Lyrics

Happy Pants

Written By: Jeff Eisenberg

Put on your happy pants
Put on yout happy pants
In your happy pants, you'll laugh awhile
When you wear those happy pants
You'll want to sing and dance
In your happy pants, you'll smile

Happy pants
Happy pants
Happy pants

Put on your happy pants
Put on your happy pants
In your happy pants, you'll laugh awhile
When you wear those happy pants
You'll want to sing and dance
In your happy pants, you'll smile

When you feel unhappy
And nothing's going right
You have all the power to change it
You can take the cloudy
And make it sunny bright
It's easy; this is all you need to do

Put on your happy pants
Put on your happy pants
In your happy pants, you'll laugh awhile
When you wear those happy pants
You'll want to sing and dance
In your happy pants, you'll smile

When you're disappointed
'Cause things don't go your way
It doesn't mean you have to keep your head down
There's a simple recipe
To take your blues away
It's all you ever really need to do

Put on your happy pants
Put on your happy pants
In your happy pants, you'll laugh awhile
When you wear those happy pants
You'll want to sing and dance
In your happy pants, you'll smile

There are times you trip-up
Falter, make mistakes
And, you don't feel very good about it
But, it's OK to slip-up
You still have what it takes
So, don't get down; just turn that frown around

Put on your happy pants
Put on your happy pants
In your happy pants, you'll laugh awhile
When you wear those happy pants
You'll want to sing and dance
In your happy pants, you'll smile
In your happy pants, you'll smile
In your happy pants, you'll smile

Move, Baby, Move

Written By: Jeff Eisenberg

I want to stretch, squirm and shake
Twist and turn, until I ache
I want to stretch, squirm and shake
Bend, but, never break

I want to jump, skip and hop
Spin around, just like a top
I want to jump, skip and hop
And, never ever stop

I want to move and groove and rock and roll
Then, fall down and lose control
I want to dance and prance and leap about
Spread my arms and shout out loud

I want to wiggle, jiggle and sway
Swing my hips all over the place
I want to wiggle jiggle and sway
I love to play this way

I want to move and groove, and, rock and roll
Then, fall down and lose control
I want to dance and prance, and, leap about
Spread my arms and shout out loud

I want to move, baby, move
I want to move, baby, move
I want to move, baby, move
Movin' is so much fun

I want to move, baby, move
Move, baby, move
I want to move, baby, move
Movin' is, movin' is
Movin' is so much fun, yeah
Movin' is, movin' is
Movin' is so much fun, yeah

Just Read

Written By: Jeff Eisenberg

Open your minds, kids of all ages
The world is yours to explore
There's so much to find; it's all on the pages
You really don't need much more

It's all in that book of yours
Just fingertips away
Whatever facts you want to know
Any time of day
Just read
Just Read

Pictures and words tell a good story
About people, places and things
So, take the time; it'll never be boring
Learning is what a book brings

Learn about a scientist
Or, a movie star
Travel north to Canada
By book it's never far
Just Read
Just Read

So, get up and go to the library
Or, to the local bookstore
You could become so literary
Intelligent right to the core

You can pick a storybook
Or, biography
Once you try it you'll be hooked
Try it and you'll see
Just read; pick up a book
Just read; pick up a book
Just read; pick up a book
Just read
