Music and writing are strong interests for Debbie. This song, Change for the better, shows her talents. Debbie's friends at RCCUP were touched by the words of this song.

Change for the Better

by Debra Leech

This is the song Debra Leech wrote for RCCUP.

On my way, no turning back
To use the computer to look up a fact
Renfrew County Upgrading, that's the place
To take off a frown and wear a new face

A new start to make a living, that's for me
Learning made easy, that's the way it should be
Here's a rule we all can bear
Renfrew County Upgrading, people who care

Change for the better, a better way
A different space takes you away
Scary is the unknown, but such is life
Delete the overload and surf to the Light
