Track Name: Metamorphosis
Caterpillar, caterpillar turn into a butterfly
Caterpillar, caterpillar turn into a butterfly
Butterfly, butterfly fly away, fly away
Butterfly, butterfly fly away home

Tadpole, tadpole turn into a froggy
Tadpole, tadpole turn into a froggy
Froggy, froggy hop away, hop away
Froggy, froggy hop away home
Track Name: Burris the Bat
Burris was a bat, and he lived in a barn.
Way up in the rafters where it’s always warm.
Unlike other bats, Burris had a little quirk.
Burris was afraid of the dark.

Almost every bat loves to stay up late.
The dark is the perfect time to echolocate.
Though our friend, Burris could catch bugs with the best,
Night is when he wanted to rest.

Burris couldn’t sleep,
The dark gave him the creeps.
So let’s turn on the nightlight for Burris

Turn on the nightlight for Burris the bat
He’s frightened of the dark,
But there’s nothing wrong with that.
He could fall asleep in five second flat,
If we’d turn on the nightlight for Burris.
Track Name: It's True
Did you know the tallest waterfall in the world is underwater?
It's true. It's true.
Did you know that there's a place where it didn't rain for 14 years?
It's true. It's true.
Did you know that butterflies taste their food with their feet?
It's true. It's true.

And it's true the birds can sing
And so do you, It's such a good feeling
And trees grow tall up to the sky
And so do you, you don't even have to try
The sun gets up every day
And so do you, so come on let's play
Let's play

Did you know that there's a tree that's over 5,000 years old.
It's true. It's true.
Did you know that there's about a quadrillion ants on our planet.
It's true. It's true.
Did you know that each day is a little bit longer than the day before.
It's true. It's true.
Track Name: I'm Flying
If I could fly I would spend all day flying.
If I could fly I would look up at the sky and see myself flying.
If I could fly I would sing a song about how I am flying.
If I could fly I would find a bird and say "Hey, we're both flying."
If I could fly I would only eat food that was good for flying.
If I could fly I would shout to the world:
I'm flying
I'm flying
I'm flying
I'm flying

If I could fly don't you think I would spend every second of the day flying.
Track Name: Down by the Bay
Down by the bay
Where the watermelons grow
Back to my home
I dare not go
For if I do
My mother will say:

Did you ever see a bear, combing his hair
Down by the bay?

Did you ever see a monkey, dancing all funky
Down by the bay?

Did you ever see a moose, kissing a goose
Down by the bay?

Did you ever see a llama, wearing pajamas
Down by the bay?
Track Name: So Small
Once, I was so small
You could breathe me in like a speck of dust
And once, I was so small
I could fit into your sock, I could sit inside your pocket
And once, I was so small
I could float in the palm of your hand

Now I am big, even though I was once a kid
You'll be big too, bigger than 4 foot 2
We all grow grow grow from our head down to our toes
You're growing now I don't know how
Makes my head spin now let's all sing wow

Wow, wow, wow, woooooooow

Once, you were so small
I could drink you down like a grain of sand
And once, you were so small
You could swim in a single drop of rain
And once, you were so small
You could float in the palm of my hand

Now you are big, even though you are still a kid
You'll grow even more, bigger than 4 foot 4
We all grow grow grow from our feet up to our nose
You're growing now I don't know how
Makes my head spin now let's all sing wow

Wow, wow, wow, woooooooow
Track Name: I'm Gonna Eat
I’m gonna eat a peach
Even though it might be out of reach
I’m gonna eat a peach

I’m gonna eat a pear
I’ll eat it all, but if you want some I’ll share
I’m gonna eat a pear.

I'm gonna eat a waffle
Even if it tastes really awful
I'm gonna eat a waffle.

I’m gonna eat a shoe
I know that’s a silly thing to do
but I’m gonna eat a shoe

I’m gonna eat a bug
I just saw it crawling on the rug
so I’m gonna eat a bug

I’m gonna eat the moon
Look up there one day real soon.
'Cause I’m gonna eat the moon.

I’m gonna eat the sun
I think it sounds like a whole lot of fun
I’m gonna eat the sun.

