lisabyers I'm excited by this song as you can play the ukelele and sing. It is NZ music month and we think this song fits our learning and interests as a school. I have bookmarked your page and will be following what you produce. Thanks I'm very excited to be sharing this with my class as part of NZ Music Month.

lyrics

Lie down in the river
float out on the waves
it’s cold and we shiver
but summer’s coming back again
Lie down in the river
float out on the waves
it’s cold and we shiver
but summer’s coming back summer’s coming back summer’s coming back again

I need clean water flowing all around me from the top of Aoraki to te moana-nui-a-kiwa
let’s clean it up
from the source right down to the sea our precious springs
where water sings
a pure song
may it go on and on
for all the world and me

65% water
That’s a human being
worth more than money
water brings life to every living thing
It’s not to own
It’s not to keep
even in our bones
and flowing in and out of me
dried up I shrivel like a pea
come on get wet - jump in the salty sea let’s keep the water clean
