Sesame Street: "What I Am" by Will I Am (video & lyrics)

Heard this song yesterday.  A friend is having her (typical) kindergarten class perform at graduation.  
But I think it's a great song to teach our kids.  Enjoy!  



If what I am is what's in me 


Then I'll stay strong - that's who I'll be 
and I will always be the best 
"me" that I can be. 

There's only one me, I am it 
have a dream I'll follow it 
It's up to me to try. 

Oh! I'm a keep my head up high 
Keep on reaching high 
Never gonna quit 
I'll be getting stronger. 

And nothing's gonna bring me down (no!) 
Never gonna stop, gotta go. 
Because I know 
I'll keep getting stronger. 

And what I am is thoughtful 
what I am is musical 
what I am is smart 
and what I am is brave 
what I am is helpful 
what I am is special 
There's nothing I can't achieve. 
Because in myself I believe in oh... 

Gonna keep our heads up high 

Keep on reaching high 
Never gonna quit 
Just keep getting stronger. 

And nothing's gonna bring us down (no!) 
Never give it up, gotta go. 
Because I know 
I'll keep getting stronger. 

What I am is super 
what I am is proud 
what I am is friendly 
what I am is grouchy 
what you are is magical 
what you are is special 

There's nothing I can't achieve. 
Because in myself I believe in oh... 


Gonna hold my head up high 


Keep on reaching high 
Never gonna stop 
I'll be getting stronger. 

Nothing's gonna bring me down (no!) 
Never give it up gotta go, oh... yeah... 
I'll keep getting strong--er.
