Do Your Thing
This week, as part of Circle Time, Year 5 will be learning the a song called 'Do Your Thing' by a composer and songwriter known as Moondog. We would appreciate if you would look at the lyrics and practice at home.
Do your thing!
Be fancy-free to call the tune you sing.
Don't give up!
That's not the way to win a loving cup.
Do your best,
And opportunity will do the rest.
Don't give in!
Capitulation is the greatest sin.
Do what's right,
What's right for you, to do with all your might.
What might have been, you might as well forget.
Stand your ground,
And while you're standing there, be duty-bound.
Learn to wait,
And while you're waiting, learn to concentrate.
All enemies I call potential friends,
Calm your fears,
And hope to cope at least a hundred years.
Make your mark!
If need be, even make it in the dark.
Mum's the word!
My sage advice, pretend you haven't heard.
