God Knows I’m No Saint Paul

I’ve been Kubla Khan
I’ve been Tiny Tim
I’ve played every extra’s role in Gunga Din
I was Jacques Costeau
in another life
I was the werewolf by moonlight
I’ve been Bela LuGosi
I’ve chanelled Lenny Bruce
I’ve tried being what you need with no excuse  
   But God Knows, He knows that I’m no Saint Paul
   but I’m yours or I’m nothing at all
   I can’t quite figure me out when it comes to you
I’ve tried Harry Houdini
I’ve tried James Bond
I’ve been the Phantom of the Opera when the lights weren’t on
I’ve been David and Goliath
I’ve been Carl Perkins too
Everyone I’ve ever been’s not enough for you
I’ve been Kilroy
I’ve been the Invisible Man
and I’ve been every salesman and his middleman
   But God Knows, He knows that I’m not Saint Paul
   but I’m yours or I’m nothing at all
   I just can’t quite figure me out 
I’ve been Talouse LaTrec
I’ve been Cassius Clay
I’ve worn every mask I own in every way
I’ve been Marco Polo
and I’ve been Buffalo Bill
But all those shoes are so tough to fill
   Chorus again
