These are the values

(Chorus)

These are the values of life

That we need to know in our hearts

So our hearts can beat together

These are the values of life

That we need to live and to breathe

So we all can live a brighter day

 

(Verse1)

Love and understanding

Peace and unity

Tolerance and patience

And respect for you and me

 

Truth and independence

Hope and honesty

All cooperating

Living life with quality

 

Chorus….

 

(Verse 2)

Thoughtfulness and courage

Responsibility

Happiness and freedom

And a growing self esteem

 

Friendship for each other

Showing that we care

These are the values

That we daily need to share

 

Chorus …..

 

 

Lean on Me

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain, we all have sorrow.

But if we are wise we know that there’s always tomorrow.

 

Lean on me when you’re not strong

I’ll be your friend. I’ll help you carry on,

For it won’t be long till I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.

 

Please swallow your pride if I have things you need to borrow,

for no-one can fill those of your needs that you won’t let show.

 

Lean on me when you’re not strong

And I’ll be your friend. I’ll help you carry on,

For it won’t be long till I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.

 

You just call on me, brother when you need a hand.

We all need somebody to lean on.

I just might have a problem that you’d understand.

We all need somebody to lean on.

 

Lean on me when you’re not strong

And I’ll be your friend. I’ll help you carry on,

For it won’t be long till I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.

 

If there’s a load that you can't bear and you can’t carry

I’m right up the road I’ll share your load, if you just call me.

 

Lean on me when you’re not strong

And I’ll be your friend. I’ll help you carry on,

For it won’t be long till I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.

Lean on me when you’re not strong

And I’ll be your friend. I’ll help you carry on,

For it won’t be long till I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.

 

Just call

Just call me

Just call

Just call me

 

 

Starlight

 

Starlight, star bright

Shimmering across the dark sky.

Glowing showing

Just how far your magic can fly.

 

Underneath the shining moon we sing

[Lift our voice to the heavens]

Underneath the shining sun

[And together we’ll stand]

Hand in hand we hear our voices sing as one

 

Starlight, star bright

Shimmering across the dark sky.

Glowing showing

Just how far your magic can fly.

 

Reaching out across the ocean blue

[Lift our voice to the heavens]

Hear our voices clear and strong

[And together we’ll stand]

Joining one another in our world of song.

 

Starlight, star bright

Shimmering across the dark sky.

Glowing showing

Just how far your magic can fly.

 

 

Purify

Purify

Purify the water

Purify or I’ll die x2

 

Make it clean with a filter

Made of charcoal

and

 

Purify

Purify the water

Purify or I’ll die

 

Take out the duck feathers

Take out the leaves

Take out the dirty grime and the weeds x2

 

and

Purify

Purify the water

Purify or I’ll die

 

I can drink it, I can stomach it x2

 

and

Purify

Purify the water

Purify or I'll die.

 

 

if I Didn’t Have Water

 

If I didn’t have water I couldn’t drink,

I would dehydrate and die

If I didn’t have water I couldn’t bathe,

I would smell so bad I’d cry

 

If I didn’t have water I couldn’t cook,

I would miss my cup of tea

If I didn’t have water I couldn’t clean,

my room would be so dirty

 

I couldn’t swim, I couldn’t drown,

I couldn’t splash like a clown fish,

I couldn’t float

like a boat,

I couldn’t cry,

I don’t know why 

 

I leave the tap running when I brush my teeth

I don’t know why I bathe not shower

 

Why Keep Clean

 

Don't throw rubbish in the sea

Don't be so mean!

 

Never drink a half a cup of juice and throw the rest away

The rest away             The rest away

            The rest away             The rest away

                        The rest away             The rest away

                                    The rest away

True Colours

 

You with the sad eyes, 

Don't be discouraged, 

Oh, I realize

It's hard to take courage.

In a world full of people,

You can lose sight of it all,

And the darkness inside you

Can make you feel so small.

 

Chorus

But I see your true colours shining through.


I see your true colours, that's why I love you.


So don't be afraid to let them show.


Your true colours, true colours


Are beautiful like a rainbow.

 

Show me a smile then.

Don't be unhappy,

Can't remember when

I last saw you laughing.

If this world makes you crazy 

And you've taken all you can bear

You call me up, 

Because you know I'll be there.

 

Chorus

 

If this world makes you crazy

And you've taken all you can bear,

You call me up,

Because you know I'll be there.

 

And I'll see your true colours shining through.

I see your true colours, that's why I love you.

So don't be afraid to let them show.

Your true colours, true colours,

True colours are shining through.

See your true colours, and that's why I love you.

So don't be afraid to let them show.

Your true colours, true colours

Are beautiful like a rainbow.

 

 

 

Eye of the Tiger

 

Rising up, back on the street

Did my time, took my chances

Went the distance now I'm back on my feet

Just a man and his will to survive

 

So many times it happens too fast

You trade your passion for glory

Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past

You must fight just to keep them alive

 

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight


Risin' up to the challenge of our rivals


And as the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night


And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

 

Risin' up, straight to the top

Had the guts, got the glory

Went the distance now I'm not gonna stop

Just a man and his will to survive

 

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight


Risin' up to the challenge of our rivals


And as the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night


And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

 

The eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

 

 

Bring Me Sunshine

 

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 Singers)

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,


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


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

Power In Me

And I feel I can’t go on,

I know I can do something about it.

My heart will start to race,

My body find the motion,

And I will feel empowered from within.

 

Chorus

I’ve got the power in me, You’ve got the power in you.

I’ve got the power, p p power, got the power in me.

Nobody’s gonna hold me back,

Nobody’s gonna silence my words,

Nobody’s gonna close my mind,

I’ve got the power in me!

 

Verse 2

When someone’s needing help, And the world just walks on by,

I know I can do something about it.

I’ll stand up for their rights,

My voice will find the words,

And I will feel empowered from within.

 

Chorus

 

Verse 3

When my mind is closing down, And I’m lacking inspiration,

I know I can do something about it.

No one can stop me learning,

Create my dreams and future,

And I will feel empowered from within
