I'm playing for a group af kids who all come from families who have an addicted parent. I remember hearing this song a few years ago and if anyone knows the words it would be a big help. TonyK

Copied from http://www.storybin.com/words/words119.shtml

I LOVE MYSELF THE WAY I AM

I love myself the way I am, there's nothing I need to change.
I'll always be the perfect me, there's nothing to rearrange.
I'm beautiful and capable, of being the best me I can.
And I love myself, just the way I am.

I love you the way you are, there's nothing you need to do.
When I feel the love inside, it's easy to love you.
Behind your fears, your rage and tears, I see your shining star.
And I love you, just the way your are.

I love the world the way it is, cause I can clearly see.
That all the things I judge are done, by people just like me.
So 'til the birth of peace on earth, that only love can bring.
I'll help it grow, by loving everything.

I love myself the way I am, and I still want to grow.
But change outside can only come, when deep inside I know.
I'm beautiful and capable, of being the best me I can.
And I love myself, just the way I am.

Thread expansion:

If you are seeking other children's songs or rhymes to share with that group, there's this rhyme:

I love myself
I think I'm grand.
I sit in the movies
And hold my hand.
I put my arms around my waist.
And when I get fresh.
I slap my face.

-snip-

I collected it from a 40ish African American woman in Pittsburgh who said her mother taught it to her when she was growing up in Washington, D.C.

That verse shows up in this example of the song "I'm A Nut".
also i know one that goes like:

im a little acorn nice and round
i live away down in the ground
and every1 walks over me
and that is why im cracked, you see

i'm a nut (clap, clap), in a rut (clap, clap)
i'm a nut (clap, clap), in a rut (clap, clap)

I call myself on the telephone
just to here my golden tone
i ask myself on a little date
and i pick myself up about half past 8

i'm a nut (clap, clap), in a rut (clap, clap)
i'm a nut (clap, clap), in a rut (clap, clap)

i love me, i think im grand
i sit in the movies and hold my hand
i put my arm around my waist
and when i get fresh, i slap my face

i'm a nut (clap, clap), in a rut (clap, clap)
i'm a nut (clap, clap), in a rut (clap, clap)

Does anyone know if this "I love myself" verse is usually a part of that "I'm A Nut" song?

From the pen of Michael Leunig, well-loved Oz cartoonist, and sometime poetaster.

Come sit down beside me
I said to myself
And although it doesn't make sense
I held my own hand
as a small sign of trust
And together I sat on the fence.
