CAMPAIGNING

Charlie's speech

Hi there, little buddies!

I'm your friend Charlie the Raven, and I think I would make a great mascot for your group.

I've got personality plus! I'm very lively, and I never feel downhearted about anything, even when it's minus forty outside and there isn't much around to eat.

I'm a helpful guy too, because I like to clean up things: I try to eat up all the food that has been thrown away by others.

Because I'm a little noisy, some people say I'm full of mischief. But I like to think I'm full of fun. I just love to play the way you do. I often mimic sounds I hear, and sometimes, when I'm flying, I glide and swoop and pretend I'm an eagle or a gull.

Every day just after the sun goes down, I love to gather with my friends and perch on some high place. Then we all chatter about the things we've done during the day.

For a happy and lively class, why not choose me as your mascot? You'll be glad you did.

 

Charlie's campaign song

Charlie the Raven is a mischievous fellow,
Who likes popcorn and hot-dogs and jello.
His idea of a bash
Is to clean up the trash, (children hop and make motion of picking up)
And then he'll eat ‘til he's drowsy
And mellow.
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah. (children form hands like cawing beaks)

Refrain

Walk like Charlie, talk like Charlie. (walk like a bird)
Walk like Charlie, talk like Charlie.

Charlie is a daring young flyer
Who circles up higher and higher;
He swoops away, way, way down
Just to hop around on the ground, (children spread arms and jump twice)
To take off even higher.
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah. (children form hands like cawing beaks)

Refrain

Walk like Charlie, talk like Charlie. (walk like a bird)
Walk like Charlie, talk like Charlie.
