Clap (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Andrew Barkan and Polly Hall

Everybody clap, clap, clap
Clap your hands, hands, hands
Clap your hands, hands, hands
Do a dance, dance, dance!
'Cause when it's really sunny
and you're feeling kind of funny,
Everybody, everybody
Clap your hands, hands, hands!

Everybody stomp, stomp, stomp
Stomp your feet, feet, feet
Stomp your feet, feet, feet
To the beat, beat, beat!
'Cause when you've got the wiggles
and you've also got the giggles,
Everybody, everybody
Stomp your feet, feet, feet!

Everybody brush, brush, brush
Brush your teeth, teeth, teeth
On the top, top, top
Underneath, 'neath, 'neath
In the mornin', in the evening'
Even when you go to Cleveland…
Everybody, everybody
Brush your teeth, teeth, teeth!

Everybody make, make, make
Make some noise, noise, noise
Jump around, 'round, 'round
With your toys, toys, toys
Because when you're feeling silly
and you think your name is Lily,
Everybody make some noise
When we say go - GO!

Everybody hug, hug, hug
Hug your mom, mom, mom
'Cause you love, love, love
Love your mom, mom, mom!
She's the greatest (so's your daddy)
even when you're kind of bratty,
Everybody, everbody
Hug your mom, mom, mom.

Everybody sing, sing, sing
Sing a song, song, song
Sing aloud, 'loud, 'loud
Sing along, 'long, 'long -
Because when it's really sunny
and you're feeling kind funny
Everybody sing a song
that goes like this -
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La, la, la!
Track Name: Bad Dog
Bad Dog (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Andrew Barkan & Polly Hall

Hello, have we met before?
I'm not sure, so let me introduce myself.
I am your two-eared, one-nosed, four-legged friend
and I love to wag my tail.

I may appear to really like you
and I really, really do!
But you've got something in your hand, my friend -
and it makes me go maroo!

I'm gonna get it, I'm gonna get it
I'm gonna get it as soon as you forget it!
I'll sit and shake then roll over -
just until you fork it over -
My eyes are all full of lies
'Cause I'm b-b-b-b-b-b-b-BAD DOG!

What's that you've got up there?
I see you, and it's just about dinnertime.
If it's cheese, bread, or maybe butter
Then there's a plan I must devise.

When you step back from the counter
to go see who is at the door,
I'll grab all I can and eat it!
And then I'll be back for some more…

I'm gonna get it, I'm gonna get it
I'm gonna get it as soon as you forget it!
You may have made your mind up -
You think I'm a sweet and a kind pup
(But there's more to me than all that stuff)
'Cause I'm b-b-b-b-b-b-b-BAD DOG!

When you take the blankets off the bed,
I know there's something going on.
It must be time to do the laundry,
and for me to do something wrong.
You seem to be so busy, folding all your new clean clothes!
But when you least expect it…
I'll unfold them with my nose!

I'm gonna get it, I'm gonna get it
I'm gonna get it as soon as you forget it!
I'm gonna jump on your laundry!
I'll put your clean clothes in a quandary!
Do you know Michel Gondry?
'Cause I'm b-b-b-b-b-b-b-BAD DOG!

I went and got it, I went and got it
I went and got it as soon as you forgot it -
I did my tricks and I tricked you,
You tried to win but I licked you!
We can be friends if you have food
(I don't even care if it's pre-chewed)
'Cause I'm b-b-b-b-b-b-b-BAD DOG!
Track Name: Swingin'
Swingin' (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Andrew Barkan & Polly Hall

I'm swingin' around
(swing, swing low)
I'm swingin' around
(swing, swing high)

I'll hang from monkey bars
See pretty flowers
Watch the kites in the sky

I'm swingin' around
(swing, swing low)
I'm swingin' around
(swing, swing high)

At the see-saw, see-saw
you and me saw
a wonderful day -
At the p-a-r-k
We'll be better than okay,
Come on, let's go!
Track Name: Let's Go!
Let's Go! (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Andrew Barkan & Polly Hall

Awwww...
Let's go to the park!
Let's go to the park!
Let's go before dark!
Let's go to…

Let's go, it's a beautiful day!
Look at the window, whaddya say?
Put on your sneakers, it's time to play -
Let's go to…

Awwww...
Let's go to the park!
Let's go to the park!
Let's go before dark!
Let's go to… the park!

