Track Name: Sparky the Giant Squid
I remember when I was a kid
We had a really awesome pet
He was a tiny little squid
In a bowl, by the TV set
He was really cute, his name was Sparky
He was a happy little soul
But he grew a bit more every day
We had to get a bigger bowl

CHORUS:
And he ate big fish little fish fat fish skinny fish all day long
Big fish little fish fat fish skinny fish all day long
With a great big slurping sound (slurp!)
Waving all his tentacles around.

Now that he had room to swim and play
Sparky liked his bigger bowl I think
But he grew a bit more every day
We had to put him in the sink
He was very helpful I must say
And he always gave the dishes a good scrub
But he grew a bit more every day
We had to put him in the tub

CHORUS

He was very helpful like I said
He folded all the towels for us
He even cleaned the bathroom cupboard
And he never made a fuss
But when we had guests they couldn’t wash their hands
Coz they’d scream and panic and all that malarky
They'd say “There’s a giant squid living in your bathtub!”
“Oh for heaven’s sake,” we’d say, ‘it’s only Sparky!”

CHORUS

But we knew that it was time to set him free
And we put him in the ocean with a sigh
He swam away quite happily
Waving one tentacle goodbye
He met a lady squid and fell in love
Their underwater wedding was spectacular
They had eighty little babies
Very cute, and very... well ... tentacular

CHORUS
And they eat big fish little fish fat fish skinny fish all day long
Big fish little fish fat fish skinny fish all day long
With a great big slurping sound
Waving all their tentacles around
Waving all their tentacles around!
Track Name: Space Rabbits of Brocklevoons
I woke up in the morning, I wanted cereal
I went into the kitchen to get myself a bowl
And while I sat there eating, there was a flash of light
Suddenly in front of me appeared a freaky sight
They looked like normal rabbits except that they were pink
Wearing little space suits, standing in the sink, they said:
“Greetings earthling, we come from Brocklevoons
Do not try to stop us, we’re here to take your spoons!”

CHORUS:
Space Rabbits of Brocklevoons landed in my kitchen because they needed spoons
Space Rabbits of Brocklevoons landed in my kitchen because they needed spoons
Oh! bounce bounce b- b- b- bounce b- b- b- b- bounce
Left left, right right, round and round and pounce – hey! (repeat)

I gave them all my spoons, they took me in their ship
We travelled through the universe very very quick
Their little eyes were worried, their little eyes were grave
They said "we're in a hurry coz we've got ducks to save!"

CHORUS

We got to Brocklevoons, we landed by a lake
I could see the rabbits had made a big mistake
They'd tried to make a place where they could jump and hop
They turned the lake to jelly so they could bounce on top
But no one told the ducks and all the ducks got stuck
Stuck inside the jelly, what awful rotten luck
We had to eat the jelly, we had to set them free
We took our spoons and got to work, the space rabbits and me

CHORUS

The ducks were very cross, the rabbits said: "Don't worry,
We won't do it again, we're very very sorry!"
The ducks forgave the rabbits and it began to rain
Everyone was happy, the lake filled up again
And then they took me home and gave me back my spoons
And told me I was welcome any time on Brocklevoons
My cereal was waiting but after all that jelly
I couldn't fit another thing into my big fat belly

CHORUS
Track Name: Big Bang (The Great Big Incredible Magnificent Extraordinary Legendary Fabulous Explosion)
Many years ago there was a big bang,
That made our universe appear
It made all our planets,
It’s the reason that we’re here
But nobody knows if it really went bang
Or pop, kaboom or only puff
And since it made eighty billion galaxies
I’ve found a new name coz big isn’t big enough

CHORUS
The great big incredible magnificent extraordinary legendary fabulous explosion
It's the great big incredible magnificent extraordinary legendary fabulous explosion

It made moons and asteroids, dark matter, dust and voids
Black holes, comets, all the stars
Planets like Earth, Venus and Mars
There are places that we’ll never know
Coz they’re too far away for us to go
The universe stretches side to side 93 billion light years wide

