Track Name: Let's Get Some Sunshine
Wake up homies, don't be lazy,
Go outside, and just go crazy,
Turn off your gameboy, smell the daisies
Come feel the sun shine, It'll be amazing
Just like an Ally Oop

Let's get some sunshine
Let's breathe the trees
Let's play outside
Get dirt on our knees

Grab a blanket, We’re going to the park
Gonna see the people, Gonna hear the dogs bark
Let’s pick some apples, In the picnic zone
Now isn’t this better than sitting at home?

Let's smell the flowers
Let's taste the breeze
Let's get some sunshine
Let's breathe the trees

Let’s get some exercise, go for a swim
Ride our bikes to the pool and dive right in
Throw a Frisbee, climb a tree
Now isn’t this better than watching TV?

Let's get some sunshine
Let's breathe the trees
Let's play outside
Get dirt on our knees
Let's smell the flowers
Let's taste the breeze
Let's get some sunshine
Let's breathe the trees

Don't be a gnome just sitting at home
Come on outside with me!
Track Name: Get Up Get Active
Get up early, on your feet
Move your body to the beat
Outside is the place to play
Sixty minutes every day

Get up get active, come on get at it
Workout be awesome, work all your muscles
Gonna make you feel good
You'll be on top of the world

Roll and tumble, lift some weights
Throw a baseball, roller skate
Grab a football, take a run
Basketball is lots of fun

Get up get active, come on get at it
Workout be awesome, work all your muscles
Gonna make you feel good
You'll be on top of the world

Be attractive, exercise
Just get active win the prize
You’ll stay healthy and lose weight
Looking good and feeling great

Get up get active, come on get at it
Workout be awesome, work all your muscles
Gonna make you feel good
You'll be on top of the world
You’ll be on top of the world
Track Name: Junk Food King
Do you dream of becoming a super star?
The junk food king won’t let you go very far!
He’ll dull your mind and make you lazy and sick
He’ll slow you down with his junk food trick

The Junk Food King will smash your dreams
And fill you with the stuff you get on Halloween
To rule your world he'll do anything
He'll mess with your mind - he’s the Junk Food King!

The Junk food king is sneakier than a snake
He'll turn your carrot into carrot cake
He'll give you a tour of his junk food store
He hypnotizes you to want more more more!

The Junk Food King will smash your dreams
And fill you with the stuff you get on Halloween
To rule your world he'll do anything
He'll mess with your mind - he’s the Junk Food King!

The junk food king is mean and does not care
If you think he is your friend, beware
Your mom and dad and teachers can't be beat
They will tell you what's good to eat

The Junk Food King will smash your dreams
And fill you with the stuff you get on Halloween
To rule your world he'll do anything
He'll mess with your mind - he’s the Junk Food King!

Beware the Junk Food King!
Beware the Junk Food King!
Track Name: Fruit Monster
I'm a fruit monster, Feed my thirst
I'm a fruit-splosion, Ready to burst
Squish, splash, splat, crash!
That's how I eat my fruit

I would climb Mt. Everest
For one bite of apple - they’re the best
I would fly to Savannah
Just to peel me one banana
I would jump from here to Hawaii
To find myself a single fuzzy kiwi
If I’m out of fruit and need some more
I would even go to the grocery store

I'm a fruit monster, Feed my thirst
I'm a fruit-splosion, Ready to burst
Squish, splash, splat, crash!
That's how I eat my fruit

Bake me a cake, I’ll smash it
Give me a cookie, I’ll trash it
I don't mean to be so rude
But I won't eat any junk food
Eating fruit is my passion
I could even wear it as a fashion
There's only one thing you can do
To make me happier - eat fruit too!

I'm a fruit monster, Feed my thirst
I'm a fruit-splosion, Ready to burst
squish, splash, splat, crash!
That's how I eat my fruit
That's how I eat my
fruit!
Track Name: Germs On the Run
Germs on the run
When they get you it's no fun
And their favorite trick
Is to make you sick

Germs germs here and there
Germs germs everywhere
There's a ton of germs all over me
Why can't they just let me be?

Wash wash wash your hands
Together soap and water can
Make those germs disappear
Get those germs out of here

Germs on the run
When they get you it's no fun
And their favorite trick
Is to make you sick

Cov cov cover your face
Don't just sneeze all over the place
Use a tissue or your sleeve
Then you won’t spread disease

Germs on the run
When they get you it's no fun
And their favorite trick
Is to make you sick

Ick!
Track Name: Getting My Z's On
I go to bed same time each night
I do the same routine before I turn out the light
I brush my teeth, I get a nice warm shower
I read a book for half an hour
I put on my PJs and get a drink of water
Then wiggle into bed like a big fat otter
Mom comes in for a kiss and a hug
She turns out the light and I’m snug as a bug

I’m getting my zs on
Till my alarm goes beep
Getting my zs on
I need a good night’s sleep

I gotta get my sleep - every night
I don’t feel good if I don't get it right
Whenever I break the sleepy time code
I'm gonna wake up in zombie mode
- za za za zombie mode

I feel so draggy, I'm grumpy and rude
I'm rubbing my eyes. I've got a bad attitude
My head's on the desk in a puddle of drool
A zombie can't do well in school!

I’m getting my zs on
Till my alarm goes beep
Getting my zs on
I need a good night’s sleep

I go to bed same time each night
I do the same routine before I turn out the light
I brush my teeth, I get a nice warm shower
I read a book for half an hour
I put on my PJs and get a drink of water
Then wiggle into bed like a big fat otter
Mom comes in for a kiss and a hug
She turns out the light and I’m snug as a bug

[: Dream dream dream I’m in the middle of a :]

Oh, man! Time to get up already?
