Track Name: Let's Start Dancing
I like dancing
And I know you do
Let's start dancing
Now I've got a question for you

What does it take
To make you shake?
What does it take
To make you shake?
What does it take
To make you shake?
What does it take
To make you dance?
To make you dance!

Do you need a drum
To help you find the beat?
If you had a drum
Could you move your feet?

How about that bass?
Well it plays down low
It makes the song move
And now we can groove!

(Chorus)

Do you need a piano?
Did you say yes? *YES!*
Well I play the piano
And I'll try my best.

Oh there're so many, so many, so many
Instruments I've seen
But sometimes the best thing for dancing
Is a tambourine!
Like this!

(Chorus)
Track Name: Best Pillow in the World
Best Pillow in the World
Best Pillow in the World
Best Pillow in the World
Best Pillow in the World

(repeat!)

Well my first pillow was alright
But it used to keep me up at night
Toss and turn, toss and turn
That pillow was too firm

My second pillow was OK
But I don't have too much else to say
It was too lumpy, too lumpy
I used to wake up grumpy

But now all my troubles have gone away
I got a brand new pillow today
Not too thin and not too thick
My new pillow is so perfect!

(Chorus)

Well I wasn't happy with number three
That pillow was never good too me
It was too soft, too soft
Put my head down and it got lost

And number four out the door
Soon as I saw it I was sure
It was too ugly, too ugly
Polka dots? They always bugged me!

But now all my troubles have gone away
I got a brand new pillow today
Not too thin and not too thick
My new pillow is so perfect!

(Chorus)

Well it's not too thin
It's not too thick
It's perfect
It's perfect

Not too lumpy
Not too lumpy
I don't wake up grumpy anymore!

And it's not too firm
Not too firm
I don't toss and turn
Don't toss and turn

It's not too thin
It's not too thick
My new pillow is so perfect!
My new pillow is so perfect!
Track Name: Jump Up and Down
Well I'm not so into being Tired
When I jump up and down I feel so inspired
For a half a second I can touch the sky
Then the ground says hello and my feet say goodbye!

And I Jump up and down
Jump up and down
Jump up and down
Jump up and down
(repeat!)

So come on everybody, let's jump together
When we Jump and Down we're light like a feather
No matter if you were feeling low
Bounce to the beat and let's go go go

(Chorus)

Every time I see, that face wear a frown
I wanna help you find your smile in the lost and found
So put on your sneakers and give it a try
For a half a second I can touch the sky
then the ground says hello and my feet say goodbye!


(Chorus)
Track Name: Rutabaga

You've got so much flavor, so much flavor,
Got so much flavor rutabaga
So much flavor, so much flavor
So much flavor, rutabaga

I said, "Green tomato? You're so sweet but,
I don't want you to eat." I need a rutabaga
Right now, not later
Give me rutabaga, Rutabaga!

Rutabaga for breakfast
Rutabaga for brunch
Rutabaga for dinner
Rutabaga for brunch

I need a root in my soup I need a root in my stew,
I like rutabagas, how about you?

(Chorus)

Come here waiter!
Come here water!
Yeah, I need a rutabaga

Come here, waiter
Come here waiter
Yeah, I need a rutabaga

There's something missing
Something missing from my plate
My compliments to the chef,
This all tastes great, but

I need
I want
You don't Understand
I've got to have it!

(chorus)
Track Name: Broccoli Yet
I don't like broccoli yet
But maybe one day
I don't like broccoli yet
But one day I may

There're plenty of other vegetables out there
That are friends of mine
So broccoli... broccoli,
Let's just give it some time

Well broccoli
You know you look like little trees made of wood
And the last time I checked
Little trees didn't taste that good

If a broccoli floret
Is as good as it gets
Well I'm sorry broccoli
But I'm not ready yet

(Chorus)

Well now I understand
That it might not be your fault
I might have had a bad taste in my mouth
Or you could have been cooked in too much salt

And for that reason
I'm prepared to make you deal
I promise I'll try you again, broccoli
At some other meal!

But for now....
(Chorus)

I got so many kinds of blocks
If you want to keep your feet warm

And I've even got 100 keys
That fit 100 locks

I've got 17 rocks
36 fishes
3 birthday cakes
Yeah i collect wishes
1 shaggy dog
2 indoor cats
And uh, let me show you my baseball caps

(Chorus)

Do You Like to read? I've got so many books
You can color in some or learn how to cook
Open one up and give it a look
See you learned something good
And that's all that it took....

