7 Keys to Communication

                 "Balance in Life"

 

 

Calm and happy spirit,

Creative, open mind,

Healthy, active body,

Try and you will find,

Friends to work and play with,

Answers to your questions,

Chances to be active,

Problems have solutions!

Balance in life, find a balance in life,

Take care of yourself and find a balance in life.

Be kind,

Be smart,

Eat well, 

Shake that thing,

And don't forget to sing. 

Be kind,

Be smart,

Eat well, 

Shake that thing,

And don't forget to sing. 

Use words that are helpful,

Brighten up the mood,

Exercise your body,

Eat nutritious food,

Listen to your family,

Listen to your friends,

Try to make decisions that lead to healthy ends.

Balance in life, find a balance in life,

Take care of yourself and find a balance in life.

Be kind,

Be smart,

Eat well, 

Shake that thing,

And don't forget to sing. 

Be kind,

Be smart,

Eat well, 

Shake that thing,

And don't forget to sing. 

Be kind,

Be smart,

Eat well, 

Shake that thing,

And don't forget to sing.

                            "Cooperation"

 

Cooperation, working together for the common good.

Cooperation, working together like we know we should.

More heads for thinking, more hands to build.

Cooperation, working together for the common good.

 

Be a good leader,  a good follower too.

Let others on your team show what they can do.

Think before acting, listen well.

Use a calm voice when you have something to tell.

 

Cooperation, working together for the common good.

Cooperation, working together like we know we should.

More heads for thinking, more hands to build.

Cooperation, working together for the common good.

A table needs moving?  Time to put on a show?

The kitchen needs cleaning?  There's a garden to grow? 

Let's build a house. It's easy you'll see,

When you are working in company.

 

Cooperation, working together for the common good.

Cooperation, working together like we know we should.

More heads for thinking, more hands to build.

Cooperation, working together for the common good.

 

 

                              "Transportation"

Transportation, transportation,

keeps us moving around and around.

Transportation, transportation,

on the water, 

through the sky

on the ground.

 

Verse We can fly in an airplane

over the clouds to a faraway place.

We can float in a motorboat

up the river or across the ocean.

 

Transportation, transportation…

 

Verse We can ride an electric car (it makes a little sound)

on the back roads or on the busy freeway.

We can ride a high-speed train

down the track across a countryside scene.

 

Transportation, transportation…

 

We can take the bus to school

through the city streets; 

green light, yellow light, red light.

We can ride our bicycle,

to go to the park or go down to the store.

 

Transportation, transportation…

                      Branches of Government

 

Three branches of government,

Three branches of government,

 

The Executive,

The Legislative,

The Judicial,

 

Three branches of government,

Three branches of government.

Key Change

Three levels of government,

Three levels of government,

 

The Federal,

The State,

The Local,

 

Three levels of government,

Three levels of government.

 

Key Change

When we turn eighteen,

When we turn eighteen,

We can vote in elections,

And do Jury Duty,

 

When we turn eighteen,

When we turn eighteen,

When we turn...

 

Kid:           Stop, stop, wait.

 

The music stops.

Mr. Peter:  What’s up?

 

Kid:           Mr. Peter, what do you mean? 

                 I can’t vote?

 

Mr. Peter: How old are you?

Kid:          ____ (actual age)

 

Mr. Peter: Nope, too young.

 

Kid:          But, that’s not fair.

 

Mr. Peter: Well, it’s the law.  

                 If you don’t like the law,

                 then work to change it.

                 But you have to know the law

                 before you can change it.

 

Back to Original Key

 

Three branches of government,

Three branches of government,

 

The Executive,

The Legislative,

The Judicial,

Three branches of government,

Three branches of government.

Chorus:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

These are the keys

These are the keys

These are the keys to communication

Take these keys please

Use them with ease

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

These are the keys

 

1: Number one, get their attention

When eye contact is made

 

2: Number two, use a talking tone of voice

Let any attention fade

 

3: Number three, relax your face

And your body language too

To get along with others

Keep these keys with you

 

These are the keys

These are the keys

These are the keys to communication

Take these keys please

Use them with ease

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

These are the keys

 

4: Number four, use words that help

Not hurtful things to say

 

5: Number five, when you make a mistake

Be brave, redo and save the day

 

6: Number six, when others fail

Give ‘em another go

 

7: Number seven, assume the best

Worry less, who needs the stress

Breathe and calm the flow

So…

 

These are the keys

These are the keys

These are the keys to communication

Take these keys please

Use them with ease

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

These are the keys!
