And boy do I deny it

Sometimes I wonder what you see in me.
   If I were you? God--I would never spend
Five minutes in my worthless company.
   How you can stand it I can’t comprehend.
The signs are bigger than the Zodiac:
   I piss away my gifts, I hold a grudge,
Blame the whole world for all the things I lack,
   Tell jokes and make remarks that always judge--
How you can see those faults and still see me
   Is totally incomprehensible.
Either you like to keep low company
   Or you get snowblind when it comes to bull--
     Or else you see the good in me that I,
     Because I fear to own it, must deny.
