Mama Cass Elliot als Hexe Hazel in Pufnstuf (1970) über Freud und Leid des Andersseins: „Different“

When I was smaller, and people were taller,
I realized that I was different,
I had a power that set me apart.

I learned to take it, to use it, to make it,
it’s not so bad to be different –
to do your own thing
and do it with heart.

Different is hard,
different is lonely,
different is trouble, for you only.
Different is heartache,
different is pain,
but I’d rather be different than be the same!

At first I’d wonder, what hex I was under.
What did I do to be so different?
Then I discovered some others like me.

Wonder no longer, together we’re stronger.
It’s not so bad to be different,
be true to yourself –
that’s what you must be!

Different is hard,
different is lonely,
different is trouble, for you only.
Different is heartache,
different is pain,
but I’d rather be different than be the same!
