Music by Evan Lurie
Lyrics by McPaul Smith


A Pirate says Arrr!
(Uniqua and Austin)

U: If you wanna be a pirate, get up on your feet
You can’t be a pirate if you’re sitting in your seat

Swing your arms tough, and stand kind of low
And make this noise wherever you go

Arrr! Arrr! Arrr!
A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says “Arrr!”
It might seem strange, just a bit bizarre

But they know you’re a pirate when they here you say “Arrr!”
A: Arrr! Arrr! Arrr! A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says “Arrr!”
You wear a spare part, a bandana and a scar
Both- And they know you’re a pirate when they hear you say “Arrr!”
U: The Jolly Roger is the pirate flag: a skull and some bones on a big black rag
We’ll fly it on our ship, high above the sails, and we’ll search for treasure and be tough as nails!
Both: Arrr! Arrr! Arrr! A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says “Arrr!”
If you think we’re noisy, you’re right, we are
‘Cause they know you’re a pirate when they hear you say “Arrr!”

A Pirate says Arrr! [Part II]
(Pablo and Tyrone)

P: If you wanna be a pirate, sail the ocean blue
You go and steal some treasure, 'cause that’s what pirate do
T: We laugh a pirate laugh, dance a pirate dance
We wear a puffy shirt and some baggy pants
Both- Arrr! Arrr! Arrr! A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says “Arrr!”
We sail a pirate ship, we don’t drive a car
And they know you’re a pirate when they hear you say “Arrr!”
T: “Arrr!” mean yes, and “Arrr!” mean no,
P: And “Arrr!” means come on mates, let’s go!
T: Say “Arrr!” when you’re happy
P: And “Arrr!” when you’re smelly
T: And “Arrr!” when you’re having your pirate toast and jelly
Both: Arrr! Arrr! Arrr! A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says “Arrr!”
If you think we’re tough, you’re right, we are
‘Cause they know you’re a pirate when they hear you say “Arrr!”

Scurvy Pirate (all 4) (tune: "What do you do with a drunken sailor?")

P: What do you do with a scurvy pirate?
T: Raid their ship and then hot-wire it

U: What do you do with a scurvy pirate?

U & A: What do you do with a scurvy pirate? Make them walk the plank!
T: We’ll raid their scurvy pirate ship and make them walk the plank!
P: Grab up all their treasure

Falling off a Log (all 4)

U
: It’s my turn, I’m going first, gonna walk across in a single burst
Gotta keep my balance lookin’ straight ahead 'cause if I look down, I’ll get woozy instead
Quick and steady like a little tree frog,'cause there’s nothing as easy as falling off a log
All
: Nothing as easy as falling off a log!
T
: It’s my turn, I’m going now, Captain Tyrone will show you all how
Gotta keep my balance steady as I go...
A
: ‘Cause you don’t want to plop in the mud below
I’m brave Captain Austin, not a scurvy dog and there’s nothing as easy as falling off a log
All
: Nothing as easy as falling off a log!
P
: It’s my turn, I’m going last, but I have a peg leg, so I can’t go fast
I’m Captain Pablo, and even though I hobble, I got to keep my balance and try not to wobble
I’m almost across, it’s a long hard slog, 'cause there’s nothing as easy as falling off a...

Music by Doug Wieselman
Lyrics by McPaul Smith


Yeti Stomp
(Pablo solo)

Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! I’m stomping that yeti stomp!
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! I’m stomping that yeti stomp!
Stomp, stomp, stomp, I’m a yeti, hear my yeti yell, Yeti-yeti-yeti!
Stomp, stomp, stomp, I’m a yeti, smell my yeti smell
Stomp, stomp, stomp, I’m hairy, from my head to my yeti toes
I’ll make a sound that’s a little bit scary when I blow my yeti nose
I’m big, I’m furry, and in no hurry, I like raisins and spaghetti
Stomp, stomp, stomp, get ready, stomp, stomp, stomp, I’m a yeti!
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! I’m stomping that yeti stomp!
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! I’m stomping that yeti stomp!
Stomp, stomp, stomp, I’m the yeti and I’m stomp, stomp, stomping forth
On a long cold hike, to my favorite place, to my igloo in the frozen north
I’m gonna stomp up there with my messy hair, kinda dirty and a little bit sweaty
Stomp, stomp, stomp, get ready, stomp, stomp, stomp, I’m a yeti!
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! I’m stomping that yeti stomp!
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp! I’m stomping that yeti STOMP!

I’m in charge of it all, and I like it that way ‘cause everyone has to do what I say
I’m Queen Tasha, and I rule the whole backyard
I say “Do this” they say “Yes, your majesty”

“Bring me that” they say “Yes, your majesty”
That’s why I sing this song,‘cause queens are never wrong!

