Special Event: Writing About “The Big Apple”

Grover song

When creative people get together, great things happen. Four creative kids can tell you that first-hand. They met with songwriter and musician David Grover to create an original song. They brainstormed and collaborated to write a song about…what else? NEW YORK!

Catherine McCarthy, Jack Freiser, William Freedman and Lucy Kleinschmidt – all musicians themselves – wrote and performed this song with Grover:

 

The Big Apple

Chorus:

We love the Big Apple…the Big Apple

New York is our home

It’s the place to be

It’s the place to see

Verse:

Big flashing lights…Broadway nights

East Side, West Side and Washington Heights

Central Park…with dogs that bark

It’s a city that wakes up when it gets dark

We love New York to the top of the Empire State…

To the bottom of our hearts!

Chorus:

We love the Big Apple…the Big Apple

New York is our home

It’s the place to be

It’s the place to see
