Sunny Day 03:06
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 Copyright © Songs Of Kaos 2009

Aunty Violet 01:39
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!

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?

Moving On 04:48
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 Copyright © Suzy Davies 2008

Spiderman 02:31
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?
