NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK
Mike Bryden 2018

Joni is a jumpy girl who loves her skipping rope
She skips in summer, spring and fall and even in her winter coat
One day she lost her favourite toy, thought she’d never get it back
But a rope is not as hard to find as a needle in a haystack

CHORUS
You gotta stop, take a breath
Close your eyes, put your hands on your thighs
Get ready to take the next step
Now you look, look real close
With your eyes open wide, look in and outside
Check the place you go to the most
Then you think, think real hard
Where was I last, who can I ask
Did I remember to check the backyard
Now take a break, lets change gears
Do something fun, jump skip and run
And suddenly guess what appears?

The skipping rope was in the bath tub!

Owen is a lanky lad who collects some shiny stones
His favourite is a purple one with blue and yellow tones
One day he lost that tiny rock from a hole in his backpack
But a purple rock stands out much more than a needle in a haystack

CHORUS
You gotta stop, take a breath
Close your eyes, put your hands on your thighs
Get ready to take the next step
Now you look, look real close
With your eyes open wide, look in and outside
Check the place you go to the most
Then you think, think real hard
Where was I last, who can I ask
Did I remember to check the backyard
Now take a break, lets change gears
Do something fun, jump skip and run
And suddenly guess what appears?

The rock was in his left boot!

Sally is a cockatoo with a lovely little bell
She rings it every single day as far I can tell

But one day she couldn’t find her bell to give it it’s daily whack
But a bell is easier to find than a needle in a haystack

OUT CHORUS
So let’s look in, let’s look out, let’s look up and around
We may find what we’ve lost will turn up and be found
Let’s look in, let’s look out
Let’s look down, let’s look up
We may find what we’ve lost will turn up

So let’s look in, let’s look out, let’s look up and around
We may find what we’ve lost will turn up and be found
Let’s look in, let’s look out
Let’s look down, let’s look up
We may find what we’ve lost will turn up
