My Cat's Got Fleas
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: G, C, D

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re crawlin’ on my toes
Cat got fleas and they’re crawlin’ on my toes
Cat got fleas, and everybody knows
My Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re climbin’ on my feet
Cat got fleas and they’re climbin’ on my feet
Cat got fleas, I admit defeat
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re walkin’ on my ankle
Cat got fleas and they’re walkin’ on my ankle
Can’t find a word to rhyme with ankle
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re runnin’ up my leg
Cat got fleas and they’re runnin’ up my leg
Cat got fleas, do I have to beg?
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re dancin’ on my knees
Cat got fleas and they’re dancin’ on my knees
Cat got fleas, won’t you help me please?
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re crawlin’ on my hand
Cat got fleas and they’re crawlin’ on my hand
Cat got fleas, don’t you understand?
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re climbin’ on my arm
Cat got fleas and they’re climbin’ on my arm
Cat got fleas, it’s doin’ me harm
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re walkin’ on my shoulder
Cat got fleas and they’re walkin’ on my shoulder
Cat got fleas, thought I’d get ‘em when I’m older
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re runnin’ on my face
Cat got fleas and they’re runnin’ on my face
Cat got fleas, it’s a big disgrace
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re dancin’ in my nose
Cat got fleas and they’re dancin’ in my nose
Cat got fleas, I wonder if it shows?
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re crawlin’ in my eyes
Cat got fleas and they’re crawlin’ in my eyes
Cat got fleas, and I can’t disguise
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and they’re climbin’ on my head
Cat got fleas and they’re climbin’ on my head
Cat got fleas, and everybody said
The Cat got fleas on me

Oh my Cat got fleas and I don’t know what to do
Cat got fleas and I don’t know what to do
Cat got fleas, you better look too!
‘fore the cat gets fleas on you!



The Pirate Song
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: G, D, C

Oh, a pirate’s life for me, a pirate’s life for me
Not living on the land always living on the sea!
Whenever I get lonely, whenever I get sad
I think about the pirate life I wish I could have had

Oh, if I was a pirate I’d sail the ocean blue
The Pacific, the Atlantic and Indian Ocean too!
I’d hang out in the Bahamas, I’d holiday in the Med
And no-one would ever tell me when it’s time to go to bed

Chorus

Oh, if I was a pirate I’d eat fish and chips all day
Arrgh! Land ahoy! Aye aye Captain is all I’d say
I’d have sword and pistol and a long a blueish beard
And if I came to your house your friends would think I’m weird!

Chorus

Oh, if I was a pirate I’d pierce my ear with gold
And tell you all the pirate tails from the days of old
I’d hoist the Jolly Roger high above my ship
And by my sword you’d walk the plank if you gave me any lip!

Chorus x2



Wash Your Hands
Music and Lyrics by, Andy Mason
Chords: A, D, E

Do you like it when you have a cough and a cold?
Do you like feeling like you’re 90 years old?
Do you like it when you have the stomach flu?
Do you like laying around with nothing to do?

I told my Mom to go get me some medicine quick
Because I hate laying down and I hate to be sick

Do you like it when your homework is piled to the sky?
Do you like it when you have the stinky pink eye?
Do you like it with a fever of 103?
Your eyes all puffy you just can’t see

I told my Mom to go get me some medicine quick
Because I hate laying down and I hate to be sick

So next time that you’re surrounded by the cold and the flu
And you don’t wanna get sick, here’s what you do
You gotta trust me now hear what I say
Take these easy steps make the bugs go away

Before you eat, after the bathroom too
Wash your hands, that’s all you do!

You gotta wash hands, yeah gotta wash you hands whoo!
Oh you gotta wash your hands, yeah you gotta wash your hands

Before you eat, after the bathroom too
Wash your hands, that’s all you do!



The Toilet Training Dance
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: G, D, C

There’s a dance you can do,
every time that you go poo (in the potty!)
There’s a song you can sing,
every time that you go pee (in the potty!)
To your parents you can say,
“let’s throw the diaper bag away!”
Everybody hey come come look at me now,
I’m a big kid today!

