Lyrics:

"We Can Make The World Go 'Round"  (3:00)

You and me...we've got something special deep inside our souls

We know how to love, know how to care for

People and places, no, nothing replaces love, it makes us whole

 

Oh when we share, oh when we share

And when we give all that we can give

We will bring happiness from town to town

Yes together...we can make the world go 'round

 

The sun shines through...surely it will happen if we open up our hearts

Everyday holds a brand new treasure

But the rubies and diamonds lie in the horizons of love and this is how it starts

 

Oh when we share, oh when we share

And when we give all that we can give

We will bring happiness from town to town

Yes together...we can make the world go 'round

 

Beauty surrounds us as far as we can see

Yes, you and I, we set the world in harmony

 

Oh when we share, oh when we share

And when we give all that we can give

We will bring happiness from town to town

Yes together...we can make the world go 'round

 

“Willie the Worm” (2:58)

“Hey, Willie- You think you could dance to this new beat?”

“Look at him go!”

“He’s dancing, he’s dancing!”

“Way to go, Willie!”

 “It’s a Cloudy Day” (1:32)

When the sun can't shine through and the sky is gray, not blue

It's a cloudy, it's a cloudy day

 

When you look into the sky and see cotton floating by

It's a cloudy, it's a cloudy day

 

Gray skies may turn to rain, my friend

But soon the sun will come out and play again

 

Then happy we will be, the sun and you and me

And we'll say so long Mr. Cloudy Day

 

"Living at the Zoo" (2:49)

So many animals, large and small

From every continent, one and all

Mammals, amphibians, birds and reptiles, too

You'll find them all living at the zoo

 

Sumatran tigers, gentle manatees

Eagles, crocodiles and chimpanzees

Rhinos from India, camels, bison, too

You'll find them all living at the zoo

 

There's so much we can learn

about this world where we belong

For in one special place lies the heart of nature's song

 

So let's go visit them one by one

Living in harmony under the sun

Don't need to travel far, all we've got to do

Is take a trip and find them at the zoo

Let's take a trip and find them at the zoo

 

“Buckle Up Those Seatbelts” (aka "The Safety Song") (3:36)

It's time to buckle up those seatbelts

It's time to know when to say no

It's up to us to practice safety

Everywhere we go

 

Always wear a bicycle helmet

Look both ways when you cross the street

Never talk to strangers though the person may seem nice that you meet

Stay low if there's a fire

Till you can get outside

And when  you're playing hide and seek, be careful where you hide

 

It's time to buckle up those seatbelts

It's time to know when to say no

It's up to us to practice safety

Everywhere we go

 

Be mindful in the kitchen

Be careful by a swimming pool

Stay away from outlets at home or even when  you're at school

If you're class goes on a fieldtrip

Stick close, don't ever stray

And when you're online, careful what you do and what you say

 

It's time to buckle up those seatbelts

It's time to know when to say no

It's up to us to practice safety

Everywhere we go

           

“Everybody, Let’s Recycle” (2:39)

Everybody, let's recycle

It's so easy to do

Come on people let's recycle

Let you're magic shine through

It only takes a moment, a fraction of your time

Just a little effort helps keep this world so fine

 

So now people let's recycle

Paper, glass, plastic, too

Reduse, reuse and recycle

We'll turn those gray skies a-blue

It only takes a moment, a fraction of your time

Reduse, reuse, recycle

Let's keep this world so fine

 

 “The Rainforest” (3:27)

Monkeys, toucans and butterflies

Frogs, snakes, jaguars with fearless eyes

Look all around

And hear the sounds of them all

 

The Rainforest, helping the world

The Rainforest, magic unfurls

The Rainforest, help it survive

Keep it alive

 

See the top layer and canopy

The forest floor and understory

So green and warm

Let that sweet rain keep raining on

    

The Rainforest, helping the world

The Rainforest, magic unfurls

The Rainforest, help it survive

Keep it alive

 

The Rainforest, helping the world

The Rainforest, magic unfurls

The Rainforest, help it survive

 

The Rainforest, the Rainforest

 

What we do today will affect tomorrow

It is up to us to save the world

The earth is changin'

Can't you feel it changin'

 

It's not too late

We can make a difference

Time to change

 

The Rainforest, helping the world

The Rainforest, magic unfurls

The Rainforest, help it survive

Keep it alive... yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

 

The Rainforest, the Rainforest

Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain

 

“Save the Manatee” (3:41)

Sweet Amanda Manatee

Gently giant of the sea

Twisting, turning throughout the bay

Flat tail and flippers, they steer the way

 

Plants and warmth, they keep her strong

Resting, grazing all day long

A shy and loving mammal is she

Gliding, soaring so wild and free

 

Save the manatee

Save the manatee

Together, you and me

Can save the manatee

 

Careless people from the shores

With their boats and fishing lures

Make it hard for manatees to thrive

Now's the time we help them to survise

           

Save the manatee

Save the manatee

Together, you and me

Can save the manatee

 

“Friendship" (2:36)

Friends singing together

Pledging our hearts to make the world better

Friendship, we're talking 'bout friendship

So lucky are we

 

We may have different faces

We’re different religions and different races

But there is something special we share

A beautiful connection is there

 

Yes, we’re friends singing together

Pledging our hearts to make the world better

Friendship, we’re talking ‘bout friendship

So lucky are we

 

Working together we could change tomorrow

Erasing poverty, pain and sorrow

We’ll make this earth a safe place to be

Yes, we can do it all you and me

 

Cause we’re friends singing together

Pledging our hearts to make the world better

Friendship, we’re talking ‘bout friendship

So lucky are we

 

Friends singing together

Pledging our hearts to make the world better

Friendship, we’re talking ‘bout friendship

So lucky are we

 

            Nothing like friendship

            Friends, good friends/singing together

            We’ve got each other

            Now, now and forever

            We’ll make the world better

            Friends

            My friends
