"Love me the way I are" / ("Люби меня такими, какие я есть").

I'm sorry, I'm not the most pretty
I'll never ever sing like Whitney
Ooh, but I still wanna dance with somebody
So lets let all hearts bleed, 'til they turn to rust
Gonna live it up, 'cause it's dangerous
No, I don't wanna play the part
I just wanna dance with somebody

It could be anybody, tell me, are you that somebody?
Don't matter who you are, just love me the way I are
I just wanna dance with somebody

But I could never ever dance like Bobby
You can dance, I'mma watch your body
I just wanna stand right behind it
I just want a chance with somebody
Pop a couple xans with somebody
Every time she dance it's exotic
Throw a bunch of bands arms get tired
I'm the God I just want a goddess
Gotta use a bedroom for a closet
Got a whole bedroom, on the private
I know her body inside, out science
Kiss both boobs right before I sign 'em
Can't dance but kinda grind 'em
Yeah, I be right behind her, spinal
We can turn this dance floor to a island
I just wanna dance with somebody

It could be anybody, tell me, are you that somebody?
Don't matter who you are, just love me the way I are
I just wanna dance with somebody

Bloody noses, speeding cars
Lethal doses, desperate hearts
Roll it up 'cause we so ill
Heaven knows we love the thrill
No, I don't wanna play the part
I just wanna dance with somebody

It could be anybody, tell me, are you that somebody?
Don't matter who you are, just love me the way I are
I just wanna dance with somebody (4)

It could be anybody, tell me, are you that somebody?
Don't matter who you are, just love me the way I are
I just wanna dance with somebody...

"Love me the way I are" is a kind of bad grammar.
Текст песни - люби меня, какие я есть - это плохая грамматика.
Pop songs, and most forms of poetry, bend, break and totally ignore the rules of "proper grammar". See poetic license.
Попсовые песни, как и многие формы поэзии, ломают или полностью игнорируют правила основной грамматики, поэтому и I ARE.

I is singular. Are would go with a plural subject. Perhaps the songwriter is hinting at having multiple personalities? Perhaps they wanted to do some other kind of word play or indicate that "they way he is" is broken, but there is no way to defend that title as grammatically correct!

Я - это единственное число. Are добавляется только к множественным числам. Возможно, тот, кто писал песню, указывает на то, что у него много личностей? Возможно, они хотели указать, что это слово указывает на то, что "быть" (в английском языка - am/is/are) сломано... Но, в любом случае, нельзя доказать того, что этот заголовок грамматически правильный.

The grammatically correct version would be "The way I am."

Правильнее будет все же вариант "Love me the way I am". Но тогда рифмы не получится.
Но песня мне все равно нравится! Очень! :-)
