    Lend Me Your Glasses

    LEND ME YOUR GLASSES


    EVERYBODY SEES
    THE WORLD THROUGH THEIR OWN LENS
    EVERYBODY HAS
    THEIR OWN CHALLENGES AND FRIENDS

    LEND ME YOUR GLASSES
    I'LL GIVE MINE TO YOU
    LETS SHARE OUR GLASSES
    YELLOW GREEN AND BLUE

    TALK TO ME
    ABOUT WHAT YOU SEE
    TALK TO ME
    LETS SHARE OUR HISTORY

    WE’LL TRY TO SEE
    ALL THE POINTS OF VIEW
    BEFORE WE CHOOSE
    WHAT WE WANT TO DO

    EVERYBODY SEES
    THE WORLD THROUGH THEIR OWN LENS
    EVERYBODY HAS
    THEIR OWN CHALLENGES AND FRIENDS

    LEND ME YOUR GLASSES
    I'LL GIVE MINE TO YOU
    LETS SHARE OUR GLASSES
    YELLOW GREEN AND BLUE

    HISTORY HAS HAPPENED
    AND WE CAN'T GO BACK
    BUT WE CAN  LEARN
    FROM THE PAST

    WHO TELLS THE STORY?
    WHO MAKES THE CHOICE?
    EVERYONE
    SHOULD HAVE A VOICE!

    (quietly)
    LEND ME YOUR GLASSES
    HELP ME LEARN WHAT YOU SEE
    LEND ME YOUR GLASSES
    LET’S SEE WHAT THE WORLD CAN BE

    (louder)
    LEND ME YOUR GLASSES
    HELP ME LEARN WHAT YOU SEE
    LEND ME YOUR GLASSES
    LETS SEE WHAT THE WORLD CAN BE

    (teacher)
    THANK YOU FOR SHARING
    YOUR TIME WITH US
    DONT FORGET YOUR GLASSES
    LETS GET BACK ON THE BUS

    LETS SHARE OUR GLASSES
    WE’LL CLEAN THE LENS
    LETS SHARE OUR GLASSES
    SO WE CAN BE FRIENDS

    EVERYBODY SEES
    THE WORLD IN THEIR OWN WAY
    SO MANY WAYS TO BE
    LETS SHARE OUR GLASSES RIGHT AWAY


NOTES
Since 2012, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Piti Theatre Co., a touring troupe based in Shelburne, MA. Together we've written six "plays with songs" for performance in theaters, schools, festivals, libraries, etc. (we do 3-4 school residencies a year). These "mini-musicals" are each about 45 minutes long and deal with subjects like: honey bees and colony collapse disorder; rocks and minerals; the study of magnets; the history of Colrain, MA; and the effects on …

Story

"The Joyful Bee" is from "To Bee or Not to Bee", a show we do about Colony Collapse Disorder in honey bee hives. 

Lyrics

The Joyful Bee
       
I’m a bee, I’m a bee, I’m a  honey bee
I love the flowers and the flowers love me
I’m fuzzy and buzzy, its the best way to be
I’m a bee, I’m a bee, I’m a honey bee

When I get to a flower, well I feel the power
I drink up the nectar and I get real full
I fly to the hive and I feel so alive
I drop off the nectar and I go get some more

I’m a bee, I’m a bee, I’m a  honey bee
I love the flowers and the flowers love me
I’m fuzzy and buzzy, its the best way to be
I’m a bee, I’m a bee, I’m a honey bee

Out in the meadow where the grass is green
The blossoms blossom and the air is clean
Sweetest nectar that I ever seen
I’m gonna bring it home to my honey Queen

I’m a bee, I’m a bee, I’m a  honey bee
I love the flowers and the flowers love me
I’m fuzzy and buzzy, its the best way to be
I’m a bee, I’m a bee, I’m a honey bee
