Have you ever seen a boy with funny clothes?
A girl with braces on her teeth
Or freckles on her nose?
Some kids call them "odd balls"
Some kids call them "weird"
Is it my imagination, or does Aunt Ruth have a beard?
God makes lots of people in all colors, shapes and sizes
He loves them very much and what we need to realize is
That calling people names because their different is wrong
Instead we need to look on them in love
And sing this song:

Chorus 1:

I can be you'r friend
I can be you'r friend
Anyday, in any weather
We can be friends and play together

Yeah, we're all preaty different
Some are skinny, some are stout
But the inside is the part we're
Suppost to care about
Ay, that's where we got feelings
That are very much the same
And so instead of "weirdo"
I think "friends" a better name!

Chorus 2:

I can be you'r friend (la, la, la)
I can be you'r friend (la, la, la)
If you'r hair is red or yellow,
We can have lunch
I'll share my jello!
I can be you'r friend (la, la, la)
I can be you'r friend (la, la, la)
It's ok if we are different
We can still play
'cause I can be you'r friend!!

    When this song was first released I loved it. I loved them all. They are catchy tunes. My sister and I would sing the songs all the time. Then one day, my sister confided in me. She didn't like this song. Surprised, I asked her why. She said she had always found her freckles to be something beautiful. She never considered them something that would make her weird, or an oddball. Yet, to set up those who are called weird or oddball, people with freckles added to the list. This song excluded her more than it included her. It took something she believed to be awesome, and was told it was less than.

    Just a little insight. I still like this song. It has an overall good message. We should just always remember, when we start to label, no matter what are intentions are, it can be negative.

    I love this cute song because it is very good moral of how we treat others equally even though it is racism and our genes that we might have like hair color and eye color. We all different in god's eyes wether we look different.

    I think that we all different but it dosen't matter that we look like it's the inside of our hearts whether it's racism and hair color.
