David Schwimmer: Ladies and gentlemen – Natalie Merchant.

Natalie Merchant: [ singing ]“Doctors have come from distant cities just to see me
Stand over my bed, disbelieving what they’re seeing
They say I must be one if the wonder’s of God’s own creation
And as far as they see they can offer no explanation.

Newspapers ask intimate questions, want confessions
They reach into my head to steal the glory, of my story
They say I must be one if the wonder’s of God’s own creation
And as far as they see they can offer no explanation.

Oo-oo-ooh, I believe, that Fate smiles down on Destiny,
Laughed as she came to my cradle
“Know this child will be able.”
Laughed as my body, she lifted,
“Know this child will be gifted, with love, with patience,
and with faith, she’ll make her way, she’ll make her way.”

People see me, I’m a challange to your balance,
And I’m, I’m over your heads, how I confound you, and astound you
To know I must be one if the wonder’s of God’s own creation
And as far as you see you can offer no explanation.

Oo-oo-ooh, I believe, that Fate smiles down on Destiny,
Laughed as she came to my cradle
“Know this child will be able”
Laughed as she came to my mother
“Know this child will not suffer”
Laughed as my body, she lifted,
“Know this child will be gifted, with love, with patience,
and with faith, she’ll make her way, she’ll make her way
Oh, she’ll make her way.”