Queens are Never Wrong [Duet] (Tasha and Uniqua)

U
: I’m Uniqua and I wanna be a knight, I’ll deliver that message, if it takes all night!
I’ll go on a journey and won’t ever stop, ‘cause I’ll be a knight, with a feather on top
I’m Uniqua, and I’m gonna be a knight, I’ll be brave!
T

A Message, A Message [Solo] (Uniqua) (Tune: "A Tisket, A Tasket")

A message, a message, a very important message
The queen has sent me out to bring this secret message to the king
A message, a message, I’ll bring the king a message
And he’ll be so impressed with me that soon a brave pink knight I’ll be
A pink knight with a feather
, a fancy helmet feather
That’s what I’ll wear when I’m a knight, all brave and smart and strong, all right!
It’s a misty, spooky forest, the path is dark and long
But I don’t care, ‘cause I don’t scare, I’m brave and smart and strong!
A message, a message, a very important message
Into the misty forest now to bring the king a message

A Message, A Message [Duet]
(Uniqua and Tyrone) (Tune: "A Tisket, A Tasket")
U
: A message, a message, a very important message
We made it through the misty woods with a very important message
Both- A message, a message, we’ll bring the king a message
T
: I bet he’ll make a knight of you
U
: And maybe he’ll make you one, too (both hum to tune of song)

A Message, A Message [Trio] (Uniqua, Tyrone and Pablo) (Tune: "A Tisket, A Tasket")
All
: A message, a message, we’ll bring the king a message
U

All
: A message, a message, a very important message
We’re on our way to give the king a very important message

P.U.! (Uniqua, Tyrone and Pablo)

T
: There’s something in the air, and it doesn’t smell so good
I wish I didn’t have a nose, I’d remove it if I could
U
: You’re not kidding, it smells real bad, it’s a really awful smell, the swamp is super stinky...
P
: And I don’t feel so well!
U
: Well, we gotta get this message through and to the other side
There’s only one thing we can do, hold your nose and say “P.U.!”
All
: P.U.! Look out! P.U.! Watch out! P.U.! Better jump! P.U.! Sure is stinky!
U
: Never smelled a smell like this, it’s like a hot dog rotting in the bun
Or like the smell egg salad makes when it’s left out in the blazing sun
T
: Don’t let the bubbles get you, or you’ll be stinky, too
And nobody that you know will wanna be friends with you
All
: P.U.! Look out! P.U.! Watch out! P.U.! Better jump! P.U.! Sure is stinky!
U
: It smells like garbage!
T
: Like dirty diapers!
P
: Like moldy cheese!
U
: Like mushy peas!
T
: Like dirty socks!
P
: On monster feet!
U
: Or 67-day old meat!
All
: P.U.! Look out! P.U.! Watch out! P.U! Better jump! P.U.! Sure is stinky! P.U.!

The Ballad of the Brave Pink Knight (Uniqua, Tyrone, Pablo and Austin)

U
: I traveled really far with this message for you
Queen Tasha said I had to get this message to you
She told me there’d be problems to get in my way
But if I could get past them she said you would say...
P & T
: Hey, Uniqua! You’re brave and smart and strong!
A (speaking)
: I just might, tell me more!
U
: First there was the forest, dark and covered with mist
It looked a little scary, but I have to insist
The moose, he wasn’t scary, in spite of his moan,
And when I got to know him, he was only Tyrone!
P & T
: Hey, Uniqua! That’s really being brave!
A
(speaking): You’re that moose!
U
: Soon we came to Pablo, who was guarding the gate, he said it wouldn’t open...
T
: What a terrible fate!
U
: And then we started pushing with all of our heart
But we couldn’t even budge it, so we had to be smart!
I thought maybe you can’t push it, isn’t there something we haven’t tried
So I went over and gave a pull, and opened it up wide!
P & T
: Hey, Uniqua! You’re really being smart!
A
(speaking): That’s really using your head!
U
: And then there was the swamp, with it’s horrible smell, the bubbles were around us...
P
: I didn’t feel so well!
U
: It’s a good thing I was strong or we might have been lost
We pushed over a boulder and we made it across!
P & T
: That Uniqua is really, really strong!
A
: I’m impressed, Uniqua, you’re brave and smart and strong!
U
: You know I got a message!
P & T
: Clutched tight in her fist...
U
: And I’m brave!
P & T
: Brave, brave in the forest of mist...
U
: I’m smart!
P & T
: She’s smart, got a head on her shoulders...
U
: I’m strong!
P & T
: Strong, strong, she can push over boulders!
Hey, Uniqua! You’re brave and smart and strong!

