The Smurfs and the Magic Flute - Personality vs. Just Like Their Names (UK vs. US English Versions)

"Just Like Their Names" is a song featured in the United States English dub version of The Smurfs And The Magic Flute. In the song, Peewit asks Papa Smurf how he could tell his little Smurfs apart from each other, and he explains through the song by showing various Smurfs doing their activities that their behaviors are "just like their names".

This song is an adaptation of the original French version's "La présentation des schtroumpfs", which would have a literal adaptation in the United Kingdom English dub version's "Personality".

English Lyrics

Papa Smurf: You think all Smurfs look the same. That's what you claim? They all look the same? Now give me a chance to explain. See how they act like their names. This one's called Sweety, he likes to eat treats. Dessert is the one course he always repeats.

Sweety: Eating up goodies is my favorite game, I'm happy that Finicky isn't my name.

Papa Smurf: Next meet two Smurfs who never disagree. One creates flowers, the other poetry.

Poet: I find beauty in verse. I think your work's a curse.

Farmer: With me it's just fine to do his work and mine.

Papa Smurf: This Smurf is Lazy, his job's never done... he works like a daisy, asleep in the sun.

Lazy: I don't overexert. That way I never get hurt. Sleeping is my favorite game. Thats why Lazy's my name.

Papa Smurf: Call the handyman Smurf to fix and repair. If Clumsy's around, you better beware.

Handy: I just fixed this machine. It was re-oiled and clean. My job's never serene whenever Clumsy's on the scene.

Smurfs: How can you say we're the same? That's what you claim, we are the same. Each one of us has our own fame, simply revealed by us being our names.

Papa Smurf: The Actor Smurf is what this guy's been named, his singing and dancing keeps us entertained.

Actor: Performing on stage is the best of careers...I love to wear costumes and hear all the cheers.

Papa Smurf: A mumble or two is all he'll exclaim. Listen to Grouchy, he will explain. (Pauses) Well?

Grouchy: I don't act like my name.

Papa Smurf: Our Brainy Smurf is really quite clever, but once he starts talking, he'll go on forever.

Brainy: There are proverbs we should all remember...you can lead a Smurf to water but you can't make him drink, a Smurf in the hand is worth two in the bush, and some Smurf is... (Brainy continues talking while other Smurfs are passing a hammer to hit Brainy on the head.)

Papa Smurf: We name this one Hefty 'cause he's so strong. To finish a tough job, he'll work all day long.

Hefty: I am so strong because I exercise. Staying healthy I would advise.

Smurfs: Now do you think we're the same? This very claim, we're not the same...when someone says Smurfs are bizarre, and they want to know just who we are...you can sing this very refrain, see how we act, just like our, just like our, just like our, just like our names. (Ends with Brainy getting bonked.)

British Lyrics

Of course I know what this means, for I, Brainy Smurf, am the master of various languages!
Brainy Head

Papa Smurf: They all look the same. They are the same. They are the same. So, how can it possibly be that each has a personality? This one's called Greedy, he eats all day long. Even as he eats, he'll join in the song.

Greedy: When I smurf on my hand, as you all can see, I eat all the time. That's my personality.

Papa Smurf: Just look at those Smurfs; they're a very odd pair. A peasant and poet, but these two don't care.

Poet: I blend words in rhyme. I do it all of the time.

Farmer: Nothing like me, it's personality.

Papa Smurf: This Smurf is so lazy, he always will shirk. Given half the chance, he'll never do his work.

Lazy: Whenever I get the chance, as you really don't see, you won't catch me at work, no. That's my personality.

Papa Smurf: While the Handyman Smurf decides on construction, the Congy Smurf helps, but causes disruption.

Handy: I have made this machine. All alone, it was me. One hates to smurf, but... that's my personality.

Smurfs: All of the Smurfs look the same; all look the same; all look the same. But you must find what quality makes every Smurf a personality.

Papa Smurf: Singing and dancing and singing some more means our Festive Smurf will never be a bore.

Festive Smurf: I'm very fond of music and fond of jollity. To smurf and dress up is my personality.

Papa Smurf: Although he's quite tough and really quite humpy, we do love the Smurf that we all call Grumpy. (Pauses) Well?

