LYRICS

Wednesday, January 30, 2019

Below are the lyrics for my children's fable "Trail of Kind' , which is going to feature on my debut children's album 'Bounce!'. It's a captivating story about an unkind little unicorn who learns a few lessons from Rain and Thunder whenever she is unkind or impolite!  Huge thanks to the beautiful singers who got involved with this important project and brought these lyrics to life!!

It is more important than ever that we all appreciate kindness, and that children and young adults understand the value of kindness from a young age, because kindness and empathy help us to relate to other people and have more positive relationships with friends and family.  But it can actually make you healthier, as doing nice things for others boosts your serotonin.  So be kind y'all because:

'kindness makes love, love changes the world'

I hope you love it!!!

 

TRAIL OF KIND

Verse 1

This is a story ‘bout a Little Unicorn.

Who’d lived in a magical forest from the day she was born.

Though her glossy golden mane felt like the smoothest softest silk

She loved to gossip way too much and spill others’ milk! 

She gave out icy stares like candy in a shop,

Was exclusive with her friends, and she talked non-stop!

 

Poor little unicorn she didn’t know

If you try to be kind, you’ll shine wherever you go,

Cos kindness makes love, love changes the world

So leave a trail of kind behind in actions and words.

 

Verse 2

Her unkind behaviour made Rain and Thunder so forlorn

That they decided to teach a lesson to the Little Unicorn.

“When Little Unicorn rains on someone’s happiness,”

Rain said, ‘I will give her a shower, make her marvellous mane a mess!”

“And when she has a tantrum or is rude and impolite

I will play my drums,” said Thunder, “but I’ll keep out of sight!”

 

Poor little unicorn she didn’t know

If you try to be kind, you’ll shine wherever you go,

Cos kindness makes love, love changes the world

So leave a trail of kind behind in actions and words

 

Verse 3

But Little Unicorn still wasn’t kind or warm,

And she couldn’t understand the constant wet weather storm!

Then one day she saw a trail of flowers and singing birds

Behind Red Dragon whenever she said kind words.

The Sun always shone above Red Dragon’s head

It never rained at all, flowers smiled and waved instead!

 

Poor little unicorn was starting to learn,

You’ve gotta try to be kind, do good turns, show concern,

Cos kindness makes love, love changes the world

So leave a trail of kind behind in actions and words

 

So now children, you all know,

If you try to be kind, you’ll shine wherever you go,

Cos kindness makes love, love changes the world

So always leave a trail of kind behind in actions and words.
