Track Name: Remember
Fly balls flying at a baseball game
Hotdogs, friends, and a triple play
Dreaming on the bus of the hall of fame
We always will remember this day

Christmas decorations with a festive look
Singing bout some reindeer and a sleigh
Dancing round the tree and exchanging books
We always will remember this day

In the future, when we're older
We will remember the past
And the past is happening now
So remember to have a blast

Making coil pots at Multiarts
Squishing with our fingers in the clay
Different color glazes on different parts
We always will remember this day

At a station with your partner with a popsicle face
Fishing with your feet in a plastic bay
Splashing with sponges in a crazy race
We always will remember this day

In the future, when we're older
We will remember the past
And the past is happening now
So remember to have a blast

Ain't nobody got time for whining
Ain't nobody got time to fight
Ain't nobody got time for lying
When we're busy making memories bright

In the future, when we're older
We will remember the past
And the past is happening now
So remember to have a blast

So let's all have a blast
Track Name: What Will I Be?
I could be a vet, I could fly a jet
I could be a doctor, I could fly a helicopter
I could be a teacher, I could be a preacher
I could be a dancer, I could cure cancer
I don't know what I'm gonna be about
But I have time to figure it out

What will I be?
It's up to me
How will I know
Which way to go?
Don’t want to lose. Tell me how to choose.
What will I be?
What will I be?

I could push a mop, I could be a cop
I could be a miner, I could be a fashion designer
I could be a drummer, I could be a plumber
I could be a pioneer, I could be an engineer
I don't know what I'm gonna be about
But I have time to figure it out

What will I be?
It's up to me
How will I know
Which way to go?
Don’t want to lose. Tell me how to choose.
What will I be?
What will I be?
Track Name: Dreams Come True
You've got your life planned out
You're gonna do great things
Without a doubt
You're gonna spread your wings
When opportunity strikes, it's not to be missed
Are you ready to take that risk?

Whacha gonna do, whacha whacha gonna do?
Whacha gonna do, whacha whacha gonna do?
Hey kids, Whacha gonna do to make your dreams come true?

You're gonna go to school
You're gonna get good grades
Cause you're no fool
Don't let your future fade
Gotta be brave; No time to fear
Your life is whispering in your ear

Whacha gonna do, whacha whacha gonna do?
Whacha gonna do, whacha whacha gonna do?
Hey kids, Whacha gonna do to make your dreams come true?
Whacha gonna do to make your dreams come true?

When you feel really stressed and you're angry and annoyed
When you're sad and depressed 'cause you fell into a void
Don't forget
Don't forget
You are an unbreakable force
You'll take charge of your future's course

Whacha gonna do, whacha whacha gonna do?
Whacha gonna do, whacha whacha gonna do?
Hey kids, Whacha gonna do to make your dreams come true?
Whacha gonna do to make your dreams come true?