Where in the World (all 4)
U
: Where in the world do the wormans live? There’s only one way of know-o-ing
Scientifically search and search...till we get to the place we’re going
Hey, Sherman, hey Sherman, could this be the spot?
T
: He says no way, ‘cause it doesn’t have what his home has got
P
: Hey Sherman, hey Sherman, just what things are those?
T
: His Worman friends, his Worman schools and his Worman clothes
All
: Where in the world do the Wormans live? In the heart of the jungle, jungle
Where in the world do the wormans live? In the heart of the jungle’s heart!
P
: Hey Sherman, could this be where Wormans might dwell?
T
: He say uh-uh because it doesn’t have that Worman smell
U
: Hey Sherman, is this where the Wormans hang out?
T
: He says it isn’t and he says he’s getting quite bummed out
U
: Don’t get discouraged, little Sherman pal, don’t get yourself depressed and stressful
We haven’t found your home just yet...but we’ll search...till we’re...successful...

Into the Thick of It (all 4)
All
: Into the thick of it! Into the thick of it! Into the thick of it!
A
: Ugh!
U
: We’re tramping through the bush, on and on we push
T
: Into the thick of it
P
: But we can’t see where we’re going
U
: We’ve made a stellar start to find the jungle’s heart
T
: But all we’ll find is nothing
P
: If we can’t see where we’re going...
All
: Into the thick of it! Into the thick of it! Into the thick of it!
P
: But we can’t see where we’re going...
U
: Into the thick of it! Into the thick of it! Into the thick of it!
T, P & A
: But we can’t see where we’re going...
A
: Ugh!
U
: The jungle’s kind of tricky, the path is never straight
T
: And sometimes there’s no path at all, which makes it hard to navigate
A
: Ugh!
U
: Although the jungle’s thick, we’re moving through it quick
P
: But that won’t do us any good if we’re going around in circles
All
: Into the thick of it! Into the thick of it! Into the thick of it!
P
: We’re going around in circles
A
: Ugh!
U
: These trees look so familiar, we’ve been here once before
T
: You’re right, except it wasn’t once
P
: It was three times...
A
: Or four!
All
: Stuck the thick of it! Stuck the thick of it! Stuck the thick of it! We’ve gone around in circles!

It’s Raining (all 4) (Tune: "I'm Called Little Buttercup")
T
: It’s drizzling and raining and dripping and raining, we’re trying to search and explore
P
: But we can’t ‘cause it’s raining and pouring and raining and teeming and raining some more
U
: Don’t worry, you fellas, I brought my umbrella, and this is specifically why
It’s big, it’s terrific and it’s scientific, proven to keep us all dry
Please stop your complaining, this light little raining will end in a minute, I guess
P
: You call this a little? It’s up to my middle!
T
: Well, what do you call it?
A
: A mess!
T
: The water’s increasing, with no sign of ceasing, I’d rather be home in my camp
P
: Then here, where it’s raining and dripping and raining and soggy and raining and damp
All
: Who knows where we’ll float with a leaf for a boat, in the rainy and watery damp?

: Now Tyrone is gonna try, he’s a limbo kind of guy
Keep those antlers by the floor as you limbo through the door
Bend down low and keep it loose, secret agent limbo moose
He will beat the laser light, he can do the limbo right!
T & U
: Agent Pablo’s going now, Come on, Pablo show us how!
Bend your knees and swing your arms, and don’t set off those alarms
Limbo low and limbo fast, save the limbo best for last
Now we all have past the test, we’re the laser limbo best!

Lyrics by Janice Burgess and McPaul Smith


I Love Being a Princess [Solo]
(Tasha)

The folks in my kingdom work hard every day...then go home to their dark, little huts
Some say a princess should live like her people...but I reply: "What are you, nuts?!"
I love being a princess, I love being a princess,
I love smiling regally, while other people kneel
I love being a princess, I love being a princess,
I wouldn’t trade with anyone, I’ve got a sweet, sweet deal
I wear nice expensive clothes, I sleep on the softest bed
I wear fancy jewelry, there’s a crown upon my head
Everyone in Egypt land must bow and do my bidding,
If they don’t, I’ll kick them out, try it - see if I’m kidding
I love being a princess, I love being a princess, the lap of luxury, that’s where I hang out
I love being a princess, I love being a princess,
A nice arrangement, folks, for me at least – no doubt!

I Love Being a Princess [Quartet] (Tasha, Pablo, Tyrone and Austin)
Ta: I love being a princess...
Boys- She loves being a princess!
Ta
: I love never bothering to open my own door!
I love being a princess...
Boys
: She loves being a princess!
Ta
: And just because I feel like it, I will tell you more...
When I want a bite to eat, my servants come and serve it
P

Ta (speaking)
: Why? Cause I deserve it!
Ty
: We even come to fan her when she wants a gentle breeze
A
: But she never says thank you, and she never...ever says please!
Ta
: I ask for snacks, my servants bring them, I ask for drinks, my servants bring them
P
: If she wants songs, we'll even sing them
Ta- I got the best servants in the kingdom!
If you want to dress like this and wear a shiny crown
If you like how people look when they are bowing down...
If princess life is what you want, your choice is crystal clear,
Go find another country, pal, 'cause I'm the...princess here!
Ta
: I love being a princess...
Boys
: She loves being a princess!
Ta
: I love lounging on my couch and ruling royally!
I love being a princess, I love being a princess
There's just one princess here and I love being me!
Ty
: Great is your fame, O princess...
P
: Long may you reign, O princess...
A
: She's such a PAIN, that princess...
Ta
: I love being me!

