Lyrics

I’m going new places everyday
‘Cause I’m older than I was yesterday
In the car’s front seat, it’s really neat
I ride my two-wheeler down the street — it can’t be beat

I’m better at things more than yesterday
I’m learning things more than yesterday
I’m here to tell you that I’m gonna say
That I’m doing everything more than yesterday

With bigger books the fun lasts longer
And in a race my body is stronger
On new rides at the park, or trying new food
And even more tomorrow keeps me in a good mood

I’m better at things more than yesterday
I’m learning things more than yesterday
I’m here to tell you that I’m gonna say
That I’m doing everything more than yesterday
