ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
**********************************************************************************************************************

"I still have kids who bought his CD who will listen to nothing else in the car. He could be the new King of Kiddie Rock N Roll!" - Sharon Weber (Jefferson Public Library)

H-E-L-L-O! My name is Mr. Billy,

I’m a full time academic entertainer from De Pere, Wisconsin, a three time Children's Music Web Award winner and I’ve been voted "Northeastern Wisconsin's Family Favorite Children's Entertainer" for four years in a row.

Welcome to my first CD "Hello, My Name is Mr. Billy.

All the songs are performed on electric and electronic instruments and have a strong 80’s MTV vibe. I think this makes the CD a good choice for parents of young children that grew up listening to groups like the B52’s, Soft Cell, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Duran Duran, etc. But the topics and lyrics are 100% kid friendly. There are songs about animals, the first day of school, insects, colors, being different and more.

I’ve added the lyrics to all songs here at the bottom of this page (scroll down). Please listen to all the song samples and read (or sing) along. If you like what you hear, please check out my other CDs (links on the side) and leave a nice review for others (share your opinions with the world! See what others have written below).

Oh, BTW…there are very few copies of this CD left. If you like what you hear you may want to take advantage of the 30% quantity discount offer (get one for a friend, fellow teacher or your local library.

If he shows up late we’ll charge him fifty cents
But you’re all here now so ready, set, go!

Bring your sister and your brother and your big pet ape
Bring your granny and your auntie and your uncle Joe
Everybody shake hands and say hello!

And fly to the stars if you learn enough

You can travel the world from Spain to Tennessee
You can see what you want to see but you have learn a lot first

You can be a scientist a carpenter or the President, you bet!
Just remember one important thing
If you want to winner you can never be a quitter

You can write a book a movie or a play
You can say what you want to say but you have learn a lot first

You have learn a lot first
You have learn a lot first
You have learn a lot first
You have learn a lot first

Bubble Trouble

Once when I was a little boy I decided not to go out and play
I wanted to help my mom with the household chores that day
I took out the garbage cans before she even knew
And she couldn’t believe her eyes when she saw me clean my room
I went to the kitchen and saw the dishes being soaked
So I loaded the dishwasher but I couldn’t find the soap
I went and got my bubble bath and poured a little in
It didn’t look like there was enough so I poured the whole box in

Then I saw, one, two three tiny bubbles
Four, five, six tiny bubbles
Seven, eight, nine tiny bubbles floating out the dishwasher door
There were ten, twenty, thirty more bubbles
Forty, fifty, sixty more bubbles
Seventy, eighty, ninety bubbles
Bubble trouble for sure!

When my mother saw the mess, she didn’t yell or scream
She knew I was trying to help her and not be mean
After we cleaned it up I brushed my teeth and went to bed
But I couldn’t count any sheep with all those bubbles in my head

I saw, one, two three tiny bubbles
Four, five, six tiny bubbles
Seven, eight, nine tiny bubbles floating out the dishwasher door
There were ten, twenty, thirty more bubbles
Forty, fifty, sixty more bubbles
Seventy, eighty, ninety bubbles
Bubble trouble for sure!
There were one hundred, two hundred, three hundred bubbles
Four hundred, five hundred, six hundred bubbles
Seven hundred, eight hundred, nine hundred bubbles, bubble trouble for sure
There were one thousand, two thousand, three thousand bubbles
Four thousand, five thousand, six thousand bubbles
Seven thousand, eight thousand, nine thousand bubbles
I’m not kidding I thought there was a million bubbles on the kitchen floor
-----------------

Butterfly

I want to be a butterfly
So I can flap my wings and fly
And sail away in the bright blue sky
Oh, I want to be a butterfly

I’d wear a smile not a butterfly frown
With two antennas that wiggle around
Look at my wings they’re gold and they’re pink
I look pretty like this, don’t you think?

