about

With the help of my Kids (3 and 6 years old) I write and perform children's songs. This album is a collection of songs we sing around our home and this album is a collection of recordings we have made together over the past 3 years.

The music explores imagination, emotions, love and nature. Music is central to our world and getting it out there for all to enjoy is just part of the game for us. Feel free to let us know what you think!

When we’re driving in our car what will we see?
When we’re driving in our car what will we see?
When we’re driving in our car what will we see?
When we're driving in our car

We might see a yellow school bus
We might see a double decker bus
We might see a long bendy bus
When we’re driving in our car

We might see a red fire truck
We might see an ambulance
We might see a police car in a rush
When we’re driving in our car

We might go over a bridge
We might go under a bridge
We might go around a roundabout
When we’re driving in our car

We might see rain falling down
We might see big fluffy clouds
We might see stars all around
When we're driving in our car

We might see people walking dogs
We might see people laughing a lot
We might see people jogging along
When we're driving in our car

We might see a forest of trees
We might see geese flying in a V
We might see a cow or a sheep
When we're driving in our car

We might see a doughnut shop
We might see an ice cream truck
We might see our favorite restaurant
When we're driving in our car

We might stop at a traffic light
We might stop and let a train go by
We're gonna stop and say goodbye
Because we've arrived back home!

If seeing is believing

If seeing is believing

Bigger than the sky above

And you`ve got your daddy’s soul
So Sing it loud until you’re old

We`re climbing in our family tree,
I`m glad you`re here climbing with me
We`re climbing in our family tree,

You have got your Uncles style
Style makes for a great big smile
You have got your Uncles style
And you're giving an Auntie sized hug
Hugs and kisses means so much

We`re climbing in our family tree,

You’ll always be a part of me.
You’ll always have your family tree.

We`re climbing in our family tree,
Track Name: Look Listen And Think About It
Look, Listen And Think About It by Dad and Kid

How can we concentrate when thing keeps going wrong?
How can we concentrate when there’s so much going on?

Look, Listen And Think About It

Are you looking at the instructions from beginning to end?
Are you looking at the paper when you’re holding a pen?
Are you looking at your teammates before you pass to them?
If you’re looking at me singing, go on, sing the chorus then

Look, Listen And Think About It

Are you listening to the words that your teacher says?
Are you listening to you momma when it’s time for bed?
Are you listening to your friends if they say you’re bugging them?
If your listening to this song, then sing along to the end.

Look, Listen And Think About It

How can we concentrate when thing keeps going wrong?
How can we concentrate when there’s so much going on?

Look, Listen And Think About It
Track Name: It's Not A Stick
It’s Not A Stick by Dad and Kid

It’s not just a stick it’s everything to me
So let me play in my imagination
It’s not just a stick it’s everything to me
So let me play win my imagination
I want a real lightsaber in my hand
I want to ride a motorcycle across the sand
I want to play cello in a band

It’s not just a box it’s everything to me
So let me play in my imagination
It’s not just a box it’s everything to me
So let me play in my imagination
I want to drive a car and hear it go vroom vroom,
I want to ride in the basket of a big red balloon
I want to fly a space rocket to the moon.

It’s not a bed sheet it’s everything to me
So let me play in my imagination
It’s not a bed sheet it’s everything to me
So let me play in my imagination
I want be a super scary halloween ghost
I want to build an ocean adventure zone
I want to make a base I can call my home

I want to ride in my imagination
So let me play in my imagination
I want to ride in my imagination
So let me play in my imagination
Track Name: Row Row Row Your Boat
Row Row Row your boat by Dad and Kid

Row Row Row your boat gently down the stream,
Merrily merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream

Ride ride ride your bike bumping down the trail
Watch out for catepillars, flowers and snails

Drive drive drive your car on a racing track
When you cross the finish line everyone will clap

Fly fly fly your plane zooming through the sky
If you look down at us you’ll see us wave bye bye

5,4,3,2,1 and blast off to mars
If you see an alien take a photograph

Row Row Row your boat gently down the stream
Merrily merrily merrily merrily life is but a dream

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, humpty dumpty had a great fall,

Track Name: Land Of The Silver Birch
Land of the Silver Birch

Land of the silver birch, Home of the beaver
Where still the mighty moose, Wanders at will
Blue lake and rocky shore I will return once more
Boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, eaa-aaa-aaa

High on a rocky ledge, I'll build my wigwam
Close to the water's edge, Silent and still
Blue lake and rocky shore I will return once more
Boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, eaa-aaa-aaa

My heart grows sick for thee, Here in the low lands
I will return to thee, Hills of the north
Blue lake and rocky shore I will return once more
Boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, eaa-aaa-aaa

Down in the forest, Deep in the lowlands
My heart cries out for thee, Hills of the North
Blue lake and rocky shore I will return once more
Boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, eaa-aaa-aaa

Swift as a silver fish, Canoe of birch bark
Thy mighty waterways, Carry me forth
Blue lake and rocky shore I will return once more
Boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, eaa-aaa-aaa

High as an eagle soars, Over the mountains
My spirit rises up, Free as a bird
Blue lake and rocky shore I will return once more
Boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, boom diddy-ah da, eaa-aaa-aaa
Track Name: I See The Moon
I See The Moon

What Do I See, What Do you See?
I see the moon and the moon sees me
Down thru the leaves of the old oak tree
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love.
Over the mountain and over the sea
Back where my heart is longing to be
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love

What Do I hear, What Do You Hear?
I hear the lark, the lark hears me
Singing a song with a memory
Please let the lark that sings to me
Sing to the one I love
Oven the mountain, over the sea,
Back where my heart is longing to be
Please let the lark that sings to me
Sing to the one I love.

What Do I Kiss, What Do You Kiss?
I kiss the rose and the rose kisses me,
Fragrant as only a rose can be
Please take this kiss that comforts me
Back to the one I love
Over the mountain, over the sea
Back where my heart is longing to be
Please take the kiss that comforts me
Back to the one I love

What Do I Love, What Do you Love?

Lay Baby lay, hold my finger as you sway through a dream

Close your eyes and fall to sleep
Goodnight
