Love That Brother
by Tommy

Love that brother
more than a million dollars.
I said I love that brother
more than a million dollars.
Love to see him everyday,
Love to play the way he play.

He play like a good boy,
Smile like a shining star.
I said he play like a good boy,
Smile like a shining star.
Smile when he's excited,
When he's bored he smiles again.

I like to tickle him,
Like to hold him upside down.
I said I like to tickle him,
Like to hold him upside down.
You can go home now,
I'll see you in a while.
Love My Brother
by Matthew

Love my brother
like a dog loves the sun.
I said I love my brother
like a dog loves the sun.
Love to tell him on the swing,
"Ya dizzy yet?"

He's smart like his dad,
Athletic like his Uncle Dan.
I said he's smart like his dad,
Athletic like his Uncle Dan.
When math is a stumble
he counts 1,2,3.

My mom likes to give him a hug,
like to feed him hot cookies.
I said my mom likes to give him hugs,
like to feed him hot cookies.
She can have him now,
I'll get 'em sometime around.

We have years together
like earth and moon.
Some good times and bad times.
When I'm dead he'll be thinking,
good times.
Love That Rainbow
by Gabby

Love that rainbow,
Like the clouds love the sky.
I said I love that rainbow,
Like the clouds love the sky.
Love the morning dew combining
with the sky
To make my morning rainbow.

It stays in the morning,
Disappears in the night.
I said it stays in the morning,
And disappears in the night.
So I cherish each moment
I see it in the sky.
Love That Football
by Michael

Love to play football
Just like my brother.
I said I love to play football
Just like my brother.
I love to tackle the other players
and help to win the game.

I love to run the ball
Love to hold it in my hands.
I said I love to run with the ball
Love to hold it in my hands.
It feels soft and squishy,
Makes me feel happy.
Ode To Lasagna
by Matt-2

Love that lasagna,
Cheese in the middle.
I said I love that lasagna,
Cheese in the middle.
Love to eat it in the morning,
Love to eat it,
Yum, yum, yum.

It's got cheese like pizza,
Meat like burgers.
I say it's got cheese like pizza,
And meat like burgers.
We can eat it when we happy,
We can eat it when we sad.

I love to add cheese,
Like to add that cheese.
I say I love to add cheese,
Like to add that cheese.
I can eat it when I want to,
I'll eat it when I want.

I got a lot of lasagna,
Eat it before it's gone.
I say I got a lot of lasagna,
Eat it before it's gone.
It will be a long meal,
And a good meal before it's gone.
Love That Horse
by Haley

Love that horse
Like a mother loves her baby.
I said I love that horse
Just like a mother loves her baby.
Love so sweet that it fills my heart
With joy and happiness that springs up my spine.

That horse neighs like her mother
And gallops like her father.
I said that horse neighs like her mother
And gallops like her father.
That horse was raised wild,
Born in the mountains.

We found each other lost,
And decided to live together.
I said we found each other lost,
And decided to live together.
Finding trails and exploring them
As if we were born for the job.

That horse, her coat so smooth,
Her love so sweet.
I said he coat is so smooth
And her love is so sweet.
She'll be a fine mother in a week or so,
That horse is the one, the one for me.
Love That Life
by Elise

I love my life
like a man loves his dog.
I said I love my life
like a man loves his dog.
Like to pray everynight
love to pray,
"Thank you, God."

My life is a strawberry,
Sometimes good, sometimes bad.
I said my life is a strawberry,
Sometimes good, sometimes bad.
It's good when I'm happy,
Good when I'm mad.

My God loves to hold me,
hold me tight in His hands.
I said my God loves to hold me,
hold me tight in His hands.
He gives me a fine life.
Not perfect, but fine.

My life has just started
ten years ago.
I said my life just started
ten years ago.
I have a long, good life ahead
It's gonna be fun before I'm dead.
Love That Song
by Rachel

Love that song
like a champion loves to win.
I said I love that song
like a champion loves to win.
Love to sing it in the shower.
Love to sing it like:
"You're hot then you're cold."

Has fast beat like some songs,
and catchy like most.
I said it has a fast beat,
and it's catchy like most.
I sing it in the evening,
and sing it in the morn.

Friends love to dance to it
and sing it when they can.
I said friends love to dance to it
and sing it when they can.
They can sing it forever,
but it will never turn out bad.

It has a long chorus to sing
before you run out of breath.
I said it has a long chorus to sing
before you have no breath.
It takes a long time
for it to get out of your head.
Love That Run
by Eric

Love that run
like a cheetah loves to sprint.
I said I love that run
like a cheetah loves to sprint.
Makes my muscles tight and my lungs refreshed.
I love to have my lungs
refreshed.

It's like nature filling you inside,
like wind opening you up to nature.
I said it's like nature filling you inside,
and like the wind opening you up to nature.
Run when I'm happy,
Run when I'm sad.

This nature loves to hold me,
likes to make me really glide.
I said this nature loves to hold me,
and likes to make me really glide.
Love That Sis
by Sadie

Love that sis
like a cloud loves the sky.
I said I love that sis
like a cloud loves the sky.
I love to play with her day and night.
I love to say,
"Hey Sis, let's play!"

Nothing can separate us
as long as we live.
I said nothing can separate us
as long as we live.
Even though I don't live with her
she can still be here.

She comes over on weekends
and we fall asleep really late.
I said she comes over on weekends
and we fall asleep really late.
Then we wake up so tired.
I stay downstairs and watch cartoons while she
goes upstairs to wash her face.

When it's afternoon
we go and play.
I said when it's afternoon
we go and we play.
We get sweets from the store
and we it eat all before we get home.
