It Takes All Sorts (CoG Children's Song)

Postby Mama Cass » Tue Nov 14, 2017 10:41 am

This song is one we teach to our young children. A number of years ago, it was adapted by a kin of our tribe for the 4th movie in the Land Before Time series, and now it's enjoyed by little ones everywhere. However, you don't have to be a child to take the message to heart. May we learn from the innocence of youth to accept others as they are, and to value the contributions of all sorts to our beautiful world.

"It Takes All Sorts"

It takes all sorts
to make a world
Short and tall sorts
large and small sorts
To fill this pretty planet
with love and laughter
To make it great to live in
tomorrow and the day after

It takes all types
without a doubt
Dumb and wise types
every size types
To do all the things
that need to be done
To make our life fun
Find our place in the sun

And the brightest way
the rightest way
According to reports is simply to
take all sorts

It takes all sorts
to make our day
Smart and slow sorts
High and low sorts
To make the world we live in
a place worth being
to try and make our future
a future really worth seeing

We need all types to make our way
Tried and true types
Me and you types
To create a world
that's truly worthwhile
That knows how to smile
how to do things in style

So the surest
and securest way
which everyone supports is simply to
Take all sorts
