Hacienda 02:25
I meet up with an old friend We're gonna build a house Pretty soon we get to work We get our hands in the dirt Before long, I start to see the foundation of this house I don't even know who's gonna live in it All I know is that it's gonna be a Hacienda, hacienda, hacienda, hacienda I want this friendship to never end-a We wipe and clean up all the fancy windows as we put them on this house It's got a front door and a shiny floor It's sitting on a hill be the shore Before long, I marry my friend and we move into this house Now I've got kids named Jim and Brenda and we're truly happy living in a Hacienda, hacienda, hacienda, hacienda I want this friendship to never end-a

Eating marmalade you can't complain (x3) and you know it'll taste real good I've tried it all from the butter to the jelly but there's only one that makes me really happy Keep your head up high Look into the sky Sing your favorite song and do your favorite dance Eating marmalade you can't complain (x3) and you know it'll taste real good I love my breakfast My breakfast really loves me Add a little something extra to your breakfast Keep your head up high Look into the sky Sing your favorite song and do your favorite dance Eating marmalade you can't complain (x3) and you know it'll taste real good I can't try to deny the taste of marmalade Put the spread on your bread and your breakfast is made

Hey you You're looking pretty cool You're in high school (high school, yeah!) Hey you You're looking pretty slick with your new trick Everyone's got the same exterior Everyone else just feels inferior But no, not me because I'm free No, not me because I'm free, yeah Hey you You think you've got it made with your new shades (new shades, yeah, yeah, yeah) Hey you You think you're all that with your new hat

Nice People 02:09
I like nice people 'cause they're always really nice I met a mean person and I gave him some advice I said be nice be nice So if there's a time that you are feeling down take a walk downtown because nice people are the way to a happy life

Dragonz 02:25
I am a worker Gotta work hard All the time Daytime I work three jobs Just to get by I write this song for extra income But by night I'm slaying dragons I fight to defend what's right I train day and night with my sword I don't ever get bored I ensure that justice prevails I put the bad guys in all the jails I'm slaying dragons Work hard and save the princess from evil dragons trying to keep her locked in towers up really high la la la la la la la la la I'm working for the common good I set goals I fight dragons and trolls I love to eat warm cinnamon rolls I don't like slow songs 'cause they're always draggin' I'm slaying dragons I don't do easy work but I'm not one to complain I work in sun or rain I travel like a cowboy Climb that tower And with all my power you know I'm slaying dragons

She makes the greatest food and her smile's always glowing Her heart's always knowing when I'm hungry

If there were another direction I'd show my affection by seeing you and I'd be like Lewis and Clark because I always find a new way to see the world If you listen to my sweet music and if you approve it then I'll be sure that I'd be like Lewis and Clark because I always find a new way to see the world I walked to your house a walk so long and as I went I wrote this song and now I'm here to sing it for you It's not perfect but it sure is true If I'm being a fool, give me a nudge You be the judge And I'd be like Lewis and Clark You know the world will fall never apart You know it right from the very start Because I know you

A Problem 01:44
A problem Don't try to make it 'cause I couldn't take it The sun up above us all day long will shine but the kid in the classroom cannot draw the line A problem Don't try to fake it and I'll never break it The birds in the sky all day long will fly But the kid in the classroom He won't even try Don't you try to make a problem It is never the solution Don't you try to make a problem It is never the solution You won't mistake it unless you wake it The space in the sky It won't catch an eye But you know that it will fill the space in your head A problem
9.
You've been a friend for a long time and it's time that I show you what I can really do I don't show simply everyone my power I only show my power to a good friend like you Yes, it's true I can fly There are only two steps to flying Step one is to hold my hand and step two is to fly We're really flying We're really flying We're really flying

So much exploring in space But nobody thought to try this one really cool thing The moon is completely edible, as tasty as can be Fly with me and you'll see Did no one ever think to taste the moon? Oh, did no one ever think to taste the moon? Did no one ever think to taste the moon? Oh, did no one ever think to taste the moon? So many rockets in space but none of the astronauts were hungry for the moon And it's waiting for someone to grab a spoon and start eating the moon