For one thing I fell thirsty, or another thing I feel hot
And some folks like to feel that way, but I myself do not!

I'm a Mountie
(Tyrone and Pablo) (Tune: "She'll be Coming 'Round the Mountain")

T
: I'm a Mountie and I'm marching through the snow
I'm a Mountie to the Yukon, I must go
I'm a Mountie of perfection, if something needs protection
Then there's no better protector you could know!
Mountie on duty, Mountie on duty,
I'm a Mountie and I'm marching through the snow!
We are mounties and we're marching through the snow
P: We are Mounties to the Yukon, we must go
Both
: We are Mounties and we're good sports and we like defending snow forts
We are mounties and we're marching through the snow!
Yes, we're Mounties in our Mountie hats and suits
You can tell by our Mountie salutes
Guarding all that needs a watching, for a Mountie there's no stopping
We are Mounties marching in our Mountie boots!

Ski Patrol to the Rescue (Tasha and Uniqua)

Ski patrol is in control, saving people, that's our goal!
Ski patrol is in control, ski patrol to the rescue! Ski patrol to the rescue!
T

Both: We are here and ready to save you!
U: We'll warm you up and keep you safe, if you're cold, we'll kiss your face
Both

Ski patrol is in control, ski patrol to the rescue! Ski patrol to the rescue!
Ski patrol to the rescue!

Snowball Duty (Tyrone and Pablo)
CHORUS
Both
: Snowball duty, guarding a big snowball
Yes, we're on snowball duty, we're Mounties standing tall
Snowball duty, we'll never, ever fall
'Cause we are Mounties on duty, guarding a big snowball!
P
: Big and round and twinkling all aglow, oh great, big, massive ball of snow
You'd make the world's biggest snowcone, but we won't ever, ever leave you alone!
'Cause we're on...(repeat CHORUS)
T
: Mounties always have a Mountie plan, stopping raiders anyway we can
You know a snowball's safe, when it's protected by a Mountie man
'Cause we're on...(repeat CHORUS)
Yes, we are Mounties on duty, guarding a big snowball!

Hope that someone doesn't pout! Hey, we're gonna get you out
You poor, frightened person in the snow!
Ty

P
: A snowball-eating polar bear?
Ty
: Could it be a snowball melter?
P

Ty

But we won't let those nasty raiders bust on through
They think they can break in, but they are mistaken, cause it's time for booby trap number two!
(break)
Boys

Girls

If we don't try and try and try, we'll never know, we're gonna keep on trying

It’s Great to be a Ghost [Solo] (Pablo)
When I make a moanin’ sound, I get the urge to float around
With my arms stretched out, I could float all day
And there’s a word that I heard a ghost once say
It’s boo! I say boo! Oh, boo, boo, boo, yeah boo to you
Not a care in the world you’ll hear me boast
'Cause...boo! It’s great to be a ghost!

It’s Great to be a Ghost [Trio] (Pablo, Uniqua and Tyrone)
P
: First ya make a moanin’ sound, hold your arms out to float around
But that’s not all, ‘cause I’m sure you’ve heard

U
: Aaaahhhh! I say boo!
P
: Aaahhhhh!
U
: Oh, boo, boo, boo!
P
: Yeah, boo to you!
P & U
: Not a care in the world can hear us boast, ‘cause...
U
: Boo!
P
: Ahh!
U
: It’s great to be a ghost!
T
: I’ll try to make that moaning sound and maybe I’ll start to float around
But I’m nervous, ‘cause I’m not so sure about the word that I just heard
U
: It’s boo!
T
: Aaaahhhh! You say boo!
P & U
: Yeah!
T
: Oh, boo, boo, boo!
U

Ty
: Have you shared a midnight snack with the boogieman?
P, Ty, U
: Oooooh!
Ta
: I hear what your saying, but in spite of all that, I say, what’s so scary ‘bout that?
You see I’m not scared of nothing, not anything you do
P
: How ‘bout a ghoulish scream?
U
: Or a ghostly boo?
Ta
: So you think I’m scared of your spooky trap? I say, what’s so scary ‘bout that?
Listen, are you scared of dark shadows that go bump in the night? Do you leave the door open?
Ty
: I’ve got two night lights!
Ta
: Aww, well that’s okay, if you’re a scaredy cat...
Ty
: Hey!
Ta
: I say, what’s so scary ‘bout that?
P, Ty, U
: Well, yes, we’re ghosts and you know it’s true
That our plan all along was to try to scare you
Cause we’re real spooky and scarin’s what we do! So that’s what’s scary ‘bout that!
Ta
: What’s so scary?
P, Ty, U
: That’s what’s scary!
All
: That’s so scary ‘bout that!

