BandPop

We are an original rock and roll band for the whole family. We play songs with lyrics that will appeal to kids with music that appeals to all ages. Upbeat music of all styles and songs that will get everyone dancing.

Biography

We started the band to create music for families. We write and perform songs that kids can really enjoy and grasp but with music that isn't trite or repetitive so the parents that listen can groove to it as well. The four members all play a role. The drummer is the surfer/beach bum and into to groovy laid back music. The piano player is the blues man. The guitarist is a cowboy; and the bass player is the punk rocker. As a result we make an effort to create songs that cover many genres: blues, reggae, rock n roll, golden oldies, country, and sing alongs. At all shows we have outfits to match each persona. At each show there is some level of audience participation, ie dancing the Hokey Pokey, or singing familiar refrains. As evidenced at our live shows, we appeal to young children, their siblings, parents and grandparents.

Lyrics

PB & J

Written By: Matthew Kaplan and Thomas Bleakney

I like the letter A and the letter B
I like the letter D and then E F G
I like Q R S and I like H and K
But my favorite three letters are PB and J

PB and J, PB and J
I always love my lunch when it’s PB and J
I like it in the morning and the nighttime too
Peanut Butter and Jelly just for me and you

Some kids they eat tuna but that ain’t for me
Some kids eat macaroni others eat grilled cheese
All the kids have something different that they bring
But all that I can think about is just one thing

Soup and salad, broccoli or peaches and cream
I don’t like those all other things you know what I mean
If you’re serving all that other stuff I just can’t stay
I gotta go and find myself a PB and J

PB and J, PB and J
I always love my lunch when it’s PB and J
I like it in the morning and the nighttime too
Peanut Butter and Jelly just for me and you

My mom said “that’s enough why don’t you go and play
All you do is eat and eat your PB and J”
Cookies and cakes are good I’ll even drink some tea
But nothing comes between my tasty sandwich and me

Well we’re going out to dinner and you know what I want
Mom says not again not at this restaurant
I pull the waiter over and I ask him this way
Hey buddy – do you think the chef can whip me up a PB and J?

PB and J, PB and J
I always love my lunch when it’s PB and J
I like it in the morning and the nighttime too
Peanut Butter and Jelly just for me and you

PB and J, PB and J
I always love my lunch when it’s PB and J
I like it in the morning and the nighttime too
Peanut Butter and Jelly just for me and you

Clouds

Written By: Tom Bleakney

Clouds

I like to watch the clouds as they roll on by
Sometimes I lay down in the field and stare at the sky
See the patterns moving see the shapes shifting
I like to watch the blue and white… drifting

There’s a cat and a dog and even a mouse
I’m watching them floating over every house
If you want to watch the clouds you know I’m willing
I like to sit and dream… while I’m chilling

Thunder claps and clouds are black it ain’t the same
It’s hard to name the clouds when it’s pouring rain
Staring out the window I guess I have to stay in
I’m just hanging in the house… waiting

There’s not a cloud in the sky I hear people say
After that I hear them say what a beautiful day
I don’t know why they talk that way
There would be clouds in the sky if I had my way

Once I saw a cricket and one time it was a boat
I even saw a castle with a great big moat
One time it was a pirate ship, I think it was sinking
I just stare at the sky… thinking

It looks like I can walk on that one over there
And that one right behind it well it looks like a chair
There’s a bee and a tree and a bear and a pear and a ring and a king
My ‘magination runs wild… while I’m singing

The clouds they never stay they always drift away
I guess that’s why they’re different each and every day
See the patterns moving see the shapes shifting
I like to watch the blue and white… drifting

There’s not a cloud in the sky I hear people say
After that I hear them say what a beautiful day
I don’t know why they talk that way
There would be clouds in the sky if I had my way

7, 8, 9

Written By: Tom Bleakney

7, 8, 9

7, 8, 9 man
Can’t believe my eyes man
Right in front of number 10
He was hanging with a big fat hen
Seemed like a friendly chap
Guess I better watch my back
7, 8, 9 man
I said I can’t believe my eyes man

I used to run with 1 and 2
And went to school with number 6
Number 4 he didn’t have a clue
If he had he would have grabbed some sticks

I said…7, 8, 9 man
can’t believe my eyes man
He must have been a hungry guy
To eat a number up ahead in line
Seemed like a friendly chap
Guess I better watch my back
7, 8, 9 I said
I think he must have lost his head

Count now…
1,2,3 4,5,6 7,8,9 oh what a crime
1,2,3 4,5,6 7,8,9 got to kick him out of line
1,2,3 4,5,6 7,8,9 oh what a crime
1,2,3 4,5,6 7,8,9 got to kick him out of line

(bridge) 7,8,9 man even though the number
Six was right behind him
He did it even though all the numbers could see
Hey at least he didn’t eat the number three

7, 8, 9 man
Can’t believe my eyes man
Right in front of number 10
He was hanging with a big fat hen
Seemed like a friendly chap
Guess I better watch my back
7, 8, 9 man
I said I can’t believe my eyes man

Count now…
1,2,3 4,5,6 7,8,9 oh what a crime
1,2,3 4,5,6 7,8,9 got to kick him out of line
1,2,3 4,5,6 7,8,9 oh what a crime
1,2,3 4,5,6 7,8,9 now he’s gonna do some time
