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

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

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

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:

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
