If You Want To Wear Spots

by Duncan Jones

If you want to wear spots, wear spots
In fact, I think spots are for you
If you want to wear spots
Then I hope you wear lots
And make it a thing that you do

If you want to wear stripes, wear stripes
In fact, I think stripes are for you
If you want to wear stripes
Of the zig zagging types
Then make it a thing that you do

If you want to run slow, run slow
In fact, I think slow is your speed
If you want to run slow
Then slow you should go
And so from the race you are freed

If you want to dive deep, dive deep
In fact, it is time to jump in
You’re strong and you’re bold
And you don’t mind the cold
Now go! Get up, and go swim

If you want to be tough, be tough
In fact, some are made of tough stuff
Be tough, but meanwhile …
Please don’t hide your smile
(And it’s ok if you’ve had enough)

If you want to be shy, be shy
In fact, I think you like to spy
If you don’t want to talk
Then just go for a walk
Or just sit as the people pass by

If you want to do something then do
In fact, doing that thing is for you
Some are quiet, some loud
But all make up the crowd
So just do it, then do it times two!
