I wake up each new day

I wake up each new day just like I always did and despite how I look on the outside I still feel like a kid

But I know so much more than I knew when I was young so I’ll share a few bits of wisdom from the tip of my tongue 

I get up in the morning and I drink lemon water and I do meditation and yoga just like I ought to

I breathe deep in and out. In and out through my nose and I stretch all my body from my head to my toes

Before anything else, anything at all is done, I’m sitting there meditating looking at the sun 

Coz the sun is rising each and every day, but I feel like a kid despite hair that’s grey 

Yeah I wake up each day and I feel like a kid, I wake up each day just like I always did

I jump out of bed and I give a shout, “Yippee Hooray A new day is about “

I run outside and I start to play. Oh I’m so happy another new day

I can’t wait to dance, draw a picture or two. I love meeting new people. I’ll hopefully see you 

Yeah I jump out of bed at the start of the day and I scream and shout hip hip hip hooray

It’s a new day a new dawn, the sun is a rising and the cows in the paddock are all smiling

The kangaroos jump past and they spring through the day,  the kookaburras scream yippee I ayyyy

Yeah I wake up each morning just like I always did and despite my middle age I still feel like a kid

Yeah I’m running about and being so happy coz I just  couldn’t imagine living life feeling crappy

A friendly hello and a wave in the street. There are many interesting people to meet

I think I’ll go and have coffee in town, Cheer someone up if they’re wearing a frown

Yeah I Jump out of bed just like I always did , I’m 50,000 years old but I feel like a kid

The sun will go down at the end of the day but I feel like a kid despite hair that’s grey

I like running round and giving a shout and making people happy when I’m out and about

Coz life’s so much more fun than just moanin’ and groanin’,

You can spend time with friends and family or just play on your own

Being happy and carefree just like a kid. Jump out of bed every day just like you always did

Coz life’s too short to be angry and mad and fearful, unhappy and really really sad

So I live my life happy and I live my life well

 I can’t for the life of me think why I’d like to make life hell

So I jump out of bed just like I always did

I’m 50,000 years old but I still feel like a kid

I jump out of bed and I go for a run

Excited about my birthday when I’m gonna be fifty thousand and one

I’ll go to be at the end of the day all tuckered out with not much to say

But in the morning I’ll jump out of bed like I always did

With joy and gratitude just like a kid

And I’ll enjoy life with a smile not a frown

Coz I can’t think of a reason to live life feeling down

Oh there’s so much I’m grateful for every day

Oh there’s fresh air, fresh water, friends family, what more can I say?
