Story

I love cats and many cats love me, too!

Lyrics

I’d Like To Be A Kitty Meow, meow. . .Meow, meow! Sometimes I think I’d like to be a kitty. Sometimes I think I’d like to be a kitty. I’d like to be a kitty girl. I’d climb a tree and chase a squirrel. I’d pounce upon the autumn leaves that swirl. I’d curl up in a furry ball and purr If I were a kitty girl. Sometimes I’d sniff the evening air And looking into space I’d stare Seeing things that only kitties see are there. I’d stretch and sleep and run. I think it would be fun. Sometimes I think I’d like to be a kitty! I’d like to be a kitty boy. I’d have a gopher for a toy. I’d play the games that all the kitty boys enjoy. I’d twitch my tail whenever I’m annoyed, If I were a kitty boy. I’d lick my paws and wash my face, Then find myself a mouse to chase. I’d be the king of kitty boys around this place! I’d stretch and sleep and run. I think it would be fun. Sometimes I think I’d like to be a kitty. I’d play all day beneath the sun. I really think it would be so much fun. Sometimes I think I’d like to be a kitty...

Story

An ecology song for Earth day. Our Mother Earth is precious. It's the only one we've got so we should take care of it! And besides, it's where I keep all my stuff!

Lyrics

The Earth Is Your Mama The Earth is your mama, don’t you treat her mean. Everybody’s got to keep their room real clean. The Earth is your mama, better treat her right. All us little children better stop this fighting right now! Hey! Hey! The Earth is your mama no matter who you are. We’re all floating on a rock that’s spinning ‘round a star. If you try to run away from home you won’t get very far. You’re acting like you think you don’t know who you really are. (refrain) The Earth is your mama in a special kind of way. The Earth is your mama. Do you see what I’m saying? Now, the Earth is your mama in a very special way… The Earth is your mama, now for heavens sake. We’ve gotta clean this mess up or her heart will surely break. She’ll be crying so hard she’s gonna shake and quake. We’ve got to love our mama now before it gets too late. Hey! Hey! The Earth is your mama-don’t be treating her bad. It’s time to put our toys away ‘cause mama’s getting mad. The Earth is our mama-we’ve been making her sad. Don’t you know that she’s the bestest mama that we’ll ever have. (refrain)

Lyrics

The Chili Pepper Cha Cha Billy the chili was a dancing chili pepper. So was Milly Chili. They were both fancy steppers. All the other veggies living in the ‘frigerator Believed no one was greater When those chili peppers danced. Billy and Milly would dance a tangy tango, And everyone would cheer when they’d do the grand fandango. But the hottest dance they knew was the chili pepper cha cha, The chili pepper cha cha is a hot cha cha cha! (refrain) The hottest dance they knew was the chili pepper cha cha. The chili pepper cha cha is one hot cha cha cha. The hottest dance they do is the chili pepper cha cha. The chili pepper cha cha is one hot cha cha cha! Billy and Milly could dance a saucy samba. They’d do a tasty twist, the rumba and the mambo. But the hottest dance they knew was the chili pepper cha cha. The chili pepper cha cha is a hot cha cha cha! (refrain) Billy chili pepper and Milly chili pepper Got all the other vegetables up dancing in a dish. They did that chili pepper cha cha ‘till they melted into salsa! We put it on our tacos and it tasted so delish’! All the other veggies did the chili pepper cha cha, The chili pepper cha cha and they danced around the dish. They chili pepper cha cha’d, they melted into salsa. We put it on our tacos and it tasted so delish’! (One, two, hot cha cha! One, two, hot cha cha!) (One, two, hot cha cha! One, two, hot cha cha!) (One, two, hot cha cha! One, two, hot cha cha!) (One, two, hot cha cha! Chili pepper cha cha!)

Story

It's true! But I'm the only one he talks to. He's shy.

