Good Morning

Good morning, good morning
G-O-O-D morning
Good morning, good morning
G-O-O-D morning

Wake up sleepy head
Open up your eyes
Roll down out of bed
The Sun is saying “Hi”

Time to brush your teeth
Dress and come alive
Breakfast sure is sweet
Never pass it by

CHORUS

W-A-K-E U-P (wake up)
W-A-K-E U-P (wake up)
W-A-K-E U-P (wake up)
W-A-K-E U-P (wake up)
W-A-K-E U-P (wake up)

Listen to the birds
Singing happy tunes
It would be absurd
Sleeping way past noon!

Clap Your Hands

Clap your hands in the morning
Clap your hands in the night
Clap your hands to the left
Clap your hands to the right
Clap your hands with a smile
Clap your hands with a frown
Clap your hands way up
Clap your hands way down

Stop…wait…listen…do what I say…two times…
Clap your hands (Repeat 4 times)

Finger Snap in the morning
Finger Snap in the night
Finger Snap to the left
Finger Snap to the right
Finger Snap with a smile
Finger Snap with a frown
Finger Snap way up
Finger Snap way down

Stop…wait…listen…do what I say…two times…
Finger Snap (Repeat 4 times)

Stomp your feet in the morning
Stomp your feet in the night
Stomp your feet to the left
Stomp your feet to the right
Stomp your feet with a smile
Stomp your feet with a frown
Stomp your feet way up
Stomp your feet way down

Stop…wait…listen…do what I say…two times…
Stomp your feet (Repeat 4 times)

Everybody get out of your seat
Stand up stretch, take a breath real deep
Every boy and girl…keep your eyes on me
It’s time to see if you can do all three!

Stop…wait…listen…do what I say…two times…
Do all three! (Repeat 4 times)

Something Fishy

Five little fishes swimming in the sea
Along came a big fish hungry as can be
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
They hear the big fish say
Then he opened up his mouth…CHOMP!
And four fishes swam away

Four little fishes swimming in the sea
Along came a big fish hungry as can be
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
They hear the big fish say
Then he opened up his mouth…CHOMP!
And three fishes swam away

Three little fishes swimming in the sea
Along came a big fish hungry as can be
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
They hear the big fish say
Then he opened up his mouth…CHOMP!
And two fishes swam away

Two little fishes swimming in the sea
Along came a big fish hungry as can be
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
They hear the big fish say
Then he opened up his mouth…CHOMP!
And one fishy swam away

One little fishy swimming in the sea
Along came a big fish hungry as can be
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
He heard the big fish say
Then he opened up his mouth…CHOMP!
And no fishes swam away

One big fat fish swimming in the sea
Along came a white shark hungry as can be
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
He heard the white shark say
Then he opened up his mouth…CHOMP!
And the shark ate something fishy for his dinner on that day

Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo

Don't be sitting round your roundhouse
Get your bogies on the track
Fire up your firebox
Throw your throttle back
Prepare to burn some coal
Cause we're gonna rock and roll
Like a chugga chugga choo choo train

Make a piston pushing motion
Shake your cylinders loose
Rattle your gondola
Jiggle your caboose
Put some wiggle in your tail
And rock around the rail
Like a chugga chugga choo choo train

Chugga chugga choo choo
Chugga chugga whoo whoo
Chugga chugga choo choo
Here comes the train!
Chugga chugga choo choo
Chugga chugga whoo whoo
Chugga chugga choo choo
Chugga chugga choo choo train

Now you're a rockin rollin engine
With a boiler full of steam
Let me hear your whistle blowing
Give your signal bell a ring
Moms and dads girls and boys
It’s time to make some noise
Like a chugga chugga choo choo train

Chugga chugga choo choo
Chugga chugga whoo whoo
Chugga chugga choo choo
Here comes the train!
Chugga chugga choo choo
Chugga chugga whoo whoo
Chugga chugga choo choo
Chugga chugga choo choo train

I Heard Said the Bird

“I heard”, said the bird
“I heard”, said the bird
“I heard”, said the bird
“I heard”, said the bird
A brand new baby’s on the way, big news on the farm today

Is it a baby cow? That’s a big NO!
Is it a baby duck? That’s a big NO!
Is it a baby hare? That’s a big NO!
A new one on the farm to see, can you guess what it will be?

“I declare”, said the hare
“I declare”, said the hare
“I declare”, said the hare
“I declare”, said the hare
A brand new baby’s on the way, big news on the farm today

Is it a baby chicken? That’s a big NO!
Is it a baby cat? That’s a big NO!
Is it a baby goose? That’s a big NO!
A new one on the farm to see, can you guess what it will be?

“And how”, said the cow
“And how”, said the cow
“And how”, said the cow
“And how”, said the cow
A brand new baby’s on the way, big news on the farm today

Is it a baby goat? That’s a big NO!
Is it a baby pig? That’s a big NO!
Is it a baby donkey? That’s a big NO!
A new one on the farm to see, can you guess what it will be?

“Of course”, said the horse
“Of course”, said the horse
“Of course”, said the horse

A brand new tiny baby boy is our farms new pride and joy!
A brand new tiny baby boy is our farms new pride and joy!

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed that fly,
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,
That wiggled and jiggled and jiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly -
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a bird;
How absurd, to swallow a bird!
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and jiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly -
Perhaps she'll die

There was an old lady who swallowed a cat.
Imagine that, she swallowed a cat.
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird ...
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and jiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she'll die

There was an old lady who swallowed a dog.
What a hog!To swallow a dog!
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat...
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird ...
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and jiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a goat.
She opened her throat and swallowed a goat!
She swallowed the goat to catch the dog...
She swallowed the dog to catch the cat...
She swallowed the cat to catch the bird ...
She swallowed the bird to catch the spider
That wiggled and jiggled and jiggled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed a fly
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a horse -
She died, of course.
Awww...we need a different ending!

