"Friends seen an` unseen...to you that are ridin` along
In your automobile...to you that are sitting at you table
I greet you with the holy word `Peace`...
For with my infinite mind I thinks constructively...
And I`m able to draw whatsaever I want into my immediate
Surroundin`...for yo` minds are my mind
And my mind is yo` mind and I`m sendin` out
My mind to you, you, an` you...
You`ve got to remain to bein` yourself...you cannot be
Nobody else, it ain`t no use tryin` bein` no whirlwind
An` uh, jumpin` here an` an` playin` checkers with
Your own life, that ain`t gonna work, baby...
Now repeat these words behind me:
`I am what I am`...now that`s all you are...
You are what you believe you are...stretch out
