It's You I Like

Written by Fred Rogers | © 1971, Fred M. Rogers

It's you I like,
It's not the things you wear,
It's not the way you do your hair
But it's you I like
The way you are right now,
The way down deep inside you
Not the things that hide you,
Not your toys
They're just beside you.

But it's you I like
Every part of you.
Your skin, your eyes, your feelings
Whether old or new.
I hope that you'll remember
Even when you're feeling blue
That it's you I like,
It's you yourself
It's you.
It's you I like.


An interactive sing-along of You Are Special can be found on the A Day at the Circus DVD release.

An instrumental of this song is played during the closing credits of Mister Rogers Talks With Parents About Discipline.

A jazzy version of this song is performed by a group of performers (including blind saxophonist Eric Kloss) in Make-Believe on Episode 1184.
