Track Name: Putt Putt
I’m gonna buy me a motor boat
And we’ll go putt putt over the ocean
I’m gonna buy me a motor boat
And we’ll go putt putt, putt putt

I don’t want a big commotion
And like all the fishes know
There is a lot of ocean
And I don’t care where we go

I’m gonna buy me a motor boat
And we’ll go putt putt over the ocean
I’m gonna buy me a motor boat
And we’ll go putt putt, putt putt

When I am old, old & grey
I’m going to chop my helicopter
And I’ll zoom my aeroplane
But I’m still young, young these days
I’m going to put back to the back of my head
These daydreams and instead

I’m gonna buy me a motor boat
And we’ll go putt putt over the ocean
I’m gonna buy me a motor boat
And we’ll go putt putt

Set this boat in motion
I’m gonna set this boat in motion
Putt putt, putt putt
Track Name: Fish and Mice
Every night I’ve been dreaming about sounds
Every night I’m as quiet as a mouse
(Mouse)
Some colours go together
And a circle has no end
And the stars will shine forever
And you are my best friend
You are my best friend

Every night I’ve been dreaming about houses
(Houses)
Every night I’m as quiet as the mouses
(Mice!)
Some colours go together
And a circle has no end
And the stars will shine forever
And you are my best friend
You are my best friend

One…
One, two, three four

Oh, fishes
Fish!
Oh, bicycle
Bike!
Oh, living
Life!
Oh, mouses
Mice!

Every night I dream that I can fly
Every night I fly across the sky
Some colours go together
And a circle has no end
And the world will turn forever
And you are my best friend
You are my best friend

Oh, fishes
Fish!
Oh, bicycle
Bike!
Oh, living
Life!
Oh, mouses
Mice!
Track Name: The Seasons
In the winter
The days are shorter
The sun goes to bed early in the cold sky
And by the fire, we warm our toes
And go to bed early in our warm clothes

In the springtime
In the sunshine
All the flowers grow so high!
And I like to ride my bike
Past the roses in the park

These are the seasons as I see them
They cannot see me
They don’t have eyes!
These are the seasons as I see them
We’re in seasons all the time

In the summer
I could hum for half an hour
Hum, hum, hum, hum
Like a bee does over flowers
Going buzz buzz past our house

These are the seasons as I see them
They cannot see me
They don’t have eyes!
These are the seasons as I see them
We’re in seasons all the time

In the autumn
All the leaves turn golden colours
Like a fire burning so bright
Like a satellite up in space, past the sky

These are the seasons as I see them
They cannot see me
They don’t have eyes!
These are the seasons as I see them
Autumn, winter, spring and summertime
Autumn, winter, spring and summertime
Track Name: Diamonds Are So Shiny
Deep down in a hole in the ground
I found something so shiny and round

Big blue sky, did you know I could bounce so high?
Higher than the sparrows fly
On a wing and a pray
Like the aeroplanes, flying over my house again
Faster than the fastest train
And they go so far away

I have a deck of cards!
And I’m in love with the two of hearts
I dug a hole with the ace of spades
I found a bone and some clay
And an old golf ball
That I hit around with my four of clubs
(Fore!)
All the way to the baseball field
Which they call a diamond
So shiny

Deep down in a hole in the ground
I found something so shiny and round
Diamonds are so shiny!
Deep down in a hole in the ground
I found something so shiny and round
Diamonds are so shiny!

What makes a shadow?
On the ground
What makes a shadow follow me around?
Well, my shadow don’t have nowhere else to go
No, no, no, no, no, no, no

What makes an echo?
Make a sound
What makes an echo follow me around?
Well, my echo don’t have nowhere else to go
No, no, no, no, no, no, no

Can you say yes?
Yes!
Can you say no?
No!

Track Name: Hello Tiger (feat. Darren Hanlon)
Hello tiger, hello tiger
Gosh it’s nice to meet you
Well, hello lion, hello lion
Listen to me greet you
What’s up sheepy? What’s up sheepy?
You’re looking kind of sheepish
What’s the matter?
Can’t you stand the company I’m keeping?

C’mon rabbit, c’mon rabbit
What you gonna do?
You ate all the carrots
All the carrots
I can see right through you
Like you’ll be seeing all the people
Even in the darkness
Carrots so bright make your eyes
Carrots so bright make your eyesight
Sharper than the sharpest knife

Hello tiger, hello tiger
Gosh it’s nice to meet you
Well, hello lion, hello lion
Listen to me greet you
What’s up sheepy? What’s up sheepy?
You’re looking kind of sheepish
What’s the matter?
Can’t you stand the company I’m keeping?

Track Name: See the World
First you put the water on the garden
Then the garden grows
And did you know that a cloud is made of raindrops?
And when it’s cold they turn to snow?
Then the snow it falls on the mountain
Where all the people ski
And in the summertime it melts into the river
And it all flows out to sea

See all the world!
Where people talk
And people learn
That the sun tends to burn
And turns the world

First you put the water on the garden
Then the garden grows
And did you know that a cloud is made of raindrops?
And when it’s cold they turn to snow?
Then the snow it falls on the mountain
Where all the people ski
And in the summertime it melts into the river
And it all flows out to…

See all the world!
Where people talk
And people learn
That the sun tends to burn
And turns the world
Track Name: Always Be Young
There is a frypan
There is a saucepan
And I like to make eggs
There is a tin can
There is a spaceman
And he walks on his legs

Singing this song
All day long
Kicking my feet to the chorus
We’ll always be young

If you can, then I can
We have sung, we all sang
And we said what we said
I have two hands
A bird has a wingspan
And we think with our heads

Singing this song
All day long
Kicking my feet the chorus
We’ll always be young