Hide-and-Go Boo (all 4)
Ta
: Now I’ve counted one to ten, I’ll let those ghosts scare me again
But I’m not scared of what ghosts do, now we’re playing hide-and-go boo!
P
: Now we’re playing hide-and-go boo, I’m a ghost and yes, it’s true!
I’ve found a place to hide-and-go boo!
Look at me, I’m in a painting, when she see me, she’ll be fainting
Shaking and quaking and shivering too, now we’re playing hide-and-go boo!
Ta
: Now we’re playing hide-and-go boo!
U
: Now we’re playing hide-and-go boo, I’m a ghost and yes, it’s true!
I’ve found a place to hide-and-go boo!
She’ll be spooked, yeah, I’m ho-pin’, see this book? Well, now it’s float-in’,
I’m a ghost you see right through, now we’re playing hide-and-go boo!
Ta
: Now we’re playing hide-and-go boo!
Ty
: Now they’re playing hide-and-go boo, I’m not sure just what to do
Now I’m playing hide-and-go boo
I’m not so scared, just kinda frightened, I got moose-bumps and my throat’s all tightened,
I’m just a little ghost, I’m scared, it’s true, to be playing hide-and-go boo
Ta
: Now we’re playing hide-and-go boo!

When I’m Booin’ (Tyrone solo) (Tune: "When You're Smiling")
I’m decidin' a place to hide in, then jump out and say boo
Wanna be ghostly, but I’m mostly...A scaredy moose, it’s true
All of my ghost friends, they’re all scary and tough, but I’m nervous and not spooky enough
‘Cause when I’m booin’...oh when I’m booin'...the other ghosts all laugh at me!
(dance break)
When I’m booin’...don’t know what I’m doin’...the other ghosts all laugh at me!
(additional lyrics not included in actual episode)
When you’re booin’, when you’re booin’, you’re supposed to cause real fright
But when I do it folks see right through it, I just can’t do it right
Folks should freak out when they see a real ghost, but I’m harmless as a piece of cold toast
When I’m booin’...oh when I’m booin’...the other ghosts all laugh at me!
When I’m booin’...don’t know what I’m doin’...the other ghosts all laugh at me!

The Mermaid Song (Tasha solo) (Tune: "The Yellow Rose of Texas")
Oh you probably think that mermaids are lovely, nice and sweet
We hang out in the water with tails instead of feet
Well yes, you’re right, I’m cute and nice, but when the sea gets rough
I’m not only beautiful, I’m extra, extra, tough! Hmmmmmmm...
I’m faster than a dolphin, I’m stronger than a whale
I can stop a Viking ship with one swish of my tail
Those Vikings look so stylish with helmets, vests and stuff
But I’m even more beautiful and extra, extra, tough! Hmmmmmmm...
I’ll trap those funky Vikings inside my mermaid lair
I’ll make them sing me Viking songs and probably keep them there
They might me great explorers, but that won’t be enough
‘Cause I’m not only beautiful, I’m extra, extra tough!
Yes, I’m not only beautiful...I’m extra, extra tough!

P
: Now, I like sandy beaches, I like sandcastles too
But with all this sand in front of me, I don’t know what to do

This mound of sand is out of hand, we’ve got to trudge, trudge, trudge!
Trudge, trudge, trudge, trudge, trudge, trudge
Trudge, trudge, trudge! We can’t budge, budge, budge!
Being stuck in this sandy muck is like being stuck in fudge!
T

But with every step we seem to get more sand in our shoes and socks
Both
: Trudge, trudge, trudge! We can’t budge, budge, budge!
Stuck like a duck in a pond of muck, we gotta trudge, trudge, trudge!

Lyrics by Janice Burgess and McPaul Smith

Surf’s Up (Pablo solo)
Everybody shout ho daddy, ho daddy, ho daddy! Surf’s up! Surf's up! Ho daddy!
You get your board in the water and flop down on your belly
With the salt water spraying and the seaweed kinda smelly
You paddle out to where the breakers are breakin'
You get up fast, start movin’ and shakin’
Your ride that curl, you ride it loose and fast
You stay up on your feet for as long as you can last
And everybody shouts ho daddy, ho daddy, ho daddy! Surf’s up! Surf’s up! Ho daddy!
Everybody shouts ho daddy, ho daddy, ho daddy! Surf’s up! Surf’s up! Ho daddy!

Crusin’ the Dunes [Solo] (Pablo)
I got my board on top and my seatbelt’s on, vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes
Look once, I’m here, look twice, I’m gone, vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes
You can’t catch me when I’m goin’ flat out, 'cuz that’s what a dune buggy’s all about
Vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes! Vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes!
Mornings and evening and afternoons
Vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes! Tearing up the sand and turning up the tunes
That’s what I do when I’m crusin’ the dunes!
My big, fat tires are kickin’ up sand, vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes
Gotta find the best wave in the entire land, vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes
I’m looking for some palm trees, big and tall, lookin’ for a tiki, lookin’ for it all
Vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes! Vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes!
Mornings and evening and afternoons
Vroom, vroom, crusin’ the dunes! Tearing up the sand and turning up the tunes
That’s what I do when I’m crusin’ the dunes! Crusin’ the dunes! Crusin’ the dunes!

