It’s A Marshmallow World

 

It’s a marshmallow world in the winter when the snow comes to cover the ground.

It’s a time for play, it’s a whipped cream day.  I wait for it the whole year ‘round.

Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly in the arms of the evergreen trees. 

And the sun is red like a pumpkin head. It’s shining so your nose won’t freeze. 

 

The world is your snowball, see how it grows. That’s how it goes, whenever it snows.

The world is your snowball, just for a song. Get out and roll it along. 

 

It’s a yum, yummy world made for sweet-hearts. Take a walk with your favorite girl.

It’s a sugar date.  What if spring is late? In winter it’s a marshmallow world.

 

The world is your snowball, see how it grows. That’s how it goes, whenever it snows.

The world is your snowball, just for a song. Get out and roll it along. 

 

It’s a yum, yummy world made for sweet-hearts. Take a walk with your favorite girl.

It’s a sugar date.  What if spring is late? In winter it’s a marshmallow world.

 

In winter, it’s a marshmallow world.  In winter it’s a marshmallow—————–World,

Marshmallow world———— marshmallow world————— Let’s go!

I Will Sing My Song

I will sing my song, I will make my own music. 

I will fill each day with the hope of Spring.  

I will lift my voice in a song of praise 

And my heart will soar on an eagle’s wing. 

 

And I will sing of truth and beauty, to everyone that I see.

And I will sing a world united, where all may live in peace and harmony. 

I will sing my song. 

 

I will sing my song of a brand new tomorrow

When the world will join in the song I sing. 

I will lift my voice in a song of praise 

And my heart will soar on an eagle’s wing. 

 

And I will sing of truth and beauty, to everyone that I see.

And I will sing a world united, where all may live in peace and harmony. 

I will sing my song.

Life Is Better When You Sing!

 

What would a celebration be,  

what could set imagination free

If there was no music?

No love songs or lullabies, 

or stirring anthems filling hearts with pride

If there was no music?

 

People all around the world share a common bond, 

For we know that life is better when you live it with a song.

When you get the chance, sing loud and strong.

And if you hear somebody else, then sing, sing along. 

 

Life is sweeter, life is beautiful, life is better when we sing. 

Sing! Sing! Sing!

 

Try and imagine a holiday, 

Or marching in a grand parade

If there was no music.  

No such thing as a melody

Or voices singing harmony

If there was no music. 

 

People all around the world share a common bond, 

For we know that life is better when you live it with a song.

When you get the chance, sing loud and strong.

And if you hear somebody else, then sing, sing along. 

 

Life is sweeter, life is beautiful, life is better when we sing, a little bit sweeter, 

Life is beautiful, 

Life is better when you sing. 

Sing! Sing! Sing, when you sing!

Welcoming all inside, where freedom rings.

My country ‘tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.

From ev’ry mountain-side let freedom ring!

Varied and beautiful, land of opportunity.

Let Me Know Beauty

Let me know beauty in my mind, in my sight, 

Let it brighten my daytime, let it comfort my night, 

Let my mind know the beauty that the world has to give, 

O let me know beauty for as long as I live. 

 

Part 1 and Part 2

 

Let me see beauty through my eyes, through my heart, 

In the textures of nature, in the colors of art. 

Let my sight be wide open to a beautiful view, 

O when I see beauty I’ll see it through you. 

 

Let me hear beauty in the echoes of sound, 

From a chorus of voices as music surrounds. 

While the tones ring out sweetly and the rhythms beat strong, 

O when I hear beauty I’ll sing all day long. 

 

O let me see beauty, O let me hear beauty, 

That the world has to give, for as long as I live

Through a beautiful view, that I’ll see through you. 

When rhythms beat strong I will sing all day long. 

 

O let me know beauty, be it seen, be it heard, 

In a beautiful picture, in a beautiful word.

Let me know beauty’s power, let me know beauty’s ways.

O let me know beauty, let me hear beauty, 

O let me know beauty for all of my days.

