Voiceover

I note the obvious differences 
in the human family. 
Some of us are serious, 
some thrive on comedy. 
 
I've sailed upon the seven seas 
and stopped in every land, 
I've seen the wonders of the world 
not yet one common man. 
 
I know ten thousand women 
called Jane and Mary Jane, 
but I've not seen any two 
who really were the same. 
 
Mirror twins are different 
although their features jibe, 
and lovers think quite different thoughts 
while lying side by side. 
 
I note the obvious differences 
between each sort and type, 
but we are more alike, my friends, 
than we are unalike. 
 
We are more alike, my friends, 
than we are unalike.
