Love is Christmas

These kids were simply too impressive. Such creative clarity, and the speed with which they came up with rhymes and metaphors. I can't believe how impressed I am with this group.

Several of these kids even wrote their own songs during this workshop. I got to see so many examples right after. I suspect you've not seen the last of these kids. Who knows. You might even be hearing them on Spotify soon.

LYRICS:

V1

Love is baseball

Love is gymnastics on the floor

Love is music

Love is lasting evermore

 

Love is a bowling alley

Love is dinner

Love is knowing my best friend

Is a winner

 

CHORUS

Everybody knows that love is Christmas

V2

Love brings people together

Love is a rose

Love lives in every weather

Love it knows

V3

Love is like a picnic

in the park

Love is like a puppy

Hear him bark

Creepy as a Bat

Wow! The 3rd and 4th graders in Benton Wisconsin nailed it to the wall. It was creepy and squirming and Halloween like music, and I liked it!!

Notice their use of phrasing, simile and metaphor. I'm completely blown away. Maybe even a bit terrified. I certainly won't look at spiders quite the same way again soon.

LYRICS:

My brother is a Haunted House

He’s a cemetery

He’s making vampire spiders

In his room, and they’re scary

 

He’s making them at midnight

So they’ll be out of the sun

I think they’re scary

But he says they’re fun

 

He’s creepy as a bat

Creepy as a mummy’s tomb

Can you imagine that

If he was related to you

Creepy as a bat

Creepy as a mummy’s tomb

He holds a chucky doll

As he flies around on his rotten Broom
