Track Name: Skyline Island
We had a blast it went too fast
We wish it could last
School is over
It's a new day. Wish we could stay
Going away from
Skyline Island

So say goodbye to Skyline Island
Time to go our separate ways
For many years we've grown and learned there
We're gonna miss our Skyline days

We played in the sun we had some fun
Now we must run
Summer is calling
Now we must flee, so we are free
Happy to be
Moving forward

So say goodbye to Skyline Island
Time to go our separate ways
For many years we've grown and learned there
We're gonna miss our Skyline days

Although we have mixed emotions,
It's time to celebrate
We're nervous wrecks, so hit the decks
It's time to graduate

Say goodbye to Skyline Island
Time to go our separate ways
For many years we've grown and learned there
We're gonna miss our Skyline days
Track Name: My Heart's On Fire
Every day I learn, learn, learn
A new way I can burn, burn, burn
I wanna see the light
I want my freedom

My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire and it's burning brighter

Can I change my fate, fate, fate?
I cannot stand to wait, wait, wait
Who will I become?
I wanna see my future

My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire and it's burning brighter

I have talent but I don't know what it is
How can I let it out?
How can I set it free?
I have talent but I don't know what it is
Won't somebody help me?

My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire and it's burning brighter

My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire
My heart's on fire
Track Name: Drop That Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack - and survive
Drop that Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack - look alive

Do the
Back to back scratch. Grab yourself a buddy
Stand up and wiggle like a pig getting muddy
Do the
Let It Go Blow. Push out the power,
Throw the snow, Raise the ice tower

Drop that Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack - and survive
Drop that Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack - look alive

Do the
Boogy Man. Hands over head
Stumble around like you're just half dead
Do the
Crazy Gator. Fall to the ground
Lie on your back, shake your body all around

Drop that Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack - and survive
Drop that Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack - look alive

I got the weirdest moves in the whole fifth grade
No you don't your skillz are starting to fade
My moves are wackier than yours and that's a fact
No your weird moves are just an act
I put my thumbs in my ears and hang upside down
I can do the baby crawl with a wah wah sound
I can point my toes up toward the sky
I can dance with just my eye
You know what? We've both got moves
Let's just get down to the groove

Drop that Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack - and survive
Drop that Wacky Wack
Drop that Wacky Wack - look alive
Track Name: Eye of the Veggie
I've got the eye of the veggie. I can make it, I'm strong.
My roots are growing very long.
I've got the eye of the veggie. I'm growing, with pride.
My leaves are spreading green and wide

There's something you need to know
It takes a long long time to grow
You just have to go with the flow
Or you will feel frustration
You may be in a drought
And you won't be able to sprout
But don't begin to doubt
Improve your situation

I've got the eye of the veggie. I can make it, I'm strong.
My roots are growing very long.
I've got the eye of the veggie. I'm growing, with pride.
My leaves are spreading green and wide

You shouldn't even blink
At what other people think
Just give yourself a wink
And show determination
Whenever your roots are bound
And it's got you feeling down
Just turn your day around
And have a celebration

I've got the eye of the veggie. I can make it, I'm strong.
My roots are growing very long.
I've got the eye of the veggie. I'm growing, with pride.
My leaves are spreading green and wide
My leaves are spreading green and wide
