about

"If I were a kid, I would listen to this album all the time. I sort of am still a kid, even though i'm 25 years old now, and I still want to listen to this album all the time.

For me there are several standout tracks on this album, Once There was a Giant, Little Chicken on Rollerskates, the list goes on, but my personal favourite is 'What Noise Does A Camera Make?' I like this song so much because all the sounds of the things are very accurate, particularly the rainbow." ~ Peter Bibby ~

Track Name: 01 When The River Did Flood
when we lived on the river and the river did flood
there were fishes swimming by
we caught them with our hands and it was fun
when the river did flood
when the river did flood

i was a young boy swimming by
i caught a fish swimming by
when the river did flood
when the river did flood
the river did flood

now i live in a different land
i drive a taxi in this land
i like it here and i like my job
but i can't catch fish in my hand

when the river did flood…
flood, flood
flood, flood
flood, flood
flood, flood
Track Name: If You Want A Way To Have A Nice Day
if you want a way to have a nice day
this is a thing that you can do
smile at somebody

if you want a way to have a nice day
cook something for your mum or dad
smile at your brother or sister
and help them
with something they're doing
if they want your help

do something you like to do
maybe it's drawing or going for a walk
whatever you like
that's what you can do

here's a way to have a nice day
pat a pet like a cat or dog
here's a way to have a nice day

if you drink your milk

you'll be strong like a giant
you'll be gentle like a lamb
you'll be happy as a starfish
you'll be jumping like a kangaroo
Track Name: In the Forest, Far Away
in the forest far away
lived a princess asleep
a prince came and kissed her on the cheek
then she woke up
and they went swimming
in the lake

in the forest far away
was a prince at the top of a tower
he had long hair
and let it out the window
and the princess climbed up
and helped him down the stairs

in a forest far away
lived three pigs
hiding from a wolf
but they were smart
and they got away
far far away

in a forest far away
lived a girl on a tuffet
she saw a little spider
but she didn't get scared

in a forest far away
teddy bears had a picnic
with cakes and pickles and sandwiches
a delicious picnic

then the normal days
some days are sadder days
than others

and everyone one sometimes feels sad
Track Name: It's Time
it's time for you to go to bed
think of nice things in your bed
with your soft pyjamas on
you'll have nice dreams
in the morning you'll have toast

it's time for you to go to bed
give your family a cuddle
the world will be sleeping too
animals and all your pals
plants and fish and the ocean
sleeping soundly
sleeping soundly like you
