Theme Song

I know my parents love me.
Stand behind me come what may.
I know now that I'm ready.
Because I finally heard them say!
It's a different world from where you come from.

Here's a chance to make it.
If we focus on our goals.
If you dish it we can take it.
Just remember you've been told...
It's a different world from where you come from.
It's a different world from where you come from.
