Earworm

Chorus:   

It’s an earworm. It’s not a wiggly worm

It’s not a squirmy worm. It’s just another term

For a song stuck in your head

Uh-oh, uh-oh    Uh-oh, uh-oh             Uh-oh, uh-oh

 

I was listening to the radio

when I heard a song I did not know

But it sounded so familiar right away

It had one of those super catchy tunes

and I knew that pretty soon

I’d be singing that song night and day

 

An earworm can be your favorite song,

but even that is oh so wrong

Cause too much of a good thing,

well, you know what they say

Or maybe it’s the worst song you’ve ever heard,

words so bad that it’s just absurd

But songs like this they just won’t go away

 

Chorus

 

Everywhere you go it follows you around,

when you open your mouth out comes that sound

You’re driving everyone crazy,

pretty soon you won’t have any friends

You can try to get it out of your head

by listening to something else instead

But you better watch out or it will start all over again

 

Chorus

There's all kinds of singing, Oh don’t you know

There’s loud and there’s soft

There’s high and there’s low

Some people sing with a rasp in their voic

Some voices are clear as a bell

But you know that it really don’t matter to m

I think all kinds of singing are swell

 

 

Sing sing aling          (Sing sing aling

Sing sing along         (Sing sing along)

Sunsphere

(By Molly Ledford)

Download: Lyrics or Lyrics with Chords

 

I'm going to the Eifle Tower of Knoxville

Going to the Sunphere

Elevator inside, I'll take a ride

Up above the town town town

 

Going to the Space Needle of Knoxville

going to the Sunsphere

And when you behold the shiny and gold

Can you see me looking down down down

 

In 1982, the world came to visit you

Now decades later this party favor, decorates the view

 

I'm going to the crystal palace of knoxville

Going to the Sunsphere

It's a funny thing about human beings

we like to build up from the ground ground ground

 

Looking into the past, see how we thought about the future

I'm seeing a feeling 

I wonder if it's still around round round

 

In 1982, the world came to visit you

Now decades later this party favor, decorates the view

 

Energy turns the world - that's what they said

Energy turns the world - that was the line

Planets circle round the sun

And the countries all came to Knoxville

 

In 1982, the Sunsphere was brand new

And I was 14-years old, living right down the road

When the world came here, I remember it so clear

Now we've still got the sun

The Sunsphere

The Sunsphere,                 the Sunsphere

                 

ABC (The Writing Song)

(By Sean McCollough)

CHORUS:

A B, ABC, ABCDEFG

H I J K LMNOP

QRS, TUV, WXYZ

A B, ABC, ABCDEFG

                 

Somebody long ago made up the alphabet     

So we could write down all the things in our head           

Switch the letters all around, find yourself the perfect sound

To make the words to speak your mind leave your troubles all behind

 

CHORUS

 

Write a story, write a song, write a poem, you can’t go wrong

Write a verse in perfect rhyme, but let that verse be free sometimes

Write a novel thick and sturdy, paint a sign that’s not too wordy

Try your hand at a haiku, just seventeen syllables and you

 

CHORUS

 

Her Name Was Lady

(By Sean McCollough)

Download: Lyrics or Lyrics with Chords

 

Her name was lady, she was a Nubian

She had long, floppy ears, hair hangin' from her chin

She was a sweetheart, she wouldn’t hurt a flea

And she always seemed to like just hangin’ out with me

Oh lady, she was a lady, a real lady

She was a goat. She was a nanny goat

 

His name was Pablo, he was a Romeo

And everywhere Lady went he was sure to go

He was stinky, but Lady didn’t seem to mind

Cause he was good lookin’ and gentle and kind

Oh Pablo, he was good with the ladies, oh Pablo

He was a goat. He was a billy goat

 

         Chorus:

         Goats have personalities

         Multiple mentalities 

         They’re kind and mean and in between

         Really they’re a lot like you and me

 

Her name was Jackie, she had big long horns

She was mean as a snake from the day she was born

You had to watch her, you couldn’t turn your back

Or she’d sneak up behind you and           whack

Oh Jackie, she was a bully, that Jackie

She was a goat, she was a bully goat

 

Chorus

 

Her name was lady, she was a Nubian

She had long, floppy ears, hair hangin from her chin

She was a sweetheart, she wouldn’t hurt a flea

And she always seemed to like just hangin’ out with me

 

Don't Let 'Em Get Yer Goat

(By Sean McCollough)

Chorus:

Donʼt let ʻem get yer goat. Donʼt let ʻem bring you down

Donʼt let ʻem under your skin. Donʼt let ʻem make you frown

Cause it doesnʼt really matter, what other people think

As long as you like you and the things you do

Donʼt even let ʻem make you blink

 

I heard Johnny say to Jimmy that Sally said to Sue

That Tammy said to Tommy that she doesn't like you

Well it may be false, or it may be true

But whatever it may be, let me tell you what to do

 

Chorus

 

I saw Freddie whisper something to little Beth McGrath

Then they both looked at you, and they started to laugh

It made you feel kinda small. It made you wanna disappear

But I got something to tell you that you really ought to hear

 

Chorus

 

Well I heard about the bully. He was pushinʼ you around

He was beinʼ kinda mean, bringing everybody down

I guess you better tell a grown-up before he takes it too far

And I hope you will remember, we love you just for who you are

 

Chorus

 

 

Fuzzy Brown Vine (AKA Poison Ivy)

