    ok, the song is cute. BUT!!!!!! The key is wrong wrong wrong. I’m a music educator as well as a voice teacher. If you going to write for kids, key it so that the notes are no lower than the A below middle C and no higher than Treble C. The song is written with chords for C, but all the notes are below the staff. Also, your recording is lame and in E-flat. Key this song up to G. At least it’s singable.

    Don’t forget the second verse, based on the fact that missionaries have to eat what’s culturally acceptable where they are, and it’d hurt their testimony to refuse food. This verse is great to sing with kids!

    Be a missionary every day
    Eat whatever food comes your way
    Be it ants in your cornchips
    Or roaches in your pop
    You can’t turn your nose up
    Just eat it till you drop so
    Be a missionary every day
    If it wiggled eat it anyway
    It may be green and fuzzy
    Or maybe it still moves but
    Be a missionary
    God’s own emissary
    Be a missionary today
    Let’s eat!
