FAMILY PHOTO ALBUM (2018)
ALL MY FRIENDS ARE HERE
Some are big, some are small
But it don't matter if you're tiny or you're tall
Some are young, some are old
But they all get together reach out and grab a hold

My friends are here
All my friends are here

My friends they dance sometimes
They know how to go with the groove
My friends can play it cool
And hardly even move
Some rough on the outside
But got a heart so true
They may a throw a little shade from time to time
But hey, you need 'em to

Giving more than they get
Give em all a big old hug
THAT LAUGH
I love that laugh you know the sound of it makes me smile
When you crack up I do too

Uncle Albert can laugh, like he's gasping for air
He might just fall out of his chair
Mrs. C down the street, like a bird she can tweet
And twitter and cackle away

I love that laugh you know the sound of it makes me smile
When you crack up I do too

My baby cousin Jackie, she's got giggles of her own
To tickle any funny bone
At school there's Mr. Buchanan, he can burst like a cannon
Like a fireworks display

I love that laugh you know the sound of it makes me smile
When you crack up I do too

My brother sounds like a donkey,
Grandpa's a jolly old man
Mama squeals when she's happy
And Pa starts clapping his hands

DIGGING A HOLE
Me and my friend, me and Leo, were digging a hole,
In the sandbox, just a week ago
With a rake, two shovels and a hoe
One foot, two foot, three feet down below

We dug and dug, we dug and dug, the hole did grow

Me and Leo, you bet we could go, we kept digging down
We couldn't even reach up to the ground
Started seeing cool stuff all around
Stones and bones, we even found a crown

We dug and dug, we dug and dug, the hole did grow

Tunneled down into a cavern
There was a crazy party there
With mastadons and dinosaurs
And giant insects everywhere
A woolly mammoth was the DJ
All the creatures danced around
We stayed a little while
Then went further underground

Me and Leo, kept going below, and whaddaya know,
Found a fiery river all aglow
Caught a raft ride on the magma flow
This way, that way, whoa, whoa, whoa...

Whoa, that was crazy
Do you think recess is over?
I'm getting kind of hungry,
Wait, do you see that?
Leo, I don't think we're in Seattle anymore
Does anyone have a phone?
TOGETHER
Well I could push this boat about a foot
before I break my back
But if you help, I bet that we can push it out to sea
Then you and me will be sailing free, together
No wave too big, I guarantee,
together, together always

Now there's no fix that we can't break out of
no pickle we can't dill with
No sticky situation
we can't stick together through
Cause you and me are like super-glue,
together, together, together
Ain't nothing that we can't do,
together, together always

Now it ain't always easy peasy lemon squeezy
stop and smell the roses each and every single day
But when it's tough we got enough,
we roll our shirtsleeves right on up,
get down to work and always find a way

Cause no spot's too tight, with you, that's right
No jam that we can't sweet talk through
It might not be pretty, but bit by bit we
Can find something to do

Cause you and me are like matching shoes
Together, together, together
A bit worn out but so comfy too
Together, together, together

CHEWY TO YOUR HAN
On the first day at my new school
Friends? Not a single one!
So scary to feel so new
Doesn't feel like much fun
And my mind races all over
Tempted to just turn my tail and run

Then the teacher calls your name and
You run to the front row
Grab me by the arm and pull me
And show me where to go
And as I sit and look around
I don't feel so scared anymore

And I know I gotta thank you
For lookin out for me
And that's why I'll protect you
For all eternity
I'm saying I will be the Chewy to Your Han

I'll be the Chewy to your Han
When the troopers all appear
When some other friends may run
You know that I'll be here
I'll be the Chewy to your Han
On birthdays and on Sithmas I'll be near

When we're on an expedition
My skills can't be ignored
Take a break from our big mission
Put a spice rub on a porg
I'll shampoo and then condition
When the battle with the bad guys has been scored

When we're in hyperspace with the stars flying by
I know sometimes you might feel kinda scared
Just grab a stuffy or two pull your blanket up tight
Cause you know that I will always be prepared
Got the prequels on the TV
And R2 brought some popcorn to your chair

I'm the Chewy to your Han
Making sure we'll never crash
But whenever things go wrong
Like we were trapped in trash
I'll be the Chewy to you Han
And I'll help you get Jabba back that cash

At the trigger of my crossbow
You know I'll never miss
Take the Falcon to a car show
Save some Jedi from some siths
And I know that you know
That the Ewoks never had nothin' on this

