From the recording Heroes and She-roes

Lyrics

My feet turn out when I walk, they always do
No matter how fast I go, in any type of shoe
When I was young it used to make my stomach feel so yuck
When other kids would laugh and say I walked like a duck
It made me wish I could be like the rest
Until something caught my eye on a map of the Midwest . . .
I saw that normal's not a thing that I can be
Every person's different: me and you and she and he
If we were all the same there'd be much less life to enjoy - oy
(No no no) Normal's just a town in Illinois

We all have a lot in common, it's true
But the things that make you different are the things that make you you
Where you come from, what you like, and what causes you pain
How you talk and how you look, and how things make sense in your brain
When somebody tries to tell you you should be another way,
Perhaps you can just smile, and politely say:
No no no!

Normal's not a thing that I can be
Every person's different: she and he and you and me
If we were all the same, there'd be much less life to enjoy - oy
(No no no) Normal's just a town in Illinois
(No no no) Normal's not a thing that we can be
Every person's different: you and she and he and me
If we were all the same, there'd be much less life to enjoy - oy - oy
(No no no) Normal's just a town in Illinois
Please remember: it's amazing, you're the only you around
And Normal, Normal, Normal, Normal, Normal -- Normal's just a town!
