Lyrics

Antonym Land by Second Grade, Pleasant St., 1/10

The world is always round
We’d fall off if it were flat
Go from the center to the edge
Peek underneath and what’s that??

    CHORUS
    Antonym Land, isn’t it grand?  There’s no Synonym in Antonym Land
    Go under not over, don’t walk just stand   To get to Antonym Land


Oh we fall up and land in the sea,  Fly down and be in the sky
We play in the mud and come out clean, Onions make us laugh and not cry!

We set our alarms to go to sleep, We stop when we see the light’s green
Ice cubes are warm instead of cold, but we’re not sure we like ice cream!

    CHORUS

Volcanoes are as cold as ice, in winter we can get snowburn
Feathers are hard and heavy as lead, cheetahs are as slow as a worm!

Molasses and sloths can move really fast, Rockets crawl on the ground
We go to sleep with our head on a brick,  A roaring lion doesn’t make a sound.

    CHORUS

The Mysterious Case of the Missing Homework by Third Grade, Pleasant St., 1/10

    CHORUS:
    I did it! I wrote it! I promise it was there!
    But my homework’s missing, it’s not anywhere!

Almost every day homework gets assigned
I turn it in the next day so I won’t get behind
I can’t find my homework and I don’t have a clue
I’ll call up a detective and he’ll know what to do

Here I am to help you!  Sherlock Homework is my name!
Was it math or science, was your dog to blame?
Did you flush it down the toilet or leave it at someone’s house?
Was it covered up with ketchup or chewed up by a mouse?
    CHORUS
Does your mom have it?  Did it sprout legs and run away?
Is it in somebody’s stomach?  Should we order an X-ray?
Perhaps it’s in your book bag, or maybe still at school?
Did you cut it up with scissors and drop it in the pool?
    
Is it inside your agenda or maybe in mom’s purse?
Did the baby spit up on it? OOOH what could be worse?
 Maybe a magician made it disappear
Did he put it in your pocket or maybe in your ear?
    CHORUS

Maybe someone stole it or mailed it away
To Africa or Asia far from the USA
Could it be under a mattress or Abe Lincoln’s hat?
Perhaps it went through the wash, did you think of that?

“No” I said to all his questions, “now what can we do?”
Sherlock came to school with me to look around my room
He talked to the teacher who said, “You silly kid!”
“You gave it to me yesterday, no need to flip your lid!”

    LAST CHORUS
    I did it! I wrote it! I knew that it was done!
    My teacher had it all along, now I’l go have some fun!

Story

This is what the kids thought might happen after school in the gym, art room and music room!

Lyrics

The After Hours Rock by Fourth Grade, Pleasant St., 1/10

    CHORUS:
    It’s something of a marathon, when doors are locked and clocks are wrong
    It’s after hours at the school when all the kids are gone…
    We don’t know how it happens, it’s magic we assume
    There are strange things goin’ on in the art room

The smart boards surf the internet, scissors cut the rug
Human forms fold airplanes and do the jitter bug
Tables and chairs play hide and seek, glitter and clay make a disco ball
Glue has a squirt gun fight out in the hall

    CHORUS:
    It’s something of a marathon, when doors are locked and clocks are wrong
    It’s after hours at the school when all the kids are gone…
    We don’t know how it happens, when all is said and done
    There are strange things goin’ on in the gymnasium

The bean bags fly across the room and turn on the stereo
Bouncing balls hit the lights, hula hoops sing “Here we go!”
Noodles on the climbing wall, jump ropes swing on the trampoline
Soccer balls stack themselves on the balance beam

    


    CHORUS:
    It’s something of a marathon, when doors are locked and clocks are wrong
    It’s after hours at the school when all the kids are gone…
    We don’t know how it happens, it’s magic we assume
    There are strange things goin’ on in the music room
    

Woodblocks wake when the cymbals crash, the piano starts to rock and roll
Chalk writes music on the board, kazoos are out of control
Rhythm sticks beat on the bongo drums, mallets pop out of the xylophones
Maracas do the macarena till the cowbells all come home

    CHORUS

The broken clocks begin to tick and make a lot of noise
The microphone calls to everyone, “Here come the girls and boys!”
Triangles talk to the hockey stick, “Come on now we must be quick”
The paintbrush waves good bye to the rain stick.

    The next night Mr. Biggs is there sweeping the floor
    Everything is quiet and still, as he closes the door….

