I am what I am

I am my own special creation

so come take a look

give me the hook

or the ovation

it's my world that I want to have a little pride in

my world and it's not a place I have to hide in

life's not worth a damn

till you can say I am what I am

I am what I am

I don't want praise I don't want pity

I bang my own drum

Some think it's noise

I think it's pretty

and so what if I love each sparkle and each bangle

why not try to see things from a different angle

your life is a sham

till you can shout out I am what I am

I am what I am and what I am needs no excuses

I deal my own deck

sometimes the ace

sometimes the deuces

it's one life and there's no return and no deposit

one life so it's time to open up your closet

life's not worth a damn

till you can shout out I am what I am

GLORIA GAYNOR, vidder?? This song choice was glorious (if you will). This vid is SO CUTE and omg how much did I love the part from :36-:55 where the song really takes off and the section ends with Batman doing a STAR JUMP, omg. Your lyrical ties are adorable and very clever, and your paralelisms are fantastic (I especially loved "see things from a different angle" and all the kicks from 1:24-1:31 and then the ZIP-LINING and the zap rakk zonks and the BUSTING THROUGH THE WINDOWS). TIME TO OPEN UP YOUR CLOSET TO GET YOUR COSTUMES. You are so clever, festividder. Why is Batman surfing? I love the end with the in-source text. You are a genius!! Thank you so much!!!!!!!! <33333333

I love this sooo much! I mean, it's ridiculous, but it isn't! You took the silliness and you made it so much more, a fantastic anthem to individuality! It's awesome.

This is quite possibly the most delightful thing I have seen all day. The song choice! (And Robin taking off his disguise during the first "I am what I am", inspired!) I am absolutely in awe of this video, and honestly, I'm going to come back and rewatch it every single time I need cheering up.

I am suddenly and vividly reminded of why, as a wee 14 year old with no clue that there even was a thing called Fandom, I was writing joyfully cheerful Adam West Batman fic.


A million glitter hearts. A million of them.

When I saw the song title I expected this to be delightfully campy — which it is, of course! — but I had no idea it would turn out to be so genuinely JOYFUL. I will be watching this again and again.

Some lovely choices of clips to match lyrics here, I particularly liked the wall-climbing sequence.
