The Lyrics

Somewhere in a special ed classroom
There's a kid starting to realize
That there's something not the same about him

It's ten AM
It's ten AM, in class at school
Everyone stares, it's so uncool
People just can't get used to the fact that I look different
Yeah I need a lot of help, I go to special ed
Bullies always treat me like I'm already dead
I cannot decode
This math work, I don't understand it

Help, it isn't easy to have Down Syndrome
Hard to brush my own teeth
I need help with my comb
And dressing myself is a challenge too
Oh, I've got no idea what I am to do
Help, it isn't easy to have Down Syndrome
Hard to brush my own teeth
Need help with my comb
And dressing myself is a challenge too
Oh, I've got no idea what I am to do
Well, if you need to know
It's an extra chromosome
Well, if you need to know
It's an extra chromosome

No, I will never play football
It's so hard, you know
People don't have patience
'Cause I'm slow
My reading comprehension
Percentile two
What to do?
Well I was still in diapers at the age of nine
Not quite ready for potty time
And I hate it when
Those bullies tell me I'm retarded
So I say...

Help, it isn't easy to have Down Syndrome
Hard to brush my own teeth
Need help with my comb
And dressing myself is a challenge too
Oh, I've got no idea what I am to do
Help, it isn't easy to have Down Syndrome
Hard to brush my own teeth
I need help with my comb
And dressing myself is a challenge too
Oh, I've got no idea what I am to do
Well, if you need to know
It's an extra chromosome
Well, if you need to know
It's an extra chromosome
It's an extra chromosome

(musical interlude)

Help, it isn't easy to have Down Syndrome
Hard to brush my own teeth
Need help with my comb
And dressing myself is a challenge too
Oh, I've got no idea what I am to do
Help, it isn't easy to have Down Syndrome
Hard to brush my own teeth
I need help with my comb
And dressing myself is a challenge too
Oh, I've got no idea what I am to do
Well, if you need to know
It's an extra chromosome
Well, if you need to know
It's an extra chromosome
Well, if you need to know
It's an extra chromosome
Well, if you need to know
It's an extra chromosome
It's an extra chromosome, uh-uhhh
It's an extra chromosome
It's an extra chromosome, uh-uhhh
It's an extra chromosome
It's an extra chromosome, uh-uhhh
It's an extra chromosome
It's an extra chromosome, uh-uhhh
It's an extra chromosome

When I saw the title, i started saying "UhOh!"...but you kept this in relatively good taste and empathy. I have a child with a developmental disorder, so I am sensitive to this issue. For future reference, change up the chorus or coda fadeouts, it adds a lot. 544:
