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!
