No One's Normal

Mister Normal dresses formal
In a suit and a tie.
He likes to tell us that we're jealous.
I don't understand why.
He says: if you look like me and talk like me then hey, you're normal.
If you like the things I like like me, hooray, you're normal.
That's normality.

Some kids have a mother and another mother
Or no mother at all.
Some'll greet you when they meet you,
Some go building a wall.
And the things they do in Timbuktu seem strange down in Geelong,
And what feels fine in Jindabyne in Reykjavík feels wrong.
Normal, what's normal?
I think it's probably fair to say that no one's normal.

Ibrahim wakes when the dawn breaks.
His brother sleeps until noon.
Little Heidi is neat and tidy.
Molly howls at the moon.
Now I sing high and you sing low but both of us belong.
And where's the fun if everyone just sang a single song?
Normal, what's normal?
Deep down we're all much the same but no one's normal.
If you think you're alone remember no one's normal.
