This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love.

Martin Luther King (1957-1968)

Usage

English Months of the year can be tricky for young learners of English to remember. The first step is to get them to know the name of their birthday month. This can be done using a calendar. Then listen to the song and when someone hears their birthday month they jump. There is an interlude in the middle where months can be called out randomly. After this children can be encouraged to dance to the song and jump and call out their birthday month. Then build up to singing the whole song.
