If Mr. Rogers was influenced by Nirvana and Parliament Funkadelic, then this is what he would sound like.

Biography

I've been writing and recording songs since I was 16, I'm 28 now. When I was 24, Boyds Mills Press published my children's book "Spaghetti Eddie." Since then I have done author visits throughout New England, reading my book and performing my children's songs. It's been amazing. Kids are the best audience!

My music differs from other children's music because it draws influence from other performers not associated with kids music. I have been very inspired by the creativity and energy of groups such as Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys and Syd Barrett Pink Floyd, to name a few. I'm a pretty laid back guy, but when I perform, this amazing energy comes out of me and it's been very well received. Children and parents really enjoy what I do.

I combine elements of rock and old school rap into children's songs that are very playful, possitive, and fun. My songs are very catchy, colorful, and guaranteed to make any child or adult smile.

Basically I want to be a rock star for kids. I know I have the creativity and personality to make that a reality.

Lyrics

So Many Books

Written By: Ryan SanAngelo

Books, books, so many books
So many books to read yeah
Books, books, so many books
Open them up and take a look

B-O-O-K-S reading books is the best
There's so much to learn, so much to know
And so many travels where you can go
With people, places, and so many things
Motes and castles, queens and kings
Monkeys, cats, camels, and giraffes
Stories so funny, you have to laugh
Go ha, ha, a-ha, he, he
Or is your story a mystery
With action, intruige and a twist
Read it with your brother or your sis

Books, books, so many books
So many books to read yeah
Books, books, so many books
Open them up and take a look

I read to my dad, I read to my mama
I read to my goldfish and my iguana
I read to my grandma and my gramps
African tales and baseball champs
I read fiction, non-fiction too
Tommy dePaola and Dr. Seuss
Sometimes humor, sometimes scarry
There's so many books at your library
To read, read, because reading is so great
There's so much to read I just can't wait
I'll grab any book off the bookshelf
I'll read it with my friends or even by myself

Books, books, so many books
So many books to read yeah
Books, books, so many books
Open them up and take a look

B-O-O-K-S reading books is the best!

Fruit, Fruit, Fruit

I like apples

Fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit!

I like oranges

Fresh pineapple is amazing

Fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit!

I am a healthy kid
A healthy kid oh yeah

Because I eat fruit

Too much junk food makes me sleepy
I eat plums and peaches too
Fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit, fruit!

I am a healthy kid
A healthy kid oh yeah
I am a healthy kid
Because I eat fruit
I eat fruit yeah!

School Is Cool

Written By: Ryan SanAngelo

School, school , school is cool
School, school, I love school
Oh yeah

School is cool, school’s the best
I do so well I ace my test
I do my homework every night
So I can learn a lot and I can stay bright

We learn names and we learn dates
I love my teacher she’s so great
Got my pencils and my pens
And the whole class is filled with my friends

I want to know everything I can know
There’s so much to know all around the globe
About history, science and dinosaurs
Math, language and so much more

Math, math, I can do math
I can add and I can subtract
Spell, spell, I can spell
Any word I spell so well

Read, read, I can read
Books, papers, and magazines
Write, write, I can write
Poems and stories that excite

I want to know everything I can know
There’s so much to know all around the globe
About history, science and dinosaurs
Math, language and so much more

School, school , school is cool
School, school, I love school
Oh yeah
