LYRICS

KANGAROOSTER

GET DRESSED BOOGIE

In the morning when I get out of bed. It's hard to get going. I feel like playing instead. Mom says, "Come on, get ready to go!" I do the get dressed boogie from head to toe.
Chorus
I do the get dressed boogie. I do the get dressed boogie.
Boogie, boogie, boogie and dressed I get. I boogie up high.
I boogie down low. I do the get dressed boogie from head to Toe
.
Pick out a shirt, pull it over my head. I put my right arm in & my left one then… I give my whole body a shake, shake shake. I do the get dressed boogie so I won't be late.
Super hero undies are what I like to wear. I get them from my top drawer by standing on a chair. I jump into action with a pow, bam, boom. I do the get dressed boogie so I can leave soon.
Chorus

Slide up my socks, slip into my pants, then I go around & start to dance. I bend down to put on my shoes, Velcro not laces it's easy to do.
Then I'm all dressed & I run to the door. Mom's on the phone & she's wiping up the floor. She says," 0h honey, you're so quick today. One more chore and we'll be on our way. HEY!
Chorus

 

DINOSAUR ROAR

Chorus
If I were a dinosaur, I wouldn't be afraid anymore. 
I'd just give my dinosaur roar, "ROAR"
If I were a dinosaur.

If I were a dinosaur I'd be really big. Bigger than a monster or any older kid. Any kind of bully would run away from me, even the sharks in the deep blue sea. 
Chorus
If I were a dinosaur I'd be really loud. Louder than a thunderstorm, high up in the clouds. No fireworks in the sky, could ever make this dinosaur cry.
Chorus
If I were a dinosaur wouldn't that be cool? I'd go swimming in a prehistoric pool. But wait a minute, come to think, If I were a dinosaur I would be extinct.
Chorus

OUCH!

Chorus
Ouch, Ouch, Ouch Ouch
Ouch, Ouch ,Ouch, Ouch

Don't bump your head when you get out of bed. Don't bite your tongue when your'e chewing gum. Don't fall down, running around. 'Cause if you do you're gonna say…..
Chorus
Don't skin your knee, climbing a tree. Don't stub your toe when you're on the go. Don't slip & fall running down the hall 'cause if you do your'e gonna yell…..
Chorus
Now these words of caution don't forget. But just in case you do you better & get a little upset. Here's a sure cure that you must heed. Just make a little yell it will make you feel swell. Just give a little shout it will wipe away your doubt. Just give a little holler if you're hot around the collar. A sure cure yes indeed! OUCH!!

SPIDERS DON'T DRINK CHOCOLATE MILK

Chorus
I have lots of questions I ask every day, like how? What? Why? Or When? 
In oh so many ways. If Spiders don't drink Chocolate Milk and choo choo trains don't fly. I'd really like to know all the reasons why?

How come I can't catch my shadow? What makes the sky so blue? If the world is really spinning why can't I feel it move? Where do hiccups really come from? What makes a firefly's light? Can I have freckles just like Johnny? What makes the stars so bright?
Chorus
Where do the bees get their buzz? What makes the sun so hot? Do snowflakes fall in the summertime? Where did the leopard get his spots? Is it tomorrow night? Why is ice so slippery?
And if tall buildings have stories, do they have happy endings? I've always wondered that.
Chorus
Try and answer all my questions. I'll ask them one at a time. If spiders don't drink chocolate milk and choo choo trains don't fly……oh why?

 

PLAY WITH ME

Chorus
Play with me. Play with me. I'll be nice & I won't fight please play with me.
Play with me Play with me. We'll be friends until the end. Please play with me.
Last time that we played together, I didn't mean to hit. Next time I get mad at you, I'll use my words instead.

Chorus
You can be the leader, then I'll be the leader. We can take turns. Grown-ups call it getting along and we're beginning to learn.
Chorus
I'll play with your toys. You can play with mine. We'll have lots of fun. We'll play all night till the moon shines bright. Then, we'll play with the morning sun. Everybody now….
Chorus
Play with me. Play with me. I'll be nice & I'll try not to fight. Please play with me.
Play with me. Play with me. We'll be friends until the end please play with me.

RETURN OF THE ITSY BITSY SPIDER

Same words as the original… adapted, rockin" roll

I'VE GOTTA POCKET

I've gotta pocket on my left. I've gotta pocket on my right. That make two in front, and I've got one behind. Now I have a safe place to put all my things….on my way, on my way, on my way…I'm glad I've gotta pocket.

