We are all so small, Like little grains of sand Like blueberries in my hand We are all so small , Like needles on the pine Like all the honeysuckles on the vine And you’re as good as me De de de de de like the flower’s no better than the tree And I’m as good as you Do do do do do like pink’s no better than blue And we can share our dreams And like the earth, sky and water We can work as a team. And I’m no better than any one Just like a garden full of vegetables, we all need the sun And from the view way up higher than all We’re all small Let’s agree We look so small But Like the big, beautiful stars up above We’re just little little little little sparks of light and love And we’re as little as ants that are doing their dance And we’re as little as bugs, but we give big hugs And we’re as little as frogs in the ponds And we’re as little as little fairy magic wands And you’re as good as me De de de de de Like the flower’s no better than the tree And I’m as good as you Do do do do do Like pink is no better than blue That's right And we can share our dreams And like the earth, sky and water We can work as a team And I’m no better than any one Just like a garden full of vegetables, they all need the sun And from the view way up higher than us all We’re all small, We’re already just so small And like the big, beautiful stars up above Up above We’re just little little little little sparks of light and love And when I think about the whole universe I think about the little dot thats me And that means you are little too And so we're all little together And together we’re connected to the great big mystery And then we all are little together All equal littles All equal littles So lets protect our own small hearts and Not participate in any silly fighting Lets just choose to not take part Cause someone will just end up crying And we are all a special little part of this universal symphony Sometimes quiet, sometimes loud, and though we’re small we still can have epiphanies It’s good to shrink our need to prove our place We’re here in peace, we can rest in safe space And it’s good to grow our hearts so full and big To help us sing a song and dance a jig De de de de de Do do do do do Yeah you’re as good as me De de de de de Like the flower is just as good as that tree And I’m as good as you Do do do do do Like pink is just as good as blue And I’m no better than any one Just like a garden full of vegetables, we all need the sun Need the sun Some choose to imitate their friends when they are choosing bad But you can be a better friend by being being being being good instead And we’re as small as all the hairs on our toes And we all have a mouth and eyes and a nose And we’re as small as all the freckles on our skin We all create and smile and also we all win And you’re as good as me. De de de de de Like the flower’s no better than the tree And I’m as good as you Do do do do do Like pink is just as good as blue Blue blue blue blue And we can share our dreams And like the earth, sky and water We can work as a team. And we're no better than any one We're like a garden full of vegetables, we all need the sun Sun And from the view way up higher than all We’re all small. We agree we look so small And Like that big, beautiful star up above We’re just a little little little little spark of light and love We’re just a little little little little sparks of light and love We’re all little little little little sparks of light and love

about

"Scribbles Soup" is a combination of simple sounds and orchestrated productions. We follow Scribbles and his friends through a musical adventure with fun storytelling where we learn about honoring our elders, connecting to the earth, how to make soup, the importance of love, and some simple lessons in musicality and language.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LDGBNei2Pc

Aviva Vuvuzela, the composer, has been writing award winning songs and performing stories since she was a small child. A graduate from Tufts University with a BA in Child Studies, she and her band, Aviva and the Flying Penguins, have included countless amounts of children’s shows on their many tours around the U.S. She has been working with children for over twenty-five years, teaching and leading them in music, drama and dance. Aviva and the children would always create their own stories and magical places. She’s thrilled to put these imaginary lands into an actual musical story. The songs on this album can be enjoyed by the whole family. She is so excited to publish her very first children's book, “Scribbles Soup”, based on this recording and featuring her original paintings. Scribbles, the star of this story, has joined her on her adventures for at least four years. He and his many friends have had their own songs and stories to share on their Youtube Channel: Star Seed Family. Enjoy their KEY OF YOU preview here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJtVs4JlQ_Y
