Boogers

Boogers. Sometimes you find them in your nose, sometimes you find them on your clothes.
No one knows exactly where they go, those Boogers.
Boogers, they could be so much fun to pick, but that would make other people sick.
Best get a tissue and just blow those boogers.

Boogers, come in many shapes and sizes, many different colors too.
Boogers, your body exercises, if you have allergies, a cold or a flu.

Boogers, sometimes you find them in your nose, sometimes you find them on your clothes.
No one knows exactly where they go, those Boogers.

Boogers, come in many shapes and sizes, many different colors too.
Boogers, your body exercises, if you have allergies, a cold or a flu.

Cushions

My girls play with cushions
from all throughout the house
they take them from the stools and chairs
they take them off of the couch
they pile 'em up on the floor
and call it a "cozy town"
my oh my what a surprise
when i go to sit down
I say "oh, whoa oo whoa oo whoa - where did all the cushions go?"

Next thing come the pillows
from Mommy and Daddy's bed
My oh my what a surprise
when Mommy laid down her head
the blankets and the sheets
they're dissappearing too
my oh my oh me oh my
what else can I do?
Except say "oh, whoa oo whoa oo whoa - where did all the cushions go?"

Pillows and cusions
make an awesome shack
but when you're finished playin'
you've got to put all the cushions, put all the cusions and pillows back

Now blankets make terrific TeePees
and boxes may an awesome train
table cloths make a geo-dome
to keep you out of the rain
but when you're finished playing
you've got to put all that stuff away
or Mom and Dad will be saying
in a most unpleasant way
They'll say "oh, whoa oo whoa oo whoa - where did all the cushions go?"
They'll say "oh, whoa oo whoa oo whoa - where did all the cushions go?"

Farty MacFartigan

Oh - the clans tell the tale, of a Fragrant lad
Who meandered through the highlands, smellin’ really bad
They say he could clear a (whole) town with his presence
And the people would flee from his odorous essence

"The lad will be back" the clan elders said
"And with him he'll bring back the scent we all dread.
So Plug all your noses, for we know what has been. When Farty MacFartigan farts again!"

[Chorus]
When Farty MacFartigan farts again
You're gonna smell it from glen to glen
Everybody's gonna know it when
Farty MacFartigan farts again!

And then it came true, the elders were right
Farty strolled into town one dark winters night
The townspeople hid, clothespins on their noses
styrofoam buckets covered their roses

Farty stood in the square and let a fart fly
So huge and so smelly, that it lit up the sky
It blew the roofs of the houses, knocked some of them down
And left a huge crater in the center of town

Then he turned and he left, and walked o’r the moores
And the townspeople sang as the walked out their doors
no more shall we fear the wrath of his smell
he’s gone back to the cave, where Farty doth dwell

[Chorus]
When Farty MacFartigan farts again
You're gonna smell it from glen to glen
Everybody's gonna know it when
Farty MacFartigan farts again!

My Dog's Feet Smell Like Taco Chips

(group)
Taco chips +4

My dog’s feet smell like taco chips
I can’t believe that I let that slip
you must think I’m a bit of a nut
that i would smell my doggy’s foot

but it’s true….
they smell like taco chips!
yeah, taco chips
not hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese or beggin’ strips
when he jumps up to greet ya,your nose had better have a clip on it
‘cause my dogs feet smell... like taco chips

I’m not sure when I noticed it
that my dogs feet smell like taco chips
but one day we were rolling around
and in my face came the foot of that hound
I took one whiff and it blew me away, a smell I remember until this day
it wasn’t dirt...
IT WAS TACO CHIPS!
they smell like taco chips
not hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled cheese or beggin’ strips
when he jumps up to greet ya,
your nose had better have a clip on it
‘cause my dogs feet smell... like taco chips

Teethin'

Teethin' - you've been Teethin'
Come face-to-face with the truth
Teethin' - you've been Teethin'
Gums makin' way for a tooth

It's true what they say
The pain will go away
and you'll live to chew solid food
A tooth grows in place
of that gummy empty space
a fact that you should not misconstrue

It's true what they say
The pain will go away
and you'll live to chew solid food
The first set grows in
the first set falls out
preparing for set number two
Now Brush!

Teethin' - you've been Teethin'
Smile - show of those pearlly whites
Teethin' - you've been Teethin'
Take care to keep 'em shiny and bright

It's true what they say
The pain will go away
and you'll live to chew solid food
So brush every day to avoid the tooth decay
From bridge, to incisor to root

Where Mama Go?

Well I call for mama, and get no reply
My sister calls too and is starting to cry
I don't know what's going on but I want to know
"Where Mama go?"

[Chorus]
Where Mama go, where Mama go
We searched high and we searched low
Everybody in the house they want to know
Where mama go?

I skinned my knee need a hug
My sister screamed 'cause she saw a bug
My brother rolled me up inside the rug - oh no!
Where mama go?

[Chorus]
Where Mama go, where Mama go?
We searched high and we searched low
Everybody in the house they want to know
Where mama go?

[Bridge]
Mama is the best,
and we know mama needs her rest
But our smiles have turned to frowns, and mama is nowhere to be found!
Daddy's here, but he just won't do
And I just stepped in doggy do
Whoa is me, I wish I knew
Where mama go?

[Chorus]
Now the day is done and it's time for sleep
Will mama read a book to me?
I look around, and who do I see?
Oh... There's mama!
