Track Name: Sun Ray
SUN RAY

SUN RAY SO STRONG AND BRIGHT
SPARKLING YELLOW AND WHITE
I WANT TO BE IN YOUR PATH OF LIGHT
SUN RAY STRONG AND BRIGHT

BLUEBIRD IN THE TREE
WON’T YOU SING YOUR SONG FOR ME
ABOUT WHERE YOU’VE BEEN, AND WHERE YOU’LL BE
BLUEBIRD IN THE TREE

HOOT OWL IN THE NIGHT
WHAT DO YOU SEE WITH YOUR BIG ROUND EYES?
WON’T YOU TELL ME WHO’S IN YOUR SIGHT?
WHOO? WHOO? WHOO?

MOONBEAM DIM AND WEAK
BRINGING YOUR SILVERY STREAK
MAKING SHADOWS IN THE LEAVES
MOONBEAM DIM AND WEAK

SUN RAY SO STRONG AND BRIGHT
SPARKLING YELLOW AND WHITE
I WANT TO BE IN YOUR PATH OF LIGHT
SUN RAY STRONG AND BRIGHT

Track Name: You Can't Take a Spiderweb Home
YOU CAN’T TAKE A SPIDER WEB HOME

VERSE ONE

THERE ARE THINGS IN THIS WONDERFUL WORLD OF OURS
THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO CLAIM
BUT SOME THINGS ARE MORE BEAUTIFUL
WHEN THEY REMAIN THE SAME

CHORUS
OH, YOU CAN’T TAKE A SPIDER WEB HOME WITH YOU
YOU CAN’T TAKE A SPIDER WEB HOME WITH YOU
THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT YOU CAN DO
BUT YOU CAN’T TAKE A SPIDER WEB HOME

VERSE TWO

YOU CAN HAUL A GREAT BIG PINECONE
YOU CAN CARRY SOME SPONGY MOSS
YOU CAN LUG A LUMPY LAVA ROCK
YOU CAN SAVE A PRETTY PIECE OF BARK

REPEAT CHORUS (WITH BUT ,YOU CAN’T TAKE…)

INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

VERSE THREE

A SPIDER WEB IS PRETTY; THAT IS TRUE
AND THE DEW SHINES BRIGHT WHEN THE SUN SHINES THROUGH
IN BUSHES AND GARDENS, CRANNIES AND NOOKS
IF YOU FIND A SPIDER WEB JUST STOP AND LOOK

REPEAT CHORUS

Track Name: Friendship
FRIENDSHIP


THERE ARE LOTS OF SHIPS IN THE OCEAN,
CRUISING ALONG IN THE SEA
THERE ARE TANKERS WITH OIL,
SHIPS WITH CARGO IN THEIR HOLDS,
WITH TOURISTS SIPPING ICE TEA

WELL THERE’S ONE KIND OF SHIP I DON’T WANT TO MISS
GONNA GET ON BOARD, GONNA TAKE A TRIP

IT’S GOING TO BE FANTASTIC
SOMETHING WE CAN SHARE
I REALLY HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE

IT’S F-R-I-E-N-D – FRIENDSHIP,
F-R-I-E-N-D – FRIENDSHIP, F-R-I-E-N-D – FRIENDSHIP,
THAT’S THE SHIP FOR YOU AND ME

SOME PEOPLE WANT TO GO IT ALONE,
ROWING THEIR ROWBOAT ALONG IN THE FOAM,
PADDLING A RUBBER RAFT IN THE SEA
WELL, THAT IS NOT FOR ME—

‘CAUSE I’M GONNA JUMP ON A GREAT BIG SHIP
WE’LL TRAVEL TOGETHER LIKE WE’RE JOINED AT THE HIP

IT’S GOING TO BE MARVELOUS
IT’S GOING TO BE SWELL
AND EVERYONE WILL GET TO KNOW YOU WELL

IT’S F-R-I-E-N-D – FRIENDSHIP,
F-R-I-E-N-D – FRIENDSHIP, F-R-I-E-N-D – FRIENDSHIP,
THAT’S THE SHIP FOR YOU AND ME
THAT’S THE SHIP FOR YOU AND ME