Castaways (Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua)
All
: Castaways, we are castaways, ahoy there, ahoy, we are castaways
We’re stuck where we are with no house, no car, castaways, ahoy, we are castaways
U
: We were out at sea on a sailing ship, the rain began to rain and the wind began to whip
P
: We felt the ship tip, it was going down, so we launched our lifeboat so we wouldn’t drown
All
: Castaways, we are castaways, ahoy there, ahoy, we are castaways, on an island at sea
U
: Just me...

P
: And me!
All

Castaways [Reprise] (Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua)
T

P
: On a lovely little island where it’s just us three
U
: And the sun and the sand and the sky and the sea
All
: Now we’re castaways, we are castaways, ahoy there, ahoy, we are castaways
Not a cup or a dish, eating seaweed and fish, castaways, ahoy, we are castaways
Castaways, we are castaways, ahoy there, ahoy, we are castaways on an island at sea
U
: Just me...
T
: Me...
P
: And me!
All
: Castaways ahoy, we are castaways

Shy Guy (Austin solo)
I’m shy, so shy, I’m shy and I don’t know why
I’m shy, so shy, guess you can say I’m just a shy guy
I wish that I could walk right up and say hi,
Why can’t I try? I’ll tell you why, ‘cause I’m a shy guy
When I see a stranger, I just want to hide
I get a nervous, funny feeling way down deep inside
It’s like riding a speedy, roller coaster ride
Or floating on a floatie in the middle of high tide
I’m shy, so shy, I’m shy and I don’t know why
I’m shy, so shy, what can I say? I’m just a shy guy
What can I say? I’m just a shy guy
What can I say? I’m just a shy guy

Hut by the Sea (Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua) (Tune: “By the Beautiful Sea”)
P

T
: That’s the building we’re building laboriously
U
: Out of stones and boards and weeds, vines and palm tree leaves
P
: And the things we found just lying around
We’re building by hand, cause we don’t have a tool
T
: We are sweaty already, but soon we’ll be cool! Lounging inside...
U
: Snug as a mouse here inside our little beach house
All
: By the beautiful sea!
U
: It’s a one-of-a-kind, it’s a find, it’s unique
T
: Build it right, build it tight, so the roof doesn’t leak
P
: When the rain comes falling down, we won’t even frown
U
: We’ll just sit inside and laugh at the weather, castaway house, it’s our castaway hut
T
: Bumpy floors, shaky doors and the windows won’t shut
P
: But we don’t care, we like sea air
U
: Where we kick back here in our sweet shack
All
: By the beautiful sea!

Who’s There? (Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua)
CHORUS
All
: Who’s there? Who’s there? Who’s over there? Who, who, who? (Repeat)
U
: If we follow the string we’ll find who’s there helping us out with everything
T
: The vines and the leaves, the rocks and the wood
P
: Someone’s been hanging in our neighborhood
(repeat CHORUS)
U
: I see some footprints...
P
: Going over the sand
T
: Soon we’ll find out who’s...
All
: ...here in our land!
T
: The coconuts and rocks...

: The big ball of string...
U
: We’ll finally find out who did everything

Tuba Polka (Tyrone solo)
I love to play the tuba and do the polka dance
Makes me feel so happy in my cowboy polka pants
Do the tuba polka, do the tuba polka
(break)
We're heading west to play a polka party for our friends
All the way to Cheyenne where the dancing never ends
Dance to the worman polka, yip, yip, yip, yip! Dance to the worman polka!
When Sherman's brother gets there, we'll yell "Surprise!" real loud
And all those western Wormans will dance the polka proud
Dance to the worman polka, yip, yip, yip, yip! Dance to the worman polka!

(Got to Love) The Clarinet (Uniqua and Tyrone)
U

U

The clarinet, the clarinet, got to love the clarinet!

Both
: Ugh, ugh, ugh, let’s give that word a plug
When we seek a word to speak, we give three cheers for ugh!
A
: Ugh means: “Look at that bug”
T
: Ugh means: “A bearskin rug”
A
: Ugh can mean “Yuck!”
T
: Ugh can mean “Yum!”
A
: Ugh can mean “Ouch, I got a boo-boo on my thumb!”
T
: Ugh’s a question...
A
: Ugh? And an answer, too
T
: Ugh. It’s just three letters, but it means much more than “moo”
Both
: Ugh, ugh, ugh, let’s give that word a plug
When we seek a word to speak, we give three cheers for ugh!

