A million little miracles are running 'round my brain.
My legs are pumping faster than a diesel train.
I'm spinning my wheels
And everything feels so slow.

My heart's a-pitter-patter and my eyes are open wide.
We're stuck in here but I just want to go outside.
I'm twitching my toes
And everything goes so slow.

Everybody's going slow, so slow.
They just sit and watch the vegetables grow
And they grow very slowly, you know?
Why is everybody so slow?

Other times when things are warm and sleepy in my head
A million horses couldn't drag me out of bed.
I'm happy to be so slow.

The world is full of noises but it's quiet in my mind.
My friends all run in circles and I walk behind.
I'm taking my time.
Don't worry if I'm so slow.

I just want to take it slow, you know?
I'll sit back and watch the vegetables grow
And they grow so slow.
Why can't everybody be slow?