The zoo is the place to be,
There's lions and tigers and monkeys to see.
Lemur, goose, hippopota-moose!!!
Let's go to...

Awwww...
Let's go to the zoo!
Let's go to the zoo!
Let's go - you come too!
Let's go to… the zoo!

The beach is as cool as can be -
There's water, sand, you and me.
The sun is shining on the deep blue sea -
Let's go to…

Awwww...
Let's go to the beach!
Let's go to the beach!
Let's beat the heat and eat a peach!
Let's go to… the zoo!

Sometimes we run out of things
Like milk and yogurt and ball bearings.
The spot that's got these things and more -
Let's go to…

Awwww...
Let's go to the store!
Let's go to the store!
Let's make a list and get out the door!
Let's go to… the store!

We had the craziest day
I'm pooped - that's all I can say.
Find a nice place for me to lay -
Let's go to…

Let's go to sleep...
Let's go to sleep...
Let's count lots of sheep...
Let's go to… zzzzzzzz.
Track Name: When You're a Dog
When You're a Dog (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Andrew Barkan and Polly Hall

Winner of the 2012 Joe Raposo Children's Music Award from The ASCAP Foundation

What do you do when you're a dog?
When every day is super fun?
Will you go to the beach?
Will you bark up a tree?
What do you do when you're a dog?

What do you do when you're a dog?
Soak up a sunny afternoon?
Sidewalk sniffing, some fetching
and frisbee catching -
I'm a dog - you're a dog - I'm a dog!

And you know what I like most in the world
Is someone who'll take me outside -
We'll walk around and we'll see what we see…
Bet you I'll find me a squirrel up a tree!

Because…

That's what you do when you're a dog
I can't wait to meet you at the door
There's to worry about, only to hurry about
It's time to play so what do you say?
Let's be dogs, let's be dogs, let's be dogs!
Track Name: Friendship
Friendship (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Cole Porter

If you're ever in a jam, here I am
If you're ever in a mess, S.O.S
If you ever feel so happy you land in jail
I'm your bail

It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blend ship
When other friendships have been forgot
Ours will still be hot
A-lottle-dottle-dottle-dig-dig-dig

And if you're ever down a well, ring my bell
And if you're ever up a tree just phone to me
A-yes-sir-ee
If you ever loose your teeth and you're out to dine, borrow mine

It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blend ship
When other friendships have been forgate
Gate?
Ours will still be great
A-lottle-dottle-dottle-chuck-chuck-chuck

If they ever black your eyes, put me wise
If they ever cook your goose, turn me loose
And if they ever put a bullet through your brain
I'll complain

It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blend ship
When other friendships have been forgit
Ours will still be it
A-lottle-dottle-dottle-hep-hep-hep

If you ever loose your mind, I'll be kind
And if you ever loose your shirt, I'll be hurt
If you're ever in a mill and get sawed in half
I won't laugh

It's friendship, friendship, just a perfect blend ship
When other friendships are up the crick
Ours will still be slick

A-lottle-dottle-dottle-woof-woof-woof, hep-hep-hep
A-chuck-chuck-chuck, a-dig-dig-dig
Good evening friends
Track Name: Weepadoo
Weepadoo (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Andrew Barkan & Polly Hall

Doo weepadoo padoo padoo
Weepadoo padoo padoo
Weepadoo padoo padoo, wepadoo-doo!
Doo weepadoo padoo padoo
Weepadoo padoo padoo
Weepadoo padoo padoo doo doo!

I'll pack my bags and I'll go outside
I'll wait for you and we'll go for a ride
Where we'll go, I don't know
But there's one thing I know -
We'll go where we go! And well...

Doo. We do
Doo weepadoo padoo padoo
The things
Weepadoo padoo padoo
We do together -
Weepadoo padoo padoo, wepadoo-doo!
You
Doo weepadoo padoo padoo
And me,
Weepadoo padoo padoo
Do weepadoo doo doo!
Weepadoo padoo padoo doo doo!

