I’m Doin’ Fine Just the Way I am, Enda Reilly 2007

Eve is a lonely lady livin’ in town,
All the old women yeah, they gather around,
“Why don’t you go out and find yourself a man?”

She tells them, “I’m doin fine just the way I am
I’m doin fine just the way I am”

My friend Steve has no mobile phone,
Only way to reach him is when he’s at home,
“You’re livin’ in the past” I say, “Get with the plan!”

He says “Hell , I’m doin fine just the way I am
I’m doin fine just the way I am”

So why not let other people do
What they wanna do
If it’s not harming us
Or anyone else
And maybe do a little thinking
We should do a little thinking
About ourselves

I’m doin fine just the way I am

Pat is a poet, sells his books on the street,
He used to be famous, had a show on TV,
People say he’s crazy (I think he’s gone nuts)
He doesn’t give a damn

He tells me,” I’m doin’ fine just the way I am
I’m doin’ fine just the way I am
At least I don’t live with my head in the sand”

So why not let other people do
What they wanna do
If it’s not harming us
Or anyone else
And maybe do a little thinking
We should do a little thinking
About ourselves

I’m doin fine just the way I am
I’m doin fine just the way I am
At least I don’t live with my head in the sand
I’m doin fine just the way I am
I’m doin fine just the way I am
