Track Name: Elijah & Sarayah Shaw - Spring Is An Amazing Thing
Bah bah bah bah bah...

I woke up this morning and I rubbed my eyes
I looked out the window to my surprise
The sun was shining brightly in the sky

Well the birds were sining a song for me
And the blossoms in the cherry tree
Were blooming for the whole world to see

So I jumped out of bed with nothing to loose
I'm shaking off these winter blues
Feeling like the world is evergreen

Gonna go outside
Gonna look around
Gonna let this sunshine come on down
Everything is beautiful and free


Spring! Spring is an amazing thing!
With the birds and the bees and the flowers
You go outside and you play all day
And you don't come in for hours

Bah bah bah bah bah...

Gonna ride my bike in the neighborhood
Gonna see my friends
I'm feeling good
Come on out
You know it's time to play

We can set up a stand and sell lemonade
Won't you take my hand
We've got it made
Everything is beautiful today



And there ain't no good reason
To miss out on this season of love
Track Name: Hey! Yeah! Yay! - First Edition
It may have been my best or only friend
A first edition of exquisite composition
Please allow me just to sit right down and read
Of vaudeville families, they're the bees knees

Read to yourself or read aloud
Read all alone or in a crowd
Read in the rain or in the snow
Read on a break or on the go

Read, read, read a book and see
You might find out just who you want to be
Read, read, read a book to me
Way up high in a house up in a tree
(Kings and Queens and Superhero things)
(One plus one plus one it equals three)

Use your blueish-brownish eyes
Find a book, get lost inside
Alice fell into a hole
Your adventure to be told
Crack the spine and make it mine
Pop a squat for story-time
Like Peter Pan to Captain Hook
The best man wins in every book

Those children raised with fractions
And the chemical reactions
So refractive and attractive and intelligently active
Say what? (Right there!)
Oh that? (Yeah, that!)
It's nothing, just a scratch
Cause I got the itch to read a book
And scratched so hard, it never took
Track Name: Bobby Bare Jr. & Isabella Bare - Daddy, What If?
Daddy, what if the sun stopped shining?
What would happen then?

If the sun stopped shining, you'd be so surprised
You'd stare at the heavens with wide open eyes,
And the wind would carry your light to the skies
And the sun would start shining again.

But, Daddy, what if the wind stopped blowing?
What would happen then?

If the wind stopped blowing, then the land would be dry,
And your boat wouldn't sail and, your kite wouldn't fly,
And the grass would see your trouble and she'd tell the wind,
And the wind would start blowing again.

But, Daddy, what if the grass stopped growing?
What would happen then?

Well, if the grass stopped growing you'd probably cry,
And the ground would be watered by the tears from your eyes,
And like your love for me, that grass would grow so high.
Yes, the grass would start growing again.

But, Daddy, what if I stopped loving you?
What would happen then?

If you stopped loving me, then the grass would stop growing,
The sun would stop shining and the wind would stop blowing.
So you see, if you wanna keep this old world a'going,
You'd better start loving me again, again...
You better start loving me again.

You better start loving me again.
You better start loving me again.

Track Name: Coco Motion - Stars In the Sky
The stars in the sky
They shine just for you
They do anything
You ask them to do
They shine so bright
All through the night
For you are their favorite

And though it is dark
They're shining for you
