Track Name: City Kitty
Pancho, he's a kitty cat
Sleeps all day, he eats kitty snacks
What do you when you're only a kitty cat?
Do you have friends in the zoo?
Do you go run in the sun little kitty cat?
What do you feel when you're blue?

Pancho, he's a kitty cat
Sleeps all day on a kitty mat
What do you do when you're only a kitty cat?
Do you have places you go?
Where do you run when it rains little kitty cat?
How do you feel about snow?

Of all of the animals
You must be the loveliest
You must be my city kitty cat (Repeat)

Pancho, he's a kitty cat
Sleeps all day he eats kitty snacks
What do you do when you're only a kitty cat?
Do you go run in the sun little kitty cat?
What do you feel when you're blue?

Solo

Of all of the animals
You must be the loveliest
You must be my city kitty cat (Repeat)

Meow meow meow (Repeat)
Track Name: Antarctica
Turtles don’t live in Antarctica
There’s no warm sand in Antarctica
If I were a turtle and I liked the sand
I would never go to Antarctica

Flamingoes don’t live in Antarctica
Their legs would grow ice in Antarctica
If I were a flamingo and my legs were warm
I would never go to Antarctica

Some like it chilly
Some like it warm
If you don’t like rain clouds
Stay out of the storm

Bees would never live in Antarctica
There aren’t any flowers in Antarctica
If I were a bee looking for a flower
I’d be out of luck in Antarctica

A lion wouldn’t live in Antarctica
His paws would get cold in Antarctica
If I were a lion and my paws were cold
I just might be in Antarctica

Some like it chilly
Some like it warm
If you don’t like lightening
Stay out of the storm

Solo

A penguin would live in Antarctica
She’d be happy as a clam in Antarctica
If I were a penguin, happy as a clam
I’d bet you I’d be living in Antarctica

A whale could go swimming in Antarctica
The water’s just right in Antarctica
If I were a whale, going for a swim
I would go straight to Antarctica

Some like it chilly
Some like it warm
If you’re scared of thunder
Stay out of the storm
Track Name: Imagination
Can you walk an elephant?
I bet you can
Stomp your feet
And play pretend

Can you raise your trunk up to the sky
Really high
Alright!

Can you swing like a monkey from tree to tree?
Swing your arms
Just be free!

Can you swim like a fishy does in the sea?
Swim with your friends
That’s it you got it!

You can play and play and play, it never ends
Imagination is your best friend! (Repeat)
Track Name: Smile All Day
If the only thing that I could do
Was laugh all day and smile too
I'd be fine I'd never be blue
I'd laugh all day and smile with you

Let's laugh ok!
Let's smile all day (Repeat)
Track Name: Swimming Upstream
Yes I'm a baby fishy from a stream in St Louis.
I was meant for bigger things my mommy told me

So one night I swam the way to old New Orleans
Bye bye to the river now I have these ocean dreams

Promise I'll be coming home...
Promise I'll be coming home to you...to you

(Sam) Hi I'm Sam!
(Kareem) Hi Sam, I'm Kareem! Wanna swim with me?
(Sam) That sounds awesome! Let's go!
(Kareem) Ok!

Today I found the ocean all these friends and all this fun
We swam on the waves and in the early morning sun
But in the night time it got cold, I got a little sad
No one there to hug or kiss me where are mom and dad?

Promise I'll be coming home...
Promise I'll be coming home to you...to you

So back upstream I'm swimming yes I told all my friends
I'm still meant for bigger things I'll wait till I'm full finned

Promise I'll be coming home...
Promise I'll be coming home to you...to you

Here I come I'm swimming got a smile cause I'm glad
I miss my stream, the baseball team, I miss mom and dad

I'm swimming up stream
Said by to Kareem
(Kareem) Bye!
He's a dolphin
Chocolate ice cream (whoa there's a bear!)
Hope my rooms clean (whoa a tug boat!)

(Sam) I'm home!

