Lyrics – Count on Me – Bruno Mars

[Verse 1:]
Oh uh-huh
If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see
I’ll be the light to guide you

We find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

[Chorus:]
You can count on me like 1, 2, 3
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it
I can count on you like 4, 3, 2
And you’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah
Ooooooh, oooohhh yeah, yeah

[Verse 2:]
If you’re tossin’ and you’re turnin’
And you just can’t fall asleep
I’ll sing a song beside you
And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me
Every day I will remind you

Oooh
We find out what we’re made of
When we are called to help our friends in need

[Chorus:]
You can count on me like 1, 2, 3
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it
I can count on you like 4, 3, 2
And you’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah
Ooooooh, oooohhh yeah, yeah

You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry
I’ll never let go, never say goodbye
You know…

[Chorus:]
You can count on me like 1, 2, 3
I’ll be there
And I know when I need it
I can count on you like 4, 3, 2
And you’ll be there
‘Cause that’s what friends are supposed to do, oh yeah
Ooooooh, oooohhh

You can count on me ’cause I can count on you

MIDDLE C

Awesome Middle C students, please find below the lyrics and vocal track for Naughty – one of the wonderful songs from Matilda the Musical, written and composed by Australian,Tim Minchin.

Play this vocal track while you sing a-long with the lyrics under- neath.

Naughty

 

Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water.

So they say, their subsequent fall was inevitable.

They never stood a chance;

they were written that way –

Innocent victims of their story.
Like Romeo and Juliet,

‘Twas written in the stars before they even met

That love and fate (and a touch of stupidity)

Would rob them of their hope of living happily.

The endings are often a little bit gory.

I wonder why they didn’t just change their story.

We’re told we have to do what we’re told, but surely

Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.
[Chorus:]

Just because you find that life’s not fair, it

Doesn’t mean that you just have to grin and bear it.

If you always take it on the chin and wear it,

Nothing will change.

Even if you’re little you can do a lot, you

Mustn’t let a little thing like ‘little’ stop you.

If you sit around and let them get on top, you

Might as well be saying you think that it’s OK,

And that’s not right.
Cinderella, in the cellar,

Didn’t have to do much as far as I could tell.

Her Godmother was two thirds fairy.

Suddenly her lot was a lot less scary.

But what if you haven’t got a fairy to fix it?

Sometimes you have to make a little bit of mischief.
[Chorus:]

Just because you find that life’s not fair, it

Doesn’t mean that you just have to grin and bear it.

If you always take it on the chin and wear it,

Nothing will change.

Even if you’re little you can do a lot, you

Mustn’t let a little thing like ‘little’ stop you.

If you sit around and let them get on top, you

Might as well be saying you think that it’s OK,

And that’s not right.

And if it’s not right, you have to put it right.

In the slip of a bolt, there’s a tiny revolt.

The seeds of a war in the creak of a floorboard.

A storm can begin with the flap of a wing.

The tiniest mite packs the mightiest sting.

Every day starts with the tick of a clock.

All escapes start with the click of a lock.

If you’re stuck in your story and want to get out,

You don’t have to cry; you don’t have to shout.
‘Cause if you’re little, you can do a lot, you

Mustn’t let a little thing like ‘little’ stop you.

If you sit around and let them get on top, you

Won’t change a thing.

Just because you find that life’s not fair, it

Doesn’t mean that you just have to grin and bear it.

If you always take it on the chin and wear it,

You might as well be saying you think that it’s OK.

And that’s not right.

And if it’s not right, you have to put it right.
But nobody else is gonna put it right for me.

Nobody but me is gonna change my story.

Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty.

Lyrics That’s What Friends Are For

WHen you’re alone, who comes around
to pluck you up when you are down?
And when you’re outside looking in,
who’s there to open the door?
That’s what friends are for!
And when you’re lost AND WHEN YOU’RE LOST
In dire need, who’s at your side WHO’S AT YOUR SIDE
at lightning speed? LIGHTNING SPEED?
We’re friends with every creature comin’ down the pike.
In fact, we’ve never met a man cub that we didn’t like.
So you can see SO YOU CAN SEE
we’re friends in need WE’RE FRIENDS IN NEED
and friends in need AND FRIENDS IN NEED
are friends in deed ARE FRIENDS IN DEED
we’ll keep you safe in the jungle for ever more
(SHERE KHAN) that’s what friends are for! ROAR!

That’s What Friends Are For

I WANNA BE LIKE YOU

THE FINALE SONG! THE BARE NECESSITIES

THE BARE NECESSITIES
(EVERYONE)
Look for the bare necessities, the simple bare necessities;
Forget about your worries and your strife. I mean the bare necessities, or Mother Nature’s recipes that bring the bare necessities of life!
(MOWGLI)Wherever I wander, wherever I roam,
(EVERYONE)
I couldn’t be fonder of my big home. The bees are buzzin’ in the tree to make some honey just for me. You look under the rocks and plants and take a glance at the fancy ants, then maybe try a few. (MOWGLI)
Don’t mind if I do!
(EVERYONE)
Yeah! The bare necessities of life will come to you. They’ll come to you. They’ll come to you. They’ll come to you you you you. The bare necessities of life! Oh, yeah!

DISNEY’S ‘THE JUNGLE BOOK’ Kids               SYNOPSIS

(song titles are in the brackets)

 

Our tale begins deep in the heart of the Jungle. A baby boy, lost and abandoned, is raised by wolves. He is called “Mowgli” (“Jungle Prologue”).

