Our National Anthem

 

God save our gracious Queen,

Long live our noble Queen,

God save the Queen.

Send her victorious

Happy and glorious,

Long to reign over us,

God save the Queen.

 

 

Extraordinary Me! Extraordinary You!

 

We’re taking time to stop and celebrate,

There’s such a lot that we can do today

To get us living free,

To get us feeling good!

It doesn’t have to be a special week

To celebrate the fact we’re so unique,

Extraordinary Me! Extraordinary You!

 

Chorus:

So don’t go wishing you’re someone else

You can like who you are

 And be kind to yourself.

We’ll need each other, we’ll need some help

If we’re ever going to see

The good in you and me.

 

We’re taking pride in being who we are,

We’re taking care of everything that’s ours,

To keep us living free,

To keep us feeling good!

We’ve got a message we can sing about,

And what a difference when we shout it out,

 Extraordinary Me! Extraordinary You!

 

 

Last Chorus:

So don’t go wishing you’re someone else

You can like who you are

 And be kind to yourself.

We’ll need each other, we’ll need some help

If we’re ever going to see…

 

So don’t go wishing you’re someone else

You can like who you are

 And be kind to yourself.

We’ll need each other, we’ll need some help

If we’re ever going to see

The good in you and me!

 

 

 

In Unity

 

In unity, in unity

 

We are one with each other

We are one with each other

Singing together in harmony

Working together you and me

In unity, in unity

 

 

 

Magic Penny

 

 

Love is something if you give it away,

Give it away, give it away.

Love is something if you give it away,

You end up having more.

 

It's just like a magic penny,

Hold it tight and you won't have any.

Lend it, spend it, and you'll have so many

They'll roll all over the floor. For…

 

Ahugis something if you give it away,

Give it away, give it away.

A hug is something if you give it away,

You end up having more.

 

It's just like a magic penny,

Hold it tight and you won't have any.

Lend it, spend it, and you'll have so many

They'll roll all over the floor. For…

 

Love is something if you give it away,

Give it away, give it away.

Love is something if you give it away,

You end up having more.

Life is a wonderful thing

 

I woke up this morning, got out of my bed,

Looked in the mirror and I got myself dressed,

With a stretch and a yawn and a scratch of my head,

‘Life is a wonderful thing’, I said,

‘Life is a wonderful thing.’

 

My heart is beating morning ’til evening,

I’ve got the breath of life inside.

My heart is dreaming, I’ve got the feeling.

It’s so lovely when you know you’re alive!

 

I went out this morning, and what did I see?

Buds and blossoms and the birds in the trees,

With a skip and a whistle, a thought came to me,

‘Life is a wonderful thing, indeed,

Life is a wonderful thing.’

 

My heart is beating morning ’til evening,

I’ve got the breath of life inside.

My heart is dreaming, I’ve got the feeling.

It’s so lovely when you know you’re alive!

 

I woke up this morning, and here’s what I thought,

‘What surprises will I find at my door?’

With a new day before me, and plenty in store,

Life is a wonderful thing, for sure,

Life is a wonderful thing.

Life is a wonderful thing, uh-huh,

Life is a wonderful thing!

 

 

Bring me sunshine

CHILDREN:

Bring me sunshine, in your smile,

Bring me laughter, all the while,

In this world where we live, there should be more happiness,

So much joy you can give, to each brand new bright tomorrow,

 

Make me happy, through the years,

Never bring me, any tears,

Let your arms be as warm as the sun from up above,

Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love.   

 

 

STAFF CHOIR /AUDIENCE:

Bring me Sunshine, in your eyes,

Bring me rainbows, from the skies,

Life's too short to be spent having anything but fun,

We can be so content, if we gather little sunbeams,

Be light-hearted, all day long,

Keep me singing, happy songs,

 

ALL:

Let your arms be as warm as the sun from up above,

Bring me fun, bring me sunshine, bring me love.

 

 

 

Try & Try Again

 

1. When you’ve done the best you know how to do,

When it didn’t go how you’d want it to,

Don’t let your discouragement

Keep you back from trying once again.

 

  1. No-one likes to know how it feels to fail,

But it goes to show you a better way

Failing’s a necessity

For becoming all that you can be,

Use it as a stepping stone,

See it as a way for you to grow.

CHORUS            Anything is possible

Even though it’s difficult

It’s a case of try and try again!

Don’t give up and don’t give in,

This can be a new beginning,

Tell yourself you’ve still got what it takes!

 

  1. Failing isn’t failure unless you quit,

    Have another go, make the most of it,

Don’t let your discouragement

Keep you back from trying once again.

 

  1. Many of the world’s most successful ‘men’

Failed many times, but they tried again,

Failing’s a necessity

For becoming all that you can be,

Use it as a stepping stone,

See it as a way for you to grow.

 

CHORUS            Anything is possible

Even though it’s difficult

It’s a case of try and try again!

Don’t give up and don’t give in,

This can be a new beginning,

Tell yourself you’ve still got what it takes!

5.Repeat verse 1

  1. Repeat verse 2

 

Shalom

 

Shalom, my friend

Shalom, my friend,

Shalom, shalom.

Until we meet again, my friend,

Shalom, shalom.

 

 

 

So happy!

 

1. It’s so good to be alive,

I waggle my hips and start to jive.

Here’s a beat you can’t ignore,

I clap my hands and stamp on the floor.

 

CHORUS

So happy,

So happy,

So happy,

I gotta tell all my friends.

 

  1. If you want to feel like me,

Follow this philosophy:

Do as I do, don’t ask why,

Just stretch my arms right up to the sky.

 

CHORUS…..

 

  1. In some ancient song, it said

If you’re happy nod your head

Shout WE ARE and stamp your feet,

But I just want to bop to the beat.

 

 

CHORUS…..

  1. This is what we all agreed:

Happiness is what you need.

Let’s all holler, sing and shout,

So come on now and spread it about.
