The Lyrics

This is my ‘tribute’ to all the AWPs who claim that people like me “aren’t autistic enough” to speak to our shared experiences with others in the Autistic community because we’re “not like [their] children.” (This is an improved version of my original upload.)
(Ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh)
(Ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh)

The more you talk about ‘barriers’
The faster I break them down
And when you Walk for Autism $peaks
My people will call you out
You can deny me
You can pretend that I was never born

No matter ’cos there’s something inside so strong
Every person is different,
And, about me, you’re wrong, so wrong
You thought you could make me gone, oh no
There’s something inside so strong, oooh-oh-woah
Something inside so strong

The more you refuse to hear my voice (Ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh)
The more words I will type (There’s something inside)
We can do way more than you believe (Ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh)
Even conference on Skype (Something inside)
Deny my existence, you’re full of petulance
The truth will hit you so hard it will blind you

Because there’s something inside so strong
Every person is different,
And, about me, you’re wrong, so wrong
You thought you could make me gone, oh no
There’s something inside so strong, oooh-oh-woah
Something inside so strong

Brothers and sisters, when they insist we’re nothing like their kids (Nothing like their kids)
When we know better (Better), stare ’em in the face and say
“We’re as autistic anyway”
“We’re as autistic anyway”
“We’re as autistic anyway”
“We’re as autistic anyway”

Because there’s… Because there’s something inside so strong
Every person is different,
And, about me, you’re wrong, so wrong
You thought you could make me gone, oh no
There’s something inside so strong, oooh-oh-woah
Something inside so strong, aaaah-aaaah-aaaah
Something inside so strong (Ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh)
So strong (Ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh)
So strong (Ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh, ooh-weh)

Who gave Autie that idea?

@ Agrimorfee: I made a couple of errors in the original copy. This is the final version. @ Darius: Listening to the Flying Pickets cover on repeat (a Chipmunkised version overlaid on the original to aid auditory processing).
