You Are You

Written by Fred Rogers | © 1972 Fred M. Rogers


VERSE
I eat and you do too.
You sleep and I do too.
I wake up and you do too.
So we two do so much the same,
But I'm Mister Rogers,
And you have your name.

CHORUS
You are you and I am I
And we will always be
Quite different to people who know us well
'Cause they're the ones who like us to be different.

You are you and I am I
And we will never be
Exactly like anybody else 'cause everybody else is different
Different, different, we are different.
Isn't it great to be different
You and I and he and she and isn't it great to be...
You...and I...and we will always be
Quite different to people who know us well,
'Cause they're the ones who like us,
They really want us
They're the ones who like us to be different.
