MUSIC / Lyrics - Song of the Week

Colour It

Every raindrop every stone
has a colour of it's own
Making everything better
Each little plant each butterfly
Is a wonder to our eyes
Makes everything better
It's time to go outside

Ch
Wash away all the grey
It's a colourful world
Greens and blues
Rainbows too
It's a colourful world
And you can colour it

Every kindness
Every smile
Warms the coldest shades awhile
Making everything brighter
And each day that we give back
Each day we step out from the pack
Makes everything lighter
It's time to paint the town

Ch

Any shade you feel
Any colour that appeals to you
To you

Every life and every soul
Has a pallet of it's own

Ch

Pink and green
All we see
It's a colourful world
All the hues
Rainbows too
It's a colourful world
And you can colour it too.

On A Rainy Day

Dogs and cats are falling from the sky
Bright umbrellas inside out they fly
Standing in the rainy watching all the
Raincoats, rain hats, rubber boots go by
Red ones, green ones, ones with butterflies
Standing in the rain

Ch
I may get little wet
Get a bit of water on me
I may get a little soaked
But I don't wanna be dry
On a rainy day

Dark clouds, white clouds, not a ray in sight
Rushing people can't see the delight
Of standing in the rain, feeling all the
Water running from my head to toe
Clothes are drenched but I don't really know
Falling with the rain

Ch

I never want it to stop
On a rainy day
I wanna feel every drop

Jump in puddles see the water splash
Don't move on when all the cars go past
Loving all the rain

Ch

I may get a little drenched
Get a bit of water on me
I may get a little wet
But I don't wanna be dry
On a rainy day
On a rainy day

Underneath My Bed

I think I heard a monster
Hiding underneath my bed
I think I heard him move and bump his head
I'm sure I heard a creature
Camping out under there
I wonder if he's mean or if he's scared

From down the hall
I hear him call

Chorus
Hey I wanna be your friend
Hey you wanna be my friend

I'm sure there is a monster
'Cause he's making such a lot of noise
With the dust bunnies, socks and toys
He's not like other monsters
'Cause he doesn't make me wanna scream
He likes to skip and lovers to eat ice cream

From down the hall
I hear him call

Chorus

From down the hall
The footsteps fall
I hear him call

You & I

Chorus
You and I
You and I are gonna have fun
You and I
You and I are gonna have fun
You and I
You and I are gonna have fun
You and I
You and I are gonna have some fun

The sun is shining the sky is blue
I can't wait to spend the day with you
Gonna ride a bike, eat ice cream
You'll be the king and I'll be the queen

And even if it pours with rain
We will find a different game
Stay inside, watch TV
As long it's always you and me

Chorus

And when it starts to get too late
We will hang out by my gate'The sun will set
The moon will rise
I don't wanna say goodnight
Take our time, hold our breath
Feels like the first time that we met
And as I watch you walk away
I know we'll do it all again

Chorus

Bah bah bah

You and I
You and I

Chorus

Time

Every morning the sun is shining cause every morning's with you
I don't need to check the weather
While you're here and we're together
Every day is a time to play and the game we're playing is new
I don't need to read the rulebook
All I need while I'm with you is

Chorus
Time oh more time
Time with you
Time please stop time right now

Every moment with you I'm floatin' and we keep rolling along
I don't want to check the clock
All I want is time to stop
So make it happen and we are laughing
And we'll keep singing a song
I don't want to close my eyes
Cause Time will pass we'll say goodbye

Chorus

A second a minute an hour a day a weekend or a year
I want to remember the time we're together so you can't disappear

Every morning the sun is shining cause every morning is new
Me and you let's make a mess
Cause you and me is always best

Chorus

There's more

More

Falling apart but my little pieces
Put back together more than increases
I'm not the same
There's been a change
I know there's a better way

Everyone lives in their own bubble
I wanna pop mine get in trouble
I wanna fly, I wanna soar
All I know is all I want is

Chorus
More uh oh
More uh oh
More uh oh oh

Floating around like good little robots
I wanna change course show what I got
Got no remote
Got no control
Got no wires that's how I roll

Everyone's eyes look down at their program
I wanna look up show who I am
I wane live
I won't ignore
I wanna say that we can all have

Chorus

Here we are with our little choices
I wanna show we can use our voices
I wanna shout
I wana roar
I wanna show the world that there is

Chorus

There's more

Not So Ordinary

Sometimes I feel ordinary just ordinary me
Grey and blue when all around is painted colourfully
But when I look at you and I see you look at me
I know that I am not so ordinary

Every day I feel I'm changing each moment something is new
So many thoughts so many dreams so much I want to do
Days will come and go and then the seasons move on
I take a look outside and I know where I belong

Ch
It's a nice surprise
Each time I see the sunrise

So when I'm feeling sad and my head is hanging down
I take a breath, lift it up and take a look around
All I need to do is find a place to just be
And I see we're all extraordinary

Ch x2

So when I'm feeling ordinary, just ordinary me
I remember everything and all that I can be
And every time I look at you and you look at me
I know that we are not so ordinary

I Like You

Chorus
I like you and I'm hoping that you like me
I like you and I'm hoping that you like me
I like you and I'm hoping that you like me too

Chorus

Hoping you will come and play with me
And someday we will be good friends
I know that I like the way you laugh and maybe
We can play again

Chorus

Chorus

I'll put on my shoes and hat and we'll go walking even in the rain
We laugh and joke and do a lot of talking
'Cause we've got a lot to say

