I've often heard 
Though it sounds absurd 
There's a certain kind of person 
Who just to get a thrill

Walks through the desert just for something to do 
Flies through the skies with no parachute 
Some folks climb to the highest mountain 
Other folks bathe in Italian fountains 
Swim to the icy polar caps 
Wearing nothing but shorts and a plastic cap 
But I know a place where I can do all that

In my room I have a stack of books 
Where worlds unfold if I just look 
In my room I can go anywhere 
Just close my door and I am there 
I can fight a ninja on my bed 
All I have to do is just knock him on the head 
There's nothing I can't do 
In my room

Some folks drag themselves to Timbuktu 
Just to see a monkey wearing funny shoes 
Some folks float all the way to China 
For wonton soup in a Hong Kong diner 
They take lessons to be fluent in mouse 
Or go to Spain to learn to sew a blouse 
Well I can do all that without leaving my house

In my room I have a stack of books 
Where worlds unfold if I just look 
In my room I can go anywhere 
Just close my door and I am there 
I can have Christmas in June 
Or build a rocket and walk on the moon 
I can do what I want to 
In my room

In my room 
My lamp becomes an Eiffel Tower 
In my room 
My dog wears a cape and has special powers 
In my room 
I spend hours and hours 
Deep in the jungle playing with all the boys and girls

In my room I have a stack of books 
Where worlds unfold if I just look 
In my room I can go anywhere 
Just close my door and I am there 
I can sneak around like a crafty raccoon 
Give me some pots and I'll play you a tune 
There's nothing I can't do 
In my room 
There's nothing I can't do 
In my room

In My Room
