You Can Take a Turn and Then I'll Get It Back

When two friends both want the same thing
At the same time
It's great when you learn that you can both take turns
You can take a turn and then I'll get it back

I knew that your tutu could make the very best lion mane
At first I didn't want to let it go but good friends
They can show they care when they share
You can take a turn and then I'll get it back
I can take a turn and then you'll get it back

When I wanted to dance our jungle dance
But I wanted to dance with Tigey
At first I didn't want to let him go but friends should know
That they can show they care when they share
You can take a turn and then I'll get it back
I can take a turn and then you'll get it back

You can take a turn and then I'll get it back
I can take a turn and then you'll get it back

Once I didn't have a book to read
But you saw me and you knew I was a friend in need
And you gave me a turn with your favorite book
Your smile is all it took

You can take a turn and then I'll get it back
You can take a turn and then I'll get it back

Once I didn't want to share my helicoptor
I said it's mine, it's mine, it's not fair
But Daniel was sad, and friends should share
It made him happy and that made me happy

You can take a turn and then I'll get it back
You can take a turn and then I'll get it back

Friends can share to show they care
The happiness you give will be everywhere
You can take a turn and then I'll get it back
You can take a turn and then I'll get it back
