There Must Be Another Way – Lyrics


7th Grade (RUSSIA)

Father, Father, where are we to go today?
Father, Papi’s sick, we’ll he see another day?
Child, Child, Quiet now go get the sleigh.
Child, times are hard and always there’s a price to pay.

Chorus:
Times get hard and always there is a price to pay.
But when it comes to people, there must be another way.
Child, Child, we’ll leave our Papi here to stay.
Child, he’s gotten old and there is not another way.
Father, Father, then also we must bring the sleigh.
Father, remember this, we’ll do the same to you someday.

Chorus:
Times get hard and always there is a price to pay.
But when it comes to people, there must be another way.
Papi, Papi, there isn’t any food today.
Papi, I love you so, have you something you’d like to say?
Child, child listen to what I have to say.
Plant this rye, the seeds will grow, our family will live this way.

Chorus:
Times get hard and always there is a price to pay.
But when it comes to people, there must be another way.
Times get hard and always there is a price to pay.
But when it comes to people, there must be another way.
Times get hard and always there is a price to pay.
But when it comes to people, there must be ano….ther……way!

Get Up and Put ‘em Pebbles in! – Lyrics


2nd Grade (ARIZONA)

Narrator: Tired and hungry with no place to go, Raven was thirsty and feeling quite low.
Raven: If only I found me a parcel of water, a drip or a drop or a sop, that would do.
Narrator: So Raven went searching and found her a jug. She saw in there water but couldn’t get to.
Raven: The waters too low, my beak aint that long. The water must rise…
Narrator: She knew what to do…
Raven: Get up and put ‘em pebbles in critters large and small! Working together we all win, the water rising tall. Get up and put /em pebbles in critters large and small. My word is my honor, we’ll all win!
Get up, get up, get up, put ‘em pebbles in.
Narrator: Nearby those critters were parched through and through. They wanted some water like Raven did too. Trusting her word, out they came just like that, and together they sang an arid desert Rap.
Critters: We got your back! We got your back! We’re here to help you, we got your back. We got your back! (We got your back!) We got your back! (We got your back!) We want some water too. We got, we got , we got….we got your back.
