about

I wrote the ukulele part for this song in the sandbox while supervising the playground. We always have a ukulele on the playground! After playing the tune for a few days, I remembered something a preschooler named Lucas said to me years ago. "Danny, I fell down like a tear." I thought, well, why not get up like a smile! A dance party in the sand ensued soon after.

lyrics

Everybody get up like a smile
Or you could fall down like a frown.
But there's no time to be sad
It's time for dancing around!

So clap your hands
Get Clappy
Tap your toes
Toe Tappy
It's time to dance
Dance Happy
It's time for dancing around!

You could get small like a bug.
Or make your body big like a lion.
Flap your wings like a bird
And pretty soon you'll feel like flying

So clap your hands
Get Clappy
Tap your toes
Toe Tappy
It's time to dance
Dance Happy
It's time for dancing around!
