Hi everyone!

We are excited to present “So Many Colors, So Many Shapes”. It’s a song that teaches kids that people come in different colors and shapes, yet share the same hearts!
The whole Singing Walrus family, including the three little cows from previous videos years ago, appear in this big, happy, and groovy performance on a huge floating stage.
As they sing and float around the world, they meet lots of new friends – friends of all colours, sizes, and shapes.

As usual, we kept the lyrics simple and repetitive so that it’s even singable for little ones. Teachers and parents can use this song for lessons on topics such as diversity, body, or traveling.
We see so many creative lesson plans and art projects developed by passionate educators. We hope this song will be a worthy musical contribution!

Here are the lyrics of “So Many Colors, So Many Shapes”:

Verse 1
In this big, big world
There is only one me
I like all my colours
Of my eyes, of my hair, of my skin

In this big, big world
There is only one you
I like all your colours
Of your eyes, of your hair, of your skin

Chorus
So many colours (kids repeat)
So many shapes (kids repeat)
We all look different (kids repeat)
But our hearts are all the same

So many colours (kids repeat)
So many shapes (kids repeat)
We all look different (kids repeat)
So come on everybody, let’s celebrate

Verse 2
In this big, big world
There is only one me
I like all my shapes
Everything from my head to my feet

In this big, big world
There is only one you
I like all your shapes
Everything from your head to your feet 

Verse 3
In this big, big world
We are one family
Everywhere I go
People sing, people dance, just like me! 

In this big, big world
We are one family 
Everywhere we go
We can share, we can play, we can sing
