Theme Song Lyrics

Now the world don’t move to the beat of just one drum
What might be right for you may not be right for some
A man is born he’s a man of means
Then along come two they got nothing but their jeans

But they got Diff’rent Strokes
It takes Diff’rent Strokes
It takes Diff’rent Strokes to move the world

Everybody’s got a special kind of story
Everybody finds a way to shine
It don’t matter that you got not alot
So what

They’ll have theirs, you’ll have yours, and I’ll have mine
And together we’ll be fine

Cuz it takes Diff’rent Strokes to move the world
Yes it does
It takes Diff’rent Strokes to move the world
