about

Songs Of Kaos are totally child-centred, with witty lyrics and wickedly catchy tunes. They bridge the gap between Old MacDonald and Lady Gaga. Ideal for playing at home, at school or even in the car.

You can buy and download Songs Of Kaos digital sheet music from our website www.thekaos.organisation.com

Songs Of Kaos are even more fun with Sign Language - take a look at our videos and learn some signs for yourself

‘Welcome to some of arguably the most annoyingly catchy songs ever recorded… more fun than you can shake a stick at’
Rowland Rivron

‘The upbeat tunes and cheeky lyrics perfectly capture the way children think, rather than the way adults think they think’
John Lawrence

Track Name: Sunny Day
Sunny Day

Sing hey hey hey – it’s a sunny day
We’re not gonna sing a sad song, no way, it’s a sunny day
We’re gonna look on the bright side instead
‘cos we got out on the right side of bed
Sing hey hey hey – it’s a sunny day

We won’t sing about homework, that’s a bore,
and there’s more to life than chores
Cleaning out the rabbit hutch is much too much,
and forget about scrubbing floors
We won’t sing about Grandma’s kisses, she never misses,
they dribble down your cheek
There’s nothing worse than the Dinner Ladies’ curse,
no pudding for a week

Sing hey hey hey – it’s a sunny day
We’re not gonna sing a sad song, no way, it’s a sunny day
We’re gonna look on the bright side instead
‘cos we got out on the right side of bed
Sing hey hey hey – it’s a sunny day

We won’t sing about spelling tests and other pests,
like end-of-term reports,
Don’t mention detention – it’s a bad invention, worse than soggy shorts
We won’t sing about cheesy feet that pong or a plan that goes all wrong
We won’t sing about deadly poison or the lack of ozone –
‘cos this is a happy song

Sing hey hey hey – it’s a sunny day
We’re not gonna sing a sad song, no way, it’s a sunny day
We’re gonna look on the bright side instead
‘cos we got out on the right side of bed
Sing hey hey hey – it’s a sunny day

Track Name: Aunty Violet
Aunty Violet

Aunty Violet knits all day
She knits and knits and knits away
She knits in the morning and she knits at night
But the things she knits are an awful sight

She knits on the toilet, she doesn’t think it spoils it
She even knits in church while saying prayers (Ah-ah-ah aah)
Up the Eiffel Tower, says it gives her power
She knits while sliding down the banisters (Whee!)

Aunty Violet knits all day
She knits and knits and knits away
She knits in the morning and she knits at night
But the things she knits are an awful sight

She knits wetsuits, she knits ski-boots,
Pyjamas, nighties, dungarees and flares
She knits curtains, she knits tablecloths,
She even knits leg-warmers for the chairs

Aunty Violet knits all day
She knits and knits and knits away
She knits in the morning and she knits at night
But the things she knits are an awful sight

Oh oh oh, Aunty Violet
Oh oh oh, Aunty Violet
Oh oh oh, Aunty Violet

She’s not just a mitt-knitter you know!

Groovy Granny

She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - she’s really really cool
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - she likes playing pool
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - on her motorbike
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - and that’s the kind we like
That’s the kind we like
That’s the kind we like

She’s got a big dog with a pierced ear
She goes to the pub and she gives it a beer
She always wears her shades at night
‘Cos she can’t be bothered to turn out the light
She wears a leather jacket and Doctor Marten boots
She goes to bingo in a silver suit
She’s got a ring in her nose and her belly-button too,
A rainbow rinse and a snake tattoo

She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - she’s really really cool
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - she likes playing pool
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - on her motorbike
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - and that’s the kind we like
That’s the kind we like
That’s the kind we like

She likes to travel to exotic places
So every holiday she packs her cases
She’s always texting on her mobile phone
She’s got so many friends she’s never alone

She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - she’s really really cool
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - she likes playing pool
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - on her motorbike
She’s a groo-oo-oo-vy granny - and that’s the kind we like
That’s the kind we like
That’s the kind we like

Crazy Hairdresser

When you’re feeling nervous, there’s a churning in your belly
She’ll style your hair with ice cream to match your knees of jelly
If you’re going for a re-style with your heart upon your sleeve
It’s rainbows and red roses, so much you won’t believe
She can spike it if you like it, she can dye it, make you try it,
She can shave it, you can’t save it, ‘cos we all know she’s a –

Hairdresser Hairdresser

When you’re feeling blue your hair looks that way too
There’s a raincloud hanging over your head,
You’re wishing you’d just stayed in bed
But when you feel excited she’ll shower you with stars
A style so high and mighty it could reach the planet Mars
She can spike it if you like it, she can dye it, make you try it,
She can shave it, you can’t save it, ‘cos we all know she’s a –

Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy hairdresser
Watch out she’s gonna get ya

Hairdresser Hairdresser

There was a lonely boy named Joe who liked to hide away
Our super snappy snipper took all his fears away
She gave him a hairstyle ten feet tall, and fifty metres wide
His confidence grew with his hair and now he’s full of pride
She can spike it if you like it, she can dye it, make you try it,
She can shave it, you can’t save it, ‘cos we all know she’s a –

Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy hairdresser
Watch out she’s gonna get ya, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy hairdresser

She’s a crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy hairdresser
She’s never lazy she’s a crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy hairdresser
Watch out she’s gonna get ya, crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy hairdresser
She’ll check your mood for you, she knows just what to do,
She’ll make you look the way you feel - ow!

