shut up the voices that tell you that you’re the wrong size
or say that you’re too specific to represent
the problem comes not from the subject but just from their eyes
and I say there’s nothing unlovable about a giant

Clifford the Big Red Dog
crushes both cars and men
Clifford’s of epic size
he would do it again
Clifford is full of love
stuff happens now and then

but Clifford is not too big no he’s not
Clifford is not too tall no he’s not
if Clifford doesn’t fit
then the world is too small

shut up the voices that say you take too much space
whenever your shoes are just tall or your dress is just tight
I don’t agree that there’s anything wrong with your face
no matter the scale, my friend,
I think that you fit just right

Clifford the Big Red Dog
says that he loves you too
Clifford has ruined lives
but he has made it through
the island knows his worth
friend if you only knew…

you are not too big, no you’re not
you are not too tall, no you’re not
friend if you don’t fit in
then they’re thinking too small
they’re just thinking too small
they’re just thinking too small
