Verse
We’re all different you and me
That’s what we call diversity
Every life is like a brand new song

It starts out with a melody
And like the branches of a tree
Grows and grows throughout your whole life long

Change will come for better or worse
And so you add another verse
Sing it loud and sing it strong

Chorus x2
Everyone belongs
Where they can sing their song
And live in harmony
With neighbours, friends and family

Rap
It’s not just about the clothes we wear or how we look
The colour of our skin, the kind of food we cook
There’s more to you and me than just what meets the eye
There’s all the different feelings that we have inside

Everyone is different in so many ways
Wouldn’t it be boring if we were all the same
Celebrate your culture, your family history
And when we’re all together celebrate diversity

Chorus x2
Everyone belongs
Where they can sing their song
And live in harmony
With neighbours, friends and family

Bridge
Listen carefully
Can you hear a voice
Struggling to be heard?
Give them a chance to be
Heard above the noise
That’s something everyone deserves

Interlude

Chorus x2
Everyone belongs
Where they can sing their song
And live in harmony
With neighbours, friends and family

Rap
Everyone is different in so many ways
Wouldn’t it be boring if we were all the same
Celebrate your culture, your family history
And when we’re all together celebrate diversity
