1. Ed the Invisible Dragon

I have a dragon and his name is Ed.
He sleeps in the space at the foot of my bed.
He follows along wherever I go,
But he keeps himself invisible so no one will know.

    He's Ed the invisible dragon, he's Ed the invisible dragon,
    He's Ed the invisible dragon, oh where did that dragon go?

When I'm home after school and I'm looking for a snack,
It's all I can do to hold Ed back,
And when the kitchen's in a mess and Mom has a fit,
I look at Ed and shrug and say, "I didn't do it!"
    It was Ed the invisible dragon, it was Ed the invisible dragon,
    It was Ed the invisible dragon, oh where did that dragon go?
Playing in the rec-room with a bat and a ball
A lamp gets smashed but it's not my fault at all
It was Ed who knocked it down with his pointy, pointy tail,
But no one seems to listen when I begin to wail:
    It was Ed the invisible dragon, it was Ed the invisible dragon,
    It was Ed the invisible dragon, oh where did that dragon go?
So if you notice in your house that things begin to break
And you've taken all the blame that you can take,
You might try looking at the foot of your bed
Don't be surprised if there you see invisible Ed!
    He's Ed the invisible dragon, he's Ed the invisible dragon,
    He's Ed the invisible dragon, oh where did that dragon go?
(spoken)
Hey Ed! Didn't you see him? He was here a minute ago. It was Ed!

3. I Need a Home For My Dinosaur

I need a home for my dinosaur
I need it right away.
I need a home for my dinosaur
My mom wants to give him away
.
I gave him some corn flakes for breakfast
In a china bowl with a spoon
He sure did love those corn flakes
But he also ate the spoon.
    CHORUS
He saw my dad's new slippe rs
In his favourite shade of blue
He ate my dad's new slippers
Now what am I gonna do?
    CHORUS
I'd like to let my sister
Go play in the dinosaur pen
Except he'd probably eat her
And I'd be in trouble again.
    CHORUS

Tag:
My mom wants to give him away.
My mom wants to give him away.
Spoken:
Anybody want a dinosaur? CHEAP!

4. Gramma's Pajamas


Gramma's pajamas are pink with frilly lace.
Gramma's pajamas tickle her face.
Gramma cannot get to sleep, try as she might,
Because those pesky pajamas keep her awake all night.

Lace around the collar and lace down by her toes.
Why she wears those jammies, why, nobody knows.
Insomnia is very real, she's tired, and her fate is sealed,
That lacy pink nightie has got to go, I tell you!

Gramma's pajamas are pink with frilly lace.
Gramma's pajamas tickle her face.
Gramma cannot get to sleep, try as she might,
Because those pesky pajamas keep her awake all night.

Gramma and Grampa crawl into bed.
They pull the covers up to their head.
Grampa doesn't get much sleep, try as he might,
Because my Gramma's loud giggling keeps him awake all night.

Chorus

Gramma is tired because she cannot sleep.
She drinks hot milk and she even counts sheep.
Gramma says, "Oh mercy me, that lace will not stop tickling me!"
So, Gramma give up, surrender, A.S.A.P.

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

Chorus

Gramma's pajamas are pink with frilly lace.
Gramma's pajamas tickle her face.
Gramma cannot get to sleep, try as she might,
Because those pesky pajamas keep her awake all night. I tell you,

Chorus

Yes sir, my Gramma's pajamas keep her awake all night.

5. The Best One for the Job


I am not a pirate or a sailor or a rogue
I cannot fight a fire, or circumvent the globe
But you see I am me, and I think you'll all agree,
I really am the best one for the job.
No one else can smile exactly just the way I do.
No one has my sparkle in their eye.
I must be the only person suited to be me,
So no one else need even go an dtry to do it.
    CHORUS
No one else can feel the sunlight shining on my face.
None can use my legs to jump up high.
When it comes to being me I really must be frank,
I have the job sewn up so don't apply to do it.
    CHORUS
Every single person is a special entity,
I cannot be you, you can't be me.
Run and jump and celebrate the person that you are,
Be happy with yourself, that is the key (so do it).
    CHORUS
Tag: I really am the best one for the job.

6. Cool Bob

I had an awesome kitty who had a crooked tail.
He was black and white and orange and he studied Jazz at Yale.
Since I was known as "Cool Bob", I named my cat the same,
So Cool Bob man and Cool Bob cat went to Hollywood for fame.
They asked us when we got there, "What can you Cool Bobs do?"
"We can play some groovin' music. Have a listen, here's a tune."

I love to play piano and Bob cat, he loves to drum,
And both of us together, we tap our toes and hum.
We will play a lot of concerts (we musicians call them gigs),
We will play the kind of music that the music critics dig.
We'll rock and roll all mornin' and sign autographs at noon,
We'll sell them for a dollar and make millions pretty soon.

