Could It Be
The Dells Lyrics


Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror
'Cos I get better looking 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, have a girlfriend
But I guess she just couldn't compete
With all of those love-starved women
Who keep clamoring at my feet

I probably could find me another
I guess they're in awe of me
Who cares, I've never been lonesome
'Cause I treasure my own company

Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror
Hell, I get better looking 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 guess you could say I'm a loner
A cowboy who's lost nothing proud
I could have lots of friends if I wanted
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

Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
When you're perfect in every way
I can't wait to look in the mirror
Cos I get better looking 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
Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble
But I'm doing the best that I can, yeehaa!

Yess!! I first heard this as a pre-teen. My mom had the record and I'd come home everyday and play this... Even then I could recognize the beauty of the lyrics and the music... Now as an adult and experiencing that feeling, this song means that much more to me.

+themightydells This is the Dells meeting the Philly sound and it in no way disappoints.

Use to cop some serious feels, with my baby driving me around town with this playing on the deck.
