What makes a kettle whistle?
What makes gold precious?
How come some people, they'll show you everything?
How come some people, they don't like nothing at all?
Well I know why. . .
We all want to be
Beautiful too. . .
Beautiful too. . .
What makes a baby cry?
What makes a poor baby older than a rich one?
And why do we need to belong to someone else. . .
Well I know why. . .
We all want to be. . .
Beautiful too. . .
Beautiful too. . .

    My Opinioni think its about peoples values and how they feel about them. as well as how culture separates people into different categories.
