Track Name: Sing In The Sun
:: LYRICS ::

We can make the sun come out
We can make the sun come out
Singing in the sun
Sunshine

Rolling in the dandelions
Rolling in the dandelions
Singing in the sun
Sunshine

We can make the sun come out
We can make the sun come out
Singing in the sun
Sunshine

Yesterday was grey with rain
A beautiful day has begun
Sunrise up shine in my eyes
And everyone sing in the sunshine

We can make the sun come out
We can make the sun come out
Singing in the sun
Sunshine

Kiss your face and kiss your eyes
Kiss your face and kiss your eyes
Singing in the sun
Sunshine

Yesterday was grey with rain
A beautiful day has begun
Sunrise up shine in my eyes
And everyone sing in the sunshine

In the sun
In the sun
In the sun
In the sun

We can make the sun come out
We can make the sun come out
Singing in the sun
Sunshine
Track Name: Raindrops
:: LYRICS ::

Raindrops
Won't stop
So let's
Get wet
We'll dry off someday
It's just water anyway

Raindrops on my head
The clouds are full of tiny holes
The world is getting wet
But I'm dry on my umbrella stroll

Raindrops small at first
Warm and wet and falling down
On flowers bent in thirst
Puddles gather on the ground

Raindrops
Won't stop
So let's
Get wet
We'll dry off someday
It's just water anyway

Wearing my rain boots
Raincoat and my rubber pants
I'm almost waterproof
All dressed up for my rain dance

Raindrops
Won't stop
So let's
Get wet
We'll dry off someday
It's just water anyway
Track Name: It's Gotta Rain (If You Want A Rainbow)
:: LYRICS ::

It's gotta rain if you want a rainbow
It's gotta rain let your little seed grow
It's gotta rain we're singing in the same boat
It's gotta rain if you want a rainbow

The flower in your heart
Cannot grow all night
So dream on through the dark
And bloom into the light cause

We always love hellos
It's hard to say goodbyes
But it's the letting go
That brings the next sunrise and

It's gotta rain if you want a rainbow
It's gotta rain let your little seed grow
It's gotta rain we're singing in the same boat
It's gotta rain if you want a rainbow

Another starless sky
They cannot all be twinklers
I know one day you'll find
A rainbow in a sprinkler
But till then it's gotta rain
Track Name: Sun Song
:: LYRICS ::

When the skies are blue and the whole world's sunny
I can laugh at things that aren't even funny
I feel so good don't want to be rude
Sunshine puts me in a happy mood

Wake up in the morning with the sun in my eyes
Still a little sleepy from the previous night
The warm daylight is a welcome surprise
Rush out the door and get into the light
The sun's so great nothing else can beat it
Open up my arms and attempt to greet it
When the sun comes out I forget my strife
And remember that it gave me the gift of life

When the skies are blue and the whole world's sunny
I can laugh at things that aren't even funny
I feel so good don't want to be rude
Sunshine puts me in a happy mood

I'm not doing much but it's lots of fun
Everything is better in the glow of the sun
All I see is sunshine for miles
And people outside wearing big old smiles
Gonna find a spot by the edge of a brook
And skip some stones or just read a book
I might lose my shoes and lose my socks
Take a dip in the water if it gets too hot

When the skies are blue and the whole world's sunny
I can laugh at things that aren't even funny
I feel so good don't want to be rude
Sunshine puts me in a happy mood

The sun is shining and ain't no chance of showers
I'm feeling like I got solar powers
I could be on the mountain, I could be on the coast
Sunny is the weather that I love the most
I love the sun when it's hot, love the sun when it snows,
Love the sun when it rains and makes rainbows
I love the sun summer, fall, winter and spring
I love the sun and all the life that it brings
I love the sun's heat, I love the sun's light
I love the sun all day and I miss it at night
There's one thing that can't be outdone
And everybody knows I'm talking bout the sun

When the skies are blue and the whole world's sunny
I can laugh at things that aren't even funny
I feel so good don't want to be rude
Sunshine puts me in a happy mood
Track Name: Are You A Monster Too?
:: LYRICS ::

I am a monster are you a monster too?
I'm getting hungry for some monster food
In the dark next to
A dustpan and a broom
I'm hiding because I'm scared too

Monster monster monster monster

I have monster claws and yellow eyes
My greasy monster fur is full of flies
Snuck into your bedroom
And now I'm watching you
I'm hiding because I'm scared too

Monster monster monster monster

Careful cause my teeth are razor sharp
Hiding here and waiting in the dark
Through the woods I follow you
Behind a shadow of the moon
I'm hiding because I'm scared too

