Track Name: Harv
I know this hippo named Harv
He lives in a river called the Congo
He spends his days cleaning his teeth
While little tiny fishes swim under his feet

He goes plop plop plop
On the river rock
It’s a real good thing
He wears his water socks

Now Harv is kind of a big hippo
He has a real hard time finding clothes
His swim trunks are always too small
And they just won’t let him go into the mall

He goes plop plop plop
On the river rock
It’s a real good thing
He wears his water socks

Now Harv loves the sunshine
And laying out on the shore
He has real pretty purple skin
That he loves the other hippos to adore

But, today Harv forgot to put Sunscreen under his arms
He laid out on his back, and got a sun burn on his arm pits

poor poor harv (what were you thinking Harv?)

He goes plop plop plop
On the river rock
It’s a real good thing
He wears his water socks

He goes plop plop plop
On the river rock
And he’ll never forget
To wear his sun block!
Track Name: Clap Your Hands
Peanut butter has jelly
And the sand has the sea
A Twinkie has its filling
And an Oreo its cream

Just clap together your hands
And stomp your feet on the floor
The world is better when things come together
Just clap your hands some more

A cupcake has its frosting
And a pizza has its cheese
A paper has its pencil
And a popsicle needs to freeze

People have each other
Like socks have their friends
Peas have their pods
And salt and pepper do blend

Just clap together your hands
And stomp your feet on the floor
The world is better when things come together
Just clap your hands some more

Its easy and its fun
To do while your singing along
Put your hands together
And clap to the beat of the song

Clap Clap Clap Clap Together Your Hands
Stomp Stomp Stomp Those feet on the floor

Just clap together your hands
And stomp your feet on the floor
The world is better when things come together
Just clap your hands some more

Just clap together your hands
And stomp your feet on the floor
The world is better when things come together
Just clap your hands some more
Clap your hands some more (And Stomp Your Feet)
Track Name: Come Along With Me (featuring Marlana Sheetz)
I'm gonna walk around the block
And see what is there to see
Yesterday I saw a squirrel climbing up a tree
And I know this pond behind this lawn
It has fish you would not believe
If You grab a hold my hand, you could come along with me

Would you come along with me?

Come Along yeah Come Along Come Along with me
Come Along yeah Come Along Come Along with me

If I come with you, would you then come with me?
There's a book at the library I really want to read
or we could find a lizard, I'm not so into fish
Or we could build a mud house, so i could cross that off my list

Would you come along with me?

Come Along yeah Come Along Come Along with me
Come Along yeah Come Along Come Along with me

It is always fun to have company
plus I like lizards too so of course I'll come with you

And if the rain it falls while we're outside
I have got an umbrella to keep us warm and dry

Would you come along with me?

Come Along yeah Come Along Come Along with me
Come Along yeah Come Along Come Along with me

Just Come along with me.
Track Name: Cowboys (You Don't Have to be From Texas)
You don’t have to be from Memphis to be a King
You don’t have to be Elvis to learn to sing
You don’t have to be John Wayne to Ride
Just saddle on up and give it a try

Because you don’t have to be from Texas to be a cowboy

Just Sing

Yee-Ha
Woo-Whoo

You’ll be happier if you do

You don’t have to be Neil Armstrong to walk the moon
Just put your mind to it, you’ll be doing it soon
You don’t have to be Lance to ride
Just get out on those two wheels and try

Because, you don’t have to be from Texas to be a cowboy

Just Sing

Yee-Ha
Woo-Whoo

You’ll be happier if you do


You don’t have to be perfect to do your best
But learn everything you can before that next test

And Sing

Yee-Ha
Woo-Whoo

You’ll be happier if you do

Now you’re a cowboy (or a cowgirl)
Whatever suits

YEE-HA!
Track Name: King of Ketchup
You'll never find me far from a bottle

It's salty it's sweet
It goes on anything
It's red like beets
And tastes so good to me

Cause - I am the king of ketchup
I am the king of ketchup baby
I am the king of ketchup
I am the king
And don't say maybe

It goes on eggs,
it goes on roast
It goes on french fries
and it goes on toast (Toast!?)
It goes on pickles
It goes in stew
It goes under buns
It is necessary at BBQs

Cause - I am the king of ketchup
I am the king of ketchup baby
I am the king of ketchup
I am the king
And don't say maybe

Bridge:

I don't care if it gets on my fingers
I don't care if it gets in my clothes
If I could go swim in a pool if it
I'd use French fries to plug my nose.


