Track Name: UN MOMENTO
I was running and dropping
My things on the ground
I was tripping upstairs
With my hair falling down
I was fumbling and stumbling
And out of my head
I was all hot and bothered
Till somebody said

Una Momento

I was running to ballet
And racing to gym
I was screaming cross town
To be taught how to swim
Between step-parent B
And step-parent A
I was pushed I was pulled
Please somebody say

Una Momento

Wait just a minute
Hang on a sec
No need to hurry
Slow down
We’ll get there yet

Una Momento

I was huffing and puffing
And losing my breath
I was pushed to the brink
I was close to the edge
I was tied up in knots
I was hung by a thread
I was totally crazy
Till somebody said

Una Momento
Track Name: WE ALL ARE ANIMALS
Hey Birdbrain
I think I smell a rat
You missed me by a whisker
You big scaredy cat

Do the duck for cover
Get your feet wet
With your crocodile tears
That’s all you’re going to get

Floats like a butterfly
Stings like a bee
Something smells fishy to me
We all are animals

Hey hogwash
You eat like a pig
Cock-a-doodle-doo
You’re bigger than big

Like a possum in a headlight
Like a kitten in a sack
C’mon ugly duckling
Let’s quack quack quack

Hey Dogbreath
Find your own way home
Tickle me tiger
Work your fingers to the bone

Do the cheeky monkey
Swing from a tree
Let’s all go bananas
1 2 3
Track Name: I WON'T GET IN THE CHOIR
I won’t get in the choir
If I don’t sing any higher

I can sing low
Oh so low
In the ground I go

High high sing a little higher high high high
High high sing a little higher try try try

I made it to the choir
Cos I sang a little higher
I can sing high
I can sing low
Up into the sky
In the ground I go
Track Name: FRUIT FOR THOUGHT
A mandarin
A pair of pears
Fruit for thought
Peel a banana

A nectarine
A raspberry
Fruit for thought
Feijoa

A coconut
A pineapple
Fruit for thought
Cherry
Track Name: WASPITAL
Curse you
You stung me
I think you know it was wrong

Bumble
You bee-ed me
I may be down but not for long

Take me to the Waspital
I need help

How did
You find me
You’ve flown into my life again

Why must
You hurt me
Your poison darts get under my skin

Doctor
Please fix me
My heart is sorely in need of repair

Bind me
And stitch me
Give me all your Waspital care
Track Name: BLACK SOCKS
I’ve got to go to the laundry
To find where the black socks go
Where do they go?

I hid them in the fridge
I stuffed them in the hedgerow
I baked them and I ate them
And I taught them how to spit
I left them in the rain
Cos I don’t give a shiver me timbers

I hope you never find them
Cos I hid them
In the oven
Where they’ll burn and turn to ashes
And I’ll take them to the garden
And bury them in a big black hole
Track Name: HAPPITY
Happity skipped and Happity hopped
But Happity couldn’t get over it all
He pricked up his ears
He picked up his feet
But tripped on his tail and everyone saw
The fumbliest stumbliest bunny of all
His feet are too big
And his teeth are too small

Happity Happity Happity Happity
Lives in a burrow in Palmerston North

Happity wished and Happity hoped
That some little bunny would give him a call
Cos all of the rabbits of Manawatu
Were going to go to the Rabbity Ball
His brothers and sisters and uncles and aunts
Were learning the steps to the rabbity dance

Happity drooped and Happity sighed
A rabbity tear fell onto his paw
The onliest loneliest rabbit, he thought
Cos no-one would ask him to go to the ball
He looked out the window and what did he saw
Miss Hippity Hop from the burrow next door

Miss Hippity Hop looked sadder than sad
Her teeth were too big and her feet were too small
She wanted to go but no-one would ask
Miss Hippity Hop to the Rabbity Ball
Then Happity saw that he might have a chance
“Miss Hippity Hop do you know how to dance?”

Miss Hippity Hop said “Why yes I do”
And bunnily showed him a dance step or two
And Happity’s heart went skippity beat
Cos she didn’t notice his very large feet
They danced in the moonlight and everyone saw
Hip Hop and Happity having a ball
Track Name: ROADWORKS CHORALE
Roadworks now
Fast slow
Stop go
Roadworks now

Bitumen
Overalls O
Roadworks now

Dig down deep
Hard hats
Roadworks now
Track Name: MAGICAL POTION
Cut your
Toenails
Put them into a jar
Add some
Earwax
Sweeten with brown sugar

It’s a magical potion
It’s a magical stew
It’s disgusting for me
It’s disgusting for you

Stir with
Toothbrush
Give it a good hard shake
Add some
Cat food
Into the oven to bake

For a
Topping
Dribble a little spit
Add a
Cockroach
Who would have thought of it

Give it
To your
Mother to indigest
If she
Eats it
You have achieved success
Track Name: ONE STEP FORWARD
It’s grey today
My plane can’t fly away
All I can see
Is where I’d rather be

One step forward
Two steps back

My wing fell off
And I’ve a nasty cough
All I can do
Is wait for Doctor Who

I’m standing still
By the window sill
Here comes the rain
It’s cold and wet again
Track Name: MEANIE
I only love you
When you’re beautiful
I only love you
When you’re good
I only love you
When you do what I say
And you know that you should

A meanie
A meanie old me
A meanie

I only love you
When you’re well behaved
I only love you
When you’re sweet
I only love you
When you’re nice to me
And you deserve a treat

I only love you
When you’re popular
I only love you
When you’re cute
I only love you
When your teeth are clean
And that’s the honest truth
Track Name: MOO
If you don’t
You do
You know you didn’t you don’t you do
Until the cows come home

On your feet
A shoe
A shouldn’t a shan’t a shoe
To walk a kilometer or two
Until the cows come home

Moo
Track Name: HOLIDAY
On a holiday in Polynesia
Sitting underneath the coconut trees
Sun is shining on the pretty blue sea
When a big fat coconut fell on me

On a holiday in Australia
Kangarooses on the hop all daylia
Sitting underneath the old gum tree
When a blue-tongued lizard took a piece of me

On a holiday in the Antarctic
Took my snowshoes and my sharpest ice pick
Played with penguins in the freezing sea
When a hump backed whale got a crush on me

On a holiday in old New Zealand
Grass is greener and the sheep are clean and
Birds are singing in the totara tree
When an earthquake shook itself all over me
Track Name: FRET NOT
Fret not
Fret not
Worries on your mind
Keeping you from sleeping
In the night

Fret not
Fret not
Worry lullaby
Leads you to a peaceful dream
Tonight

Sleep and before long
All your troubles
Will be gone
