I Don’t Have to Be

From the ‘Sing Young, Sing Joyfully’ collection

1.   (Boys)   I don’t have to be king of the castle,

I just want to be me.

(Girls)   I don’t have to be queen of the castle,

I just need the courage to be,

I just need the courage to be.

 

2.  We don’t have to be rich or be famous,

Nor possess many things.

We don’t have to be jealous of others,

We just need a spirit that sings,

We just need a spirit that sings.
