Yesterday I was invited to sing at Jennie Moore Elementary and James B. Edwards in Charleston.  I just LOVE being around kids - especially this time of year!  (I think I’m lucky I was there yesterday instead of Friday!!!)

This mural with mirrors welcomes visitors at James B. Edwards.  The writing says, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, I see a leader in us all!”  Now, that’s what I call a positive message!  I noticed many of the children were wearing red ribbons that said “Just Say No.”  In fact, someone sent an email yesterday asking for a “Just Say No” rap.  I didn’t have one, but I thought it would be a good idea to write one, so here it is.  You can sing it to “Cadence” and snap, clap, or make your hands like rappers.

Just Say NO!  (Children repeat each verse.)
Just say NO!
Just say NO!
Just say NO!
Say NO to drugs!

Winners, winners
They are cool.
Drugs are bad
They learn in school.

Losers, losers,
Don’t you know?
Drugs are NOT
The way to go.

Drugs are bad.
They’ll make you sick.
Just say NO!
That’s the trick.

Eat good food
And exercise.
Be drug free
It’s very wise!
