UP KIND OF DAY Up Kind of Day

Copyright 2008  Amy Lacey and FlyLady

Sometimes I think that sun is rising too soon
Can I just pull the covers over my head?
But then I think of all I’ve got to do now
First thing is to get my body out of this bed!

So I get up! Up! Here I go
Even if I’m starting slow
I’m smiling and groovin’
Gotta get this body movin’
Thinkin’ up! Up! Kind of thoughts
Gonna give this new day all I’ve got
And in no time at all, things are going my way
Gonna have an up! Up! Kind of day!

(Up! Up! Up Kind of Day)
(Up! Up! Up Kind of Day)

I know sometimes there will be things that get me down
My day won’t always go the way that I plan
But I’m a tough kid, I can deal with it
I’ll make the best of it, I know that I can

So I get up! Up! Here I go
Even if I’m starting slow
I’m smiling and groovin’
Gotta get this body movin’
Thinkin’ up! Up! Kind of thoughts
Gonna give this new day all I’ve got
And in no time at all, things are going my way
Gonna have an up! Up! Kind of day!

(Up! Up! Up Kind of Day)
(Up! Up! Up Kind of Day)

Even if my day seems low
Nowhere for my dreams to go
I’ll still reach for the sky
It’s time to watch me FLY!

(on an up kind of day, yeah!)
(Up! Up! Up kind of day!)

So I get up! Up! Here I go
Even if I’m starting slow
I’m smiling and groovin’
Gotta get this body movin’
Thinkin’ up! Up! Kind of thoughts
Gonna give this new day all I’ve got
And in no time at all, things are going my way
Gonna have an up! Up! Kind of day!

(Up! Up! Up Kind of Day)
(Up! Up! Up Kind of Day)

FLY KID

Copyright 2008 Amy Lacey and FlyLady

I’m a FLY Kid
I’m a Super FLY Kid
I’m the one who’s gonna help you out
I’m a FLY Kid
I’m a Super FLY Kid
I’m a FLY Kid, FLY Kid

I like to always stay on task
And get it done before I’m asked
So I can have more time outside to play
I used to whine and carry on
Complain the task just took too long
But then I finally learned a better way…

Chorus

I know my routines today
I’ll get them done before I play
‘Cause no on likes to do the work alone
I will always do my best
To quickly clear away my mess
And I will help us make a groovy home

I’m a FLY Kid
I’m a Super FLY Kid
I’m the one who’s gonna help you out
I’m a FLY Kid
I’m a Super FLY Kid
I know what it’s all about
If you want someone who’s ready
I’ll be rockin’ steady
Movin’ till this room starts to shine
I’m a swishin’ and a swipin’
Feather-Duster-wipin’
FLY Kid flying high

ROCKIN’ ROUTINES

Copyright 2008 Amy Lacey and FlyLady

First thing in the morning, I clear my head
I stretch and yawn to greet the day then make my bed
Get myself all ready down to my shoes
A Healthy breakfast puts me in a rockin’ mood

Routines, routines, they keep me rockin’
Routines, routines, there’s no stoppin’ me
When I feel the power
Of my rockin’ routines

After school or after lunch I keep my cool
‘Cause afternoons have routines now and that’s my rule
Homework before playing, quickly get it done
After that I’m out of here and off to have some fun

Chorus

Routines can organize my day
Give me much more time for play
Help me know what coming next
I think routines are the best

With P.J.s on I brush my teeth: time for bed
My last routine helps me relax and plan ahead
Lay clothes out for tomorrow; think about my day
So proud that my routines have kept me rockin’ on my way

My rockin’ routines
They’re my rockin’ routines!

SO LONG DUST SAMBA

There’s a lot to do, ’cause we’re leaving soon
You don’t need to pack a lot, but you better throw a smile in

We’re climbing Mt. Washmore and flinging junk that we’ve got
So much fun in store, in the great indoors

BOOGIE

(A. Moulton, V. Christensen)
(arranged A. Lacey) (copyright 2007) FlyLady and Amy Lacey

Verse 1:

Pull the covers on my head
Somethin’ stinks beneath my bed
Can’t face my room to day!
Stubbed my toe and scraped my knee
With all the toys surrounding me
I don’t have room to play.
I can’t find my book
No matter where I look
And I just lost my shoes
So many toys around
They’re tumbling down
Tell me Mama, what do I do?

(She said…)
Chorus:

Pick it up and Pack it out
Decide what you can do without
So you have room to play!
Having junk around
Only brings you down
So Boogie that clutter away!
Only keep the toys that bring you joy
And pass the rest along
You can FLY when you simplify
And sing the Bedroom Boogie Song!

