Track Name: High Roller
I got a footrest and a seatbelt, a tray for all my snacks
I’ve got diapers, wipes and cheerios in the pocket round the back
I’ve got a one mom-power engine to take me for a spin
And I got the whole thing riding on 3.5 inch rims

I’m the kind of kid that’s a natural born high roller
You can see it in my eyes, man I was born a rock’n’roller
I’m the kind of kid every kid would like to be
I’m cute as a button man how could you not love me

Everybody stops to look at me and smile
Cause when I step out on the block I step out in style
I got a onesie with a dinosaur, I got a big old floppy hat
I got a paci and a juice box ‘cause I’m crazy like that

Sometimes things get crazy back home at my crib
Sometimes I eat breakfast wearing nothing but a bib
That food starts a’flying, I’m a touch out of control
I’m living on the edge but that’s just the way my stroller rolls
Track Name: Dinosaur in My Backyard
I woke up this morning and guess what I found
A big broken branch and leaves on the ground
Well momma says sometimes branches just fall
But I know better that’s not it at all

There’s a dinosaur living in my back yard
He’s bumping into trees and eating people’s cars
I’ll tell you all again like I did from the start
There’s a dinosaur living in my backyard

On the side of the house over by the garbage pails
I found four big dinosaur scales
Momma says those are just garbage can lids
But sometimes moms aren’t as smart as their kids

Last night he must a have made an attack
Because I found the bones from his dinosaur snack
Momma says that’s nothing but a shovel and a rake
But sometimes even moms make mistakes

I just found a big black dinosaur egg
It’s starting to hatch and I can see its legs
Dad says that’s just his barbeque
But I wouldn’t go near that thing if I were you
Track Name: Ants in My Pants
I put a piece of chocolate in my pajama pocket
And then I went upstairs to take a nap
When that chocolate melted a million ants smelled it
And they crawled up my leg into my lap

So I jump up and down, I wiggle all around
Everybody’s telling me to chill
I know this isn’t good, I’d chill out if I could
But I’ve got ants in my pants and I can’t sit still

I went and told my mom exactly what went on
As I bounced around I asked her what to do
She said oh, honey-baby that sugar made you crazy
No more sweets before nap time for you

It made my mother laugh when I jumped in the bath
I must have been quite a sight to see
The part that really got her was when she fell into the water
With the million red ants and me
Track Name: Sippy Cup
Playgroup starts at ten
I want to see all my friends again
But mom is moving extra slow today
We grab some toys and a snack for me
We pile into the SUV
But we’ve got to make a stop along the way

Mommy’s got her grown up sippy cup
We go to Startbucks to fill it up
They put the lid on the top just like the one I use
I don’t know what they put inside
But it makes her eyeballs open wide
No thanks I think I’ll stick to apple juice

I used to think that when I grew up
I wouldn’t need a sippy cup
But now I’m starting to think that that’s not true
I look around at these older kids
They don’t seem to need cups with lids
But for some strange reason
All these grownups do
Track Name: Things Change
When I was a kid I was a shy kid too
When I was a kid I was a shy kid just like you
My shyness didn’t last too long
Now I’m up here singing these goofy songs
But when I was a kid I was a shy kid too

Things changed for me, things will change for you
We’ll all change a little bit before this song is through
Things changed for me, things will change for you
Change is what we do

When I was a kid I was a short kid too
When I was a kid I was a short kid just like you
Now nobody calls me small
‘Cause I‘ve grown to be over 6 feet tall
But when I was a kid I was a short kid too

When I was a kid I was bouncy kid too
When I was a kid I was a bouncy kid like you
I got older and I calmed down now I hardly ever bounce around
But when I was a kid I was a bouncy kid too

When I was a kid I was purple kid too
When I was a kid I was a purple kid like you
These days I’m bright green, I’m the greenest dude you’ve ever seen
But when I was a kid I was a purple kid too

When I was a kid I was a weird kid too
When I was a kid I was a weird kid just like you
These days I’m still acting strange
I guess some things are just slow to change
When I was a kid I was a weird kid too
Track Name: Everybody Clap Your Hands
Everybody clap your hands, everybody stomp your feet
Come on, come on everybody sing along
‘Cause when you do it sounds so sweet

Everybody jump up and down
We’re jumping up and down we’re bouncing all around
Everybody jump up and down

Everybody tap your toes
Tap your toes, yes I do mean those
Everybody tap your toes

Everybody flap your wings
Flap your wings like a sparrow in the spring
Everybody flap your wings

Everybody pat your knees
Pat your knees please, everybody please
Everybody knock your knees

Everybody blink your eyes
Blink your eyes all you goofy gals and guys
Everybody blink your eyes

Everybody wave to a friend
Wave to a friend ‘cause this song’s about to end
Everybody wave to a friend
Track Name: Blah, Blah, Blah
There’s a whole bunch of grownups at our house tonight
They’re sitting in the living room, I’m hidden out of sight
I sneak up behind them to hear what they say
They go on about stocks and bonds and the price of gas these days

But all I hear is blah, blah, blah, blah . . .