I’m not feeling very good
That’s because I ate everything I could
now I’m not feeling very good
Track Name: Peace Like a River
I've got peace like a river
I've got peace like a river
I've got peace like a river in my soul

I've got peace like a river
I've got peace like a river
I've got peace like a river in my soul

I've got love like an ocean
I've got love like an ocean
I've got love like an ocean in my soul


I've got love like an ocean
I've got love like an ocean
I've got love like an ocean in my soul

I've got joy like a fountain
I've got joy like a fountain
I've got joy like a fountain in my soul

I've got joy like a fountain
I've got joy like a fountain
I've got joy like a fountain in my soul
Track Name: Up With Daddy
Down, down, down, down
Always on the ground
I live on my knees
I see your shoes are checkered Vans
That's cool Spicoli
I learn to stand on my own too slowly

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees

Fe fi fo no!
Don't send me to bed
You're watching basketball and calling all your friends
But I'm not sleepy
I swear that I'm not sleepy
I rub my eyes but I'm not sleepy
I (yawn) sleepy

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees

My dad's so tall
He sees it all
When I'm up there
The air is rare
I fly

From my nest
This world's the best
So please excuse me
While I kiss the sky

Down, down, down, down
Still down on the ground
Still down on my knees
I see your shoes still checkered Vans
Still cool Spicoli
I learn to stand on my own still slowly

I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be up with daddy now
I wanna be high like the buzz of the bees
I just wanna see what everyone else sees
Track Name: Wotchado
Well, I've got a dad he's a really good dad but sometimes he gets mad.
I've got a sis, she screamed while I was swinging and she made me miss.
I've got a bro he says I'm short and I'll never grow

Well all of these people, they're my family.
I'm stuck with them and they're stuck with me
But it's just like my daddy told me back when I was two:
I may not always like what you do but I'll always love you.

Well, I've got a mother sometimes she confuses me with my brother.
I love my gramps but I worked really hard and he paid me with stamps.
I've got a grammie one time she looked at me and she called my Tammy

Well all of these people, they're my family.
I'm stuck with them and they're stuck with me
But it's just like my daddy told me back in ought-two:
I may not always like what you do but I'll always love you.

I know I'm not perfect, I make mistakes too
I tracked mud in the house, I wrote on the wall, knocked over my mom's stew.

I've got a dad, he's a really good dad, but sometimes I make him mad.
I've got a sis, one time I got mad and hit her with my fist.
I've got a bro I remember that time I stepped hard on his toe.

Well all of these people, they're my family.
I'm love them and they love me
But it's just like my daddy told me back in '72:
I may not always like what you do but I'll always love you.
Track Name: Monkey on my Shirt
There's a monkey on my shirt and he's playing guitar
a monkey on my shirt he's playing guitar
I've got a monkey on my shirt he's playing guitar
There's a monkey on my shirt and he's playing guitar
If you've never seen a monkey playing guitar
Then you've never seen my shirt

Let's all play the guitar, play the guitar
Let's all play the guitar, play the guitar

There's a robot on my shoe and he's beating the drums
I've got a robot on my shoe and he's beating a drum
a robot on my shoe he's beating the drums
There's a robot on my shoe and he's beating the drums
If you've never seen a robot playing the drums
Well put your ear to my shoe

Let's all beat on the drums, beat on the drum
Let's all beat on the drums, beat on the drum

There's a t-rex on my lunch box playing kazoo
There's a t-rex on my lunch box he's playing kazoo
I've got a t-rex on my lunch box playing kazoo
There's a t-rex on my lunch box playing kazoo
If you've been listening to this song
then you should know what to do

Let's all play the kazoo, play the kazoo
Let's all play the kazoo, play the kazoo

There's a monkey on my shirt and he's playing guitar
There's a robot on my shoe and he's beating the drums
T-rex on my lunch box playing kazoo
Now we've got our instruments
we should make a band
Yeah we've got our instruments
let's make a band
Let's all play in the band

Let's all play in the band, play in the band
Let's all play in the band, play in the band
Let's all play in the band, play in the band
Let's all play in the band, play in the band
Track Name: Evil Doctor Ladybug
My son has a pillow pet
He's a ladybug
That ladybug he has a name it's
Evil Doctor Ladybug

Evil Doctor Ladybug
He's not evil, that's just his name.
Evil Doctor Ladybug
I love him just the same.

Evil Doctor Ladybug
He's cuddly, and he's cute.
Evil Doctor Ladybug
And also he is mute.

Evil Doctor Ladybug
He spends all day in bed
He's got black spots but mostly
He's all red

Evil Doctor Ladybug
He's my friend
Evil Doctor Ladybug
This song is at the end.
Track Name: Twinkle ABC Teddy Bear
My best friend's my teddy bear
I take him with me everywhere
He is fuzzy with brown hair
Oh how I love my teddy bear
My best friend's my teddy bear
I take him with me everywhere