I know a special place
There's a dock on a lake
Where we can talk and take our time
to swing our feet and watch the sky
And while we do what we do
We do weepadoo! Come on and doo

Doo. We do
Doo weepadoo padoo padoo
The things
Weepadoo padoo padoo
We do together -
Weepadoo padoo padoo, wepadoo-doo!
You
Doo weepadoo padoo padoo
And me,
Weepadoo padoo padoo
Do weepadoo doo doo!
Weepadoo padoo padoo doo doo!

When all the leaves are fallen'
We'll eat turkey and pie
with all of our cousins
We'll be thankful for the afternoon
When we don't know what to do
We'll do weepadoo!

Doo weepadoo padoo padoo
Weepadoo padoo padoo
Weepadoo padoo padoo, wepadoo-doo!
Doo weepadoo padoo padoo
Weepadoo padoo padoo
Weepadoo padoo padoo doo doo!

So, can you weepadoo on an airplane?
Can we weepadoo in the car?
Can we weepado in the grocery store?

What exactly is weepadoo-ing?
It's what weepadoing!

Can you weepadoo like a musical robot
Can you weepadoo like you're at the opera?
Okay, everybody weepadoo to yourself!
Track Name: Waiting
Waiting (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Andrew Barkan & Polly Hall

I’m waiting for the clouds to go home
I’m waiting for the sun to shine
The tip-toe of the rain
Upon the window-paine, it’s almost time
I wait to put my socks and shoes on
I’m waiting very patiently
The tick-tock of the clock, I’m waiting for a walk outside…

And then I wait at the corner, I wait for the light to change
When I am waiting for something, I like to play a game
When I am waiting for mommy, or waiting for a friend
I play a game while I’m waiting, while I wait I count to ten.
I count 1,2,3, 4, 56789 10
I count 12345678910
Yes I 12345678910

I’m counting all the coins in my pocket
I’m counting all the leaves and trees
I’m counting all the stars and funny looking cars as they go by
It might be fun while I’m waiting
I’ll count everything I see
Sometimes it’s hard while I’m waiting
But that’s just fine with me

Cause I’ll count 12345678910
I’ll count 12345678910
We’ll count 12345678910
You count 12345678910

Track Name: Friend Like You (The Spaghetti Song)
Friend Like You - The Spaghetti Song (Andrew & Polly)
Written by Andrew Barkan and Polly Hall

Sometimes I like to be all alone.
I don't wanna talk on the phone -
just want to be by myself.

I want to laugh and read and climb a tree - just lil' ol' me -
Maybe have a day dream, or sing a song.

But it's fun, fun to play games...
And it's fun to play pretend...
And there's nothing better than sharing an ice cream sundae…
And for that, you need a friend. That's why -

It's so nice to have a friend like you!
'Cause when I'm feeling so very blue,
I know I can call you up and you'll say -
"Put on a smile, and have a good day!"

It's so nice to have a friend like you!
'Cause when I'm feeling so very blue,
I know I can call you up and you'll say -
"Put on a smile, and have a good day!"

And I will share my spaghetti, I'll share it with you
And we can take a walk to somewhere new
And we can jump up and down, we'll jump all around
'Cause it's nice to have a friend like you.

We can take a trip to outer space!
We can have a really short, fast race!
And if we're tired, we'll take a nap!

We can paint and play and sing all day until it's dinner time -
Yeah, we'll have a great time - even if we have a fight!
('Cause I'll say I'm sorry, and I'll say I'm sorry too)

'Cause it's fun, fun to play games...
And it's fun to play pretend...
And there's nothing better than sharing an ice cream sundae…
Andrew for that, you need a friend. That's why -

It's so nice to have a friend like you!
'Cause when I'm feeling so very blue,
I know I can call you up and you'll say -
"Put on a smile, and have a good day!"

It's so nice to have a friend like you!
'Cause when I'm feeling so very blue,
I know I can call you up and you'll say -
"Put on a smile, and have a good day!"

And I will share my spaghetti, I'll share it with you
And we can take a walk to somewhere new
And we can jump up and down, we'll jump all around
'Cause it's nice to have a friend like you.