    Hum the verse tune, kazoos play too etc…….fade out

Story

There are four kindergarten classes - each class made a list of words that started with each letter and I used almost all of them for this story.  I think it would make a really cute book! This is the first half of the song.

Lyrics

The Alphabet Song by Kindergarten, Peasant St., 1/10

Alligator bats a ball to Bee
Cat is mixing chocolate candy
Dinosaur is dancing with the Dog
Eagle and Elephant eat an egg
Fox and Fish fly a flag
Gorilla and Giant holding hands
Having ice cream and jelly beans
Jumping and jamming with Kangaroo King
    Afternoon kindergarten thought of these
    Words to go with our ABC’s
    ABCDEFG HIJK Sing with me!

Story

And this is the second half!

Lyrics

Little Lizard and Ladybug
Met Mouse in a nest with an Oriental rug
Octopus ordered pizza from a Pirate
Queen’s on her quilt with a rainbow rocket
Snail and Turtle took their time
Under the umbrella with a violet vine
Wondering why more words don’t start with X
Yak said to Zebra, “That’s what you’d X-spect!”
    Morning kindergarten made a list
    Of words from L to Z not to be missed
    LMN OPQ RST UV too
    Last are XY and Z
    Once again, please sing with me!

Story

What happens at night in the library?  This song incorporates as many characters as the children could think of.

Lyrics

The Library by First Grade, Pleasant St., 1/10

    CHORUS:
    The library, the library when we go home and we can’t see
    What happens in the library, the library when we go home and we can’t see
Curious George was having a snack when he met up with the Cat in the Hat
Who made all the books come tumbling down, soon all their friends were clowning around

Cinderella was planning a ball, the engine that could chugged out in the hall
Little Red Riding Hood was handing out treats, Sleeping Beauty was asleep

    CHORUS    
Rainbow Fish was swimming in the sink, Harold’s purple crayon ran out of ink
The Hungry Caterpillar wanted more to eat, Sleeping Beauty was sound asleep

The Little Red Hen was baking some bread, the Three Little Pigs were building a shed
The Big Bad Wolf was admiring his teeth, Sleeping Beauty was snoring in her sleep

    CHORUS
Winnie the Pooh stuck his head in a jar, Dorothy and Toto didn’t get far
Amelia Bedelia was all mixed up, Sleeping Beauty would not wake up

Max made a mess and Ruby cleaned up, Goldilocks had porridge in a cup
Clifford stomped his feet and started to shake, Sleeping Beauty was wide awake!

She said, “Hey there, it’s almost day!  Time to put ourselves away!”
Peter and Tink worked their magic and then, all was normal again.
    CHORUS

Story

It is amazing (and somewhat frightening) what you can find in a fifth graders' desk, locker or backpack!! 

Lyrics

What’s This Doing Here? By Fifth Grade, Pleasant St., 1/10

    CHORUS:
    What’s this doing here? I should take this home
    Mom’s asked me for days wondering where it’s gone
    What’s this doing here? It could become compost!
    Maybe I should throw it out - this is really gross!!

I reached inside my messy desk to grab my science book
Instead I found a wad of gum - I don’t even want to look
I reached in further and pulled out a piece of moldy toast
The teacher’s wig and sunglasses. I turned white as a ghost
When Bailey stuck his head in there and let out a girlish scream (AAHHH)
He found the nest of my pet rat and said, “Josie, it’s time to clean.”
Some bitten off erasers, sweaty gym shoes and a shirt
The principal’s black panther, she will really go berserk!

    CHORUS

I looked into my backpack and began to squirm
A dusty dried out toothbrush and a box of worms
I heard my cell phone ringing and had to find it fast
My hand felt something furry and I pulled out a cat
Underneath all that I found some pizza that was green
A squished up candy bar and a pair of old blue jeans
Next was baby brother and some underwear
The principal’s black laptop - how did THAT get there??

    CHORUS

I opened up my locker searching for my coat
What I found surprised me - there was mom’s meatloaf!
Way down in the bottom I spied some soggy fries
And there was last week’s homework, right before my eyes.
I started going through this stuff and found a Christmas wreath
Stuck to it was a stinky sock and Grandma’s missing teeth
Half eaten yogurt and a purple cow
The principal’s blackberry, I’m in trouble now!!

    CHORUS
