The Time We Spring-Cleaned the World 🌱

The world it got so busy,
There were people all around.
They left their germs behind them;
In the air and on the ground.

These germs grew bigger and stronger.
They wanted to come and stay.
They didn’t want to hurt anyone -
They just really wanted to play.

Sometimes they tried to hold your hand,
Or tickled your throat or your nose.
They could make you cough and sneeze
And make your face as red as a rose.

And so these germs took over.
They started to make people ill,
And with every cough we coughed
More and more germs would spill.

All the queens and kings had a meeting.
“It’s time to clean the world up!” they said.
And so they had to close lots of fun stuff,
Just so these germs couldn’t spread.

We couldn’t go to cinemas
Or restaurants for our tea.
There was no football or parties,
The world got as quiet as can be.

The kids stopped going to school,
The mums and dads went to work less.
Then a great, big, giant scrubbing brush
Cleaned the sky and the sea and the mess!

Dads started teaching the sums,
Big brothers played with us more,
Mums were in charge of homework
And we read and played jigsaws galore!

The whole world was washing their hands
And building super toilet roll forts!
Outside was quiet and peaceful,
Now home was the place for all sports.

So we played in the world that was home
And our days filled up with fun and love,
And the germs they grew smaller and smaller
And the sun watched from up above.

Then one morning the sun woke up early,
She smiled and stretched her beams wide.
The world had been fully spring cleaned,
It was time to go back outside!

We opened our doors oh so slowly
And breathed in the clean and fresh air.
We promised thar forever and always
Of this beautiful world we’d take care! 💕

Cahoots NI

Our friends at Cahoots NI are putting this wonderful play on. 🐧

🐧 Calling all Playgroup, Nursery and Primary Teachers! 🐧

We have a frosty, festive treat in store for your little Penguins aged 3+ at Lyric Theatre Belfast this December

How does it feel to be different?
How does it feel to be alone when everyone else is in a pair?
How far do you have to go to find happiness?

Penguins is based on the true story of Roy and Silo, two male chinstrap penguins who lived at New York's Central Park Zoo; together they hatched an abandoned egg and raised a chick. This is a warm and engaging story about friendship, acceptance and the ever-changing definition of what makes a family.

Featuring music, magic and dance this non-verbal show is a unique experience that can be enjoyed by even the youngest of theatre-goers!

Group discount rates available. Tickets and more info at
