It's taken all my courage to approach you,
Not to mention all my stamina to follow you
Across the hills and deserts.
But I feel as if I'm ready to confess to you
The feelings that I've hidden with great diligence and labor.
Behind the façade of your odd little next-door neighbor.
My eyes are too small,
I have very large feet,
And I'm not very proud
Of my pitiful "Tweet!"
But I've now got a tail that is something to see...
One hundred and two, one hundred and three...
Oh, notice me, Horton,
Feather by feather.
This is your next-door neighbor calling.
Notice me, Horton.
Horton, together, we could be great! [key change]
Oh notice me, Horton.
Put down the clover.
This is your next-door neighbor calling!
There's a new leaf your neighbor's turned over...
Over and over, clover by clover
I was just a no one only yesterday,
But you showed up and showed me something more. [key change]
Now I've become a someone
Who has someone to believe in and to be there for.
I will not give up hope.
I was hooked from the start,
When I noticed your kind and your powerful heart.
So notice me, Horton
Oh the world would be something new...
Notice me, Horton
If they noticed a thing or two...
Notice me, Horton...
The way I notice you.
