I know that I’m quite different.
I realise I’m strange;
that feeling that I don’t quite fit,
you stare like I’m deranged!
I think quite different that I know,
my thoughts are upside-down;
If you say left then I’ll say right
and when I smile you frown.
We are from different planets
you’re black and I am white,
but one thing that is evident
you’re wrong and I am right.
Don’t scowl or try to judge me,
sit back and wait and see.
I really am quite perfect,
It’s not easy being me!
