Extraordinary Things

Explore ideas about what makes a hero. Perhaps it's those who stand up for others and for what they believe is right and good. Whatever it is that makes them a hero in our eyes they are, after all, just people. Each of us has the potential to be a hero to someone. Sometimes it just means going ‘the extra mile’.

Use to promote anti-bullying.

1. Extraordinary Things

(Choir)
Listen here now
You will hear us
Give a cheer now for our heroes

H-E-R-O-E-S
They stand out from all the rest!

(Solo Rap)
I’m thinkin’ about my heroes
What it is that makes them great
They’re ordinary people
Just like me and my mates
But what makes them so special?
You might like to know
What WE think it takes to be a HERO!

(Choir)
People who stand up, stand up
For what they believe
Swimming against the tide
People who reach out, reach out
To others in need
Refusing to turn a blind eye

CHORUS
Heroes are ordinary people
Doing extraordinary things
Heroes are people like you and me
Doing extraordinary things
Doing extraordinary things
Heroes are ordinary people

We can all be heroes, we can take a stand
We can make a difference, everybody can
Step outside the circle and take a chance
Stand up for what is right in every circumstance

You just never know how much the things you do
Influence the people around you
Be the one to show that you can lead the way
You could be someone’s hero today

CHORUS

(Solo Rap)
You don’t have to be a superstar or leader of a nation
(Choir)
No!
(Solo Rap)
You just have to be your-self, make the best of the situation
(Choir)
Yeah!

(All)
We've all got a part to play
We won't sit around all day
We're gonna get up, stand up
Stand up now and say!

CHORUS

Doing extraordinary things
Doing extraordinary things
Doing extraordinary things
Doing extraordinary things
Ordinary people, extraordinary things
