How

Long have

You held your

Breath? Have you been

Told that you can stop.

You’ve inhaled long enough.

You are allowed to exhale,

Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale,

How does it feel to release your breath?

How does it feel to be liberated?

Twist and braid,

Twist and braid.

Look at your voluminous hair!

Twist and braid,

Twist and braid.

Hmm, let’s moisturise your scalp.

Twist and braid,

Twist and braid.

Let’s try a new style today.

Twist and braid,

Twist and braid.

Did you hear about who’s entered a relationship?

Twist and braid,

Twist and braid.

Are you going to the worship gathering this week?

Twist and braid,

Twist and braid.

I need some light books to read.

Twist and braid,

Twist and braid.

Thank you for making me feel like a queen

Give
Her some
Love-it is
Possible to
Treat her with respect,
Dignity, and goodness
Give her grace to grow and bloom
Give her love to encourage her
Give her faith to help her flourish, and
Give her hope that she can do anything.

Caterpillars knows what they should feed on,

Caterpillars create exteriors to protect themselves,

Caterpillars are willing to change for something more,

Butterflies embrace the freedom of their wings,

Butterflies take in the goodness that nectar provides,

Butterflies adorn themselves with their patterns,

Oh, isn’t it beautiful to grow?

Under the sun,
The bunnies run out and play.
Under the moon,
The bunnies decide to rest for the day.
Under the stars,
The bunnies sleep to the songs of the night.
It is also under the stars,
That the bunnies stay together cosy and tight

Let’s get around the piano and sing.

Let’s sing the melodies of our cultures

Let’s play in duets, trios, and quartets

Let’s pursue excellence with courage and unity

Let’s unite as we face changes to our sounds

Let’s create wonderful things together this season

Let’s celebrate our journey as a family.
