Stick My Neck Out

From the album Grow It at Home Buy Now

STICK MY NECK OUT

Amy, the giraffe stuck her neck up so high

She saw hungry lions hiding in a bush nearby

But Amy didn’t tell her friends, she turned and ran away

Now she feels awful, cause she acted that way,

 

So Amy made a promise to speak up for little guys

Even if its scary for, someone her size

So when Amy spots a carnivore, she does her thing

She sticks her neck out, and starts to sing!

 

Gotta stick my neck out!  Before its too late!

Gotta stick my neck out!  Co-co, co-communicate!

Gotta stick my neck out!  When my friends are in a bind

Gotta stick my neck out!  And say what's on my mind!

(repeat)

 

Were all animals, and we all need some help

We can sing out for the little ones who cant sing out for

     themselves!

So instead of eating others, lets share this world with them

Stick your neck out just like me!  Be a vegetarian!

 

Gotta stick my neck out!  To help a little friend

Gotta stick my neck out!  Be a vegetarian!

If I’m a carnivore today,  Well, tomorrow that might end!

Gotta stick my neck out!  If I’m gonna help a friend!

 

Now every kid knows when something doesnt feel right

We’ve been taught to keep our mouth shut and tkeep out of

     sight

Sure, its scary to speak up, when youre the only one

But if we all sing together, we can get something done!

 

Gotta stick my neck out!  When something feels wrong

Gotta stick my neck out!  Gotta raise my voice in song!

Gotta stick my neck out!  Not hang it in a bend

Gotta stick my neck out!  Get the violence to end

 

Gotta stick my neck out!  Theres injustice in the land.

Gotta stick my neck out!  Its time to take a stand!

Gotta stick my neck out!  Not all crunched up and curled

Gotta stick my neck out!  If were gonna save the world!

 

If we stick our necks out all together, then we can save the

     world!
