(spoken)
Father: (to Mother) How's the packing going dear?

Mother: Just about done.

Father: Oh good. (to Jimmy) Well Jimmy, tomorrow's the big day. We're moving to a new house.

Jimmy: I don't wanna move. Everything's going to change, and I want things to stay just the way they are.

Mother: Dear, now we understand how you feel but everything's gonna be just fine, you'll see.

Jimmy: Sure...

Mother: Oh, try to get some sleep, honey. (Father turns out light) Good night.

Jimmy: 'Night Mom.

Father: Good night, Jimmy.

Jimmy: 'Night Dad.

Hoots: (pausing by window) Yo Bunky!

Jimmy: Huh?

Hoots: You say you're feelin' bad because you have to move? Gonna have a new room and you're gonna miss your old room?

Jimmy: Yeah.

Hoots: And you're not gonna know anybody, and you're gonna have to make all new friends, and you're gonna miss all your old friends? Is that what's troubling you, Bunky?

Jimmy: Jimmy.

Hoots: Is that what's troubling you, Bunky ... I mean, Jimmy?

Jimmy: Yeah.

Hoots: Well you can stop worrying. Just remember -

Things are always changing
So don't be sad and blue
Change can make you happy
'Cause it brings you somethin' new

Your caterpillar's all wrapped up
And he won't tell you why
Inside his sack he's changing
Soon he'll be a butterfly

And you know it doesn't matter
If you lost your pollywogs
They really didn't disappear
They all changed into frogs!

Hey! Things are always changing
So don't be sad and blue
Change can make you happy
'Cause it brings you somethin' new
Sing it! Things are always changing
So don't be sad and blue
Change can make you happy
'Cause it brings you somethin' new

Yeah, not much stays just like it was
As that old clock keeps tickin'
For every little egg you lose
You could get back a chicken!

And if you plant an acorn
And wait a year or three
Then turn around and look again
You just may find a tree!

Hey! Things are always changing
So don't be sad and blue
Change can make you happy
'Cause it brings you somethin' new
Sing it! Things are always changing
So don't be sad and blue
Change can make you happy
'Cause it brings you somethin' new

The seasons keep on changing too
The summer turns to fall
No more swimming, no more picnics
But we get to play football!

Hey! Things are always changing
So don't be sad and blue
Change can make you happy
'Cause it brings you somethin' new
Everybody! Things are always changing
So don't be sad and blue
Change can make you happy
'Cause it brings you somethin' new!
Hey!

(spoken)

Hoots: So how you feeling?

Jimmy: Great, Bunky!

Hoots: That's Hoots. (he leaves)

Mother: (in hall) Are you all right, dear?

Jimmy: Yes, Mom.

Father: Are you sure, son?

Jimmy: Yes! Now please let me get to sleep, we're moving tomorrow!
