Well I sang you a song ’bout some birds that’d gone and got themselves stuck on ski’s – Let you know what went wrong when some turtles had gone and got themselves stuck in the trees – Well they still come and go but it’s a whole different show – They just go by slower – Go by slower – Well now the snow is all gone and they lounge on the lawn just a strollin’ along with the bees – And though the turtles and birds they don’t know all the words they’re still all tryin’ to sing – Well they still come and go but it’s a whole different show – They just go by slower – Go by slower – They’re still all tryin’ to sing – Same old snow – Same old trees – Same old turtles – Same old bees
Well folks, we’re at the half-way point with this “Song Of the Week” thing and man has it been fun! This one is from our recent little trip to Mammoth.
We’ve got the CD together and it should be up here in a couple more weeks.
Thank you again for all the comments… Give me MORE!!!
Cows In A Volcano
Cows roam in a volcano – Preparing for the show – We follow the chalk white road – Feel the hot wind blow – Sitting in a hot springs – Bubblin’ in the shallows – Can’t even hear the birds sing – Can only hear the cows go – Moo – Cows roam in the volcano – Preparing for the show – We follow the chalk white road – Ready here we go – Sitting in a hot springs – Bubblin’ in the shallows – Listenin’ to the cows sing – And posin’ for the photos – Moo
I wrote 2 others this week but decided that I wanted to make one up on the spot… so here it is.
Step right in – ‘Cause it’s about to begin – You won’t believe this ride – You’ll travel far and wide – Wear a frown or a grin – Through the thick or the thin – It’s what you decide – You won’t believe this ride – Time to go – Let’s start this show – Climb aboard – You’re moving toward – What you’ve adored – Things unexplored – Let’s go – You’ll find some things – Look like Kings and Queens – Then you’ll realize – They’re on their own ride – You’ll sing a song – And they may sing along – Or they might be quiet – Let’s go…
I’ve been wanting to do a “fort” song for awhile. When we were kids our cousin Chris Caputo built this enormous tunnel fort in his basement with boxes and duct tape. It was amazing.
Some credit also has to go to my Brazilian room-mate from my time at music school, Carlos Nascimento. There’s a little snippet of music from him in this that I’ve been carrying around for years. And finally, the original concept and title… thanks MJ!
The two puppets on Super Friend Vacation are our latest creations. Cooper and I made them with some orange juice containers, fur, and ping pong balls a couple of weeks ago. We’ll be featuring them more in upcoming posts… Stay Tuned! And, thank you again!
