This song was recorded at the summer day camp for children aged 7 - 12 in Mariposa, California. The music education program is a partnership between Mariposa Parks and Recreation and Mariposa County Arts Council. The children wrote the lyrics, sang the song and made musical instruments that are featured on the recording. All profits from the sale of this song are being donated to the Mariposa Community Foundation. The foundation will use the funds to help people who lost homes and property in the Detwiler wildfire, which burned over 80,000 acres near Mariposa in 2017.


School’s out for the summer
The breeze in the trees
The warmth of a sun-ny day
What’s waiting for me?

Swallowtail butterflies fluttering around
Here I am, sitting on the ground
Jet-black blackbirds chirping in a tree
I’m sitting down, swinging my feet
Walls of water shimmer in the sun
I just want to have some fun
Tall green trees and a beautiful sky
I wish I could spread my wings and fly

The wind blowing softly on my face and ears
Trees that have grown for years and years
An American flag flying high above the town
Everything is going around
Breathing in the cool fresh air
When will I get to go to the fair?
You never know what in the world you’ll find
Is that a potato? Wait, never mind.
