Don’t Judge a Book by its Cover A new neighbour just moved in He’s got a different shade to his skin He’s got a brother, I think it’s his twin I wonder if we can find anything in common Chorus Our friends are not the same as each other Our skins may even be different colours But we’ve got to learn to love one another So don’t judge a book by its cover He pulled up in a great big truck In a cloud of smoke and a big pile of muck I would rather ride my bike But, I guess not everyone is all alike Chorus Now think of your favourite book Is it great because of how it looks? I think that we’d all agree It’s your favourite because it’s a great story Chorus

Walk ‘n’ Roll Chorus Walk the talk, Talk the walk Talk the talk, and walk the walk Wear something bright Look left and look right Wait for the light Make sure you’re in the driver’s eyesight Chorus Please don’t jaywalk Go to a crosswalk Hold my hand tight We’ll wait for the crossing light Bridge Left right Left right Left right and Left and right Listen to my song You might think it’s rock ‘n’ roll But it ain’t rock ‘n’ roll Baby this is walk ‘n’ roll Chorus Tell me what do you see And what do you hear Use your common sense Make sure that the coast is clear (Repeat 1st verse)

Hygiene and Eugene There are two kids on the scene Who always keep themselves real clean One of them is named Eugene And the other is his sister Jean Chorus Wash your face and ears…Eugene Floss and brush your teeth… Eugene Scrub your hands they’re dirty…Eugene… Don’t stop until you count to thirty…Hygiene Let’s start with my friend Eugene I find that he is really keen To make sure that he’s always clean He’s my friend with the best hygiene Chorus Next we have his sister Jean She’s pretty cute, and she wears high jeans When I see her I say “Hi Jean” “My you have really good hygiene” Wash your face and ears…Yeah Jean Floss and brush your teeth…Yeah Jean Scrub your hands they’re dirty…Yeah Jean Don’t stop until you count to thirty…Hygiene

Rockin’ in the Rockies - F Well I was up in the Rocky Mountains going for a hike As I walked through the forest I heard something that I liked Well I rounded the corner, was surprised by the sight Cause there was a giant grizzly bear singing into a mic, singin’… Rockin’ in the rockies, rockin’ on a mountain top They’ve got a rockin’ big band, they’ll make you jump and bop There’s a porcupine and a grizzly bear A big ol’ moose and a snowshoe hare Rockin’ in the rockies, rockin’ on a mountain top Singing on a microphone is a grizzly bear He’s the leader of the band with his Elvis hair Growls out the words to his favourite songs If you want to keep him happy, you better sing along Rockin’ in the rockies, rockin’ on a mountain top The big ol’ moose, plays the upright bass His full rack of antlers and a funny look on his face He’s playing those low notes, man he just won’t stop Keeps the tune a moving, the way he plays it really pops Rockin’ in the rockies, rockin’ on a mountain top The little guy with the spiky hair, he’s a porcupine He plays the guitar line, he plays it mighty fine When he plays a guitar solo, he knows lots of tricks But if he plays behind his back, that’s where the guitar sticks Rockin’ in the rockies, rockin’ on a mountain top The snowshoe hare on the drums, well he keeps the beat Banging out the rhythm and stompin his snowshoe feet He’s rocking to the rhythm, with a 1,2,3 and 4 Keeps everybody moving, he’s shaking the forest floor Rockin’ in the rockies, rockin’ on a mountain top Rockin’ in the rockies, rockin’ on a mountain top They’ve got a rockin’ big band, they’ll make you jump and bop There’s a porcupine and a grizzly bear A big ol’ moose and a snowshoe hare Rockin’ in the rockies, rockin’ on a mountain top

