If you wanna grow your hair long (It's not a crime, it's not a sin)

If you wanna shave your head (It's not a crime, it's not a sin)

If you wanna wear a nose ring

If you wanna grow some dreads

Yeah if you wanna go out dancing
With the ladies or the guys

To go out with anyone or no-one
Just don't tell any lies 

Yeah whatever turns you on my friend

Yeah whatever makes you feel alright

Yeah now anything you love to do 

Yeah whatever makes you feel real good

Why be normal, why be normal...

If you wanna be a hippie, a biker or a jock

A slacker or a yuppie, a preppie or a goth 

Yeah, a rasta or a moonie, a drag queen or a freak 

'Cause only you can do what you do
'Cause you are totally unique 

Why be normal, why be normal...

Why, why, why, why, why...

Wo-ho-ho, I got to do, to do my thing

Yay-hey-hey, I got my song, my song to sing

Wo-ho-ho, I got to be, to be myself

Yay-hey-hey, I gotta go .....
