I just found out nothing changed in Life

I just found out nothing changed in my life
my own mother still looking down at me
yes three times in life I have took a wife
they all acted like mom never was free

in my life Popeye became my hero
I am what I am are the words he said
I know I’m somebody never zero
I’ll get this life right before I am dead

life may not have changed but I know I did
in a way I have grown so much in life
and life was so much better as a squid
there is no need to end it with a knife

happiness has always been in my life
and it has gotten better with a wife

    I too can relate to the words, I am what I am...you know I mentioned Popeye to my little second cousin a while back and he had no idea who I was talking about...what a shame....

    I grew up on Popeye cartoons for a while it was part of morning routine before going to school.
