Track Name: Hop to It!
My mama used to tell me when I was just a boy
If you want to grow up happy, you gotta fill your life with joy
When somebody calls you and says, "Hey, come out and play!"
Jump at the opportunity, listen to what I say

You gotta hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it

Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it

Do do do do you want to have a good day? This is how it starts
Wake up in the morning feeling happy in your heart
If someone should ask you, "Do you wanna dance?"
Come on, don't be shy now, you gotta jump at the chance

You gotta hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it

Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it

Alright everybody, let's hop to it now!
Get yourselves movin' and groovin'!

Do do do do you want to know a secret? I've got one for you
If you want to live a good life there's one thing you should do
When you see someone unhappy who needs a helping hand
Jump at the chance to be a friend, give all the love you can

You gotta hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it

Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Hop to it, do do do do
Like a happy rabbit, you gotta hop to it

Do do do do do
Track Name: The Banana Song
This is the banany song! So here we go...

Bananas are yummy! (Yummy!)
And you can put whip cream on them (Whip cream!)
You can also eat them with strawberries (Strawberries!)
And you have to peel them (Peel them!)
You can make a robot chop them up for you (Robot!)
And I'm gonna sing it with bananas (Bananas!)

I like bananas, you like bananas
He likes bananas, she likes bananas
They like bananas, we like bananas
Can you understand-a why we like bananas
Go down to Havana, sit in a cabana
Wearing your pajamas, eating a banana

I like bananas
I eat bananas all day long
Do you like bananas?
Won't you come and sing along
Peel one for you and me
We share it under the banana tree

Bananas are yummy! (Yummy!)
And you can put whip cream on them (Whip cream!)
You can also eat them with strawberries (Strawberries!)
And you have to peel them (Peel them!)
You can make a robot chop them up for you (Robot!)
And I'm gonna sing it with bananas (Bananas!)
Track Name: Three Green and Speckled Frogs
(Spoken word interlude)

Three green and speckled frogs
Sitting on a speckled log
Eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum!)
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there's only two green speckled frogs
Sittin' on that log

(Spoken word interlude)

Two green and speckled frogs
Sitting on a speckled log
Eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum!)
One jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there's only one green speckled frog
Sittin' on that log

(Spoken word interlude)

One green and speckled frog
Sitting on a speckled log
Eating the most delicious bugs (yum yum!)
She jumped into the pool
Where it was nice and cool
Now there are no more green speckled frogs
On that log

Those green and speckled frogs
Sittin’ all alone in the bog, where it’s cool
They went a-swimmin’, laughin’ and a-grinnin’
Now there are no more green speckled frogs
Sittin’ on a log

Track Name: The Kazoo Bird Song
(Spoken word interlude)

The Kazoo Bird is a funny little thing
He's got little feathers and he's got little wings
And his colorful beak sounds silly when he sings
And this is what he sounds like

bzzz-bzzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzz bzzz bzzz bzzz

(Spoken word interlude)

I saw the Kazoo Bird hoppin' down the street
Funniest creature that I ever did meet
With a pointy little head and funny webbed feet
And this is what he sounds like

bzzz-bzzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzz bzzz bzzz bzzz

The Kazoo Bird makes such a wonderful sound
He likes to sing as he hops around
He flaps his wings in the big blue sky
You can hear this song as he flies on by

bzzz-bzzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzz bzzz bzzz bzzz

Now hush, everybody and don't make a peep
The little Kazoo Bird is falling asleep
I think he might snore, listen with me
This is what he snores like

bzzz-bzzz snore
bzz-bzz snore
bzz-bzz snore
bzz-bzz bzz bzzz bzzz snort!

I think he's awake!

bzzz-bzzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzz bzzz bzzz bzzz

The Kazoo Bird makes such a wonderful sound
He likes to sing as he hops around
He flaps his wings in the big blue sky
You can hear this song as he flies on by

bzzz-bzzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzzz bzzz bzzzz
bzz-bzz bzz bzzz bzzz bzzz

Track Name: The Arithmetic Song
Numbers can be fun
We start with number one
Then come two and three
Bring me back and we
Will count to four
And five is just one more

One and one are two
Now I sing with you
Two and two are four
Bring me back for more
To sing with you
'Cause one and one are two

Three and three are six
See how numbers mix
Five and five are ten
Bring me back again
To sing with you
'Cause one and one are two

Four and four are eight
We can hardly wait
To learn this song ourselves
Six and six are twelve
Seven and seven are fourteen
Eight and eight are sixteen
Nine and nine are eighteen
And twenty is ten plus ten

There's so much we can do
With numbers, yes it's true
Bring me back again
And we will count to ten
Just me and you
'Cause one and one are two

One, two, three, four, five
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten
Count with me and then
Bring me back again
To sing with you
'Cause one and one are two

Won't you come outside and play, I say
Won't you come outside and play
