The Hat Song 03:37
I put this hat upon my head And suddenly I’m feeling like a pirate On the open sea A pirate just climbed into me I put this hat upon my head And suddenly a pirate said, Arrrgh! A pirate said, Arrrgh—! Chorus x 2 And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat can do for you And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat can do! I put this hat upon my head And suddenly I’m feeling like an astronaut In outer space An astronaut just took my place I put this hat upon my head And suddenly an astronaut said, 5-4-3-2-1 Blast off—! Chorus x 2 And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat can do for you And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat can do! Mini-bridge: And that’s what a hat can do! And that’s what a hat can do! And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat And that’s what a hat can do! I put this hat upon my head And suddenly I’m feeling like a cowpoke On a wild mustang A cowpoke riding on the range I put this hat upon my head And suddenly an cowpoke said, Yippy kay ay Giddy up, little doggie—! Chorus x 2 Bridge: Today I am a pirate And tomorrow I’m an astronaut And later I’m a pilot Then I’m Irish or a graduate I’m French or I’m a firefighter Maharajah or a chef! I can be anything! A hat is all that I will need I can be anything! A hat is all that I will need Chorus x 2 Short Verse: I put this hat upon my head And suddenly, I decree That we shall all sing... Happy Birthday to me——! Chorus x 2

The Smilers 03:37
Ohh--the Smilers Oh oh--the Smilers No one beats a Smiler On a summer day They'll be shining Brighter than the sun Oh, the world could run On their glow You know, you know it's so Smiling on a Monday Though the rain is coming down So much work to be done Gotta make it fun If you can I bet you bet you can Smiling on a Tuesday Though you're feeling kinda blue Someone's taking care of you Don't forget to say “Thank You” When you can And you will feel better Chorus: Ohh--the Smilers Oh oh--the Smilers No one beats a Smiler On a summer day They'll be shining Brighter than the sun Oh, the world could run On their glow You know, you know it's so Smiling on a Wednesday As you're climbing up that hill Heavy load on your shoulders Stick a grin to feel bolder And press on You know you know you're strong Smiling on a Thursday As you're feeling sink or swim Though your nerves may be thinning A happy face helps you win it Yes it can I bet you bet you can Chorus: Ohh--the Smilers Oh oh--the Smilers No one beats a Smiler On a summer day They'll be shining Brighter than the sun Oh, the world could run On their glow You know, you know it's so Made it through to Friday And it's time to kick our heels up! Let's kick our heels up! Chorus: Ohh--the Smilers Oh oh--the Smilers No one beats a Smiler On a summer day They'll be shining Brighter than the sun Oh, the world could run On their glow You know, you know it's so-- End: Smiling on a Monday Smiling on a Tuesday Smiling on a Wednesday Smilers make every day better Cause they know they can Smilers make every day better Cause they know they can I bet you bet you can — you know, you know it’s so You know you know you can — I bet you bet you can I bet you know you can — you know you know you can

She’s smiling because Today she got a new wheelchair And she’s falling in love With a kid who’s in her class The rainbow on her t-shirt May be a little bit faded out But that’s alright— it’s alright— Cause she’s so bright She’s so bright— Yeah, the future’s in her eyes She’s so bright— Tracing dark clouds with silvery lines She’s so bright— She’s breaking again Through the sound of doubt in her favor And she’s taking a stand In the best way that she can The angel on her shoulder now May be a little bit tired out But that’s alright— it’s alright— Cause she’s so bright She’s so bright— Yeah, the future’s in her eyes She’s so bright— Tracing dark clouds with silvery lines She’s so bright— Bright Miss It’s her state of mind Keeps it shining all the time Don’t hold her back—no! Get out of her way Bright Miss saves the day! She’s so bright— Yeah, the future’s in her eyes She’s so bright— Tracing dark clouds with silvery lines She’s so bright— She’s so bright

Tonight, I’ll be brushing one less tooth One less tooth One less tooth Tonight, I’ll be brushing one less tooth Cause it came out today My tooth came loose when I took a bite Of a big green apple on a Friday night I chomped on down and something wasn’t right--- Wiggle, wiggle The next few days it was on my mind Every minute of the hour all day and night I wanna pull it out, but ooh ooh ahh ahh ehh… Wiggle, wiggle What you gonna do when your tooth gets loose? You can wait for like forever til it falls in your food Or you can tie a string around it and hold on tight and then… Get it over with Tonight, I’ll be brushing one less tooth One less tooth One less tooth Tonight, I’ll be brushing one less tooth Cause it came out today Nothing quite the same as your first loose tooth Feels super-duper strange while it’s super-duper cool And one of the few things only kids get to do--- Go kids! What you gonna do when your tooth gets loose? You can wait for like forever til it falls in your food Or you can tie a string around it and hold on tight and then… Get it over with Tonight, I’ll be brushing one less tooth One less tooth One less tooth Tonight, I’ll be brushing one less tooth Cause it came out today
