
In a car?
Give it! Give it! 
Here they are.

I would not,
could not, in a car

You may give it. 
You will see.
You may give it 
in a tree?

I would not, could not in a tree.
Not in a car! You let me be.

I do not give it in a box.
I do not give it with a fox
I do not give it in a house
I do not give it with a mouse
I do not give it here or there.
I do not give it anywhere. 
I do not give a tinker’s damn.
I do not give it, Me-I-am.

A train! A train!
A train! A train!
Could you, would you
on a train?

Not on a train! Not in a tree!
Not in a car! Me! Let me be!

I would not, could not, in a box.
I could not, would not, with a fox.
I will not give it with a mouse
I will not give it in a house.
I will not give it here or there.
I will not give it anywhere.
I do not give a tinker’s damn.
I do not give it, Me-I-am.

Say! 
In the dark?
Here in the dark!
Would you, could you, in the dark?

I would not, could not,
in the dark.

Would you, could you,
in the rain?

I would not, could not, in the rain.
Not in the dark. Not on a train,
Not in a car, Not in a tree.
I do not give it, Me, you see.
Not in a house. Not in a box.
Not with a mouse. Not with a fox.
I will not give it here or there.
I do not give it anywhere!

You do not give
A tinker’s damn?

I do not
give it,
Me-I-am.

Could you, would you,
with a goat?

I would not, 
could not,
with a goat!

Would you, could you,
on a boat?

I could not, would not, on a boat.
I will not, will not, with a goat.
I will not give it in the rain.
I will not give it on a train.
Not in the dark! Not in a tree!
Not in a car! You let me be!
I do not give it in a box.
I do not give it with a fox.
I will not give it in a house.
I do not give it with a mouse.
I do not give it here or there.
I do not give it ANYWHERE!

I do not give 
a tinker’s damn!

I do not give it, 
Me-I-am.

You do not give it. 
So you say.
Give it! Give it!
And you may.
Give it and you may I say.

Me!
If you will let me be,
I will try and give it. 
You will see.

Say!
I do give a tinker’s damn!
I do! I give it, Me-I-am!
And I would give it in a boat!
And I would give it with a goat…

And I will give it in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
Love is so good, so good you see!

So I will give it in a box.
And I will give it with a fox.
And I will give it in a house.
And I will give it with a mouse.
And I will give it here and there.
Say! I will give it ANYWHERE!

I do so give
A tinker’s damn!
Thank you!
Thank you,
Me-I-am

Love is all the matters!