Lyrics

My Teddy Bear Can Talk! Mt teddy bear can talk to me! He whispers in my ear. My teddy bear is shy and hopes that no one else can hear. So he only talks to me. I’ll tell you what he’s saying. Right now he says he wants a cookie and that he feels like playing! My teddy bear can really talk to me! I know you think I’m kiddin’. But he’s the one who told me where the cookie jar was hidden. And teddy bears can’t climb too well or open up the cupboard door. So he asked me if I’d get him a couple of cookies more! My teddy bear can talk to me! I’ll tell you what he said. He said he’s feeling sleepy and that he wants to go to bed. He’s telling me that tomorrow he’s got teddy bear things to do. Oh, one last thing he wants to say, He says he loves you too! One more thing he’s telling me He says he loves you too! (My teddy bear can really talk! Well, it’s true!

Story

One summer I worked playing music at the WIld Animal Park Zoo in Escondido, Ca. That year the most popular thing at the zoo was Samurai the baby tiger. He was very cute so I wrote this song about him.

Lyrics

Baby Tiger Way back in 1984 on a winter morn, down there in southern Californ’, a little baby tiger was born. . . It was one of those days when we found ourselves with not too much to do, So my mommy and my daddy took us all down to that wild animal park zoo, Where the giraffes and the rhinos and the Nubian goats are all just running around loose. And when my daddy was looking at the hippopotamuses, he got “goosed” by a wandering goose! But over there, behind the window-that’s where everybody’s eyes were. There was the cutest little guy named “Masurai,” the brand new baby tiger! (refrain) Oh, everybody loves the baby tiger, everybody loves the baby tiger! Everybody loves the baby tiger! Everybody wants to take him home! Everybody wants to take him home! Well, he looked so cute in his fuzzy tiger suit, I guess I just fell in love. And I wanted to cuddle and hold him so bad, I don’t know what I was thinking of, But I snuck behind to the back of his cage and when the zookeeper wasn’t lookin’, I lifted the latch and I opened the door and I reached right down and I took him! (refrain) Well, I grabbed that baby tiger by the scruff of his neck and I stuffed him inside my shirt. And I made for the exit where the zookeeper was waiting, and with a funny, little smile and a smirk, He said, ”Son, your baby-tiger-taking-scheme, it just isn’t going to work.” Then he held up a big juicy T-bone steak and that baby tiger went berserk, inside my shirt! (refrain) The zookeeper took the baby tiger from me and he put him back together with his mom. And he gave me band aids for my scratches and my cuts and told me this is where the baby tiger belongs. He said, “:Son, I hoped you learned a good lesson, ’cause taking baby tigers is wrong! But this time I’ll let you go ’cause everybody knows that’s the reason why we always sing this song! Oh! (refrain)

Lyrics

Tarkus Goes To Dog School This is the story of Tarkus the dog. His coat is kind of scruffy like rust-colored fog. He went to the park with his master to jog. But he jumped into the lake and tried to bite frogs. And then he jumped in the mud and he rolled like a hog. And after we bathed him the drain became clogged! We dried him real well and we fed him some grog. He ate like a pig and then slept like a log! Tarkus is a dog who doesn’t always obey, No matter what you do or no matter what you say! He won’t sit up. Roll over, or stay. Sometimes when you call him he runs the other way! All he ever does is eat, sleep and play. We’re going to teach him manners and to act the right way! We’re sending him to dog school next Monday! (“Yeah, we’re sending you to dog school, Tarkus, next Monday!”) ...Woof, woof...

