NOTES
Sarah Goslee Reed and Lisa Hill Biales grew up playing and listening to very different kinds of music, and each of them discovered a desire to sing and express herself through the kind of personal song that comes from within. After meeting in 1991, the two formed Prairie Orchid. In the many years since then, they have entertained thousands with their musical tales of childhood, parenthood, love, and change. Whether entertaining children in a school auditorium …

GRAVITY

Gravity gravity
    You should take it seriously
    KEEPS YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND DON’T YOU AGREE?
    That’s how it is with gravity

Walkin’ down the street with my good friend Joe
Talkin’ and laughin’ everywhere we go
A shoelace came undone and we both fell down
Our legs got tangled and we hit the ground
    Gravity gravity
    You should take it seriously
    IT CAN MAKE YOU FALL AND SKIN YOUR KNEE
    That’s how it is with gravity

Is the Christmas tree standing straight and tall?
Or will the cat up in there make it fall?
He’s playing with the branch and a ball so bright
Crash! It’s in pieces with a strand of lights
    Gravity gravity
    You should take it seriously
    MAKES THE ORNAMENTS FALL OFF YOUR TREE
    That’s how it is with gravity

We’re in outer space goin’ on a trip
Riding in our favorite rocket ship
With our books and games, food and water too
Floating around us going to the moon
    (with) NO gravity NO gravity
    We take it so seriously
    WEIGHTLESSNESS MAKES US FEEL FREE
    That’s how it is with NO gravity

It’s Messy at the Melting Point
    by The Fourth Grade at Dan Emmett Elementary, January 2009

CHORUS:
    It’s messy at the melting point, yeah it’s messy at the melting point
    32 Fahrenheit or Zero Centigrade
    Below you’re gonna get some snow, above it you get rain
    But on the dot it will not disappoint
    Oh it’s messy at the melting point
School is cancelled once again, hangin out with my friends
Goin up with my sled, wiping out I hit my head
Sliding down with frozen toes, now I have a runny nose
I wish I would have stayed in bed, I think I need some jam and bread!
    CHORUS
One day I built a big snowman, then sun began to spoil my plan
I watched as he began to shrink, it happened faster than you’d think
Icicles began to drip, I caught one on my fingertip
And there were puddles in  a blink, so much for the skating rink
    CHORUS
A hot day at the swimming pool, I was hoping to stay cool
Chilly winds began to blow, I thought it was about to snow
At first it rained, then there was hail, that’s when I began to wail
Dark clouds began to show, I knew that it was time to go

    It’s messy at the freezing point, yeah it’s messy at the freezing point
    32 Fahrenheit or Zero Centigrade
    Below you’re gonna get some snow, above it you get rain
    But on the dot it will not disappoint
    Oh it’s messy at the freezing point
    
    It’s messy at the melting point, yeah it’s messy at the melting point
    32 Fahrenheit or Zero Centigrade
    Below you’re gonna get some snow, above it you get rain
    But on the dot it will not disappoint
    Oh it’s messy at the melting point

The Cycle of Life by The Third Grade at Dan Emmett Elementary, January 2009

CHORUS:
    What do you look like when you’re born?
    Can you walk or talk or sing?
    We all change as we go through life
    There’s a cycle for everything!

An egg with a dot in the middle
Then a tadpole with a tail
The tail goes in, the legs come out
Now a frog is jumping all about!
    CHORUS

Plant a seed in soil, give it water
With air and sun it sprouts
Down go the roots and the stem pops up
Next thing you know the tree’s all grown up!
    CHORUS

A baby  of a special kind of mammal
Hatches from an oval egg
Not quite a beaver, not glamorous
Not quite a duck, it’s a platypus!

The Three New R’s by the Fifth Grade at Dan Emmett Elementary, January 2009

There used to be something in school, the 3 R’s were the rule
Reading, writing and ‘rithmetic, if you learned them, you were pretty cool
Times have changed we can’t refuse to reduce recycle and reuse
Saving the earth we’re all about, the three new R’s are what we shout:
    Reduce, recycle, reuse!   Reduce, recycle, reuse!
    Turn down your thermostat, walk more, drive less and use less gas
    Reduce, recycle, reuse!

So many things we can reuse, so the earth we will not lose
Turn off the light don’t blow a fuse, or we’ll be stuck singing the blues
Turn a pop bottle into a shirt, don’t leave your tires in the dirt
We all must stay alert, or it is the earth that will be hurt
    CHORUS    
We use so much paper in this school, lots of homework is the rule
All the trees will think we’re cool, so recycle, don’t be a fool!
Throwing that can in the trash, we miss out on a mound of cash
To the recycling center we can dash, and save the earth in a flash
    CHORUS
    Ending Chorus:
    Reduce, recycle, reuse!  Reduce, recycle, reuse!
    Come along and join our group, Buy recycled, close the loop
    An offer that you can’t refuse, Number 1 on the list of your to-do’s
    Reduce, recycle, reuse!  Reduce, recycle, reuse!
    An offer that you can’t refuse...Reduce, recycle, reuse!
