Wake Up Everybody

Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes

 

Wake up everybody no more sleepin' in bed

No more backward thinkin' time for thinkin' ahead

The world has changed so very much

From what it used to be

There is so much hatred war and poverty

Oh yeah

 

Wake up all the teachers time to teach a new way

Maybe then they'll listen to whatcha have to say

Cause they're the ones who's coming up

And the world is in their hands

When you teach the children

Teach 'em the very best you can

Oh yeah

 

The world won't get no better

If we just let it be

The world won't get no better

We gotta change it yeah,

Just you and me.

Remember Me

 

 

Remember me

Though I have to say goodbye

Remember me

Don't let it make you cry

For even if I'm far away I hold you in my heart

I sing a secret song to you each night we are apart

 

Remember me

Though I have to travel far

Remember me

Each time you hear a sad guitar

Know that I'm with you the only way that I can be

Until you're in my arms again

Remember me

Song – “Transportation”    

 

Chorus                  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.

 

Chorus                  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.

 

Chorus              Transportation, transportation…

 

Verse               We can take the bus to school

                           through the city streets;

                           green light, yellow light, red light.

                           We can take our bicycle

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

 

Chorus                  Transportation, transportation…

 

 

 

 

 

Song – “It’s a Cycle”

 

The piano accompaniment starts the pulsing waltz. 

 

                           Oceans are bigger than seas.

                           Seas are different from lakes.

                           Lakes are different from rivers,

                           And rivers are bigger than streams.

                           Water falls down from the clouds.

                           Then the water evaporates.

 

Chorus              It’s a cycle.

It’s a cycle.

Water goes up and then water comes down.

It’s a cycle.

It’s a cycle,

A cycle we need to survive.

 

There are five oceans on earth:

The Atlantic, the Atlantic, the Pacific, the Pacific, the Indian, the Indian,

The Southern. the a-a-a-a-a-a-a-rcti-i-i-i-i-c

 

 

Water falls down from the clouds.

Then the water evaporates.

 

It’s a cycle…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Song – “The Rock Song”

 

Chorus                  The earth is made of rocks.

Most rocks are underground.

You can find rocks near wa-ter.

Water changes rocks.

Water breaks rocks.

Sand is made of very small rocks.

 

Verse                   Rocks look different.

They are different colors.

Some are shiny.

Some are dull.

Rocks feel different.

Rocks feel different.

Some are sharp.

Some are smooth.

 

Chorus              The earth is made of rocks…

 

Verse                   You can rub rocks,

Rocks together!

Hard rocks are strong.

Soft rocks fall apart.

People use rocks.

They cut them from the earth.

They are carried away.

People build with rocks.

The earth is made of rocks.

 

Chorus                  The earth is made of rocks.

                           Most rocks are underground.

                           You can find rocks near wa-ter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cooperation - Song

 

 

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.

The Worm Song

I went to the garden and I found a worm, and I put it in a jar.

I thought I’d take it outside for a walk, but it wouldn’t go that far.

I asked my mama can we take a drive, but it didn’t like the car.

 

So I’m gonna give it back, gonna give it back, gonna give it back to nature.

I’m gonna give it back, gonna give it back, gonna give it back to nature.

 

I felt like I might want to take a swim, but the worm didn’t like the pool.

Tried to keep it with me all day long, but the teacher said it wasn’t cool.

I found a ball to play catch with it, but my dad said that was cruel.  SPLAT!

 

So I’m gonna give it back, gonna give it back, gonna give it back to nature.

I’m gonna give it back, gonna give it back, gonna give it back to nature.

 

 

Worm Dance

 

 

Brought it on down to the post office, but it couldn’t fit in a letter.

Seemed my worm was awfully cold, so I wrapped it in my sweater.

I wanted to go to the desert with it, but they say worms like it wetter.

 

So I’m gonna give it back, gonna give it back, gonna give it back to nature.

I’m gonna give it back, gonna give it back, gonna give it back to nature.

Los Pollitos

 

Los pollitos dicen “pio,pio, pio,”

Cuando tienen hambre,

Cuando tienen frio.

 

La gallina busca el maiz y el trigo,

Les da la comida,

Y les presta abrigo.

 

Bajos sus dos alas

Acurrucaditos,

Duermen los pollitos,

Hasta el otro dia.
