This song begins our journey. It’s a reminder that our stories connect us to one another all across the world, and we can go wherever our curiosity leads us through telling and listening to those stories. It opens with the sounds of son jarocho, a folk music tradition from Mexico that I love dearly and dream of learning more one day. Our ‘brilliant new idea’ is to go on this journey through music and song together. We invite you to join us and sing along!

When I was younger i was wise

When i was younger i would rise to hear those morning lullabies


Now I am older I have time

Now i am older i have time to sing those songs of days gone by

Ooh- ooh - ooh... (x2)

I got this brilliant new idea

And it could take us to a world so carefree 

Let us wander far and near

And sing those songs and stories

Ooh- ooh- ooh... (x2)

Songs and stories fill the air

Songs and stories we all share on our journey of new ideas

Ooh- ooh - ooh... (x3)
