Track Name: I Want to be an Astronaut
I like the moon, I like the stars,
I like Jupiter and I like Mars,
I like the Earth, but I'm ready to leave,
I can fly. I believe.

I want to go to the places I'm not,
I want to be an astronaut,
I want to soar deep into space,
I'm ready to go, I've packed my suitcase.

Zero gravity will be quite a thrill,
I can spacewalk, I've got the skill,
My spacesuit would fit like a dream,
Find some aliens with my laser beam.

Time for liftoff my dream has come true,
I've got my shaving kit, soap and shampoo,
As I fly away remember my song,
I'm going to the place I really belong.

I want to go to the places I'm not,
I want to be an astronaut,
I want to soar deep into space,
I'm ready to go, I've packed my suitcase.

I want to be an astronaut,
I want to be an astronaut,
I want to be an astronaut,
I want to be an astronaut.
Track Name: Michael Becker
The knight named Michael Becker,
Went walking through the woods alone,
He ran into a princess,
She said hey Bexy, walk me home.

So him and her went walkin' fast,
'Cause she smelled dragons in the air,
They made it to her castle,
There were a hundred soldiers there.

Michael, Michael Becker,
The strongest man in the land,
Michael, Michael Becker,
In every fight he'd make a stand.

Mike pulled his sword out of its sheath,
And waved it around in the air,
Said Hey you guys want some of this,
Well step right up if you dare,

The soldiers they all ran away,
Their horses not too far behind,
The princess said to Michael,
Boy there's been something on my mind.

Michael, Michael Becker,
You're so wonderful to me.
Michael, Michael Becker,
I want you to meet my family.

The knight named Michael Becker,
Went walking up to the King's throne,
The king said Thank you Michael,
For all the strength that you have shown,

You saved my castle from those guys,
Please have a drink of water,
You're welcome back anytime,
Just stay away from my daughter.

Michael, Michael Becker,
The strongest man in the land,
Michael, Michael Becker,
In every fight he'd make a stand.
Track Name: A Dog Ate My Shoe
A dog ate my shoe,
What am I to do?
I was on my way to visit you,
When that dog ate my shoe.
Track Name: B-R-A-N-D-O-N
B-r-a-n-d-o-n, B-r-a-n-d-o-n,
B-r-a-n-d-o-n, Spells Brandon,
B-r-a-n-d-o-n, B-r-a-n-d-o-n,
That's how you spell my name.
Track Name: It's a Rainy Day
Rainy rainy rainy rainy,
Rainy rainy rainy rainy,
Rainy rainy rainy rainy,
Rainy rainy rainy rainy,
It's a rainy day,
It's a rainy day.
Track Name: The Old Wooden Broom
I was sitting outside on a dark foggy night,
I looked in the sky and I saw quite a sight,
I watched as a witch flew in past the moon,
She landed by me on her old wooden broom.

Now I was alone so I asked her to sit,
Her hat was too big for her it barely fit,
I thought she was pretty and she sang a sweet tune,
Yet she rode upon an old wooden broom.

I invited her in, she took my advice,
She'd been here before possibly twice,
The first thing she saw was some dust in the room,
She cleaned it all up with her old wooden broom.

She started some music and asked my to dance,
I reached for her waist it was my only chance,
The song that we picked ended to soon,
But we kept spinning 'round that old wooden broom.

She took me outside it was much colder now,
I saw a bead of sweat drip down from her brow,
She was a princess, I must assume,
'Cause she swept me away with the old wooden broom.

She said I must leave you, I've more work to do,
And I said please don't go, I really need you.
I saw a big flash and I heard a loud boom,
And she flew away fast on the old wooden broom.
Track Name: It's Finally a Beautiful Day
Looked out my window, it was beautiful outside,
The clouds had all gone, the sun had no place to hide,
Spring must be near, and winter's away,
It's finally a beautiful day.

The birds are a-chirping, the squirrels a-stir,
The dogs are out walking, sheddin' their fur,
Spring must me near, and winter's away,
It's finally a beautiful day.
Track Name: Haircut Tuesday
I'm going to get my hair cut Tuesday,
I'm going to get it cut,
I'm going to get my hair cut Tuesday,
I'm going to get it cut.

