Simon Saves the Day
Here is the story of Simon
A guinea pig with no hair
He discovered he was different
And thought life was unfair
The piggies would make fun
And tease him ‘til no end
Until Simon saves the day
And they all become his friends
To those who feel you don’t belong
Young or old - you are a star
You’re exactly who you were created to be
Be proud of who you are!
