Как на Петино рожденье Испекли мы каравай. Вот такой вышины, Вот такой нижины, Вот такой ужины, Вот такой ширины. Каравай, каравай, Кого любишь (хочешь) выбирай.

I see the moon and the moon sees me, Sharing its light for me to see. I see the sun and its great big shine. We know its force is as strong as mine. I see the stars shining in the night. Miles away, and still so bright.

What's the largest thing, you can think of? Is it the sun or the moon? What's the farthest thing, you can think of? Is it that tiny star in the sky? Oh, my, my... Do you ever ask what it's made of? Is it the same as me and you? Well I guess that's true. Now think of something, right in front of you. Is it a tree or a cat? Something that you can feel and touch, that's part of your world. Now try to sense what it's made of... It's the same as you and I. Don't you want to know why? What's the smallest thing, you can think of? Is it a single drop of rain? What's the closest thing, you can think of? Is it the beating of your heart? The closer we go, the more we start to see... Are the same building blocks that make up you and me. The sun, the moon, the stars, the sky. The tree, the cat, your ears, your eyes... The rain, your pulse that makes you and I.

Find a stout house somewhere, Move in and be happy, it’s not hard to do. Just slowly and surely and one day my son, You’ll be a family many too, I spend my last dime at the dances, I took all my and told them as one, And now when they tell me, I failed as a tailor, my smile full of failure, At least I had fun! Find a stout house somewhere, Move in and be happy, it’s not hard to do. Just slowly and surely and one day my son, You’ll be a family many too, I met my own wife in the forest, of chorus, She looked so peculiar all covered with mud. We danced on the belfry, kept beans on the shelf And sang on the rooftop of all of our love. Chorus, The babies they came in the winter, and then in the autumn, and then in the spring. They warbled and wiggled, the gargled and giggled, They didn’t stop shrieking until they could sing. Chorus.

Look around and see who's there, With smiling faces to give you care. The ones who love you, the ones you need. Everyone's got family. By everyone, I mean everyone. Every person, every dog, every bird, every fish, every bumblebee, every elephant. Everybody has somebody to take care of and someone to take care of them. Every single creature and critter needs a lot of help in life and that's why there are so many different families out there. [Chorus] What does a dog family look like? Can everyone bark like a dog? Can everyone howl like a dog? [Chorus] How about fish? Have you ever seen a picture of a school of fish? Can everyone swim like a fish? What about birds? Have you ever seen a flock of birds fly south for the winter? Can everyone make their favorite bird noise? Birds take such great care of each other too. [Chorus] What about a bumblebee? Can everyone buzz like a bumblebee? Bumblebees live in hives together and they all work together to take care of each other. Elephants have families too. Elephant families travel together in herds. Elephants take such great care of each other too. [Chorus]

Little eyes and little ears, Seeing joy and seeing fears. Little ears and little eyes. Seeing truths and seeing lies. [Chorus] Teach them what you know. Give them room to grow. Take it nice and slow. This is their picture show. Trusted to you from the start. They come complete with open heart. So so clean and clear and bright. It's your fate to get it right. [Chorus] Little hands and little feet. Walking down that wander street. Little feet and little hands, Making prints upon the sands (of time). [Chorus] Little hearts and little minds. Making strides with little finds. Little minds and little hearts. Little steps and little starts. [Chorus]
