Track Name: DO THE WOOPSIE
Here’s your chance
A brand new dance
Mind your step
Pep-i-di-pep
Do The Woopsie

To the right
Nice and light
To the left
Good as you get
Do The Woopsie

Climb the stairs
Hands in the air
Twisting low
As low as you go
Do The Woopsie

Make your mark
Glow in the dark
Going on a holiday
I’m going to dance my cares away
Woop woop woop woop
Do the Woopsie

Shake your head
Shake your tail
Float your boat
Raise your sail
Do The Woopsie
Track Name: LITTLE MISS MOSQUITO
Mosquito
In the middle of the night
In the middle of my dreams
Buzzes through the window by my bed

Mosquito
Like an arrow taking flight
Like a needle sharp and bright
Cuts straight through the darkness to my head

Little Miss Mosquito
Wants to spend the night with me
Little Miss Mosquito

Little Miss Mosquito
Wants to stick her knife in me
Little Miss Mosquito

Mosquito
I wake up ready to fight
She is ready but to bite
I am big and she is very small

Mosquito
Is she here or is she there?
I can hear her everywhere
Dancing like a shadow on my wall

Little Miss Mosquito…

Mosquito
She takes aim and then she strikes
I reach up turn on the light
She is on the ceiling out of reach

Mosquito
She is quiet then she dives
I am left with itchy hives
She has sucked my blood just like a leech

Little Miss Mosquito…
Track Name: THE JUNGLE IS JUMPING
Leaves on the trees
I said leaves on the trees
They move with the wind
They move with the rain
Leaves on the trees
They’re at it again
Leaves leaves leaves leaves leaves leaves
Leaves on the trees

The jungle is jumping
The jungle is wild
Full of dirty creatures
Smile and then they eat you
The jungle is jumping
Come closer my child

She sneaks through the trees
I said she sneaks through the trees
She’s long and she’s snaky
She slides on the ground
She sneaks through the green
She’s never been found
Sneaks sneaks sneaks sneaks sneaks sneaks
Sneaks through the green

The jungle is jumping…

They eat with their teeth
I said they eat with their teeth
They don’t like bananas
Don’t give them a treat
They eat with their teeth
And they’re screaming for meat
Meat meat meat meat meat meat
Meat with their teeth

The jungle is jumping…
Track Name: LADY LUCK
Lady Luck
You got your eye on me

One little birdie sitting on the tree
Tree say not a lot
Bird say I’ve got
I’ve got love in my heart

Sha na na na na
Sha na na na day-o

Lady Luck…

One little sea horse
Swimming in the sea
Sea say giddy up
Horse say what’s up
I’ve got love in my heart

Sha na na na na
Sha na na na day-o

Give a little love
You get a little luck
You’ve got, you’ve got the feeling
You give a little love
You get a little luck
It’s my heart I’m revealing

Lady luck…
Track Name: DON'T BELIEVE WHAT I SAY
Don’t believe what I say
Don’t believe what I say
Don’t believe a word I am telling you
Don’t believe what I say

My name is Marvin, I live in a tree
My little brother is older than me
My mother’s a giant, my father’s a dwarf
My brother’s a hermit, lives under a wharf

Don’t, don’t
Don’t believe what I say…

My uncle eats cabbage, he lives on the moon
He breathes through his ears and he eats with a spoon
His wife is Gemima, she climbs to the stars
Has breakfast on Venus and dinner on Mars

Don’t, don’t
Don’t believe what I say…

None of it’s true
Except I love you

My aunty’s got two legs, my sister’s got four
My granny’s so fat she can’t fit through the door
She looks like a dragon all covered in scales
Her husband’s a dolphin and swims with the whales

Don’t, don’t
Don’t believe what I say…
Track Name: PEEL ME
One potato gonna mash it
Two potato fry and hash it
Three potato cooking chips
Four potato, licking lips
Five potato boil ‘em up
And six potato cheese on top
And seven potato, eight potato, nine ten

Sing, sing with the potato

Peel me
Bake me, roast me, cut me up and toast me
Slice me, mash me, please try not to bash me

Peel me
Boil me, fry me
I don’t want to die me

Eleven potato casserole them
Twelve potato down the hole them
Thirteen potato in a row
Fourteen potato six to go
Fifteen potato shepherds’ pie
Sixteen potato my oh my
Seven potato, eight potato, nine ten

