Everyone has something to give, a seed we all have to sew
Respect that we’re not all the same, it's part of what makes us grow
Try to deliver your best, encourage the same from the rest
Who knows how far you’ll go

Chorus:

Be safe and be loved in the place that you learn
Be helpful not hurtful down each road you turn
If you lead by example and do as you say
Together we’ll light the way

If you think that someone needs a friend, reach out your hand to them
If you look for what sparkles within, you’ll soon find that hidden gem
Get back whatever you give, a simple rule by which you can live
It comes from within

Chorus

Bridge:

Be happy you are who you are (be glad you’re not alone)
Be kind to your world and go far (and it will be your home)
Share all the gifts that you have and you won’t walk alone

Chorus x 2 — Repeat last line 3 times


Sue was acting like, she was the best
She’d pick on other girls ‘cause they were different from the rest
Her teacher overheard and said, “Sue, that’s not nice
Let’s have a talk I’ll give you some advice”.

Let’s talk about your character Sue,
' bout what you say and what you do
It’s about those things that make you who you are,
Those little things that help you reach for the stars
About your character Sue
‘bout what you say and what you do
You may not think it’s anything
But it can really make your heart sing

Now Sam liked playing tricks
On smaller boys and that’s bad.
He never stopped to think if they were hurt or sad.
One day a bigger boy was mean to Sam and he cried
A lesson learned now let me tell you why.

It’s all about your character Sam
‘bout how you act and how you plan
It’s about those things that make you who you are,
Those little things that help you reach for the stars
About your character Sam
‘bout how you act and how you plan
You may not think it’s anything
But it can really make your heart sing

Now Ed thought it was cool, to lie, cheat and steal
Talk back to his parents, not worry how they feel
Soon Ed was all alone, no one would be his friend
But there is one thing I would recommend

Let's talk about your character Ed
‘bout what you did and what you said
It’s those little things that make you who you are,
Those little things that help you reach for the stars
About your character Ed
‘bout what you did and what you said
You may not think it’s anything
But it can really make your heart sing


I'm glad I'm not a soccer ball, soccer ball, soccer ball
I'm glad I'm not a soccer ball
I don't wanna get kicked around

I'm glad I'm not a banana peel, banana peel, banana peel
I'm glad I'm not a banana peel
Nobody's gonna slip on me

Bridge:
I'm happy being me, I'm sure everyone agrees
If you're not happy with who you are
Then you're not gonna go very far

I'm glad I'm not a running shoe, running shoe, running shoe
I'm glad I'm not a running shoe
'Cause everyone would say P.U.

Bridge

I'm glad that I am not alone, not alone, not alone
I'm glad that I am not alone
I'm glad you're here with me
And I'm happy being me (2x)


Take a little bit of pride
It has to come from inside
Respect everyone at your school
And try to follow the rules

If we all pull together like one big family
We'll help each other be the best that we can be
Have a good attitude, set a good example
If you wanna' be cool at your school
If you wanna' be cool at your school

Treat everyone like they're a friend
That's a message you can send
Show everyone that you care
And that it's easy to share

If we all pull together like one big family
We'll help each other be the best that we can be
Have a good attitude, set a good example
If you wanna' be cool at your school
If you wanna' be cool at your school

Solo to …Have a good attitude……..

I can shout really loud
I can fly an airplane, So can I
I can drive a freight train So can I
I can climb a mountain So can I
I can build a fountain So can I

Chorus:
There isn't anything you can do

If you can do it, I can do it too!

I can be a dancer So can I
   
I can sing very high So can I

I know how to curtsy So do I
I can do a pirouette So can I
I can shout really loud So can I
I can talk with a British accent So can I

(T:) I can burp five times in a row whenever I want to
(R:) Prove it!
(T:) OK, Here goes --------- Your turn
(R:) Why would I want to when I could win a gold medal for hockey at the Olympics
(T:) So could I, right girls!!!

Chorus:
If you can do it, I can do it If you can do it, I can do it
If you can do it, I can do it
I can do anything just as well as you!

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


I was looking through some boxes today
When I suddenly fell back in time
A familiar face, was peeking at me
From behind, an old fishing line
Though your edges are tattered and worn
You have been here since the day I was born

I remember how we used to dance
Or pretend we were walking in France
You never got tired of listening to me
Tell stories about what I wanted to be
And when I was sad you were there
To give me a bear hug to show that you care
You're always there for me, always take care of me
You're with me through thick and thin
You never ask me why, you never make me cry
You are my forever friend

Well we fought all the battles and won
Then one day, I thought your work was done
So I set you aside, and I went out alone
On a journey that carried me too far from home
I've weathered the wind and the rain
And I promise that I'll never leave you again

I'll always be there for you, Always take care of you
I'll be with you through thick and thin
I'll never ask you why, I'll never make you cry
I am your forever friend


Family Tree

Chorus:
I'm the top branch on my family tree
Look at all the people who have come before me
The tree is taller than I will ever be
I'm the top branch on my family tree
It's good to look back at your history
Look close and you'll probably see
You're related to me

