Lyrics

Princess Ember: Every animal that I ever knew
Was at least a little different from the others
And some of were very, very different too
Even from their sisters and their brothers
You can only be you
There's nothing else you can possibly do
It's plain to me that you're trying too hard
So instead, just be who you are
Spike: (spoken) I don't wanna be me.
Princess Ember: You wish you could be faster, bigger, stronger
You wish you could have more than two small legs
You think if you were just a little longer
You'd have more Equestria Show appeal
Spike: Of course!
Every bit of me is short and stumpy
My head and my scales and my tail
Can't you see my skin's old and frumpy?
That's why I'll be the one who's left at home
Why do I have to be me?
Is this what I'm really meant to be?
Break me, shake me, take me all apart
There has to be a better place to start
Princess Ember: Every bit of you is neat and tidy
There's nothing that you need to rearrange
If you ask me, you're completely bona-fide
What makes you think there's anything to change?
Spike: Why do I have to be me?
Is this what I'm really meant to be?
Princess Ember: Calm down, be quiet
You know in your heart
There isn't any other place to start
Spike: Why do I have to be me?
Princess Ember: You can only be you
Spike: Is this what I'm really meant to be?
Princess Ember: There's nothing else you can do
Spike: Shake me, break me, take me all apart
And find a better place to start
Princess Ember: You don't have to try, just be who you are
And trust your two small legs to take you far
