You Can Be Anything You Want To Be is a song from Richard Scarry's Best Busy People Video Ever. This song is sung by Miss Honey and her students at the end of that video. She tells her students that they have had a busy day. Then she sings the first half. Then her students sings the second half. Afterwards, Henry Dog raises his hand and tells her that he wants to be a teacher just like her.

Lyrics/ScriptEdit

(Miss Honey tells the children that they have had an exciting day.)

Miss Honey: Well, children, we've had an exciting day! It's fun to think about what you want to be when you grow up, because there are so many different things you can do. And if you try hard enough, you can be anything you want to be!

(Then Miss Honey sings the first half.)

Miss Honey: You can be anything you want to be.

Just look around and you will see.

It's a busy world and there's lots to do

And this busy world needs all of you.

(Then her students sings the second half.)

Huckle Cat, Sally Cat, Lily Bunny, Hilda Hippo, Freddie Fox, Rhonda Raccoon, Ralph Pig, Gary Goat, Olive Owl, Larry Lion, Bruno Bear and Henry Dog: We can be anything we want to be.

Just look around and you will see.

It's a busy world and there's lots to do

And this busy world needs me and you.

(After they sing the second half, Miss Honey rolls up the diagram.)

Miss Honey: Very good, class!

(Henry raises his hand.)

Henry: Miss Honey! Miss Honey!

Miss Honey: Yes, Henry?

Henry: I know just what I want to be when I grow up!

Miss Honey: Tell us.

Henry: I want to be a teacher, just like you.

(Miss Honey blushes.)

Miss Honey: Ohhhh...

(Then, like the ending animation in Richard Scarry's Best ABC Video Ever, we fade to and pan above the entire Busytown seen on birds-eye view and an airplane pulling the “The End” banner.)

Narrator: The end.