The tree is tall and the roots grow deep
Back in time is where you must creep
To find out why you are the way you are
You have your grandma's nose,
And your grandpa's toes
Your daddy's hair and your mother's stare
You're a little bit of everyone who's lived
On your family tree

Chorus

When Grandma's Grandma and Grandpa met
A car hadn't even been invented yet
There were no computers there was no MTV
No one knows how big your tree will grow
It just needs love so let everybody know
That you're proud of the people who have lived
On your family tree

Chorus


Chorus
A smile, is a little seed we can give to everyone we see
Before you know, it starts to grow, then we'll all live together in Harmony

If you want to be happy for a lifetime
You've got to let the sunshine in your life
But don't you know, life's too short to be unhappy
Every dark cloud has a lining that wants to shine

Sometimes the choices that we make are not the right ones
That's when you pick yourself up and get back in the race
It doesn't matter if you win, it's just how you play
Treat everyone like a friend, and they'll treat you just the same

Chorus

You should go through every day with your eyes open
Try to learn from everyone that you meet
There is good and there is bad, it's up to you to choose
But whatever you give out, you will receive

Chorus

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


Nobody's Perfect

Chorus:
Nobody's perfect, but I'll always try
If you say you're perfect, you're telling a lie
If everyone was perfect, it wouldn't be great
We learn from mistakes we make

When I was young I saw an itty bitty bug
I thought it looked pretty so I gave it a hug
The bug didn't like it and buzzed angrily
I learned not to hug a bee

Chorus

Way back when, my training wheels were gone
Put my helmet on tight but I kept falling down
Mom and Dad helped, to keep me up right
That's how I learned how to ride a bike

Chorus

Two plus two, does not make five
If you don't have wings, it's pretty hard to fly
Never stop trying if at first you don't succeed
Mistakes help us learn what we need

Chorus: (repeat last line 3 times)


Calling Canada

We stand together at the top of the world
From distant shores we came to find a better life
We all are different, sometimes we disagree
But we're a family, and were free

We're the miners of Cape Breton,
We're the loggers of B.C.
We're the farmers of the prairies
And we wave the fleurs-de-lys
We're the sailors on the Great Lakes
Students reaching for the sky
We're the product of a dream,
And I hope we'll always be

Chorus:
Calling Canada, Home to all our dreams
Canada, Where we all stand proud and free
Canada, Land of hope from sea to sea
We're Calling Canada the greatest place to be

Nobody said we could have freedom without cost
We shed a tear for all the brave ones we have lost
We are the monument for those who gave there all
We are Canada - je me souviens

This is a time to count our blessings
Time to fill our sails with wind
A great time to look around us,
A time to look within
To the people of the world
We are a beacon in the night
So let's show them we're united
And we always will be proud of

Chorus

Bridge:
It's time to celebrate, no time to hesitate
Who knows how great we'll be, in the twenty-first century
We're calling everyone, there's work here to be done
In a hundred years they'll see, someone will still be
Calling Canada ……


Ils ont debarques le coeur plein d’espoir
Arrives ici pour trouver une meilleure vie
Notre diversite nous cause des problemes
Quelque fois en desaccord comme dans une famille

Nous somme les mineurs d’la Nouvelle Ecosse
Les bucherons de l’ouest
Fermiers, marchands des prairies, lesmarins de l’est
Les fleur-de lys qui flottent au vent, gratte-ciels et solitude
De l’Atlantique au Pacifique, J’espere qu’il vivra…

Refrain :
Mon Canada, promesse de liberte
Canada, plein d’espoir et de fierte
Canada, le bonheur et l’amitie
Je suis content d’y etre ne

A tout oiseau son nid est beau, ici je me sens chez moi
Neige profonde, chaleur d’ete, mon pays; c’est a moi
Quel est le priz, pour la paix et la liberte
Soldats Canadiens, je me souviens

Parm bien d’autres nous sommes avantages
Conforts, plaisirs, et sports d’hiver, elements de notre foyer
Tout est en train de changer, c’est la recreation
Pensez a notre patrimoine, il s’agit de notre pays

Refrain : Mon Canada…

J’ai foi en cette nation, il s’agit de Canada
Ce siecle preque fini, mais mons pays vivra
Prenez courage, communiquez, il faut tout repenser
J’espere qu’il vivra merveilleux Canada….

Twisting to the Rhythm

Raise your hands, Wave them high in the air
Put them down on your hips,
And wiggle like a bear
Now stomp your feet, March all around
Shake your head, Without making a sound

Chorus:
Shake your body, Don't hold back
Let's all spin around, Twisting to the rhythm
Up and down, can you touch the ground

*Let's all spin around, Twisting to the rhythm
(Repeat chorus to * 2nd time sing
Let's all spin around & around & around)

Hold your arms out wide, Spin them around
Now bend your knees, Move up and down
Clap your hands, Stomp your feet
Can you do them both together,
While keeping the beat

Chorus

(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
