1. What would you do?

 

What would you do if you woke up one morning

And found that everybody knew your name?

If you were a famous movie star, would you be very different?

Or would you try to stay the same?

Would you stay the same or would you change?

And would you try to change the world?

When your friends were near, would you say hello?

Or would your old friends disappear?

What would you say if people looked up to you?

And they wanted you to tell them what to do?

Would you tell them if you didn’t know the answers?

Would you be brave enough to tell them ‘I don’t know’?

I don’t know

If you had a million dollars, would you give it all away?

Would you think about tomorrow or spend it all today?

If you were rich, do you think you’d be really happy?

What would you do if somebody told you

That you could have anything at all?

Would you think about the world and help other people?

Or would you build a house and live like a king behind its walls?

  1. Hi Ken, hi Dede,
    Absolutely love your song! What important messages conveyed in such simplicity. Genius!
    And more topical than ever in today’s world. Imagine if primary schools taught this, using your material throughout Britain and throughout the world. Starting with the most privileged public schools!!!
    Thanks for sharing your work with us all!

    The only grammatical structures my students never forget are the ones they sing.