I Have Five Senses

I have five senses
I have five senses
I have five senses
1-2-3-4-5
(Repeat)

I hear with my ear
I spy with my eye
With my nose I smell a rose
When my mouth is open wide
I can taste what’s inside
I use my hands very much
I use them when I feel and touch

I have five senses
I have five senses
I have five senses

Bernie the Bubble Breathing Dragon


Bernie wasn’t like the other dragons,
She was pink, not brown or red or green
No time for dragon games
Like burning things with flames
Scaring kids and acting really mean

She never really liked to play with fire
Dragon smoke always smelled like trouble
But she really liked to laugh
And take hot soapy baths
Drinking bathtub water, blowing bubbles

OH! Bernie the bubble breathing dragon
The most amazing thing that you have ever seen
There’s no fire in her throat because she never liked to smoke
She comes to town and everyone gets clean
The most amazing thing you’ve ever seen

Then one day at her dragon school
It was time to take the fire test
When she opened her mouth
Only bubbles would come out
Although she tried and tried to do her very best

Bully dragons laughed and called her names
She flew away into the sky above
So many bubble baths
Had put her fire out at last
And she became the bubble queen we love!

OH! Bernie the bubble breathing dragon
The most amazing thing that you have ever seen
There’s no fire in her throat because she never liked to smoke
She comes to town and everyone gets clean
The most amazing thing you’ve ever seen


One hundred, two hundred, three hundred, four!
Five hundred, six hundred, seven hundred, more!
Eight hundred, nine hundred look at Bernie go!
A thousand bubbles in the sky, watch them as they sail on by!

One thousand, two thousand, three thousand, four!
Five thousand, six thousand, seven thousand, more!
Eight thousand, nine thousand look at Bernie go!
A million bubbles in the air, try to catch them if you dare!

One million, two million, three million, four!
Five million, six million, seven million, more!
Eight million, nine million look at Bernie go!
A billion bubbles in the sky, watch them as they sail on by with…


Bernie the bubble breathing dragon
The most amazing thing that you have ever seen
There’s no fire in her throat because she never liked to smoke
She comes to town and everyone gets clean
The most amazing thing you’ve ever seen
OH! Bernie the bubble breather
Oh, you just got to see her
Bernie the bubble breathing dragon

Goodnight Sun

Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun
Don’t pretend the day’s not fading from your eyes

Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun
You can shine again tomorrow when you rise

Mr. Moon is waiting
To tuck you into bed
Beneath a starry blanket
With a bank of cloudy pillows for your head

Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun
Give old Mr. Moon a kiss then he will say

Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun
Now it’s time to dim your light and end the day

Mr. Moon is crooning
A lunar lullaby
He’ll sing you off to dreamland
Lying just beyond the edges of the sky

Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun
Goodnight Sun

Mr. Billy kicks up the heels of every song he plays
All the songs on this CD are energizing and fun. From his fine originals to some classics, Mr. Billy puts a refreshing updated musical sound to the tracks. Very enjoyable for kids and parents who are tired of tired sounding children's music!

Evalyn, 5 years old

It's fun that some of his songs include his family.
This is Mr. Billy's best CD yet! The songs are funny. My favorite is "Rub-a-Dub." My second favorite would be "I Heard Said the Bird." I really like it that it includes his whole family. It's a really funny CD. I love it!

Jim Anger

Batteries Not Included: Loaded With Energetic Songs!
Batteries Not Included is a great mix, from a bubble breathing dragon with a great heart to a blusey train,
Cuga-Chuga Chooing down the tracks! Mister Billy makes even an old traditinal folk song like There Was An Old lady Who Swallowed A Fly just rock!

Liz Hannan

Easy and fun with multiple uses
I am enjoying Mr. Bill's new Cd, Batteries Not Included amd excited about all the various ways I can use his songs. I teach 16 music classes each week to Montessori pre-schoolers and will be making 2 part cards for many of his songs. There is no end to the educational value and fun we will have with this new collection

Cathi

This is Mr. Billy's BEST CD
We have every Mr. Billy CD at our daycare center. All the children love it, songs like "Clap Your Hands" go over with the little guys and the "Big Kids" (school agers 5-10) love it too. This is a must have for preschool teachers, librarians, parents and kids that like to have fun. Don't get me wrong, we love all his electric Rock and Roll stuff too, but there is something special about this one.

Pam Donkin

A fun and energetic CD for families
Mr Billy sounds like he loves to make music not only for kids but for adults as well. His expert guitar playing and energetic style make this a really fun CD for all!

Sue Schnitzer

Acoustic YMCA - how fun!!!
Why weren't there CDs like this when my kids were younger? We listened to rock and roll, but nothing like this - acoustic rock and roll specifically for kids! Great music, fun to listen to. Great birthday gift for toddlers and preschoolers.

Janet Sirett

I really like this CD, it's got a sound that I (an adult) can appreciate and lyr
I love this new trend in Children's music that realizes that Children like good music, be it blues or rock or whatever. This CD is a great example of this philosophy, it would be a diservice to call it good children's music, because it's good music in general. If you're looking for a CD you can listen to with your kids and really enjoy this is probably what you are looking for.

Tommy Paxton

Batteries Not Included delivers high powered fun
The kids that I teach from preschool thru second grade love songs with a rock'n'roll heart. I knew they would love this collection, and I was right - they do!

Denise Mitkus/ Peanut Butter Jellyfish

Fun! Brilliant! Rockin'! First grade friendly
Fun! Brilliant! Rockin'! Mr. Billy has outdone himself!! I can't wait to share this great CD with my first grade class! We'll really get a "charge" out of "Batteries Not Included."
