Track Name: Chuggada Choo
Chorus
Steam engines, diesel trains,
City trolleys and even subways
Ooh, I love those trains… I think about them every day
If I’m stuck in the house, on a day when it rains
I’ll get out my wooden set
I’m gonna build some trains

Trestle Bridge
Choo choo, chuggada choo
Choo choo, chuggada choo
Well choo chuggada choo
Chuggada chuggada choo choo choo
Choo chuggada choo
Choo choo chuggada choo
Choo choo choo, chuggada choo
Chugga, chugga chuggada, choo choo choo

I’ll dump out the rails
Gonna build some long trails
Start in my room,
This train is gonna zoom
Well I’m building on the floor, and we’ll head right out the door
Heading down the stairs, the rails go down in pairs
My dog just sits and stares, I guess it’s only me that cares

These tracks they start to crawl
Right on down the hall
Into the living room
I’m in my engineer costume
My train it won’t derail, ’cause I pay attention to detail
The tracks they are a switchin’
No time for flinchin’
New cars are hitchin’ as we head into the kitchen

Chorus

Trestle Bridge
Track Name: Ella's Umbrella
Chorus
The Raindrops fall to the ground
1, 2, 3 falling all around
I’m going to take a step outside
I’ll open my umbrella wide
I’ll walk in puddles on the ground
I’ll spin my umbrella around
I’m in my boots, my name is Ella
And I just love my umbrella

The rain has to fall
But I don’t mind it at all
It lands and then starts to flow
And everything around will grow

Chorus

The forecast is calling for rain
It must be that time again
The rain, it falls from a cloud
And if there’s thunder it is loud

Chorus

The rain it falls and flows downhill
The water into lakes they fill
Then rushing rivers to the ocean
And it starts again with evaporation

Chorus
Track Name: Just Imagine
Chorus
Use your imagination
With a little determination
There is no limitation
When you use your imagination
If you imagine it
If you work at it
If you never quit
Well, just imagine

There was a man, imagined he could fly
He watched the birds and said, “Oh, why can’t I?”
Worked hard with his brother, built a plane that could fly
Well he imagined it, and he took it to the sky

Chorus

When I was a little kid, I liked to sing for everyone
I loved an audience, it was always lots of fun
I dreamed when I’d grow up, sing for people with my guitar
Well I imagined it, now I’m a pebble star!

Chorus

What do you think about, when you day dream
Some cool ideas I bet, but impossible they may seem
But what you imagined, you may realize
If you work hard at it, you just might be surprised

Chorus
Track Name: Mama Samba
Chorus
My mama loves to dance, she’s going to do the mama samba
My mama loves to dance, she’s going to do the mama samba
My mama loves to dance, she’s going to do the mama samba
I’m going to dance with my mom, and do the mama samba

Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance in the family room
Oh my mama loves to dance
Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance in the living room
Oh my mama loves to dance

Chorus

Mama loves to dance, she’s going to move her body to the beat
Oh my mama loves to dance
Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance right on down the street
Oh my mama loves to dance

Chorus

Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance at the bus stop
Oh my mama loves to dance
Mama loves to dance, she’s going to dance until she drop
Oh my mama loves to dance

Chorus
Track Name: Chloe the Utterly Cool Cow
Chorus
She’s Chloe the utterly cool cow
Chloe the utterly cool cow
She just wants to help now
Because she’s Chloe the utterly cool cow
She can help you work it out
She’s so cool gonna make you shout

If you have a problem with bullies
She’s the one that you really need
She’ll make friends of enemies
She’s so cool ’cause she does good deeds
There is no need to fight
She can help to make things right

Chorus

If you’re ever feeling down
She’ll make you smile like a clown
It’ll turn your frown upside-down
The best brown cow in this town
Chloe is a real good friend
On her you can depend

Chorus

You ask, what makes Chloe super cool
Well here is why she really rules
She’s friends with everyone in school
Like Kaidyn, Cole and Abdul
This is what makes her so great
’Cause she really loves not to hate

Chorus
Track Name: Stampede
In the morning on the farm, the rooster goes cock-a-doodle-doo
Gotta get out of bed, you sleepy head, there’s lots of things to do
The cows are all at the trough, they’re waiting for their feed
But every now and then those cows, get a little crazy,
We’re gonna have a…

Chorus
Stampede, yeehaw
Stampede, yeehaw
Stampede, yeehaw
Stampede, yeehaw

Saddle up my horse, I’m going to take him to stretch his legs
I'm going to visit the chickens, going to pick up some fresh eggs
Outside the birdcoop, the chickens are pecking at their seed
But every now and then those chickens, get a little crazy,
We’re gonna have a…

Chorus

One more stop we have to make, before we stop to eat
I’m going to visit the pigsty, going to walk in the mud with my feet
The pigs are trying to keep cool, a big old mud pit is all they need
But every now and then those pigs, get a little crazy,
We’re gonna have a…

Chorus x2
Track Name: Trikers
When I was only two
I got my first trike
It had flames on the side
And it was chromed up nice

Chorus A
People in the neighbourhood, they don’t know what to do
When I roll up, in temporary tattoos
They call me the triker, and I’m in preschool
I own the sidewalk, and I’m super cool, yeah!

Now there are my friends
I met in the park
They also ride trikes
But not after dark

Chorus B
People in the neighbourhood, they don’t know what to do
When we roll up, in temporary tattoos
They call us the trikers, and we’re all in preschool
We own the sidewalk, and we’re super cool, yeah!

When it’s nice outside
Put on our backpacks
We cruise around the block
Then we eat some fruit snacks

Chorus B
Track Name: Colour It
Chorus
I’m done my picture
Needs a colourful mixture
Get out my crayons
I’m going to colour it!
Repeat chorus

Well I’m drawing because it’s my favourite thing to do
I’m drawing a picture of me with you
But, it’s not done yet, it can be much more beautiful
It needs something more, to make it colourful

Chorus

Sometimes I like to draw fruit on a plate
It’s called a still life picture, I want to make it great
But it’s not done yet, it can look much more flavourful
It needs something more, to make it colourful

Chorus

I like Picasso, I think of him when I draw my house and my yard
My mom says my pictures, they look pretty avant-garde
But it’s not done yet, it can be much more wonderful
It needs something more, to make it colourful
Track Name: Daddy Daughter Day
Chorus
Spending time with my little girl
To me she means the whole wide world
Go on an adventure and we’ll play
Because today is Daddy Daughter Day

We can go down to the beach
Build a castle made of sand
On a log we can take a seat
When we walk you can hold my hand

Chorus

We might go to a show
Listen to the Backyard Band
We can sing and dance to and fro
And at the end we can clap our hands

Chorus

We can go and ride our bikes
Maybe head down to the park
Swing or slide, whatever you like
We’ll play all day, right until it’s dark

Bridge
Today is Daddy Daughter Day
Today is Daddy Daughter Day
Today is Daddy Daughter Day

Chorus
Track Name: Daddy's Lullaby
I lay my head down
As I listen to the sound
Of my daddy singing to me
That is how I go to sleep

He sits in his rocking chair
And he ruffles up my hair
Leans over and tucks me in
That is when the songs begin

He sings of wondrous tales
Of trains and dragon’s tails
Of birds that have flown
He’s done this ever since I was born

My daddy’s singing slow
And his voice is getting low
He’s getting tired you see
I bet he falls asleep before me

I lay my head down
As I listen to the sound
Of my daddy singing to me
That is how I go to sleep
