Download contains:  Piano-vocal score, lyric sheet, mp3 demo & backing tracks


Theme  -  imagination, wishful thinking, realism, fantasy


Content  -  It's fun to pretend you are someone else - someone that's larger than life - a famous figure or even a superhero.  You can imagine seeing life through someone else's eyes, but 'all the same you're still just you - that's the way it goes!'  An unusual song with a great backing track that always goes down well with this age group.

Lyrics sample
I’d like to be Charlie Chaplin for a while

To make you smile.

I’d like to be Cleopatra for a day –

Get my own way!

I’d like to be Sherlock Holmes

For quite some time solving crime

In a deerstalker hat: I’d fancy that!

So just pretend you’re in their shoes!

You can be anyone you choose,

Try their lives: go in disguise!

See the world

Through someone else’s eyes.

This song features in the outstanding contemporary musical 'Bully!', which - despite it's seemingly dark theme - is full of fun and very appealing and relevant to children, who inevitably understand its PSHE content very well !
