I Need To Read (to Feed my Brain)

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

So nice to meet you,  So nice to greet you

So nice to have you, here with me

I'm glad I met you,   won’t soon forget you

'Cause you're everything a friend could ever be

So nice to see you,  So nice to be with you

So nice to have you, here with me

I'd like to play with you,  Everyday with you

'Cause you're everything a friend could ever be

Bridge:

 

Some days, we don't see eye-to-eye

Seems like everything we do, we disagree

No need to feel so sad, we could just smile and be glad

'Cause we're everything good friends should ever be

So nice to smile with you,  So nice to laugh with you

So nice to have you here with me,
I'm glad that you're my friend

One I can always depend on

You're everything a friend could ever be

I'm glad that you're my friend

One I can always depend on

You're everything a friend could ever be

Yes, you're everything a friend could ever be

You’re everything a friend could ever be

Who put the mascara on my zebra?
Who put the mascara on my zebra?

Who put the mascara on my zebra—
And made her look so weird?

Who put lipstick on my hippo?
Who put lipstick on my hippo?

Who put lipstick on my hippo—
And made her look so weird?

Who put the necklace on my giraffe?
Who put the necklace on my giraffe?

Who put the necklace on my giraffe—
And made him look so weird?

Who curled the hair on my lion?
Who curled the hair on my lion?

Who curled the hair on my lion?—
And made him look so weird?

Who painted pink nails on my lemur?
Who painted pink nails on my lemur?

Who painted pink nails on my lemur—
And made her look so weird?

Who put the earrings on my monkey?
Who put the earrings on my monkey?
Who put earrings on my monkey?—
And made him look so weird?

Bridge:

Who dressed my animals like a celebrity?
Decorated their bodies like Katy Perry
Who thought they were not good enough the way they be
And messed with their looks—their natural beauty
So I took ‘em to the carwash—I washa their face
Straightened those curls—got rid of that lace
I cleaned their nails—undid those braids
An’ I told them they be beautiful the way they be made

Now the animals are happy and free—
now the animals are happy and free
Now the animals are happy and free—
they’re wearing smiles everyday
Now the animals are happy and free—
now the animals are happy and free
Now the animals are happy and free—
they’re wearing smiles everyday

Now the animals are happy and free—
they’re wearing smiles everyday
Now the animals are happy and free—
they wear smiles everyday

I know a girl, she talks all the time
There are words in every breath she takes
Her mouth is always goin' nowhere fast
She's a talking tsunami earthquake

She talked so much she wore words out
Her tongue got so tired it almost died 
Her constant talking & blabbing went on & on & on
She couldn’t keep anything inside.

Bridge:

One day while putting on her lipstick & talking to herself
She grabbed a tube she thought
was Super Gloss Lip Bright
But it was really Super Glue & it stuck to her lips
And glued her chatty mouth tight

Chorus:

Now the girl goes
(mmmmmmmmmmmm)
(mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)  (mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)
She's the girl with the super glue lips

Now the lesson you can learn from this speechless gal
About talkin’ up a blue streak
Choose your words carefully
when you open your mouth
And think before you speak

End Chorus:

And you’ll never go…
(mmmmmmmmmmmm)
(mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)  (mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)
She's the girl with the super glue lips(mmmmmmmmmmmm)(mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)  (mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm)
She's the girl with the super glue lips
She's the girl with the super glue lips
She's the girl with the super glue lips

Disclaimer: Young children up to age 18 are not allowed
to purchase, use, or touch any glue that has the words “super” or “crazy” in its name—by law...I think. Not sure.

