Track Name: All The Things That Roar
All the things that roar
Had a contest for the loudest
And the greatest of the roars

All the things that roar
There was a lion and a tiger,
A bear and dinosaur

All the things that roar
There was a dragon, a gorilla,
An alligator

All the things that roar
There was a walrus and a monster,
an elephant and more
And they went roar

And of all the things that roar
The one who shook the forest
From the treetops to the floor

And of all the things that roar
The one louder than thunder
Echoing from shore to shore

And of all the things that roar
The loudest was the smallest
A little girl named Eleanor
And she went roar
Track Name: Welcome To The World
We’ve been waiting for you for a long, long time
It’s so good to see you out in the bright sunshine
So welcome to the big blue merry-go-round
We’re overjoyed to show you around

Welcome to the world, welcome to the world
So much to do, so much to learn
But take your time, cause it’s your turn
Welcome to the world, welcome to the world
Welcome to the world, welcome to the world

Moon and stars, sun and shade
Licorice and lemonade
Friends and family near and far
All welcome you the way you are

Chorus

So welcome to the big blue merry-go-round
We’re overjoyed to show you around
Oh the people you’ll meet and the things you’ll see
We can’t wait to find out what kind of person you’ll be

Chorus
Track Name: Baby Makes Three
A long time ago
Your daddy was all alone
I was looking for somebody like your mommy
And I met her one day
In a pub down by the bay
And the rest as they say is history

Then we were two, then we were two
See what a little love together can do
Then we were two, then we were two
Me and your mommy together made two

We fell in love
Like a couple of turtle doves
And before too long we settled down and got married
We made a nest
And we thought it would be best
To add our own little chick to the family tree

Baby makes three, baby makes three
Now we got a happy little family
Baby makes three, baby makes three
Mommy and Daddy and baby makes three
Track Name: The Peek-A-Boo Waltz
You put your hands over your eyes
as around the room we spin
You might get a big surprise
when you pull them away again
but I bet you'll be seeing me smile
and I'll bet you'll be hearing me sing

Peek-a-one, peek-a-two
Peek-a-three, where are you?
Dancing the peek-a-boo waltz
Peek-a-one, peek-a-two
Peek-a-three, I see you
Dancing the peek-a-boo waltz

The room gets dark then it gets light
as we giggle around and sing
To the left and then to the right
up and down to the music we spin
we could dance around like this all night
peek-a-booing again and again
Track Name: That's The Life For Me
C F C
Don’t wanna sulk around with my head held down
G
That’s not the way I wanna be
C F C
I’d rather smile and see the smiles coming back to me
G C
That’s the life for me
C
That’s the life for me
F C G
That’s the life for me
C F C
I’d rather smile and see the smiles coming back to me
G C
That’s the life for me
(CFC,CGC)

Don’t wanna stay in my room when the flowers are in bloom
That’s not the way I wanna be
I’d rather be outside on a swing or a slide
That’s the life for me

Don’t wanna be a fool ‘cause the others think it’s cool
That’s not the way I wanna be
I’d rather listen to my heart ‘cause I know it’s smart
That’s the life for me
Track Name: Polar Bear In A Snowstorm
Polar bear, polar bear
Polar bear in a snowstorm
I can’t see you anywhere
Where are you, polar bear?

White goose, white goose
White goose in a snowstorm
Are you out there on the loose
Where are you, white goose?

Snowshoe hare, snowshoe hare
Snowshoe hare in a snowstorm
I can’t see you anywhere
Where are you, snowshoe hare?

Black crow, black crow
Black crow in a snowstorm
I can see you in the snow
You’re the only one that shows
I see you black crow

Track Name: High Up On A String
My blue balloon
I lost you too soon
My blue balloon
High up on a string

My blue balloon
Rises to the moon
My blue balloon
High up on a string

High up on a string
Over everything
High above the world on a string
High up on a string
That I was holding
High above the world on a string

My new white kite
Flies to a fine height
My new white kite
High up on a string

My new white kite
I hold with all my might
My new white kite
High up on a string

High up on a string
Over everything
High above the world on a string
High up on a string
That I am holding
High above the world on a string
Track Name: I'm Not Afraid Anymore
Dogs that howl at night
Icy winds that bite
Lightning flash and thundercloud

