It's a New Year
Children's Song for New Year's Day
Pam Donkin and Greta Pedersen


There’s a new year coming, it’s a new year.* **
I’ll try a little harder for the new year.
I’ve come to this conclusion, I’ve made a resolution,
To try a little harder for me.

I don’t quite under stand what it means when they say,
A new year’s coming on New Year’s Day.
But I get the feeling that it’s really good.
It’s time to plan, yes I think I should.


I want to be nice to my family,
Even though it’s not always easy for me.
I want to get along with my friends at school.
I’ll try to follow all the rules.


I’ll listen hard to what the teachers say.
Do my best most every day.
I’ll be proud of myself, do the things I plan.
It feel’s so good to do the best I can.


TAG: Yes I’ll try a little harder,
Feels so good to try a little harder for me.

*Alternate words for January:
It’s a new year now, yes it’s a new year.

** Alternate words for new school year:
It’s a new school year, yes it’s a new year.
