1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8    1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

Think of these numbers, all in a row
Count to yourself while you move to and fro
Soon you will find as you move through your day
You're doing the healthy hustle at work rest or play

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8    1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

So many movements that you can do
Walking and stretching, to just name a few
Side steps and back steps and trunk twists are free
In no time at all you'll feel better you'll see

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8    1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8

Can you do the crab walk?
Can you do the wheelbarrow?
You can trot like a horse!
You can do the swim!

You won't believe how happy you'll be
Just go outside, turn off that TV
Get off your butt now it's time to say
I'm gonna do the healthy hustle each day

(I'm gonna do, the healthy hustle each day) (x 4)

1st verse

(I'm gonna do the healthy hustle each day) (x 4)


Well I'm a dog, and what do I do?
I just want to be a good friend to you
I have to be ready, if you should call
To bark at a stranger, to chase a ball

It's a dog's life, It's a dogs life
It's a dog's life, and that's the life for me

Well I'm a dog, and mostly it's fun
I get to be lazy, lie around in the sun
I never complain if my foods on time
I'll lick your face 'til you're covered in slime

It's a dog's life, It's a dogs life
It's a dog's life, and that's the life for me

Think I'll scratch a little (scratch, scratch)
          Shake a little (shake, shake)
          Sniff a little (sniff, sniff)
          Yawn a little (? ?)
          Bark a little (woof, woof)
          Chase a little (zoom, zoom)
It's a dog's life for me!

Well I'm a dog, I get to chase cats
As long as there's cats I will never get fat
When I get happy, I wag my tail
If the toilet lids closed, I'll drink from a pail

It's a dog's life, It's a dogs life
It's a dog's life, and that's the life for me
It's a dog's life, and that's the life for me
It's a dog's life, and that's the life for me

It's time to read
 
(It's time to read)
Another great story
 
(Another great story)
If you help me to read
 
(If you help me to read)
You'll see how great I can be (You'll see how great I can be)

There's another great adventure, in between the covers
When I finish this book, I'm gonna' read another
Be S-M-A-R-T, Come and read with me

You can take a great vacation, with your imagination
Everything you need is in your library
Be S-M-A-R-T Come and read with me

You can go way back in history, solve another mystery
Turn another page and find a whole new world
Be S-M-A-R-T Come and read with me

You may be a beginner, but you will be a winner
Every book you read will help you to succeed
Be S-M-A-R-T Come and read with me


Inspired by the S.M.A.R.T. reading program at
Grandview Public School in Bethany, Ontario, Canada

When I grow up, I want to be a cowboy
Everyday I'll ride my horse across the plain
I'll ride through snow and rain
I never will complain
When I grow up I want to be a cowboy

When I grow up I want to be a sailor
I'll sail the seven seas with my crew
Our sails will catch the wind
Across the oceans we will skim
When I grow up, I want to be a sailor

When I grow up I want to be a pilot
I'll fly between the clouds and chase the sun
I'll soar above the trees
Acting like the birds and the bees
When I grow up I want to be a pilot

When I grow up I just might be a Doctor
I'll tend to all the people who are ill
I'll work each and every day
So every boy and girl can play
When I grow up, I just might be a Doctor

When I grow up I want to be a good friend
I'll be there if you ever need a hand
Pick you up if you should fall
I'll come running if you should call
When I grow up I want to be a good friend

He was sitting in the bathtub, playing with his bathtub toys
When his mother suddenly shouted, "I heard you make that noise!"
At first he said, "It wasn't me, the bathtub made a squeak,
Or maybe the dog, or the cat, or a car back firing in the street."

But somehow mother knew that little Billy was the source
He sounded like a race car zooming 'round the racing course
When mother entered the bathroom to confront him with his lie
He smiled a silly grin as the evidence started to rise

The boy was makin' Tubbles
Tub bubbles startin' to rise
The bay was makin' Tubbles
And mother was not surprised

Mom and Dad were having a party, it was a very special date
Mother said to little Billy, "Go run a bath, it's getting late
So Billy gathered up his toys and went off happily
While the guests all stood around enjoying a cup of English tea

When suddenly a guest looked up and said, "Did you hear that?
I think a storm is coming, that sounded like a thunder clap!"
"Sounded more like boiling lava coming deep from underground!"
Mother's face turned several shades of red,
'cause she knew who'd made that sound

The boy was makin' Tubbles
Tub bubbles startin' to rise
The bay was makin' Tubbles
And mother was not surprised

Once upon a time and so far away
The Earth Maker watched all the children play
They ran through the flowers, they ran through the leaves
They played with the wind as it tickled the trees

When the wind asked the leaves to dance
The children joined in at the very first chance
Earth Maker saw all the smiles appear
So he thought of a way to make it last all year.

He took some flowers that were colored so bright
Some leaves and some dirt that was black as night
A gust of wind and a beam from the sun
Shook them all in a bag then his work was done

When he opened the bag, with great delight
The children were amazed at the beautiful sight
They are butterflies and their dance will begin
To the songbirds tune and the will of the wind

So they Dance (dance) little butterflies,
Little butterflies dance (x 4)

So the butterflies dance going up and down
In every way, not making a sound
Earth Maker smiles as the play, with his butterflies….

Chorus

Once upon a time and so far away
The Earth Maker watched all the children play


Inspired by the Papago Native American legend of "How the Butterflies Came to Be" from the book "Keepers of the Animals: Native American Stories" by Michael J. Caduto and Joseph Bruchac.

(Chant) x 2

We're gonna sing this silly song
Hope it doesn't take too long
We'll sing it to this rockin' beat
It's gonna be hard to stay in your seat
Feel your body start to move
Don't hold back just find your groove
Raise your hands above your head and shake

(Chant) x 4
Raise your hands above your head and shake

Shake your body round and round
Shake so high you won't come down
Shake your right leg in the air
Shake your left like you just don't care
Shake yourself around in a circle
Just make sure that you don't turn purple
Raise your hands above your head and shake

(Chant) x 4

Repeat 1st verse
