CO OPERATION

 ©2017 Lisa Brockwell

(co-operation, compassion, respect, tolerance, trust)

 

Playing in the playground, swimming in a pool

Playing on a sports field or working in school

Anywhere there’s a group, we cannot escape

We must work together and co-operate

Or there’ll be much chaos, nothing will get done

Respect for you, respect for me, leads to so much fun!

 

Chorus:

Co-operation, working together

Co-operation, sharing and caring

It’s about you and it’s about me

How we live together, one big family!

Give and take, give and take

Balance for our lives

It all works together

Like our ears and nose and eyes!

 

Driving on the road, service in a church

Sitting in a cinema or mum and dad at work

Anywhere there’s a group, we cannot escape

We must work together and co-operate

Or there’ll be much chaos, nothing will get done

Respect for you, respect for me, leads to so much fun!

 

Surfing at a beach, shopping at a mall,

Catching public transport or sitting in a hall

Anywhere there’s a group we cannot escape

We must work together and co-operate

Or there’ll be much chaos, nothing will get done

Respect for you, respect for me, leads to so much fun!
