Track Name: Big Kid
They think that I'm too little, but they don't really know
I am a big kid, and I am gonna grow
They think that I'm too little, but they don't really know
I am a big kid, it's time to let it show

I'm gonna walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk walk
That's what I'll do
I'm gonna talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk talk
Oh yes it's true
I'm gonna hop hop hop hop hop hop hop hop hop
Up to the moon
Until I'm tired and then I'll stop
And sing this song to you

They say that I'm too little, they say that I'm too small
I am a big kid, I'm gonna be so tall
They say that I'm too little, they say that I'm too small
I am a big kid, it's time to show them all

Track Name: Washing Windows
We're washing all the windows on a big high-rise
Scrubbing in the bubbles moving side to side
So high up in the sky you won't believe your eye
We're washing it all away

We count the first floor then we get a little bit higher
Second floor then we get a little bit higher
Third floor then we get a little bit higher
Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten
When we hit the top we're gonna do it again

Track Name: Blue Today
I’m being blue today
Even when my friends they call me to play
There’s just one thing I’m gonna say
I’m gonna say hey
I’m being blue today

We can bounce round my head like a disco pilot
If you be red we can make violet
Me and you being colors too
Change your hue and we make maroon
Today I’m being blue today

Look at these colors all around
If we all get together we would be brown
Downtown dancing around everybody’s just being brown

Today, I’m being blue today
I said hey I’m being blue today
I’m being blue today
I’m being blue today
I’m being blue today
I’m being blue today

Track Name: Great White Shark
Oh I got a great big secret in my swimming pool
And if daddy's says I can keep it I'm gonna play with him after school
I found him swimming in the ocean said Johnny was his name
He's got some fins and a big old grin and he knows all my favorite games

Great White Shark Great White Shark I gotta Great White Shark
Ok he bites but he doesn't bark I gotta Great White Shark
Great White Shark Great White Shark Johnny's my Great White Shark
He helps me with math cuz he's so smart I gotta Great White Shark

The other kids have puppies, bunnies and kitties too
But I just feel so lucky for all the things that Johnny can do!
He can dance, splash about, sing the whole day through
I'm never alone when Johnny's at home and he cooks a mean fish stew...

Great White Shark Great White Shark I gotta Great White Shark
Ok he bites but he doesn't bark I gotta Great White Shark
Great White Shark Great White Shark Johnny's my Great White Shark
He helps me with math cuz he's so smart I gotta Great White Shark

Track Name: The Sharing Song
Sometimes my hair is short sometimes mine’s long
Sometimes I feel like painting a picture other times I feel like singing a song
Variety is the spice of life, three left turns is the same as a one that’s right
Every today turns into tonight before long

You’ve got to share with your neighbor oh share with the ones that you love
And when you share with your neighbor it’s the whole wide world we’re all thinking of, thinking of

Some pets are dogs some pets are cats… MEOW!
Some people live in a house on a farm, other people live in city flats
The earth is spinning round the sun, time well spent's time having fun
A song is still a song even when that song is sung flat

You’ve got to share with your neighbor oh share with the ones that you love
And when you share with your neighbor it’s the whole wide world we’re all thinking of, we’re thinking of
