lyrics

The Dot Song - lyrics by Emily Dale and Peter H. Reynolds

An empty paper,
Like a polar bear in a snowstorm.
See where it takes you,
See where it takes you.

When you make, make, make, a mark.
All you gotta do is start.
Paint a dot and watch it splatter,
Make, make, make a mark,
Make it matter.
Make it matter.

I wanna see you sign it,
put your signature at the bottom.
And see where it takes you,
See where it takes you.

When you make, make, make, a mark.
All you gotta do is start.
Paint a dot and watch it splatter,
Make, make, make a mark,
Make it matter.
Make it matter.

And when somebody else
thinks they can't draw a line,
Remember that you can help.
Below that squiggle,
Help them sign.

And make, make, make, a mark.
All you gotta do is start.
Paint a dot and watch it splatter,
Make, make, make a mark.
Make, make, make a mark.

Make, make, make a mark.
All you gotta do is start.
Paint a dot and watch it splatter,
Make, make, make, a mark.
Make it matter.
Make it matter.
