Biography

Ralph and Ralph are Ralph Legnini, Ralph Carney, Abba Roland and Kt Legnini - one of us is small, one of us is tall, two of us are girls!
Ralph & Ralph did the music for the acclaimed HBO kids' TV show Encyclopedia, which was produced by the folks at Sesame Street. They also collaborated on the pilot for a new Little Rascals TV show and other kids' music projects. They were in the band Tin Huey together, and while Big Ralph was Tom Waits' horn player and musical director, Little Ralph worked in the studio for producers Nile Rodgers and Todd Rundgren. Their most recent collaboration is this very musical, funny and thoughtful CD for kids. Abba Roland (a/k/a Abba Rage) is a singer / songwriter who did what David Bowie deemed the best cover version of one of his songs – Starman. Kt Legnini (a/k/a Katie Taylor) is an artist, singer & performer from the 80's NYC cult band Konk, and later Volti & Dynamojo.
Inspired by their children they decided to make an album of kid's music for all ages.

Ralph & Ralph & Abba & Kt like to sing about things kids and parents are feeling and thinking about - and they do it in a big fun musical way!
Stuff like how it feels being dragged around all day while mom is shopping for shoes!
Or how wonderful it feels to hear how much daddy loves you!
Are you feelin' blobby?
Do Opposites attract? And what does that mean?
Hey, what does your kid think when you cook spaghetti in the same pot he saw his sister throw up in last week? Yuk!
And is mom often the one who falls asleep while she sings the nighttime lullaby? Probably!
Ralph & Ralph wrap all these words up in lots of yummy ear candy for you and your kids!

Mini Reviews:
“A fab and delicious frolic to funtown for music loving kids and their moms and dads – this cradle full of quirky and confectious melodies will rock you!”
- Kate Pierson – B52's

“I'm so jealous – now I want to make music for kids! This takes me back to happier times working in PeeWee's Playhouse. The Ralphs have struck a nerve... funnybone, I think.” - Todd Rundgren

Lyrics

Ralph & Ralph's Song

Written By: Ralph Legnini

This is Ralph's song
I'll sing it to you
I love to play this guitar
It's the best thing I do

This is Ralph's song
I got one thing to say
When I play saxophone
I feel good all day

It's so much more better
Than a video game
You just pick out a tune
And you give it a name

Get someone to listen
To what you have to say
It can change their whole world
Or at least change their day

This is Ralph & Ralph's song
We got one thing to say
When we play music together like this
We feel good right away

A record costs money
But a song is for free
Just remember the tune
And sing it back to me

This is Ralph & Ralph's song
To drive away all those blues
We think that music sounds better than noise
How 'bout you?

We think that music sounds better than noise
How 'bout you?

Feelin' Blobby

Written By: Ralph Legnini

The world's designed for people who are basically the same
Lots of faces, lots of names
Lots of shapes and lots of brains

But today your world seems different
And you don't want to play
Like a frog you hop away
To a secret sobby hideaway, oh oh

Feelin' blobby
Makin' the
Whole world wobbly
Wonderin' if
We still love you -
Probably!
Feelin' blobby

Afraid to speak your mind when there's confusion overdrive
All your words just run away
When you're feelin' blobby
You're world gets wobbly

It's so hard to be happy
Under skies that stay so gray
You wake up another day
And you're feelin' even twice as blobby, oh!

Feelin' blobby
Makin' the
Whole world wobbly
Wonderin' if
We still love you -
Probably!
Feelin' blobby

Seems like a perfect world
With perfect boys and perfect girls
But there's one secret we all share
Sometimes we all feel blobby
In a world that's wobbly, oh!

Feelin' blobby
Makin' the
Whole world wobbly
Wonderin' if
We still love you -
Probably!
Feelin' blobby
Feelin' blobby

Feelin' blobby
I'm walkin' around and I'm feelin' soggy
I wish you could help my world from being so wobbly
Feelin' feelin' feelin' blobby blobby blobby blobbeeeeeee!
Feelin' blobby
Makin' the
Whole world wobbly
Wonderin' if
We still love you -
Probably!
Feelin' blobby!

The World Spins Right

Written By: Ralph Legnini

Once in a while
Oh once in a while I got to
Stop workin' like a busy bee

Once in a while
Oh once in a while you got to
Stop playin' and be with me

Let me give it to you
I will give it to you
Gonna give you some of that Mommy love

Will you give some to me
Will you give some to me?
Will you give me some love, love
And a squeeze so tight
Until the whole world spins right

Once in a while
Oh once in a while
A dog swims underwater
A fish runs from the sea

Once in a while
Oh once in a while
Everything gets crazy like a cartoon on tv

Then I'll give it to you
Gonna give it to you
Let me give you some of my Mommy love

Will you give some to me
Will you give some to me?
Will you give me some love, love
And a squeeze so tight
Until the whole world spins right

I will give it to you
I will give it to you
I will give you some of that Mommy love

Will you give some to me
Will you give some to me?
Will you give me some love, love
And a squeeze so tight
Until the whole world spins right
Until the sky shines so bright
Until your not scared at night
Until the whole world spins right

Opposites

Written By: Ralph Legnini

Well the opposite of a good time is a bummer
The opposite of your Daddy is your Mother
The opposite of french fries is tofu
And the opposite of me is you!

Well the opposite of your head is your bottom
The opposite of Grandpa is something modern
The opposite of a chocolate shake is a cup of tea
The opposite of you is me!

Sometimes opposites attract
That means come together
And opposites can interact
To make each other better

Oh the opposite of work is play
And the opposite of "How are you?" is just, "Hey!"
The opposite of school is a baseball game
And the opposite of opposite is....the same!

Sometimes opposites attract
That means come together
And opposites can interact
To make each other better

Oh the opposite of me is you
Yeah, well the opposite of me is, you too!
Well the opposite of you is, still me
There's never been two opposites, like we

You mean us?
That doesn't rhyme!
Oh rhyme shmime!

Even the opposite of the opposite of you, is me
Yeah, well the opposite of the opposite of me, is you!
Well, the opposite of the opposite of the opposite of you, is still me!
Well, the opposite of the opposite of the opposite of the opposite of me is still you!

Yeah, well I know you are but what am I?
Yeah, I know I am but what are you!
It's "Mr. Opposite" to you, buddy!
It's "King Opposite" to you!
It's "Your Highness Opposite" to you!
I'm telling Mom!
"Mom, Little Ralph's been buggin' me again!"
