Lyrics

Everything's Gone Green

Written By: Dez Staunton and Vanessa Staunton

The planet has a problem
We all know what it is
The ice is slowly melting
And the world is heating up
We can make a difference
No matter what they say
You know what I mean yeah!

We can make an impact
So much we can do
Reduce greenhouse emissions
So long overdue
We can make a brave new world
Whatever may have been
Everything’s Gone Green yeah!

Everything’s Gone Green
Everything’s Gone Green

We need a solution
And we must do our best
Let's go out and find a way
And put it to the test
The future's bright the future's ours
Whatever may have been
Everything’s gone green

Everything’s Gone Green
Everything’s Gone Green
Everything’s Gone Green
Everything’s Gone Green

Let's Do The Right Thing

Written By: Dez Staunton and Vanessa Staunton

Don’t bludge, don’t cheat, stand up on your own feet
Don’t fight, don’t tease, learn how to say please
Be seen to be kind, read books grow your mind
Protect all creatures and listen to your teachers
Come on kids you know how it is
You have to do the right thing

Turn on, tune in, let your friends join in
Keep fit, stay lean, keep the schoolyard clean
Stay calm, stay keen, stay on the right scene
Best do your homework or they’ll put you back to first grade
Come on kids, you know how it is
You have to do the right thing

Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Come on kids you know how it is
You have to do the right thing

Don’t slide, don’t steal, think how your friends feel
Eat well, be strong, make your lunch last long
Breathe in the fresh air don’t forget your bus fare
Bang on your bass drum and make sure you have fun
Come on kids you know how it is
You have to do the right thing

Go green, be seen to plant shrubs and trees
Save water weekly, turn off the TV
Switch off the bright light, relax in the sunlight
Go out on your bicycle and always recycle
Come on kids you know how it is
You have to do the right thing

Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right, do the bright, do the right thing

Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right thing
Let’s do the right, do the bright, do the right thing

Copy Me Copy You

Written By: Dez Staunton and Vanessa Staunton

Clap your hands to the beat
Come on copy me
Or maybe you could stamp your feet
Come on copy me
Place your hands upon your hips
Come on copy me
Shake your body do the twist
Come on copy me

And in the end you know it is no mystery
It’s so very easy come on everybody copy me

Now it’s time to spin around
Come on copy me
Jump up high off the ground
Come on copy me
Let’s all sway from side to side
Come on copy me
Fly an aeroplane and glide
Come on copy me

Come on everyone let’s burn some energy
It’s so very easy come on everybody copy me – copy you!

We can all do star jumps
Come on copy me
Or make an elephant’s trunk
Come on copy me
Stretch your arms now way up high
Come on copy me
Make a rocket ship and fly
Come on copy me

And in the end you know it is no mystery
It’s so very easy come on everybody copy me

Copy me copy you
Copy me copy you
Copy me copy you
Copy me copy you
Copy me

What's Eating Lucy Lou?

Written By: Dez Staunton and Vanessa Staunton

Forgive me for asking Lucy Lou
I know just what you’re going through
Homework is hard and the playground has been barred
And even your goldfish has the flu

Forgive me for prying Lucy Lou
I think I know what’s wrong with you
Your best friend’s away there’s nothing to play
And now you’re alone and feeling blue

Lucy Lou – oh Lucy what’s eating you?
La, La, Lucy – Lucy Lou

Forgive me for trying Lucy Lou
I think I know what’s best for you
Your playroom’s a mess there’s paint on your dress
And your bedroom looks like Australia Zoo

Lucy Lou – Oh Lucy what’s eating you?
La, La, Lucy, Lucy Lou
Lucy Lou, Oh Lucy what’s eating you?
La, La, Lucy – Lucy, Lucy Lou

Get Moving

Written By: Dez Staunton and Vanessa Staunton

Let’s go swimming today
We’ll have fun on the waves
Exercise is the best
It’s time we put it to the test

Get moving, let’s get moving
Let’s get moving, on and on
Let’s get moving, get moving
Let’s get moving to the song

Trampolining is fun
Ball games keep you on the run
Don’t leave your bike at home
You don’t need a mobile phone

To get moving, let’s get moving
Let’s get moving everyone
Let’s get moving, get moving
Let’s get moving, it’s such fun, it’s such fun

It’s such fun ….

Dance to your favourite song
Move your body all day long
Build up those muscles and bones
Drink some water when you get home

Get moving, let’s get moving
Let’s get moving, on and on
Let’s get moving, get moving
Let’s get moving to the song

Let’s get moving, get moving
Let’s get moving everyone
Let’s get moving, get moving
Let’s get moving, it’s such fun

It's Our World

Written By: Dez Staunton and Vanessa Staunton

Let’s work together we are one
And we’re all the same under the sun
Our lives they may not seem quite the same
But we’re the same let me explain

Their schools may be different from yours
And their lands may be quite different too
Their words may be different as well
But we’re the same can’t you tell?

It’s our world
We can live as one
Smile and have fun
Under the golden sun
It’s our world
We can live as one
Smile and have fun
Under the sun

Sometimes a voice needs to be heard
To fly through the air like a bird
We need to give others a chance
So they can laugh so they can dance
Their homes may be different from yours
And their skin might be quite different too
Our lives they may not be quite the same
But we’re the same; we’re all the same

It’s our world
We can live as one
Smile and have fun
Under the golden sun
It’s our world
We can live as one
Smile and have fun
Under the sun

Repeat Chorus
