MOSAIC

VERSE:

M is for MUTUAL RESPECT

Don't put me down and don't hurt me.

O is for OPEN MINDEDNESS

See me for who I am and don't judge me.

S is for SELF RESPECT and A is for ATTITUDE

You gotta love yourself and stay positive.

I is for INDIVIDUALITY and C is for COMMUNITY

When we come together in the places we live.


CHORUS:

MO MO MO MO MO saic (many times)


BRIDGE:

And if we live by these lessons

And spread them across land and sea

We can create a better future

And live together in peace.




Minuet in G by J. S. Bach

Bach wrote a minuet one day, he played it on his clavier.
Such lovely music played on a keyboard 300 years ago!
His 20 children loved this song, they sang and danced it all night long.
It's a French dance so take the right stance and we will all begin.
Li, li, li......loo, loo, loo
123, One twirl please
Li, li, li......loo, loo, loo
123, Then you take a bow



Concerto in E Major by J.S. Bach



Peace Will Come by Tom Paxton


Peace, peace will, peace will come and let it begin with me.

We, we need, we need peace, and let it begin with me.

Oh my own life is all I can hope to control.
Oh let my life be lived for the good, the good of us all.

And let it bring peace, sweet peace, peace will come and let it begin with me.

De colores, de colores se visten los campos en la primavera,

De colores, de colores es el arco iris que vemos lucir,

Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores me gustan ami,

Y por eso los grandes amores de muchos colores me gustan ami!