There's a hunger hiding deep inside my head
I have this curious craving—I need to be fed
I see a wide world of words everywhere I look
And I can find it all inside a book

Chorus:

Inside a book is where I want to be
Where I can picture whatever I read
I'm gonna grab it by the covers, read every single page
Inside a book,  that's where I want to be

The words on the pages jump out right at me
In an ocean of wonder—a floating library 
Flipping fabulous words hung on a baited hook
I can catch them all inside a book

Go to Chorus

End Verse:

My imagination shot into the stratosphere
Then to the center of the earth – it was pretty hot there
It was so totally exciting, I was so crazy spellbound
When I had to go to bed, I couldn't put my book down
So I flew across the ocean, I landed on the moon,
I saw this wide world of words from a hot air balloon
Then I hopped aboard a train, I took it to the mountain top
I love to read and I just can't stop

Funny All Day

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

Funny in the morning,   Funny in the evening

Funny any time of the day,  Funny when I’m reading

Funny when I’m writing,  Funny when I play

Funny when I’m sleeping,  Funny when I wake up

Funny when I take a bath,  Like the sun is sunny

Fun is funny,  And funny makes me laugh

Repeat verse

Chorus:

Fun is funny all day,  it’s funny when I play

And when I’m feelin’ crummy & sad

I put some funny in my tummy

And smile at the sunny

Cos funny makes me glad

End Chorus:

Fun is funny all day,  it’s funny when I play
And when I’m feelin’ crummy & sad
I put some funny in my tummy
And smile at the sunny
Cos funny makes me glad
I put some funny in my tummy
And smile at the sunny
Cos funny makes me glad

Why Don’t Bears Wear Underwear?

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

My stuffie bear wears 'em, and so do I

My daddy's got big ones called boxers,
with something called a fly

When my mom goes to Walmart,
she buys mine by the pair

So if everybody has them,
why don't bears wear underwear?

Chorus:

Why don't bears wear underwear,
why don't frogs jump in clogs?

Why don't elephants wear life jackets everywhere?

Why don't snakes slide in slippers,
why don't cats prance in hats?

I still wonder bears don't wear underwear?

Now I saw a skunk, he didn't smell too good

He was stinkin' up the whole neighborhood

Well I looked into his eyes and gave him a stare

Said, "That never woulda happened,
if you wore underwear”

Go to Chorus

Bridge:

He ought to wear boots and mittens, to keep his paws clean
And if he wore a hat, he wouldn't look so mean
He really needs a t-shirt, that says, "Hug me, I'm a bear,"
It surely would be groovy,  if he wore underwear

Go to Chorus

End Chorus:

Why don't bears wear underwear,
why don't frogs jump in clogs?
Why don't elephants wear life jackets everywhere?
Why don't snakes slide in slippers,
why don't cats prance in hats?
I still wonder bears don't wear underwear?
I still wonder bears don't wear underwear?

I Like Monkeys

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

I like elephants,  I like buzzing bees

I like singing birds that live up in the trees

I like wiggly snakes, tho’ sometimes they scare me

I like big brown bears,

But most of all—I like monkeys

I like the deep blue sky, I like a warm breeze

I like mountain tops, as far as I can see

I like a big bright sun, when it shines on me

I like the moon at night, Woh-Wah-Wee-Wah!

But most of all—I like monkeys

I like all my friends, when they play with me

I like sloppy mud, on my hands and knees

I like staying up late to watch scary movies

I like my warm bed,

But most of all—I like monkeys

Sneezing Feels So Good

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

Sneezing feels so good,
but don't do it in someone's face
Don't spread your icky germs in their personal space
Keep your friends liking you,
don't hang your head in disgrace
Hold your shirtsleeve to your mouth,
and put your sneezy in its place

Chorus:

...like this—ah-choo, yeah, ya do it like that—ah-choo
Everytime you have to cough or sneeze,
just do it like this—ah-choo
Do it like this—ah—choo,
yeah ya do it like that—ah-choo

Anytime you have to cough or sneeze,
just do it like this—ah-choo

Now when you have to sneeze or cough,
don't cover your mouth with your hand
‘Cause whatever you touch, becomes a microbic wasteland
Coughing sometimes hurts, but don't do it in the air
Hold your shirtsleeve to your mouth
and put your "coughy" right there

Go to Chorus

Tell My Monkey

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

Chorus:

I’m gonna tell my monkey, Tell my monkey
I’m gonna tell my monkey, Tell my monkey
I’m gonna tell my monkey, Tell my monkey
Just what you did….
I’m gonna tell my monkey, Tell my monkey
I’m gonna tell my monkey, Tell my monkey
‘Cause my monkey like listenin' to tattlin'

