  • Baby, baby anteater
    Baby, baby anteater

    Your nose and tail so long and pointy
    Your feet look like a panda bear
    I love you and everything you do
    you make me want to take a thousand trips to the zoo
    (and I will, too!)

    Baby, baby anteater
    Baby, baby anteater

    Riding around on your mama’s back
    She’s running around and you just sleep right though
    Clutched on tight, you’re such a funny sight
    Maybe you jump off and run around and night
    (well that’s something I’d like to see)

    Baby, baby anteater
    Baby, baby anteater

    When I see the anteater, she makes me smile and laugh
    Now that there’s a baby one, it’s better than a baby giraffe
    (and they’re pretty cute)

    Baby, baby anteater
    Baby, baby anteater, baby

  • There’s a lot of detours along the road
    But you gotta say beep beep
    And drive on through

    Be nice and wave and stop at the signs
    But don’t be shy, pass those detours on by

    Cause there’s a lot of detours along the road
    But you gotta say beep beep
    And drive on through

    Obey the traffic laws and look both ways
    But once you know where you’re going
    It’s gonna be okay

    Cause there’s a lot of detours along the road
    But you gotta say beep beep
    And drive on through

    You can stop and smell the flowers
    You can pitch your tent overnight
    You can make a pitstop anywhere
    But keep following your own light

    There’s a lot of detours along the the road
    But you gotta say beep beep!
     

  • Somewhere between I can’t and I want to
    There’s a place I like to go
    It’s a shaky, crazy, wild place I know
    But in the eye of that tornado

    Is a sweet little quiet spot with birdies that are singing
    And I’m soaking up the sun’s rays, and the school bell’s never ringing
    And I’m where I want to be
    The eye of the tornado is the place for me

    Getting to the top of the mountain
    Seems like a long, long way to go
    And that tiring trek can take forever I know
    But in the eye of that tornado

    Is a gentle place to rest with the friends that I like best
    And we’re having tea and cakes
    Watching boats sail on the lake
    And I’m where I want to be
    The eye of the tornado is the place for me

    Everything can seem too much almost all of the time
    I’m overwhelmed and need to know what’s mine
    But always in the middle there’s some calm that I can find
    The swirling wind just points the way to the peace inside my mind

    Somewhere between I can and I’m trying
    There’s a perfect middle ground
    It’s a tough place to settle down I know
    But in the eye of that tornado

    Is a sweet little quiet spot with birdies that are singing
    And I’m soaking up the sun’s rays, and the school bell’s never ringing
    And I’m where I want to be
    The eye of the tornado is the place for me
     

  • I had a rooster and the rooster pleased me
    Fed my rooster on the green berry tree
    The little rooster went cock-a-doodle-doo
    Dee doodlee doodlee doodlee doo

    I had a dog and the dog pleased me
    Fed my dog on the green berry tree
    The little doggie went woof, woof woof
    The little rooster went cock-a-doodle-doo
    dee doodlee doodlee doodlee doo

    I had a cat (meow, meow, meow)

    I had a birdie (whistle!)

    The little rooster went cock-a-doodle doo
    Dee doodlee doodlee doodlee doo!
     

  • I love the rain (plip plop)
    I love the rain (plip plop)
    I love the way it slides on down my windowpane
    I love the rain (plip plop)
    I love the rain (plip plop)
    And the way it makes the world go round

    I love the wind (woosh woosh)
    I love the wind (woosh woosh)
    I love the breeze that blows the leaves off all the trees
    I love the wind (woosh woosh)
    I love the wind (woosh woosh)
    And the way it makes the world go round

    I love the sun (aaaaah!)
    I love the sun (aaaaah!)
    I love the way it shines and brightens everyone
    I love the sun (aaaaah!)
    I love the sun (aaaaah!)
    And the way it makes the world go round

    I love ice cream (yum yum)
    I love ice cream (yum yum)
    It’s so cold and sweet it makes me wanna scream
    I love ice cream (yum yum)
    I love ice cream (yum yum)
    And the way it makes the world go round

    I love my friends (hi friend!)
    I love my friends (hi friend!)
    I love the way we play, the fun just never ends
    I love my friends (hi friend!)
    I love my friends (hi friend!)
    And the way we make the world go round
     