Raving Ravens Graduation Piece 2019

Peace Be With You

Peace be with you wherever you go,

Deep inside you, like a candle’s glow.

Peace be with you, sure and true,

To light the darkness, ever guiding you.

 

Peace be with you, as long as you live,

For all of your life, a gift you give.  

Peace be with you whenever you fear,

Or when aloneness is all to near.


Peace be with you and everyone

In every land under the sun.

 

Peace be with you wherever you go,

And the peace within you will grow and grow.

Peace be with you.

Child of Tomorrow

Child of tomorrow, look now and see,

This world awaits you and all that you’ll be.  

Yours are the heavens and yours are the seas,

Child of tomorrow, go forth and follow your dream.

 

Child of tomorrow, soon you will go,

Knowledge and wisdom are yours to behold.

Yours are the heavens and all things below

Child of tomorrow, find your dream wherever you go.

 

Walk boldly and humbly wherever you go.

Stand proudly and honor the truth that you know.

Follow where your heart leads for there you must go,

Always remembering the path that leads you home.

 

Child of tomorrow, look now and see,

This world awaits you and all that you’ll be.  

Yours are the heavens and yours are the seas,

Child of tomorrow, go forth and follow your dream.

 

Go forth and follow your dream.

1st Grade Musical Last Song: Bugs Bill of Rights


Bugs Bill of Rights

We’re marching off to Washington today,
We’ll stand before the Congress,
We will have our say!
We’ll face them proud and tall, united one and all,
And tell them in a most respectful way:
“We know you have important things to do,
But we would like to read our Bill of Rights to you.
Our future is at stake. Please give us bugs a break!
Oh won’t you try to see our point of view?”

We realize our cause may take a fight!
It’s worth it if they pass our Buggy Bill of Rights.
Then bugs across the land can all join hand in hand,
Just going buggy to their hearts’ delight.
We’re hoping that the Congressmen will say,
That they declare a National Buggy Holiday.
How happy we will be when folks from sea to sea
Are goin’ buggy all the way.

1st Grade Musical – New Song – Buggy Wug Ball


“The Buggy Wuggy”
When all the people go to sleep and all the lights are turned way down low,

that’s when the bugs come out, dressed in their finest clothes.

Then they strut around all night through, ants and ladybugs, beetles too;

They all come out to boogie at the Buggywug Ball.

Oh how they shimmy and jitterbug, cross the floor!

And then they twist and wiggle and skitter around some more.

Big bugs, little bugs, short and tall. Fat bugs, skinny bugs, wall to wall,

all come out to boogie at the Buggywug Ball!

See how they boogie, boogie woogie through the night.

Stompin‟ and a shakin’ until the mornin’ light.

Big bugs, little bugs, short and tall, fat bugs, skinny bugs, wall to wall!

All come out to boogie at the Buggywug Ball! That’s all!

1st Grade: Goin’ Buggy – Song #4 Fuzzy Little Caterpillar

Fuzzy Little Caterpillar

(Chorus) Fuzzy —— Wuzzy!  Fuzzy —— Wuzzy!

Fuzzy little caterpillar, just crawlin’ here and there.

Fuzzy little caterpillar, just inchin’ everywhere.

I’d see the world anew, if I could crawl around like you.

Oh gee, I’d like to be a fuzzy caterpillar too.

(CHORUS)

Fuzzy little caterpillar, your crawlin’ days are through.

Fuzzy little caterpillar, it’s sleepy time for you,

When you wake up you’ll see,

Somehow you’ve changed so magically.

Now you’re a pretty butterfly, come fly away with me.

Pretty little butterfly, come fly away with me.

Pretty little butterfly, come fly away with me.

Seasons of Love (from Rent)

Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes,

Five hundred twenty five thousand moments so dear

Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes,

How do you measure, measure a year?

 

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights in cups of coffee.

In inches, in miles, in laughter in strife?

In Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes,

How do you measure a year in the life?

 

How about __ love?__________ How about Love?

How about love? measure in love

Seasons of love________seasons of love__________

 

Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes,

Five hundred twenty five thousand journeys to plan
