Track Name: Lookin out the Window
LOOKIN’ OUT THE WINDOW

Lookin’out the window tell me what do you see
It’s beautiful , It’s beautiful
Lookin’out the window tell me what do you see
It’s beautiful
So many trees with the colorful leaves
doin’ a lil dance while they sway in the breeze
Lookin’out the window it’s oh so beautiful

Lookin’ out the window at the stars at night
It’s beautiful, It’s beautiful
Lookin’ out the window at the stars at night
It’s beautiful
Moon’s so big as it lights up the sky
I kinda see the guy with the twinkle in his eye
Lookin out the window at the stars so beautiful

Sittin by the river tell me how you feel
Powerful, powerful
Sittin by the river tell me how you feel
powerful
It’s oh so fast and it’s oh so loud
make me feel strong, make me feel proud
Sittin by the river is oh so powerful

Lookin at your mamma tell me what do you see
she’s beautiful, she’s beautiful
Lookin’ at your pappa tell me what do you see
He ain’t so bad
Snuggle in between ‘em in the middle of the night
lets me know everything gonna be alright
Lookin at my mamma and my papa so beautiful

Lookin in the mirror tell me what do you see
it’s beautiful, it’s beautiful
Lookin in the mirror tell ya what I see
My hairy chin
It might sound funny but when I sing
makes me feel like I’m a part of everything
lookin in the mirror is oh so beautiful

Lookin out the window tell me what do you see
It’s beautiful , It’s beautiful
lookin out the window tell me what do you see
all my dreams
Lookin out the window both far and wide
but all i really need to do is look inside
lookin out the window at all my dreams

Track Name: How Was Your Day
HOW WAS YOUR DAY

How was your day today at school
Did you follow all the rules
Did they let you play with glue
Did they

Did you have a fight with your best friend
Did you work it out and then -
you were best friends once again
Did ya

It's dinner time
Let's talk about your day
Mamma and me are totally into
Whatever you have to say

We like to think
That we're not the type to pry -
But we got a call from the office
Saying you made someone cry

How was your day on he playground
Did you get dizzy on the whirly go round
Did you swing yourself so high
Did ya

Building castles in the sand
Moving clouds with a wave of your hand
Or did you just work on your tan
Did ya

It's sleepy time -
Let's say what we're grateful for
I'll read you books and rub your back
Then tip toe out the door

In the morning i will ask about your dreams...
We'll sit down and figure out
what this whole crazy world means



SPOKEN VAMP
The laundry bin is pining up
refidgerator emptied out
shopping list is three pages long
but my kid got sick so I can’t go out,

I chase those darn kids everywhere
This one got bubble gum in her hair
that one tipped over backwards in his chair

to celebrate a little bit of you and me time

Track Name: Lucky Penny
LUCKY PENNY
I was walking down the street one day
saw Penny put it in my pocket
I made a wish that I'll never say
wrote it down immediately forgot it

Now I'm searching high
I'm searching low
where that Penny go
oh no

I lost a tooth the other day
Dad said to put it underneath my pillow
So when the tooth fairy comes my way
She'll leave a quarter to help the other teeth grow

Now I'm searching high
I'm searching low
Where'd that quarter go
Oh no

You can do anything
trust your imagination
so close your eyes and make a wish
Without a hesitation

now open your eyes
what a surprise, your wish came true
Cuz that which you believe in
Is already inside of you

I was swimming in the lake today
saw a treasure buried in the bottom
I held my breath and dove all the way
down deeper then I had ever gotten

now I’m searching high
I’m searching low
where’d that treasure go
Oh no

You can do anything
trust your imagination
so close your eyes and make a wish
Without a hesitation

now open your eyes
what a surprise, your wish came true
Cuz that which you believe in
Is already inside of you
Track Name: Gingerbread Man
GINGERBREAD MAN
catch me
catch me
If you can
Catch me I am the gingerbread man
the gingerbread man
I’m the gingerbread man
And you ain't gonna catch me

Well the old lady mixed me up really up really nice
Added molasses
Added spice
But I jumped from her oven
Like a cat after mice
I am the gingerbread man

I ran past the farmer his doggies too
No one in the village knew what to do
So I made a little mischief
But wouldn't you?
"Yes" said the gingerbread man

catch me
catch me
If you can
Catch me I am the gingerbread man
the gingerbread man
I’m the gingerbread man
And you ain't gonna catch me

Well I came to a river, far and wide
No way to get to the other side
When the sly fox asked
if I’d like a ride
"Sure" said the gingerbread man ...

The sly fox had a wild grin
Asked If'n - I knew - how to swim
Then he took a big bite and I fell right in -
Uh oh! said the gingerbread man

So the moral of the story
For the faint of heart
Nothin comes from boasting
So don't you start
Humility is the higher art
Just ask the gingerbread man...

catch me
catch me
If you can
Catch me I am the gingerbread man
the gingerbread man
I’m the gingerbread man
And you ain't gonna catch me
Track Name: If Red Tastes Like Strawberry
IF RED TASTE LIKE STRAWBERRY

If red tastes like strawberry,
blue taste like blueberry
yellow tastes like I dunno
and orange is just an orange

then what about the kiwi
who’s oh so brown and fuzzy
right until you slice him open
and he’s green and juicy inside

Oh oh oh

If red tastes like strawberry,
blue taste like blueberry
whatcha call the purple berry
hanging on the vine

and what about bananas
who turn brown when they get rotten
then get cooked up into loaves of bread
that come out tasting fine

Oh oh oh

i’ve got a bowl of grapes right here
red and seedless for you dear
what’s that you say - it ‘twas unclear
you’d like to put them all into your mouth

I don’t think that’s gonna work
what’s more sounds like it’s bound to hurt
and you don’t want to get no
grape juice on your shirt

speaking of the mango
who’s pit sure likes to tango
when you try to cut around it
and you’re making such a mess

fruit that needs such peeling
is really unappealing
i much prefer the raspberry
who comes already undressed

Oh oh oh….


