"YOU GOTTA HAVE A GLORY" (with chords)

Intro (A):

"That was a delicious meal!  Who'd like to help on dishes?"  (Kids): "I would!"

Verse 1

(A) Well, there're tables to get wiped down

And dishes to be done.

They may not seem important,

They may not seem that fun,

But (F#m) if we work together,

Washing those plates one by one,

It will not take forever

'Til they're shining bright like the sun.

Refrain 1

You're (Bm) gonna find it's (F#m) not so bad,

With a (Bm) whistle & a (F#m) smile,

That you (G) not only com(D)plete your task,

But you (F) finish it in (E) style!

Chorus 1

You (A) gotta have a glory in the thing you do,

An everlasting something that'll see you through.

Cheer up the one beside you if he's feeling blue!

You gotta have a glory in the thing you do!

Interlude (talking): "Do any of you kids have pets?  Well...."

Verse 2

(A) Care for the birdie in the cage, and the fish in the bowl,

And change the kitty litter, take the dog for a stroll.

Your pets will know you love 'em, never left in the cold,

When you do the job with all your heart & your soul.

It (F#m) may seem like a bore

To do these simple chores,

But they've got to get done,

And if you will be one (E)

Refrain 2

To (Bm) do your share (F#m) of the work,

You'll (Bm) share in the (F#m) reward,

'Cause (G) faithfulness in (D) little things

Brings the (F) blessings of the (E) Lord!

Chorus 2

You (A) gotta have a glory in the thing you do,

An everlasting something that'll see you through.

Be good to little pets like God is good to you!

You gotta have a glory in the thing you do!

Interlude: A-E

Refrain 3

(Bm) Someone's watching (F#m) all we do,

(Bm) Writing it all (F#m) down,

And if (G) you do His work with (D) all your might,

You'll get a (F) bright & shiny (E) crown!

Chorus 3

You (A) gotta have a glory in the thing you do,

An everlasting something that'll see you through.

So scrub that plate, make it shine like new!

You gotta have a glory in the thing you do!

Chorus 4

You (A) gotta have a glory in the thing you do,

An everlasting something that'll see you through.

Keep singing while you're working! Sing, "Whoo whoo whoo!

You gotta have a glory in the thing you do!

You gotta have a glory in the thing you do!"

End Skit: (A) "All done!" "Yeah, that was fast!"