Cause - I am the king of ketchup
I am the king of ketchup baby
I am the king of ketchup
I am the king
And don't say maybe

Remember if you get stuck in the mustard you can always ketchup

Cause - I am the king of ketchup
I am the king of ketchup baby
I am the king of ketchup
I am the king
Of Ketchup
Track Name: Teressa
Teressa Tree Frog
lives in a Willow Tree
She Ribbets at spiders
and she talks in her sleep

Teressa likes parties
She thinks dressing up is neat
So she shades her eyelids
And she paints her feet

She says your feet are so important
For getting you around
If you’re going to hop from branch to branch
Be careful when you get down
Be careful when you get down

Teressa likes cupcakes
and wearing gold for flare
She loves brushing her teeth
because she doesn’t have any hair

She has beautiful brown eyes
They are a freckled pair
And when she raises her eyebrows (those eye lids)
The bullfrogs they do stare
The bullfrogs they do stare

She says your feet are so important
For getting you around
If you’re going to hop from branch to branch
Be careful when you get down
Be careful when you get down

And She goes

Ribbet – Ribbet Ribbet – Ribbet Ribbet – Ribbet Ribbet

She says your feet are so important
For getting you around
If you’re going to hop from branch to branch
Be careful when you get down

She says your feet are so important
For getting you around
If you’re going to hop from branch to branch
Be careful when you get down
Be careful when you get down
And Clean them when you Get Down
Track Name: Monsters
There’s no more monsters underneath my bed
I turned the lights on and saw that they weren’t there

The sun had gone to bed
And every light in the house was low
I had a calm and relaxing feeling
it was off to bed I go

Cause there’s no more monsters underneath my bed
I turned the lights on and saw that they weren’t there

And I know if I start feeling board
I can always count some sheep
And I know with my favorite blanket
I can always get some sleep

Cause there’s no more monsters underneath my bed
I turned the lights on and saw that they weren’t there

That’s when I saw it
It was leering over me
It was dark and scary
Big and harry
It was Staring down at me
I didn’t know just what to do
So I screamed
I held my breath
I closed my eyes
I turned on the lights

(But it was only a shadow from two socks and one shoe / reflecting off the street light coming through the window of his room)

Cause there’s no more monsters underneath my bed
I turned the lights on and saw that they weren’t there
Track Name: Bumble
This here friends is the story of Bumble and How he got his sting

Bumble wasn’t a bird
And he wasn’t a fly
He wasn’t a mosquito
he had some stripes
Colored Yellow and gold
He was slow like slug
And had fur like a mole

Bumble's wings were small
His body was wide
The flies called him Lumpy
made Bumble want to cry
The wasps, tried to bite him
And said lazy Bee
You're a big old whimp


When he flew - He made a Buzzing sound
Buzz buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz all around

Bumble wasn't fast and he wasn't mean
he had no stinger and he had small wings
He had no friends of which to speak
and everyone made fun of his pudgy physique
so he set off alone on a quest to think.

Bumble flew into the desert
he found a cactus with thorns
It was the thing he needed
for the bullies to leave him alone
He flew towards the cactus and turned when it was near
And he plunged a thorn right into his own fuzzy rear

When he flew - He made a Buzzing sound
Buzz buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz all around

His stinger was strong
It worked like a dream
When a wasp tried to bite
Bumble gave him a sting
when the flies called him names
Bumble stung like a dart
And said be nice for a change

When he flew - He made a Buzzing sound
Buzz buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz all around

So remember if you see Bumble Bee flying around
don't you swat and don't scream
cause he'll only sting you if you choose to be mean

When he flew - He made a Buzzing sound
Buzz buzz Buzz Buzz Buzz all around

And that friends is how Bumble got his sting
Track Name: Oh Oh
Grab that apple and taste it
Try a lemon too
You’ll never know until you try
And they both are good for you

Sing:

Oh Oh
Ee Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh


Pet that puppy gently
And pet that Kitty too
If you don't pull their hair
They'll wantta be friends with you!

Sing:

Oh Oh
Ee Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Squish that Play-Do between your fingers
Squeeze the Sand between your toes
Lean in close and smell that pretty flower
Then laugh when you blow your nose
Then Laugh when you blow your nose
Laugh when you blow you nose

Sing:

Oh Oh
Ee Oh
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
Track Name: Cool Things
Now some folks will will try to tell you
Its better to be tall
But I can think of a couple a reasons
it's cool being small

You see things around you
that others just don't see
Like the underside of door handles
and sea shells on the beach

Ba Ba Ba du Ba buh
Ba Ba Ba Du Baaaa

In the Long Run - You'll Grow taller
In the short Run - Grab a stool, why bother
Worrying about the things you got coming to you?
Think of the cool things that you can do!

You can crawl inside of cupboards
And Under table tops
Reach inside the dryer
And easily pet the dog

Ba Ba Ba du Ba buh
Ba Ba Ba Du Baaaa

In the Long Run - You'll Grow taller
In the short Run - Grab a stool, why bother
Worrying about the things you got coming to you?
Think of the cool things that you can do!

There's Happy Meals
and Kids Menu's
Crazy colored balls
that you can bounce in and out of
but not if you're tall
There's Crayons at restaurants
and awesome booster seats
And delicious chewable vitamins
But they don't make those for me

In the Long Run - You'll Grow taller
In the short Run - Grab a stool, why bother
Worrying about the things you got coming to you?

In the Long Run - You'll Grow taller
In the short Run - Grab a stool, why bother
Worrying about the things you got coming to you?

Think of the cool things that you can do!
