Pokemon Diamond and Pearl - Play With Your Friends

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl selling so fast they’re breaking sales records - and it's not hard to see why! You can play awesome multiplayer games with them. And, since everybody in your neighborhood is going to have one, there’s going to be a ton of Pokemon battling going down. The DS’ wireless connection lets you hook up with a friend and battle or trade Pokemon. But, Diamond and Pearl go one step further by letting up to eight people join in the game for even more fun.

    Cameron's in drag, makes his father mad Since he was a little boy he always felt more comfortable in lipstick People call him ###, teachers turn their backs Off the bus he runs and runs to get home before anyone can catch him These days the world is full of aliens The world is full of aliens But you are a real, live human Aren't you, Cameron? Powder and a brush can cover any cuts And quickly running cotton under cold water rinses out the blood marks Cameron, you're a star A light where there is dark And you're a hundred times a woman A hundred times the man that they are These days the world is full of aliens The world is full of aliens, but you are a human A real, live human Aren't you, Cameron? You're not an alien You're not an alien You're not an alien Cameron You're not an alien You're not an alien You're not an alien Cameron
