Karen Kirkland is a professional musician and teacher with over 30 years experience in music education.” Our world” is a humorous, action song about the four main habitats of our world, jungle, mountains, desert, and ocean. The song takes us to each habitat to meet an animal. Actions and sound effects make up the verses. Children love action songs. The catchy melody and repetition make this an easy song to learn. This song is suitable for KS1 and KS2 and is a perfect song to introduce a project on ‘our world’. There is a full backing track available of this song, with or without vocals, on request. This song is part of a series of songs written for a project called “Shropshire sings” involving over 2000 KS1/2 children in Shropshire, and will be premiered at this event in July by Shropshire music service.

Our world
Our world, our world. Lots of things to see.
Our world, our world. Come explore with me,

To the jungle off we go to see what we can see.
Swinging with a chimpanzee round and round in every tree.
Oow oow oow ee ee ee.
Come explore with me.

To the mountains off we go to see what we can see
Climbing with a mountain goat. Don’t forget to take your coat.
Baa, baa, baa, nay,nay,nay, oow, oow, oow, ee, ee, ee.
Come explore with me.

To the desert off we go to see what we can see.
Shaking like a rattlesnake. Keep the beat 1,2,3.
Rattle, rattle, shake, shake, shake.
Baa, baa, baa, nay, nay nay, oow, oow, oow, ee, ee, ee.
Come explore with me.

To the ocean off we go, to see what we can see.
Swimming, like a big fat fish. Watch for sharks, please be quick.
Splash, splash splash, splosh, splosh, splosh.
Rattle, rattle, shake, shake, shake.
Baa, baa, baa, nay, nay, nay, oow, oow, oow, ee, ee, ee.
Come explore with me.