(nice job, Bob)
(thanks, cat)

We were gettin' kinda hungry and we had no place to go.
We knew we had to make a plan and make ourselves some dough.
We found an old guitar case and we set it on the street.
We played our groovin' music with the happ'nin' dancin' beat.
The people threw in money as they listened to our act.
We're Cool Bob man, the person,
and Cool Bob cat, the cat... Yeah!

Bye Roberto
See ya later Bob-o
See you later, alligator
In a while... cat.

7. The "Can't Wait 'Til I'm Older So I Can Wish I Were Younger" Blues


Can't wait 'til I'm older, and get my own car.
A sporty red model, so I can go far.
I'll be paying for bank loans insurance and gas,
Repair work, inspections and tune-ups.
I've got the "can't wait 'til I'm older so I can wish I were younger" blues.

Can't wait 'til I'm older, and get a great job.
I'll make lots of money, just piles and gobs
I'll have to pay taxes, a mortgage, deductions galore,
And work overtime to get more.
Oh I've got the "can't wait 'til I'm older so I can wish I were younger" blues.

Can't wait 'til I'm older, and get my own place
And then my dear mother won't be in my face.
I'll do my own cleaning and cooking and shopping and laundry
And errands and pay my own bills.
Oh I've got the "can't wait 'til I'm older so I can wish I were younger" blues.

8. No More School for Me! (Winter)


One, two, three feet,
Let it snow, or hail, or sleet.
Send it all our way.
Four, five, six feet,
Lovely, frozen winter treat.
We will have no school today.

We love school it's true, it's true,
But we adore our beds.
We love going off to school
But we'd rather sleep instead!

One, two, three feet,
We must repeat,
Snow keep falling please.
Four, five, six feet,
This is so neat!
No more school for me.

Chorus

In the winter it is cold, icy winds will blow.
We don't mind the chilly air as long as there is lots of snow!

One, two, three feet,
Snow is so sweet.
We will have such fun.
Four, five, six feet,
Pile it high and pile it deep,
Lots of snow for ev'ryone.

Chorus

No More School For Me (Summer Version)

One, two, three weeks,
Bring on summer sun and heat.
Send it all our way.
Four, five, six weeks,
Lovely, golden summer treat.
We will have no school today.

We love school it's true, it's true,
But we adore our beds.
We love going off to school
But we'd rather sleep instead!

One, two, three weeks,
We must repeat,
Sun keep shining please.
Four, five, six weeks,
This is so neat!
No more school for me.

We love school it's true, it's true,
But we adore our beds.
We love going off to school
But we'd rather sleep instead!

In the summer when it's hot, barbecues will glow.
We don't mind the summer heat, even if there's grass to mow!

One, two, three weeks,
Summer is sweet.
We will have such fun.
Four, five, six weeks,
Toughen up those tender feet,
Lots of sun for ev'ryone.

We love school it's true, it's true,
But we adore our beds.
We love going off to school
But we'd rather sleep instead!

9. Bedtime Tango


When it is time for bed and I don't want to go,
That moment seems the perfect time for dancing the Tango.
I tango 'round my room, I dance with great finesse
I tango 'til my mother says, "Stop dancing, it's bedtime.
It's bedtime, stop dancing."

When it is time for bed, and I don't want to go,
That moment seems the perfect time for reading a story.
I like the one the best about the dinosaurs.
I read until my mother says, "Stop reading, it's bedtime.
It's bedtime, stop reading."

When it is time for bed and I don't want to go,
That moment seems the perfect time for playing, for playing.
I play with all my toys that are not put away.
I play until my mother says, "Stop playing, it's bedtime.
It's bedtime, stop playing."

I tango and I read and play,
But most of all I like to tango. ("Stop dancing.")
But most of all I like to tango.
Good night. Good night. Good night.

10. Sleep Gently, Tiny Child

Sleep gently tiny child, Mother watch is keeping.
Rest gently, tiny babe as you dream and sleep.

Morning is coming soon, sunlight will come creeping.
Rest now, 'til morning comes, sleep, dear small one, sleep.

Rock gently, tiny child, Mother's arms enfold you.
Hush, hear the lullaby. Sleep, dear baby, sleep.

11. Just Passing By

    Just passing by, just passing by,
    I'm on my way, on my way to forever.
    I'll say goodbye, though I may hate to see this end,
    Just passing by, I will not pass this way again.
This is just a resting place and so we must go on.
But we'll take our memories and cherish every one.
We say farewell to friends, the laughter and the fun,
But we know life's journey has only just begun.
    CHORUS
Our future is unknown it's like an open door;
Bidding us to go where we have never been before.
I'm not afraid to go ahead, but please lend me your hand,
The future's not so fright'ning when you face it with a friend.
    CHORUS
As we pass by, as we pass by,
We're on our way, on our way to forever.
Don't say goodbye, our mem'ries will not let this end,

Sing we together in celebration
Joining our voices sing.
