"Why Can't I Be Like All the Other Kids" was featured in the Season Five episode, "Here Comes the Neighborhood".

Background

Token Black sings this song concerning his feelings of isolation due to the disparity between him, being from a wealthy family, and the other children in South Park from poorer working-class families.

Lyrics

Why can't I be like all the other kids?
They all have three-bedroom homes
Broken trucks on their lawns
And cut-up hot dogs for lunch
It's not my fault my parents succeed so much
There's no one in town I can relate to
I play with autographed baseball bats
While everyone else just plays with sticks and pine cones
Has a boy ever felt so alone?
Well, who needs them anyway?
I won't pretend to be something I'm not
If I can't be poor, I've got to deal with what I've got
If I can't be like them what I need is more rich kids around
So I'm not the only one, and then I won't be so down
Please, God, send more rich kids to my town
