Track Name: Turtlurtlurtle
Turtlurtlurtle is a turtle, not a bird
Or an orangutan, an elephant
Or even a giraffe
She can hold her breath
Under water, like an otter
But she isn’t an otter either

And her best friend, Lou
Is a turtle too---
How do you do, Lou?

Turtlurtlurtle has a sister, Myrtlyrtle
She’s a turtle, not a parrotfish
Flamingo or a bat
If you get confused
When you see her on the evening news
She isn’t a TV journalist

She has a crush on Lou
If he only knew---
(Oh!) How do you do, Lou?

Now turtles don’t often
Get mistaken
For the other animals in the zoo---
Except for tortoises
They live on land
We're talking about turtles
They live in water, and on land too

Turtlurtlurtle is a little bit unusual
She likes to wear a costume
Every day of her life
She’s super social
Soaking in the pools of other animals
She doesn’t seem scared at all---

And her best friend, Lou
Wears a costume, too---
But only sometimes

So, if you happen to
Be at the zoo
And you see a strange looking animal—-
It might be a turtle
In disguise
Otherwise, it might be a homo sapien

Turtlurtlurtl---urtlurtlurtlurtlurtl...
Urtlurtlurtlurtl and Loooo
Turtlurtlurtl---urtlurtlurtlurtlurtle
Urtlurtlurtl--urtl and Loooo

Turtlurtlurtle’s still a turtle. Quite a turtle!
And Myrtlyrtle finally married Lou
Everybody’s happy
This is sounding kind of sappy
But we hope to see you at the zoo

Bring your best friend, too
If he’s a turtle, you—-
Are lucky
Track Name: Little Ray of Sunshine
You're my little ray of sunshine

You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay

Little ray--ay, little ray

Shine, shine and be mine all mine
Shine, shine and be mine
Shine, shine and be mine all mine
Little ray--ay, little ray

You're my little ray of sunshine
Little ray of sunshine
Smile so bright
You could light up the night
Little ray of sunshine
Little ray of sunshine
Keeping me warm in a snow storm

Sunlight all night and day...

You're my little ray-ay
You're my little ray-ay

Bridge:
Now you can change this song
To say anything you want
Just think of what you like
Think of what you love
Figure out the reason
And you find the words to rhyme
It’ll take a little practice
Gonna take a little time
But I believe in you - yes I do
Maybe writing a song
Is something you’ll love too

CHORUS:

Track Name: Froggie on My Windowsill
There’s a froggie on my window sill
He’s a noisy little guy
Keeps me up all night, saying…
Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, ribbit ribbit

There’s a froggie on the front porch swing
She’s a chatty little girl
Talking, talking to the world, saying…
Ribbit ribbit ribbit, redeep redeep, Ribbit ribbit ribbit, redeep, redeep

There’s a froggie in the mailbox
He’s a booming old man
Sending echoes through the land, saying…
Ooh bop, ooh bop bop, ooh bop, ooh bop, ooh bop bop

There’s a choir in the garden now
A bunch of noisy little frogs
Making music on a log
They’re singing…
Ooh bop, ooh bop bop, ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit ooh bop bop
Oopsie, oopsie, ribbit redeep, oopsie, oopsie, ribbit redeep…

I love that choir in the garden, yeah
A bunch of noisy little frogs
Making music on a log
They’re singing…
Ooh bop, ooh bop bop, ribbit ribbit ribbit ribbit ooh bop bop
Oopsie, oopsie, ribbit redeep, oopsie, oopsie, ribbit redeep…
Track Name: I'm in Love with You
I'm in love with the words you say your way
I'm in love with the silly games you play
I'm in love with yogurt on your nose
I'm in love with the counting of your toes
And I'm love with the wonder in your eyes
As you're trying something new— I do it
I'm in love with most everything you're doing
I'm in love with you

I’m in love with the vrooming of your cars—vroom, vroom
I’m in love when you’re plucking my guitar
I’m in love with the diapers on your dolls
I’m in love with your growls and your bird calls
I’m in love with your ribbits and your oinks
And your quacks and your bow-wows too—and your moos
I'm in love with most everything you're doing
I'm in love with you

You make me feel like the future's filled with
Love and hope and laughter
I'm looking forward

I'm in love with your Yeses and your Nos —more Nos
I'm in love with ring around the roses
I'm in love with how much you love the slide
I'm in love with your whys and your high-fives
I'm in love with your "Ooh la la la las"
As we're driving down the road— where going too?
I'm in love with most everything you're doing
I'm in love with you

Yes, I'm in love with you
Track Name: You Are My Sunshine
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
And I held my head and I cried

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know, dear, how much I lo----ve you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

(Kelli Welli added verse)
I’ll always love you and keep you laughing
I'm hoping you might say the same
My dreaming heart is forever spoken for
Be my sunshine day after day after day—

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey
You’ll never know, dear, how much I love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away

Please don’t take my sunshine away

Please don’t take my sunshine away

Track Name: Then You Will Run Free Too: A Song for Every Good Dog
What does he see?
What does he hear?
Where does he go?
What does he know?
Flying along
Like life is a song
Only the good dogs know——

Chorus:

When he hears the call——
Reach into his soul——
He lets his wild fire go——
Smokey will run free
Can you hear it too——?
Reaching into you——?
Let your inner child through——
Then you will run free——
Then you will run free——too

So many hills
And valleys in life
But that’s where we find
Out what’s inside
The right attitude
Can carry you through
Seems like the good dogs know——

Chorus:

When he hears the call——
Reach into his soul——
He lets his wild fire go——
Smokey will run free
Can you hear it too——?
Reaching into you——?
Let your inner child through——
Then you will run free——
Then you will run free——too

