SUPERIOR, Wis. - The Husky Refinery fire and evacuation was a scary situation for families in the area. But two Bryant Elementary fourth graders came up with a positive way to sing about it. 

Lila Graves and Kate Christner re-wrote the lyrics to "Don't Worry Be Happy," by Bobby McFerrin. 

"I don't think Bobby McFerrin would mind if we change his song a little bit," Kate joked. 

They both sang and Kate played a ukulele at Bryant Elementary's talent show Friday. 

"The buses came, and kids were scared. But teachers and staff all showed they cared," Lila sang. "Don't worry. Be happy." 

Kate's mom said she just started playing the ukulele three and a half weeks ago.
