Parents Are People Lyrics

Parents Are People - Free to Be You and Me

[Performed by Harry Belafonte and Marlo Thomas]

Mommies are people, people with children

When mommies were little, they used to be girls

Like some of you, but then they grew

And now mommies are women, women with children

Busy with children, and things that they do

There are a lot of things a lot of mommies can do

Some mommies are ranchers, or poetry makers

Or doctors or teachers, or cleaners or bakers

Some mommies drive taxis, or sing on TV

Yeah, mommies can be almost anything they want to be

Well, they can't be grandfathers, or daddies

Daddies are people, people with children

When daddies were little, they used to be boys

Like some of you, but then they grew

And now daddies are men, men with children

Busy with children, and things that they do

There are a lot of things a lot of daddies can do

Some daddies are writers, or grocery sellers

Or painters or welders, or funny-joke tellers

Some daddies play cello, or sail on the sea

Yeah, daddies can be almost anything they want to be

They can't be grandmas or mommies

Parents are people - Parents are people

People with children - People with children

When parents were little, they used to be kids

Like all of you, but then they grew

And now parents are grown-ups - Parents are grown-ups

Grown-ups with children - Grown-ups with children

Busy with children, and things that they do

There are a lot of things a lot of mommies

And a lot of daddies, and a lot of parents can do
