Artists are special celestial fools

Blessed with a talent for breaking the rules

Unfit for confinement in cubical schools

Artists are special.



Artists are people, not primitive fools

They learn what to do before breaking the rules

They know that the brain is the finest of tools

Artists are people



Whether in theatre or music

or dance

They have to be given the chance ...



To fly by the seat of their pants!



To develop their minds!



to be nurtured like plants



Artists are part of the same human race

As everyone else in this same bloody place

you learn to survive or you fall on your face

Artist or not! Artist or not!



I've seen them come and go for all these years

Kids with no talent for anything more

Than carrying spears

Another year, another shipment

Lacking the drive, or the style, or the basic equipment

This one is different!



And I can see me, then...unremarkable me

The kid in the ballet class, the princess I wanted to be

Tutu and point shoes, hair in a bun,

Completely unnoticed, as if I were no one...

This one is different, I tell you,

This one can dance,

This one is special, I tell you

Give him a chance



What did they tell me when I was a girl

Learn!

Day after day when I ws a girl

Learn!



The land of dreams waits over the meadow,

If you can find your way out of the ghetto

Learn! Learn!



Put your faith in books

That will protect you

Put your faith in books

And a mind of your own

Neither charm nor looks

Will make them respect you

you must learn to stand, you must learn to stand alone!



Picture a little girl in glasses and braids

A little starched dress, at the end of the corridoor

She's holding to the wall, waiting for the bell to ring

Praying for the day to end

Forcing herself to go back to her class again

Hearing her mama's words "put your faith in books"

This one is different

Put your faith in books!

This one can dance

Put your faith in books



Artists are special

Artists are people



This one must have a chance

This one must have a chance
