BEST OF FRIENDS

© 2002 Rrraargh! Music (BMI)
Words and music by James Dague
Sung by ScribbleKitty, ScribbleMonster, ScribbleBunny and ScribblePiggy

We have been friends all our lives
You know just what it takes to make me smile
Together we share our dreams
I’m glad we’re all friends
Because we make one great team

You tell me first when there’s good news
You’ll be there for me win or lose
I know you like me just because
You let your feelings show, I know that . . .

Chorus:
We will always be the best of friends
Caring, sharing, having fun, we imagine and pretend
We will always be the best of friends
‘Cause our friendship never ends

Your loyalty is true
That’s how I know that I can count on you
We all get along when we play
You manage to find the nicest things to say

We’re always helpful, always kind
We’ve learned to read each other’s minds
You make me laugh
I love to hear your jokes, I know that . . .

(Chorus)

You’re all so good at listening
That’s why I tell you everything
Being with you is wonderful
No matter where we go, I know that . . .

(Chorus)

A MONSTER GOES RRRAARGH!

© 2002 Rrraargh! Music (BMI)
Words and music by James Dague
Sung by ScribbleMonster

A pig says “oink”, cats “meow”
If you hear “moo”, that would be a cow
Some birds “tweet” and dogs say “ruff” or “arf”
I am a monster and a monster goes “rrraargh”

Ducks go “quack”, horses “neigh”
I’m not sure what rabbits say
Snakes will “hissss”
And sheep are known to “baaaaah”
But I am a monster and a monster goes “rrraargh”

The bear, dinosaur, rhinoceros,
Lions and tigers, they all roar, I guess
The problem is, you can’t tell them apart
They’re not like me
When I “Rrraargh, rrraargh, rrraargh”!
Oh “Rrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrgh!”
Heh-heh.

A fish says “glub”, coyotes “howl”
If they ask “who?”, the answer is an owl
Bees “buzz” and lightning bugs just spark
I am a monster and a monster goes “rrraargh!”

WISHIN' AROUND

© 2002 Rrraargh! Music (BMI)
Words and music by James Dague
Sung by ScribbleKitty

Chorus:
I’ve been wishin’ around on a star
And hopin’ my thoughts reach that far
Bright and beautiful
A place to keep all my dreams

I’ve been wishin’ around on a star
Believing is not very hard
Bright and beautiful
A place to keep all my dreams

The moonlight wakes and takes her place in the sky
The stars come out to join her
Star light, star bright, please take note of this dream
And hold it safe above me

(Chorus)

And when you’re gone in the daylight or lost in the dark
I’ll still be wishin’ away with my heart

(Chorus)

Everybody learn to count
I am ready to teach you
Everybody learn to count
My friends are here counting with you

Ten’s a big number
Made with small numbers
One and zero
Come on now and count with me

(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Everybody learn to count
I am ready to teach you
Everybody learn to count
My friends are here counting with you

Use your ten fingers
Use your ten toes
I don’t have those
So come on now and count with me

(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Everybody learn to count
I am ready to teach you
Everybody learn to count
My friends are here counting with you

One, two, three
Four, five, six,
Seven, eight, nine – TEN!
Come on now, one more time!

(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
Everybody learn to count
I am ready to teach you
Everybody learn to count
My friends are here counting with you

(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!)

DANCE PARTY!

Words and music by James Dague
Sung by ScribbleMonster, ScribblePiggy, ScribbleBunny and ScribbleKitty

Stop! Do a scary monster dance
Rock your legs and arms and hands
Put on a scary monster face
Now dance!

Stop! Let’s pretend you’re in my pen
Rolling ’round and ’round and then
You’re all covered in mud
Now dance!

Stop! Squat down on the ground
Spring up and then get down
You’re jumping like bunny
Now dance!

Stop! Hunch your shoulders like a cat
Put your claws out just like that
You’ve got to sneak around
Now dance!

All right kids at home, your turn
Make up your own dance!

Stop!

Now dance!

Toys, toys, pick up the toys
Toys, toys, pick up the toys
Pick up the toys and put them away
So we can play another day

Toys, toys, pick up the toys
Toys, toys, pick up the toys
Pick up the toys and put them away
So we can play another day

Toys – we’ve got so many toys
Where’d we get all these toys from?

Toys – we’ve got so many toys
Where’d we get all these toys from?

There’s a toy over there!
There’s a toy over there!
There’s a toy over there!
There’s a toy over there!

DO THE BOUNCE

(Lyrics altered ever so slightly by James Dague)
Sung by ScribbleBunny

If you give it all you have
I’ll show you all my brand new dance
You’ve got to give it every ounce
When you learn to do the bounce

Come on, do the bounce with me

It’s the only dance that counts
Come on everyone, learn the bounce
All you do is jump up and down
You’ll be the coolest kid in town

That’s how to be, just like me, ScribbleBunny!
So let’s bounce!
Bounce! Bounce! Bounce! Yeah!

That’s how to be, just like me, ScribbleBunny!
So let’s bounce!
Bounce! Bounce! Bounce!
Do the bounce!

How I wonder what you are

THE BABY'S SLEEPING

© 2002 Rrraargh! Music (BMI)
Words and music by James Dague
Sung by ScribbleMonster, ScribbleKitty and ScribbleBunny
(with a teeny, tiny bit of help from ScribbleSis)

Hi guys, come on in
But try to keep down your voice
(Shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh)
Maybe we can read
Or we could play with some quiet toys
(Shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh)
Is there a special reason
Why we’re trying not to make much noise?
(Shh-shh-shh)

The baby’s sleeping! The baby’s sleeping!
The baby’s sleeping! The baby’s sleeping!

Would you like to draw a while?
That wouldn’t be too loud, I bet
(Shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh)
Let’s have a tea party!
I’ll run home and get my set
(Shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh)
Why are we whispering?
I think you said, but I forget
(Shh-shh-shh)

The baby’s sleeping! The baby’s sleeping!
The baby’s sleeping! The baby’s sleeping!

(Shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh)
(Shh-shh-shh, shh-shh-shh)

The baby’s sleeping! The baby’s sleeping!
The baby’s sleeping! The baby’s sleeping!
Shhhhhh!

Whaaah!

SCRUB-A-DUB

© 2002 Rrraargh! Music (BMI)
Words and music by James Dague
Sung by ScribblePiggy

Come on we’re gonna take a bath
Scrub your hair down
Scrub your eyebrows, too
Wash around behind your ears
Wipe your nose
Wipe your mouth, tongue and teeth, too

Scrub all over
Don’t forget your shoulders
Scrub-a-dub, scrub-a-dub
Scrub-a-dub, scrub-a-dub

You’ve got to splash around your arms
And your elbows
Your hands and fingernails
Reach around and mop your back
Rub your tummy
If you’ve got one, wash your tail

Scrub all over
Don’t forget your belly button
Scrub-a-dub, scrub-a-dub
Scrub-a-dub, scrub-a-dub

Lather up around your legs
And your kneecaps
You’re getting squeaky clean
Soak your toes and scour up
All those piggies
And the spaces in between

Scrub all over
Don’t forget to pull the plug
Scrub-a-dub, scrub-a-dub
Scrub-a-dub, scrub-a-dub
