Song #15: Magnetic North

Well, I finally missed a week!  I ended up taking a little break last week while I was out in Arcata, California visiting my folks and friends and the ocean.  Northern California is so beautiful!  And I love my little home town in April.  Everything was so green and blue and yellow.

In the spirit of Northerly things, this week’s song is ‘Magnetic North’ from Piti Theatre’s mini-musical “This is Your Rock”, a school residency inspired by the 50’s TV show “This is Your Life” and rocks, developed for third graders from R.K. Finn Ryan Road Elementary School, Florence MA with the support of the Xeric Foundation and the Ryan Road PTO. More about Piti Theatre residencies at ptco.org/residencies

Magnetic, magnetic North
Use me to find your way
Magnetic, magnetic North
If you’re lost, I’ll save the day

Now you’ve got your computers and your GPS
But don’t forget what’s still the best
You don’t need electricity or radiation
Just a compass pointing to your destination

Magnetic, magnetic North
Use me to find your way
Magnetic, magnetic North
If you’re lost, I’ll save the day

The compass points ‘cuz of the earth’s iron core
That’s a magnet too if you’re keepin’ score
But magnetic north is not the north pole
So don’t come to me if Santa left you coal!

Magnetic, magnetic North
Use me to find your way
Magnetic, magnetic North
If you’re lost, I’ll save the day

Let me lead you to places that you’ll want to go
What you’ll find, you never know
I might take you to Greenland or the Ukraine
But wherever you are your compass says the same

Magnetic, magnetic North
Use me to find your way
Magnetic, magnetic North
If you’re lost, I’ll save the day

Magnetic, magnetic North
Use me to find your way
Magnetic, magnetic North
If you’re lost, I’ll save the day
