Accept Me

Accept me the way I am
As I am one of the family.
Even though I’m in a wheelchair,
I must be accepted
The way I am.

Accept me the way I am
As I am one of the family.
When I talk
You make fun of my voice.
Sometimes it sounds funny
To me too
But I accept it
And so should you.

Accept me the way I am
As I am one of the family.
I might be fatter
Than you think I ought to be
But that’s the way I am
So, that’s the way I am.

Accept me the way I am
As I am one of the family.
I rip the door frames
And wreck the walls.
You think I ought to be
A better driver
But I do try hard
So accept me
The way I am.

Accept me the way I am
As I am one of the family.
You think the T.V. programs
I watch are dumb.
You don’t like
The kind of music
I listen to
But you must
Accept the things I like.

Accept me the way I am
As I am one of the family.
No one is perfect
Not even you.
Don’t think about
What we don’t like
About each other.
Think about
What we do like.
So if you’ll accept me
The way I am,
I’ll accept you
The way you are.