CHORUS

There’s nothing wrong with the way that I am
But it’s fun to make believe and pretend
So if you want to play this game with me
Put on your wings and fly away in my dream

CHORUS
-----------------

Different

What if I was a monkey?
And I was always climbing trees?
Swinging round from vine to vine and picking off my fleas
Would you want to hug me or would you take me to the zoo?
If I were different would you still like me and let me play with you?

And if I was an aardvark
Always sniffing on the ground
Looking for the tasty ants running up and down
Would you want to hug me or would you take me to the zoo?
If I were different would you still like me and let me play with you?

What if I were different?
Would it make a difference?
What if I were different?
Would you, could you, would you still like me?

What if was a penguin?
I would eat fish raw
I wouldn’t wear a hat or coat in the winter or fall
Would you want to hug me or would you take me to the zoo?
If I were different would you still like me and let me play with you?

CHORUS

And if I was a wise old owl
I would say whoo-whoo
I’d sleep all day and stay up all night looking for my food
Would you want to hug me or would you take me to the zoo?
If I were different would you still like me and let me play with you?

What if I were different, would you still like me?

How Many Arms Does Your Octopus Have?

How Many Arms Does Your Octopus Have?
Does he splash them around when you give him a bath?
Can he hold the soap while he washes his back?
How Many Arms Does Your Octopus Have?

How Many Things Can Your Octopus Do?
Does he like to draw and color with you?
Does he play outside when you ask him to?
How Many Things Can Your Octopus Do?

Your octopus can do many of things
He can wear 8 gloves or 8 big shiny rings
He can bounce 8 balls or shake 8 tambourines
He can play 8 games while he dances and sings

How Many Arms Does Your Octopus Have?
Does he wash them all before he eats his snack?
If he borrows your toys does he bring them back?
How Many Arms Does Your Octopus Have?

How Many Feet Does Your Octopus Have?
Does he have 8 feet or does he have 8 hands?
It just depends if he sits or stands.
How Many Feet Does Your Octopus Have?

Your octopus might swim away
If you don’t share and always want your way
If you want to make sure he stays
Always be nice each and every day

How Many Arms Does Your Octopus Have?
Can you count them all if he holds them out?
But if he tickles you, you’d laugh 8 laughs
How Many Arms Does Your Octopus Have?
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8!
How Many Arms Does Your Octopus Have?
-----------------

I like Dinosaurs

I like Dinosaurs
I like to hear them roar
I like Dinosaurs
Because I’m very brave
I like Dinosaurs
I like to take them to the store
I like Dinosaurs
As long as they behave

I would let a dinosaur sleep in my bed
If he didn’t try to sit on my head
I would let a dinosaur watch my TV
As long as I had enough room to see

CHORUS

I would love to share my lunch one
I think that would be lots and lots of fun
It wouldn’t matter if he’s green, brown or red
It would be really cool to have dinosaur friend

CHORUS

Now, what kind of dinosaur song would this be if we didn’t feature those four famous dancing dinosaurs the stegosaurus, triceratops, brontosaurus and everybody’s favorite non-vegetarian the tyrannosaurus rex!

If you listen closely you can hear them coming
Shaking the ground with their dinosaur drumming!
Watch them dance you can count them all
One, two, three and T-rex makes four
They’re not scary when they dance in fact it’s funny
As long as the T-rex doesn’t get hungry!
-----------------

Just Think

I like to think I think it’s really cool
To feed you head with great stuff everyday at school
If you didn’t have a brain you’d always wear blank face
In-between your ears there would be nothing but space
But you have gray matter so learn how to use it
Don’t take it for granted and never abuse it
Your brain is like a muscle so don’t let it get weak
Exercise it everyday just think!

Just think (think) think about it
Just think (think) no doubt about it
Just think (think) a thinky-dink
Just think about the thought that you thought about thinking

If you take good care of what’s under your hair
And don’t use your brain to sit on your chair
You can impress your family and amaze your friends
When you use your brain the fun never ends
What will you think of next, who knows?
Just keep on thinking and your thought power grows
Your brain is like a muscle so don’t let it get weak
Exercise it everyday just think!

