2nd Grade Concert Songs

Our 2nd Grade Concert will be held on Friday, March 20, 2015 at 9:30 AM in the East Hills Gym.

Here are the lyrics for our concert songs so students can practice at home.


Star Spangled Banner
 
O say, can you see by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
Through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
 
 
The Community Song
 
Chorus
There’s so much going on around me,
Sometimes I think that it is all about me,
Then I look around and see what’s in front of me,
It’s you and me,
We help others in need.
 
Instrumental Interlude
 
Verse 1
I am a citizen of my society,
And I participate in my community.
I do my part.  I keep it clean.
I make this world a better place for you and me. 
 
Verse 2
I love my neighbor, I treat them good.
I show respect and dignity like I should.
I love my family. I follow all the rules,
I take responsibility for what I need to do.

Verse 3
I do all I can to make this world a better place,
Show respect to my neighbor and to the whole human race,

How about you?

All I Really Need
 
All I really need is a song in my heart,
Food in my belly and love in my family.
All I really need is a song in my heart,
And love in my family.
 
And I need the rain to fall.
And I need the sun to shine,
To give life to the seeds we sow,
To give the food we need to grow,
All I really need is a song in my heart,
And love in my family.
 
All I really need is a song in my heart,
Food in my belly and love in my family.
All I really need is a song in my heart,
And love in my family.
 
And I need some clean water for drinking.
And I need some clean air for breathing.
So that I can grow up strong,
Take my place where I belong,
All I really need is a song in my heart,
And love in my family.
 
All I really need is a song in my heart,
Food in my belly and love in my family.
All I really need is a song in my heart,
And love in my family.
 
 
It’s a Small World
 
It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears.
It’s a world of hopes and a world of fears.
There’s so much that we share, and it’s time we’re aware,
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small, small world.
 
There is just one moon and one golden sun,
And a smile means friendship to everyone.
Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide,
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small world after all.
It’s a small, small world.
 
This Land is Your Land
 
Chorus:
This land is your land, this land is my land,
From California to the New York island.
From the redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters,
This land was made for you and me.
 
As I went walking that ribbon of highway,
I saw above me that endless skyway,
I saw below me that golden valley.
This land was made for you and me.
 
Chorus
 
I roamed and rambled, and I followed my footsteps,
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts.
All around me a voice was sounding,
This land was made for you and me.
 
Chorus
 
You’ve Got a Friend in Me
 
You’ve got a friend in me.
You’ve got a friend in me.
When the road looks rough ahead,
And you’re miles and miles from your nice warm bed,
You just remember what your old pal said,
Boy, you’ve got a friend in me.
You’ve got a friend in me.
 
You’ve got a friend in me.
You’ve got a friend in me.
If you’ve got troubles, and I got ‘em too.
There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you.
If we stick together we can see it through,
‘Cause you’ve got a friend in me.
You’ve got a friend in me.
East Hills School Song
 
Verse 1:
There’s a great place in Roslyn,
It’s called the East Hills School.
We’re the young generation, America’s future,
Our teachers are really cool.
 
Verse 2:
As we walk through our halls,
With our minds open wide,
It’s the East Hills School,
That makes our faces beam with pride.

Respect and honesty,
Values that we learn,
This is how it’s meant to be
‘Cause we are the East Hills Family
We are the East Hills Family.
 
Verse 3:
Peace and love and harmony
This is our true test.
Building friendships to last a lifetime,
Roslyn Bulldogs are the best.
 
 
Chorus:
Respect and honesty,
Values that we learn,
This is how it’s meant to be
‘Cause we are the East Hills Family
We are the East Hills Family.
 
Coda:

Music Friends
By Mrs. Ziporkin
 
Favorite songs are here to stay,
We will sing some for you today.
French horn, flute, sharp or flat,
The music room is where it’s at.
 
Rock and roll, rap and rhyme,
Always try to keep good time.
Tapping rhythms in our feet,
That is why we’ve got the beat.
 
Instruments are great to play,
Xylophones can make your day.
If you want to have some fun,
Try your skills out on a drum.
 
Everywhere around the world,
Just listen close a song is heard.
Even here at our own school,
Our East Hills musicians rule!
 
Notes are written on the staff,
Silly songs can make us laugh.
Listen to us sing a while,
We guarantee that you will smile.
 
Dance and move just like a star,
We know just how lucky we are.
Feeling the pulse now it’s a start,
Music is truly inside our heart.
 
Sing out loud and sing out strong,
Music is where we belong.
We wish the music never ends,
When we are singing with our friends!
