You know you can't live in the water you'd just be wet all the time
Your hands would get wrinkled your face would turn blue
And you'd wind up on somebody's line
That's why you can't be a fish water is not what you do
That's why you can't be a fish that's why you have to be you

You know you can't live in the air why you'd be in the clouds all the time
You'd get dizzy from being so high and you must have wings if you fly
So that's why you can't be a bird flying is not what you do
That's why you can't be a bird that's why you have to be you

You know you can't live in a tree for one thing the trees're too tall
There's nothing to eat in a tree and there's always a chance you could fall
That's why you can't be a squirrel climbing is not what you do
That's why you can't be a squirrel that's why you have to be you
But it's okay to be you just being yourself you'll go far
It's really okay to be you I love you the way you are (ain't we great)
