Musical Monday..... I'm Proud to be Me!

This is a song/poem that I learned while working at a summer camp in Alaska.
I researched it and as far as I can tell the song to be of unknown origins.
It's a great song for kids about diversity and tolerance.
I wish I could sing it for you but it would work as a sort of up tempo chant. Experiment with it.


I"m Proud to be Me

I'm proud to be me but I also see
You're just as proud to be you.
We might look at things a bit differently
But lots of good people do.

That's just human nature
So why should I hate you
For being as human as I?

We get what we give.
If we live and let live
We'll both get along if we try.

I'm proud to be me, and I also see
You're just as proud to be you.

It's true!

You're just as proud to be you!

The song was written in 1947 by Hy Zaret and Lou Singer, as part of a set called "Little Songs on Big Subjects". For more information, please see
