Story

The 5th grade kids said they wanted to write a song about the Olympics and Sept 11th. Tall order but we did it. This is dedicated to the hero in all of us.

Lyrics

When I was little the world seemed so big                       

And so were my dreams of what I would become           

An Olympian

Caught in the perfect moment                       

A fireman saving lives                                                           

What would it be like

To stand in their shoes                       

To be a hero           

 

Chorus                                               

When I Grow Up

I want to be

What it is I’m meant to be

I’m gonna write my own story

When I grow up

I want to be

Me

 

Those childhood dreams are harder than they seem            

We wake to face our strengths and weaknesses               

Make mistakes

Fall down and come back stronger

Lean on those we love

For inspiration

But only I can choose

The road to follow

 

Chorus Repeat

 

Bridge

When push comes to shove, I will do my part

A hero is someone who becomes the best of who they are
