My granddaughter Gracie can lose track of time easily, forgetting the task at hand. I thought I needed to write her a time management song. I decided to use the traditional tune "Grandfather's Clock" because it suited the subject matter so well.
Time is a gift! We all have the same amount, 24 hours. How will we use it? Wisely or wastefully? This song motivates the listener to be a diligent doer of good. Shake off the lazy bones and work hard like crazy-bones. You'll enjoy the classical lullaby feel of this song, complete with chiming clock and cuckoo clock!
(Tune: My Grandfather's Clock - public domain)
Our time is a gift that we all get the same
Just 24 hours in a day.
Some use it wisely and some choose to waste
The moments that tick tock away.
Oh how much we would gain
If we all made it our aim
To be diligent doers of good!
Then we stop, rest, and start up again
And work hard as we all know we should.
So I won't be a LazyBones (tick tock tick tock)
I will work hard like Crazy Bones (tick tock tick tock)
Then we'll stop, rest and start up again
As we sing and smile!
Pure Joy! Thank you as always for your inspiring work! This song fits ideally Sesame Street and or Mr. Rogers Neiborhood. It's a treasure, really made my day!.
