Teamwork, Positivity

Written by Laura Sears

Chorus: Teamwork..Positivity, Teamwork..Positivity, Teamwork..Positivity, Teamwork..Positivity

We’ve got a lot to do here, there’s so much to get done
Vida Verde’s got a plan for us all to have some fun
But if you want to have fun, do something different than at home
You’ve got to work together
You can’t do it alone!
Chorus

At Vida Verde we’ve got goats and they love to meet kids
But they like you to be nice and not flip your lids
When you think happy thoughts you’ve got positivity
Then the goats might let you milk them
It’s a possibility!
Chorus

When you walk into the forest you might say “I don’t like dirt”
“I feel uncomfortable here, and hey, what if I get hurt?”
With positivity you can chase your fears away
And if you help your friends along
It could be your favorite day!
Chorus

Now I heard at Vida Verde they’ve got really great food
You can even do the cooking if you’re in the mood
And if you want the dishes clean for breakfast time
We’ve got to work together
Make an assembly line!
Chorus

Vida Verde’s lots of fun, there’s so many things to do
It might be different from home, but between me and you
Working together and having fun is a great way to be
And living life this way means
New Possibilities!
Chorus


SCAT

It starts with an S and it ends with a T
It comes out of you
and it comes out of me
I know what you’re thinking
But don’t call it that
Let’s be scientific, and call it SCAT
It was a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

You can find it on the ground
It’s usually colored brown
It is shaped in a mound
It is a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

You can smell it with your nose
It’s gonna decompose
It’s where the fungus grows
It is a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

Birds flying through the air
Look out! Beware!
It landed in your hair
It was a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

I was hiking through the fog
When I saw a big log
It came from a dog
It was a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

I was tired of TV
I was checking out the trees
I could smell it on the breeze
It was a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

I know it’s kind of gory
But it’s a true story
It marks territory
It is a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

I picked up a chicken
And something was drippin’
It wasn’t finger-lickin’
It was a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

A squirrel ate a nut
Digested in its gut
It came out of its butt
It was a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

If you park your car
By the woods or a field
You might find something on your windshield
Full of berries
Both purple and white
You just got bombed by a bird in flight
It was a piece of scat
(PIECE OF SCAT!)

Banana Slug

(From the Banana Slug String Band)

You know I love my baby (love my baby)
I love the way that she hugs (way that she hugs)
Some people don’t understand it (don’t understand it)
She’s a banana slug (banana slug)
Chorus

BAAA-NAAA-NAAA SLUG! SLUG! SLUG! SLUG!
BANANA SLUG, BANANA NANA NANA
BANANA SLUG, BANANA NANA NANA
BANANA SLUG, BANANA NANA NANA
BANANA SLUG, BANANA NANA NANA

He’s got just one foot
He ain’t got no toes
He hangs out in the forest
And helps it decompose.
Chorus

Well some folks say that she’s gross
But I won’t take that jive
Cause if it weren’t for my baby
The forest might not survive.
Chorus

The way you wiggle your antenna
You know you give me such bliss
Come on come on come on banana slug
Won’t you blow me a kiss.
Chorus

The way you slide through the forest
You know you look so fine
Come on come on come on banana slug
Won’t you show me your slime.
Chorus

You know I love my baby
But he don’t need me
That’s because he’s hermaphroditic
That means he’s also a she!
Chorus


Sticky as peanut butter
Shade of yellow
Look like banana
But oh so mellow!
Chorus

Shake it up baby
Twist and slime
Come on come on come on banana slug
Oh you slime so fine.
Chorus

She’s got 20,000 teeth
But she never ever smiles
It takes her 9 whole days
To go just one mile!
Chorus


Don’t Worry, the Teepee Song

(to the tune of Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds”)

Lyrics by Laura and Shawn Sears

Chorus
Don’t worry, about a thing
Cause every little thing
is gonna be alright
X2

Rise up in the morning,
smile at my friend sleeping
3 little teepees,
Step out my door hole
Feeling so happy, we made it the whole night through
Singin, this is our message to you
Chorus

All the wild creatures,
are gonna leave you alone
They care about survival
Finding water, food, and home
You’re so much bigger,
they ain’t gonna mess with you
Singin, this is our message to you
Chorus

If in the nighttime,
you feel that you have to go
Don’t try to hold it,
Step out and let it flow.
You’ll feel so much better,
and warmer and back to sleep
Singin, this is our message to you
Chorus

I thought it was scary,
I didn’t want to sleep alone
3 mapachitos,
Might steal my candy
But my friends are with me,
and now I feel right at home
Singin, this is our message to you

 

Mosaic Music

You may remember the music we listened to when we were driving to the ocean, the farm and the redwood forest? It was a CD from a program called the Mosaic Project. Here’s a link to their website where you can here the songs and buy the CD: mosaicproject.org/cds
