Track Name: Hacienda
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
Track Name: Eating Marmalade
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
Track Name: Same Exterior
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
Track Name: Nice People
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
Track Name: Dragonz
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
Track Name: She Makes the Greatest Food
She makes the greatest food
and her smile's always glowing
Her heart's always knowing when I'm hungry
Track Name: Lewis and Clark
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
Track Name: A Problem
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
Track Name: How to Fly in Two Easy Steps
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
Track Name: Taste the Moon
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
