The Lonely Scarecrow
I stand in a field alone keeping watch
The sun and the moon are my only clock
In the morning and evening I'll always be there
I never go off for a walk anywhere.
Standing here trying to scare the birds away
Oh what a laugh they just come to take my hay away
\\So they can build their nests high up in the trees
I really do wish I could be as free
Children come along they just stand and stare
At my tatty old coat and my long matted hair
They never see me smile or shed a tear
I have to be brave when they are near
I am a lonely scarecrow as lonely as could ...
Our Friend The Whale
Please listen to my tale, about our graceful whale
.She only has one plea and that is to stay free.
She wanders through the open sea, an awesome sight for all who see.
But she's as gentle as a lamb and poses not a threat to man.
Her beautiful song is sung in the deep blue sea.
But is she sining or crying out to you and me? .
She does not want to live in fear of the fishermen who draw near.
Thier harpoon guns upon the decks.
We've all heard and seen what comes next.
