Glitter Bug 03:07
I’m not a worker bee I’ll move at my own speed I’ll find my own honey and the sweeter it will be I’m so sparkly And I’ll shine so bright the whole wild world will see. (It’s a part of me) Mambo and jitterbug You know this glitterbug can swing Now watch me cut a rug (breakdown) I want to hear you sing that (do re me fa so la ti do ti la so fa me re do) I’m so sparkly And I’ll shine so bright the whole wild world will see. (It’s a part of me) You can’t squish me Or my creativity I’m livin life so glittery I’m free I’m so sparkly And I’ll shine so bright the whole wild world will see. (It’s a part of me) I’m so sparkly I’ll be shining like the stars of the galaxy (It’s a part of me)

I’m a vegetarian spider I’m a lover not a fighter ‘stead of moths I’ll eat some carrots ‘stead of skeeters I eat squash In my web I catch tomatoes How I love french fried potatoes Onions, beets, and peppers Are my favorite things to nosh No Flies, No Ants Feed me, Juicy Plants Stop by anyday And grab a side of cole slaw on the way Oh, my friends tell me I’m strange For a spider I’m deranged I’d rather drink V8 Than feast on flee or bee. Other spiders are judgmental When I’m eating curried lentils But they can have their insects I know what’s best for me No Flies, No Ants Feed me, Juicy Plants Stop by anyday And grab a side of cole slaw on the way Part 1: Brussel sprouts make me want to shout Part 2: Rutabaga rutabaga rutabaga Root Part 3: I go bananas for bananas, I like leeks I like leeks No Flies, No Ants Feed me, Juicy Plants Stop by any day And grab a side of Cole Slaw on the way

I woke to take a walk The sun was still asleep I wandered towards the bay And slowly dragged my feetot At once a felt a pulse A groovy beat in five I heard a joyful roar And felt the funky jive of Hi-po-pa-to-mus, Hi-po-pa-to-mus Now any hippo knows That dancing sooths the soul In hours before the sun The hippos have their fun The day’s to hot to dance The sun will scorch the skin But when the dusk arrives The thundering waltz begins with Hi-po-pa-to-mus, Hi-po-pa-to-mus You mustn’t get to near You’re better to stay clear A hippo dance is not A human social spot Kiboko kiboko kiboko kiboko Hi-po-pa-to-mus, Hi-po-pa-to-mus

Everyone's got something they eventually outgrew Everybody's gotta shed a skin or two Yes it's out with the old and in with the new Everybody's gotta shed a skin or two Well, sometimes you feel so cooped up, you're just about to burst So itchy in your skin you want to climb out head first But wait! This skin's familiar; it's the only one I know Relax, that's just called growing, and everyone must grow Everyone's got something they eventually outgrew Everybody's gotta shed a skin or two Yes it's out with the old and in with the new Everybody's gotta shed a skin or two Sometimes you get to itchin', and that itch won't be denied Then a part of you says: "Give up!" before you've even tried But then another part says: "Come on, you can do it, friend! It'll all end up ok and if it's not, it's not the end." Everyone's got something they eventually outgrew Everybody's gotta shed a skin or two Yes it's out with the old and in with the new Everybody's gotta shed a skin or two If you've ever shed your skin then you'd be in the know it doesn't take a scientist to see that all things grow you can tell your friends changing ain't no thing Just stomp your feet and clap your hands together we will sing. Everyone's got something they eventually outgrew Everybody's gotta shed a skin or two Yes it's out with the old and in with the new Everybody's gotta shed a skin or two

If fish can glow deep in the sea And crocodiles can climb up trees If dolphins laugh and monkeys sing A hog can do most anything My mind is set I’ll soar away I’ll be a flying pig one day When people say: “That’ll happen when PIGS FLY!” They mean a time that won’t come by But you will see. I’ll go so far. This pig will be a shooting star. My mind is set I’ll soar away I’ll be a flying pig one day My mind is set I’ll soar away I’ll be a flying pig today

Run Free 04:53
I feel the ground beneath I’m Soaking in the rays Wind whipping at my mane I could run for days I run free From lock and chain You will see I will not be tamed I play across the plains No fence but the horizon A cloud of dust behind us The tumbleweeds remind us That we run free From lock and chain You will see We will not be tamed we run free From lock and chain You will see We will not be tamed

Why be a pigeon When you can be a peacock Why entertain the thought of being drab Look into my eyes And you’ll soon realize That I’m ecstatic to be Living fab It’s a real pleasure My natural treasure Counting immeasurable hues There is crimson and silver Forest green runs down the quiver Fusia AND magenta And a streak of royal blue I love colors, Yes I do! Won’t you be a peacock, too? I love colors, take my advice Maybe one day I’ll be A bird of paradise (and I’ll dance real nice) Why be boring Why be trite Why not show some color now and then You’re not a pidgeon You’re not a crow And you’re certainly not a hen A peacock such as you Should never be subdued Strut and prance your feathers to and fro It’s no shame to strut your train Like a lion with his mane A tail will tell your tale No two peacocks are the same I love colors, Yes I do! Won’t you be a peacock, too? I love colors, take my advice Maybe one day I’ll be A bird of paradise. Why be a pigeon when you can be a peacock? Why be easy listening, WHEN YOU CAN ROCK!