Ty
: But not very specific
P
: Ugh can mean a zillion things we think is ugh-erific!
P, U, Ty

When we seek a word to speak, we give three cheers for ugh, ugh, ugh, we’re not being smug
When we state a word is great and that word is ugh!

Lyrics by Adam Peltzman and McPaul Smith


Soccer Monster Theme [Solo]
(Pablo)

I am a soccer monster, I love a soccer ball, I’d rather play soccer than do anything at all
You can be the kicker, I will be the blocker, doesn’t really matter, as long as we play soccer!
SOCCER! Yeah, 1, 2, 3, 4! SOCCER! Put the ball on the floor!
SOCCER! Say it one time more! SOCCER! Pass, shoot, score!
Pass, shoot, score! Pass, shoot, score!

The Rules (Tyrone and Uniqua)

T
: We must be sneaky now
U
: I must be sneaky
T
: Especially sneaky now
U
: Especially sneaky now
T
: You can’t have shoes that are squeaky now, lady, you gotta be quiet, too
U
: Quiet, too
T
: Quiet, too...
Rule number one: be quiet; you cannot make a sound
Make sure your feet land softly when they step upon the ground
U
: Okay, I must be quiet, I will not make a sound
But what if I must yell or shriek or howl like a hound?
T
: You mustn’t even make a peep, or else we will be found
Pay attention, lady, cause here’s rule number two
If you see that monster, do not let it play with you
If you play with the monster, lady, you’ll be through
‘Cause whoever plays with the monster will become a monster, too!
U
: If I play with that monster, I’ll be a monster, too
Hey, that might be pretty neat, It might be fun to do
T
: No that won’t be neat! It’s not what you should do!
So if you see that monster, do not let it play with you!
We’ll creep and sneak to peek around till we find that soccer ball...
U
: Soccer ball...
Both- Till we find that soccer ball!

Hide and Seek (all 3) (Tune: "When the Saints Come Marching In")

T
: We’ll hide and seek, we’ll seek and hide
U
: We’ll find a closet, peak inside
T
: There’s nothing here, so lets keep on searching
T & U
: And if the monster comes, we’ll hide!
T
: Yes, we must hide, but that’s not all
U
: We got to seek a soccer ball
T
: So we’ll search every room in this castle
T & U
: Yes, we’ll keep searching while we hide!
T
: The monster might find us, he’ll sneak up behind us
U
: We won’t make a sound as we search all around
T
: Let’s go down the hall now
T & U
: And look for that soccer ball now!
P
: Me seek and hide, me hide and seek, me find you if it takes all week
Me will creep and sneak up behind you, and when I find you we’ll play soccer!
I’ll tell you what I want to seek: I want some friends to play with me
Now I’ll seek you out where you’re hiding, I’ll close my eyes and count to three

Soccer Monster Theme [Duet] (Pablo and Uniqua)

Both
: We are soccer monsters, we have a soccer ball
We’d rather play soccer, than do anything at all
P
: Just come up to my door and knock on the knocker, I come running out...
Both
: And then we can play soccer! SOCCER!
P
: Just watch the ball roll
Both
: SOCCER!
U
: Yeah, it never gets old
Both
: SOCCER!
P
: It’s got heart and soul
Both
: SOCCER! Pass, shoot, score! Pass, shoot, score! Pass, shoot, score!

Gotta Get the Job Done (Tyrone solo)

I oughta get out of here, I’m getting sick of this place
But there’s more to do, I haven’t solved the case
There are two monsters now, before there was just one
If I walk away, the job just won’t be done
I didn’t get the ball that the Soccer Monster robbed
I have to heed the call and finish up the job
I gotta get that job done, I gotta get that job done!
It might not be easy, it’s certainly not fun! But I gotta get it done!
I know it will be hard to get that ball back
But if anyone can do it, I’ve got the knack
I’ll just walk right in there and stop that soccer match and say:
“Give me back that soccer ball, it wasn’t yours to snatch!”
I gotta get that job done, I gotta get that job done!
It might not be easy, it’s certainly not fun! But I gotta get it done!

Soccer Monster Theme [Trio] (Pablo, Uniqua and Tyrone)

All
: SOCCER!
P
: Just watch the ball roll
All
: SOCCER!
U
: Yeah, it never gets old
All
: SOCCER!
T
: It’s got heart and soul
All
: SOCCER! Pass, shoot, goal! Pass, shoot, goal! Pass, shoot, goal!

