It does take Diff’rent Strokes to move the world … thanks for the laughs Gary!

Most of those who grew up at the time I did, would remember cute little character Arnold Jackson in the Sitcom Diff’rent Strokes. Arnold was played by Gary Coleman and provided lots of laughter with his antics and his very popular catchphrase “Whatchoo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?” … Sadly, Gary Coleman passed away from a brain hemorrhage following a fall at his home in Utah on Friday. He was 42. Rest in peace Gary, and thanks for the laughs you gave us!

RIP Gary Coleman
8 Feb 1968 to 28 May 2010

What'choo talking about, Willis?

Diff’rent Strokes

(Lyrics from the theme song)

Now, the world don’t move to the beat of just one drum,
What might be right for you, may not be right for some.
A man is born, he’s a man of means.
Then along come two, they got nothing but their jeans.

But they got, Diff’rent Strokes.
It takes, Diff’rent Strokes.
It takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world.

Everybody’s got a special kind of story
Everybody finds a way to shine,
It don’t matter that you got not alot
So what,
They’ll have theirs, and you’ll have yours, and I’ll have mine.
And together we’ll be fine….

Because it takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world.
Yes it does.
It takes, Diff’rent Strokes to move the world.
