There is a way that we can live and peace is the way
P – E – A – C – E, P – E – A – C – E, P – E – A – C – E
And peace is the way

PEACE is shaking someone’s hand and being a good friend
Clap E-A-C-E, Clap E-A-C-E, Clap E-A-C-E
And being a good friend

PEACE is dancing to the beat and having fun together
Clap, clap A-C-E, clap, clap A-C-E, clap, clap A-C-E
And having fun together

PEACE is sharing your nice smile and spreading lots of sunshine
Clap, clap, clap C-E, clap, clap, clap C-E, clap, clap, clap C-E
And spreading lots of sunshine

PEACE is choosing not to hurt and playing safe together
Clap, clap, clap, clap, E, Clap, clap, clap, clap, E, Clap, clap, clap, clap, E
And playing safe together

PEACE is helping with our hands and being kind to others
Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap
Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap clap
And being kind to others

There is a way that we can live and peace is the way
P – E – A – C – E, P – E – A – C – E, P – E – A – C – E
And peace is the way

Hints and Tips:

A Song of Peace For Kids, Jack Hartman, 22 June 2016

Hello, Bonjour, Buenos Dias!
Gday, Guten - Tag, Konichiwa
Ciao, Shalom, Do-Brey Dien
Hello to all the children of the world!

We live in different places from all around the world
We speak in many different ways1

Though some things may be different
We're children just the same
And we all like to sing and play

Hello, Bonjour, Buenos Dias!
Gday, Guten - Tag, Konichiwa
Ciao, Shalom, Do-Brey Dien
Hello to all the children of the world!

There are children in the deserts
And children in the towns
And children who live down by the sea

If we could meet each other
To run and sing and play
Then what good friends we all could be

Hello, Bonjour, Buenos Dias!
Gday, Guten - Tag, Konichiwa
Ciao, Shalom, Do-Brey Dien
Hello to all the children of the world!

Hello To All The Children of the World, Kids Online Channel, 01 February 2018

I spy with my little eye
Blue and grey and green.
Open, blinking,
Wide and winking,
The loveliest eyes I’ve ever seen.

I see colours, colours everywhere!
The colours of Australia, the beauty we all share.
I see colours, colours everywhere!
So let’s hold hands and show we care.

I spy with my little eye
Blonde and black and red.
Straight and long,
Curly and strong,
Different hair on different heads.

I see colours, colours everywhere!
The colours of Australia, the beauty we all share.
I see colours, colours everywhere!
So let’s hold hands and show we care.

I spy with my little eye
Peach and tan and brown.
Cheeks and noses,
Fingers and toes,
Beautiful skin is all around.

I see colours, colours everywhere!
The colours of Australia, the beauty we all share.
I see colours, colours everywhere!
So let’s hold hands and show we care.

We’re lucky to live in a colourful world,
With friendly boys and friendly girls,
We all look different but on the inside,
We have the same heart and we wear it with pride!

I see colours, colours everywhere!
The colours of Australia, the beauty we all share.
I see colours, colours everywhere!
So let’s hold hands and show we care.

So let’s hold hands and show we care.

So let’s hold hands and show we care.

Addams Family Graduation Song Lyrics, Cheyenne Wells, 06 May 2015

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

I wanna celebrate and graduate,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

Cause we gonna rock this school,
We will do it right, we will graduate,
Cause we're dynamite!

Cause I told you once, now I told you twice,
We will graduate, cause we're dynamite!

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

I wanna celebrate and graduate,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

Cause we gonna rock this school,
We will do it right, we will graduate,
Cause we're dynamite!

Cause I told you once, now I told you twice,
We will graduate, cause we're dynamite!

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

I wanna celebrate and graduate,
Saying ayo, come on let's go!

Cause we gonna rock this school,
We will do it right, we will graduate,
Cause we're dynamite!

Cause I told you once, now I told you twice,
We will graduate, cause we're dynamite!

Hints and Tips: 

  • With the instrumental in the middle, make up a simple dance for the children to do. 
  • Can be played and sung while children receive their "graduation certificates". 
  • Each child can have a go dancing one by one during instrumental, while others clap along. 
  • Make up simple actions.
  • There is another version of this song without the instrumental in between (available on YouTube).

Barely a year ago,
We're only this tall,
That's what people say
That's what people say

Kinder was a blast,
It went by so fast
I'll miss it that's for sure
I'll miss it that's for sure

My friends are cute as it can be
My teachers are crazy for me at (add your service)

In first grade, saying...
It's gonna be all right!
But I did grow up up up up up
I'm ready to move on on on on on

Ready for first grade, first grade, first grade...
First grade, first grade!

Now I love to write
Watch me I can read
It is so much fun!
It is so much fun!

My friends are cute as it can be
My teachers are crazy for me at (add your service)

In first grade, saying...

I'm ready for first grade, first grade, first grade...

Hints and Tips:
