When I Grow Up

When I grow up
I will be tall enough to reach the branches
that I need to reach to climb the trees
you get to climb when you’re grown up.

And when I grow up
I will be smart enough to answer all
the questions that you need to know
the answers to before you’re grown up.

And when I grow up
I will eat sweets every day
on the way to work and I
will go to bed late every night!

And I will wake up
when the sun comes up and I
will watch cartoons until my eyes go square

(All)
and I won’t care ’cause I’ll be all grown up!

When I grow up!

When I grow up, when I grow up
(When I grow up)
I will be strong enough to carry all
the heavy things you have to haul
around with you when you’re a grown-up!

And when I grow up, when I grow up
(When I grow up)
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
that you have to fight beneath the bed
each night to be a grown-up!

And when I grow up
(When I grow up)
I will have treats every day.
And I’ll play with things that mum pretends
that mums don’t think are fun.

And I will wake up
when the sun comes up and I
will spend all day just lying in the sun
and I won’t burn ’cause I’ll be all grown-up!

When I grow up!

(Instrumental)

(Miss Honey)

When I grow up. I will be brave enough to fight the creatures that you have to fight beneath the bed each night to be a grown-up.
(When I grow up)

(Matilda)

Just because you find that life’s not fair, it
doesn’t mean that you just have to grin and bear it.
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
nothing will change!

(Miss Honey)

When I grow up

(Matilda)

Just because I find myself in this story,
It doesn’t mean that everything is written for me.
If I think the ending is fixed already,
I might as well be saying
I think that it’s OK!

And that’s not right!

Lemon Tree

Sing along video

I’m sitting here in the boring room
It’s just another rainy Sunday afternoon
I’m wasting my time
I got nothing to do
I’m hanging around
I’m waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder
I’m driving around in my car
I’m driving too fast, I’m driving too far
I’d like to change my point of view
I feel so lonely
I’m waiting for you
But nothing ever happens and I wonder
I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me ’bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
I’m turning my head up and down
I’m turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just another lemon-treeI’m sitting here
I miss the power
I’d like to go out taking a shower
But there’s a heavy cloud inside my head
I feel so tired
Put myself into bed
While nothing ever happens and I wonder

Isolation is not good for me
Isolation I don’t want to sit on the lemon-tree

I’m steppin’ around in the desert of joy
Baby anyhow I’ll get another toy
And everything will happen and you wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me ’bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see is just another lemon-tree
I’m turning my head up and down
I’m turning turning turning turning turning around
And all that I can see is just a yellow lemon-tree
And I wonder, wonder

I wonder how
I wonder why
Yesterday you told me ’bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see, and all that I can see, and all that I can see
Is just a yellow lemon-tree

Christmas Chimes Are Calling Santa

Christmas snow is falling
Carols fill the air
But it won’t be Christmas
‘Til Santa Claus is here

Christmas chimes are calling
Santa, Santa
Every heart recalling
Santa, Santa

Come on, ol’ Kris Kringle
Down the Milky Way
Christmas chimes are calling
Santa, we need you today

If you don’t believe in
Santa, Santa
Think that he’s deceiving
Santa, Santa

Think about a Christmas
With no Christmas cheer
Christmas chimes are calling
Santa and his eight reindeer

We love his laughter
His jing-a-ling-a-ling
Forever after
The bells will ring

Christmas chimes are calling
Santa, Santa
Every heart recalling
Santa, Santa

Come on, ol’ Kris Kringle
Down the Milky Way
Christmas chimes are calling
Santa, we need you today

They’re not so easy squeezy these days.

To spread his Christmas joy, he’s chosen to employ

Some changes to his lifestyle right away.

 

He’s up to thirty minutes on the treadmill.

He put those Christmas cookies away.

He’s gonna get in shape no matter what it takes.

The Christmas Eve tradition is at stake!

to optimize his heart’s aerobic rate.

He’s made a list of nice and naughty calories,

and checks them twice before he fills his plate.

 

He’s making major changes to the menu.

’Cause candy canes add too many pounds.

He’s really keeping tabs. And working on those abs.

He’ll be in shape before he comes to town!

Outdoors

(James Mraz)

Karaoke version

All day I’ve been inside
And I’ve got the feeling
I’m trapped between the walls
And underneath the ceiling
I feel a bit off track
And now I’m trying to get back

Back in the cool cool air
Where the sun in shining
Nothing’s gonna stop me
It’s all in the timing
It’s finally again my turn
It’s time to return

Cause I won’t stay inside
No more no more
I cannot wait to go outdoors
Mmmhmmhmmhmm

Well open up your door
And be like me
Open up your door
And then breathe free
Look at all the beauty you’ll feel
Love love love love

Listen to the music of the wind
And the birdies sing
We’re just one big family
And all of nature deserves to be
Loved loved loved loved loved

So I won’t stay inside
No more no more
It cannot wait
I’m sure
There’s no need to run and hide
Let’s go explore
It feels so great
Let’s go outdoors

do do do do do do do do
Everyone come on
Come on out here
Where the air is fresh and clear

So I won’t stay inside
No more no more
It cannot wait
Let’s go outdoors

Jason:
Well open up your door
And be like me
Open up your door
And then breathe free
Look at all the beauty
And you’ll find the earth
And the sky is yours
So please don’t
There’s no need
There’s no need to hide inside
Let’s go explore
This’ll this’ll
It feels so great
Let’s go outdoors
