Wordplay 03:16
Chorus I just love doing wordplay I can do it with all that I say Hip, hip hooray for wordplay My mom’s from Spain, she drinks café olé My dad’s bald, he has bills toupée In Hawaii on the beach is where I lei Strumming on my ukulele Chorus Even when I cook, I love to rhyme Curry in a hurry, often out of thyme I’ll eat all the olives and a bun, it’s fun to pun I like Chinese, sometimes one ton wontons! Chorus Here comes the funny part, it’s like a punny fart Tickle your funny bone, call it in on your bunny phone You can eat a bowl of salad, listen to my soulful ballad As we watch the butterfly flutter by I just can’t delay, all my wordplay I need more airplay, for all that I say Don’t lead me astray, it’s the rhyme I obey Colours like a bouquet, choices like a buffet Like a horse chewing hay, mouth keeps moving all day Words dance like ballet, drink it up in my café Do you want to play, your choice yay or nay Join me all the way, t’s more fun anyway Chorus When it comes to words, I’m the king of nerds And if I get angry, I say crosswords I’ve overheard some say, my puns are absurd My preferred way to speak, I’m undeterred

Scott Spell 03:21
Chorus Scott Spell, you know him very well He is really swell and he likes to S-P-E-L-L Scott Spell, at S-C-H-O-O-L He does very well My name is Scott S-C-O-T-T A speller is what I’m meant to B-E No one can spell more words than M-E The best speller in grade T-H-R-E-E Chorus Doesn’t waste time watching T-V Prefers to read, won’t S-T-O-P It’s his one true L-O-V-E He’s studying for the Scripps Spelling B-E-E When he doesn’t know how to spell a W-O-R-D He doesn’t worry he just looks it up In his favourite dictionary Chorus Gets tired later in the day So he takes a B-R-E-A-K He eats a S-N-A-C-K With a crossword then he feels A-O-K

Chorus Robots and tots, robots and tots Robots and tots, robots and tots Robots, they are just machines They may have legs but don’t wear jeans Well tots, they are not machines But they are often full of beans Chorus Robots, they will often beep And never have to go to sleep Tiny tots, when they sleep They do not beep, but often peep Chorus Robots have a huge memory Computer programs, circuitry Tots are learning ABCs And how to count 1, 2 and 3 Chorus When I was just a little tot I wished that I was a robot But now that I am growing up I see that being a kid ‘s what’s up! Chorus Robots may go up to the moon And others are just small vacuums But tots can play all afternoon Be anything, wearing costumes Chorus Robots, they don’t have feelings They can’t love people they’re just things But tots have friends now are you seeing? They’re lucky they are human beings Chorus

There is a T-Rex, and his name was Boris He knows so many words, doesn’t want to bore us, But he was like a Thesaurus They called him Boris Thesaurus, he was a tyrannosaurus In this song this is the chorus Chorus Boris Thesaurus Tyrannosaurus Boris Thesaurus Tyrannosaurus Rex! He knows all the big words To help us describe dinosaurs Like the ones who eat meat are carnivores And the ones who eat plants are the herbivores Chorus Boris knows dinosaurs were huge They were humongous, yes they were giants The scientists who now study them They are called paleontologists Chorus He knows the tricky names of the dinosaurs He can list them off non-stop Like a brontosaurus, a pterodactyl A stegosaurus, a triceratops Chorus He has an amazing vocabulary Use impressive words quite regularly Only one friend knows more of the dictionary A megalosaurus and her name is Mary Special Chorus Megalosaurus Mary Dictionary Megalosaurus Mary Dictionary Megalosaurus Mary Dictionary Boris Thesaurus Tyrannosaurus The dinos didn’t last forever Boris knows lots of words That mean they were done for They went extinct, their time expired Perished, departed, they were no more Chorus

Ooh, my Grama An, Ooh my Grama An Ooh my Grama An, loves to anagram Ooh, my Grama An, Ooh my Grama An Ooh my Grama An, loves to anagram Won’t cheat on anagrams, they’re a chance to teach So be silent and be sure to listen She’s a schoolmaster in the classroom And twelve plus one equals eleven plus two Chorus She is candidly neat, yes clean and tidy Can’t stand a dirty room, a messy dormitory Clean your bedroom, no boredom cry Read a bedtime story, say “I’m most tired, bye.” Chorus She treats her dog, like a god And she treats her cat, like a real class act She says a bear without hair Looks pretty bare but please don’t stare. Yeah! Chorus She’s an astronomer, a moon starer Looking for a sky thing in the night sky You know the eyes, they see far What soars tonight is a shooting star Chorus
6.
Chorus Well I’m swinging on the swing set You want to swing on the swing set Have a turn on the swing set We can all swing on the swing set The playground is the place for fun We can hop and skip and run Check out a bumpy slide If you want you can slide beside Chorus Cross a bridge and climb some stairs So much fun, don’t have no cares A great place for hide and seek I could play here all week Chorus There’s a tunnel we can go through I hope you’re wearing a running shoe We’ll keep moving and never stop We’ll play and play until we drop Chorus

