Songs of self-advocacy and self-determination

We are Vermonters

Chorus:
We are Vermonters; we’re from the Green Mountain State
We are self-advocates, with names like Conor, Dawn and Kate
We are not our disabilities
We are John, Mary, Fred and Nate
We are Vermonters; we’re from the Green Mountain State

There are lots of things we love to do
You’re just like us we’re just like you
There are lots of things we love to do
You’re just like us we’re just like you

We like to lick fresh maple syrup
In a crushed ice cone
We like to watch the leaves fall
From the trees that shade our home

We like to shop until we drop
We know where we you can find some good deals
We volunteer in our communities
Hikes for hunger, meals on wheels

Chorus:

We know how to survive in the cold
The rain and the damp
We are working towards our dreams
Some of us are searching for Champ

We speak up at town meetings
With our neighbors and friends
We speak up at the State House
Here’s the message we send

We want real jobs
There is so much we can do
We want our own homes
We want a life like you

Chorus:

Together we can move Mountains
Well, maybe not the Greens
But when we work together
No problem is as hard as it seems

We take care of each other
We keep each other safe
Our independence is important to us
Our freedom is faith

There are lots of things we love to do
You’re just like us we’re just like you
There are lots of things we love to do
You’re just like us we’re just like you

Chorus:
