Lyrics

I know he's not real but I'd love to be,
That ginger wizard whose name is Ron Weasley,
Yeah that would be sweet.
It doesn't matter that he's not the coolest,
It doesn't matter that he gets things wrong sometimes,
He still gets his girl.
Can you imagine the fun you could have with a magic wand
And the knowledge of potions?
And though I'll never be a wizard I'm still happy to be me
And have plenty to dream of.

Cos there are thousands of things that I would like to be,
But I'm not cos I'm just me.
And I won't get down and I'll try not to frown,
Cos I am who I am and I've got what I've got and that's fine.

When I was young I used to count the stars,
And wonder if it would be me that would walk upon Mars,
Yeah that would be sweet.
I read each book I could about space travel,
And watched the shows on the discovery channel,
They used to call me a geek.
Can you imagine the fun that you could have in a spaceship
With zero gravity?
And though I'll never be a spaceman I'm still happy to be me,
And have plenty to dream of.

Cos there are thousands of things that I would like to be,
But I'm not cos I'm just me.
And I won't get down and I'll try not to frown,
Cos I am who I am and I've got what I've got and that's fine.
Yeah I am who I am and I've got what I've got and that's fine.

And isn't it fun to believe all the things that we can do when we're dreaming?
And if I could make them come true then I'd probably still find reasons for moaning
Though I believe what was said by Doc Brown,
"If you put your mind to it you can achieve anything"
But no amount of effort will ever make me be
A wizard or a Jedi or a time travelling doctor
A hobbit or Spiderman or the President of America

Cos there are thousands of things that I would like to be,
But I'm not cos I'm just me.
And I won't get down and I'll try not to frown,
Cos I am who I am and I've got what I've got and that's fine.
Yeah I am who I am and I've got what I've got and that's fine.
Yeah I am who I am and I've got what I've got and that's fine.
