I can ride my bike with no handlebars
Look at me, look at me hands in the air like it’s good to be alive
I can show you how to do-si-do
I can show you how to scratch a record
I can take apart the remote control and I can almost put it back together
I can tie a knot in a cherry stem
I can tell you about Leif Ericson

I know all the words to “De Colores”
And “I’m proud to be a Canadian”
Me and my friend saw a platypus
Me and my friend made a comic book and guess how long it took
I can do anything that I want cuz, look:
I can keep rhythm with no metronome
I can see your face on the telephone

Look at me in such a small world
All curled up with a book to read
I can make money open up a thrift store
I can make a living off a magazine
I can design an engine sixty four miles to a gallon of gasoline
I can make new antibiotics
I can make computers survive aquatic conditions
I know how to run a business

I can make you wanna buy a product
Movers shakers and producers
Me and my friends understand the future
I see the strings that control the systems
I can do anything with no assistance
I can lead a nation with a microphone
I can split the atoms of a molecule

Look at me!