Verse 2:

Broken book, banana peel
A truck with only ½ a wheel
I’ll throw these away.
But the teddy bear
And the game up there
Will bless someone else today
I’ve been hangin’ on
For way too long
Time to let them go.
This room is growin’
The more I’m throwin’
I’m glad I finally know…

(How to…)
Chorus:

Pick it up and Pack it out
Decide what I can do without
So I have room to play!
Having junk around
Only brings me down
So I’ll Boogie that clutter away!
I only keep the toys that bring me joy
And pass the rest along
I can FLY when I simplify
And sing the Bedroom Boogie Song!

(Rockin’ Instrumental)

Bridge:

Mamma sent me in here
Thought it would take a year
For me to get it all done.
But now her eyes are poppin’
And her jaw is dropping’
And I’m off to have some fun!
(Yeah, yeah yeah! When I…)

Chorus:

Pick it up and Pack it out
Decide what I can do without
So I have room to play!
Having junk around
Only brings me down
So I’ll Boogie that clutter away!]
I only keep the toys that bring me joy
And pass the rest along
I can FLY when I simplify
And sing the Bedroom Boogie
The Bedroom Boogie
The Bedroom Boogie Song!

2-MINUTE CLEAN UP

ROOM PATROL

TOY BOX TANGO

LAUNCH PAD

(copyright 2008 Amy Benson Lacey and FlyLady)

There’s a place I know in every FlyKid’s home that they visit every night
It’s where they put some things to get them in the swing for tomorrow’s thrilling flight
A lunchbox, a backpack, some homework, a jacket
Everything they need
So when morning has come and they’re running around they’ll be
Blasting off with speed
‘Cause their

Launch pad’s ready to go
Their launch pad’s ready to go
Like a cool space shuttle they FLY on the double
When their launch pad’s ready to go (Oh Oh Oh)
Like an astronaut ready to take off
Put your cargo in one place
If you think ahead before you go to bed
You’ll be sailing smooth all day
So check on the weather, decide if you’d rather
Walk or take the bus
If you know what’s comin’, it’s so much more fun and
You’re in command because

Your Launch pad’s ready to go
Your launch pad’s ready to go
Like a cool space shuttle you FLY on the double
When your launch pad’s ready to go (Oh Oh Oh)
So just stop for a minute
And if something’s missing, then you run and get it

So your
Launch pad’s ready to go
Your launch pad’s ready to go
Like a cool space shuttle you FLY on the double
When your launch pad’s ready to go (Oh Oh Oh)

VEGGIE BLUES

GOOD DEED DOER

copyright 2008 Cecelia Benson, Alison Moulton, Amy Lacey, and FlyLady

(ooh…ooh…ooh)
I saw him standing there
A sad look in his eye
The kids raced to the playground
But each one passed him by
He was just the new kid here
But then I saw his face
My momma’s words raced through my mind
It was like I heard her sayin’

Be a good deed doer and do it every day
One kind deed will go so far to make this world a better place
Be a good deed doer and you may be surprised
Doing good to others makes you feel so good inside

(ooh…ooh…ooh…)
Slowly I walked up to him
I said ,”What’s your name?”
His eyes began to sparkle,
A smile crossed his face
Now he’s not a stranger here
Now he is my friend
My life has been better
All because my momma said

Be a good deed doer and do it every day
One kind deed will go so far to make this world a better place
Be a good deed doer and you may be surprised
Doing good to others makes you feel so good inside

(repeat chorus and oohs)

TIME TO DREAM

WINGS TO FLY

Ali and Paul Moulton, arr. Amy Lacey
(copyright 2007) FlyLady and Amy Lacey

Verse 1:

Sometimes I watch you playing
Not a care in the world
And dreams so big they fill the summer sky
How do I give you all you need
To make it in this world
To keep you safe
But let you learn to FLY?

Chorus:

I’ll give you Hope
So you can follow dreams that are your own
I’ll give you Strength
For times when you must stand up all alone
I’ll teach you Truth
So when I’m not there you still know what’s right
I’ll give you Wings
God sends the Breeze
And you’ll learn to FLY

Verse 2:

I wish I could protect you
When the world is not kind
To shield you from beneath and from above
Although you’ll have your troubles
And you will cry your tears
Child, you will never doubt
That you are loved!

Chorus:

I’ll give you Hope
So you can follow dreams that are your own
I’ll give you Strength
For times when you must stand up all alone
I’ll teach you Truth
So when I’m not there you still know what’s right
I’ll give you Wings
God sends the Breeze
And you’ll learn to FLY

Bridge:

I’m amazed at your strength
How you grow each day
I can’t wait to see all you’ll become…
But for now, I’ll just watch you play

Chorus:

I’ll give you Hope
So you can follow dreams that are your own
I’ll give you Strength
For times when you must stand up all alone
I’ll teach you Truth
So when I’m not there you still know what’s right
I’ll give you Wings
God sends the Breeze
And you’ll learn to FLY
I’ll give you Wings
God sends the Breeze
And you’ll learn to FLY
