Like Everybody Else

Like Everybody Else lyrics

Like Everybody Else

Joanna (Spoken):
Go ahead, Theo, make a wish and blow out the candles.

Theo (Spoken):
I wish...that I didn't drop a fly ball every single time...
or go on my rollerblades without falling over...and not have
this stupid baby face so I look about 5 years old...
I wish I could be like everybody else.

Joanna (Spoken):
Theo, why would you want to waste a perfectly good wish on that?
(Sung) If everyone you knew was just like everybody else...

Kicker:
They probably would never have Olympics.
Cause if a hundred people ran the hundred meter race,
we'd need hundred medals for they'd all come in first place.

Joanna:
If everyone you knew was just like everybody else,
you couldn't tell my brother from a turtle.

Iris:
Except one likes the water

Joanna:
And the other hates a bath.

Brett:
One gives off a funny smell,

Joanna:
The other stinks at math.

Kicker (Spoken):
Hey!

Joanna:
Both could use a harder shell.

Iris:
Time will tell, it's just as well.

All (except Theo):
That everyone you know is not like everybody else...

Brett:
We probably would never go to movies...
You wouldn't want to spend your money just to sit and see

All (except Theo):
People who all look and act the same as you and me!

Iris:
Life would be an awful bore.

Joanna:
What is more

Brett:
Be thankful you're

All (except Theo):
Theo!
And you're someone unlike everybody else!

Theo:
But if I only had a body that nobody would tease...

Iris:
Well, I wish I didn't have big ears, but so what?

Kicker:
Oh, give me longer legs.

Joanna:
Without knobby legs.

Brett:
I have a giant birthmark right on my butt.

Iris/Kicker:
So Theo stop your crying and trying to please...

Joanna:
Be pleased with who you are.

All (except Theo):
A one-of-a-kind!

All:
Oh, if everyone you knew was just like everybody else...

Theo:
I guess there'd be a million, trillion Theo's.

Joanna:
And unlike every snowflake everyone would be the same,

Brett:
And when I'd call, "Hey, Theo!"
They'd all answer to your name.

Iris:
You couldn't tell who's real or fake,

Kicker:
I could take your piece of cake!

All (except Theo):
No mistake about it, can't you see...

Brett:
A snake's not meant to fly.
A bird's not meant to swim.

Kicker:
I'm glad that I'm not her...

Joanna:
I'm thrilled that I'm not him.

Iris:
Be happy you are you

Iris/Brett:
Cause two of you won't do.

All (except Theo):
And that goes double if there were a few!
For if everyone you knew was just like everyone you knew then it would be our birthday too!
"Happy birthday to us..."

Theo:
No!
Me!

All (except Theo):
Happy birthday to you!
