Terry's Song

by Chiquita Lipsey, Philip Bergman, Hannah Christiansen and Laura Yawney
Vocals by Sarah Ponder, Meagan McNeal and Keanon Kyles


If energy were music, well then this song would be Terry
He was bouncing round, his goofy laugh, that boy yeah he loved everyone
He would get to talking and make up the words as he would go
He held the doors on Madison and folks would say
“That’s right, young man”

Climbing on the rooftops, on top of the world

Beautiful smile, how can I stay mad at you?
Beautiful soul, come on brother, I got you.

But I digress.
I’d be elated every time that he came home from school
Loving his fantastic stories, even if they were not true
Always so excited, about what I don’t know
Sure he’d get off track but then our laughter
Would fill the house

Climbing on the rooftops, on top of the world

Beautiful smile, how can I stay mad at you?
Beautiful soul, come on brother, I got you.

Climbing on the rooftops, on top of the world

Beautiful smile, how can I stay mad at you?
Beautiful soul, come on brother, I got you.
