A little "get up and go" song for any time of day.


(talk about your day...)

Sing a happy song
Words can be all wrong
Sing a happy tune
All day long

Yeah yeah yeah yeah...

Build a house of clay
Make it for to pray
Neighbors bring us water
Carry it/comes in buckets along the way
Yes, they do!
You know, hey!

Yeah yeah yeah yeah...

Slow children...slow children...
We're all slow children
Again and again
We can't get anywhere
The amnesia types
We're always late
The ambrosia types
We try, we'll never be on time
The magenta, the indigo children
We're always late
Riding the short bus
We're in short little buses
To after school
We're slow children

Sing a happy song
Forget the day that's done
You did do something good
Didn't ya?
You can too! / I did too!

Yeah yeah yeah yeah...