I've got 8 sunglasses
And I got 4 kites
When I ride to the park I ride 1 of 2 bikes
5 mirrors
For 5 reflections
And watch where you step that's my cactus collection...

(Chorus)

My mom's got a room full of fine antiques
I once tried to collect all the days in the week
My recorder collects all the words that I speak
Everything I collect is just so unique

Only 1 piano
But 88 keys
Even my sandwich has 3 kinds of cheese
My garbage can collects my debris
And at school I collect only A's and B's

(Chorus)
Track Name: Blue Sky Moon
Can you see the Blue Sky Moon
Up above in the afternoon
Nighttime will be coming soon
But I've still got my Blue Sky Moon

Well I was riding on my bike
Pedaling down the street I like
Sky was blue and the sun was bright
Then I saw the moon to my delight

And I was sitting up in a tree
Strumming my ukulele
And from my branch well I did spy
The moon up in that blue blue sky!

(Chorus)

Well I was on my knees and hands
Finding seashells in the sand
I heard a plane fly up above
I looked and saw the moon I love

And I was napping on a hill
Summer day and the air was still
And when I woke, to my surprise
I saw the moon there way up high

(Chorus)
(Guitar Solo by Mike!)

You're never looking for it when it happens
But sometimes it's there
The moon in the daytime
And I love that!

(Chorus)
Track Name: Dilly Beans
Gotta be a bean, gotta be a dilly bean
Gotta be a bean, gotta be a dilly bean

Gotta be a bean, gotta be a dilly bean

Well I like pickles,
(And I like beans!)
And when we get together,
We're dilly beans!

Gotta be a bean, gotta be a dilly bean, yeah!

Well I opened up the 'frigerator looking for a pickle
Yeah there were dillls, kosher dills, and umeboshi plum pickles
But have a seen a string bean
in a pickle jar?
Long skinny and green
pickle superstar!

Gotta be a bean gotta be a dilly bean yeah.
(Chorus)

The first dilly bean i ate made willy nilly silly
Yeah I can eat them room temperature and I can eat 'em chilly
Better than candy, better than ice cream
Oh I how love to eat dilly beans

Gotta be a bean gotta be a dilly bean yeah

(Chorus)
Track Name: Tambourine
My tambourine, is the most worn out
Tambourine you've ever seen
It's lost a few, of the jingle jangle janglies
That used to shine and sparkle and glean

But it doesn't really matter what it looks like
No it doesn't really matter to me
'Cause when you close your eyes and listen to me shake it shake
It's just about the prettiest thing

I love my tambourine

My tambourine, isn't very new
In fact it's fifty years older than me
It's been kicked around, left up in an attic
Far from any people who sing

But it doesn't really matter if it's old
No it doesn't really matter to me
'Cause when you close your eyes and listen to it shake it shake
It's just about the prettiest thing

You want to hear
What I can play
You know the rhythms I play can be quick or be so slow

You want to dance
Well what does it take?
Is it listening to my favorite tambourine shake?
Track Name: Farmers' Market
Gonna go go go go
Down to the farmers' market
Gonna go go go go
Down to the farmers' market

Gonna ride ride ride ride
My bicycle and park it
When I go go go go
Down to the farmers' market
Down to the farmers' market

Well it's Saturday Morning and i just woke up
Want eggs on my plate and juice in my cup
And Bread (real bread!) that was baked today
And I like flowers gonna get a bouquet

Better hurry up to the farmers' market
Better hurry up to the farmers' market

(Chorus)

Well in springtime there's asparagus
And rhubarb too if you're adventurous
In summer time there's summer squash
And in the fall and winter, well there's winter squash

(Chorus)
Track Name: Tuck Me In
See that bed over there
With the blankets scattered everywhere
You could get under those
And that would be alright

But for a really good night,
For a really good night
You've got to find somebody
To tuck you in tight

I'm tuckered out
Tuck me in
I really wanted a blanket
Under my chin

Tuck me in so I can go to sleep 'cause
I'd like to be counting sheep

Last night the cold froze my toes
I lost my sheets and I couldn't find my pillow
And that wasn't cozy at all

I like to dream BIG
I never dream small
And if you don't tuck me in
I won't be dreaming at all!

(Chorus)
