What I Am by Will I Am - Inspriational Song

My 2 year old son loves scrolling through watching YouTube videos. This video is one of his favorites and I’m a fan of the song too.

It’s actually a segment from Sesame Street! The song What I Am is by Will I Am from the Black Eyed Peas.  Here are the lyrics:

If what I am is what's in me
Then I'll stay strong - that's who I'll be
and I will always be the best
"me" that I can be.

There's only one me, I am it
Have a dream I'll follow it
It's up to me to try.

Chorus 1
Oh! I'm a keep my head up high
Keep on reaching high
Never gonna quit
I'll be getting stronger.

And nothing's gonna bring me down (No!)
Never gonna stop, gotta go.
Because I know
I'll keep getting stronger.

Bridge 1
And what I am is Thoughtful
What I am is Musical
What I am is Smart
and What I am is Brave
What I am is Helpful
What I am is Special
There's nothing I can't achieve,
Because in myself I believe in Oh...

Chorus 2
Gonna keep our heads up high
Keep on reaching high
Never gonna quit
Just keep getting stronger.

And nothing's gonna bring us down (No!)
Never give it up, gotta go.
Because I know
I'll keep getting stronger.

Bridge 2
What I am is Super
What I am is Proud
What I am is Friendly
What I am is Grouchy
What you are is Magical
What you are is Special

There's nothing I can't achieve.
Because in myself I believe in Oh...

Chorus 3
Gonna hold my head up high
Keep on reaching high
Never gonna stop
I'll keep getting stronger.

Nothing's gonna bring me down (No!)
Never give it up gotta go, Oh... Yeah...
I'll keep getting strong--er.


I love the beat, love the music, love the lyrics. It’s so cute watching my son play air drum and make big muscles throughout the song. I wish musicians would make more songs that appeal to everyone in the family like this song does. PBS and Will.I.Am should really sell this song via MP3, it would make a great fundraiser!
