Lyrics
I looked in the mirror
What did I see a brand new image
Of the same old me ohhhh
But now I wonder why should I be surprised
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

There was a time
When I wished my hair was fine
And I can remember when
I wished my lips were thin
Oh but now I wonder why should I be surprised
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

[Solo section]

I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

Makes no difference now y'all
How you may feel
I've done reached the point
Where I wanna be real
I'm tired of living living in disguise
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised

I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me
I like the things about me that I once despised