Do Do Do Do Do

I like you
Do you like me
'Cause I like you
And hopefully

You like me and you're hoping that I like you
You like me and you're hoping that I like you
You like me and you're hoping that I like you too

'Cause
I like you and I'm hoping that you like me
I like you and I'm hoping that you like me
I like you and I'm hoping that you like me too

Chorus

Be Myself

I want to be all the colours of the rainbow please
I want to be every moon and every star I see
The rain the sun the ocean and the sky
I want to be everything that I can be and don't ask why

Ch
All the things I want to be
All the words that make me happy
All the moment I can feel
Help me be myself

I want to know
Want to find a lovely place to go
I want to know
Want find out every secret code
The lock, the bolt, the combination key
I want to know
Want to find out everything about me

Ch

La la la la la la la la la

Playtime

Find me feet
Running before I walk
Find my voice
Singing before I talk
Jump the track
Looking before I leap
Looking back
Living before I sleep
Now's the time to shine

Chorus
All the way
All the way to playtime
Playtime
All the way
All the way to playtime

Find my way
Going alone going away
Find my home
Finding a place I'm going to stay
Falling back
Finding a bed to rest
What I lack I'll do my best

Chorus

Dare to dream
Dare to fly
Take good care
While passing by
Do or don't
There is no try

Chorus

Working hard for playtime
Playtime
We can start our playtime
Playtime
Our playtime
Playtime
It's time to play

If I Try

I know I can do it if I try
Working hard while always asking why
Never giving up I know I'll do it
And if I get stuck I'll work right through it
Nothing's gonna stop me watch me fly

I may hit a bump upon this road
And it won't be easy so I'm told
No one can do anything until they
Try and try again and have the will to
Make mistakes with eyes upon the goal

Chorus
Every now and then
I get a little scared and I pretend that I can do it
I'll get to the end and I'll keep moving on

Other people may try to compete
The only race that I'm in is with me
Sometimes I'm behind and other times
I'm racing far ahead I see the finish line
I'll get there when it's meant to be

Chorus

I know I can do it if I try

Floating

Rainbows and butterflies
Daisys and sunny skies
I'm making the most of you
Cute dogs and pussy cats
Girls wearing pretty hats obscuring their points of view

Chorus
Floating on by
High in the sky
Floating upon the wind
A mid-summer sigh

Late nights and Saturdays
Times when you come and play
I will remember you
Mountains and riverside
Swings and enormous slides
So many things to do

Chorus

Lalalalala

Falling asleep at dawn
Still feeling nice and warm
Lying here with my friends
Birds sing and bunnies play
I'll never run away
Hoping this never ends

Rainbows and butterflies
I'll always memorize
Everything from this day
Cure dogs and pussy cats
Me in a funny hat that I'll never put away

Chorus

Read Me A Story

Time for a story time for a book
Time to relax and take a look
Have an adventure while the pages turn

Time for a journey to lands far away
Bear hunts and wild things are on their way
Have an adventure while the pages turn

Chorus
Read me a story
My favourite story time
Read me a story
My favourite story time

Where shall we wander
Where shall we go
Cats in hats or through the snow
All have an adventure while the pages turn

Wind in the Willows or Peter pan
Winnie the Pooh, Green Eggs and Ham
All have an adventure while the pages turn

Chorus

A little bit scary
A little bit sad
A lot of happy and sometimes mad
Part of the adventure while the pages turn
One more adventure while the pages turn
No more adventures now the page has turned

Sleepy Time

Everything is done
All been tucked away
The evening and the sun
Everything today
Quiet time for you
Nothing m,ore to say
Nothing more to do

Chorus
Close you eyes
Close your eyes now
Sleepy time
Sleepy time now

The moon is coming out
Stars begin to shine
Snuggled up in bed
Everything is fine
Think about the day
let your eyelids fall
And drift away

Chorus

Sometime in the night
Dream a little dream
Flying through sky on a trampoline
To the stars and moon
Going anywhere while safely in your room

Chorus

Can't Wait For Christmas Day

Santa Clause is coming down the chimney tonight
That's right
With his coat of red and his beard of white
That's right
Get your milk and cookies and reindeer snack
And don't look back
They won't come near until you're out of sight
That's right

Chorus
So go to bed and close your eyes
Before you know it's morning time and that is the time to play
I know that you can't wait for Christmas day

Santa Clause is near can you hear the sleigh
He's on his way
It's really dark outside but it's ok
He's on his way
You wrote your letter signed your name and put it in the mail
It never fails
Tonight's the night that you can't stay up late

Chorus

Day is the time when your eyes are wide and
All of your dreams come true
And we all say
Thank you

Santa Clause soon you'll have a holiday
I wonder where you go when you get away
But for now there are children who need you here
And every year
Santa this is your time this is your day

Chorus

I know that you can't wait for
I know that you can't wait for
I know that you can't wait for Christmas day

Wintery Night In Town

All merry and bright
Shine on every light
Watch the angel on high look down
On this wintery night in town

Choirs of children sing
See the joy that they bring
Their eyes looking all around
On this wintery night in town

Underneath the tree they're gathering
All the people all carolling
Open up their hearts and voices and sing
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Mittens keep their hands from freezing
Hot chocolate is what they're needing
Everyone can see them breathing
In out in out
Sing Noel
Sing Noel

All merry and bright
Time to say goodnight
Children sleeping
They're safe and sound
On this wintery night in town
In town
In town
