My brother Bobby never listens when I talk; Pays close attention though, and watches like a hawk. Took some time for my hands to learn the signs, but now the two of us, we get along fine. 

Bobby's biggest problem is in other people's minds; We do things we like to do and have a great time. Some kids stay away, but if they knew him they would find Bobby's biggest problem really is in other people's minds. 

I've known Rosa for a year or so by now; We've been all around, I sometimes wonder how the doors and the stairs give us trouble with her chair. It may take longer, but we go everywhere.

Rosa's biggest problem is in other people's mind; We go where we want to go and have a great time. Since this city's builders didn't think when they designed, Rosa's biggest problem really is in other people's minds.

Angie reads to me the poetry she loves; Hands brush the pages with the gentleness of doves. Sings me a song from the piano clear and strong, she's never seen me, yet she's known me all along.

Angie's biggest problem is in other people's minds; We go hiking, we go swimming, in the summer sunshine, Anyone can see I'm lucky she's a friend of mine. And that Angie's biggest problem is in other people's mind.

Sometimes the biggest problem is in other people's mind; Be exactly who you are, and you'll do just fine. Things may look impossible, but try and you will find That the biggest problem really is in other people's, other 
people's mind -- Someday we will change those people minds!
