It’s Singing Day! Hooray! Hooray!
It comes just once a year.
That holiday when things you say
Sound better to your ear!
When every thought inside your brain
Becomes a singing session.
When normal folks become insane
With musical expression!
Sing up! Sing out! Sing low! Sing high!
Sing everything you’re doing!
Sing to the birdies in the sky!
Sing to the cow that’s mooing!
Sing songs to all your friends and foes,
Sing to some strangers, too.
Sing to your teensy little toes!
Pretend they sing to you!
If you run out of songs to sing,
Just open up your ears.
The wind, the trees, most everything
Has songs to sing for years!
They’re singing up and down the street—
Go on and take a chance!
But don’t forget to rest your feet—
Next week’s the Day of Dance!
