When We're Human

Lyrics from The Princess and the Frog


[Louis:] If I were a human being
I'd head straight for New Orleans
And I'd blow this horn so hot and strong
Like no one they'd ever seen

Louis Armstrong, Mister Sidney Bechet
All the boys gonna step aside
When they hear this old ex-gator play

When I'm human
As I hope to be
I'm gonna blow this horn till the cows come home
And everyone's gonna bow down to me
Thank you! Thank you!
Aw, thank you! I love you too, baby!

[Naveen:] When I'm myself again
I want just the life I had
A great big party every night
That doesn't sound too bad

A redhead on my left arm
A brunette on my right
A blonde or two to hold a candle
Doesn't that seem just about right
Eh, Louis?

Life is short
When you're done, you're done
We're on this Earth to have some fun
And that's the way things are

When I'm human
And I'm gonna be
I'm gonna tear it up like I did before
That's a royal guarantee

[Tiana:] Your modesty becomes you
And your sense of responsibility
I worked hard for everything I got
And that's the way it's supposed to be

When I'm a human being
At least I'll act like one
If you do your best each and every day
Good things are sure to come your way

What you give is what you get
My daddy said that and I'll never forget
And I recommend it to you

[All three:] When we're human
And we're gonna be

[Louis:] I'm gonna blow my horn

[Naveen:] I'm gonna live the high life

[Tiana:] I'm gonna do my best to take my place in the sun

[Tiana & Naveen:] When we're human!
