Track Name: Lazy Moon
Lazy moon come out soon
Don't make us wait
We danced in the sun
Now we've had our fun
Now we're ready to lay our heads down
Won't make a sound until you shine down

Lazy Moon, Lazy Moon

But a cloud like a shroud
Covers you
Are you sleeping, are you weeping Mr. moon
I close my eyes I pray the skies
Clear for your light tonight

Lazy Moon, Lazy Moon

Though it's late still we will wait for you
Light the way, bright as day
No one shines as bright as you in the night
As the stars take flight over our heads

Lazy Moon, Lazy Moon
Track Name: Airplane
Airplane, airplane up in the sky
How do you fly?

Spaceship, spaceship
Up in outer space
Have you discovered an alien race?

Helicopter, helicopter
Oh you chopped up the air
Do I need to call an air doctor?

I wish I could fly through the night sky
As an airplane, spaceship, helicopter pilot

Motorcycle, motorcycle oh you carry such a
Light and free load

Taxi cab, Taxi cab
Driving in the big city
Where the lights always shine so pretty

Big yellow bus, big yellow bus
I promise I won't make a fuss
When you come to collect all of us

I wish I could drive through the day time
As a motorcycle, taxi cab, big yellow bus driver

Row boat, row boat
How do you? How do you?
In the ocean float?

Motorboat, motorboat
Skipping across the waves
In a watery blue maize

Battleship, battleship
cruising across the sea
protecting you and me

I would I could sail through the ocean
As a row boat, motorboat, battleship
Captain
Track Name: Rainy Day
I woke up to a gray, gray sky
And I wished I could turn gray to blue
Pitter patter exclaimed the raindrops
As I pulled on my yellow rain boots

Grabbed my umbrella
And went on my way
Singing rain, rain, rain, oh go away

La, la, la, la, la, la

Skip, skip, skip, oh skip to my Lou
I danced through the puddles like a caribou
Use my umbrella as if it were a cane
I'm the king of the world; I'm the queen of the rain

All the grass is greener and the gardens grow
The lakes do rise, and the rivers flow

La, la, la, la, la, la ,la ,la ,la

Patty, patty cake, oh bakers man
Won't you send away this rain as fast as you can?
Angry dark clouds won't you blow away
And come back again another day

Or I'm bound to sing my rainy, rainy day song
Singing rain, rain go away all day long

La, la, la, la, la, la

Stuck my hand out held the last raindrop
This rain parade had decided to stop
Thanks for all the green and thanks for the wet
But I'm glad your gone I don't pretend to be upset

You had your job and you did just fine
Now I'm ready for a little sunshine

La, la, la, la, la , la, la
Track Name: 1,000 Buttons
I would sow a thousand buttons
A thousand buttons on your sweater
To make you feel better

I would build a thousand ladders
A thousand ladders tall
So you would never have to feel small

I would plant a thousand daisies
A thousand daisies deep
Just to keep you near

I would blow up a thousand balloons
A thousand balloons to blow
Just so you would know I'll never let you go

I would do all these things
I would do them for you

I would kiss a thousand monsters
A thousand monsters in all
So you would know I'm not afraid anymore

I would eat a thousand worms
A thousand worms stuck in the dirt
So you would never have to hurt

I would break a thousand bones
A thousand bones to break
Please your love don't ever take

I would invent a thousand colors
A thousand colors to see
Then paint a picture of you and me

I would do all these things
I would do them for you

I would catch a thousand ants
A thousand ants in the sand
Promise you'll always hold my hand

I would read a thousand books
A thousand dusty pages
To see you make one of your silly faces

I would hoot with a thousand owls
A thousand nocturnal friends
Please don't ever let this story time end

I would jump a thousand hops
A thousand hops to jump
I know this love will never stop

I would do all these things
I would do them for you
A thousand ways to say I love you
Track Name: Puff the Magic Dragon
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff,
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff. Oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail,
Noble kings and princes would bow whenever they came,
Pirate ships would lower their flags when Puff roared out his name. Oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys.
One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And Puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.
Without his life-long friend, Puff could not be brave,
So Puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave. Oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee
Track Name: Imagine
Imagine your flying through the cotton candy clouds your safe now
Imagine lying in the green green grass feel your toes sink in at last
Imagine your mother’s warm warm hug as she whispers you are loved
Imagine holding your daddy's hand building castles in the sand

You can be, whatever it is you want to be
So close your eyes and fathom all the beauty you will bring and believe

Imagine your splashing in a creek playing a game of hide and seek
Imagine swinging on a swing drifting in and out of dreams
Imagine you can see what no one else can see and you can be who no one else can be
Imagine now everything's ok like a chocolate chip cookie at the end of the day

You can be whatever it is you want to be
So close your eyes and fathom all the beauty you will bring and believe

Imagine building a fort in the woods wearing yellow capes and red hoods
Imagine you're the king of the town everyone loves it when you come around
Imagine skipping stones on the sea then hunting for treasure you and me
Imagine tomorrow and a day all the friends you'll meet all the games you'll play
Track Name: Michigan
Cotton sheets of cotton
Gracefully hung out to dry

Blue sky a blanket of blue sky
Out my paint chipped window

Lilacs and daffodils smell so good that I could cry
And all the cherry blossoms bloom for miles and miles

It's springtime, springtime, springtime in Michigan

Beaches great lake beaches
My joyful feet in your sand

Sunshine I sail with sunshine
And a touch of wind

Marshmallows sticky marshmallows
I roast in the flame

Shooting stars I watch shooting stars
From the quilt where I lay

It's summer time, summer time, summer time in Michigan

Apples, juicy red apples
In bushels everywhere

Pencils a bouquet of pencils
Patiently wait on my desk

Trees shed their leaves like feathers from a dove
Piled up like pillows for everyone to jump

It's fall time, fall time, fall time in Michigan

Hill tops we sled down hill tops
As fast as we can go

Snow man we built a snow man
When came the first snow

Hot chocolate we sip, hot chocolate let it warm our soul
All the lakes are frozen over so ice fishing we go

It's winter time, winter time, winter time in Michigan
Track Name: By & By
There's a land brighter than day
Our eyes can only see it with faith
Over the way our Father waits
To welcome us to a safe dwelling place

In the sweet by and by
In the sweet by and by
We will meet
You and I
You and I
In the sweet, in the sweet, by and by

We will sing on the beautiful shore
The melodious songs of the blessed
And our spirits shall sorrow no more
Not a sigh for the blessing of rest

In the sweet by and by
In the sweet by and by
We will meet
You and I
You and I
In the sweet, in the sweet, by and by

To my father above
I will offer up my thanks
For the glorious gift of love
And the blessings that hallow our days
