The Lyrics

i'm not bad at this blabbin'
blabbin' was tough for me
i just willed it to happen
same thing, learnin' to read

they call me helen keller...(i...can't...see)
they call me helen keller...(i...can't...see)
they call me helen keller

i'm just mad for my teacher
taught me, so patiently
they all said, "you can't reach her"
she did magic with me

they call me helen keller...(i...can't...see)
they call me helen keller...(i...can't...see)
they call me helen keller

she said, "you'll win if you just try
just don't get so mad if you fail
there's a lotta books you can learn by
but, you know, you gotta learn braille"

they call me helen keller...(i...can't...see)
they call me helen keller...(i...can't...see)
they call me helen keller

education from anna
though, at times, i made her crazed
elocution from anna
struggled just to make out a phrase

they call me helen keller...(i...can't...see)
they call me helen keller...(i...can't...see)
they call me helen keller

Powerful tribute to Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan. I particularly like the substitutes for "electrical banana."
