Story Time 00:59
It’s story time So gather near Of heroes and villains We soon will hear So my friends, Will you lend me your ears? For once upon a time. It’s story time So please come round Of birds, frogs and dragons We’ll soon hear sound So my friends, Will you hear what I’ve found? ‘Bout once upon a time

They made me throw a ball to find myself a wife But who knew I’d find a girl who’d change my life? I met a girl, so interesting and kind But now that girl, I simply cannot find Who will try on this shoe that I carry? The girl that it fits, I hope, she’ll be the girl I marry I said who will try on this shoe that I carry? The girl that it fits, she’ll be the girl I marry They made me thow a ball, to dance with all the girls But who knew I’d find someone, who’d totally rock my world? We danced and talked all night, until the clock did sound And then she disappeared, and she simply can’t be found Who will try on this shoe that I carry? The girl that it fits, I hope, she’ll be the girl I marry I said who will try on this shoe that I carry? The girl that it fits, she’ll be the girl I marry They made me throw a ball, to help me fall in love But who knew the girl I’d find would fly off like a dove? I thought we’d hit it off, I thought she liked me too But when that midnight bell did sound, all she left was her right shoe! Who will try on this shoe that I carry? The girl that it fits, I hope, she’ll be the girl I marry I said who will try on this shoe that I carry? The girl that it fits, she’ll be the girl I marry

It’s a drag being a dragon It’s frustrating breathing this fire It gets in the way when I’m trying to sing And I just want to join the church choir It’s a drag being a dragon It’s gruesome being this green I try my best to be so friendly But everyone thinks I am mean I don’t want to eat a princess for my tea I’d rather have crumpets and a nice piece of cheese I have such good manners, I always say please But everyone runs from me It’s so sad being a dragon I’m reluctant to use this big road I want to do yoga, pilates, tai chi Being loud, it just makes my throat sore It’s too bad being a dragon I’m not greedy ‘bout big piles of gold I want to paint pictures, oh I want to dance But they think that I’m mean, bad and cold I don’t want to fight with a knight on a steed I’d rather have a chat and work out what he needs I’m a reasonable dragon, but no one pays heed Everyone runs from me It’s a drag being a dragon Everyone runs from me!

Magic Beans 02:26
Oh no, my son’s done a foolish thing He took my prize cow, and sold her for nothing We needed money We needed food But all I’ve got is magic beans No I don’t believe in magic No I don’t believe in beans I needed some food in my belly But all I’ve got is ears full of Jack’s mad dreams Oh no, my son’s done a foolish deed He never listens, or does the things we need He went to market He went to make cash But all I’ve got is magic beans No I don’t believe in magic No I don’t believe in beans I needed some food in my belly But all I’ve got is ears full of Jack’s mad dreams Oh no, my son’s done a foolish act I miss dear Daisy, I wish he could get her back He never listens He only dreams But all I’ve got is magic beans No I don’t believe in magic No I don’t believe in beans I needed some food in my belly But all I’ve got is ears full of Jack’s mad dreams No I don’t believe in magic No I don’t believe in beans I needed some food in my belly But all I’ve got is ears full of Jack’s mad dreams

It’s fabulous being a frog I can sit here and think on my log If I’m feeling hungry, I’ll gobble a fly I’ll sit on a lily pad And watch clouds go by Yes it’s fabulous being a frog It’s ace being an amphibian I reckon we frogs have most fun If I’m feeling happy I’ll jump up and down If I want to cool off I’ll just swim to uptown Yes it’s ace being an amphibian It’s terrific to hang out with toads They’re so warty and wise, I learn loads If I’m feeling sleepy I’ll doze on my log I love being pondlife I love being a frog Yes it’s terrific to hang out with toads It’s fabulous being a frog I can sit here and think on my log If I’m feeling hungry, I’ll gobble a fly I’ll sit on a lily pad And watch clouds go by Yes it’s fabulous being a frog Yes it’s fabulous being a frog

Spider Song 02:15
I’ve got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 legs And if I wriggle and I jiggle I can spin extraordinary webs Do you wanna see a trick? I can hang upside down Yes I’m a spider and I’m boss of this town I’ve got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 legs Yes I’m an arachnid And some people want to get rid Of cute little critters like me I don’t know why! Cos I help get rid of flies And I’m bout as cool and cute as can be Cos I’ve got….1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 8 legs And if I wriggle and I jiggle I can spin extraordinary webs Do you wanna see a trick? I can jump for miles When people see me, they should start to mile Cos I’ve got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 8 legs Yes I’m a spider And some people want to hide a- ..way from creepy crawlies like me But it makes no sense! Hey if you’re on the fence Why not come on down and hang out with me? Cos I’ve got….1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 8 legs And if I wriggle and I jiggle I can spin extraordinary webs Do you wanna see a trick? I can tap dance all night But when people see me, they just take fright Cos I’ve got 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 8 legs

Lullaby 03:35
Shut your eyes, my darling child Rest your weary limbs just a while Save all your giggles, and save all your smiles We’ll need them in the morning Shut your eyes, my darling wee dear I promise I will stay near There’s no need to worry, there’s nothing to fear I’ll see you in the morning Snoring, Yawning Rest your head, my darling small child Snoring, yawning Close your eyes, my dear Shut your eyes, my darling child Rest your weary limbs just a while Save all your giggles, and save all your smiles We’ll need them in the morning Shut your eyes, my darling wee dear I promise I will stay near There’s no need to worry, there’s nothing to fear I’ll see you in the morning Snoring, Yawning Rest your head, my darling small child Snoring, yawning Close your eyes, my dear
