Back when I was in third grade
I woke up late for school one day
I ran around, trying to get dressed
I left the house with my hair a mess
I got to class, I was met with shock
The teacher turned and pointed at the clock
She said, "Show and tell, you're the last one left
You better go, or you'll get an F"
Got up in front of the whole class
I was sweaty, nervous, thinking fast
I had not brought anything to show
So, I thought I'd tell the kids what they needed to know

Took my heart to show and tell
So all the kids could see inside
I took my heart to show and tell
And now they know I've got Christ in my life
Took my heart to show and tell (Took my heart to show and tell)
So all the kids could see inside (All the kids could see inside)
I took my heart to show and tell
And now they know I've got Christ in my life

I told them Jesus was my best friend
He said for me to hold my head
I said, "He'd do the same for you
If you just believe that He's true"
Got up in front of the whole class
I was sweaty, nervous, thinking fast
I had not brought anything to show
So, I thought I'd tell the kids what they needed to know

Took my heart to show and tell (Took my heart to show and tell)
So all the kids could see inside (All the kids could see inside)
I took my heart to show and tell
And now they know I've got Christ in my life
Took my heart to show and tell (Took my heart to show and tell)
So all the kids could see inside (All the kids could see inside)
I took my heart to show and tell
And now they know I've got Christ in my life

I took my heart to show and tell
So all the kids could see inside
I took my heart to show and tell
And now they know I've got Christ in my life
Took my heart to show and tell (Took my heart to show and tell)
So all the kids could see inside (All the kids could see inside)
I took my heart to show and tell
And now they know I've got Christ in my life
