Little Garden Song Lyrics

I put a little seed of hope in the ground…
And grew a little love today…
And if everyone I knew went and planted just one too,
We could grow a better future – what do you say?

What we’ll grow…
What we’ll grow…
Can you imagine what we’ll grow?
We’re gonna plant hope here and there,
We’re gonna plant it everywhere, oh!
Can you imagine what we’ll grow!

What we’ll grow…
What we’ll grow…
Can you imagine what we’ll grow?
More than enough for us to share,
No more hunger anywhere…
Can you imagine what we’ll grow?

Who knocked you up this morning ?

[great big story]

Imagine life without alarm clocks. Workdays would start at noon, breakfast would be brunch, and no one would make it to class before the first bell. From the early 1800s through the 1960s, factory workers didn’t have much of a choice. To get to work on time, they relied on “knocker-uppers,” aka, human alarm clocks. Using long bamboo sticks, or peashooters, Britain’s knocker-uppers would stroll down the streets rapping at windows to help their patrons kick-start their days.

• They were called knocker-ups
• We’re travelling back in time
• The early 1800s
• A paid job

A tongue-twister :

We had a knocker-up, and our knocker-up had a knocker-up

And our knocker-up’s knocker-up didn’t knock our knocker up

So our knocker-up didn’t knock us up

‘Cos he’s not up.
