:: 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

Raindrops 03:55
:: 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

:: 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

Sun Song 03:13
:: 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

:: 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

:: 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

Sundrops 03:00
:: 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 Some days 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

:: 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

:: 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

:: 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
