This is a favourite of my performances for children.
A song about parent's hiding the glitter away...and perhaps how we sometimes deny ourselves the glitter of life!
Percussion is a suitcase and empty can of coconut milk.
I know there’s glitter in the cupboard,
In perfect brand new tubes,
But I never get to use it,
My mum’s always got an excuse.
She says ‘It’s not long until dinner’
And ‘It always makes such a mess’
I was three when we last used the glitter,
Now I’m nearly ten.
Pencils and paper are fine,
To draw cat faced butterflies
But I really need that glitter
For the comets that blast through the skies.
For the sparkle of the scarecrow’s treasure
The glisten of the monkey’s crown
For the glimmer of the newborn galaxies
Above a Martian mountain town
The stardust that floats through my dreams
Races just out of my reach
But the glitter shut up in the cupboard
Is right there and wants to be free .
