Everybody Counts
by Feldiken

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Calling to you, one by one,
40 people, won’t you come?
3 hours of swim and fun,
Fourth of July in the sun.

Can you help me set it up?
80 hands should be enough,
Choose it, buy it, all that stuff,
Make sure to tell everyone.

13 children, 8 musicians, 19 parents and then 6 more neighbors, party favors, 50 plates of food for our friends, 3 old doggies, 2 new froggies, kitties, turtles and bugs, 100 handshakes, 0 large apes and about 50 hugs.

Nobody’s left out!
Everybody counts!

Swimming pool in and out,
Band is playing twist and shout,
Youngers, parents breaking out
Into wild dancing.

Children singing stole the show,
Fireworks in endless rows,
15 roman candles,
Suddenly they explode!


Nobody’s left out!
Everybody counts!

Everybody, everybody, everybody counts! (repeat)
