"Friends seen an` unseen...to you that are ridin` along
I greet you with the holy word `Peace`...
And I`m able to draw whatsaever I want into my immediate
And my mind is yo` mind and I`m sendin` out
You`ve got to remain to bein` yourself...you cannot be
An` uh, jumpin` here an` an` playin` checkers with
Now repeat these words behind me:
You are what you believe you are...stretch out
But I want to say one thing to you today...it makes no
Tryin` to do or want to do, repeat these words
That`s all I, look, that, that`s all I am is what I am...and I`m it
The evenin`, or in the night time...
You are what you believe you are
Amen, an` tell if you had a necktie on yo`, on now, right now,
That`s how bad luck some of you all in...
That you couldn`t hit a barn with a baseball bat...
If you was to sit down by-a-by-men, by a pond, amen,
You just in that bad a` luck...
`I am what I am and that is all I am and I am it`...