Lullaby—
Lullaby----

Sleep tight

Every soul under the moon
Will say goodnight too
Sleepyheads tucked in their beds
A kiss and I love you--- I love you

Lullaby
Lullaby—
Lullaby----
To say goodnight

Sous la lune et les etoiles
On dit bonne nuit, bonne nuit
A chaque enfant
Dans son lit
Un bisou et je t'aime, je t'aime

Just snuggle in, my tiny daughter
Just snuggle in, my little son
And I will hold you close to me
And I will hold you while you dream---

Oh dream,
May your dreams be beautiful
Give you wings
To fly through another world---

A-nything that I might do
To help your dreams come true
I’ll do for you, my baby
My baby

Just snuggle in, my tiny baby
Just settle in there, little one
And I will hold you tightly
And I will hold you while you dream---

May the scene be serene
When you close your eyes
Green trees
And the bluest of the blue skies
A stream of hope through solid ground
And you feel love all around
My wish for you, my baby
My baby

Just snuggle in, my tiny daughter
Just snuggle in, my little son
And I will hold you close to me
And I will love you always

Just snuggle in
Track Name: Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh
Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh
Tired and ready
Drift off to dreamland
Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh
May all of your wishes
Come true while you’re there
Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh
I hope that you know
I’ll be here when you wake
And I’ll always love you
I always will
Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh Baby Oh
Track Name: Springtime Dance
One fine day, I took a walk
And this is what I saw…

Two baby squirrels
Running round in a circle
Bushy tailed, playing games
It’s a springtime morning

Three baby birds
With their mouths open wide
Mama’s just in sight
Flying high in the sunlight

Four baby turtles
Blowing bubbles in the water

Five baby duckies
Leaving ripples on the pond

And there were six baby rabbits
Making mischief in the new, green grass
Doing a springtime dance

La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la

After seven rain showers
I took a walk
And this is what I spied…

Eight daffodils
Popping out of the ground
Reaching up the sky
Waking up for the springtime

Nine little daisies
Faces following the light
What a sweet and silly sight
Soft and white in the daylight

Ten lovely tulips
Painted colors of the rainbow

Eleven lady slippers
Looking delicate as glass

And there were twelve baby ferns
Uncurling as a breeze tickled past
Part of the springtime dance

La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la la la
Dance with me
La la la la la la la
In the springtime
La la la la la la la
Track Name: Pretend Summer
Summer when you’re younger means
Playing all day long
Fireworks and catching fireflies
And holding on
Splashing in the crashing waves
Fingers in the sand
BBQs and running through wildflowers
Getting tan

Chorus:
I don’t see a reason
To believe that summer
Ever has to ever end
Oh I don’t see a reason
To believe that summer
Ever has to ever end
Shall we pretend?

Teasing as the summer breeze is
Blowing through my hair
Making eyes while passing by
Pretending unaware
Summer lovers come and go
But never leave your heart
Flirting by the river, flowing love
Beneath the stars

Chorus:

Bridge:
Summer on my mind
Summer all the time
Summer in my heart
Summer keep my troubles far from me

Chorus:

Summer in my autumn years
Memories abound
My pride around the campfire
Singing favorites in a round
Tiny fingers pulling strings
Make music in my heart
Laughing through the lazy days
Giving thanks for my lucky stars

Chorus:
Track Name: Got So Much Love for You
Chorus (x2)
I’ve got love, love, love
So much love
I’ve got love, love, love for you
I’ve got love, love, love,
You’ve filled me up with love
I’ve got so much love for you

We’ll turn on the radio
And dance around the kitchen
We’ll turn on the sprinkler
And run around the yard
You’ll turn on the giggles
When you see me start to wiggle
And we’ll laugh and laugh and laugh
Until it’s time to go to bed

And if I haven’t already said it…

Chorus:
I’ve got love, love, love
So much love
I’ve got love, love, love for you
I’ve got love, love, love,
You’ve filled me up with love (Background Vocals: You’ve filled me up!)
I’ve got so much love for you
I’ve got so much love---for you
I do
I’ve got so much love for you

We’ll tell jokes to passing folks
It doesn’t matter if they laugh
We’ll sell lemonade
And maybe drink it all ourselves
You can hula hoop
And I will loop-the-loop my aeroplanes
It doesn’t matter what we do
I have fun with you---

So if I haven’t already said it…

Chorus:
I’ve got love, love, love
So much love
I’ve got love, love, love for you
I’ve got love, love, love,
You’ve filled me up with love (Background Vocals: You’ve filled me up!)
I’ve got so much love for you (can insert "little girl/boy" here)
I’ve got so much love---for you

And eat it on a sandwich
Put some ketchup on
And take it like a Manwich
A side or an entrée
Anything’ll do
Cooking up some happiness – with you
Can I get some happiness?

Toss it in a pan
And pop it on the stove
Shake it, Baby, shake it!

Treat it like an herb
May it flavor all you do
Pepper everything -- Achoo! Achoo!
Recipe for happiness – mmm mmm mmm
Can I get some happiness?

Spread a little happiness

Fill it up! Fill it up!
May your cup be a brimmin’
Pour one more
Til it feels like we’re swimmin’
Steep it like a tea
Infuse in you and me
Bliss like this -- Who needs caffeine?!
Brewing up some happiness -- so sweet
Can I get some some happiness?

May it grow like a weed
Let it seed, let it seed
Toss it in a salad
We’ll start this feed!
Give thanks for the feast
Amen! To say the least
Dig into the happiness? Yes, please!
Pass along the happiness…

doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

Oh Happy
We happy
Be happy too
Spread a little happiness
Around you

We happy too
Can I get some happiness, too ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh?
