(Chorus) 
Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble 
when you're perfect in every way 
I can't wait to look in the mirror 
'cause I get better lookin' each day  
 
To know me is to love me 
I must be a hell of a man 
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble 
but I'm doing the best that I can  
 
I used to have a girlfriend 
but I guess she just couldn't compete 
With all of these love-starved women 
who keep clamoring at my feet  
 
Well, I prob'ly could find me another 
but I guess they're all in awe of me 
Who cares I never get lonesome 
'cause I treasure my own company  
 
- Chorus - 
 
I guess you could say I'm a loner 
a cowboy outlaw tough and proud 
Oh I could have lots of friends if I wanna 
but then I wouldn't stand out from the crowd  
 
Some folks say that I'm egotistical 
hell I don't even know what that means 
I guess it has something to do with the way 
that I fill out my skin-tight blue jeans  
 
- Chorus -
