Next, it was time for Spanish lesson #3 podcast from Parker High School students.

Musical guest Charlie Petitt brought his ukelele and performed a few of his original songs including “I will always be in love with you”.

Charlie PetittThere may come a day
When the children never play
And the eagles have no wings
And the squirrels have nothing to do…

When the cats will never fight
And the owls just sleeps at night
But until that day comes
I will always be in love with you

There may come a day
When the men put their guns away
And the people who make laws
Can see each other’s point of view

Everybody does what’s right
There is no one black or white
But until that day comes
I will always be in love with you…

We waste all our lives
Waiting for some things to change
Either wishing that they would or praying that they wouldn’t…
Doing anything we know full we shouldn’t…

And there may come a day
When the earth will melt away
And the sun can not rise
So the sky will never be blue…

And some evening we may find
That the stars no longer shine
But until that day comes
I will always be in love with you

But until that day comes
I will always be in love with you!
