lyrics

Where Do Playgrounds Come From?

D G
Where do playgrounds come from?
A D
Where do playgrounds come from?
A G D
Do they come from the sea? Do they float down the Murrumbidgee?
A G D
Do they fall from the trees? Do they sprout up from a seed?
G D
Do they blow in on the breeze? Are they built by thousands of worker bees?
A G D
Nah: each time we add our bit this playground grows by small degrees!

D G
Where do playgrounds come from?
A G D
Where do playgrounds come from?
D G
Where do playgrounds come from?
A D
They come from you and you and you and you and me.
A G D
Do they come from the sky? Floating down for a whale of a time?
A G D
Do they come from the clouds? Are they carried in by a crowd?
G D
Do they hatch out of eggs? Do they walk in on fifteen legs?
A G D
Are they from outer space? Do they come from an imaginary place?

D G
Where do playgrounds come from?
A G D
Where do playgrounds come from?
D G
Where do playgrounds come from?
A D
They come from you and you and you and you and me.
G
Boundless opportunity
D A
to make some friends, to build some fun and give to our community
(A) G D
a gift that’s here to say: everyone should have somewhere to play
D G
Where do playgrounds come from?
A G D
Where do playgrounds come from?
D G
Where do playgrounds come from?
A D
They come from you and you and you and you and…
G
you and you and you and you and…
A D
you and you and you and you and me.
