You Got To Be You by The Lips


When I was but a schoolboy
I dreamed I would grow tall
And man, it made me crabby
That a crab could be so small
With this I tell my teacher
She say, "But don't you see?
Each and every creature
Is exactly how they should be"
She said we all are special
From jellyfish to king
We all do different things
And with that she start to sing
You got to be you
I got to be me
It's simple but true
What else could you do
Who else could you be
You got your own style
Now let it come through
And remember no matter what
You got to be you
Skatefish got to skate
Stingrays got to sting
Catfish got to purr
And Sebastian got to sing
Seahorse got to ride
Flounder got to play
And whale got to make the trouble
All the livelong say
So why should you be gloomy
That you're too big or small
The sea is very roomy
And there's plenty room for us all
You heard my little story
Now let it be your guide
Just treat yourself with pride
You'll be more than satisfied
You got to be you
I got to be me
I'll try to be clearer
Look in the mirror
What do you see?
You see what I mean
Now let us review
Let's see now...
Some may be tiny
Some got the claws
Gills may be shiny
Sharks got the jaws
Down in the briny
Those are the laws
And that is why we sing
You got to be you
I got to be me
It's simple but true
What else could you do
Who else could you be
You got your own style
Now let it come through
And remember no matter what
You got to be you
You got your own voice
You've got to rejoice
You got to be you
Don't be so blue