CHORUS

Yeah, whatever you do it’s all up to you
If you can think it and believe it you can make it come true
Your brain is like a muscle so don’t let it get weak
Exercise it everyday just think!

CHORUS
-----------------

So Many Colors

There are so many colors.
So many colors, so many colors
There are so many colors that you can see
There are so many colors.
So many colors, so many colors
There are so many colors lets just sing about three

Well the very first color is pretty bright
You see it every day but not as much in the night
It’s the color of the sky and the oceans too
You guessed right if you said it was blue!

The second color you can see up and down
It’s in the trees and on the ground
It’s the color of a dollar in the USA
If you guessed it was green then you’re on your way

This is the color that’s last on our list
Some Firemen paint their trucks with it
When you see this color you have to stop
If you guessed it was red then you’re really hot!

There are so many colors.
So many colors, so many colors
There are so many colors that you can see
There are so many colors.
So many colors, so many colors
How many more can we name, let’s see

There’s purple, orange, gray, brown, teal and violet
Turquoise, aqua, black, lime and don’t you forget
Magenta, tan, gold, yellow, fuchsia and cream
Silver, navy, white, pink that makes 20 + 3

There are so many colors.
So many colors, so many colors
There are so many colors that you can see
-----------------

Telephone

It doesn’t matter if you’re far away from here
You could be next door or in some other place
If you have my number you can always call on me
It’ll put a smile on my face

Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone

I hope that we can always be the best of friends
Spending time together everyday
The telephone can be a friend that keeps us close
Even if we have to move away

Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone

Hello, it’s me. Tell me what’s up
I was thinking of you so I called you up
Before I used the phone I had to look
For the number you gave to me it was in my phone book
Now don’t forget you can call me too
If you want my number I’ll give it to you
But if you try to call and I’m not home
I have a machine that answers the phone
Wait for the beep then say your number and name
But talk real slow so I can hear what you’re saying
Then I can call you back and before you know
You will hear my voice on your telephone
And if you have an emergency
Call 911 immediately
Your phone is not just a cool device
If you’re in trouble it could save your life
What’s that number? (911)
Repeat that number (911)

But if everything is A-OK for you today
And there are no emergencies that you can see
Give me a call just to say hi
Operators are standing by!

Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone
Call me on the telephone
-----------------

The Sleeping Song

Daddy is sleeping don't wake him up
Daddy is sleeping everybody quiet
Daddy is sleeping his eyes are shut
Daddy is sleeping don't wake him up

Mommy is sleeping don't make a sound
Mommy is sleeping tiptoe around
Mommy is sleeping don't play too loud
Mommy is sleeping don't make a sound

Everybody needs sleep
Everybody needs sleep
Everybody needs sleep
To be your best you need your rest!

The kitty is sleeping she's rolled into a ball
The kitty is sleeping at the end of the hall
The kitty is sleeping her name don't call
The kitty is sleeping she's rolled into a ball

Our neighbors are sleeping on that live on our block
Our neighbors are sleeping every door is locked
Our neighbors are sleeping they set their clocks
Our neighbors are sleeping on that live on our block

All the children are sleeping and you should be too
All the children are sleeping and dreaming it's true
All the children are sleeping they're not at the zoo
All the children are sleeping and you should be too
-----------------

What I Say

Here’s a song that’s lots of fun
Because you move all around before it’s done
The rules are simple come on let’s play
All you have to do is what I say

Stand up and sit down
Stand up and turn all around
Sit down and clap your hands
Stand up, close your eyes and open them up
Now sit down and say horary!
Because you did everything that I said today

That was so much fun let’s play again
But we’ll speed it up for you and your friends
The rules are simple come on let’s play
All you have to do is what I say

