Lyrics

[Todrick, speaking]: Hey, don't listen to them!
You guys are perfect, just the way you are.
Sure, you might be a little different,
But in your own way, you're wickedly cool.

[Maddie]: You try to knock me down
But I get up again
(wey-oh-oh-oh, wey-oh wey-oh-oh-oh)
[Kendall]: It's time to break outta' this box
You try to put me in
(wey-oh-oh-oh, wey-oh wey-oh-oh-oh)

[Nia]: 'Cause we are, we are, we are the quirky ones
[Payton, other girls in background]: We all, we all just wanna have some fun
[Mackenzie, other girls in background]: We live, we love, we wanna laugh out loud
YOLO, so watch me work it out

[All]: 'Cause tonight, for the first time
I'm loving who I be
Turn it up for all the freaks like me
Tonight, I'm feeling so fine
I'm loving who I see
Turn it up for all the freaks like me

The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me

[Payton]: You throw your sticks and stones
But I've got armor now
(wey-oh-oh-oh, wey-oh wey-oh-oh-oh)
[Nia]: You know the old me's gone,
She had to take a bow
(wey-oh-oh-oh, wey-oh wey-oh-oh-oh)

[Mackenzie]: 'Cause we are, we are, we are the quirky ones
[All]: We all, we all just wanna have some fun
We live, we love, we wanna laugh out loud
YOLO, so watch me work it out

'Cause tonight, for the first time
I'm loving who I be
Turn it up for all the freaks like me
Tonight, I'm feeling so fine
I'm loving who I see
Turn it up for all the freaks like me

The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me

[Todrick rapping]: Yo!
This one's for the ones in the back row
This beat's for the kids with their heads low
They can throw a low blow, try to steal your glow
But you got to go home with the show, doe

It's just the beginning (yo)
And they know you're hashtag-winning (yo)
So you just keep on grinning (yo)
Now, baby, keep on swimming, just keep swimming

'Cause we're about to start dozing
These haters wanna start posing
They trippin' like, "Whoa!"; we chillin' like snow
Let it go, let it go, frozen

So shake those pom-poms
If you know you the bomb, bomb
I can't hear you, dot com, com
Too busy starring on "Dance Moms"

[All]: 'Cause tonight, for the first time
I'm loving who I be
Turn it up for all the freaks like me
Tonight, I'm feeling so fine
I'm loving who I see
Turn it up for all the freaks like me

Tonight, for the first time
I'm loving who I be
Turn it up for all the freaks like me
Tonight, I'm feeling so fine
I'm loving who I see
Turn it up for all the freaks like me

The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me,
The freaks like me, the freak-freaks like me

Trivia

  • Everyone portrayed a character for the video. They are:
  • Jordyn Jones was also in the video, portraying Aurora (Sleeping Beauty.) She was a contestant on Season 1 of Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition.
  • Sarah Hunt was also in the music video portraying Alice from Alice in Wonderland.
  • The video was filmed around May 29th, 2014.[3]
  • Christi tweeted that Abby would not allow Chloe to participate in the video. It was further confirmed at a Meet and Greet that Abby said that she would not allow the other girls to be in the video if Chloe was featured in it.[4]
  • In an Afterbuzz interview, Todrick said they recorded for two hours, then shot the entire video in six hours during one day. He attributed the speed of the shoot to the girls being used to learning routines quickly and without mistakes; the girls' professionalism; and the enthusiastic help of the moms. Todrick also said he had doubts about Mackenzie's singing voice based on how her album was produced, but had them erased when working with her, Mackenzie singing perfect and on pitch, every time; and complimented Nia as well, for having an amazing voice.
