 WALKING
(Words: Martha Cheney / Music: Hap Palmer)
©Hap-Pal Music, Inc.

Chorus: Walking walking walking walking
Seems so easy now
But I remember when I was small
And I did not know how

I would take two steps and then fall down
And bump my bottom on the ground
My dad would say, "That's O.K."
"Try some more another day"

Repeat Chorus

I would take two steps and then two more
And fall down on the kitchen floor
But up I'd stand, dust my hands
And tell myself I know I can

Repeat Chorus

Daddy loves to squeeze me and bounce me on his knee
Then we get down on the floor and roll my ball
He reads to me a story almost every night
But playin' horse is what I like the best of all

Get down on your hands and knees
Daddy be a horsie, daddy be a horsie
Take me riding please

He picks me up and kisses me before he goes to work
But I like it most when he comes home and I can say

Repeat Chorus

And hold her close to me

Little baby I'll watch you grow
Little baby I love holding you
'Cause I know you love me too

My baby's diaper is all wet
He needs one nice and dry
So I will change his diaper now
And then he will not cry

My baby is all dirty 'cause
We went outside to play

And wash the dirt away

And hold him in my lap

(Words: Martha Cheney and Hap Palmer / Music: Hap Palmer)

(Many children in the 3-5 age group are fascinated with "scary" things.
Here is a pretend song about a witch who has lots of fun flying around,
and the children can join in and be witches too!)

Green hair shines in the golden moon
Wild witch sits on a magic broom
Up on back hops her black tom cat
And they go Flying, zoom --

Watch a witchie whiz way up high
Starts sparkle brightly as she flies
Racing in the cold night sky

If you'd like to fly to the golden moon
Jump right up on your magic broom
Up on back hops your black tom cat
And you go flying, zoom --

Watch a witchie whiz way up high
Starts sparkle brightly as you fly
Racing in the cold night sky

Watch a witchie whiz way up high
Starts sparkle brightly as you fly
Racing in the cold night sky
Cold night sky –

Ridin' buckin' broncos in a rodeo
Bouncin' up and down and a turnin' around
Jumpin' and a joltin' till you fall on the ground

Chorus: Wild and woolly
Ride and rope and run
Wild and woolly
Have some wild and woolly woolly fun!

Ridin' 'round and 'round swingin' your lassoo
Wave your hat to mama shoutin' woo yahoo!

You're a dancin' and singin' at the big hoedown

Sister plays the saxophone
Uncle plays the silver flute
Oh what lovely lilting tones

BIG THINGS COME FROM LITTLE THINGS YOU DO
(Words and music by Hap Palmer)
©Hap-Pal Music, Inc.

Step by step, bit by bit,
Piece by piece, dreams come true
Big things come from little things you do

Clear some space bring your blocks
Stack them up to build a house
Big things come from little things you do
One by one, each step you take
Makes your wish come true

Pour the mix, crack an egg
Stir in milk then bake a cake
Big things come from little things you do

Call your friends, hang balloons
Plan some birthday party games
Big things come from little things you do

One by one, each step you take
Makes your wish come true
(Makes your wish come true)

Dig the ground, plant some seeds
Spray the hose, a garden grows
Big things come from little things -
Big things come from little things -
Big things come from little things you do

GROWING
(Words and music by Hap Palmer)
©Hap-Pal Music, Inc.

Chorus:There are so many things that grow, grow, grow
So many things that grow, grow, grow
There are flowers and trees and chimpanzees
Mice and rats and little kitty cats
There are monkeys and parrots, peas and carrots
Boys and girls all over the world

Now let’s start with a tiny little seed
That slowly grows and becomes a tree
And the little twigs and branches become big limbs
With leaves that sway and rustle in the wind
With leaves that sway and rustle in the wind

Chorus:

There are so many things that grow, grow, grow
So many things that grow, grow, grow
There are flowers and trees and chimpanzees
Mice and rats and little kitty cats
There are monkeys and parrots, peas and carrots
And boys and girls all over the world

Now we all started out as a tiny little baby
And we grew a little bit and then we could crawl
And we grew a little more and then we could walk
And we grew a little more and then we could talk
And we grew a little more
And we could run like the wind.

Chorus:

There are so many things that grow, grow, grow
So many things that grow, grow, grow
There are flowers and trees and chimpanzees
Mice and rats and little kitty cats
There are monkeys and parrots, peas and carrots
And boys and girls all over the world

WHEN THINGS DON’T GO YOUR WAY
(Words and music by Hap Palmer)
©Hap-Pal Music, Inc.

You want a chocolate fudge bar
But your mommy tells you, "Wait."
You ask her how much longer
She says, "Finish up your plate."
As she speaks your brother sneaks
And without asking anyone
He eats the chocolate fudge bar
The very last one!
What do you do? What do you say?
When things don’t go your way

On the jungle gym mean Jimmy
Takes your favorite place on top
He teases you, "Na na na."
And he simply will not stop
lYou don’t know where to turn to
And you’re feeling all alone
You try to tell the teacher
She says, "Solve it on your own."
What do you do? What do you say?
When things don’t go your way

YOU CAN DO IT
(Words and music by Hap Palmer)
©Hap-Pal Music, Inc.

When your friends area up, skatin’ around
And you keep slippin’ and fallin’ down
Get back up! Don’t give up and quit
And in time you will find you can do it

When you swing and miss, remember that
Soon you’ll get another chance to bat
Watch that ball! Don’t give up and quit
And in time you will find you can do it

Keep on skatin’; give yourself time
Keep on swingin’ and you will find
You can do better than you did before
And nobody could ask for more

Y’got heart –
Y’got spunk –
Y’ got soul from head to toe
Y’got spark –
Y’got spirit –
You’re really great! Oh don’t you know
