The Key's the Key
Joan Maute, Ed.D.


This song is available on Joan Maute's Unfolding Maps.   


When you look at a map,
What is it you really see?
Cities, lines, and symbols,
Rivers, countries, boundaries.
Maps are many sizes
Many colors stare at me,
But what do all these symbols mean?
Better look and read the key.

The key's the key, the key's the key.
It's the magic decoder the confusion unloader,
It can save you from scrambling your mind.
Don't let symbols unnerve you 'cause it's right there to serve you.
Use it once and you'll use it all the time.

What's this color stand for?
What can this symbol mean?
How big are the cities?
What's the distance in between?
Is this the state capital?
Does this show the hot and cold?
What about the rainfall?
Mining, farming, things untold?

The key's the key, the key's the key.
It's the magic decoder the confusion unloader,
It can save you from scrambling your mind.
Don't let symbols unnerve you 'cause it's right there to serve you.
Use it once and you'll use it all the time.

Where does this state begin?
What's the name of this new nation?
What's the export, what does it mean?
What's the latest population?
If you want to know the scale,
If you want to really see
Just what everything stands for
See the corner, read the key.

The key's the key, the key's the key...
