Get Up

Get up, get up, get out of bed
The sun is shining overhead
It’s a day for adventure, a day for fun
There’s a life worth living out under the sun

1. So open your eyes, put a brush to your teeth
A shirt on your back and shoes on your feet
Watch where you step, don’t trip on the stuff on the floor
Sit down at the table, have something to drink
Finish your milk, put your glass in the sink
A pat to the dog, a kiss to your mom and you’re out the door


2. Jump on your horse, go out for a ride
Life is the best with a friend at your side
Searchin’ for dragons and dinosaurs out on the run
Head to the beach, take a big pail
Go for a swim on the back of a whale
Build a sand castle, then knock it down
And you’re having fun


You know that Mr. Sun is gonna shine right through your window
He chased the moon away some time ago
You’d give anything to put your head back on your pillow
And back to sleep you’d go!
