    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, and you'll have yours, and I'll have mine.
    And together we'll be fine....
    Because it takes, Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.
    Yes it does.
    It takes, Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.

    I didn't know Alan Thicke sang it. I thought it was a soul singer who sang it. Maybe it's the multitracking that made it sound so righteous.

    I think Alan Thicke wrote several TV Theme songs. LOL, I was singing the DS theme song in my head as I was reading the lyrics above.....also the pictures of the show started popping my head!
