SWAGTOWN by Belpre Elementary 5th Graders and Todd Burge


This song is the result of a workshop I conducted with the kids on April 4 2014.

No matter what I keep on hanging on
To a dream I am always depending on
It’s the best of me
That’s going to make it through
Make it through
Going to lose this frown I found
In Swag town

There’s a lot of pressure
To fit in there
They tell you how to walk and talk
And how to cut your hair
It’s the best of me
That’s going to make it through
Make it through
Going to lose this frown I found
In Swag town

If you’re cool they will pay you
Just to hang around
And talk like them
And make their sound
But I’m going to lose this frown I found
In Swag town

So let me tell you ‘bout the day
I lost my swag
It’s the same day I felt
I finally had life in the bag


It’s the best of me
That’s going to make it through
Make it through
Going to lose this frown I found

In Swag town

Thanks to the wonderful teachers, staff and especially the students of Belpre Elementary!
Special thanks to Artsbridge!