CHORUS

Ooh this miracle is bigger than anything
Bigger than a million elephants
And ooh this miracle is bigger than anything
Bigger than Godzilla’s underpants
This is bigger than the queen of Sheba
This is bigger than Justin Bieber
It’s the biggest game in town, the biggest game around

CHORUS
Track Name: Scaredy Cat
You can't help being afraid
Fizzing round like lemonade
No, it doesn't mean a thing:
Get out there my friend and swing!
Come on, get up off the bench: ya
gonna have a great adventure
Scaredy cat, I believe in you

CHORUS
Scaredy cat, that's okay
Scaredy cat, try it anyway
Scaredy cat, I believe in you
Scaredy cat, that's okay
Scaredy cat, try it anyway
I'm a scaredy cat: if I can do it, you can too

Nerves that get you on the night
Heebie-jeebies, stage fright
Everybody gets them too
Don't think that it's only you
Once you start, you'll be fine
You'll have a good old funny time
Scaredy Cat I believe in you

CHORUS
Track Name: The Bears Who Will Not Behave
There are bears who hide behind lampposts
There are bears who call everyone Dave
There are bears who only jump sideways
These bears who will not behave

They like to go down to the city
and start up a Mexican wave
These bears are wonderfully witty
These bears who will not behave

CHORUS
And they love to sing:
"We love to eat salmon
We love to eat trifle with cream."
Yes they love to sing:
"After hibernation we go out and swim in the stream ...

Eem ... stream ... beam ... dream ... gleam ... theme ... ice cream
Ice cream? Yes please!
Here you go Dave.
Thank you!"

These bears are always interrupting
They always–
"We look just your great-aunt Maeve!"
They always –
"We wear frilly aprons and–"
Hey!
"Sorry Dave."
These bears who will not behave

CHORUS
Repeat verse 1
Track Name: Fred the Dog
Have you heard about the brand new Japanese machines
That translate for your dog so you know just what he means
I strapped one to the collar of my faithful kelpie Fred
I asked him if he felt all right and this is what he said

CHORUS:
I’m hungry, I’m hungry, I’m hungry, rub my belly
What’s that noise, what’s that noise
Schmacko, Schmacko, walkies kick the ball
I’m hungry, I’m hungry, I’m hungry, rub my belly
What’s that noise, what’s that noise
Schmacko, walkies kick the ball

I took Fred for a walk coz we both had itchy feet
And soon enough we met a lady walking down the street
She said that Fred was lovely so Fred told her she was pretty
And when she screamed and ran away he sang his little ditty

CHORUS

Then Fred asked me questions he’d often thought about
Like why do humans change their skins when they are going out?
What happened to your tails, and how do you open gates?
And without a real good sniff how do you recognise your mates?
And by the way...

CHORUS

Fred became quite learned, he really got quite pesky
Always wanting me to read him Freud and Dostoevsky
And when I asked him what he thought of everything I’d read
Fred looked up and winked at me and wagged his tail and said

CHORUS

Fred went into politics the people loved him dearly
Soon there were new flaps in all the doors at Kirribilli
And when he made his maiden speech the people cried for more
They’d never heard such honesty from a PM before

CHORUS (very slow then very fast)
Track Name: Steppo
Old Steppo is an optimist, no matter what goes wrong
One night I lost my wallet and all my money was gone
I said "Oh Steppo, I've gone and lost my purse."
Steppo said "Don't worry have a cuppa, coz I've seen worse."

CHORUS
Things will be better in the morning
Things will be better in the light of day
We'll fix the problem in the morning
Everything will be okay, yes it will
Everything will be okay

One night I got a fever, with green and purple spots
The lady at emergency took one look and said:
"Eew, we don't see THAT a lot!"
I said "Oh Steppo, I just freaked out the nurse."
Steppo said: "Don't worry have a cuppa, coz I've seen worse."

CHORUS

One night I went to Egypt and accidentally woke a sleeping mummy
The mummy yelled through its bandages
"Ooeeeey gooeeey gummy!"
I said: "Oh Steppo, I got the mummy's curse!"
Steppo said: "Don't worry have a cuppa, coz I've seen worse."