Je suis impatient Le temp passe lentement Dans deux minutes seulement Je vais m’amuser Driiing! j’entends la cloche sonner En fin c’est la récré Refrain C’est la récréation Mangeons notre collation Ensemble, nous jouons C’est la récréation On joue et on rit On cours et on crie Avec nos amis Tom, il vient d’arriver De la Nouvelle-Guinée Hé Tom! Viens jouer Refrain Dehors, c’est nuageux Sur le terrain de jeu Soyons courageux Oh non! Il y a un dragon Sorti de son donjon Notre imagination Refrain Driiiing, la cloche sonne encore Annonce la fin des sports On ne tient pas compte du score Madame, je suis épuisé Je me suis dépensé J’ai perdu un soulier Refrain

Honky Tonka 03:46
Dump Truck I’ve got a front loader I’ve got a backhoe And a bulldozer I’ve got a big ol’ steamroller Gonna roll all over my dad’s shoe I’ve got the honky tonka toy truck Got the honky tonka toy truck blues In my backyard In my sandbox Wear my hard hat Take off my shoes and socks Gonna dig a giant hole And I’m the entire crew I’ve got the honky tonka toy truck Got the honky tonka toy truck blues I move a lot of dirt I make a big tower I love all my trucks They pack a lot of power I can do this for hours Yeah and not just one or two I’ve got the honky tonka toy truck Got the honky tonka toy truck blues Dump Truck I’ve got a front loader I’ve got a backhoe And a bulldozer I’ve got a big ol’ steamroller Gonna roll all over my dad’s shoe I’ve got the honky tonka toy truck Got the honky tonka toy truck blues

Rock It Ship 03:01
Chorus We’re heading out, to outer space Taking along our guitar, drums and bass It’s going to be an amazing trip Blasting off in our rock it ship The first verse is about our universe It will take a long time to traverse It’s made up of galaxies Planets, stars and other things In fact it’s basically everything! Chorus The stars on a night when it’s clear In my dreams each night of the year Nothing piques my imagination More than the constellations Space, the final frontier Floating in space It’s so easy Nothing to hold us down, There’s so much less gravity Chorus When I grow up I want a spot On a spaceship as an astronaut It will take lots of dedication To get to explore an alien nation But if I try, I might get my shot Chorus
12.
Chorus I’ll have a turn on the bike You can have one too I’ll have a turn on the swing You can have one too I’ll have a bite of our snack You can have one too Well we can share everything I want to share with you It’s not always easy to share But if you want to show someone you care And if you have the only one Well if you share it, it’ll be twice as fun Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! Chorus If you are at the playground You see a kid with no friends around You can invite him to play with you You’ll have a friend that’s brand new Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! Chorus Your sister would like something to eat You are both sitting in the back seat Well, you can do something sweet And share your special treat. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah! Chorus

Un sourire 03:54
Refrain Quand je reçois une carte postale – un sourire La fin de semaine du festival – un sourire La fierté de devenir grand – un sourire Une crème glacée avec mes grandparents – un sourire Ça fait deux mois que mon amie, en voyage, elle est partie Elle me manque énormément. Des nouvelles j’en attends J’aperçoi de ma fenêtre, le facteur apporte les lettres Sa carte postale est arrivée; je suis excité! Refrain Cette fin de semaine, c’est le festival, c’est un événement spécial Ça se passe chaque été, et c’est toujours ensoleillé On écoute des concerts. C’est agréable, c’est en plein air Tout le monde se met à danser, c’est comme un souffle de liberté! Refrain À la piscine avec maman, j’étais fier de devenir grand À deux mètres de hauteur, le plongeon me faisait peur Cette fois là, j’avais grimpé, j’ai décidé de plonger Je n’ai pas remis à demain, j’ai pris mon courage à deux mains! Refrain Un moment avec mes grand-parents, c’est toujours rafraîchissant On décide de marcher, on va manger une crème glacée Mon grand-père aime le chocolat, la vanille, c’est pour moi On parle de tout et de rien, et je me sens bien Refrain

Fishing for dreams tonight Fishing for dreams tonight Going to hope for a bite As we turn out the light Fishing for dreams tonight Fishing for dreams with a book Fishing for dreams with a book Put some bait on my hook Close my eyes and I’ll look Fishing for dreams with a book Fishing for dreams from my bed Fishing for dreams from my bed As I lay down my head A dream waits just ahead Fishing for dreams from my bed Fishing for dreams after nine Fishing for dreams after nine Going to reel in my line Catch a dream that’s just mine Fishing for dreams after nine Fishing for dreams as I sleep Fishing for dreams as I sleep Heading down in the deep I know these dreams I can’t keep Fishing for dreams as I sleep Fishing for dreams of you Fishing for dreams of you Well I might catch a few And you know if I do I’ll be thankful for dreams of you Well I might catch a few And you know if I do I’ll be thankful for dreams I’ll be thankful for dreams I’ll be thankful for dreams of you
