When We're Human Song Lyrics

 
Michael Leon-Wooley, Terence Blanchard, Bruno Campos and Anika Noni Rose
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
When We're Human Louis:
(Trumpet solo)
If I were a human being
I'd head straight for New Orleans
And I'd blow this horn so hot and strong
Like no one they've ever seen

You've heard of Louis Arsrong,
Mr. Sidney Bechet?
All those boys gonna step aside
When they hear this old ex-gator play, Listen...
(Trumpet solo)



When I'm human
As I hope to be
I'm gonna blow this horn
'Til the cows come home
And everyone's gonna bow down to me

Naveen:
When I'm myself again
I want just the life I had
A great big party every night
That doesn't sound too bad

A redhead on my left arm
A brunette on my right
A blonde or two to hold the candles
Now that seems just about right
Eh, Louis?

Life is short
When you're done, you're done
We're on this earth
To have some fun
And that's the way things are

When I'm human
And I'm gonna be
I'm gonna tear it up like I did before
And that's the royal guarantee

Tiana:
Your modesty becomes you
And your sense of responsibility
I've worked hard for everything I've got
And that's the way it's supposed to be

When I'm a human being
At least I'll act like one
If you do your best each and every day
Good things are sure to come your way

What you give is what you get
My daddy said that
And I'll never forget
And I commend it to you

Louis, Naveen, and Tiana:
When we're human
And we're gonna be

Louis:
I'm gonna blow my horn
(Trumpet solo)

Naveen:
I'm gonna live the high life

Tiana:
I'm gonna do my best
To take my place in the sun

Louis, Naveen, and Tiana:
When we're human
(Trumpet solo)
