Bucklin’ Our Seatbelts

When I received a request for a seatbelt song via Facebook yesterday, I jumped at this songwriting opportunity.  I also asked myself: why hadn’t I thought of it already?  Buckling up is essential to our safety, and it’s a habit we learn at an early age.  Some kids just need a gentle reminder, and what better way to remind them than through song!

We’re gonna get in the car and take a ride,
So let’s open the door and get inside,
But before we pull away,
And before it’s time to play,
We need to buckle up.

Click, click, click,
We’re bucklin’ our seatbelts.
Click, click, click,
We gotta be safe.
A click for me, and a click for you,
Bucklin’ up is what we do!

What other safety skills can you think of that might make a good song topic?  I’ve already written these, but I’d love to add to the collection.  And of course, if you are looking for something a bit more personalized for your little guy or gal, you can always opt for a custom song.

While you’re busy brainstorming safety song ideas, I’ll be whipping up several new tunes for you over the next couple of weeks.  In May, I begin helping my students prepare for the transition from the regular school year to summer school, or for some, graduation and entry into the “adult” world.  It’s an exciting time, and a great opportunity to make music together!
