8. IMAGINATION BLUES

Chorus
I've got the imagination blues,
I've got the imagination blues.
You've got an imagination, too!
You gotta use it when you play.
Pretending the day away,
I've got the imagination blues.

Let's pretend to be a fish.
Let's pretend to be a fish.
Let's pretend to be something different today,
Use your imagination when you play...

Chorus

Let's pretend to be a bunny rabbit...

Chorus

Let's pretend to be a dinosaur...

Way up north in the ice and snow
There is a place I love to go.
To watch the penguins waddle and play.
Waddlin' and Wigglin' all day, OH...

Chorus
Waddle, waddle, wiggle, wiggle,
Waddle, waddle, WAIT!
Waddle, waddle, wiggle, wiggle,
Waddle, waddle, WAIT!

Oh, when the penguins have a party,
There's nothing quite the same.
The way they waddle and wiggle about,
Oh, you can hear them say...OH!

Chorus

Waddlin' and wigglin' like only penguins do.
Won't you come and play with them,
They'll waddle and wiggle with you...OH!

Chorus

10. SNOWY DAY

One little snowflake falling to the ground...
Here comes another one without a sound...
More and more snowflakes following down...
Faster, faster, faster till we're covered in snow!
It's a snowstorm, a snowstorm,
Oh, how the wind does blow!
A snowstorm, a snowstorm,
Snow, snow, snow, snow, snow!

I can catch a snowball,
Round and cold and white.
I can catch a snowball,
And throw it with all of my might!

Went out to play in the winter air.
What do you know? It's snowin out there!
Got covered in snow from hat to boot,
Gotta shake it off from head to foot!
Shake that snow off my hands.
Gotta shake that snow off my hands.
Shake that snow off my hands.
Shake, shake off that snow with me!

11. MONSTER IN MY CLOSET

There's a monster in my closet and one underneath my bed.
They're friendly, but I wish that they would both live someplace else instead.
I can't help thinking that it would be awfully great
To live in a room where the monsters don't stay up so late...

No more hide-and-seek, I'm tired, can't you see?
I like to play Monopoly, but now it's time to go to sleep!
Building forts is fun, but the clock is striking half past one,
I'm very, very tired, so please go to sleep!

But the monster in my closet slammed the closet door and then,
The other monster stomped his way underneath my bed.
My mom must have heard it for in the doorway there she stood!
She said...

"No more hide-and-seek, I'm tired, can't you see?
I know you like to play Monopoly, but now it's time to go to sleep!
Building forts is fun, but the clock is striking hald past one,
And you have school tomorrow so please go to sleep!"

But the monsters didn't listen to a word my mother said.
The noise that they were making was sure to bring her out of bed.
What else could I say, but, "All right, I'll come and play a game."
So if I fall asleep in school today then don't blame me!

'Cause there's a monster in my closet and one underneath my bed.
They're friendly, but I wish that they would both live someplace else instead.
I can't help thinking that it would be awfully great
To live in a room where the monsters don't stay up so late.

12. THANK YOU, THANK YOU

Thank you, thank you, everyone.
Thank you, friends, for all the fun.
Thank you for our music together,
But now we must say good-bye

12. WE'RE FRIENDS

When I go to school, there is someone I like to see
And when we play together, anyone can see…

We're friends, we're friends even though we're very different
We can still be friends, 'cause I am special, and you are too

I sit in my wheelchair, and you like to run around
But when we play together, anyone can see…

We are different people with different things that we can do
But what really matters is I like spending time with you
I use my hands to draw and play; you use your hands to talk to me
But when we play together, anyone can see…
