    If you think I’m quiet

    You’ve got it all wrong.

    As I can be quite lively

    And chat all day long!

    If you think I’m ordinary

    You’re way off your peak.

    There’s no one else like me,

    That’s ’cause I’m unique!

    If you think I’m special,

    You’re very close there!

    It’s actually something we all have—

    It’s an Identity we all share!
