1st/2nd Grade

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. 

 

I will sing my song. 

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!

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.

2nd Grade – New Song – Seasons of Love

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

Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes,

How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?  

 

How about __ love?__________ How about Love?

How about love? measure in love

Seasons of love________seasons of love__________

1st Grade: Goin’ Buggy – Song #3 The Honeybee Song

The Honeybee Song

Bzzzzzzz! Bzzzzzzz!

Bees! Bees! Bees! Bees! Buzzin’ in bushes, buzzin’ in trees!

Buzzin’ around wherever they please. There’s nothing so sweet as a honeybee!

They gather pollen from flow’rs you see, then fly back home as fast as can be.

They work and work so  bzzzzily to make sweet honey for you and me. Oh, yes, they make sweet honey for you and me.

Bzzzzzzz! Bzzzzzzz!

Bees! Bees! Bees! Bees! Buzzin’ in bushes, buzzin’ in trees!

Buzzin’ around wherever they please. There’s nothing so sweet as a honeybee!

And when you bump into a bee again, be sure to say, “I thank you my friend,

for makin’ such a tasty treat. Ooh-ooh! Your honey is oh! so sweet! Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh! Your honey is oh! so sweet!”

Bees! Bees! Bees! Bees! Buzzin’ in bushes, buzzin’ in trees!

Buzzin’ around wherever they please. There’s nothing so sweet, there’s nothing so sweet, there’s nothing so sweet as the honey bee.

BZZT!

1st Grade: Goin’ Buggy – Song #2 Firefly, Firefly

Firefly, Firefly

Firefly, firefly, glowing in the night, firefly, firefly, what a pretty sight!

No battery or wire, yet you set the sky a fire, sparkling with your magic light.

Firefly, firefly, we would like to know, firefly, firefly, how we keep a glow!

Oh, you’re the main attraction with your chemical reaction. Now it’s time to start the show.

 

Let your nightlight shine all around the world.  Brighten up the sky for ev’ry boy and girl.

Let your nightlight shine with a magic glow.  Fly on and let it glimmer ev’rywhere you go.

Let your nightlight shine all around the world.  Brighten up the sky for ev’ry boy and girl.

Let your nightlight shine with a magic glow.

Fly on and let it glimmer, with a sparkle never dimmer; keep that bight and happy shimmer,

Ev’rywhere you go!

2nd Grade – New Song! For Good

For Good

I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason.

Bringing something we must learn and we are led to those, who help us most to grow

If we let them, and we help them in return.

Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true.

But I know I’m who I am today because I knew you.

 

Like a comet pulled from orbit, as it passes a sun.

Like a stream that meets a boulder, halfway through the wood.

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better? But because I knew you

I have been changed for good.

 

It well may be that we will never meet again, in this lifetime.

so let me say before we part, so much of me is made of what I learned from you,

You’ll be with me, like a handprint on my heart.

 

and now whatever way our stories end,

I know you have rewritten mine, by being my friend

 

Like a ship blown from his mooring, by a wind off the sea,

like a seed dropped by a sky bird in a distant wood

Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?

I do believe I have been changed for the better.

 

and because I knew you… I have been changed. For good.

New Song! 2nd Grade: I Whistle A Happy Tune

 

I Whistle A Happy Tune

Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect,

and whistle a happy tune, so no one will suspect, I’m afraid

While shivering in my shoes, I strike a careless pose,

and whistle a happy tune, and no one ever knows I’m afraid.

 

The result of this deception is very strange to tell.

For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well.

 

I whistle a happy tune, and ev’ry single time,

the happiness in the tune, convinces me that I’m not afraid.

The result of this deception is very strange to tell.

For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well.

I whistle a happy tune, and ev’ry single time,

the happiness in the tune, convinces me that I’m not afraid.

Make believe you’re brave and the trick will take you far.

You may be as brave, as you make believe you are. (whistle)

Whenever I feel afraid, I hold my head erect,

and whistle a happy tune, so no one will suspect, I’m afraid

While shivering in my shoes, I strike a careless pose,

and whistle a happy tune, and no one ever knows I’m afraid.

 

The result of this deception is very strange to tell.

For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well.

 

I whistle a happy tune, and ev’ry single time,

the happiness in the tune, convinces me that I’m not afraid.

The result of this deception is very strange to tell.

For when I fool the people I fear, I fool myself as well.

I whistle a happy tune, and ev’ry single time,

the happiness in the tune, convinces me that I’m not afraid.

Make believe you’re brave and the trick will take you far.

You may be as brave, as you make believe you are
