Track Name: Then You Will Run Free: A Song for Every Good Dog
What does he hear?
What does he see?
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
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: 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: 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: Hello I Am a Monkey
Hello, I am a monkey

I would like to play

If you will not play with me

Then I will say...