Lyrics

The Snack I was really, really, really, really, really hungry, So I asked my mom if I could have a snack. She gave me a stick of celery to hold me off till dinner, But I just frowned and then I gave it back. (refrain) But my mama shook her head. She looked at me and said, “Is there something else you’d rather have instead?” I thought for a moment, then I said: I’d rather have a ten colored rainbow on a hamburger bun, With a piece of a cloud and a slice of the sun. Or some moon flavored pancakes with some syrup from mars, With a sky-flavored milkshake and a big bowl of stars!” (refrain) “Ahhhh, I’d rather have bunny ears on bagels with hummingbird beaks, Or frog belly pie and some butterfly cheeks, Or kitty-ear cookies or salamander soup, Or lizard-lip licorice or puppy-tail stew.” (refrain) “I’d like to eat a big roasted rock or some bumble bee burritos, Or a fried cuckoo clock sprinkled with mosquitoes, Or dog-nose doughnuts or nanny goat nachos, Or French fried ice cubes or tiger-toe tacos!” My mama shook her head and she looked at me and said, “Are you sure there isn’t something else you’d rather have instead?” I thought for a moment then I said: “Ahhh, mama! Could I have a nice stick of celery, please!”

Lyrics

The Silly Lullaby Nighty night night, nighty nighty night night… N’,n’,n’, night night, nighty night, nighty night night. Nighty night night, nighty nighty night night… N’,n’,n’, night night, nighty night, nighty night night. It’s bedtime, I think I saw you yawn! Take forty winks and dream until dawn. Hit the sack! Come on, take a snooze. Take a nice long nap-but take off your shoes! To the land of Nod, to the land of slumber, Saw some logs-make some slumber lumber! Catch some Z’s-sleep like a log. Without any fleas-sleep like a dog! (refrain) It’s time for sleeping. It’s time to doze. Count some sheep ‘n take a nice repose. Put on your jammies and blow your nose. Get under them blankies and stretch your toes. Hit the hay beneath a smiling moon because another day will be here soon. Crawl under them covers. Turn out the light. Say “goodnight” to your mother. Say nighty night night! (refrain)

Lyrics

The Night Night Song We go night night now-jammies on, Brush our teeth-it won’t be long. We go night night now-time for bed. Lay your pillow beneath your head. We go night night now-say “good night.” Leave the hall light-it’s all right. We go night night now-say your prayers. Time for dreaming. Daddy cares. We go night night now-blankies warm. The sun will rise tomorrow morn’. We go night night now-yes we do. Close our eyes. I love you. We go night night now-yes we do. Say good night. I love you. Yes I do. I love you… (We go night night now...we go night night now… We go night night now…)

Lyrics

Arizona Sky Me and my horse out in the desert tonight, A full moon rising slow behind some cactus. We listen to the warm wind come rolling down the canyon, As we dream beneath the Arizona sky. The lonesome coyote's call is sweet music to my ears. The shining stars are diamonds in the night. And with the morning sun, it’s time to have some fun. We ride into the Arizona sky. We ride off into the Arizona sky. The bad guys never catch us ’cause my pony he can fly. When they’re just about to get us he leaps into the sky. We soar above the crimson clouds-leave our troubles far below, And then we lope along a rainbow to a pasture that we know. We sail right through the silver rain, through moonbeams across the stars, Then my pony gallops home again, landing in our own backyard. Me and my horse had an adventure last night, But now it’s time to dress and go to school. But when the evening sky grows dim I know that soon again, We’ll dream beneath the Arizona sky. Me and my pony we will fly… We will fly across the Arizona sky.

Lyrics

Sleepy Time Lullaby When the moon rises high-sleepy time lullaby. When shining stars twinkle in the sky, I sing this lullaby. So listen to me sing this little song, The night time won’t seem, oh, so very long. The sandman sends you extra special silver moonbeams So you can drift off into dreams, You’re going to have the sweetest dreams. Ponies fly in the sky when you’re closing your eyes. That’s all you really need to do to make your dreams come true. It’s time to rest your sleepy little head. It’s time for me to tuck you into bed. Tomorrow there will be a brand new morning sun, So dream away my darling one. Dream away my darling one. Sweet dreams darling...Sleepy time lullaby Sweet dreams darling...Sleepy time lullaby
