Lyrics Edit


(Trumpet Solo)

If I were a human being

I'd head straight for New Orleans

And I'd blow this horn so hard and strong

Like no one they've ever seen

You've heard of Louis Armstrong,,

Mr. Sidney Bechet?

All those boys gonna step aside

When they hear this old ex-gator play,


(Trumpet Solo)

When I'm human

As I hope to be

I'm gonna blow this horn

'Til the cows come home

And everyone's gonna bow down to me


When I'm myself again 

I want just the life I had

A great big party every night

That doesn't sound too bad

A redhead on my left arm

A brunette on my right

A blonde or two to hold the candles

Now that seems just about right

Eh, Louis?

Life is short

When you're done, you're done

We're on this earth 

To have some fun

And that's the way things are

When I'm human 

And I'm gonna be

I'm gonna tear it up like I did before

And that's a royal guarantee


Your modesty becomes you

And your sense of responsibility

I've worked hard for everything I've got

And that's the way it's supposed to be

When I'm a human being

At least I'll act like one

If you do your best each and every day

Good things are sure to come your way

What you give is what you get

My daddy said that 

And I'll never forget

And I recommend it to you

Louis, Naveen, and Tiana:

When we're human

And we're gonna be


I'm gonna blow my horn

(Trumpet Solo)


I'm gonna live the high life


I'm gonna do my best 

To take my place in the sun

Louis, Naveen, and Tiana:

When we're human

(Trumpet Solo)
