Track Name: Travellin'
goin' on a road trip, 1 2 3

'cause we're a-travelin', travelin'
oh travelin', travelin'
we're a-travelin', travelin'
travelin' down the road
goin' down the road feelin' oh-so-fine
trancin' on the rhythm of the center line
big wheels turnin' round and round
on a grand adventure we are bound
I got my map and my compass, they're the best
for tellin' me north south east and west
but what's in the middle, does anyone know?
I guess WE are, wherever we go!
oh no, oh no it's a traffic JAM, JAM, JAM,

goin' on a road trip 123
goin' on a road trip, my friends and me

I guess we better just get out and walk
Track Name: Happy Fluffy

you're gonna laugh so hard
you fall to the ground
because you're happy fluffy!

you know music is magic
it can save the day
so you better be on your way

then it's your turn to
jump into the middle

first you feel the rhythm wigglin' your toes
then you feel it sneakin' on up your spine
pretty soon it's shakin' your shakin' your booty

jump into the middle

Track Name: Super Hero
sometimes I feel a little bit scared
and sometimes I feel a little shy
sometimes I feel a little bit cranky
and sometimes I even wanna cry
but when the chips are down and the day's in trouble
well then I'm brave, I'm super brave
then I'm strong, I'm super strong
'cause the day needs me to do a super save
everyone has a super power to share. to make the world a better place
it might be singin' or dancin' or drawin' or jammin'
or puttin' a smile on someone else's face
and when you use it you're a super hero (wah-oo-wow!)
oh you're super cool (super cool)
travelin' from there to here-o (here-o)
doin' what you do, what you do
sometimes I feel a little bit mad
and sometimes I get pretty mean
sometimes I can be rather naughty
and sometimes I even wanna scream
but when the day is failin' and the swan is singin'
I look within to find my super star
my supergeek my superfreak
'cause what I do best, that's my super power!
everyone has a super power to share, to make the world a better place
it might be buildin' or countin' or writin' or rescuin'
or puttin' a smile on someone else's face
I can run like the wind, fly to Mars
leap to the moon and juggle the stars
I can walk on water, swim like a fish
spin a ring around the rosie like a whirling dervish
I can stick to a skyscraper or a mountain
climb 'em right side up and upsidedowntain
got a wish in my heart and a trail to blaze
I'm strong and brave and a little bit crazy
I got super powers and so do you baby
yes yes yes I don't mean maybe
our job, we do it real well, is to use our powers for good, never for evil!
everyone has a super power to share, to make the world a better place
it might be runnin' or jumpin' or swimmin' or flyin'
fixin' or teachin' or multiplyin', talkin' or listenin' or simplifyin'
playin' or healin' or workin' or feelin', or puttin' a smile on someone else's face
we're saving the day, we're saving the day…
Track Name: Towel Tango
my towel is oh so versatile
when I wear it I always smile
my towel can be a lovely skirt
my towel can even be a party shirt
there are so many ways in which I wear it
my towel can be long flowing hair it
can even be a fancy silly hat
it sits upon my head just like that
ba dum ba dum ba da dum ah!…

to do the towel tango
you hold your partner just so
one arm around each other's waists
the other out in front of your faces
now choose a path and walk like this
first slow, slow, then quick, quic,k switch!
now switch direction, go the other way
now swoop your partner in a dip, hoorayAH!
slow, slow, quick quick switch!
slow, slow, quick quick switch!

it lives within you everywhere I gooooooAH!
Track Name: Partner Dance
take your partner by the hand
and give a little bow
spin a ring around the rosie
I know you know how
jump up and down like a speckled frog
go bouncin' 'round the room
make some rollin' thunder now
make your feet go crash and boom!
don't forget to bounce around
your bellybutton too!
ring around the rosie
pocket full of posies
ashes ashes ashes
we all fall down
take your partner by the hand
and give a little squeeze
quiver your head and shoulders
and shiver your toes and knees
shake your head no no no
and nod your head yup
eat up all your ice cream
we'll have pickles after supper
raise your glass to the chef
that means put your cup up
ring around the rosie…
cows in the grassy meadow
eating up those butter cups
ashes ashes ashes
we all jump up
take your partner by the hand
and give a little wink
how huge can you grow up
how teeny-tiny can you shrink down
pat-a-cake pat-a-cake bakers man
and pat-a-cake bakers woman
gimme 5 and gimme 10
one more time let's do it again
gimme 5 and gimme 10
do it again and again and again
and again and again and again and
again….
ring around the rosie…
cows in the grassy meadow…
horses in the pasture
nibblin' on some hay
ashes ashes ashes
we all swing and sway
kitty cat on the barn roof
groomin' her glossy coat
ashes ashes ashes
we all rock and row the boat
ducks in a little duck pond
divin' for peanuts
ashes ashes ashes
we all waddle and strut
goats diggin' through the trash heap
chompin' down some junk
ashes ashes ashes
we like funk, a-chicka-ow! chick-achickens
in the hen house
layin' a bunch of eggs
ashes ashes ashes
we all shake an arm and a leg
rooster swaggerin' 'round the barnyard
cockling his doodle doo
ashes ashes ashes
we all say, "I love you!
sheep chillin' in the green fields
shearin' off some fleece
ashes ashes ashes
we all make peace
pigs in a muddy puddle
chowin' down on some slop
ashes ashes ashes
we all just stop!
