RUMBLE IN THE JUNGLE (THE ELEFUNK SONG)

From the CD Dream Big! available at RogerDay.com

The elephants in Borneo
They’re ready for their jungle show
See them lift their heavy feet
They’re stepping to the jungle beat
They wave their trunks up in the air
They wave ‘em like they just don’t care
They shake the trees shake the ground
With their funky jungle sound

CHORUS
Rumble, Rumble in the Jungle
(Everybody do the Elefunk -
You gotta stomp your feet and wave your trunk)

Don’t be nervous don’t be shy
You can do it if you try
It’s so easy you can learn
To be a funky pachyderm

CHORUS
Rumble, Rumble in the Jungle
(Everybody do the Elefunk -
You gotta stomp your feet and wave your trunk)

Everybody get low – in the Borneo
Everybody get real low – in the Borneo (Here we go…)
Everybody do the elefunk - you gotta stomp your feet & wave your trunk
Everybody do the elefunk - you gotta stomp your feet & wave your trunk
Everybody do the elefunk - you gotta stomp your feet & wave your trunk
Everybody do the elefunk - you gotta stomp your feet & wave your trunk

CHORUS
Rumble, Rumble in the Jungle
(Everybody do the Elefunk -
You gotta stomp your feet and wave your trunk)
Track Name: Zachary Hated Bumblebees
ZACHARY HATED BUMBLEBEES
Words & Music © 2007 Roger Day (All Rights Reserved)
From the CD Dream Big! available at RogerDay.com


CHORUS
Zachary Hated Bumblebees
He never liked to see ‘em flying
Zachary he would always flee
Whenever there was one near by him
He was scared that he would get stung
Just because he epidermis was young

Me and my friend Zach - we were playing hackey sack
Having lots of fun no doubt
When a buzzing sound up above the ground
Made Zach begin to scream and shout
He said, “There’s one thing that I fear.
And now that thing’s right next to my ear!”

So Zachary scrambled up the tree
Hoping maybe that would work
But in a sneak attack one landed on his back
And Zach began to go berserk
He said, “It’s been nice to know you my friend!”
And then he jumped right off of the limb

CHORUS

Well, I stood and stared as he tumbled through the air
Thinking, “This is gonna really hurt.”
But there was one last limb between the ground and him
It caught the collar of his shirt
He wiped his brow and said, “Phew, that was close!”
But then a you-know-who landed right on his nose

He crossed his eyes and he said, “I’m gonna die!”
And he did a little shimmy shake
That’s when I heard a snap - a creak...and then a crack!
As the entire limb began to break
Everything was quiet…except for Zachary’s scream (!!!)
I waited for the splat - but instead of that
He did a little twist - and then a double flip
And he landed safely on his trampoline

CHORUS
Track Name: Roly Poly (Featuring The Crickets)
ROLY POLY
Words & Music © 2007 Roger Day (All Rights Reserved)
From the CD Dream Big! available at RogerDay.com

I was born in Birmingham
Smack dab in the middle of Alabam’
Where the hills are filled with iron ore
But for a kid there was so much more

I’d kick over a rock with my big toely
I’d say “Looky there Mama. It’s a Roly Poly!”

Ready…Ready!...1, 2, 3, 4

CHORUS
Roly Poly
Roly Poly
Roly Poly
Roly Poly

The summers there get burning hot
You don’t feel like doing Bo Diddley squat
Yeah, you try to sneak inside your house
But your Mama says, “It’s pretty, now go back out!”

You kick over a rock with your big toely
You say, “Looky there Mama. It’s a Roly Poly!”

Ready…Ready!...1, 2, 3, 4

CHORUS

Some people call ‘em doodle bugs
When you drop ‘em into the bottom of your little brother’s milk jug
They’re in your garden. They’re in your yard
Look around. It’s not hard

You’re gonna find ‘em where the dirt is cool
Don’t smush ‘em that’s they only rule
Look a little bit like an armadillo digging up the sod
They’re the mighty, mighty isopods!

