"Me, Myself & I"
WORDS & MUSIC: ARTHUR “POETRY” PAYNE III
C.1979 POETRY KINDA’ MUSIC
Lonely is the way you’d feel , if sounds of voices weren’t for real
I guess you’d say I’m all alone, but there’s three of us inside this home
And if you tried to find the rest, you’d put your mind to the ultimate test,
the other two they’re always on the go, following me just like my shadow
Chorus: Well it’s Me, Myself & I, there’s three you see & that’s no lie
It’s Me, Myself & I, Me Myself & I
When I am down, I talk to myself, myself tells me & they both help
It’s funny the way it works again & again, I’d guess you’d say we’re best of friends
Chorus: But it’s Me, Myself & I, without each other I guess we’d die
It’s Me, Myself & I, I try not to let the others see me cry
Me, Myself & I, to each other we never lie
& when I’m down & feelin’ sad, the others always help to make me glad
It’s Me, Myself & I, just Me, Me Myself & I, we’ll be together till we die,
Yes, Me, Myself & I
I guess I’m not alone, not with two others like Me & Myself,
living inside this body that I call home
