The Song for LYF

A children's song for all ages
Daniel Sklar

Have a learn, laugh, love, live life.
Have a learn, laugh, love, live life.
That’s an L-R-N and an L-A-F
And an L-U-V and an L-I-V
That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life.
That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life.

When I L-R-N that is when I grow
When I learn the things that I ought to know,
Like the right from wrong and the good from bad,
And I gain the skills that I never had.

That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life. (That’s right!)
That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life.

When I L-A-F I am full of glee
When I play and laugh and I feel carefree
Little things in life I appreciate
Finding joy in all that makes life so great.

That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life. (Ha-ha!)
That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life.

When I L-U-V that’s when I take care
When I do the things to help my welfare
I believe in me and what I can do
Keep a healthy mind and a body, too.

That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life. (Oh yes!)
That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life.

When I L-I-V that’s when I am me
When I do my best, be all I can be
Face the challenges when put to the test
Make the most of life, do it all with zest.

That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life. (Hooray!)
That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life.

But that’s only half of what I can be
For there’s more than just thinking inwardly
I must help others each and every day
Help them learn, laugh, love, live in every way.

So I’ll…L-R-N to help others grow
I will teach them all everything I know.
I will L-A-F so they find life’s joys
Turning frowns to smiles in all girls and boys.
I will L-U-V, show that people care
I will lend my hand, be kind everywhere
And I’ll L-I-V, help them do their best
And inspire all to live life so blessed
If we all do this what a world we’d see
Peace for you and me for eternity.

That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life.
That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life.
That’s a learn, laugh, love, live life! (for life!)
