Chorus Steam engines, diesel trains, City trolleys and even subways Ooh, I love those trains… I think about them every day If I’m stuck in the house, on a day when it rains I’ll get out my wooden set I’m gonna build some trains Trestle Bridge Choo choo, chuggada choo Choo choo, chuggada choo Well choo chuggada choo Chuggada chuggada choo choo choo Choo chuggada choo Choo choo chuggada choo Choo choo choo, chuggada choo Chugga, chugga chuggada, choo choo choo I’ll dump out the rails Gonna build some long trails Start in my room, This train is gonna zoom Well I’m building on the floor, and we’ll head right out the door Heading down the stairs, the rails go down in pairs My dog just sits and stares, I guess it’s only me that cares These tracks they start to crawl Right on down the hall Into the living room I’m in my engineer costume My train it won’t derail, ’cause I pay attention to detail The tracks they are a switchin’ No time for flinchin’ New cars are hitchin’ as we head into the kitchen Chorus Trestle Bridge

Chorus The Raindrops fall to the ground 1, 2, 3 falling all around I’m going to take a step outside I’ll open my umbrella wide I’ll walk in puddles on the ground I’ll spin my umbrella around I’m in my boots, my name is Ella And I just love my umbrella The rain has to fall But I don’t mind it at all It lands and then starts to flow And everything around will grow Chorus The forecast is calling for rain It must be that time again The rain, it falls from a cloud And if there’s thunder it is loud Chorus The rain it falls and flows downhill The water into lakes they fill Then rushing rivers to the ocean And it starts again with evaporation Chorus

Just Imagine 03:06
Chorus Use your imagination With a little determination There is no limitation When you use your imagination If you imagine it If you work at it If you never quit Well, just imagine There was a man, imagined he could fly He watched the birds and said, “Oh, why can’t I?” Worked hard with his brother, built a plane that could fly Well he imagined it, and he took it to the sky Chorus When I was a little kid, I liked to sing for everyone I loved an audience, it was always lots of fun I dreamed when I’d grow up, sing for people with my guitar Well I imagined it, now I’m a pebble star! Chorus What do you think about, when you day dream Some cool ideas I bet, but impossible they may seem But what you imagined, you may realize If you work hard at it, you just might be surprised Chorus

Mama Samba 03:37
Chorus My mama loves to dance, she’s going to do the mama samba My mama loves to dance, she’s going to do the mama samba My mama loves to dance, she’s going to do the mama samba I’m going to dance with my mom, and do the mama samba Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance in the family room Oh my mama loves to dance Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance in the living room Oh my mama loves to dance Chorus Mama loves to dance, she’s going to move her body to the beat Oh my mama loves to dance Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance right on down the street Oh my mama loves to dance Chorus Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance at the bus stop Oh my mama loves to dance Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance until she drop Oh my mama loves to dance Chorus

Chorus She’s Chloe the utterly cool cow Chloe the utterly cool cow She just wants to help now Because she’s Chloe the utterly cool cow She can help you work it out She’s so cool gonna make you shout If you have a problem with bullies She’s the one that you really need She’ll make friends of enemies She’s so cool ’cause she does good deeds There is no need to fight She can help to make things right Chorus If you’re ever feeling down She’ll make you smile like a clown It’ll turn your frown upside-down The best brown cow in this town Chloe is a real good friend On her you can depend Chorus You ask, what makes Chloe super cool Well here is why she really rules She’s friends with everyone in school Like Kaidyn, Cole and Abdul This is what makes her so great ’Cause she really loves not to hate Chorus

Stampede 03:08
In the morning on the farm, the rooster goes cock-a-doodle-doo Gotta get out of bed, you sleepy head, there’s lots of things to do The cows are all at the trough, they’re waiting for their feed But every now and then those cows, get a little crazy, We’re gonna have a… Chorus Stampede, yeehaw Stampede, yeehaw Stampede, yeehaw Stampede, yeehaw Saddle up my horse, I’m going to take him to stretch his legs I'm going to visit the chickens, going to pick up some fresh eggs Outside the birdcoop, the chickens are pecking at their seed But every now and then those chickens, get a little crazy, We’re gonna have a… Chorus One more stop we have to make, before we stop to eat I’m going to visit the pigsty, going to walk in the mud with my feet The pigs are trying to keep cool, a big old mud pit is all they need But every now and then those pigs, get a little crazy, We’re gonna have a… Chorus x2

Trikers 03:10
When I was only two I got my first trike It had flames on the side And it was chromed up nice Chorus A People in the neighbourhood, they don’t know what to do When I roll up, in temporary tattoos They call me the triker, and I’m in preschool I own the sidewalk, and I’m super cool, yeah! Now there are my friends I met in the park They also ride trikes But not after dark Chorus B People in the neighbourhood, they don’t know what to do When we roll up, in temporary tattoos They call us the trikers, and we’re all in preschool We own the sidewalk, and we’re super cool, yeah! When it’s nice outside Put on our backpacks We cruise around the block Then we eat some fruit snacks Chorus B

Colour It 03:36
Chorus I’m done my picture Needs a colourful mixture Get out my crayons I’m going to colour it! Repeat chorus Well I’m drawing because it’s my favourite thing to do I’m drawing a picture of me with you But, it’s not done yet, it can be much more beautiful It needs something more, to make it colourful Chorus Sometimes I like to draw fruit on a plate It’s called a still life picture, I want to make it great But it’s not done yet, it can look much more flavourful It needs something more, to make it colourful Chorus I like Picasso, I think of him when I draw my house and my yard My mom says my pictures, they look pretty avant-garde But it’s not done yet, it can be much more wonderful It needs something more, to make it colourful

Chorus Spending time with my little girl To me she means the whole wide world Go on an adventure and we’ll play Because today is Daddy Daughter Day We can go down to the beach Build a castle made of sand On a log we can take a seat When we walk you can hold my hand Chorus We might go to a show Listen to the Backyard Band We can sing and dance to and fro And at the end we can clap our hands Chorus We can go and ride our bikes Maybe head down to the park Swing or slide, whatever you like We’ll play all day, right until it’s dark Bridge Today is Daddy Daughter Day Today is Daddy Daughter Day Today is Daddy Daughter Day Chorus

I lay my head down As I listen to the sound Of my daddy singing to me That is how I go to sleep He sits in his rocking chair And he ruffles up my hair Leans over and tucks me in That is when the songs begin He sings of wondrous tales Of trains and dragon’s tails Of birds that have flown He’s done this ever since I was born My daddy’s singing slow And his voice is getting low He’s getting tired you see I bet he falls asleep before me I lay my head down As I listen to the sound Of my daddy singing to me That is how I go to sleep

about
