I been cheated, been mistreated
Ain't ashamed of whatever I've been
Seen the good times, lived the bad times
Now I'm looking at the shape I'm in

Ain't got no money, ain't got no degree
But I got me somebody, she's taking care of me
And she told me that she wants me
Again and again and again and again and

She understands the way I am
I can see it in her eyes
She never tried to make me cry
She wants me for the way I am

I used to be so that I did not know
Take the chances when they came my way
Now I live like there's no tomorrow
And what is gone belongs to yesterday

Don't got no big car, ain't got no jet plane
But I got me that one thing they can never take away
'Cause she told me that she loves me
Over and over and over and over and

She understands the way I am
I can see it in her eyes
She never tried to make me cry
She wants me for the way I am

Well, I ain't got everything money can buy
But I've got everything that I need to get by
'Cause she told me that she loves me
Forever and ever and ever and ever and

She understands the way I am
I can see it in her eyes
She never tried to make me cry
She loves the way I am

She understands the way I am
I can see it in her eyes
She never tried to make me cry
She wants me for the way I am