Shere Kahn, the tiger, decides that Mowgli is no longer welcome in the Jungle. To keep him out of danger, Bagheera, the panther, plans to guide Mowgli to the safety of the man village, but Mowgli doesn’t want to leave his home. The two settle down for the night under a coconut tree, but their peaceful night is interrupted by Kaa, the Snake (“Kaa the Snake”). Bagheera doesn’t notice as Kaa, the snake lulls Mowgli into a deep sleep (“Trust in Me”). Bagheera wakes up to find Kaa coiled around Mowgli, and chases the snake away (“Night into Day”).

As they continue their journey, they encounter a herd of elephants, led by the dotty Colonel Hathi (“Colonel Hathi’s March”). As the elephants march off, Bagheera commands Mowgli to follow him without any more argument. Mowgli sits and pouts on a large boulder only to discover that it is the giant bear, Baloo (“Baloo the Bear”).

Baloo offers Mowgli his philosophy on life, which is quite different from what Bagheera has been teaching (“The Bare Necessities”). While Baloo is lost in that swingin’ jungle rhythm, a group of shifty-looking monkeys tiptoes in and kidnaps Mowgli. Caught off guard, Baloo calls to Bagheera for help, while the monkeys carry Mowgli deep into the jungle, laughing all the way (“Monkey Business”).

The monkeys take Mowgli to the ancient ruins, where their leader, the wiley King Louie, is holding court. King Louie tells Mowgli that he wants to learn how to be a man, while Baloo and Bagheera sneak on and devise a rescue plan. Baloo, disguised as a very big monkey, will join in the fun to distract King Louie, while Bagheera spirits Mowgli away (“I Wan’na Be Like You”).

Baloo can’t get enough of that jumpin’ jazz, and insists on an encore. He continues to swing until his disguise falls off, blowing their cover, and forcing them to run (“I Wan’na Be Like You Reprise”). The monkeys frantically follow in pursuit, but are stopped dead in their tracks when Shere Khan appears. He sharpens his claws and the monkeys scatter in terror (“Shere Khan the Tiger”).

After their monkey attack, Baloo now realizes the Jungle is too dangerous for Mowgli, and together with Bagheera, they agree to get him out of the jungle. Mowgli overhears, and not wanting to leave his home, defiantly runs away. Baloo and Bagheera rush off to find him, hoping that Shere Khan doesn’t find him first (“Mowgli Runs”).

Away from the safety of Baloo and Baghera, Mowgli finds friendship in the other jungle creatures, who promise to protect him if Shere Khan should come around (“That’s What Friends Are For”).

Shere Khan arrives, and prepares to attack Mowgli. But before he can pounce, Baloo appears, rallying the other jungle creatures into battle (“The Battle”). The battles ends with the jungle creatures victorious, and Shere Khan cowering in the distance, humiliated and defeated. Once again, the jungle is safe.

Shanti, a beautiful young girl who has been hiding in the jungle the whole time, finally reveals herself. She offers to take Mowgli to her village to meet other people just like him. Mowgli decides to explore the “man village” with Shanti, but reminds his friends he will return, for he will always consider the Jungle his home (“The Bare Necessities Reprise – Finale”).

As the curtain falls, the jungle inhabitants return once more to celebrate that swingin’ jungle beat (“I Wan’na Be Like You Reprise – Bows”).

 

WALTZING WITH MATILDA 2012

 

 

WALTZING WITH MATILDA (week 8 Term 2 Quadblogging)

Could every class please post a short synopsis of their part of the Australian history story that St Kevin’s will be presenting at The George Wood Performing Arts Centre on Friday 31st August (week 7).

Please include the props, costumes (all performers will all be wearing blacks – each class will decide what relevant clothing or prop piece can be added to the blacks – e.g. a hat from the era) and the set pieces you are planning to incorporate. Can each grade also post their ideas for the digital images for the ‘big’ screen, that will assist in communicating your part of our story.

I look forward to reading a lively discussion that affirms, clarifies, suggests and builds a whole school vision for our 2012 Production ‘Waltzing with Matilda’.

 

 

 

The video below will help you to learn the famous Australian ballad, Waltzing Matilda. In this video, famous Australian singer, song writer and painter Rolf Harris, explains the story of Waltzing Matilda and sings as well! Does his explanation help you understand the story? I like the way he sings the song because he does it with great energy and expression. What do you think? Rolf Harris also had a BIG hit with a song about little boys and soldiers called Two Little Boys.

  1. Hi mrs weston

    l would love to have a longer concert Indiana jones because its a action movie it would be fun for everyone because there are lots of parts and different movies of indiana jones so there would be more characters.

  2. Hi Mrs Weston,

    I think that we should do the lion king, jungle book 2, star wars or despicable me. I think we should do a longer play. Could we do a longer play?

  3. next time could we do something like a more of a adventures production like pirates of the caribean because these ones are getting a bit boring and we don’t get to do dialoge

    bye form jake and daniel

  4. hello mrs Weston
    we liked performing in the concert. We would like to ask you if we could change a few things 1 could it be longer and we could have more main roles 2 we have a few plays you might like to consider performing…

    lion king because it is interesting it has more action than other performances and it’s got lots of roles.
    jungle book 2 it would be nice to have a sequel
    the Wizard of oz its a really good musical and its also got the action.
    charlie and the chocolate factory a bit hard but it would look really good if it worked

    please consider one of these performances to be our next

    from Simon, Marco, Sanjeev and Giles
