I wanna be like Kingston

For all you non-parents out there, these lyrics are from Sesame Street's Kingston Livingston III. I searched for a copy of the actual clip from the show, but no such luck

Im Kingston Livingston the Third, as in three
Named after my dad, and his dad before me
But Im an original, one of a kind, unique
So kick back and listen up while I speak

I watch all my friends flip their caps to the back
But I kept mine to the front because I like it like that
Not trying to be different, just doing my own thing
So come on, clap your hands and sing

Be yourself, easy as ABC
Cant be no one else
Just happy to be me

I went to a party just the other day
With all my friends from school and around the way
The music was playing they all jumped to their feet
But I danced to a drummer with a different kind of beat
My friends want to know why I dont move like them
I said, your dance is cool, but I dance like Kingston
I like your style, but Ive got my own thing
So come on, and clap your hands and sing

Be yourself, easy as ABC
Cant be no one else
Just happy to be me

I was reading a book one day at home
When I heard the ring-ring of the telephone
It was a couple of friends inviting me out to play
But I said Im kind of busy, maybe later today
You see, right now Im exercising my imagination
Id rather read than skate, I said without hesitation
Not trying to be different, just doing the Kingston thing

So come on, clap your hands and sing
(When hes cooking up a meal)
I do it my way
(When hes got a base to steal)
I do it my way
(When hes riding a bike)
I do it my way
(When hes going for a hike)
I do it my way
(When hes picking clothes to wear)
I do it my way
(When hes combing out his hair)
I do it my way
(When he wants to just cool)
I do it my way
(When its time to go to school)
You know I do that the right way!

Be yourself, easy as ABC
Cant be no one else
Just happy to be me
Just happy to, happy to be me
Me!

I still like watching sesame street. I don't need excuses, just being myself.
