You Can Water Me

 

There’s a song that I like to sing

There’s a song that I like to hum

Like a bumblebee in spring

It fills my heart with love

 

As long as the grass is green

And the sun shines above

I could sit here on this hill

And hum

 

Chorus:

You could water me when the skies are grey

You can water me each and every day

First you plant a seed and then you wait

You can water me

Everyday

 

As I watch the flowers grow

They fill me with strength

Quiet and in peace it makes me feel safe

 

Like a rainbow above

Or at home eating pancakes

My teacher gives me things

I need to be great

 

Chorus:

You could water me when the skies are grey

You can water me each and every day

First you plant a seed and then you wait

You can water me

 

You can water me, you can water me

You can water me, you can water me

You can water me, you can water me

You can water me

 

So good morning to the earth

Cause I’m a sunflower in love

With my family and friends

We all hum

 

Nah nah nah nah nah      

Nah nah nah nah nah

Nah nah nah nah nah

Nah nah nah nah nah

 

 

Edgemont Montessori: Montclair NJ

Part of Everything

 

The music’s playing the trees are swaying the sun sets in the sky

There’s a dinosaur roaming underneath the ocean as the fish swim on by

Way up on a grassy cliff as the clock tic’s the time

 

I’m a bird on vacation I’m an elephant waiting for a breeze to cool me down

There are seagulls above I’m filled with love so much I want to sing out loud

I’m solid like a mountain the ocean calms me down

 

Chorus:

Part of everything

Part of everything

A piece of everything

Peace is everything

 

 

I’m a Radish with feet I am fruit that’s sweet I’m a walrus out on the ice

I can feel the breeze I am at peace I’m at ease as burritos fall out of the sky

 

There’s a garden growing all around Just have to open your eyes

 

 

I’m a bat in a cave still and brave hanging upside down

I’m eating cupcakes I’m a raven I’m a snake going round and around and around.

 

 

I’m sitting with my family as the leaves fall on the ground

 

“Chorus”

 

I’m a gummy bear dancing I’m a horse that is prancing on a farm or in a field

High above the Savannah Zebra’s are running Zebra’s are dancing

 

 

Wildcats are dancing

Bears are dancing

Unicorns are dancing

Penguins are dancing

Narwhals are dancing

People are dancing

Owl’s are dancing  

Wait…

Who?  

OWLS  

Oh…

Chickens are dancing

Donuts are dancing

Cows are dancing

Peas are dancing     

We are dancing

 

“Chorus”

Bradford Elementary

In My Garden

I’m a cloud

I’m the sun

I’m the rain falling on everyone

I’m a rose

I’m a violet

I’m a pitcher plant

I’m a dandelion

I’m just sitting here in my garden

 

I’m a radish

I’m a pea

I’m a carrot and I’m a raspberry

Hot chocolate on a cold day

I am warm and I feel safe

My garden is where I learn and play

 

 

Chorus:

 

In my garden

In my garden

In my garden everyday

In my garden

In my garden

In my garden where I feel safe

 

I’m a zombie coming up from the ground

I’m a waterfall pouring down

I’m a forest full of singing birds

I’m just filling this song with all my words

Cause everyone just wants to be heard

 

Chorus

 

I suggest you take a step back

Cause sometimes I am a Venus fly trap

Or a horse or a mouse

Or I’m reading a book at grandmas house

Cause peace is all around

 

Chorus

 

I'm a dove flying above

I'm a ladybug giving all my love

I’m a dragon flying high in the sky

I was a caterpillar now I’m a butterfly

Cause peace starts from the inside

 

 

Springhurst Elementary School

Planting seeds

 

If you can plant a seed

Then you can watch it grow

Always take your time

We all must start out slow

If you can plant a seed

You can grow anything

Just water it each day and see what it will bring

 

Chorus:

Oh oh oh, and sometimes when you feel alone

You can count on me

So let your garden grow

With every single deed

 

Taking our time to breathe

Gives us a chance to find

The words we want to use

To express what we feel inside

Like the animals outside

Beautiful and free

Peace is not just an idea

But it’s something that we all can see

 

Chorus:

Oh oh oh, and sometimes when you feel alone

You can count on me

So let your garden grow

With every single deed

Oh oh oh, and sometimes when you feel alone

Sit underneath this tree

Breath in its oxygen cause from your breath it feeds

 

So when you plant your seeds

Tend to them everyday

In everything you do and everything you say

And when they begin to sprout

Breaking through the ground

Make sure your roots go deep

As you make your way on out

 

Chorus:

Oh oh oh, and sometimes when you feel alone

You can count on me

So let your garden grow

With every single deed

 

And when it begins to bloom it will reach out to the sun

Cause when you plant your seeds with peace

It spreads out to everyone
