This afternoon, during centers, I was sitting at an empty table stuffing folders for the weekend.  The room was rather quiet, when all of the sudden, out of nowhere, I heard:

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes
Saying AYO!
Gotta let go!
I wanna celebrate and live my life
Saying AYO!
Baby, let’s go!

‘Cause we gon’ rock this club
We gon’ go all night
We gon’ light it up
Like it’s dynamite!
‘Cause I told you once
Now I told you twice
We gon’ light it up
Like it’s dynamite!

Now, I kid you not, every lyric was intact.  Every note perfect. It was Roger.  His head tilted back and his voice a sweet tenor.  Apparently, the boy can sing… I’d never really heard his voice stand out from the crowd during our many group sing-alongs.

Well naturally, I began to join in.  I, too, love this tune and I figured, why not?  It is Friday after all.  Well many of the other sprouts joined in too.  It’s been a long week and we needed a little spontaneous joyous singing… Dynamite indeed.