I saw you using too much glue,
I see that you didn't tie your shoe
Your desk is really messy, and I'm gonna tell on you
Then you sharpened your pencil
way too much before class began
And you didn't do you your homework...
you'll be in trouble again

Go to Chorus

I told teacher you didn't wear your hat
and it's very cold outside
And then at recess you climbed
the wrong way up the slide
Then you budged in line in front of me
when our class had to go in
And when I tell on you...you'll be in trouble again

Go to Chorus

I told my teacher that you wrecked my snow fort
and she asked me, “Paul, who owns the snow?"
I thought real hard about it and I said, "I don’t know.”
Then she asked me a very hard question, she said,
“Did your fort have an insurance policy, Paul?
When I asked her, "What's insurance, teacher?” 
She smiled & said, "Go see the monkey."

I’m Bored

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

Chorus:

I’m sittin’ on my butt, sittin’ on my butt
Sittin’ on my butt, ‘cause I’m bored
Not a thing I can do, when I don’t have school
I’m sittin’ on my butt being bored

I got a list of 200 things I could do
It’s all stuff I’ve done before
Like go outside, skateboard, bike or run
I’d rather sit around the house and be bored

Go to Chorus

Nothin’ good on TV, my video games are old
Don’t care if my bedroom’s a mess
Well, I might as well admit it, but it’s really hard to do
Guess I could do something fun…like play chess

Go to Chorus

Bridge:

Whoa—someone just turned a light on inside my brain
Everything is beginning to look bright…yes
Gonna put on my cool shades & head outside
I think I’ll fly my Spiderman kite

End Choruses:

NOT sittin’ on my butt, NOT sittin’ on my butt
NOT sittin’ on my butt anymore
Got stuff I can do, when I don’t have school
Not sittin’ on my butt being bored

I’m NOT sittin’ on my butt, NOT sittin’ on my butt
NOT sittin’ on my butt anymore
Got stuff I can do, when I don’t have school
Not sittin’ on my butt anymore

I got stuff I can do, when I don’t have school
Not sittin’ on my butt being bored
I’m not sittin’ on my butt anymore
Not sitting’ on my butt being bored...
Yeah, I finally got a life…

Crackin’ open a book is better than a candy bar—
Better than a TV show
And my gaming thumbs they need a good rest,
I think I’ll give ‘em a break and go…
Find a cool book, with groovy pictures and all
I know where it all will lead…

Chorus:

I need to read to feed my brain—
get aboard that storybook train
I need to read to feed my brain—
a good book will keep me entertained
My imagination’s goin’ wild, my eyes are getting big
I got a hunger inside I need to feed—I need to read

Shaking up the marbles floatin’ in my brain—
They’re makin’ words I like to read
I’m spellbound, hypnotized, amused and engaged
A captivating read is what I need
I got a cool book, with groovy pictures
and all I know where it all will lead…

Go to Chorus

Narration:

Hi, my name is Levi. You know, reading makes me very, very hungry. I start with a big appetite and devour a good book.
I am going to feast on a banquet of words...yummy yummy tasty text. I am going to stuff myself with stories and curious characters. Soooooo hungry. I’m a big pig for a good book...I am going to consume it all. I LOVE TO READ!

Hiding under the covers with my trusty flashlight,
Got to read just one more page
But my batteries are fading fast & I’m trying’ to stay awake
This animal is getting out of its cage
I like a cool book, with groovy pictures & all
Cos man I love to read

I Was That Kid

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

I was that kid
The one with the goofy looks and awkward style
Somehow I got through each day with my smile
And though my clothes were just
a bunch of hand-me-downs
Who’d of thought today
they’d be the coolest threads around.
I was that kid

I was that kid
The one a little different than the rest
The one who felt a little more than less
The last one to be picked when choosing sides
But I learned to fight back tears & hold my pride
I was that kid

Bridge:

But now I’ve grown into a man
With the heart of the child I understand
And I would give my life for the boy or girl
All alone in a world that’s sometimes cruel

