Because I'm Awesome

You know how in a MLB game, the players have a song that plays when they're up to bat? In a conversation last week, Erin asked what my walk-out tune would be. With little hesitation, I picked "Because I'm Awesome" by the Dollyrots. I was in the car with RaeRae when I first heard it and I said, "Doesn't this song totally remind you of me?" She rolled her eyes, but deep down in her angsty teenage heart, I know she thinks I'm awesome.

I often play this catchy tune when I need to get pumped up and it works like a charm. And Erin is right, only I would get jazzed about a song that extols spelling prowess and supersized brain power, and counts neat-o and academic superstar as lyrics. I am the Steve Urkell of 2008.



Because I'm Awesome
I’ve got the new style, uh oh
And I’m walking right down your street
I’m on your speed dial, you know
The one everyone wants to meet

I always tell you how cool you dress
It’s cause I’m fashionably socialized
You’re smarter, better, no, the best
Just look at me

I’m a leader, I’m a winner, And I’m cleaner
'Cause I’m awesome
I don’t need you, 'cause I’m neat-o and I beat you
'Cause I’m awesome
That’s right

They say I’m gifted, uh huh
Well I’m a certified prodigy
I’m gonna own you, uh huh
I’m gonna bring you to your knees

I always tell you how smart you are
It’s cause my brain is really supersized
You’re an academic superstar
Just look at me

I’m a leader, I’m a winner, And I’m cleaner
'Cause I’m awesome
I don’t need you cause I’m neat-o and I beat you
'Cause I’m awesome

Got a career plan, uh huh
Gonna make lots of money
And bought a self tan, uh huh
Don’t I look healthy?

I always tell you how great you smell

It’s cause I’m naturally deodorized
You’re stronger, faster and can spell
Just look at me

I’m a leader, I’m a winner, And I’m cleaner
'Cause I’m awesome
I don’t need you cause I’m neat-o and I beat you
'Cause I’m awesome

Readers, what would your walk-out song be? Don't be afraid to comment! I know you're out there!