A fog horn from the docks
The ticking of a clock
I’m not afraid of those things now

Ghosts under my bed
Goblins in my head
Monsters behind my closet door

Eels and snails and snakes
Sharks in creeks and lakes
I’m not afraid them no more

I take those scary things
And I push them out the door
And I make sure that they are sure
They’re not welcome no more
I’m not afraid anymore

The deep end of the pool
The first day at my school
Shoes that scrape along the floor

Bullies on the bus
Who say they don’t like us
I’m not afraid of them no more

Falling out of trees
Slivers in my knees
Things that make me holler ow

Doctors shots and pills
Dentists and their drills
I’m not afraid of those things now

Creaky stairs and creeps that stare
And scary silence too
They used to make me shiver, shake
And think that I was through
But I was wrong, I’m twice as strong
As all those things combined
And if they’re out to frighten me
I don’t pay them any mind

Oh, I’m not afraid anymore, anymore, anymore
I’m not afraid anymore
Track Name: If I Cry
the things I want
I can't always get
and when I don't
I get upset

and if I cry
and you tell me
that it's allright
I will believe

and if you hold
me close and say
that it's allright
I will be brave

you're there to guide
me by the hand
but sometimes I
don't understand
Track Name: When I Grow Up
When I grow up, I wanna be a singer
When I grow up, and this is why
Because a singer sings the good songs
The ones I like, and that is why

When I grow up I wanna be a scientist,
When I grow up, and this is why
Because a scientist makes discoveries
The ones I like, and that is why

Chorus: When I grow up (2x)
Mmm mmm when I grow up
When I grow up (2x) oh yeah…

When I grow up I wanna be a farmer
When I grow up and this is why
Because a farmer drives the tractors
The ones I like and that is why

When I grow up I wanna be a teacher
When I grow up, and this is why
Because a teacher helps the children
The ones I like, and that is why

But for right now I want to stay a kid
A kid like me, and this is why
Because childhood won’t last forever
It’s what I like and that is why
Track Name: Chicken Lips
Chicken lips, chicken lips
Got hair like a frog and turtle hips
But what really makes me flip
She’s got them chicken lips
Chicken lips, chicken lips
Smells sweeter than a buffalo chip
But ain’t no feature can eclipse
Her lovely chicken lips

1. First time that I saw her
Was at the county fair
With a blue ribbon on her cage and
A red ribbon in her hair

2. Second time I saw her
She’s shucking corn out by the truck
she'd shuck and peck and shuck and peck and
peck and shuck and peck and cluck

Chicken lips, chicken lips
Got hair like a frog and turtle hips
But what really makes me flip
She’s got them chicken lips
Chicken lips, chicken lips
From her high heeled hooves to her little wing tips
Ain’t no way I can resist
Her lovely chicken lips

3. Third time that I saw her
She was cleaning out the stalls
I got a little more enamored
with every wheelbarrow haul

4. Fourth time that I saw her
was at the hot dog stand
she seemed like more than a dream for
this simple old farmhand

Chicken lips, chicken lips
Got hair like a frog and turtle hips
But what really makes me flip
She’s got them chicken lips
Chicken lips, chicken lips
Got skin like a fish and a kung fu grip
But what makes my heartbeat skip
Her lovely chicken lips
Ain’t no way I can resist
Her lovely chicken lips
But ain’t no feature can eclipse
Her lovely chicken lips
Track Name: Dream Big
Dream big, little darling
Dream big though you’re small
Dream big little darling
Listen to your heart’s call

When the moon blows the stars into the sky
When I turn out the light
When you're yawning and you're tucked in tight
I'll sing you goodnight

Dream big, little darling
Dream big, pure and strong
Dream big, little darling
Listen to your heart's song

May your soul fly up high among the stars
May you fear not a thing
May your feet dance upon this world of ours
I'll hold your hand and sing

Dream big, little darling
Dream big, day and night
Dream big, little darling
Let your heart be your light
Track Name: Everything Is New
everything is new 2x
everything is new today

everything I see
everything I hear
everything is new today

and I love it 2x
and I love it today

everything I feel
everything I smell
everything is new today

everything is new 2x
everything is new today

and I love it 2x
and I love it today
