Hi everyone, sorry for the long delay in posting. Very busy with a little one around. It should surprise none that my post after some time is about something kid-related, this time, Anpanman. I recently discovered that the Anpanman march lyrics are amazingly philosophical. Here is a link to the song with lyrics:
The lyrics are about addressing the question 何のために生まれた (why you were born) and the sadness of dying without knowing your purpose and happiness in life. It extorts children not to forget their dreams.
This got me thinking: What are some philosophical kids' songs in English? You know, songs about the meaning of life and that kind of thing? Any ideas or favorites out there?
