lyrics

There's a tiny paper elephant
With a tiny paper friend
And they don't know what they're doing on the table

There's a larger kind of elephant
And it lives inside of you
And it knows that you can make it
If you hit the follow-through…

It is a mystery
Everyone's got something going on these days
And we don't have all the answers
For the questions that are raised…
But you can do it.

There's a kiwi with a scarf on
There's a bird that looks surprised
And they know that you will get there in your time
There's a mislabeled Kenobi
There's a can wearing a tie
And they know that life can feel like you're a Jedi with no wine

But don't worry if it's not the same
If you never see the sign
'Cause the things that make you different
Are what really make you shine

You're a unique combination
You're the sum of all your parts
You're an egg with great potential
And it's not too late to start

So when you think of something peculiar
That's when you take your chance
'Cause the weirdest stuff's your moment
You take that kick in the pants

You won't know quite when it's perfect
And you might still see the seams
Just ride that elephant inside you
To the goalpost of your dreams

'Cause you can do it.
We know you can do it.
We all know you can do it.
