Family Fun! Lyrics 

1. Little Canadian Animal

(From "Everyday Superheroes", 2017)

I had a little porcupine, she was very spiny

Took her to the barber, but she was very whiny

I had a little skunk, he was very smelly

Took him to the doctor 

and he poked him in the belly!

 

I had a little chipmunk, she was very chatty

Took her to a therapist, because she drove me batty

I had a little salmon, he was very slimy

Took him to the cleaners

cause he was greasy grimy!

 

I had a little loon, she was very loud

Took her to a hockey game, where noises were allowed

I had a little beaver, his teeth were very long

Took him to the dentist, and he whistled a song

He went doo doo do-do, do-do-do

I'm a little Canadian animal

And I wanna sing a rock 'n' roll song

He went doo doo do-do, do-do-do

I'm a little Canadian animal

And I wanna sing a rock 'n' roll song

 

I had a little raccoon, his eyes were very black

Took him to the eye doctor and now he won't come back

I had a little rabbit, she was very fast

Took her to the race track and she had a blast!

 

I had a little goose, he was very honky

Took him to a drive-in and he honked at a donkey

I had a little eagle, her claws were very strong

Took her to the Gym, and she whistled a song!

 

She went doo doo do-do, do-do-do

I'm a little Canadian animal

And I wanna sing a rock 'n' roll song

She went doo doo do-do, do-do-do

I'm a little Canadian animal

And I wanna sing a rock 'n' roll song

 

They went doo doo do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do

doo doo do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do… doooo

doo doo do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do.

That's what they said

doo doo do-do, do-do-do, do-do-do do-do-do-do!

 

They went doo doo do-do, do-do-do

I'm a little Canadian animal

And I wanna sing a rock 'n' roll song

They went doo doo do-do, do-do-do

I'm a little Canadian animal

And I wanna sing a rock 'n' roll song

2. Every First Time

I see you there sitting in your high chair

You're trying to talk, now you're learning to walk

 

You're running around in your diaper

And you're acting real hyper

Jumping on the couch is not allowed

But you still make me proud

 

I'll be here for story time and to tuck you in

(for the 5th time tonight)

 

And I'll be here, with one little tear

For every new thing, You do my dear

The first word you say, School on your first day

You'll do just fine, Every first time

 

Your first birthday cake

The first drawing you make

Your first loose tooth

The first time you lie but realize

you've got to tell truth

 

Your first bike ride, the times you'll cry and cry

When I'll help you with your homework that you'll try and try

Your first haircut, first diving board

First trouble at school, first goal you score

 

I'll be here when you're a teenager 

(and I don't seem that cool to you anymore)

 

But  I'll be here, with one little tear

For every new thing, You do my dear

The first word you say, School on your first day

You'll do just fine, Every first time

 

Your first job, the first time you drive a car

The first wish you make upon a star

And all of a sudden your graduation

And before my eyes your talking re-location

 

I'll be here for money advice but I won't pay your student loan. (Well, we'll talk about it)

 

Your first love, And maybe you'll get married someday and have kids? (oh boy) And maybe you'll sing them this song... 

You'll sing... 

 

And I'll be here, with one little tear

For every new thing, You do my dear

The first word you say, School on your first day

You'll do just fine, Every first time

 

And I'll be here, with one little tear

For every new thing, You do each year

The first word you say, School on your first day

You'll do just fine, Every first time

3. Everyday Superheroes

(From "Everyday Superheroes", 2017)

His helmet is red, fights fires till they're dead

Her shirt is blue, drives a police car too

His boots are green, runs a garbage machine

Her coat is white, makes sure your health is alright

 

He's a superhero

An everyday superhero

She's a superhero

An everyday superhero

 

His hat is yellow, a construction working fellow

Her pants are black, and she sells you a snack

His tie is pink, works at the store I think

Her shoes are brown, and she lives in your town

 

He's a superhero

An everyday superhero

She's a superhero

An everyday superhero

 

You don't have to be rich or pretend you're a bat

Real superheroes are nothing like that

Don't need a bite from radioactive spider

Don't need a cape, spaceship or hand glider

Don't have to come from planet Krypton

All you have to do is know right from wrong

Help each other and care for others

And you can be a superhero too!

You can be a superhero too!

