Why Try to Change Me

This song is by Brook Benton and appears on the album Songs I Love to Sing (1960).

I'm sentimental, so I walk in the rain
I've got some habits even I can't explain
Could start for the corner, turn up way in Spain
But why try to change me now?

I sit and daydream, I've got daydreams galore
Cigarette ashes, there they go on the floor
I'll go away weekends, leave my keys in the door
But why try to change me now?

Why can't I be more conventional?
People talk, people stare, so I try
But that's not for me, 'cause I just can't see
My kind of crazy world go passing me by

So, let people wonder, let them laugh, let them frown
Oh you know I'll love you till the moon's upside down
Don't you remember I was always your clown?
Why try to change me now?

I am too forgone and it's too late
To try to change me now
