You're Okay!

Belonging

- we all have wonderful, weird differences! 

 

YOU’RE OKAY!

Our cat Carlos has dandruff,

Our dog Homer has fleas (scratch, scratch)

Daddy’s breath in the morning

Smells like very old cheese! (p.u.!)

My big sister has pimples

That just won’t go away (oh no!)

If something’s wrong with you too, then you’re okay!

 

Chorus:  You’re okay!  Wha’d’you say!?  No need t’make a fuss!

If something’s wrong with you too, then you’re like us!

 

My Uncle Luke is grumpy,

He never will say “Please” (humpf!)

Aunt Lois is much nicer,

But her perfume makes me sneeze! (ah-choo!)

Sometimes when Mom gets angry,

There’s a bad word she will say, (breathe in!)

If something’s wrong with you too, then you’re okay!

Chorus

 

Stephanie chews her finger nails,

Although she knows it’s wrong, (chomp, chomp!)

My brother thinks that he’s too short,

And he thinks his tongue’s too long (twoo lwong)

I pig out on candy,

And I never get straight “A”s, (oh well!)

Well, if something’s wrong with you too, then you’re okay!

Chorus

 

Now if this song is boring you,

Because you’re not a clod, (not me!)

And y’never ever make mistakes,

And you’re perfect, just like God (A-men)

Then we won’t call you “snobby!”,

Or tell you “go away!”, cause, hey!

There’s something wrong with you too, so you’re okay!

Chorus (2X)
