Track Name: Oklahoma Has Crazy Weather
Oklahoma has crazy weather
But we all think that's great
You're really gonna love it when you
Visit - our state

On Monday it snows three inches or more
By Tuesday the temperature's a hundred and four
On Wednesday wind, on Thursday rain
By Friday the weather man's gone insane

Often we have such foggy weather
All the birds get soggy feathers
The sun pops up and the wind blows enough
The birds can't fly with a permanent puff

repeat chorus

Once it rained real cats and dogs
Lizards chickens bats and hogs
But the day I'd say was truly awesome
Was the day it poured down nothing but opossum

Whenever we get thunder and lightning
The way it shakes the world is frightening
Hail so big the whole world shudders
Cows give milk shakes from their udders

repeat chorus

One day it sprinkled down baked potatoes
Sucked up from Idaho by thirty two tornadoes
Cooked in the clouds by a lightning ball
Dropped on our dinner plates butter and all

On a soda pop Tuesday it drizzles cola
Cereal Wednesday brings granola
We wake with a belly ache on the Monday
After every ice cream Sunday

repeat chorus
Track Name: Camp PBC (Parental Behavior Control)
My mother loves to kiss me right in front of all my friends
The list of chores she gives me is so long it never ends
She blames me for my brother's mess
She tells me no when I need yes
She's yack yack yacking on the phone, never leaving me alone
She’s always getting up in my face
So I sent her to this boot camp place

I sent my mom to Camp PBC
Parental Behavior Control
It's a place where she can learn to be fun like me
Up in the frozen North Pole
Camp PBC, Camp PBC
Parental Behavior Control

Today I got a letter with a North Pole stamp
My mother says she's having an adventure at camp
She's learning how to not say no
To every place I want to go
She practiced how to just chillax, she loves those classes to the max
They taught her how to make a s'more
And how to pay attention more

Repeat Chorus

My mom's been away now
Longer than I thought
Here's a surprise
I miss her a lot!

I sent my mom to Camp PBC
Parental Behavior Control
It's a place where she can learn to be fun like me
Up in the frozen North Pole
Maybe I shouldn’t have sent her away
I wish she was coming back home today

Track Name: Super Turtle
Jimmy's turtle, a red-eared slider,
Swallowed a radioactive spider
He was feeling very funny
He felt a tickle in his tummy
And he began to change
His body rearranged

Super Turtle, Super Turtle! High above the clouds
Super Turtle, Super Turtle! Waving to the crowds
Jimmy would be so surprised
To see him shoot his laser eyes
But Jimmy will never know
So Super Turtle, go!

Al E. Gator's evil scheming
Always ends with people screaming
Turtle flies in on the double
Then he lands himself in trouble
He's such a decent guy
We hope he doesn't die

Super Turtle, Super Turtle! High above the clouds
Super Turtle, Super Turtle! Waving to the crowds
Save the world again today
Make the bad guys go away
Jimmy will never know
So Super Turtle, go!

Even when things go wrong
He keeps his spirit strong
We know he'll find a way
Super Turtle always saves the day

Super Turtle, Super Turtle!
Super Turtle, Go!
Super Turtle, Super Turtle!
Super Turtle, Go!
Super Turtle, Super Turtle!
Super Turtle, Go!
Super Turtle, Super Turtle!
Super Turtle, Go! Go! Go!
Track Name: Silly Sock Monkey
Sock monkey digging out in the dirt
Sock monkey digging out in the dirt
Messy messy mud pies for dessert
Sock monkey digging out in the dirt

Sock monkey hiding under the bed
Sock monkey hiding under the bed
What could worry his fuzzy head?
Sock monkey hiding under the bed

Sock monkey sock monkey you’re such a mess
Why you running from me - I think I can guess
You got dirty when you went out and played
Now it’s time to get clean and you’re afraid

Sock monkey hiding down in a shoe
Sock monkey hiding down in a shoe
Why does sock monkey seem so blue
Sock monkey hiding down in a shoe

Sock monkey hiding in the washing machine
Sock monkey hiding in the washing machine
Monkey doesn’t know that’s how you get clean!
Sock monkey hiding in the washing machine

Socks and underwear swirling around
All twisted up in a dressing gown
tossed and tangled and twirled and spun
swish swoosh clunk - hey, this is fun!

Sock monkey wants to do that again
Sock monkey wants to do that again
The washing machine is now his friend
Sock monkey wants to do that again

Sock monkey digging out in the dirt
Sock monkey digging out in the dirt
Messy messy mud pies for dessert
Sock monkey digging out in the dirt

Silly sock monkey! (3x)
Silly sock monkey!
Track Name: Party Animals
There’s a weird little pet shop way across town
I was there around closing late one night
I went into the bathroom and when I came out
They had locked the door and turned out the light
Something went bump in the back of the store
In the light from the street lamp I could see
A bright pair of eyes and two pointy ears
Then this crazy little kitty started singing to me
He said...

We are party animals, party party animals
We like to party all night long
We are party animals, party party animals
If you want to party you can sing along

A dashing little dachshund did a disco dance
The chihuahua and chinchilla did the cha cha slide
A frog named Fred started spinning on his head
A snake did the salsa and a sideways glide
The salamander started up a saxophone
We did the macarena with a mighty macaw
An alligator turtle did the two step in a girdle
And we all started dancing the cha cha cha

Repeat Chorus

You may not believe a word of this song
But it's no lie, if that's what you think
Whenever I stop at that little pet shop
That one crazy kitty always gives me a wink
You might think your pet just sleeps through the night
Whenever you hit the hay
But some future date, if you stay up late
You might hear your hamster say...

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Wacky Week
My mother asked what's been going on at school
I started to say "nothing" like I always do
But then I changed my mind
I decided to be kind
And I told her the whole strange truth...

On Monday we went into space
Alien creatures took over the place
You should hear the way they speak
It's been a wacky week

On Tuesday we went to the fair
We saw a lady with facial hair
And a guy who looked like a geek
It's been a wacky week

It’s been a wacky wacky wacky week
Everything is crazy and new
Me and my friends hope it never ends
Everything I’m telling you is . . . true

On Wednesday the toilets exploded
The janitor said they were loaded
The ceiling began to leak
It's been a wacky week

On Thursday we all saw a ghost
Floating around eating buttered toast
Students began to shriek
It's been a wacky week

What will happen Friday? Nobody knows!
It seems like this week anything goes
But we know it'll be unique
It's been a wacky wacky wacky wacky 14x. . . whoa

It’s been a wacky wacky wacky week
Everything is crazy and new
Me and my friends hope it never ends
Everything I’m telling you is . . . true
