(Irys started off writing a song, then turned it into a poem and ended it more like a diary entry!)
IT’S GREAT TO BE 8
It’s great to be 8,
taking more opportunities and responsibilities ,
Oh yeah, it’s great to be 8.
I woke up in the morning and realised this moment won’t come again.
So I wanted to make the most of my time.
My mum told me I don’t look the same, I soon realised I was in a new stage of life.
So you see what I mean when I say, when you’re 8 it’s great.
The opportunities are like a conveyor belt coming past and you should take them all and learn from them all.
Museums, zoos, anything you can think of.
When you’re 8, you have more freedom.
It’s great to be 8.