So say goodbye to poopy diapers,
say hello to clean underwear HOLA!
Adios to bottom wipers Au Revoir to legs in the air
Say Bonjour to bathroom independence,
I can pull up my own new pants
Everybody hey come look at me now,
and do the toilet training dance!

Repeat.



Hagdelina Magdelina
Lyrics: Traditional (Additional Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason and Don Thomas)
Chords: G, C, D

Here’s a little story about my friend
It has a beginning, it has an end
It’s the story of a girl with a very silly name
I think you’ll like her just the same

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name

She had two hairs on her head,
one was alive and the other was dead!

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name

She had two eyes in her head,
one was green and the other was red!

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name

She had two holes in her nose,
one held a daisy and the other held a rose!

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name

She had two teeth in her mouth,
one went North and the other went South!

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name

She had two sandwiches in her belly,
one was peanut butter and the other was jelly!

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name

She had two pockets in her pants,
one was full of worms and the other full of ants!

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name

She had to buttons on her knees,
one made her cough and the other made her sneeze!

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name

She had two feet size twenty and a half,
one took a shower and the other took a bath!

Hagedelina Magdelina Hoopensteiner Wallenbiener
Hogan Bogan Logan was her name!

Monkey see, monkey do. Monkey get in trouble too
Monkey see, monkey do. Monkey get in trouble too
I’m a monkey, a little monkey
You’re a monkey, a little monkey

Monkey shout HOO-RAY! Monkey dance it’s a sunny day

I’m a monkey, a little monkey
You’re a monkey, a little monkey

My Hair Had a Party Last Night
Music and Lyrics by Grimwood/Idlet
Chords: G, C, Am, D

Oh, My hair had a party last night,
When I lay down everything was all right,
It started out friendly but there must have been a fight,
My hair had a party last night
Oh, My hair had a party last night,
When I lay down it was looking out of sight,
My head hit the pillow and there must have been a fight,
My hair had a party last night

Early in the morning, I get out of my bed,
The birdies are singing outside
There's Belgian waffles on the table and a cold glass of milk,
I got a warm, fuzzy feeling inside
I can't wait to go to school, I love myself,
I'm the captain of the football team
But my alarm goes off and I hear my mama yell,
I realize it must have been a dream

Oh, My hair had a party last night,
When I lay down everything was all right,
It started out friendly but there must have been a fight,
My hair had a party last night
Oh, My hair had a party last night,
When I lay down it was looking out of sight,
My head hit the pillow and there must have been a fight,
My hair had a party last night

I look at the brush, I look at the comb,
I look at the scissors but I leave them alone.
There's a bear that lives in a cave by a tree,
This morning that bear looks just like me
I try to wet it down but it only makes it worse,
The cowlick in the back is a family curse
I pick up my hat, put it on my head,
wish I was dreaming back in my warm bed

Oh, My hair had a party last night,
When I lay down everything was all right,
It started out friendly but there must have been a fight,
My hair had a party last night
Oh, My hair had a party last night,
When I lay down it was looking out of sight,
My head hit the pillow and there must have been a fight,
My hair had a party last night

Oh, My hair had a party last night,
When I lay down everything was all right,
It started out friendly but there must have been a fight,
My hair had a party last night
Oh, My hair had a party last night,
When I lay down it was looking out of sight,
My head hit the pillow and there must have been a fight,
My hair had a party last night

Sheep
Music and Lyrics Paul Heaton and Ian Peter Cullimore (additional lyrics by Andy Mason)
Chords: A, Bm, E, D

Sometimes I get so jealous of the simple life they lead
They don’t need no radio and no TV
They've never questioned anything, they never disagreed
Sometimes I think that they’re smarter than me

And when you see a cane I see a crock
And when you see a crowd I see a flock
When the Sheep get up and dance
When the Sheep get up and dance