Reading Revival Chorus I’m going to read, I’m going to read, I’m going to read, I’m going to read in the library Take a look and choose a book About Peter Pan or Captain Hook He’s an awful pirate, a meanie and a crook You can read about our friend Charlie And his visit to Willy Wonka’s factory The Oompa Loompas make all kinds of crazy candy Chorus A book transports you to Hogwarts You can read about Harry and Voldemort Now Quidditch is practically my favourite sport Asterix and Obelix Are super strong thanks to Getafix Hunting wild boar is how they get their kicks Chorus One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish That Dr. Seuss is very seussish Don’t forget Horton, the Lorax and the Grinch That cuddly bear, Winnie the Pooh Along with Tigger, Kanga and Roo Were inspired by the author’s visit to the zoo Chorus So don’t be shy just sing with me About reading in the library The more you read, the more your mind is free Chorus

Boost Me Up 01:57
Boost Me Up Chorus Boost, boost, boost Boost me up now Nice and high so I can see That’s where we both will meet now When we are sitting in our booster seats I want to be nice and tall But I’m still a little small I want to see out the window When we are driving to the mall, so Chorus Seatbelt should cross my shoulder line That’s how my booster seat’s designed I need it until I’m nine years old Or until I’ve grown to four foot nine Chorus Dad’s seat is built for daddies Mom’s seat is built for mommies I need a seat that’s built for me Not a seat built for crash test dummies Chorus

Oh my, my, Hippopotami Well Harry is a Hippo He’s not hairy but he’s hip, yo! He hangs out in the lake Likes to dance, likes to shake, make an earthquake Well his real name is Harold And he’s shaped just like a barrel He may be a hippopotamus But he’s just like the rest of us Chorus Have you heard There’s a whole herd Oh, my, my Look at the hippopotami Hazel the hippo’s a joker But her jokes are pretty mediocre She thinks she is hilarious And she’s by far the most gregarious She weighs at least two tons And she’s always tons of fun She may be a hippopotamus But she’s just like the rest of us Chorus Bridge Let’s hop like a hippopotamus Let’s dance like a hippopotamus Let’s yawn like a hippopotamus Cause they’re just like the rest of us Chorus The third in the herd is Henry He’s a hippo, but he’s less friendly Keeps to himself from dusk to dawn When he opens his mouth it’s just to yawn I think deep down he’s just the kind of guy Who’s really just a little shy He may be a hippopotamus But he’s just like the rest of us Chorus

Kick It (the Soccer Song) - G I like to go and play soccer in the park Kicking that ball all around, all day until it’s dark If I’m not at home, you know where you can find Me, I’ll be down at the pitch, oh whether rain or shine Kick it! Chorus Ogie, ogie, ogie - Oi, oi, oi Ogie, ogie, ogie - Oi, oi, oi Ogie - Oi Ogie - Oi Ogie, ogie, ogie - Oi, oi, oi Dribble the ball down the field, then try to shoot and score When the goalie makes a save you can kick it in from the corner Your teammate can try to knock it in with his head That might be just what your team needs to go ahead Kick it! Chorus Bridge Dad took me to a stadium to watch the Whitecaps play He held my hand while we found our seats, it was a perfect day The game was tight right from the start, it could have gone either way When our team scored in the 90th minute, everyone yelled… Hooray! Chorus If the ball goes out of bounds you can throw it in to your sweeper It’s the only time you can use your hands unless you’re the goalkeeper At the end of the game line up for a little trip And shake hands with the other team to show good sportsmanship Kick it! Chorus

I Feel So Blue Yeah Mama, I feel so blue But it’s ok to be blue Like the sky and the ocean too, whoohoo! Yeah mama, I feel so pink But it’s ok to be pink Like a flamingo or a lemonade fruit drink Yeah mama, I feel so green But it’s ok to be green Like a little tree froggy and a rainforest canopy Yeah mama, I feel so yellow But it’s ok to be yellow Like the sun in the sky or lemon finger Jello Yeah mama, I feel so red But it’s ok to be red Like a maple leaf in fall or my friend Ted, he’s a redhead Yeah mama, well I’ve got the hues Well ain’t it just so wonderful, To feel so colourful
