I was a shy, demure type Inhibited, insecure type of maid I stayed within my little shell Till a certain cutie told me I was swell Now I'm smug and snooty Confident as hell I want to be no-one but me I am in love with a lover who likes me the way I am I have my faults, he likes my faults I'm not very bright, he's not very bright He thinks I'm grand, that's grand for me He may be wrong, but if we get along What do we care say we When he holds me close, close as we can be I tell the lad that I'm grateful and I'm glad that I'm nobody else but me I have my faults, he likes my faults I'm not very bright, he's not very bright He thinks I'm grand, that's grand for me I get a thrill knowing he gets a thrill When I sit on his knee Walking on the shore, swimming in the sea When I am with him, I'm glad that girl who's with him Is nobody else but me When he holds me close, close as we can be I tell the lad that I'm grateful and I'm glad that I'm nobody else but me (Transcribed from the Kristin Chenoweth recording by Mel Pridlle - June 2006)
