Boomerang

I wrote this song for the first annual Purposeful Acts of Kindness Week in my community. In conjunction with
Earth Rhythms Drums & Percussion,
The Reading Eagle, local radio and television stations, and other organizations and individuals, Unity of Reading, Center for Spiritual Growth and Positive Living chose the week of May 13-19, 2012 to focus on at least one daily “random” (but on purpose) act of kindness. The week was a success, raising awareness of the importance of kindness and encouraging people to both give and receive kindness easily and gratefully.

This song has evolved, before and since this performance, but the lyrics and mp3 below are from the Mother’s Day performance at Unity. 🙂

Boomerang – Lyrics

Instrument: Lady – Tenor Flea ukulele

Refrain:
Be ye kind
Lighten the mind
Of someone else
And bring good feelings to yourself!
Be ye kind
And you will find
Your kindness comes back to you!

1. And if you wonder if it helps
Try kindness and see!
You make a difference in every way
Believe, believe!
Refrain:

2. Just give a smile or open a door
It doesn’t have to cost, but means much more!
With every kindness you are blessed
You release pain and stress!
And like the shining of a star
Your kindness reaches far! So

Refrain 2:
Be ye kind
Lighten the mind
Of someone else
And bring good feelings to yourself!
Be ye kind
And you will find
Your kindness comes back
It always comes back
Multiplied To you!