One day I walked through the woods and I found me some rocks. I didn't have a pocket so I put them in my socks.
Walking back to the car, they made it seem really far. Ouch !On my way, on my way I wish I had a pocket.

As I was walking down the street, lot's of treasures to be found. I didn't have a pocket I looked all around so I held them in my hands. I could barely stand. On my way, on my way I wish I had a pocket.

Repeat verse one ….

KANGAROOSTER

I have a friend that I'd like you to meet. He's 10 ft. tall, kind of shy, with two big feet. A pouch in front & feathers on his wings, my friend the Kangarooster doesn't think he can sing but he sure can dance. He goes..
Chorus
Hop, hop, hop cock-a-doodle do. Hop, hop, hop, cock-a-doodle do. Hop, hop, hop, cock-a doodle do I'm a Kangarooster and I'll dance with you.

As you know, Kangaroosters are really very rare. As he hop-flies down the street people stop and stare. My friend the Kangarooster learned to hold his head up high. He's got a new dance I think you ought to try. And it goes like this….
Chorus
So if you ever feel that like there's nothing you can do or maybe other people just don't look like you. Remember Kangarooster and you'll start to dance. You'll find there's really more to life if you take a chance.
Come on let's dance.
Chorus

LULLABY FOR MEAGHANN

Meaghann can you hear me, singing soft & sweet? 
A lullaby for Meaghann. 
Close your eyes and you'll sleep. 

Each new day brings it's tears and laughter. 
With every dawn there's a way to open doors and see what's behind them. 
You're not alone come what may. 
Meaghann can you hear me singing soft and sweet?
A lullaby for Meaghann close your eyes and you'll sleep.

Beans are healthy to eat,a good source of protein.  
Eat 'em fresh, frozen or canned, not to many you might get gas.

Snap, soy, kidney beans in your belly.  My favorite one is a bean named jelly. There are Lima, pinto too, baked beans are bar-b-qued.  
Great northern white, lentil or black, magic beans by a boy named Jack. Chick peas are garbanzo beans, fry 'em in a pan they're refried beans, refritos frijoles!  Did you know that jumpin' beans come from Mexico?

READ A BOOK

Words & Music by Jodi Simon Koplin ( Copyright 2011)     
I can climb a mountain, go sailing on the sea. 
Diving in the ocean, I can climb a tree.

I can go to Treasure Island or maybe Neverland

Or meet Captain Hook by reading a book

Chorus: 
Take a look, look, look and read a book  (2x's)

I can learn about science and geography 
Language arts and math & world history 
Learn how to drive a car and how to play guitar 
I can learn how to cook by reading a book

         
I can have adventure with out leaving my room. 
Learn about the world or blast off to the moon. 
If you want some peace and quiet find your little nook 
Curl up with a blanket and read a book

Chorus

STOP, DROP & ROLL

Words & Music by Jodi Simon Koplin ( Copyright 2011)


There are lots of lessons that we must learn.  
Don't play with fire you might get burned 
Electricity is not a toy it's not to play with girls and boys.  
Smoke detectors let you know if there's a fire then you can go. 
You've got to know where to go, and how to stop, drop and roll.

Chorus:                  
Stop, drop and roll   Stop drop and roll  
If there's a fire you've got to know where to go and how to stop, drop, and roll.
       
If there's smoke crawl on the floor. 
Follow the escape route to the door. 
Don't go back in no matter what.  
Find your meeting place then call 911. 
Fire prevention is the key discuss it with your family.  
Then you'll know where to go & how to stop, drop and roll.

Firefighters want you to know where to go 
& how to stop, drop & roll, how to stop, drop & roll, how to stop, drop & roll.

HAPPILY EVER AFTER

Go to bed sleepy head, make a wish upon a far away star. 
Don't worry what tomorrow may bring.  Together our heart will sing…

Chorus:        
Sail away on your dream ship through the clouds, 
Over rainbows past the moon and dream happily ever after. 

All tucked in you feel safe and warm 
Sweet dreams go to sleep , Teddy will protect you from any harm 
A kiss goodnight & I'll hold you close. 
Forever & always I'll love you so

Bedtime stories & lullabies, call the sand man to close your sleepy eyes. 
This is how the story always ends.
