Lyrics

Magic Wagon Ride

Written By: Melissa

Chocolate and lollypops falling from the trees
Skating down rainbows just as fast as can be
You can jump up and down on the top of the clouds
You can fly around in circles and sing so loud
That’s the kind of place I want to be
On this magic wagon ride, come along with me

You can climb up the flowers and swing from the pedals
And run on the top of the trees
You can slide down the side of an ice cream cone
Get a ride from a bumblebee
That’s the kind of place I want to be
On this magic wagon ride, come along with me

You can sing you can dance
Find yourself in a trance of constant wonderland
And when you close your eyes
You’re in for a surprise cause the day will get brighter
The sky will be bluer and the grass with be greener
The flowers will grow up to the sky
The snowmen will dance if you give them a chance
On this magic wagon ride, come along with me

That’s the kind of place I want to be
On this magic wagon ride, come along with me.

The Seahorse Song

Written By: Melissa and Beau

Once upon a time in the deep blue ocean
There were five seahorses making lots of commotion
One seahorse went out the door, then there were only 4

chorus
There were four seahorses swimming in the sea
Four seahorses happy as can be

One seahorse fell and bumped his knee, then there were only three

chorus

One seahorse was feeling kind of blue, then there were only two
chorus

One seahorse swam towards the sun, then there was only one

Once upon a time in the deep blue ocean
There was one seahorse making no commotion
He was sad and lonely and looking for his friends
But then he found them and he’s happy again

Now all the seahorses swimming in the sea
Now all the seahorses are happy as can be

4 Nickels and a Dime

Written By: Melissa

Well my mamma gave me 4 nickels and a dime
Sent me to the store to buy some pie
Got on my bike and went for a ride
And I ride, ride, ride

Now my daddy gave me 4 pennies and a dime
Sent me outside watch the birds fly by
Got on my bike and went for a ride
And I ride, ride, ride

chorus
Ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride
Ride, ride, ride, ride, ride, ride

It’s a quarter past three and I’m feeling free
The cows go moo whatcha gonna do?
Put my feet on the ground and I listen to the sound
And then I wait, and then I ride, ride, ride

chorus

Well my sister gave 4 quarters and a dime
Sent me to school to sing this rhyme
Got on my bike and went for a ride
And I ride, ride, ride

Now my grandma gave me 4 dollars and a dime
Sent me to the party to have a good time
Got on my bike and went for a ride
And I ride, ride, ride

chorus

It’s a half past nine and I’m feeling fine
The cows go moo, whatcha gonna do
I put my feet on the ground and I listen to the sound
And then I wait, and I wait, and then I ride, ride, ride

chorus