U
: Well, let’s keep looking and let’s go through the trees of Borneo
All
: Wheeeeeee! Wheeee!
P
: Zip, zip, zip from tree to tree
All
: Wheeeeeee! Wheeee!
U

They don’t have a golden shine

Ta
: I don’t see a golden sheen, they’re just plain old brownish green
U
: We’re zipping fast, we’re searching slow
P
: Through the leaves of Borneo

The Grumpy Emperor's Song (all 5)

A
: A zillion years upon this throne has tightened up my funny bone
You can joke as far as the eye can see, but not one chuckle will you here from me...I’m grumpy!
The rest
: You’re grumpy! You’re frowny and you’re frumpy!
A
: I’m grumpy!
The rest
: You’re grumpy!
A
: And this throne is hard and bumpy!
You can jokey and hokey-pokey, but you won’t get a laugh, okey-dokey?
Ty
: How about this? Is it funny to you?
A
: I’ve seen it before, try something new!
Ta
: Have you ever seen such a funny dance?
A
: That’s not funny, not a chance!

A
: If that’s funny, I’m a Ming vase!

Race Around the World

Music Style: Zydeco
Music by Evan Lurie and Doug Wieselman
Lyrics by Rodney Stringfellow and McPaul Smith


Racing Day [Solo]
(Austin)

Racing day, it’s racing day, racing day, it’s racing daaaay!
It’s not nervous pacing day, today’s the day we race!
I’m ready to race a long, long race, this race goes almost everyplace
It’s fast, it’s long, it’s vast, it’s far, It starts out right here where we are
When the finish line’s unfurled, you will have raced around the world
When I’ve finished this long, long race, I hope, I hope I take first place!
Racing day, it’s racing day racing day, it’s racing
daaaay!
It’s not sausage casing day, today’s the day we race!
Today's the day we race! Today's the day we race!

Racing Day [Quartet] (Pablo, Tyrone, Uniqua and Austin)
All: Racing day, it’s racing day, racing day, it’s racing
daaaay!
It’s not picture tracing day, today’s the day we race!
T: We’ll run somewhere that’s not right here and while we do, the crowd will cheer
U: Through the forest, over the snows, across the ocean and then who knows?
P: Whoever is the first around will get to make that victory sound
A: “Dun-da-daaa!” is what they’ll say at the end of racing day
All: Racing day, it’s racing day, racing day, it’s racing
daaaay!
It’s not puppy chasing day, today’s the day we race!
Today's the day we race! Today's the day we race!

Go, Go, Go! (Pablo, Tyrone, Uniqua and Austin)
P: I’m out in front, I’ve got the speed, I love it when I’m in the lead
I gotta go, go, go, go, go, I gotta go, go, go!
You can’t go fast if you go too slow, so go, go, go, go, go!
T & U: We’re not it front, we’re close behind, but we’ll catch up, just give us time
We gotta go, go, go, go, go, we gotta go, go, go!
You can’t go fast if you go too slow, so go, go, go, go, go!
A: I’m in the back, I’m in the rear, I don’t give up, I never fear
I gotta go, go, go, go, go, I gotta go, go, go!
You can’t go fast if you go too slow, so go, go, go, go, go!

Snow is Cold but I am Cool (Pablo, Tyrone, Uniqua and Austin)
T: If you wanna have fun in the snow, I’m gonna tell you all that you need to know
All the snow kids in snowman school know that snow is cold, but I am cool
It’s cold, cold, cold, dude, but I'm cool, cool, cool...watch me now!
U: When I’m going downhill, I go real fast, everybody waves as I’m zooming past
All the snow kids know the number one rule, know that snow stays cold, but I stay cool
It's cold, cold, cold, dude, but I'm cool, cool, cool...watch me now!
P: Going down the slope I always zoom, I tell everyone to give me some room
The snow kids dive in their snowman pool saying snow is cold, but I am cool
It's cold, cold, cold, dude, but I'm cool, cool, cool...watch me now!
A: When my toes gets cold and I've had enough, I don't quit when the going gets tough
The snow kids shout-- (song ends abruptly when Pablo starts shouting “Help!”)

Austin’s Lament (Austin solo) (Tune: "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star")
I want to win this race somehow, but I’m not in first place right now
I'm not in second or in third, I don't know quite how this occurred
I'm well prepared, but I’m not fast, instead of leading, I’m dead last
And I’m not happy about this, no sir, I’m not happy about this
Oh yes, I’m bummed that I’m so slow, but it’s not over yet, I know
My chance of winning’s kinda small, but if I quit, there’s none at all
So I’ll keep hiking ‘cross this range and hope that things will somehow change
Cause I’d be happy about that, yes sir, oh I’d be happy about that
If something strange makes this race change, well I’d be happy about that!

Racing Day [Reprise] (Pablo, Tyrone, Uniqua and Austin)
All: Racing day, it’s racing day, racing day, it’s racing
daaaay!
It’s not doily lacing day, today’s the day we race!
U: A long, long, long, long way we’ve come
T: To get back where we started from
P: We’ve raced real hard but now it’s time
A: To break that tape and cross that line!
All: Racing day, it’s racing day, racing day, it’s racing
daaaay!
It’s not self-effacing day, today’s the day we race!
Today’s the day we race! Today’s the day we race!

Musicians: Charlie Burnham, Billy Martin, Rob Curto, Kenny Wollesen