When I was young, at nighttime out to the fields I’d creep
Watching all the sheep so secretly
Now when you’re tired and you are trying to get to sleep
Go out to the country and you might see

And when you see a cane you’ll see a crock
And when you see a crowd you’ll see a flock
When the Sheep get up and dance
When the Sheep get up and dance

Repeat

Delaney’s Donkey
Music and Lyrics by William Hargreaves
Chords: B, E, F#, G#m, A#m

Now Delaney had a donkey that everyone admired
Temporarily lazy and permanently tired
A leg at every corner balancing his head
And a tail to let you know which end he wanted to be fed
Riley slyly said we've underrated it,
why not train it, then they took a rag

They rubbed it, scrubbed it, they oiled and embrocated it,
got it to the post and when the starter dropped the flag
There was Riley pushin' it, shovin' it, shushin' it
Hogan, Logan and everyone in town
Lined up, attackin' it and shovin' it and smackin' it
They might as well have tried to push the Town Hall down
The donkey was eyein' them, openly defyin' them
Winkin', blinkin' and twistin' out of place
Riley reversin' it, everybody cursin' it
The day Delaney's donkey ran the halfmile race

The muscles of the mighty never known to flinch
They couldn't move the donkey a quarter of an inch
Delaney lay exhausted, hangin' round his throat
With a grip just like a Scotsman on the five pound note

Starter, Carter, he lined up with the rest of them
When it saw them, it was willin' then.

It raced up, braced up, ready for the best of them
They started off to cheer it but it changed its mind again

And there was Riley pushin' it, shovin' it, shushin' it
Hogan, Logan and Mary Ann Macgraw
She started pokin' it an' grabbin' it an' chokin' it
It kicked her in the bustle and it laughed hee-hah
The whigs and conservatives, the radical superlatives
Liberals and tories, they hurried to the place
Stood there in unity, helpin' the community
The day Delaney's donkey ran the halfmile race

The crowd began to cheer it, then Rafferty, the judge
He came up to assist them, but still it wouldn't budge
And the jockey who was ridin' it, little John McGee
Was so thoroughly disgusted that he went and had his tea

Hagan, Fagan were students of psychology Swore they'd shift
him with some dynamite.

They bought it, brought it, and without apology
The donkey gave a sneeze and blew the whole lot out of sight
There was Riley pushin' it, shovin' it, shushin' it
Hogan, Logan and all the bally crew
Police, and auxiliary, the Garrison Artillery
The Second Enniskillen's and the Life Guards too
They seized it and harried it, they picked it up and carried it
Cheered it, steered it to the winnin' place
Then the bookmakers drew aside and they all got on their knees and cried
The day Delaney's donkey won the half - mile - race



Kewsong
Music and Lyrics by Andy Mason
Chords: G, D, C

On the day you were born I could hardly have known
You would be as beautiful as you are
But now I see, how pretty you can be
And you look just like your Mama when you smile

So lay your head down, don’t you scream don’t you frown
And let your Daddy hold you for a while

On the day you were born I could hardly have known
You would be as beautiful as you are
But now I see, how pretty you can be
And you look just like your Mama when you smile

So lay your head down, cause I will always be around
And let your Daddy hold you for a while
Yeah, let your Daddy hold you for a while
Yeah, let your Daddy hold you for a while



A Mi Madre

Quisiera darte las gracias, madre de mi corazón
Por todas las bendiciones que me has dado con tu amor
Las flores del campo brillan y celebran en tu honor
Porque eres la flor mas linda que en el mundo puso dios

Me diste tu amor, me hiciste cariños
Mi felicidad, desde que era un niño
Las flores del campo brillan y celebran en tu honor
Porque eres la flor mas linda que en el mundo puso dios

INTERLUDIO

Venimos a festejarte, dando nuestra gratitud,
Pidiendo a dios te conceda muchos anos de salud
Las flores del campo brillan y celebran en tu honor
Porque eres la flor mas linda que en el mundo puso dios
Porque eres la flor mas linda que en el mundo puso dios
