The teachers sang for me Hey Paul that they had just written. It started like this:-
Hey Paul, don't feel too bad
Take your bad bones and make them better
Remember s_ _ t happens to us all
So you get over your nasty fall
The staff gave me a food basket and a lovely card
After Morning Tea I paid a visit to my class, Room 1 and sang some songs with them. One of my originals they requested was Best Friends Forever.
At school the children and I regularly sing together a mixture of some of my old time favourites and my own original songs.
About 8 years ago I wrote a song about friendship that was in my thinking about relationships between adults. Surprisingly I discovered when I tried it at school it became one of the most popular songs I have ever played with the kids.
When we sing this song together they usually put their arms around each other naturally and sway to the music. I put this down to several reasons. I'm sure having music in my classroom each morning creates a special bond between me and the children and each other. Because music is so important to me in my life as a form of lifting my spirit I am so glad I can share this with my children and see the warm affect it has in my room. Music creates a sense of belonging and this song Best Friends Forever particularly expresses the importance of other people in our lives.
Hope you like the lyrics and that it reflect the closeness you feel to those important to you!
Some of this information was shared on my previous blog
Best Friends Forever
Though we argue sometimes
And pay each other no mind
Might say hurtful words...unkind
To you I'll remain ever true
Best friends forever
You and me together
No matter what happens..whatever
I'll be here for you
Others will break our hearts
Some try to pull us apart
But now is merely the start
Of my love for you
If you're feeling upset
And the blues haven't left you yet
Turn to me and let
Me give my love to you