Every day the same old show,
I walk outside and away it goes,
So I'm going to get it cut.

I'm going to get my hair cut Tuesday,
I'm going to get it cut,
I'm going to get my hair cut Tuesday,
I'm going to get it cut.

Started growing six months ago,
It got way to long now it's got to go,
So I'm going to get it cut.

I'm going to get my hair cut Tuesday,
I'm going to get it cut,
I'm going to get my hair cut Tuesday,
I'm going to get it cut.

I guess I look like a crazy man,
This whole thing has gotten out of hand,
So I'm going to get it cut.

Will I miss it? I'm not sure,
I'll grow it back just six months more,
I'm going to get it cut.

I'm going to get my hair cut Tuesday,
I'm going to get it cut,
I'm going to get my hair cut Tuesday,
I'm going to get it cut.

Golden curls are really great,
But the pony tail will have to wait,
'Cause I'm going to get it cut.
Track Name: Hero
Danger lurking to the east,
Monsters coming ready to feast,
Hurry people get inside,
Me and my boys are ready to ride.

I'm a hero, I'm a hero of this world,
I'm a hero, I'm a hero of this world.

As the sheriff of this town,
I'll stand tall, I won't back down,
Monsters approaching, a while away,
The sun is rising a brand new day.

I'm a hero, I'm a hero of this world,
I'm a hero, I'm the hero of this world.

I said goodbye to my only kin,
I promised them I'd be back again,
I joined my men, we were ready and right,
The moon was rising it was almost night.

I'm a hero, I'm a hero of this world,
I'm a hero, I'm the hero of this world.
Track Name: I Wish I had a Drum
I wish I had a drum, I wish I had a drum,
I'd play it every night and day,
I'd play it where the children play,

I wish I had a drum, I wish I had a drum,
I'd play it to the marching beat,
I'd play it as you stomped your feet,

I wish I had a drum, I wish I had a drum,
Each year for Christmas asked Santa for one,
Come Christmas morning I simply had none.

I wish I had a drum, I wish I had a drum,
I'd play it every night and day,
I'd play it where the children play,

I wish I had, I wish I had,
I wish I had, I wish I had,
I wish I had a, had a, had a drum.
Track Name: Favorite Food
Well there's pumpkin pie and there's apple pie,
There's key lime pie and blueberry pie,
Chicken pot pie and pizza pie,
I don't know what I should do,
You're my favorite food.

Chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies,
peanut butter cookies and sugar cookies,
Gingerbread and macaroons,
I don't know what I should do,
You're my favorite food.

Birthday cake, banana milkshake,
T-bone steak, early morning pancake,
Any other thing that you'd like to make,
I don't know what I should do,
You're my favorite food.

And it wouldn't be a meal without any peas,
Macaroni noodles and muenster cheese,
Black pepper, baby make me sneeze,
I don't known what I should do,

You're my favorite food,
You're my favorite food.
Track Name: Jeffrey
In an old room,
I met a man,
With curls in his hair,
And cards in his hands,
He was Jeffrey

And he had a donkey,
And he had a pack,
He said come with me,
And I'll watch your back,
He was Jeffrey.

And he likes to camp alone,
Where nobody else ever goes,
And he's not afraid of anything,
Except maybe a bear.

All of that day,
We played guitars,
Then that night,
We slept together under stars,
Me and Jeffrey.

And he likes to camp with me,
Where nobody else ever goes,
And he's not afraid of anything,
Except maybe a shark.

And he can run and jump and swing,
He's a superman he can do anything,
He'll build up a fire, or climb up a tree,
The most amazing thing that I've ever seen.

We were together,
Five or six days,
Then he said Brandon buddy,
We must part ways,
I am Jeffrey.

