MOLLY THE MOOSE 



Molly the Moose got loose in New York City 

(The moose is loose!)

Molly the Moose said, “This zoo just will not do!”

She didn’t need antlers, she asked her handlers

To please hand over the keys

Molly asked nicely

When you weight 900 pounds

You don’t have to throw your weight around


Everybody wants to be free

Everybody wants to be free

Everybody wants to be free


Molly the Moose was too big for the subway  (The moose is loose!)

Molly the Moose went marching right down Broadway  (The moose is loose!)

Folks from the press snapped photographs

Policemen yelled, the kids all laughed

Now, a talking moose is a crazy thing

But it’s stranger when they sing

And what did Molly sing?


Everybody wants to be free

Everybody wants to be free

Everybody wants


--to feel the grass between their toes

--to feel the sunshine on their nose

--to taste the rain, to sniff the breeze

--to live their life the way they please

  Everybody wants to be free


The moose is loose!


Molly the Moose was in no great big hurry (The moose is loose!)

But pretty soon she found herself in Jersey  (The moose is loose!)

Now, hitchhiking is no way to travel

Unless you are a giant mammal

Molly caught a ride on a big Mac truck with Manitoba plates

And you could hear her song

All along the interstate


Everybody wants to be free

Everybody wants to be free

Everybody wants

--to feel the grass between their toes

--to feel the sunshine on their nose

--to taste the rain, to sniff the breeze

--to live their life the way they please

   Everybody wants to be free


The moose is loose!

SANDWICH!



There was one slice of bread when another came by
"Now we're two!" the slices cried
When you get two slices of bread
You know what lies ahead:


Sandwich! Sandwich!
You hold it right in your hand which
puts it in your mouth, bite by bite!
Something about it just feels right!
Time to make a plan which…
involves a sandwich!


Well, Bread Slice One said to Bread Slice Two

"I feel so empty, how about you?"
But how they smiled, you should have seen 'em
When a slice of cheese walked right between 'em!


        chorus


Two slice bread, one slice cheese
They say good things come in threes
But the slice of cheese began to sigh,

he said.,"I think we're still a little dry..."


Mayo!  Mayo!

No make a sandwich be so dry!


So they walked up the road, hadn’t gone too far

when they met a big ol’ mayonnaise jar

Spread a little bit on each bread slice

“Ooh, that feels so nice!”


        chorus


Now the classic sandwich we have seen

has two slice bread with stuff in between

But a club sandwich has three

and a Dagwood Sandwich (ask your grand dad)

has up to seventy!


There are so many sandwiches you can eat

so this list is incomplete

baloney, salami, banana, pastrami

grilled cheese, tuna fish, ask your mommy

she can make it here or take it from the deli

to thrill your mouth and fill your belly

and maybe if you’re really, really good…

Peanut butter and jelly!

THERE ONCE WAS A BAGEL… 



There once was a bagel that learned how to fly

It popped from the toaster and into the sky

Well, not quite the sky, more like the air

What was it doing up there?
 
Old Mr. Mace had his face in the paper
Sweet Auntie Rose had her nose in her eggs
And only the children happened to see
A bagel so free


And it flew through the air

with the greatest of ease

Free from gravity, free from cream cheese

And the children all laughed

as it got near the ceiling
What was it feeling?
And why?
Why would a bagel fly?


There once was a bagel that learned how to fly
It popped from the toaster and into the sky
It circled around with a smile on its bagel face
Then it fell onto a plate


Old Mr. Mace looked up from his paper
Sweet Auntie rose looked up from her eggs
And there was a bagel, crispy and brown
Finally come down


But it flew through the air

with the greatest of ease
Free from gravity, free from cream cheese
And the children decided to keep it a secret
Who would believe it?
And why?
Why would a bagel fly?


Why would a bagel fly?

Why?  Why?  Why?

WHO YOU ARE


A dog can't be a duck

No, a dog can't be a duck

He might just swim but he sure can't fly

and his bark won't quack, he can try and try

but a dog can't be a duck

as a duck he's out of luck

but take a good look and it's plain to see

what a fine dog he can be


And you gotta be who you are

You gotta be who you are

It's the best thing you can do

You gotta be you


A fish can't be a fox

No, a fish can't be a fox

She's got no hair and she can't breath air

She was made for the water and she oughta stay there

No, a fish can't be a fox

and she can't be a kid with chicken pox

and she won't be a whale and she won't even wish

'Cause she makes such an excellent fish


chorus


Now, Henry

was a hipster hippo

and he wanted so badly to be cool

be wanted

to be king of the jungle

and not just play all day

in his private swimming pool

So Henry

rolled in some light brown mud

and he found some straw to be his golden mane

and he thought he was a lion

and I guess he was tryin'

cause he walked around roaring

but it got kinda boring

'cause everybody thought he was insane


chorus



A goat can't be a goose

A mouse can't be a moose

A bat can't be a bug

A poodle dog can't even be a pug

and a cat can't be a cow

and I think you know the reason why by now

see, we're all made in our special way

and we're specially made to be A-OK


And you gotta be who you are

You gotta be who you are

It's the one thing you can do

You gotta be you

And it's gonna be hard sometimes

to be so special

And you gotta be brave sometimes

to be so special

and you're so special

yes, you are

You'e a star

That's who you are

That's who you are are
