1. The Next Big Step - with vocals.mp3

It’s the next big step on an open road,
It’s a new chapter in our lives,
It’s a leap into the great unknown,
And the time to take it…..has now arrived!

So, here we are and here we stand,
The end of an era is close at hand.
We’ve had some fun, it’s been a blast,
But our big farewell has come at last.
These summer holidays are really gonna fly,
We’ve only got six weeks to learn to knot a new school tie!

It’s the next big step…..

We’ve learned to write, and how to read,
And all the times-tables we’ll ever need,
What life was like in World War 2,
How forces pull and push on you.
We faced those dreaded SATs but handled them with ease,
Now there’s a five year wait until we take GCSEs!

It’s the next big step…..

Yes, we’re a little scared
Of what is lying in wait,
As we take our first step
Through that ‘big school’ gate

It’s the next big step…..

2. Born To Make A Mess - with vocals.mp3

Born to make a mess!
Sorry, it’s our destiny
To cause grown-ups distress.
We’re not cut out for ‘clean and tidy’!
Ok, we could help
And put some toys away – there’s nothing to it.
However, it’s easier
To sit and watch a grown-up do it!
It’s just nature, we know it frustrates ya.
There’s no cure, no pill to take,
Yeah, every child was born to make a mess!

Born to make a mess!
Mummy, we don’t really mean to
Put you under stress
When you give our rooms a seeing to!
So once in a while,
If there’s a threat to stop our pocket money,
We’ll put some effort in
And make our beds, now ain’t that funny!
It’s just nature, we know it frustrates ya.
There’s no cure, no pill to take,
Yeah, every child was born to make a mess!

Born to make a mess!
Take, for instance, our games kit.
When we get undressed
To do PE, it’s like a bomb’s hit!
And there on the floor,
Along with felt tip pens and squashed oil pastels,
We drop our socks and tee shirts –
What a bunch of scruffy rascals!
It’s just nature, we know it frustrates ya.
There’s no cure, no pill to take,
Yeah, every child was born to make a mess!
It’s just nature, we know it frustrates ya.
There’s no cure, no pill to take,
Yeah, every child was born to make a……MESS!

3. Oh What A Drama - with vocals.mp3

Oh, what a drama! It’s completely off the scale!
Forget about Eastenders, Corrie, Emmerdale.
For storylines and characters to take your breath away,
Just come and spend a day with us at school.
For instance…

Katie from year one couldn’t get her plimsolls on,
So she thought “Bare feet, that’s no big deal.”
You should have heard the din as an upturned drawing pin
Quickly found its way into her heel!
Daniel from year two, with nothing else to do,
Coloured in his face with felt-tip pen!
They had to scrub his cheeks with scouring pads and bleach!
You bet he won’t be doing that again!

Becky from year three has a rodent allergy,
But this was just discovered yesterday.
When she was introduced to the new class hamster, Bruce,
She sneezed so hard the poor thing blew away!
Jamie from year four looked over the toilet door
To try and give the occupant a scare.
Well his heart began to race as he came face to face
With the teacher who was sitting there!

Charlotte from year five is lucky to be alive,
She didn’t catch a rounders ball quite right!
It hit her in the mouth and her front teeth all fell out,
So when she smiles it’s not a pretty sight!
Simon from year six has been up to his old tricks,
He put a spider on his teacher’s chair.
Her screaming, so they say, could be heard ten streets away,
As it crawled into her underwear!

Oh, what a drama! It’s completely off the scale!
Forget about Eastenders, Corrie, Emmerdale.
For storylines and characters to take your breath away,
Just come and spend a day with us at school.
Come and spend a day with us at school.

4. Infants Are Scary - with vocals.mp3

They’re creepy critters, 3 feet tall,
Who seem to get everywhere.
Shoes on the wrong feet, gloves on strings,
And Pritt-Stick in their hair.
The garbled tongue in which they speak
Is alien to me,
It’s proof that they’re all creatures from
Another galaxy! Oh…..

Infants are very extraordinary,
They’re a breed apart.
Everyone be wary, ’cause infants are scary,
They’ve got spooking down to a fine art.

The lunchtime din they generate
Is like a volcanic eruption,
As they wield their knives and forks
Like weapons of mass-destruction.
And when they’re done the call goes out
For dustpan, mop and brush,
Because their food’s gone everywhere
Apart from in their mush! Oh….

Infants are very extraordinary……

Well words like ‘sit’ and ‘still’ aren’t part
Of their vocabulary,
And periods of peace and quiet
Are only temporary.
And when they’re asked to share a favourite toy
They weep and wail,
Their tantrums shattering the calm
Just like a force ten gale! Oh….