And when you were all frozen
Into the carbonite
The best friend I had chosen
Completely out of sight
But I knew that I'd see you again
With all my might

And I know I'm gonna miss you
Whenever you're not there
But I just have to thank you
For tosslin' my hair
I'm saying I will always be

I'll be the Chewy to your Han
STICKIN' RIGHT BY YOU
It ain't all good, it ain't all bad
But you know this life is ready to be had
Thick or thin, there's one thing that's true
I'm stickin' right by you

Some people say stay on the sunny side
Without you I'd be scrambled
With you I'd be fried
Some people say stay on the sunny side
So let it all shine

It ain't all good, it ain't all bad
But you know this life is ready to be had
Thick or thin, there's one thing that's true
I'm stickin' right by you

When you look at that glass and it seems half empty
Well I'll fill it up as full as can be
I'm sticking by you
Come on stick here by me
And we'll fill up life full as can be

It ain't all good, it ain't all bad
But you know this life is ready to be had
Thick or thin, there's one thing that's true
I'm stickin' right by you

Stick by you
And all the crazy times you know we gonna see them through
Stick by me
And we'll be the first to turn the worst into the best that it can be

It ain't all good, it ain't all bad
But you know this life is ready to be had
Thick or thin, there's one thing that's true
I'm stickin' right by you

NOT FOR YOU
My best friend's birthday
I had to get the right gift
Whoa whoa
Off to the toy store
Oh what did I see
The perfect toy for me
No No
Mama said, We did not go in here for you

Rainy Day and we went
To the museum
Whoa whoa
My favorite place to go
Cause before you leave you stop
In the museum gift shop
No No
Mama said, We are not getting that for you

Saturday means groceries
Get a bunch of food
Whoa whoa
I get to push the cart
But everything I find
Gets left behind
No No
Mama says, We are not buying that for you

Sunday's with grandma
Snuggles, books and games
Whoa whoa
We're having so much fun
And everywhere we go
I never hear a no
No, No
Never hear we are not getting that for you
SING YOUR SONG
Sing your song
And you will find someone to sing with you
You've got that melody
Go make some some harmony
You will find
Someone to sing with you

Sing your song
And you will find someone to sing with you
You've got a beat so true
People will follow you
You will find
Someone to sing with you

Sing your song
If it starts deep in your heart it can't be wrong
Sing so true
Got a song
Can't be wrong
And it'll be clear to you

WAKE UP
Wake Up
Get Up
Get Out
Stay Out
Til the sun goes down and our moms call us back in again

Let's get on our bikes and ride around the block again
There's bound to be something new in store
Since we was little tykes we've rambled ‘round the neighborhood
I never felt like staying in before.

Wake Up
Get Up
Get Out
Stay Out
Til the sun goes down and our moms call us back in again
MAKE IT UP AS GO
Since he was a little size
Noodles knew how to improvise all along
Could play any song
You've seen his face in a magazine
Playin' guitar like you've ever seen, it's true
Til his face turns blue

Playin' sounds that come from the future
Layering his riffs with a guitar looper
"Super duper!"

No need to plan it in advance
Improvise while the people dance with you
It's easy enough to do!

You make it up as you go
Fake your way through a guitar solo
No one will know but you know
You make it up as you go
Just leave it all up to chance
Make it up and go into a trance
Start with one note and just keep adding them on and on and on and on and...

He's really got a knack
For playin' guitar with no plan of attack
Listen closely you'll hear him singin' along

Playin' endless soloes
Lock the doors we have nowhere to go
He gets in the zone and he'll keep playin' it on and on and on and on and on...
Starts playin' and he never stops
3am got to call the cops, it's not right
I mean it's a school night!!!

At first it sounded pretty neat
But now we hope he'll just go to sleep
All night long- no more songs!

You make it up as you go
Fake your way through a guitar solo
No one will know but you know
You make it up as you go
Just leave it all up to chance
Make it up and go into a trance
Start with one note and just keep adding them on and on and on and on and...

