The Gollywhopper Games Song
Lyrics by Suzy Red, To the Tune of The National Emblem March
The Gollywhopper Games!
They're here! They're here!
The crazy fun has just begun!
The Gollywhopper Games
Are open now.
They're open now for everyone!
Bring along your mom or dad!
Everybody wins! You can't be sad!
Gather in the stadium for all the food and fun!
Repeat.

One girl singing as she acts it out:
I can't wait to get my place … There's such a big crowd!
Things will get loud!
I can see!
I will get a card
And pray for a low number
For my entry! Gotta be!
Here I am!
I need a little yellow card, please!
Hope you've got one
That lets me play today!
If I can win, I'll get to go
To college, have some fun!
Have a life!

One boy (Gil) singing as he acts it out:
I can't wait to get my place … There's such a big crowd!
Things will get loud!
I can see!
I will get a card
And pray for a low number
For my entry!
Please, God, please!
There's the man that's passing Out the yellow cards, now!
Hope he's got one
That lets me play today!
If I can win, we'll get to move!
Adios to Orchard Heights!
I am gone!

For the last section, the class marches around the audience like the Olympic participants before the Olympic Games, waving, clapping, laughing, pointing, skipping, turning, celebrating.
