Song Sample (from our downloadable video version):
All aboard, life is an adventure.
All aboard, share the journey every day.
All aboard, we are here to help each other,
As we travel on our way.
There’ll be times when we won’t make the smartest choices,
Everyone will make mistakes, there is no doubt.
Sometimes we will find ourselves in deep, deep water,
But there’ll always be a hand to bail us out!
