about

Catchy kids songs that both parents and kids will love.

Things I Like was inspired by the birth of my daughter and unexpectedly written with and for her. It features the amazing guitar of Mike Fleming and Ryan Patrick Murphy’s drumming and recording skillz. Paul Mertens (Brian Wilson) dropped in to add piccolo and flute to the song Sour Puss and Patrick from Wilco contributed an insane solo and more to the song Team Member. Geoff Gilkes played bass lines to 3 of the tunes, Miss Krista sings beautifully as always and did I forget to mention Istvan! I’m all over this thing.

Track Name: What's Mama Doin'
What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin' now?

What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin' now?

She is taking out the dogs
She is picking out my clothes
She is fixing me some food
She is wiping boogers from my nose
She's getting me some milk
She's singing me a song
But I don't have the heart to tell her she can't sing
"Hey you can't talk."

What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin' now?

What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin' now?

She is giving me a bath
She's scarfing down some toast
She's taking me for walks
She is always trying to find her phone
She's giving me a kiss
She says she loves me so
And I love her she's my best friend
"Is that her there?"
Yeah that's my Mom!

What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin' now?

What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin'
What's Mama doin' now?
Track Name: Run Around
Run with me you gotta play with me
You gotta run run run around

Run with me you gotta play with me
You gotta run run run around


You gotta run like a cheeta run like a gazelle

You gotta run 'till all your shoes and socks really smell

You gotta run like a like ostrich run like a giraffe

You gotta run 'till you make everyone start to laugh

Run with me you gotta play with me
You gotta run run run around

Run with me you gotta play with me
You gotta run run run around


You gotta run like a lion gotta run like a dog

You gotta run like a bug whose being chased by a frog

You gotta run like a rabbit gotta run like a horse

You gotta run like running on an obstacle course


Run with me you gotta play with me
You gotta run run run around
Track Name: Team Member
In the morning we change my diaper
I help my Mama cause I don't even cry
We make some breakfast I don't get hyper
I ask politely "may I have a piece of pie"

And Mom says pie is for desert
If you eat it for breakfast your tummy will hurt
So I say fine give me what you've got
I'm sure whatever you've made is gonna hit the spot

'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?

Go to the bathroom I use the potty
I wash my hands and get them good and clean
I put some clothes on without a struggle
I don't get angry I don't shout and I don't scream

But when I get dressed things go here and there
Like my pants and my shirts and all my underwear
So I pick 'em up quick and put them in the drawer
Then my room looks great 'cause nothings on the floor

'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?

I see my Mommy talk to my Daddy
I want to join in so I yell "hey look at me!"
Then I remember just what they told me
If you want to join in you must do it politely

So I step right up and then I wait my turn
I excuse myself to show them what I've learned
Then I talk about peacocks on my head
Yeah you heard me right that's what I said


'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?

'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?

'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?


(more grown up version)

In the morning when I'm finished snoring
I'm a little hungry and my throats a little dry
I get some breakfast I don't get hyper
I ask politely may I have a piece of pie

And Mom says pie is for desert
If you eat it for breakfast your tummy will hurt
So I say fine give me what you've got
I'm sure whatever you've made is gonna hit the spot

'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?

I clear the table because I'm able
I wash my hands and get them good and clean
I put some clothes on without a struggle
I don't get angry I don't shout and I don't scream

But when I get dressed things go here and there
Like my pants and my shirts and all my underwear
So I pick 'em up quick and put them in the drawer
Then my room looks great 'cause nothings on the floor

'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?

I see my Mommy talk to my Daddy
I want to join in so I yell "hey look at me!"
Then I remember just what they told me
If you want to join in you must do it politely

So I step right up and then I wait my turn
I excuse myself to show them what I've learned
Then I talk about peacocks on my head
Yeah you heard me right that's what I said


'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?

'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?

'Cause I'm a team member got work to do
Team members work together hey how 'bout you?
Track Name: It Ain't Easy
It ain't easy being a baby
When your thoughts surpass your ability to speak
You want to walk but your legs are wobbly
You can't control them they won't cooperate

It ain't easy
It ain't easy
It ain't easy

It ain't easy being a Mommy
When you've got a baby who doesn't want to eat
Who thinks it's funny to role on her tummy
Who never ever seems to want to go to sleep

It ain't easy
It ain't easy
It ain't easy

It ain't easy being a puppy
Or a kitty or any family pet
Being poked and prodded squeezed and strangle
Stalked and mangled by someone you just met

It ain't easy
It ain't easy
It ain't easy
Track Name: Sour Puss
She's really a wonderful girl when you get to know her
But you'd never know it from the way she is behaving today

Could it be from the fact
That she wouldn't take a nap
No one really knows who can say

She's here to stay
For the rest of the day
Hip hip hooray sour puss is here

Sour Puss is
Sour Puss is
Sour Puss is here

Sour Puss is
Sour Puss is
Sour Puss is here

Sour Puss is
Sour Puss is
Sour Puss is here

So what can you do when she sneaks up on you out of nowhere
And there's nowhere to hide find her good side before it's too late

Yeah you'd better think quick
Will a snack do the trick
No one really knows who can say

She'll have her way
No matter what you say
Hip hip hooray sour puss is here

She's here to stay
For the rest of the day
Hip hip hooray sour puss is here

She'll have her way
No matter what you say
Hip hip hooray sour puss is here

So what can we do
To get a smile out of you
Please tell us sour puss don't delay
Track Name: Things I Like
I like breakfast

I like lunch

I like dinner

I've never had brunch


And I like pinky's

And I like thumbs

I like eyeballs

And I like tongues


When they're licking ice cream cones

And blowing bubbles with bubble gum


I like mustard

And I like cheese

And I like anything that can make you sneeze


And I like marmos

"What are those?"

That's just the way that we say marshmallows


All the things I like are the things I like the most

All the things I like are the things I like the most

All the things I like are the things I like the most !!!!!!!!!!
