It's sometimes easier to stick to things that we know. This rollicking gospel song, however, encourages not just kids but everyone to try something new!


Every morning I wake up
I want the same breakfast to eat
When I leave for school
I’ll only wear my favourite shoes on my feet
After school
I only like a couple of activities
Trying something new always
Leaves me ill at ease

Never rode a bike, without training wheels
I’m a little picky, when it comes to meals
When we go for sushi, I won’t try the eels
I don’t like a surprise, until I’ve seen what it reveals

Ooh, ooh, ooh, try something new

Never tried a new language, like Spanish or Chinese
Swimming in the ocean, that will make me freeze
Haven’t read philosophy, Plato or Socrates
And when it comes to hiking, well, nature makes me sneeze

Well I’ve never tried before
But I might try it with you
Well I’ve never tried before
It’s time to try something new

Never tried parcours, don’t have the muscle tone
Never played a trumpet, or a slide trombone
Not a fan of cherries, don’t like the cherry stone
Don’t like to share my jokes, afraid that they’ll make you groan


Don’t know about rhythm, never tried to dance
I haven’t learned French, never been to France
Don’t like getting dirty, In the garden planting plants
All this makes me nervous, I don’t like to take a chance

Nervous ‘bout the mountains
Never tried to ski - Gonna try it
I’m afraid of heights
Never climbed a tree - Gonna try it
Haven’t tried eggplant
Or tasted kimchi - Gonna try it
When I listen to radio
Only CBC - Gonna try it
I don’t like spelling - Gonna try it
Enter a spelling bee - Gonna try it
Never rode a horse - Gonna try it
Or even a pony - Gonna try it
Never tried piano - Gonna try it
Can’t find middle C - Gonna try it
Don’t like too much sun - Gonna try it
Overdosing vitamin D - Gonna try it
