Lyrics[]

Janet lives in England, Pierre lives in France

Bonnie lives in Canada

Ahmed lives in Egypt, Moshe lives in Israel

Bruce lives in Australia

Ching lives in China, Olga lives in Russia

Ingrid lives in Germany

Gita lives in India, Pablo lives in Spain

José lives in Colombia

And each one is much like another

A child of a mother and a father

A very special son or daughter

A lot like me and you

Koji lives in Japan, Nina lives in Chile

Farida lives in Pakistan

Zosia lives in Poland, Manuel lives in Brazil

Maria lives in Italy

Kofi lives in Ghana, Rahim lives in Iran

Rosa lives in Paraguay

Meja lives in Kenya, Demetri lives in Greece

Sue lives in America

And each one is much like another

A child of a mother and a father

A very special son or daughter

A lot like me and you
