Ocean & Swing Alex Sternin
The sky’s getting bluer, I take deep breath in, I jump in the ocean, I swing with the swing. Today I’ll be seaweed – Tomorrow the wind, Because there is ocean, The ocean and swing.
I wonder who and why and where Had made up rules on what to wearâ€Ś And how to play, And what to eat, And whom to like, And how to beâ€Ś
Because when I got up today, I thought that it might be ok To paint my shoes bright-sparkly-red And only make half of my bed,
And hop one legged down the street, Smiling at people that I meetâ€Ś
Ride my bike up to the sky, I will kiss my room good-bye. I will fly above the rooftops – picking apples from the trees. And when sun tells me it’s noon – I will head up towards the moon. Have a picnic, Chase the stars, Watch the earth spin from afar …
I find I am always on the go, And she’s on the fly He’s on the swing, They’re on the run, But sometimes being still is fun.
One two three four five: I just came alive Six seven eight nine: I will take whatâ€™s mine Nine eight seven six: This time I am playing for keeps Five four three two one: Itâ€™s time for me to have FUN.