Peel me…

Grow a potato
Got to grow, got to grow potato
Got to grow, oh yeah
Track Name: NO TOAST
No toast
No toast for me
I’m heading out to sea
No toast
No toast for me
A sailor is what I be

Out across the waves
The wind she blows
Mind the rocks below

No toast
No toast for me
I’m sailing across the sea
No toast
Or mouldy bread
A hammock for my head

Seas as big as trees
The ship she flies
Sailors tell no lies

A 1-2-3
A 2-2-3
Boom and a boom and a boom
And a boom
Crash Crash
Boom and a boom
And a go to your room

No toast
No toast for me
I’m heading out to sea
No toast
No toast for me
A sailor is what I be
Track Name: REAL GOOD TIME
My horse run faster than your horse
Your horse is blacker than mine
Put ‘em together in all kinds of weather
And we’ll have a real good time

My pie is sweeter than your pie
Your pie is bigger than mine
Put ‘em together in all kinds of weather
And we’ll have a real good time

Real good time
Real good time when the sun begins to shine
Real good time
Real good time till the stars up in the sky

My voice is higher than your voice
Your voice is lower than mine
Put ‘em together in all kinds of weather
And we’ll have a real good time

My sister’s nicer than your sis
Your brother’s kinder than mine
Put ‘em together in all kinds of weather
And we’ll have a real good time

Real good time…

My bike goes faster than your bike
Your bike is newer than mine
Put ‘em together in all kinds of weather
And we’ll have a real good time

My legs are fatter than your legs
Your legs are longer than mine
Put ‘em together in all kinds of weather
And we’ll have a real good time

Real good time…
Track Name: GET OUT
Get out Get out of your bed
Get out Get out of your room
Get out Get out of your house
Get out Get out Get out Get out

Get out Get out of your chair
Get out Get out of your fridge
Get out Get out of your car
Get out Get out Get out Get out

Bend it and shake it and throw it
Around around around
Jump it and chase it and blow it
Around around around

Get out Get out of your best
Get out Get out of your shoes
Get out Get out of your socks
Get out Get out Get out Get out

Get out Get out of your phones
Get out Get out of your screens
Get out Get out of your box
Get out Get out Get out Get out

Bend it…
Track Name: PARADISE
Got a short fuse
A red hot temper
I get mad May to November

Want to slow down
Open my eyes
‘Cos I live in paradise

I get angry
I get mean
I get nasty ghastly I cause a scene

I get ugly
I blow steam
I jump up and down till my face turns green

Got a short fuse…

I get nowhere
Then I scream
I yell quite a lot but don’t say what I mean

I’m a nightmare
Not a dream
I’m an exploding corroding machine

Got a short fuse…

I get shirty
And I frown
I can’t tell the difference between up and down

I play dirty
I’m a clown
I hiss and I spit and I fall to the ground

Got a short fuse…

I wear trouble
Like a crown
So far underwater I’m starting to drown

Like a bad smell
I’m around
I huff and I puff till I’m run out of town
Track Name: IN YOUR PYJAMAS
In your pyjamas
You stare at the sky
Mercury, Venus and Mars
Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus and others

There’s a lot of blackness
Between all the stars
Light years away
The sun burns a hole in the sky

In the sky
In the sky

Can you see me?
I can see you
Mercury, Venus and Mars
Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus and others

Please send me a message
Like a falling star
Light years away
The sun burns a hole in the sky

In the sky
In the sky
Track Name: POM POM SONG
Pom Pom
Pom Pom
P P P P P Pom Pom
Pom Pom

Where’d you get your pom pom from?
Got my pom pom in Hong Kong
Not too short and not too long
Come and sing the pom pom song

Pom Pom…

Do you wear your pom pom pom
When you play some fast ping pong?
Yes oh yes I ping and pong
Come and sing the pom pom song

Pom Pom …

I will miss your pink pom pom
I will miss it when you’re gone
We will go to Hamilton
Come and sing the pom pom song

Pom Pom…
Track Name: NEED THE BEES
Bees got six knees
And they fly with a humming sound
Buzz from the hive
Every day when the sun shines down

Bees got to go
Cos they know where the pollen lies
Zooming from flower to flower
As the hours go by

We need the bees
Need the bees

Bees like a sweet nectar treat
Suck it up inside
Race back to home
Honeycomb, that’s the food supply

Bees need a queen
Egg machine, she’s a busy girl
Bees come and go
Don’t you know, it’s a buzzy world

We need the bees
Need the bees