Grumpy: I don't like personalities.

Papa Smurf: He's a very clever chap about life and such, but our Brainy Smurf often talks far too much.

Brainy: I should always smurf the moral tale by which a Smurf in the hand is worth two in the bush, and a rolling Smurf gathers no Smurf, and besides it's by smurfing that you... (Brainy continues talking while other Smurfs are passing a hammer to hit Brainy on the head.)

Papa Smurf: The one to watch out for in our happy clan is the one that is known as the Smurf, Strongman.

Strongman: I'm a happiness Smurf, but please don't bother me or I'll punch you in the smurf; that's my personality.

Smurfs: All of the Smurfs look the same; all look the same; all look the same. When you travel from near or from far, and you met all the Smurfs that there are, you'll see why we're so popular. It's 'cause we have personali-personali-personali-personalities. (Ends with Brainy getting bonked.)

French Lyrics

These are the lyrics for the original French version of The Smurfs And The Magic Flute song "Just Like Their Names", recorded under the title "La présentation des schtroumpfs":

Grand Schtroumpf: Quand tous les schtroumpfs sont ensemble
Ils se ressemblent, ils se ressemblent
Mais on remarque à la vérité
Qu’ils ont chacun leur personnalité Ce schtroumpf-ci par exemple a un défaut charmant
Il est vrai qu’on l’appelle le schtroumpf gourmand

Schtroumpf Gourmand: Moi je schtroumpf le mieux dans ma spécialité
Le baba aux schtroumpfs, c’est ma personnalité Grand Scthroumpf: Regardez de ces schtroumpfs le contraste amusant
Voici le schtroumpf poète et le schtroumpf paysan

Schtroumpf Poète: Je cultive des vers pleins de préciosités

Schtroumpf Paysan: Et bon sang de bon schtroumpf, c’est notre personnalité

Grand Schtroumpf: Si un schtroumpf est très fier de compter parmi ceux
Qui travaille le moins c’est le schtroumpf paresseux

Schtroumpf Paresseux: L’occasion se présente, il faut en profiter
De schtroumpfer au flan, c’est ma personnalité

Grand Schtroumpf: Quand schtroumpf bricoleur construit n’importe quoi
Il est toujours aidé par le schtroumpf maladroit

Schtroumpf Bricoleur: Regardez l’appareil que je viens d’inventer
On schtroumpfe un levier, c’est sa personnalité

Les Schtroumpfs: Quand tous les schtroumpfs sont ensemble
Ils se ressemblent, ils se ressemblent
Mais ils n’ont pas que des qualités
Ils ont chacun leur personnalité

Grand Schtroumpf: Pour chanter et danser et rechanter encore
Notre schtroumpf à la fête est toujours d’accord

Schtroumpf à la fête J’aime bien la musique et les festivités
Schtroumpfer des petites fêtes c’est ma personnalité

Grand Schtroumpf: Sous son écorce rude il est vraiment mignon
Notre schtroumpf qu’on appelle le schtroumpf grognon
Alors ?

Schtroumpf Grognon: Moi j’aime pas les personnalités

Grand Schtroumpf: Il a bonne conscience et le sens du devoir
Mais le schtroumpf à lunettes est un peu bavard

Schtroumpf à Lunettes: Il faut toujours schtroumpfer cette moralité
Un bon schtroumpfe vaut mieux que deux tu le schtroumpfera
Et pierre qui schtroumpfe ne ramasse pas schtroumpf
Et d’ailleurs c’est en schtroumpfant qu’on devient

Grand Schtroumpf: Quand il ferme le poing on dirait un marteau
C’est qu’il a de la force le schtroumpf costaud

Schtroumpf Costaud: Si j’ai bon caractère il faut pas m’embêter
Le poing sur la schtroumpf c’est ma personnalité

Les Schtroumpfs: Quand tous les schtroumpfs sont ensemble
Ils se ressemblent, ils se ressemblent
Il faut les voir dans l’intimité
Ils ne vous sont pas tous présentés
Mais on ne peut tous vous les citer
Ils ont chacun leur personnali-personnali-personnali-personnalité