(By Georgi Schmitt)

Download: Lyrics or Lyrics with Chords

 

Chorus:

Poison Ivy, poison Ivy

The deadliest three leaves that you’ll ever find

And a fuzzy, fuzzy, fuzzy, fuzzy, fuzzy brown vine

 

Take a good look around my place

I see daffodils and buttercups and queen Ann’s lace

But what I don’t see, it takes me off guard

Is poison ivy all over the yard

 

Chorus

 

There's poison ivy down by my toes

Take a look and there it is under my nose

I turn and I run, I look back and I see

The poison ivy chasing after me

 

Chorus

 

So treat those plants with great respect

Or you'll itch from your tippy toes right up to your neck

Those little red bumps will make you itch and scratch

So keep out of the poison ivy patch

 

Chorus

 

Rag Doll

(By Greg Horne)

Download: Lyrics or Lyrics with Chords

 

I am a rag doll, my name is Annie

My eyes are buttons, my hair is yarn

I’ve got more stitches than a famer’s britches

And a calico dress to keep you warm

        

Chorus:

I am not fragile, I’m just a rag doll

And what I am used to suit you to a tee

I’m not a new one of lace and china

I’m just a rag doll, don’t you worry about me

 

I have been waiting here in the corner

Under the laundry, behind the door

I have been hoping that you will see me

And pick me up in your arms once more

 

Chorus

 

Carsick

Chorus:

I get carsick                        I don’t like it

And I swear this is real

This funny way I feel

I start achin’                        I ain’t fakin’

And if you don’t believe my story              

I’m afraid we’ll all be sorry

 

When we go to the mountains

We like to take ourselves a hike

I love the rocks, the trees, the clear blue streams

But there’s one thing I don’t like

Oh the roads they are so curvy

And even though you will be cautious

When it starts to gettin’ swervy, well I start to feelin’ nauseous

 

Chorus

 

When we go on vacation

We have to drive a long long ways                   

Sometimes a few hours

Can feel like a few days

I have to entertain myself

Well you’d think that would be easy

But if I read a book, just one look    

And I start to feeling queasy.

 

Chorus

 

Green Means Go

(By Sean McCollough - original chant by Phil Pollard)

Download: Lyrics (There's only one chord and it's E9.)

 

Green means go, red means stop

I'm gonna get sick, so I think you better stop

Yield, but don't necessarily stop

 

Green, green, green, green, red means stop

 

My friend Phil, he was struck with inspiration

One day while riding in the car, on a family vacation

He started feeling kind of sick, he started looking kinda green

He wasn't sure exactly what might happen

If you know just what I mean.

But Phil, he was the kind that didn't like to say you can't

So he used his brain to distract his body

And he wrote this little chant.

 

Green means go, red means stop

I'm gonna get sick, so I think you better stop

Yield, but don't necessarily stop

 

Green, green, green, green, red means stop

 

Now Phil he was a drummer, he liked rhythmic syncopation

It's when there's more than one beat and a mutual relation

One might play here, and one might play there

Put 'em both together, you got a syncopated pair

Some might leave space, and some might fill it all in

Put 'em all together you got polyrhythm

 

 

 

Now Phil said to himself,

Hey, I could do that with these words

So he got and friends to help him out

and this is what they heard

 

All three lines at the same time:

Green means go, red means stop

I'm gonna get sick, so I think you better stop

Yield, but don't necessarily stop

 

Green, green, green, red means stop

 

It's kind of like a game, it takes more than one to play

So everybody pick a line and we'll be on our way

When we sing 'em all together, we ain't got nothin' to lose

It's a syncopated, polyrhythmic carsick blues

 

Green means go, red means stop

I'm gonna get sick, so I think you better stop

Yield, but don't necessarily stop

 

 

Let's Give A Party

(By Martin, Bogan and Armstrong)

Let's give a party. Give it right now 

You bake the cookies. I'll milk the cow

Let's give a party. Give it on me

We’re gonna make it the best you see     

Oh me, oh my, oh you, zoo, zoo, zoo

I can't dance. Scared to take a chance

I can't dance. I got ants in my pants

 

Let's go fishin'. Down by the hole

You bring the line. I'll bring the pole

Let's go out, out to the park

Singing and dancing’, way after dark

Za zoo, za zoo, za zoo, za zoo zaz

I can't dance, scared to take a chance

I can't dance, got ants in my pants

 

(REPEAT FIRST VERSE)

 

 

Kidstuff Theme Song

(By Sean McCollough)

Download: Lyrics or Lyrics with Chords

 

Chorus:

It’s Kidstuff, no matter what your age is

Kidstuff, it’s really quite contagious

Kidstuff, you just can’t go wrong

It’s Kidstuff, you can listen on the radio

Kidstuff, it’s your very own music show

Come on, sing along

 

Music, music makes life better

Whether you’re 5 or 95 years old

Cause music goes with all kinds of weather

When the music’s hot, it’ll keep you warm, even when it’s cold

                                            

It’s the sound when the fiddle and the banjo play

Or when the slide trombone has something to say

The electric guitar, it can cry and moan

 

Oh the cello, the piccolo and the xylophone

Those African rhythms make you jump and shout

That rockin’ and rollin’ is what it’s all about     

And just in case you haven’t figured it out

Let me tell you what I’m talking about

 

Chorus

Gonna open my eyes                Open my ears

Even though I'm small