CHORUS

One night some aliens landed, with kegs of blasting powder
They said: "You know the Big Bang? Well, this one will be louder!"
I said: "Oh Steppo, they'll destroy the universe!"
And Steppo said: "Don't worry have a cuppa, coz I've seen worse."

CHORUS
Things will be better in the morning
Things will be better in the light of day
We'll fix the problem in the morning
Everything will be okay – and it was!
Everything will be okay
Track Name: Don't Listen To This Song
Don't listen to this song
Save yourself the pain
It has annoying lyrics and a really silly name
It has a pesky melody that gets stuck in your head
And sometimes it doesn't rhyme –
Like this time, for example

CHORUS
Don't listen to this song
It goes on far too long
Don't listen to this song anymore
Don't listen to this song
It goes on far too looooooooong
Don't listen to this song anymore

Well I see that you're still here
P'raps you misunderstood
Don't listen to this song
It isn't very good
Run away and hide
Get out while you can
Coz in just a moment
There's this line with too many words in it and the words are all squashed up together
So it doesn't scan properly

CHORUS

And when you get to verse 3
It will start randomly
Talking about a budgie
It makes no sense to me
You'll try to work it out
But you'll come up with nil
This song don't have a meaning
And it never will

CHORUS

Thank goodness there is no verse 4 (hooray!)
Thank goodness there is no verse 4
Track Name: Family Outing
Young Jack Roberts is a pirate’s son
His dad takes him out for fresh air and fun on the weekend
They sail the high seas at leisure
And search for treasure
But Jack hates the boat and hates the sea
And all the pillaging of villagers makes him feel queasy
He dreams of ice cream he’s never had
But he wouldn’t like to disappoint his dad

CHORUS:
Yo ho yo ho
La da da da da da da da da da da

Little Sally Roberts is a pirate’s daughter
Who hates the waves, hates salt water
The family outing gives no pleasure to daddy’s treasure
Sally hates parrots Sally hates gold
All the pillaging of villagers makes her feel cold
She’d rather walk on a mountain top
But she’d never dream of disappointing her pop

CHORUS

Wild Man Roberts is a pirate bold
Or at least he was, before his heart and hook got old
Marauding makes him tired, he’d rather
Stroll in the city, but he says a good father must think of his kids
coz every kid dreams about the pirate life
and I’d hate to disappoint them
every kid dreams about the pirate life
and I’d hate to disappoint them

CHORUS

So the boat goes up
The boat goes down
Fish swim by
The world goes round ... (4 times)

Yo ho ho da da da da da da da da
Track Name: The Café Where The Lost Dogs Go
There's a café in my hometown
Where the lost dogs go
And there is a kind barista
Who knows they like to roam
She gives them water and a snack
Helps them find their way back
She calls their families to take them home

CHORUS
There's a café where the lost dogs go
Somehow they know
That someone there will care for them
Till they go home

Maybe it's coincidence or maybe something more
Perhaps they talk about it in the park
Or maybe when it's getting late
They bark across the garden gate
Spread the news as the sky grows dark

CHORUS

And mothers to their puppies say
If you ever lose your way
Find a place with nice smells
There's a lady there, you'll see
She'll give you water and a snack
Help you find your way back
She'll take you home to your family

CHORUS
Track Name: Pegasus With Pink Wings
Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like three unicorns, two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like four mermaids, three unicorns, two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like five talking trees, four mermaids, three unicorns, two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like six strange magic spells, five talking trees, four mermaids, three unicorns, two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like seven lucky wishing wells, six strange magic spells, five talking trees, four mermaids, three unicorns, two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like eight pretty fairies having lots of fun, seven lucky wishing wells, six strange magic spells, five talking trees, four mermaids, three unicorns, two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like nine silver castles shining in the sun, eight pretty fairies having lots of fun, seven lucky wishing wells, six strange magic spells, five talking trees, four mermaids, three unicorns, two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!

Tell me a story about all kinds of things
Like ten dragon kings, nine silver castles shining in the sun, eight pretty fairies having lots of fun, seven lucky wishing wells, six strange magic spells, five talking trees, four mermaids, three unicorns, two leprechauns and a Pegasus with pink wings!
