Picture Day!Music by Randy Peterson/Words written with students at Carver Elementary School, Maplewood, MN
Itís picture day today for all the kids in school.
Weíre dressed in fancy clothes. Oh, we look really cool.
Our hair is all fixed up with lots of grease and gel.
We look like movie stars. Oh, we are lookiní swell!
Itís picture day, itís picture day. We want to look our best.
But will we look fantastic, or will we be a mess?
Before we take our pictures,to recess out we go.
when much to our surprise, the wind began to blow.
It blew like a tornado. It was swirling everywhere.
We said, "Itís picture day! Cover up your hair!"
But we were way too late. Our hair was just a mess.
It was pointing everywhere, and now weíre feeling stressed.
Alexís hair was in a knot. Stevenís stood straight up.
Meganís looked like a birdnest. Michelleís looked like a duck!
Will we be a mess?
We are so upset! Everybodyís gonna laugh.
We sit down for our pictures, and then we see the flash.
The pictures get sent off to a factory
Where they all get made into a book that everyone will see!
But youíll never guess what happened the day our pictures came.
Kids said, "Whatís that hairstyle? Does it have a name?"
They said we looked so cool, and they all liked our style!
Soon everyone had hair like us, and we just had to smile.
I guess we passed the test.