Monster monster monster monster
Track Name: Digga Dog Kid
:: LYRICS ::

I can dig in the dirt
I can dig in the sand
I can dig a big hole down
With my little hands
I can dig up some worms
Who are living way down there
A little dirt under my fingernails
I don't really care

Dig dog a digga dog dig
A dig dog digga dog dig
Dig dog a digga dog dig
I'm a digga digga digga dog kid

I can dig in the soil
I can drop in some seeds
I can dig a big hole then
Plant a little tree
And I sing a little song
As I'm covering the hole
Then I do a little dance
So its roots will grow

Dig dog a digga dog dig
A dig dog digga dog dig
Dig dog a digga dog dig
I'm a digga digga digga dog kid

We could dig up some gold
If we had a treasure map
If we found a treasure chest
There'd be nothing wrong with that
So grab a shovel quick
And let's get looking for the loot
If you do a little digging then
I'll share it all with you

Dig dog a digga dog dig
A dig dog digga dog dig
Dig dog a digga dog dig
I'm a digga digga digga dog kid
Track Name: Surprise

Track Name: Sundrops
:: LYRICS ::

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops the sun's gonna shine
And the rain's gonna fall both at the same time

I'm getting thirsty I hope it rains soon
Been waiting on a cloud since late last June
My lips are dry my arm's so tired
From holding this cup up to the sky

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops the sun's gonna shine
And the rain's gonna fall both at the same time

It's been a long winter damp and dark
I'm waiting on spring and a brand new start
Like a firefly caught in a mason jar
Keep a little bit of sun inside your heart

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops it could rain or shine
Better get the laundry off the clothesline

Someday's I feel the same
I don't know if I don't want to
Be the sun or the rain
I don't know and I don't want to
Can't make up my mind
I don't know but maybe better
Let it rain and shine

Some wish for sun others for rain
All our wishes blowing up around the weathervane
Some come true, some do not
So I'm wishing to be happy with what I got

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops the sun's gonna shine
Gonna put the laundry back on the line

Sundrops a break in the clouds
Sundrops might dry us out
Sundrops once upon a time
It's raining like a nursery rhyme

Sundrops the rain's gonna fall
Sundrops might soak us all
Sundrops the sun's gonna shine
And the rain's gonna fall both at the same time
Track Name: You Are My Sunshine
:: LYRICS ::

You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You'll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don't take
My sunshine away

The other night dear
As I lay sleeping
I dreamt I held
You in my arms
When I awoke dear
I was mistaken
And I hung
My head and cried

You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You'll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don't take
My sunshine away

The way you hold me
Just like a flower
Opens for
The honeybee
So wrap me up in
Your leaves and petals
Like love was made
Just for you and for me

You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy
When skies are grey
You'll never know dear
How much I love you
Please don't take
My sunshine away
Track Name: Butterfly Away
:: LYRICS ::

I'm a caterpillar crawling
Through the tall grass under the sun
With a tiny tear in my eye
Cause it's time to say goodbye

I'll be beautiful someday
When I butterfly away

I'll be spinning silk very soon
Roll up in my little cocoon
The new year wrapped up like a wish
Disappear into chrysalis

I'll be beautiful someday
When I butterfly away

Butterfly
Butterfly
Butterfly

And the life I knew left behind
So I'll try these wings on for size
Floating through like a lullaby
I'm a beautiful butterfly

Ain't I beautiful today?
Watch me butterfly away

Butterfly
Butterfly
Butterfly
Track Name: Getting Night Now
:: LYRICS ::

It ends up night but it's light at first
Evening's like morning but it happens in reverse
The sun drops into the west without a sound
And birds fly home 'cause it's getting night now

Slip to sleep
But don't fall too fast
Life's a dream
But don't let it pass you by

A tiny tummy growls on a skinny hungry cat
Trees are losing color turning into black
A little puff of smoke from the chimney on a house
Supper's on the table 'cause it's getting night now

Slip to sleep
But don't fall too fast
Life's a dream
But don't let it pass you by

Climb the golden stairs and find my toothbrush
I'm winding down raccoons are waking up
The world grows dark now that night is laying down
Crawling into bed 'cause it's getting night now

Slip to sleep
But don't fall too fast
Life's a dream
But don't let it pass you by

So I stare and I wonder
About these stars I am under
In between joy and sorrow
Yesterday and tomorrow
Another day another one
Another trip around the sun
Another dusk another dawn
Another dream another yawn
Hold on tight or it's gone
Hold on tight before it's gone