Infants are very extraordinary……

5. Football Mums And Dads - with vocals.mp3

We stand on the touchline feeling tense
Like wound-up rubber bands.
We heckle the opposition’s defence
To get the upper hand.
This means more than anything,
It’s straight to bed without their tea if they don’t win!

Come on son, get the job done,
Do what it takes to get the game won!
Come on lads, forget the shin pads,
You gotta be tough like
FOOTBALL MUMS AND DADS!

It’s nearly half-time and they’re three nil down,
Call this a football team?
They don’t play like Wayne Rooney plays,
They play more like Coleen!
Time to get dirty, tug those shirts,
The ref’s not looking so kick ’em where it hurts!

Come on son, get the job done…..

Oi! Wake up Referee!
He’s offside! Penalty!
Show the red card, that tackle was late!
Something’s wrong with your whistle, mate!

Instrumental

Come on son, get the job done,
Do what it takes to get the game won!
Take the knocks, pull up your socks,
If you go down, go down in the box.
Get stuck in, land one on the chin,
Anything goes so long as you win.
Come on lads, forget the shin pads,
You gotta be tough like
FOOTBALL MUMS AND DADS!

6. The Latest Craze - with vocals.mp3

A five pound note is burning a hole in my pocket
I’ve got the urge to spend, and I can’t stop it!
Wanna be the first to get
The full and complete set
Of the latest craze that’s gone on sale today.

Moshi Monsters, fake tattoos and stencils,
Fluffy things that you stick on the end of your pencils.
Yo-yos have come and gone,
Remember Pokémon?
The latest craze has gone on sale today.

(Instrumental during which the children pair up to swap/squabble over the items – or others – mentioned above.)

Pop star magazines, Harry Potter figurines,
The latest craze has gone on sale today.

A week’s gone by and we need a new direction,
’Cause everybody’s bored with their collection.
So our priority
Is the adverts on TV….to find out
What’s the latest craze on sale today.

7. Boys And Girls - with vocals.mp3

When we were in nappies, not very long ago,
Pre-molars and incisors had just begun to grow.
So blissfully ignorant of what was coming next,
Then we started school and had to mix
With the opposite sex!

Well boys will be boys and girls will be girls,
And never the twain shall care,
Until, that is, we reach the dizzy heights of year 6,
Then it’s all downhill from there!

For infants it’s easy, they still don’t have a clue
Of dangers which await them in just a year or two!
Afternoons spent happily just playing in the sand,
And a game of ‘catch’ at morning break
Never gets out of hand!

Well boys will be boys…..

Instrumental


But now we are older, it’s different than before,
A smile across the classroom, it means a little more.
9 o’clock we ‘fall in love’, by 10 we’re ‘going out’,
But they’re dumped at lunchtime ‘cause we’d miss
Our lads’ kick-about!

Well boys will be boys and girls will be girls,
And never the twain shall care,
Until, that is, we reach the dizzy heights of year 6,
Then it’s all downhill, well it’s all downhill,
Yes it’s all downhill from there!

8. Ride Our Bikes - with vocals.mp3


Way back before we were so concerned with ‘health and safety’,
We did much more of those risky things we love, but lately
They’ve all been banned, been shelved and canned
In case we get a bruise or
We bump our heads or scratch our legs.
But left alone we’d choose to…..


Ride our bikes, and…yikes! Even try with no hands!
Go for broke at breaststroke not wearing armbands!
Graze our knees up trees, and take the knocks!
And run about without our shoes and socks on!


It used to be that a snow ball was not frowned upon,
We would happily take one on the chin then carry on.
We’d skid over ice and pay the price
With frozen hands and feet but
Full of fresh air, we didn’t care.
It felt like such a treat to…..


Ride our bikes…………


Oh how we long for a break-time playing British Bulldog,
And ‘all pile on’, piggyback jousting, a game of leapfrog.
And if we come a cropper someone’s there
To rub it better.
Don’t mind the pain, join in again,
Take home a ‘bumped-head’ letter.


Ride our bikes…………

9. We'll Shine - with vocals.mp3

And so the time’s arrived
To say our last goodbye.
We’ll leave this stage and turn the page
To a new chapter in our lives.
Yes we know our hearts are gonna break a little
And tears may be shed,
But we’re looking at a new horizon,
A glittering future lies ahead.

And we’ll shine like the stars that we are.
We’ll seize the day and make our way,
And we’ll fly in a clear blue sky
But won’t lose sight of where it all began.

With every step we take
With every choice we make,
We’ll try our best, enjoy success,
And we’ll learn from each mistake.
Yes we know that waiting just around the corner
There are hills to climb,
But you’ve given us a strength of spirit
To reach the summit every time.

And we’ll shine……

And to this special place
Of which we’ve been a part,
We want to say a great big ‘thank you’
From the heart…..

And we’ll shine……

Repeat Chorus