I was that kid
Oh, look at me now—content to be who I am
My hope for you is that you’ll understand
Though growing up can seem like an eternity
Someday you could be cool just like me
I was that kid - I was that kid
I was that kid

Kind Hero

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

Woke up this morning—Nice was on my mind
Rubbed my eyes, got outta bed—I was feelin' so fine
Good morning to you—Hope your day is kind
Can I help you find your way—I got time-time-time

Chorus:

Kind Hero—no Super Hero with a cape
Kind Hero—no King Kong or big ape
Kind Hero—no mask on his face
Kind Hero—loves the human race
Kind Hero

Rap:

A kid cut me off in line—And-I-said "I really don't mind"
Then-a-girl was so unkind—But I did not whine
Some people aren’t too cool—Just doin’ their own thing
Dissin’ whatever you say, now ring, ring, sing

Go to Chorus

Don't Know What To Be On Halloween

© Words by Paul Nye & Kameron Artley nyesguyTunes Publ/BMI

© Music by Paul Nye  nyesguyTunes Publ/BMI

Soon it will be Halloween,
and I don't really know what I'll be
A witch, vampire, ghost or ghoul,
or maybe a screamin' zombie.
Soon it will be Halloween,
and I can't seem to make up my mind
A Disney Prince or an evil queen,
don't know what to be on Halloween

Soon it will be Halloween,
and I don't really know what to be
Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, or Katy Perry Soon it will be Halloween
and I'm beginning to feel confused
Target, Sears, Walmart, Walgreens—
don't know what to be on Halloween

Chorus:

Halloween (Halloween), Halloween (Halloween)
Don't know what I'll be on Halloween
Halloween (Halloween), Halloween (Halloween)
I don't know what to be on Halloween

Soon it will be Halloween, I'm feelin’ kinda strange
Should I be scary, fun, outrageous
or weird or maybe a little deranged
Soon it will be Halloween, I need a costume that’s right
To go door-to-door, to get some treats,
on this frightful night

Go to Chorus

Soon it will be Halloween, what Super Hero is hot
Batman, Robin, The Hulk or Flash, you might be but I am not
Soon it will be Halloween, trick or treatin’ is all I care
Gimme my candy, I’ll be gone, I don’t really want to share

Go to Chorus

Bridge:

I woke up late one morning, and stumbled out of bed
Headed straight to the bathroom,
couldn't stand the smell of my breath
I grabbed my toothbrush & loaded it up,
and brushed the scum off my teeth,
Then I looked in the mirror & fell on the floor,
I scared myself half to death

Soon it will be Halloween, I finally know what I'll be
It all seemed so perfectly clear,  Standing in front of me
Then I got this brainy idea, one Einstein would have said,
Why be someone less scary, when I can be myself instead

End Chorus 2X :

Halloween (Halloween), Halloween (Halloween)
I know what I'll be on Halloween
Halloween (Halloween), Halloween (Halloween)
I finally know what to be on Halloween

I Do All My Own Stunts

By Paul Nye © nyesguyTunes Pub./BMI

I do wheelies on my bike,  Ollies on the ramp
Strike out every batter at baseball camp
I can back-flip in the end zone,
kick a goal on every punt
Crash-land on my belly, I do all my own stunts

Chorus:

All my own stunts, all my own stunts
I do all my own stunts, all my own stunts
Rockin’ all my own stunts, all my own stunts
Yeah, I got skills,  I do all my own stunts

Backwards, forwards, upside down & back
I eat Wheaties for breakfast,  don’t give me no flack
Got a cool soccer mom who drives her van in any lane
I may be a baby brother, but I can deliver pain

Go to Chorus

Bridge:

I’m sittin’ in the backyard, lookin’ at a tree
I’ll conquer it tomorrow, just you wait & see
It’s a pretty big job to build a fort that high
But I know I can do it if I give it a try

Now I lay me down sleep on my Pokemon sheets
My daddy says a prayer with me as I fall off to sleep
I pray the monsters in the closet don’t come near my bed
If they show their ugly face, I’ll pull the covers o’er my head

End Chorus
