I wrote Love Is last year for my nephew, but have used it often with my students at the end of a music class to calm things down a bit. I wanted to write a song that would celebrate feelings of love between family members and best friends. It’s wound up being something of a hit in many of my classrooms. My students really enjoy the chorus, and hearing the pre-schoolers cry out “WOVE WOVE WOVE WOVE, that’s me and you”  or watching the kindergartners close their eyes and sing with feeling always makes me smile.

*Note: In a classroom setting, I usually start with an extra chorus.

Love Is by Alina Celeste

If I had a milkshake, I’d share it with you.
If I had a dollar, I’d buy you something too.
Cuz’ Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you.
Oh Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you.

If you fell and scraped your knee, I’d fix it up with a kiss.
And if it got too dark to see, I’d keep you safe with this:
My Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you.
Oh Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you.

It it started raining, I’d cover you up.
I’ve got nothing to say here, cuz not much rhymes with “up.”
But Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you
Oh Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you

If your nose gets runny, I’ll find you a tissue
And if you get lost someday, I’ll come find you
Cuz Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you
Oh Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you
Yes Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you
My Love, love, love, love, that’s me and you