I get bored with that so I sneak back down the hall
My sister’s on the phone again with her brand new boyfriend Paul
I’m quiet as a mouse as I listen through the door
They’re smooching back and forth about who loves who more

My brother is hogging the TV again
He’s watching some sports show on ESPN
They’re talking about some quarterback who’s gonna be a star
They compare the way he throws to some old guy named Favre

I get so bored it makes me want to shout
So I try to talk about it to my faithful old dog Scout
But all he hears is blah, blah, blah, blah . . .
Track Name: Little Bird
Little bird, little bird what do you see
Up in your nest up on top of that tree
I’m waving to you little bird do you see me
Little bird, little bird up in that tree

Little bird fly, little bird sing
You go tweet, tweet, tweet as you flap those wings

Little bird, little bird up in the sky
I love to watch you fly so high
You flap your wings like a wave goodbye
Little bird, little bird up in the sky

Little bird, little bird you sound so sweet
Singing your song up and down my street
Tweetle-eetle-eetle-eetle-eet, tweet, tweet
Little bird, little bird you sound so sweet
Track Name: Polite Pete
I was just a young man then, no more than 23
I was first mate on the finest merchant ship upon the sea
When old Blackbeard fired upon us until we nearly sank
He said to me, “Come join our crew or else you’ll walk the plank”

I thought of my dear mother then at home and safe on shore
A pirate’s life is not the kind of life she raised me for
So I said with my best manners to old Blackbeard and his crew
“I’ll join your band but understand there are some things I won’t do.”

Now they call me Polite Pete the Pirate
And I sail the seven salty seas
I rob and I loot, I pillage and I plunder
But I always say thank you and please

My hair is long, one eye is gone, my teeth are turning green
I’m the roughest, toughest meanest looking lad you’ve ever seen
Just a single sight of me can make a grown man cry
I’ll steal your gold but truth be told I wouldn’t hurt a fly

Thank you for your gold
May I please have some more
Would you kindly walk the plank for me
And swim yourself to shore

It’s been twenty years now that I’ve lived the pirate’s life
I’ve sent all my riches home to my two kids and my wife
They’re the apple of my one good eye, I see them when I can
We drive around in a solid gold Toyota mini-van
Track Name: Mama Llama
I'm a mama llama and my baby's name is Cass
She loves to feed on fresh green grass
She loves to spit and she loves to flirt
She loves to roll around in the dirt

I love her, I nudge her, I clean her and I cuddle
I feed her, I lead her far away from trouble
I do it all for love and I do it all because
I'm a mama llama . . .
And that's what a mama llama does

If you're not in love then you haven't seen her yet
She's got tall pointy ears her nose is long and wet
She's got big brown eyes and long shaggy hair
She could win a ribbon at any county fair

I’m a mama llama and she’s my little girl
She’s about the cutest little thing in this whole world
I do it all for love and I do it all because
I’m a mama llama and that’s what a mama llama does
Track Name: Run Bunny Run
Here comes my baby brother with a carrot in his hand
Watch out baby bunny ‘cause he’ll catch you if he can
He doesn't want to hurt you he just wants to be your friend
Still it's really not something that I would recommend
You better run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run

Run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run
I know you can do it ‘cause you’re the fastest one
You better run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run

Watch out baby bunny there's an eagle in the sky
I think he must have spied you with his sharp eagle eye
You better run for cover because I've got a hunch
That hungry bald eagle wants to have you for his lunch
You better run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run

B-U-N-N-Y you better R-U-N you fuzzy little guy
You better run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run

Hey there baby bunny the time has come today
When all your bunny buddies will come on out to play
There’ll be bunny races and bunny tag and chase
There’ll be bouncing baby bunnies all over this place
You better run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run bunny, run
Track Name: Mama Don't Allow
Mama don’t allow no hand clapping around here
Mama don’t allow no hand clapping around here
We don’t care what mama don’t allow
We’re gonna clap our hands anyhow
Mama don’t allow no hand clapping around here

Mama don’t allow no foot stomping around here

Mama don’t allow no finger snapping around here