Ready…Ready!...1, 2, 3, 4

Hello Sunshine shining on me
Over the rooftops free as a breeze
Hello Sunshine what can I say

We’ve gotta wipe the sleepy, sleep right out of our eyes
Open up the window stretch your muscles out you
Just can’t help it got to sing and shout

Hello Sunshine shining on me
Over the rooftops free as a breeze
Hello Sunshine what can I say
Nothing’s gonna keep me smiling today

It’s time to head ‘em up yeah, it’s time to move

March, march, march in our own parade
Till it’s finally time to stop in the evening shade

Zoe is the girl with the big imagination
She’s living in a world of her very own creation
In the backyard she’s the queen
Of lands that nobody else has seen

CHORUS
Zoe’s World we’re living in the middle of
Zoe’s World we’re living in the middle of
Zoe’s World we’re living in the middle of Zoe’s World

She pretends the grass is an undiscovered ocean
That she’s gotta get across with her bottle of potion
Made out of nandina berries and holly leaves
To cure the prince of his rare disease

CHORUS

I wonder what she’ll do when grows up someday
Will she create a world where we all find a new way
To plant a seed or to make a friend
Where a girl’s imagination never ends

They hop on one foot and then the other
While blowing kisses at their father and their mother
They’re happy so happy they hop all day
They’re smiling big smiles and that’s why I say…

CHORUS
Happy Hippos Hopping
Spinning, laughing, never stopping
I don’t know why they hop to the sky
Everywhere around there are hippos high up off the ground
Without a care up in the air

They hop in rivers in shallow waters
While one eye watches for the crocodile’s young daughter
They’re happy so happy they hop all day
They’re smiling great big hippo smiles that’s why I say…

CHORUS

They’re happy so very happy they hop all day
They’re smiling great big hippo smiles that’s why I say…

LIFE IS A MIRACLE

From the CD Dream Big! available at RogerDay.com

Thy Life is a Miracle. Speak yet Again.
- William Shakespeare

“Die lewe is ‘n wonderwerk”!

I did not know my heart’s true size
Until I looked into your eyes
And held onto your tiny hand
I think I finally understand

Life is a Miracle

I was sad as sad can be
There was a dark cloud hanging over me
But now the secret’s been revealed
And I know how the angels feel

Life is a Miracle

Eyes on the prize I was heading to the pinnacle
Looking out for number one an original Mr. Cynical
Climbing to the tip top never gonna stop - I did not need a thing
Then you came along and you rocked my world
My little baby boy and my little baby girl
And now you hear me sing
Everybody in the whole world is gonna hear me sing!

You were all that we could think about
Now look at you another year of growing up fast
Before you blow your candles out

Make a wish for something incredibly good
Like a heart that’s always filled with love
The stars are lining up above for a…

With your feet to the sky both feet on the ground

Raise a bunch of vegetables and take a big munch

CHORUS

Philo Farnsworth working in his field
He got an idea that was so unreal
It popped in his head when he was only fourteen
Pictures talking on a screen
But he never could have known what would happen after that
Couch Potatoes getting fat
Everybody up before you get French-fried
Open up the door and go outside!

I love you. Yes, you.
Darling, I do. Love you.
More than my shoe. PeeYew!

And if I had a falling star to call my own
I would call you up on the telephone
And I would say egg-zak-a-lak-a-ly this
There’s not another wish that I could wish
That could make me feel like this…

I love you. Yes, you.
Darling do. Love you.
More than my shoe. Pee-Yew!
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
Honest, forever and truly in love with you!

Mr. McGillicuddy
That old fuddy duddy
Never wipes his nose

He just lets that floody
River of mucus muddy
Stretch down to his toes

Mr. McGillicuddy
Tell you what he
Needs for us to do

We should be his buddy
And help him to study
How to use tissue
