Track Name: Fun To Pretend
What's fun to pretend to be
What's fun to pretend to be
What's fun for you and me
What's fun to pretend to be

In the morning when no ones awake
I disappear and put on my cape
And when they get up my family can see
That I'm a super hero as brave as can be

Go in the kitchen and look what I found
Somethings crawling down on the ground
I hear it purrin' cleaning up it's fur and
My sisters making all kinds of kitty cat sounds

What's fun to pretend to be
What's fun to pretend to be
What's fun for you and me
What's fun to pretend to be

I'd like to be a pirate I think
Sail the oceans and the ships I'd sink
And then I'll measure all the buried treasure
Lookin' like a million bucks but boy do I stink!

What's fun to pretend to be
What's fun to pretend to be
What's fun for you and me
What's fun to pretend to be
Track Name: Too Much Stuff
Toys
Some games
Pajamas
And clothes
A bowling ball
My drums
I'm stubbing my toes
A bag of rocks
Some dirty socks
Yeah some would say junk

But it's not!

Getting in my room is getting kind of tough
Yeah my Mom looked around and said enough's enough
She said I need to clean it up and then she left in a huff
Said I'd better get some help because it's gonna be rough
I don't really see it but I've got to admit
That there isn't anywhere for anybody to sit

Why!?
You've got too much stuff
Why!?
You've got too much stuff
Why!?
You've got too much stuff
Why!?
You've got too much stuff

Haven't seen the bed yeah it's hard to ignore
Can't remember when I saw the rug the dog or the floor
It's O.K. I hope you're not keeping score
"Cause I think we're going out today I'll probably get more
So I've got to make some room it's gonna be a chore
No I don't need any help but please don't open that door
No don't open that door!
No don't open that door!!!

Why!?
You've got too much stuff
Why!?
You've got too much stuff
Why!?
You've got too much stuff
Why!?
You've got too much stuff
Track Name: Germs
You're taught to share so many things
But I have got a secret
One thing you should never share
And never ever keep it
It's something that you can not see
With your naked eye
Something that sneaks up on you
That's always a surprise
I'll give you one guess what it is
Can you hypothesize?
I bet you've got it figured out
So let's all harmonize

Germs!
They're gross and slimy like worms
Germs!
I just can't come to terms with those
Germs!
They're everywhere you go
Germs!
Just want to let you know

Wash your hands and brush your teeth
"cause that's where they all lurk
Say it don't spray it keep it to yourself
Don't be a j#@k

Germs!
They're hiding under your shoe
Germs!
Sneaking in with you know who
Germs!
They're everywhere you go
Germs!
Just want to let you know

Wash your hands and brush your teeth
"cause that's where they all lurk
Say it don't spray it keep it to yourself
Don't be a j#@k
It might be drastic
But a plastic bubble wouldn't hurt
No need to worry
All it takes is just a little work
Track Name: Me And My Friends
Me and my friends yeah me and my friends
When we get together the fun never ends

We know we're in good company

It's always more fun
When all of them come
To bashes or parties
Or soirees under the sun

Me and my friends yeah me and my friends

And we always sing
We get so loud
That it would make your ears ring

When we're together
It's just like a dream
And doesn't that mean
That we can do anything

Me and my friends yeah me and my friends
Don't need no mansions or money to spend
Me and my friends yeah me and my friends

Yeah they like me for
They like me for
They like me for me
Track Name: Pajama Party
Pajama parties are the best
Pajama parties forget the rest

No room for bores
We'll get a pizza
And lock the doors
Tell scary stories
We'll stay up all night
We'll laugh and sing and scream
Until the morning...

Light as a feather
Stiff as a board
We'll make some popcorn
Then make some more
Let's get a movie
We'll sleep on the floor

I'll dip your hand in water if you start to snore!

Pajama parties are the best
Pajama parties forget the rest

You and me
Yeah you and me

More members to our very funny family

And we'll have fun tonight
Shining stars and satellites
Flying high above the heavens

Don't try to stop me here I go

'Cause it's you that makes me happy
Can you see now does it show
I just wanted to let you know

Take my hand
'Cause I know I understand
That it's hard to do
When everything is different everything is new

Look around don't be afraid
So many friends yet to be made
And you'll wonder how you ever got along before
So perfect yeah it's tailor made

Track Name: Mr. Moon's Song
This is a song that the moon gave to me
He sang it sweet with a smile
I didn't know how you remembered a song
So I thought about it for a little while

I thought you could keep all the sounds and the words
Keep all the bits and the parts
Locked in a drawer or in a box on the floor
But the moon said "you're silly you just keep it in your heart"

So I said thank you goodbye Mr. moon
Good morning to you Mrs. Sun
I think I've got a new song I can sing for us
Or maybe we can just hum along

Before we could finish Mr. Moon came back
He said "why aren't you singing my song?"
I said I can't remember the words that you sang
He said "oh you're so silly it's not very long."

"It goes like this"

While the sun shines bright
And the moons still free
There is nothing better than a little you and me

While the sun shines bright
And the moons still free
There is nothing better than a little you and me

While the sun shines bright
And the moons still free
There is nothing better than a little you and me

While the sun shines bright
And the moons still free
There is nothing better than a little you and me

Oh I agree
Track Name: Pearly Whites
Tops and bottoms
And front and back
Just use your toothbrush
It's as simple as that

No don't let the plague
And tartar attack your pearly whites

Tops and bottoms
And in between
Just use your dental floss
To get your teeth clean

Of the breakfast lunch and dinner
That can't be seen 'cause it hides

Brush 'em up and brush 'em down
Don't forget your tongue just stick it out like a clown
'Cause everybody loves a pretty smile no one likes a frown

Tops and bottoms
And front and back
Just use your toothbrush
It's as simple as that

No don't let the plague
And tartar attack your pearly whites
Track Name: Little Willy
North side, east side
Little Willy, Willy wears the crown, he's the king around town
Dancing, glancing
Willy drives them silly with his star shoe shimmy shuffle down
Way past one, and feeling alright
'Cause with little Willy round they can last all night
Hey down, stay down, stay down down

'Cause little Willy, Willy won't go home
But you can't push Willy round
Willy won't go, try tellin' everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won't go home

Up town, down town
Little Willy, Willy drives them wild with his run-around style
Inside, outside
Willy sends them silly with his star-shine shimmy shuffle smile
Mama done chase Willy down through the hall
But laugh, Willy laugh, he don't care at all
Hey down, stay down, stay down, down

'Cause little Willy, Willy won't go home
But you can't push Willy round
Willy won't go, try tellin' everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won't go home

Little Willy, Willy won't
Willy won't, Willy won't
Little Willy, Willy won't
Willy won't, Willy won't
Little Willy, Willy won't
Willy won't, Willy won't
Little Willy, Willy won't
Willy won't, Willy won't

Little Willy, Willy won't go home
But you can't push Willy round
Willy won't go, try tellin' everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won't go home

Little Willy, Willy won't go home
But you can't push Willy round
Willy won't go, try tellin' everybody but, oh no
Little Willy, Willy won't go home