CHORUS

Do you think you can do it faster then that?
I bet you can let’s try it out
The rules are simple come on let’s play
All you have to do is what I say

CHORUS

You did everything that I said today
You did everything that I said today
-----------------

Good-bye

I’m so glad we had this time together
This special day I always will remember
This is the last song I will play
Before I put my guitar away
Good-bye my friend until we meet again
Good-bye my friend until we meet again

G-O-O-D-B-Y-E
G-O-O-D-B-Y-E
G-O-O-D-B-Y-E
Good-bye

Lori

excellent music - my kids love it

Nikki Boxrucker

We love Mr. Billy
Mr. Billy played for my daughter's daycare. Well now Mr. Billy has a 4 yr old groupie! She talked about him for days. So, I purchased the CD. She loves it!!!! The songs are fun and have some learning in them. She sings along and laughs at the funny parts. I don't mind listening to it either. We can't wait for his next CD to come out this fall.

Paul F. Jadin (Former Mayor of Green Bay, WI)

Mr. Billy does a great job!
"I am very pleased that Mr. Billy has added another option for our children's education and entertainment"

Edna C. Justice, Parent of Two

Fun and entertaining
"We've been following Mr. Billy for more than a year now and I'd say one of my kids is crazy about him because whenever I mention of a Mr. Billy show, rest assured, she won't stop bugging me about it. Among the songs of Mr. Billy she likes are "Reading is Magic", "Bubble Trouble", "The Dog Eat My Homework", and "The Ants in Your Pants Dance". I think most of Mr. Billy's songs are educational and they are really intended for children since their wordings are easy to understand. I should mention that every show Mr. Billy does is really fun and entertaining"

Damian LaCroix (Principal, Suamico Elementary School)

"I give Mr. Billy my strongest recommendation"

Yolo Diaz (Parent)

We love your music
"Diego 5 and Andres 3 just love you, there are your number one fans. They love your music, and Diego has express that he likes the fact that is rock and roll."

Kathy Stein (Parent & Daycare Owner)

We love your music
"I have children ranging from 4 months to 12 years of age and they all enjoy you immensely. The children ask to put your CD's on before the vehicle is even started and they sing along to all the songs. Your music is so easy for the young children to pick up on and they are constantly dancing to the rhythm."

Jim Anger: folksnger, children's musician, reading-writing educa

Hello Demonstrates the Amazing Musical Versatility of Kids Rocker Mr. Billy!
When you glance at the cover of Hello, it looks warm and friendly. When you open the cover to take out the CD, the two photos of Mr. Billy with his infectious grin tell you you're going to have a lot of fun with the songs in this album. And you are proved to be absolutely right! Just as in his library concerts, when Mr. Billy opens with a Hello song, he does so in the album. When the concert draws to a close, Mr. Billy sings a goodbye song with the kids. He does that , too, in
the cd. and in between there are pounding rocking songs, as in I Like Dinosaurs (as long as they behave!), with a pounding beat that helps you picture huge dinos stomping through the swamp! Mr. Billy's choice of beat and melody for a song are always right on. He offers us a great message song, You Can (being anything you want to be), with a detemined steady rockg beat; but sometimes the softer side of Mr. Billy comes through, as in in the airy, floating soft- rock sounds and lyrics of Butterfly. Yes, there are message songs in the mix, and there should be! But Mr. Billy's messages are wrapped gently in the melodies and thoughtfully-crafted lyrics of his songs. Telephone -- (Call me on the Telephone) fits that description perfectly, as he shows us, in subtle language how important it is that we communicate with each other. Yes, this is a special album! Lots of fun, nice variety, and messages expressed in gentle, subtle lyrics! I'm glad I own this album. You should, too. Know you'd be glad you got it! And there's lots more fun to come with Mr. Billy, in whatever music he shares with us in the several other albums in his pocket!

Jessika

it was a good review
this song was good it had me listening to it for hours. If you can make more songs like that i would get all the cd's that ever come out from you alright.
