Track Name: Let's Sing A Song
Let's sing a song
With our friends around us
Let's sing a song
Together with our friends
Let's sing a song
And make some music
'Cause music makes us happy to be alive!

Let's clap our hands....
Let's stomp our feet....
Let's spin around...
Fly like a bird...
Track Name: All the Animals
All the little birds fly
All the little birds fly
When the little birds fly
This is what they say:
Tweet tweet tweet tweet, tweet tweet
Tweet tweet tweet tweet, tweet tweet
Tweet tweet tweet tweet, tweet tweet
This is what they say

...fishies, elephants, mice, penguins, kangaroos, children...
Track Name: Little Bird
Little bird little bird
Fly through my window
Little bird little bird
Fly through my window
Little bird little bird
Fly through my window
Buy molasses candy

Fly through my window my sugarlump
Fly through my window my sugarlump
And buy molasses candy
Track Name: The Fox
Oh the fox went out on a chilly night
He prayed for the moon to give him light
He'd many a-mile to go that night
Before he reached the town-o

He ran till he came to the great big bin
The ducks and the geese were put therein
he said, A couple of you are gonna grease my chin
Before I leave this town-o

He grabbed the grey goose by the neck
He swung the little ones over his back
and he didn't mind their quack quack quack
or their legs all dangling down-o

Old mother Pitter Patter jumped out of bed
She opened the window and put out her head
She cried, John John the grey goose is gone
and the fox is on the town-o!

Well John went up to the top of the hill
He blew his horn both loud and shrill
The fox he said, I better flee with my kill
'Cause they'll soon be on my trail-o

He ran till he came to his cozy den
There were his little ones, eight nine ten
and they said, Daddy daddy you better go back again
'Cause it must be a mighty fine town-o

The fox and his wife, without any strife,
Cut up the goose with a fork and knife
And they'd never had such a supper in their lives
And the little ones chewed on the bones-o
Track Name: I Like the Rhythm
I like the rhythm I like the beat
the way it sounds when I stomp my feet

[stomp stomp stomp]

...shake your hands high!
shake your hands low!
shake them in the middle
and around we go!

I like the rhythm
I'm a rhythm-maker
That's how it feels when I shake my shaker

[shake shake shake]

...shake your hands high!
shake your hands low!
shake them in the middle
and around we go!

I like the rhythm
I like to sing
I like to hear your bells go ring ring ring

[ring ring ring]

...ring your bells high!
ring your bells low!
ring them in the middle
and around we go!

I like the rhythm
I'm in the band
That's how it feels when i clap my hands

...shake 'em up high!
shake your hands low!
shake them in the middle
and around we go!
Track Name: Mole in the Ground
i wish i was a mole in the ground
if I was a mole in the ground
I would root them mountains down

I wish I was a river in the spring
If I was a river in the spring
I would hear my darling sing

I wish I was an owl in the night
If I was an owl in the night
I would glide on silent flight
Track Name: Water is Wide
The water is wide
I cannot cross o'er
And neither have
i wings to fly
Give me a boat
that can carry two
and both shall row
my child and I

Our loves shines bright against the storm
Turns darkest night to brightest day
Turns raging seas to perfect calm
the clearest lamp
to light our way

'cause the water is wide.....
Track Name: The Grow Song (duet with Abby Bowen)
Plant a seed
Watch it grow
Give it sun
Give it rain

And then what do you know?
it'll grow!

grow grow grow grow
grow grow grow grow
grow grow grow grow GROW
