Lyrics

Bread and Cereal

Written By: Bruce Fite

Bread and cereal, fruits and vegetables
Cock-a-doodle-doodle-doodle, moo
These are things we need to eat
To be healthy through and through

When I grow up I want to be a farmer
So I can have a cow
I’m gonna work real hard. I’m gonna try my best…
I’m gonna eat my vegetables now (3x)

When I grow up I want to be a cowboy
Ridin’ on a horse
I’m gonna work real hard. I’m gonna try my best
I’m gonna drink my milk of course (3x)

When I grow up I want to be a teacher
To help make people smart
I’m gonna work real hard. I’m gonna try my best
To eat fruit for a healthy heart (3x)

When I grow up I want to be a mailman
Walking down the street
I’m gonna work real hard. I’m gonna try my best
I’m gonna eat my chicken and meat (3x)

Gotta Move

Written By: Bruce Fite

I gotta move, move, move
Gotta get into the groove
I gotta move, move, move
And you should too

I need to move, move, move from my head down to my shoes
I need to exercise from my elbows to my eyes
I need to get my heart pumpin’ with some runnin’ or some jumpin’
I need to give my arms a stretch, so let’s go have a catch

There are so many sports no one can play them all
So pick one you might like maybe jog or basketball
No matter how you choose to up your heart rate
The more and more it happens you’ll start felling really great

There’s jumping jacks or volleyball, soccer or tennis
When you make an effort to be active you increase your fitness
Sometimes it’s uncomfortable to try something new
But when you have a healthy heart you have a healthy you

Photosynthesis

Written By: Bruce Fite

I love to see those warm summer days
I love to soak in those bright sunny rays
It puts me in a really great mood
'Cause then I know that I'm producing food

Sometimes it’s difficult to see
How I overcome being hungry
Don’t bother looking North, East, West or South
Because my friend I don’t need a mouth

Photosynthesis is how I make food (4x)

I love to feel that warm summer rain
Without it I’d probably go insane
It showers my roots and on my leaves
All you gotta do is ask and you’ll receive

I guess you’ve probably heard and you’ve seen
It isn’t always easy being green
But everyday I stand up tall and still
My pretty green color is called chlorophyll

I Care

Written By: Bruce Fite

There was a little boy named Edward Rutherford Cobblestone
He spent most every day feeling all left out, feeling all alone
He thought to himself – Could there be someone with joy to spare
He wondered if he’d find a friend to love or a friend who cares
(And all he ever wanted to hear was…)

O never fear little Edward Rutherford Cobblestone
I’ll be your friend so that you won’t have to be alone
I’ve got plenty of joy to spare
I’m your friend and I love you. And I care.

He lived down the street from Englebert Huberton Jones the 12th
Another little boy who just got used to being by himself
He thought to himself –Does loneliness have an end
He wondered if he’d find someone to talk to, maybe a friend
(And all he ever wanted to hear was…)

O Never fear little Englebert Huberton Jones the 12th
I’ll be your friend so that you won’t have to be by yourself
I’ve got plenty of toys to share
I’m your friend and I love you and I care

Edward’s on the bus, there’s one more stop on his street
As Englebert got on the bus he wondered if he’d ever find a seat
He looked all around and he saw a little boy sitting by himself
Then he reached out his hand and said, Hi, I’m Englebert Jones the 12th

(They started talking about stuff lke monster trucks, big old scary dinosaurs, and they told jokes like How do you make a tissue dance? You put a little boogie in it. They became awesome friends… Then Englebert said… Then Edward said…)

'Til You Wake (Anna's Lullaby)

Written By: Bruce Fite

Sleep, sleep, sleep
Sleep, sleep, sleep
Sleep 'til you wake in the morning

Sleep, sleep, sleep
Sleep, sleep, sleep
Sleep 'til you wake in the morning

And as you sleep God is watching over you
As you count sheep count your blessings too

Dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream
Dream 'til you wake in the morning

Dream, dream, dream
Dream, dream, dream
Dream 'til you wake in the morning

And as you dream your angel is at your side
And softly sings a heavenly lullaby

Live What I Teach

Written By: Bruce Fite

“It’s a boy!” they exclaimed with joy and with glee
The nurse pulled me up and said, “look and see!”
I saw a little man who looked a little like me
And in my heart I prayed on bended knee…

Lord, give me the strength to live what I teach
To trust you when things are out of my reach
Make my life the lesson when I’m tempted to preach
Lord, give me the strength to live what I teach

May the grunts and the gurgles from a blanket of blue
Grow into words filled with wisdom and truth
May his little hands and feet, so fragile and small
Bring the glad, Good News: One life paid for all

In the secret place You knew him best
May he know you and how You give weary folks rest
If his heart ever tries to wander and stray
May he look to his Father to show him the way

Though the world will try to con him and lie to his face
May he return it with kindness, with love and grace
May he stand firm with courage and rise to his knees
As he grows older and wiser may his memory see…

How you gave me the strength to live what I teach
To trust you when things were out of my reach
Made my life the lesson when I was tempted to preach
How you gave me the strength to live