Simultaneously:

(Dad) - Junior! Wanna go to the baseball game tomorrow? It's gonna be a great game!
(Mom) - Oh junior welcome home it's great to see you we missed you so much! Come on in, get warm and I'll make you dinner!
Track Name: Yawn a Song
When I get home from school
All I wanna do all I wanna do
Is dance really fast
(Diddidly da do de deet)
Play on my kazoo
(Doooo Doooo)

When I get home from school
All I wanna do all I wanna do
Is play guitar
(Bing bong boom bar)
Sing a song for you
(Doooo Doooo)

All day long I hum a song
Hum hah da da da!
All day long I dance my feet
Deedleedlee da da deet


When I get home from school
All I wanna do all I wanna do
Is dance really fast
(Diddidly da do de deet)
Play on my kazoo
(Doooo Doooo)

When I get home from school
All I wanna do all I wanna do
Is play guitar
(Bing bong boom bar)
Sing a song for you
(Doooo Doooo)

All day long I hum a song

All day long I dance my feet

When I get tired
I yawn a song

All day long I yawn a song (Repeat)
Track Name: Beans
I've got a secret
I shouldn't tell
But If you were wondering
It might explain that bad smell

I love beans
Red and white ones
Black and brown ones
I love beans

My mom makes me eat them
She says they'll make me smart
My friends don't like them
I say they're good for my heart

I love beans
Frozen green ones
Speckled kidneys
I love beans

What could be better
Than beans in the morning?
Beans for dinner and beans for dessert

All I can think of
Is beans in the morning
Beans at noon time
And beans in my dreams
I love beans

Beans for a birthday and on thanksgiving
And when it's raining I bake a bean cake
I don't want a shower I want beans in the bathtub
Beans to dry off with a bean book for bed
I love beans
Track Name: Let's Rock!
When I say let's rock!
You're gonna rock
Cmon let's rock around

If you play guitar
You'll be a star
Cmon let's play guitar!

Here we go we're rockin' round
Rock to the cities, rock to the towns
Rock to get lost, to get found let's rock!
Let's rock!

If you play the drums
You'll need your thumbs
Cmon let's play the drums

If you play the bass
Put a smile on your face
Cmon let's play the bass

Here we go we're rockin' round
Rock to the cities, rock to the towns
Rock to get lost, to get found let's rock!
Let's rock!

If somebody told me I couldn't rock
I'd talk to the doc get a prescription to rock!
If somebody told me I couldn't sing
I'd swing on a swing that's a great place to sing!

Here we go we're rockin' round
Rock to the cities, rock to the towns
Rock to get lost, to get found let's rock!
Let's rock! (Repeat)
Track Name: Benjamin the Eagle
I went up to the top of the hill
At the break of the early morning sun
I climbed a tree and I did see
My friend Benjamin the Eagle
His wings are brown and his head is white
And he sleeps all day and he sleeps all night
And I had to say...

Wake up sleepy pants, wake up
Wake up do a dance, get up
Wake up! Get up! You got a lot of flying to do!
So...

Spread your wings
Let them sing
flip flap (flip flap!)
Flip flop (flip flop!)
Stretch your tosies , smell the rosies
Stritch stretch sniff snoff sniff
Are you up yet? Are you up yet?
Ohh...

Wake up sleepy pants, wake up
Wake up do a dance, get up
Wake up! Get up! You got a lot of flying to do!
So...

Spread your wings
Let them sing
flip flap (flip flap!)
Flip flop (flip flop!)
Stretch your tosies , smell the rosies
Stritch stretch sniff snoff sniff
Are you up yet? Are you up yet?
And...

Brush your teeth
Chicka chicka cheesh
Tie your shoes, loopdee doopdee doo
And don't forget the lunch that I made for you

(Aaron) Here Benjmin, it has a bologna sandwich, and carrots and a juice box and everything y..
(Benjamin snores)
(Aaron) Benjamin? Did you go to sleep again? Ohh!

Wake up sleepy pants, wake up
Wake up do a dance, get up
Wake up! Get up! You got a lot of flying to do!
So...

Spread your wings
Let them sing

Flip flop (flip flop!)
Stretch your tosies , smell the rosies
Stritch stretch sniff snoff sniff
Are you up yet? Are you up yet?

Brush your teeth

Yawn
(Aaron) I got tired Benjamin. What do you say we take a a nap? Let's take a nap
Track Name: For Longer
You make light
You make song
Tomorrow brings
Another day of love

Just how long
Can you sleep
Hold you close
So that you're next to me

Stars all wait in the sky
Moon shines soft on your eyes
Darkness alone we are together
Memories stay here forever
For my love for longer

Oh sweet dream
Angel true
So much love
I have to give to you
So much time goes by so let
Fireflies give you their
Sweet sweet sweet
Their sweet sweet sweet glow

Stars all wait in the sky
Moon shines soft on your eyes
Darkness alone we are together
Memories stay here forever
For my love for longer

Sometimes the water gets cold
Some things nobody knows and
Sometimes the sun doesn't show his face
Baby don't race
Take your time
Cause it's a slow slow slow slow
A slow slow slow climb

Stars all wait in the sky
Moon shines soft on your eyes
Darkness alone we are together
Memories stay here forever
For my love for longer (Repeat)
