I'm Doing It For Myself


John Paul 1 School - Grade 1B

Song Subject: Responsibility



CHORUS:

I’m not waiting for anybody else

I’m doing it for myself

I’m my own person and I take care of me

When I take responsibility

I’m not waiting for anybody else, ‘cuz

I’m doing it for myself

I’m doing it for myself




I get up in the morning and brush my hair

Put on my clothes and my clean underwear

Brush my teeth and make my bed

Remember my agenda like my teacher said…


CHORUS


When I get to school I take off my boots

When it’s cold outside I put on my snowsuit

I listen to my teacher and we take our turn

The harder I study the better I learn…


CHORUS, plus END: tag last line and slow down





Don't Let Anybody

Squish Your Ish



John Paul 1 School - Grade 3 3/4B 

Song Subject: Creativity/Thinking For Oneself


"This song was inspired by the book "Ish" by Peter Reynolds -

I was given "homework" to read this story, and of course, loved it -

a highly recommended book!" - Bobby Boogaloo




CHORUS:

I’m not going to let anybody put out my fire

I was born to dream and I’m always reaching higher

There’s a spark in me and I keep it precious

So I say: “don’t let anybody squish your ish!”




Don’t let anybody squish your dream

Keep your ish safe and clean

It doesn’t matter what anyone may say

Just do it for you and you do it your way


CHORUS


The only failure is not trying

When I free my ish I feel like I’m flying

Like a bright star shining in the night

My ish shall be my guiding light


CHORUS