BLANKIE
People tellin me
Tellin me to get rid of you
Like I can just forget the day we met
And everything that we've been through

I get it,
But I don't think I can let you go
You're much more to me than security
And it's something they'll never know

You're my blankie
You've really got a hold on me
Cause I'm holding tight to you
You're my blankie
All the pain and hurt you've seen me through
And you're soft and smelly too

People saying that I gotta grow up
People talking about my reputation
But my love for you is unconditional
And it doesn't need an explanation
All the haters they can step off
Cause I'm gonna keep you by my side
You're my blankie, I'm not ashamed of you
And my love for you I will not hide
GET IT ALL WRONG
When I was a knight, I tried to do what was right
But I messed up of course, and fell right off my horse
I tried dentistry, but it wasn't for me
Every patient I'd take, I gave em a toothache

What am I meant to be? Guess I'll have to wait and see
If I keep getting it all wrong, maybe I can write a song... maybe

An astronaut? Well that's a really good thought
But as a trainee, I flunked gravity
I tried farming the land to open a fruit stand
Though my intentions were pure, I was rotten for sure

What am I supposed to be? Guess we'll have to wait and see
If I keep getting it all wrong, maybe I can write a song... maybe

I was a baker, a mechanic, a garbage guy
I was helicopter pilot who couldn't fly
I tried a million things but they didn't stick
Like the time aboard a fishing boat I got seasick

HEY PUPPY
Hey Puppy...
Come and take a walk with me

Came into my life, just when I needed someone cute and cuddly
You smooth the ruff ruff edges around me, that is true
All bark and no bite, you're like the golden honey from the honeybee
I'm sweet on you, and you're sweet on me, that is true

Hey Puppy...
Come and take a walk with me

Puppy nose, puppy paws, puppy ears, puppy smile,
Puppy jump, puppy run
Puppy stretch, puppy yawn, puppy poop in the lawn
Puppy nap in the sun
Puppy when you wake up I'll be glad to see you
You'll be glad to see me
Cause' when we're together, well, everything's better
Nowhere I'd rather be, than with my puppy

And when you're an old dog, I'll still be at your side
Cause I'll be an old dude, still trying to match your stride
Let's take a walk together, I've got a poop bag and some treats
Rain or shine, we'll be fine,
Say hello to everyone we meet!

Hey Puppy...
You know that you're the sweetest You make me so happy And happiness, happiness is a warm pup
JUST ONE MORE THING
Just one more thing
I'll need my white blanket
And the stuffy from the floor
Just one more thing
Three hugs and a kiss now
And wave to me
When you close the door

And when you leave me in my bedroom, I think this isn't right
Cuz this twin size bed don't got no headroom, but now I think I'll say goodnight...

Uh just one more thing
Think I heard some squeaking
Or someone speaking from next door
Was that a doorbell ring?
These jammies are itchy
I've got no water anymore

But now that I have your attention, have I mentioned that you are great?
I'll shower you with my affection if it means staying up late

Just one more thing
How is it there's no end to
A universe that's infinite
And I gotta tell you
Every reason that I'm ready
To get a puppy for a pet

So many questions I've designed
For you to answer if you're inclined
Like what's the deal with gravity
I'm all ears: explain it to me!
Could we sleep in a tent?
Who did you pick for president?
Take your time with all of this because I really have all night!

Just one more thing
Just thought that I'd tell you
I may never sleep again
When the alarm clock rings
I'll be standing at your bedside
Dressed and ready for another spin
So we can do this all again

Cuz there's really no incentive for me
To stay in my bed when all the
Neighbor kids I'm sure can stay up
Long after their grown ups say good night
A SEED DOESN'T KNOW
A seed doesn't know, it just grows
Whatever it will be it will be
A seed doesn't know, it just grows
Plant it and you will see naturally

And that's how it happens
You add some water and in time you'll know
Just what that seed was meant to be

And when we brought you home
No way for us to guess just how you would grow
No way for us to see just who you'd be

A seed doesn't know, it just grows
Whatever it will be it will be
A seed doesn't know, it just grows
Plant it and you will see naturally

A mustard seed's never heard of mustard
A maple tree didn't know that's what it was gonna be
And every little flower, it bloomed eventually

I'll admit that sometimes I stop and wonder
If I've turned into who I was supposed to be
But when I look at you, you remind me

A seed doesn't know, it just grows
Whatever it will be it will be
A seed doesn't know, it just grows
Plant it and you will see naturally

Each passing hour and day and year was something new
Things we never thought could be came true
And now I see that I have grown along with you
I guess that I was learning too

You don't have to know, you just grow and grow
Can't wait to see what you will be
We didn't know, how you'd grow and grow
But there's something deep inside of you
Makes it sure that there's no hiding you
Now I can see what you're turning into
You're growing into you
