The Land Before Time

The Land Before Time - The Lesson

rate me

MR. THICKNOSE:

You know, Littlefoot, I never intended to become such a fibber.

It just...happened.

When I was young, I was very shy

Never seen or heard

But when wanders told of the Great Beyond,

I remembered every word

As I grew older, I told these stories

As I had to live them too

In everyone's eyes, I was good, I was wise

To everyone, but you

That is why I had such a hard time with you, Littlefoot. You’re so curious, so bright. You ask good questions. I was afraid that I would catch a lie within a secret.

LITTLEFOOT:

Rob you with your dignity?

MR. THICKNOSE:

Yes, I suppose so. You see,

Everyone wants to be important

Everyone wants to be heard

Everyone wants to be the center of the circle

Where friends are hanging on your every word

No matter how close you are to an egg

Or how old you grow to be

Everybody needs somebody to listen

Even somebody like me

LITTLEFOOT:

Everyone wants to be respected

PETRIE:

Everyone wants to be liked

MR. THICKNOSE:

Whether you've got three horns on your head

CERA:

Or a beak that's sharp

DUCKY:

Or a tail that's spiked

MR. THICKNOSE:

When you want to be more fascinating

You might say things that aren't quite true

Everyone's tempted to fib sometimes

LITTLEFOOT:

Even someone good like you

ALL:

We want folks to admire us

We want someone to care

LITTLEFOOT:

We want to make a difference

CERA:

And to know that others know we're there

MR. THICKNOSE:

But everyone has their own importance

That's what I've come to see

Everyone has their own special place

PETRIE:

In the nest

CERA:

In the herd

LITTLEFOOT:

In the family

MR. THICKNOSE:

Respect's not a thing

You can make someone give you

It's something you have to earn

Who would've thought

After all this time

There were more things I had to learn

And thank you all for teaching me.

You're never too old to learn
