Lyrics

There was once an old pig who was terribly fat.
And he thought,
“Being fat just is not where it’s at.”
Until somebody said,
“You’ve got rocks in your head
You could be wieners, or porkchops,
for dinner instead!”
Doesn’t matter who you are,
if you wanna go far,
Just be the best you can be

Chorus:

I’M GONNA BE THE BEST ME
I CAN POSSIBLY BE.
I’M GONNA BE THE BEST ME
I CAN POSSIBLY BE.
I’M GONNA DO IT —
JUST YOU WAIT AND SEE!
I’LL JUST BE THE BEST ME I CAN BE,
I CAN BE,
I’LL JUST BE THE BEST ME I CAN BE

There once was an alligator
who was terribly green
Didn’t like being green,
‘cause it made him feel mean
Until somebody said,
“You’ve got rocks in your head
You could be somebody’s wallet
or a suitcase instead!”
Doesn’t matter who you are
If you wanna go far
Just be the best you can be

(Repeat Chorus)

There was once a small sheep
who was terribly shy
And she said, “Being shy makes me cry,”
and she sighed...
Until somebody said,
“You’ve got rocks in your head
You could be lambchops — or mittens —
or a blanket instead!”
Doesn’t matter who you are
If you wanna go far
Just be the best you can be

(Repeat Chorus)

There once was a chicken
who could not say a word
Just being a bird made her feel like a nerd
Until somebody said,
“You’ve got rocks in your head
You could be finger-lickin’ drumsticks
for the Colonel instead!”
Doesn’t matter who you are
If you wanna go far
Just be the best you can be

(Repeat Chorus Twice)