And I like to camp alone,
Where nobody else ever goes,
And I'm not afraid of anything,
Except maybe a friend,
But lets do it again.
Track Name: I Broke My 'A'
Woke up in the morning grabbed my phone and then it fell,
It sustained no damage at least not that I could tell,
My thumbs were finally waking up it was time to text away,
That is when I realized that I had a broken 'A'

I was sad and lonely I didn't know what to do,
Should I try and wait it out, or hit it with a shoe,
I took it to the repairman he fixed it right away,
I am now so happy that I have a working 'A'

I broke my 'A'
I broke my 'A'
I broke my 'A'
I broke my 'A'
I, I, I, I broke my 'A'
Track Name: Hide and Seek
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one,
I hope you found a hiding place, 'cause here I come,
I will search night and day, I will not rest,
I know I will find you soon 'cause I'm the best.

Please come out I can't find you, you've got me beat,
I know that you're somewhere near, I can't smell your feet,
You hide so well, you are the king, and I am just a man,
It's my turn to hide now catch me if you can.
Track Name: I'm a Robot
Grab my bag walk up the stairs,
Back to work but no one cares,
Voices, noises in the air,
Blinking lights are everywhere.

I'm a robot,
And I'm doing the same thing everyday,
I'm a robot,
I cash that check then I'm okay.

Sitting, standing in one place,
The greatest day for the human race,
Wrinkles written on my face,
A memory you'll not erase.

I'm a robot,
And I'm doing the same thing everyday,
I'm a robot,
I cash that check then I'm okay.

Well there must be some way,
To better spend eight hours a day,
Could be a doctor or an engineer,
Could be a lawyer or a three musketeer,
Could be a pirate or an astronaut,
Could be a cowboy but I forgot,

That I'm a robot,
And I'm doing the same thing everyday,
I'm a robot,
I cash that check then I'm okay.

Climbing through the family tree,
Branches are my company,
I envy smiles that I see,
They look back and envy me.

I'm a robot,
And I'm doing the same thing everyday,
I'm a robot,
I cash that check then I'm okay.

I'm a robot, I'm a ro-ro-ro-ro-robot,
I'm a robot, I'm a ro-ro-ro-ro-robot.
Track Name: Sing Along With Me
I wish there were a song for me,
A sweet and simple melody,
That I could sing and the world could see,
That I've got what it takes to be,
The number one superstar,
In your ear buds, in your car,
Radio, movies, and TV,
Everyone sing along with me,
Sing along with me.

I'd see my name in flashing lights,
And play my music every night,
I'd make 'em laugh and make 'em cry,
I'd make 'em sleepy, lullaby,
Spotlight shining up on stage,
A new adventure every page,
There's some things I'd like to do,
So sing with me and I'll sing with you,
Sing along with me.

Someday I'll be a memory,
The distant past, an old day dream,
But until then I'll play my tunes,
Under stars and under moons,
Let me know what I should do,
To make myself better for you,
I would do anything,
Just to hear you, hear you sing,
Sing along with me.

I wish there were a song for me,
A sweet and simple melody,
That I could sing and the world could see,
That I've got what it takes to be,
The number one superstar,
In your ear buds, in your car,
Radio, movies, and TV,
Everyone sing along with me,
Sing along with me.
Track Name: Treasure Hunt
There is a legend,
About a man and his gold,
Hidden in this apartment,
At least that's what I'm told.

I've got a map it will guide me,
Help me out on my way,
I will search for forever,
But I'd like to find it today.

I need to find, need to find,
need to find, need to find.

I will face certain dangers,
I know I'll get through,
If I don't find the treasure,
I don't know what I'll do.

I need to find, need to find,
need to find, need to find...
Track Name: It's My Birthday
It's my birthday and I'm gonna do,
Whatever, ever, ever I want to,
And as my friend be good to me,
Make my birthday very happy,
All the strangers will come my way,
And say happy, happy birthday.

It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday today.

It's my birthday and I'm gonna do,
Whatever, ever, ever I want to,
I'll comb my hair and count my toes,
I'll look outside and strike a pose,
I'll do a dance and wear a boot,
I'm going to iron out my birthday suit.

It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday today.

It's my birthday and I'm gonna do,
Whatever, ever, ever I want to,
And as my friend be good to me,
Make my birthday very happy,
All the strangers will come my way,
And say happy, happy birthday.

It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday, It's my birthday,
It's my birthday today.
Track Name: I Got a Rope
I got a rope, I got a rope,
I got a rope from my friend,
It was tied up at one end,
I got a rope from a guy,
That was so easy to tie.