Track Name: Respect
Respect

It's a beautiful world we're living in
But nothing's guaranteed
Whether you're young or old or rich or poor
There's something we all need
Every colour, shape and creed

Respect - raise your expectations, accept no limitations,
Every generation – respect!
Respect - your family, your community,
Keep your integrity – respect!
Sometimes you've got to give more than you get
But we'll make a better future yet – respect!

If you're stuck in a tricky situation,
There's pressure all around
It might be hard to do the right thing,
But you've got to stand your ground
Step out of the crowd

Respect - raise your expectations, accept no limitations,
Every generation – respect!
Respect - your family, your community,
Keep your integrity – respect!
Sometimes you've got to give more than you get
But we'll make a better future yet – respect!

Hay reaper, clean sweeper, time keeper, late sleeper,
Take a leap of faith now – respect!

Cake maker, code breaker, risk taker, head shaker,
Step up to the plate now – respect!

High rider, low rider, insider, outsider,
Don't be good, be great now – respect!

Not just a little bit, not just a little bit, not just a little bit,
Give it more, more, more -

Respect - raise your expectations, accept no limitations,
Every generation – respect!
Respect - your family, your community,
Keep your integrity – respect!
Respect - raise your expectations, accept no limitations,
Every generation – respect!
Respect - your family, your community,
Keep your integrity – respect!
It's what the world needs now

Track Name: What's It Worth, Planet Earth?
What’s it Worth, Planet Earth?

Reduce, re-use, recycle X 4

What’s it worth, Planet Earth?
Tell me what does it mean to you?
What’s it worth, Planet Earth?
Tell me what are you prepared to do?

It only takes a second to turn off the tap
While you’re brushing your pearly whites
It only takes a tick and a flick of the wrist to switch off unnecessary lights
This beautiful blue green paradise should be the pride of the universe
So whoever you are, whatever you do, let’s put the planet first

What’s it worth, Planet Earth?
Tell me what does it mean to you?
What’s it worth, Planet Earth?
Tell me what are you prepared to do?

If you’re not going far, why get in the car? Ride the bus and enjoy the view
Or why not take a hike? Maybe get on your bike?
You’ll do your health a favour too
This beautiful blue green paradise should be the pride of the universe
So whoever you are, whatever you do, let’s put the planet first

Reduce – Look for less packaging on the products that you choose
Re-use – Don’t just chuck away something someone else could us
Recycle – Could your rubbish be reborn as something new?
Reduce, re-use, recycle

What’s it worth, Planet Earth?
Tell me what does it mean to you?
What’s it worth, Planet Earth?
Tell me what are you prepared to do?
What’s it worth, Planet Earth?
Tell me what does it mean to you?
What’s it worth, Planet Earth?
Tell me what are you prepared to do?

Track Name: Moving On
Moving On

So we're coming to the end of a chapter
Soon we'll be exploring pastures new
We've had good times and bad times, glad times and sad times
Rainy days and skies of blue
We've grown up, settled down, fitted in, fallen out,
Learned some lessons too
And no matter where life takes us we're sure to make mistakes, but
There'll always be a way of getting through
And we shouldn't be afraid of change
'Cos nothing ever stays the same for long
If we never meet again my friend I hope you reach your rainbow's end
Hold your head up high, stay strong –
'Cos now it's time for moving on

I wish you clear roads, bold adventures,
Lasting friendships close and true
As we leave the past behind us let's hope tomorrow finds us
Right where we belong
'Cause now it's time for moving on

We're all heading for a happy ever after
Though at times the going gets rough
Be confident, you'll make it - if you don't feel it, fake it,
No-one ever won by giving up
And we shouldn't be afraid of change
'Cos nothing ever stays the same for long
If we never meet again my friend I hope you reach your rainbow's end
Hold your head up high, stay strong –
'Cos now it's time for moving on

I wish you clear roads, bold adventures,
Lasting friendships close and true
As we leave the past behind us let's hope tomorrow finds us
Right where we belong
And if this should be our farewell song – goodbye, good luck, so long
Hold your head up high, stay strong,
'Cause now it's time (now it's time)
For moving on (moving on)
For moving on (moving on)
We're moving on

Track Name: Spiderman
Spiderman

Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size, catches thieves just like flies
Look out! Here comes the Spiderman

Is he strong? Listen bud, he's got radioactive blood
Can he swing from a thread? Take a look overhead
Hey, there - there goes the Spiderman

In the chill of night, at the scene of a crime
Like a streak of light he arrives just in ti-i-ime

Spiderman, Spiderman, friendly neighbourhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame he's ignored - action is his reward
To him, life is a great big bang up, whenever there's a hang up
You'll find the Spiderman

Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size, catches thieves just like flies
Look out! Here comes the Spiderman

Is he strong? Listen bud, he's got radioactive blood
Can he swing from a thread? Take a look overhead
Hey, there - there goes the Spiderman

In the chill of night, at the scene of a crime
Like a streak of light he arrives just in ti-i-ime

Spiderman, Spiderman, friendly neighbourhood Spiderman
Wealth and fame he's ignored - action is his reward
To him, life is a great big bang up, whenever there's a hang up
You'll find the Spiderman