  • The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
    Down came the rain and washed the spider out
    Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
    And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

    The teeny tiny mouse went running along the floor
    Out came the cat and chased him out the door
    In came the mom and locked the cat outside
    So the teeny tiny mouse came running back inside

    The funny little monkey was swinging on a tree
    Out came a tiger and roared so scarily
    The monkey threw a coconut and bopped the tiger’s head
    And the funny little monkey went up the tree again

    The big fat hippo was wading in the lake
    Stepped in some mud and came upon a snake
    The snake said hiss and slithered on by
    And the big fat hippo was left high and dry

    The busy little bumblebee was buzzing on a flower
    Out came the spider with his web-spinning power
    He tried to catch the bee, but the bee got away
    And the busy little bumblebee went on his merry way

    The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
    Down came the rain and washed the spider out
    Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
    And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

  • Like a spinning top 
    Like a spinning top
    I’m going round and round like a spinning top
    I know I’m getting ready to drop
    At some point I just gotta stop
    But for now I’m spinning around like a spinning top
    Let’s spin!

    Like a jumping bean
    Like a jumping bean
    Man it’s such a crazy scene
    Jumping til my face turns green
    The jumpingest bean you’ve ever seen
    I’m jumping up and down like a jumping bean
    Let’s jump!

    Like a wiggly worm
    Like a wiggly worm
    All along the ground I squirm
    Digging up the earth so firm
    I’m wiggling for the short & long term
    But for now I’m wiggling around like a wiggly worm
    Let’s wiggle!

    Like a butterfly
    Like a butterfly
    Flying through the bright blue sky

    Spreading out my wings so wide
    Try to catch me flying by
I’m flying through the sky like a butterfly
    Let’s fly!

    Like a spinning top
    Like a jumping bean
    Like a wiggly worm
    Like a butterfly

     

  • Mommy can I have just one more cupcake
    Mommy can I have one please?
    Mommy they look so sweet and yummy
    I’m begging on my bended, band-aid knees

    One more, one more, one more  - please!

    Mommy can I stay just five more minutes         
    We’re having so much fun               
    This playdate can’t really be over           
    Even though the other mom looks totally done   

    Five more, five more, five more – please!       

    Mommy can I have just one piece of candy
    Mommy can I have one please?
    I know it makes me crazy like a lunatic
    but I sure do love my sweets

    One more, one more, one more – please!

    Well it’s never enough, no it’s never enough for me
    No it’s never enough, it’s never enough, it’s never enough for me

    Mom can I stay up just five more minutes
    I’m not tired in the least
    I could stay up all night til the morning light
    But I’ll settle for just five more minutes please

    Five more, five more, five more – please!
    Four more, four more, four more – please!
    Three more, two more, one more – please!
    One more, one more, one more – please!
     

  • Let’s reach for the sky
    Let’s reach for the ground
    Bend from side to side
    And all around
    Let’s give ourselves a hug
    And bend at the knees
    Let’s grow like a flower as tall as the trees
    Let’s clap our hands, and stomp our feet
    And give a little shout
    Now we can start our music time
    Let’s rock out!

  • Three tulips grow side by side
    One tall one small
    One full and wide

    Three tulips are the best of friends
    One red, one blue
    One yellow-hue

    Three tulips feel the frost arrive
    They drop, they hide
    They know how to survive

    Three tulips feel the spring return
    They burst up smiling
    One tall one small
    One sky high and climbing….

  • World of Wonder

    A drop of water may contain
    A multitude of miniscule
    Fragments of the drop of water
    Splashing round inside
    The multitude of miniscule
    Fragments of the drop of water
    Contained therein

    A grain of sand may contain
    A thousand sparkling bits of glass
    Reflecting all the light contained
    Within the thousand sparkling bits of glass
    Inside a tiny grain of sand

    A nebula may contain
    A million stars exploding
    In a gaseous cloud of colors
    A billion light years from the nebula
    That contains a million stars exploding

    The fingernail may contain
    The secret to existence
    In its cracked and dirty surface
    In its simple mundane shell
    That we nibble, gnaw and clip away

    The world of wonder is fleeting
    Get a good look while you can
    Hold a mirror up to a mirror and
    See the infinite stretch out before you
    It’s easy if you try
    The world of wonder is right before your eyes
