The minute Mac Davis began singing "Hard To Be Humble" during his appearance at a Kenny Rogers concert in the eighties, he had the audience wrapped around his finger.

He began the then-unknown song with the hilarious opening 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
'Cause I get better looking each day." 

With each lyric came more laughter and by the time Rogers joined Davis in the chorus, the crowd was going wild.

"Hard To Be Humble" was released in 1980 and was Davis' first country music Top 10 hit. The song was a light-hearted look at how popularity and fame could go to your head.

During the second chorus, the two singers had everyone singing along! The audience consistently erupted into laughter, but how can we blame them? With lyrics like, "Some folks say that I'm 'egotistical'/Well I don't even know what that means/I guess it has something to do with the/Way that I fill out my skintight blue jeans," laughter is inevitable.

Watch the hysterical performance below! 

Lyrics Below

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 looking each day


To know me is to love me

I must be a hell of a man.

O 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 lovestarved women
Who keep clamouring at my feet.
Well I probably 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.

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 looking each day
To know me is to love me

I must be a hell of a man.
O Lord it's hard to be humble
But I'm doing the best that I can.

I guess you can say I'm a loner

A cowboy outlaw tough and proud
Well
I could have lots of friends if I wanted
But then I wouldn't stand out from the drowd

Some folks say that I'm "egotistical"
Well I don't even know what that means.
I guess it has something to do with the
Way that I fill out my skintight 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

Cause I get better looking each day
To know me is to love me

I must be a hell of a man.
O Lord it's hard to be humble
We are doing the best that we can.
