The Story Map Song
to the tune of "There's a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea," Lyrics by Suzy Red

1

There’s a story buried deep in my brain.
There’s a story buried deep in my brain.
There’s a story.
There’s a story.
There’s a story buried deep in my brain.

2

There’s a place in the story buried deep in my brain.
There’s a place in the story buried deep in my brain.
There’s a place.
There’s a place.
There’s a place buried deep in my brain.

3

There’s a time in the place in the story
Buried deep in my brain.
There’s a time in the place in the story
Buried deep in my brain.
There’s a time.
There’s a time.
There’s a time
Buried deep in my brain.

4

There are characters
In the time in the place
In the story buried deep in my brain.
There are characters
In the time in the place
In the story buried deep in my brain.
There are characters.
There are characters.
There are characters buried deep in my brain.

5

There’s a goal
For the characters
In the time
In the place
In the story
Buried deep in my brain.
There’s a goal.
There’s a goal.
There’s a goal buried deep in my brain.

6

There’s a problem
To reach the goal for the characters
In the time in the place
In the story buried deep in my brain.
There’s a problem
To reach the goal for the characters
In the time in the place
In the story buried deep in my brain.
There’s a problem.
There’s a problem.
There’s a problem buried deep in my brain.

7

There’s an attempt
To solve the problem
To reach the goal for the characters
In the time
In the place
In the story buried
In my brain.
There’s an attempt
To solve the problem
To reach the goal for the characters
In the time
In the place
In the story buried
In my brain.
Threre’s an attempt.
There’s an attempt.
There’s an attempt buried deep in my brain.

8

There’s a result of the attempt
To solve the problem
For the characters
In the time in the place
In the story buried deep in my brain.
There’s a result of the attempt
To solve the problem
For the characters
In the time in the place
In the story buried deep in my brain.
There’s a result.
There’s a result.
There’s a result
Buried deep in my brain.

9

There's a conclusion
From result of the attempt
To solve the problem
For the characters
In the time
In the place
In the story buried
In my brain.
There's a conclusion
From result of the attempt
To solve the problem
For the characters
In the time
In the place
In the story buried
In my brain.
There’s a conclusion.
There’s a conclusion.
There’s a conclusion
Now I'll let the story OUT of my brain!
