When we work and play sometimes we just set stuff down.
And when we leave things lay, pretty soon they’re layin’ all around.
Gather round now children and take a look around the room.
It may be kind of messy, but we’re gonna clean it up soon!
So let’s start…
Pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up.
Everbody’s workin’ at cleanin’ it up, cleanin’ it up.
Let’s get together and tidy it up, tidy it up.
Putting things away is fun when everyone helps.
In a box or in a drawer, or maybe on a shelf.
When we work and play sometimes we like to try somethin’ new.
But before we try it we’ve got some cleanin’ up to do!
So now we’re…
Let’s get together and we’ll pick it up fast,
so that it’s clean when we come back to class.
Working together can be so much fun.
Before you know it, the job is done!
Pickin’ it up is easy, when everyone helps.
And everybody knows it’s no fun, doin’ it by yourself.
So gather ‘round now children and take a look around the room.
It may be kind of messy but we’re gonna clean it up soon.
That’s ‘cuz we’re…
CHORUS: And end with “Pickin’ it Up!”
