If you’re lookin' real close, you can see the engineer He's a grey locomotive on the railway Passing farms with windmills and tractors pulling hay bales Boxcars are heavy with their cargo Apples, tangerines, walnuts, watermelon, almonds, avocados, grapes, apricots, cumquats, plums and peaches, nectarines, cantaloupe, honeydew, kiwi, lemons, peanuts, broccoli, cashews, strawberries, cranberry, dewberry, elderberry, gooseberry, blackberry, apple berry, huckleberry, mulberry, cucumber, chestnuts And occasionally passion fruit Cannonball is winding through the mountains Rolling over bridges and steaming through the tunnels Chuggin' up a steep grade and coastin' down the backside Cannonball is passin' towns and cities Courthouse, hospital, post office, gas station, library, supermarket, coffee shop, town hall, town square, local barber, drugstore, parking lot, high school, playground, neighborhood, Elks Lodge, cemetery, golf course, ball field, bus stop, fitness center, bowling house, movie house (whheeewww......!) The sun sets low behind the mountains Soon our journey ends as we're nearing the station End of the line, folks End of the line

Bear and Dog 03:38
We are bear and dog We are bear and dog We are the rulers of the earth We’ve come to help you save your little planet! We came down to your planet It looked so messed up We decided there’s a solution We’re gonna clean this planet UP! CHORUS It takes two furry animals To make this world a party With love, peace and freedom We’re gonna fly the rainbow’s edge CHORUS Bear rides a hurricane Dog is a genius With these super powers The possibilities are endless CHORUS

A baby earthworm asked his mom Why are we underground? The mommy said because our job Is moving earth around That’s what the earthworm’s for That’s what the earthworm’s for And if we do our job then when The seeds drop in the soil They’ll sleep inside the ground until The rain begins to fall That’s what the rain is for That’s what the rain is for The sun was passing overhead The ground began to warm And little seeds began to sprout On meadows, hills, and farms That’s what the sun is for That’s what the sun is for The moon came up behind the hill And out came twinkling stars The little worm was dazzled and He asked what stars are for His mommy said all creatures long For beauty and for light The stars are just for you to see On sweet warm summer nights That’s what the stars are for That’s what the stars are for That’s what the moon is for . . . That’s what the sun is for . . . That’s what the rain is for . . . That’s what the earthworm’s for

Walking Boy 03:18
He's a walking boy holding mama’s hand On a trip to the beach for some summer sand Digging up shells and searching for treasure Found a shiny round pebble and a great big feather He’s a walking boy A walking boy He’s a walking boy He’s a walking boy leading papa down the road Heading for the trees and listening for the toads They get on the trail and the shade feels good It’s summertime in the deep green woods He’s a walking boy He's a walking boy and loves to go places New sights and brand new faces He’ll walk for all of his days See the world and all its ways Blue skies and a desert rain Deep water and the endless plains He’s a walking boy

Little Willie Buffalo Little Willie Buffalo In the green green grass of Idaho I’m Little Willie Buffalo I’m a baby buffalo up on the plains I sleep under moon, I play in the rain Daddy was Bill so they call me Will I hope you’ll sing this song with me Boom shaka laka laka I walk in the hills with my buffalo mom We’re a buffalo herd two thousand strong The buffalo bulls keep the family safe From the wolf and the thunder and the windy days CHORUS I eat in the morning and I eat at night Chomping on grass is mighty nice Middle of the day I take a little nap And I dream of the faraway Cumberland Gap You see my great great great great great great great great grandfolks laid the trail That led the way for the Indians, the cowboy and the Interstate December brings the big white snow But it’s not too cold for a buffalo We’re gonna walk south for many a mile Gonna keep on moving in the winter time I’m getting bigger every day I’ll be two thousand pounds but I love to play Under big blue sky in the meadow by the stream At night I dream the buffalo dream I’ll dream of you If you’ll dream of me In the green green grass of Idaho We’ll roll around like the buffalo do Cause I’m a buffalo Don’tcha know

Good night, little space ship, good night It’s time for the sun to go round to the other side Close your eyes, little space ship, close your eyes Tomorrow you’ll tell us what’s up in the sky Mars Stars Mars Stars Sleep tight through the night, little light We’re here oh so near as you fly through the sky Good night, little space ship, good night Good night little space ship, good night Mars Stars Mars Stars
