Box Full of Dreams

Written By: Michael Taylor, Cow Heard Music, ASCAP 2011

Jungle green, and aquamarine
An' vivid tangerine color my dreams
Midnight blue, and goldenrod, you know
Tickle me pink hue
Is there in my dreams too

There are sixty-four colors in a Box Full of Dreams
How I wish that every color could be mine
'Cause with sixty-four colors in a Box Full of Dreams
I could show the world the pictures in my mind...

Crayon box of yellow and green
Filled with sixty-four colors just for me
Mama, please, can I have a box of these?
I'll do anything you please
Look I'm down on my knees

There are sixty-four colors in a Box Full of Dreams
How I wish that every color could be mine
'Cause with sixty-four colors in a Box Full of Dreams
I could show the world the pictures that are here in my mind
I could show the world the pictures that I see in my mind

An' I would love you even more
If you would take me to the store
'Cause it's the only thing I lack
Hey, Mama, there's a sharpener on the back!

There are sixty-four colors in a Box Full of Dreams
How I wish that every color could be mine
'Cause with sixty-four colors in a Box Full of Dreams
I could show the world the pictures that are here in my mind
I could show the world the pictures that I see in my mind

Porcupine Parade

Written By: Michael Taylor, Cow Heard Music, ASCAP 2011

Critters come from miles around
To listen to the swingin' sound
That the porcupines will be layin' down
at the Porcupine Parade

There is nothin' more sublime
Than watchin' marchin' porcupines
Playin' dixieland and steppin' to the time
At the Porcupine Parade

Oh, to hear that big brass sousaphone moan
And to listen while the clarinet
Plays a sweet duet
With the coronet

I wanna hear that beatin' drum
An' the slide trombone an' the banjo strum
And if you like that too, then you've gotta come
To the Porcupine Parade

It'll be a woodland ballyhoo
What a hullabaloo!
Porcupines a'marchin' two by two
Wearin' feathered hats for the big to-do

You've gotta be there in that throng
'Cause if you like good music, you belong
Come on and swing along to the jazzy songs
At the Porcupine Parade
Well, don't you be a square, we wanna see you there
at the Porcupine Parade!

I Love the Ukulele

Written By: Michael Taylor, Cow Heard Music ASCAP 2011

Maybe you know
How some people go
For honkytonk piano
An' it's excitin' for some
to hear the drums
Beatin' with the band
It might be your taste
To hear the bass
Layin' down a line, oh so low
But, as for me
I Love the Ukulele

'Could be you choose
The sound of the blues
Harmonica playin'
And when they hear violin
Some folks begin
Grinnin' ear to ear
And 'cause playin' kazoo
Is easy to do
You like to rooty-toot-ta-toot-toot too
But, as for me
I Love the Ukulele

'Cause it takes me away
When I hear someone play ukulele
To where I wanna be
Where the sand greets the sea in Hawaii
I'm talkin' Waikiki

I see how your thing
Could be a five-string
Banjo player pickin'
And how you might think it's tops
To hear a flat top
Guitar picker too
Oh, how a mandolin fill
Can give you a trill
'Make you sing yodel-odelay-hee-hoo
But, as for me
I Love the Ukulele
But, as for me
I Love the Ukulele

Slowpoke Cowpoke

Written By: Michael Taylor, Cow Heard Music, ASCAP 2011

He's a Slowpoke Cowpoke out on the range
On a tall appaloosa he rides
Drivin' them doggies from break of day
'Til he lays by the campfire at night

Countin' them cattle 'til slumber he finds
For to see there in sweet reverie
The dear little cowgirl he left behind
In El Paso will dance in his dreams

And she'll dance
'Neath the shimmering stars
In the west Texas sky
And she'll dance
There'll be glimmering stars
In her eyes

There's a Slowpoke Cowpoke out on the range
When the cattle drive's done he'll go home
To the dear little cowgirl who waits for the day
When her daddy will no longer roam

And they'll dance
'Neath the shimmering stars
In the west Texas sky
And they'll dance
There'll be glimmering stars
In their eyes

There's a Slowpoke Cowpoke out on the range
When the cattle drive's done he'll go home
To the dear little cowgirl who waits for the day
When her daddy will no longer roam

When the Slowpoke Cowpoke goes home
When the Slowpoke Cowpoke goes home

I'm Feelin' Good About Myself

Written By: Michael Taylor, Cow Heard Music ASCAP 2011

Look at me, I'm countin' 1-2-3
And can you see I know my A-C-Cs
I put my toys back on the shelf
I make my bed all by myself
These things make me happy
(Feelin' like the world is mine)
I'm gettin' bigger all the time

I'm Feelin' Good About Myself
I am happy and everything feels fine
(Happy all the time)
I'm Feelin' Good About Myself
I am happy because I know that I'm
Gettin' bigger all the time

I brush my teeth and comb my hair
I play with friends and I share
These things make me happy
(Feelin' like the world is mine)
I'm gettin' bigger all the time

I'm Feelin' Good About Myself
I am happy and everything feels fine
(Happy all the time)
I'm Feelin' Good About Myself
I am happy because I know that I'm
Gettin' bigger all the time

Gettin' stronger, gettin' taller
Gettin' smarter every day
Things that once seemed big seem smaller
So much smaller, so I say...

I'm Feelin' Good About Myself
I am happy and everything feels fine
(Happy all the time)
I'm Feelin' Good About Myself
I am happy because I know that I'm
Gettin' bigger all the time
