Still can't find the lyrics to "Normal" here or on the web yet, but the chorus is coming back to me.

Let's you and me get normal.
It doesn't need to be so formal.
We'll eat meat and mashed potatoes,
Cut our hair so folks won't hate us.
Let's you and I get normal for a change.

(One of the verses has the lines:

I'll have to beg your pardon,
Let's go out and plant a garden,
... ... ... ...
Plant some carrots and tomatoes,
And if anything comes up, we'll join the Grange.
Let's you and me get normal for a change.