You can be a superhero too!

You can be a superhero too!

 

You're a superhero

An everyday superhero!

You're a superhero

An everyday superhero!

You're a superhero

An everyday superhero!

 

And you can be a superhero too!

You can be a superhero too!

​You can be a superhero too!

​You can be a superhero too!

​You can be a superhero too!

4. Fat Cat 

(From "Songs for Kids Age 1 to 101", 2014)

Hey cat, why are you so fat?

You just lie around all day

Hey cat, you’re really kind of cute

But you should go outside today

 

You just eat cat food, poop in the litter box

Sleep in the laundry hamper

Curl up on the blankets, snooze in the sofa

You should get off your kitty butt and Scamper!

 

Hey cat, why are you so fat?

You just lie around all day

Hey cat, you’re really kind of cute

But you should go outside today

 

I pet you on your head and you purr

I brush you on your back and you meow

Your fur is so soft and fluffy

But why do you look so big and puffy?

Hey cat, fat cat, fat cat, fat cat

Hey fat kitty cat

Stop scratching at that!

Get down and scat!

Why don’t you go chase a rat?

 

Hey cat, why are you so fat?

You just lie around all day

Hey cat, you’re really kind of cute

But you should go outside today

 

Meow meow meow meow...

 

Hey cat, why are you so fat?

You just lie around all day

Hey cat, you’re really kind of cute

But you should go outside today

Hey cat, why are you so fat?
You just lie around all day

Well, hey cat, here’s a kitty treat

‘Cause I love you anyway

6. Us

 

You and me makes us

So where will we go?

'Cause this day we have right now

Will be gone tomorrow

So we'll explore, and play

On this sunny summer day

Blowing bubbles, jumping in puddles

Pajama time, don't forget snuggles

I don't want you to be afraid of anything

Love will surround us and take care of everything

yeah

 

Ooooh…

Ooooh… 

 

I'm blessed

You're blessed

We'll appreciate each day

And always do our best

So we'll learn, and play

On this cold dark winter day

Cheeks aglow, jumping in snow                          

Hot cocoa, I want you to know… that

 

I don't want you to be afraid of anything

Love will surround us and take care of everything

yeah

 

Ooooh…

Yeah yeah yeah…

7. Hotdogs and Cookies  

(From "Songs for Kids Age 1 to 101", 2014)

I like my hotdogs hot (with ketchup!)

I like my hotdogs hot (and mustard!)

‘Cause if they were cold 

they would be cold dogs

And nobody likes those 

except for my dog, Spot

 

I like my cookies cooked (well mostly)

I like my cookies cooked (Sometimes I eat the dough)

‘Cause if they were raw they would be 

un-cookies and that’s why you cook them like in the cook book

 

I like my ice cream iced (chocolate!) 

I like my ice cream creamed (in a cone!)

‘Cause if it wasn’t iced and if it wasn’t creamed then I’d rather eat a bowl of chicken rice

 

I like my oranges orange (and juicy!) I like my oranges orange (and yummy!)

‘Cause if they were blue then I don’t know what I’d do If we called a blue fruit an orange? Weird.

 

All of these things I like to eat 

And I’m glad they’re the way they are

They’re delicious and nutritious

That’s why I’m playing this song on the guitar

I like my french fries fried (more ketchup!)And I like my french fries French (pourquoi?)

‘Cause if they were not, they would be English and that doesn’t really make any sense.

 

I like my squash squashed (with turkey)

I like my squash squished squashed 

(at thanksgiving!)

‘Cause if it wasn’t squashed it would be chunky so why would you call it squash, Josh?

 

I like my mushrooms mushed...

Oh wait a second, no

I don’t think mushrooms were meant to be mushed. What do you think? 

What else? What about popcorn? 

Do you like popcorn?

 

I like my pop corn popped (with butter!)

I like my pop corn popped (at the movies!)

‘Cause if it wasn’t popped it would be kernels and when you tried to chew it would be like eating rocks

 

All of these things I like to eat 

And I’m glad they’re the way they are

They’re delicious and nutritious

That’s why I’m playing this song on the guitar

All of these things I like to eat 

And I’m glad they’re the way they are

I hope you all agree, Now please excuse me

I’m headed for the cookie jar
