I might not be a star
I might not be a beauty
But that twinkle in my eyes
And the smile that’s always on my lips
Shows that I am content to be me

Power can’t make me content
Yes I need not cower where power is concerned
Because it could all be gone in an hour
But I am doing what I like
And I like what I do
And I am content as can be

I walk high and tall
And I know I am not going fall
Because despite all the things I lack
I’ve got more than someone else
And so, I need not envy another
Who’s got more than I do
And that means that I am content as I am