(Instrumental break)

THERE’S ONE KIND OF SHIP THAT’LL TAKE YOU FAR, NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE
IT’S F-R-I-E-N-D – FRIENDSHIP,
THAT’S THE SHIP FOR YOU AND ME

Track Name: Grow
GROW

Verse 1
I’M PUSHING UP . . . I’M GROWING STRAIGHT
. . . I’M COMING OUT . . . I JUST CAN’T WAIT

THERE’S GOING TO BE A ROW OF ME
IN FRILLY YELLOW AND HARDY GREEN

chorus
AND I CAN’T DO ANYTHING BUT GROW;
THAT’S ALL I DO, THAT’S ALL I KNOW
THE RAIN BEATS ME DOWN; THE WIND BLOWS ME ‘ROUND,
BUT I CAN’T DO ANYTHING BUT GROW

Verse 2
SOME PEOPLE SAY . . . I’M KIND OF DAFFY
. . . THAT’S JUST A PART OF WHO I AM
THERE’S GOING TO BE A LOT OF FRIENDS
WHO PICK ME OUT AND TAKE ME IN

to chorus

Verse 3
WHEN BIRDS ARE CHIRPING . . . AND LEAVES ARE NEW
. . . IN DRIZZLY WEATHER . . . I’M COMING THROUGH
THERE’S GOING TO BE A VASE WITH ME
ON SOMEONE’S TABLE; JUST WAIT AND SEE

to chorus

Track Name: Cold and Rainy
COLD AND RAINY

I SAW A GIANT RAIN CLOUD WAY UP HIGH
IT WAS COMING CLOSER, DARKENING THE SKY . . .

IT’S STARTING TO RAIN, IT’S STARTING TO RAIN
I LOVE TO FEEL THE SUN,
BUT IT’S STARTING TO RAIN

SOMETIMES WHEN WE SET OUT FOR A SUNNY STROLL,
WE GET HALFWAY ALONG OUR ROUTE
WHEN IT BEGINS TO POUR

IT’S STARTING TO RAIN, IT’S STARTING TO RAIN
I LOVE TO FEEL THE SUN,
BUT IT’S STARTING TO RAIN

IT’S COLD AND RAINY OUT THERE
IT’S COLD AND RAINY OUT THERE
IT’S COLD AND RAINY, COLD AND RAINY,
IT’S COLD AND RAINY OUT THERE.

WE’RE GOING TO GET DRENCHED
WE’RE GOING TO GET DRENCHED
WHEN IT IS RAINING CATS AND DOGS,
WE’RE GOING TO GET DRENCHED

WE’RE GOING TO SHIVER AND SHAKE
WE’RE GOING TO SHIVER AND SHAKE
WE’LL BE AS COLD AS THE JANUARY RAIN;
WE’RE GOING TO SHIVER AND SHAKE

WE HAD A BIG PARK PICNIC ON A WARM HOLIDAY
EVERYONE’D PUT OUT THEIR PICNIC FOODS
WHEN I HEARD SOMEBODY SAY

IT’S STARTING TO RAIN, IT’S STARTING TO RAIN
I LOVE TO FEEL THE SUN,
BUT IT’S STARTING TO RAIN

IT’S COLD AND RAINY OUT THERE
IT’S COLD AND RAINY OUT THERE
IT’S COLD AND RAINY, COLD AND RAINY, COLD
AND RAINY OUT THERE.

WE’RE GOING TO GET DRENCHED
WE’RE GOING TO GET DRENCHED
WHEN IT IS RAINING CATS AND DOGS,
WE’RE GOING TO GET DRENCHED

WE’RE GOING TO SHIVER AND SHAKE
WE’RE GOING TO SHIVER AND SHAKE
WE’LL BE AS COLD AS THE JANUARY RAIN;
WE’RE GOING TO SHIVER AND SHAKE

WE’LL BE AS COLD AS THE JANUARY RAIN;
IT’S COLD AND RAINY OUT THERE