If red tastes like strawberry,
blue taste like blueberry
yellow tastes like, I dunno -
and orange is just an orange

well mix em all together
and throw em in a blender
then grab a straw for everyone -
but save a little for me
Track Name: Arithmetic Blues
ARITHMATIC BLUES

1 + 1 is 2
2 + 2 is 4
Subtract that number from itself
and you’ll have nothing more

you’re back to zero -
such a lonesome so and so
you’ve got the arithmetic blues -
dontcha know…

Move right through addition
straight into subtraction
get into long division
and learn about a fraction

One times anything
is gonna be anything every time
you’ve got the arithmetic blues
all up on your mind

I know it can get confusing
when negative numbers get involved
How am I supposed to know the square root of a round number
most of this stuff don’t make no sense at all

2x2 is 4
3x3 is 9
If a number ain’t divisible
it makes that number prime

11, 13,17 and 19 - just to name a few
you’ve got the arithmetic blues --
now what you gonna do?
Track Name: The Dessert Song
THE DESSERT SONG
I want some more dessert
Won't you give it to me please
In asking very nicely
Don't make me get on my knees

A slice of cake
A piece of pie
A scoop of ice cream on the side
Oh mamma
Some rainbow sprinkles chocolate goo
I promise that I’ll share with you
I'm really gonna

I want some more dessert

I want some more dessert
How bout we make a deal
Ill put myself to sleep
Without a scream or squeal

If you’ll just give me one more s'more
I promise I won’t ask for more
This evening
Let's whip up some creme brûlée
What a great idea mom Whaddaya say
(Can I light it in on fire this time)

I want some more dessert

My tummy kinda hurts
I don't want you to panic
I ate all the gummy worms
Cuz you said they were organic

I'm feeling kinda woozy
And it looks like my stuffed animals are
Dancing a jig

I promise I’ll listen next time
and i won’t drink a juice box after nine
Aw Mom I’ve got the spins
Track Name: Don't Ask Me Why
DON’T ASK ME WHY

Don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know
don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know

don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know

Don’t ask me why are there clouds in the sky
cuz i don’t know
Don’t ask me how do the birdies fly
cuz i don’t know

don’t ask me where do my dreams go at night
cuz i don’t know
i don’t know
i don’t know

but If you’ve got something you want to know
then ask me why and I’ll tell you so
like why am I angry
when am I mad
what do i need when I’m really really sad

don’t yell at me
if I accidentally stain mom’s new rug
and if a tennis ball should break the window
daddy don’t be so tough

Don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know
don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know

don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know

Don’t ask me why didn’t i make my bed
cuz i don’t know
don’t ask if I like multi-grain bread
cuz i don’t know
don’t ask if I’d like asparagus instead
cuz i don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know


and if you don’t get where I’m coming from
maybe you should listen more
because i’ve got wisdom beyond my years
even though I’m only four
but it’s hard for me to express myself
i don’t know many words
I just know that I feel what I feel when i feel it
even if it’s absurd

Don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know
don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know

don’t ask me why
cuz i don’t know
Track Name: Sittin on a Cloud
Sittin on a Cloud

ever get the feeling that you really should be holding on to someone
Grab your mama dadda grab your little brother baby sister too
Look below your feet you see the ground you’re standing on - is zooming away
Look above your head and see you’re floating in a sky of blue

WHEN YOU’RE SITTIN ON A CLOUD
JUST DANGLING YOUR FEET
SITTIN ON A CLOUD
NO WHERE YOU GOTTA BE
SITTIN ON A CLOUD
WAITIN FOR THE SUN TO RISE
SITTING ON A CLOUD
WAVING TO THE MOON GOODNIGHT

Now and then a rainy day you're stuck inside you’re feeling grey - it happens
Here’s a recipe for what it is exactly i think you should do
grab a thousand cotton balls glue them to the floors and walls - and then behold
sittin’ on a cotton ball cloud made especially for you…

WHEN YOU’RE SITTIN ON A CLOUD
WHISTLING A LITTLE TUNE
SITTIN ON A CLOUD
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AFTERNOON
SITTIN ON A CLOUD
WAITIN ON SUPPER TIME
SITTING ON A CLOUD
IN THE PLAYGROUND OF YOUR MIND ….

You’ve gotta know
there’s a place that you can find - cloud 9
grab my hand lemme take you there
You’ve gotta know
there’s a place that you can find - cloud 9
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9

Summertime you’re laying on your back and the green grass is tickling your neck
Squint one eye hold your hand above your head and try to catch a cloud
The sun is like a blanket and the rock is like a pillow and in that moment
the tingle in your spine whispers that you know what love is all about

WHEN YOU’RE LAYING ON A CLOUD
IN THE MIDDLE OF CENTRAL PARK
LAYING ON A CLOUD
TRYING TO LIGHT THAT SPARK
LAYING ON A CLOUD
IT’S A PLACE THAT YOU CAN FIND
LAYING ON A CLOUD
IN THE PLAYGROUND OF YOUR MIND

You’ve gotta know
there’s a place that you can find - cloud 9
grab my hand lemme take you there
You’ve gotta know
there’s a place that you can find - cloud 9
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9
