Who am I
Who am I
Was it all planned in advance
Or was I just born by chance in July
Who on earth am I
My friends only think of fun
They're such a curious a lot
Must I be the only one
Who thinks these mysterious thoughts

Some day I'll die
Will I ever live again
As a mountain lion
Or a rooster, a hen
Or a robin, or a wren, or a fly
Oh, who am I

Do you believe in reincarnation
Do you believe in reincarnation
Were you ever here before
Have you ever had dreams
That you knew were true
Some time before in your life
Have you ever had that experience
So you must question

All the truths that you know
All the love and the life
That you know and say
Who am I

Will I ever live again
As a mountain lion
Or a rooster, a hen
Or a robin, or a wren, or a fly
If I'm one of those lives
That have been reincarnated again
And again, and again
Oh, who am I
