I've Gotta Be Me Steve Lawrence, from Golden Rainbow, Sammy Davis Jr. (#11 in 1969)

Whether I'm right or whether I'm wrong
Whether I find a place in this world or never belong.
I've Gotta Be Me! I've Gotta Be Me!
What else can I be but what I am?

I want to live! Not merely survive!
And I won't give up this dream of life that keeps me alive!
I've Gotta Be Me! I've Gotta Be Me!
The dream that I see makes me what I am!

That far away prize, a world of success,
Is waiting for me if I heed the call.
I won't settle down, or settle for less,
As long as there's half a chance that I can have it all!

I'll go it alone. That's how it must be.
I can't be right for somebody else if I'm not right for me.
I've gotta be free! I've gotta be free!
Daring to try to do it or die!
I've Gotta Be Me!
