about

A song about all of life's possibilities. For a giraffe and anyone else.

lyrics

I stick out like a giraffe.
Out on the savannah everyone can see me.
I wish that I could try on a smaller size; take a break from being me.

Well I think I better find a place to hide -
and I just might find some safety in disguise...

I wanna be something else! I wanna be something else today!
I wanna be something else! Wish I could try a different way.

I wanna be a bird. I wanna be a dolphin, wanna be an elephant.
I wanna be a nerd, wanna be a skater, wanna be the president.

Wanna be organized, but not uptight -
wanna stay up late, but not all night.
Wanna get a good grade, but don't really care -
I don't wanna choose between truth and dare.

I wanna be something else! I wanna be something else today!
I wanna be something else! Wish I could try a different way.

I wanna be you... and I also wanna be me too.
There's just so many ways to be...
I wanna be a lot of things.

Well I think I better find a place to hide -
and I just might find some safety in disguise...

I wanna be something else! I wanna be something else today!
I wanna be something else! Wish I could try a different way.

I wanna be an iguana, yeah I really wanna -
I wanna be an octopus too -
I wanna be a lot of things, and I wanna be me -
And I wanna be you----

I wanna be an iguana, yeah I really wanna -
I wanna be a hedgehog too -
I wanna be a lot of things, and I wanna be me -
And I wanna be you----

I --- I wanna be a giraffe.
