I Feel Really, Really Good


by Bobby Boogaloo


Bobby's Song Notes: "This is a song about having a positive attitude... sometimes to feel good - really, REALLY good - we just have to make up our minds. There are many things that might seem beyond our control in this world, but we always have control over our own mind - it has a LOT of power if we choose to use it! To have a positive attitude makes us feel good, as well as helping those around us to feel good - now that's a lot of power!!!"




I feel really really good that's really really how I feel

I feel really really good that's really really how I feel

I feel so good today so don't anybody try to take it away

'cuz I feel really really good that's really really how I feel


I feel oh so fine, oh so fine I feel

I feel oh so fine, oh so fine I feel

I feel oh so fine, so don't anybody try to change my mind

'cuz I feel oh so fine, oh so fine I feel


I feel in my groove in my groove I feel

I feel in my groove in my groove I feel

I feel in my groove so don't anybody try to make me move

'cuz I feel in my groove in my groove I feel


I feel la-di-da, la-di-da I feel

I feel la-di-da, la-di-da I feel

I feel la-di-da so don't anybody try to make me feel BLAH!

I feel la-di-da, la-di-da I feel






You Can Be The You

That You Were Meant To Be


by Bobby Boogaloo


"This is a song about being a real star... I think anyone and everyone can be and IS a star. What does it mean to me to be a star? Just listen to that little voice in your head - it is there to guide you. Sometimes you have to listen really closely... When we listen to it, and follow our heart and our dreams - and then act upon it - we begin to shine from within... just like a star in the sky!"




CHORUS:

You can be the "you" that you were meant to be

Just follow the star of your destiny

Face your face in the mirror with dignity

And then you can be the "you" that you were meant to be


When the road gets rough ("doo doo doo")

When times get tough ("doo doo doo")

When you think you've had enough ("doo doo doo")

That's when we've got to rise and face fear in the eye ("i! i! i! i!")


CHORUS


It's not always easy ("doo doo doo")

It's not always breezy ("doo doo doo")

Maybe it makes you queasy ("doo doo doo")

But that's when we've got to rise and face fear in the eye

("i! i! i! i!")


CHORUS


Pursue excellence in whatever you endeavor

Be honest with yourself - no matter whatever

Follow your heart whatever tickles your feather

We've all just got to rise and face fear in the eye ("i! i! i! i!")


CHORUS x2




Do The Next Thing Now!


by Bobby Boogaloo


"We've all got those things we've just GOT to do!! But no matter what we have to do, we can always CHOOSE to do it in our own way - with our own STYLE, and our own SMILE! Sometimes all it takes is enthusiasm and the abilitiy to make a game of whatever we do to make our tasks fun (and it's easier this way too!)"



Play hard at your work and work hard at your play (X2)

Make a game of whatever you do and do it your way! (X2)

Do the next thing, do the next thing now! (X2)


The fun isn't in what you do, but how you do it

Just look your task in the eye and step into it

Do the next thing, do the next thing now!


Sometimes you've got to roll up your sleeves

and get the tough job done

Just jump right in get messy and make it fun

Do the next thing, do the next thing now!


You've got to get into it to get anything out

Your enthusiasm will conquer any doubt

Do the next thing, do the next thing now!


Sometimes we've got to do some things

we just don't want to do

But you never know what gifts it might have in store for you

Do the next thing, do the next thing now!



We've got to do the dishes! ("do the dishes!")

Feed the fishes! ("feed the fishes!")

Scrub the floor! ("scrub the floor!")

Paint the door! ("paint the door!")





O-U-R-A Canadian!


by Bobby Boogaloo


"What does it mean 2 B A Canadian? Canada is such a vast and diverse country in both its' land and its' people! We are all different and yet at a deeper level we are all the same! I think we all want to live in, and help create, a country that respects all our differences and allows us the freedom to pursue our dreams both individually and as a whole. It is up to each and all of us to help do our part to make this great country the best it can be. We're all in this together!"



CHORUS:

O-U-R-A Canadian!

And so proud to be

Can you tell me all about what it means 2 U

2 B Canadian?

True north strong and free

It's a beautiful wonderous country to call home


So tell me about the land!

What can you tell me about this land called Canada?


Well it's seven thousand kilometres from sea to sea

From Newfoundland all the way to B.C.

From the highest mountains to the flattest prairies

It's a land so grand and with such diversity

CHORUS


So what about the people?

What can you tell me about the people of Canada?


We come from everywhere - all over the globe

We all look different - but we all call this home

From the natives to the settlers of yesteryear

To today's immigrants - we all have our place here

CHORUS


So what makes Canada special?

I mean - what makes Canada "Canada"?


Well we take care of each other like a big family

We each have our own piece of responsibility

We start with ourself and then our vicinity

And the next thing you know we have one amazing country

CHORUS (x2)





This is the Song - Follow Along!


by Bobby Boogaloo


"This fun action song is a bit like 'Simon Says' except it's more like 'Bobby Boogaloo Says' -

just listen closely to the words and do what they say to do!"




Stand up on your feet

Stretch up to sky

Shake your hips

Wink your eye

This is the song - follow along!

("This is the song - follow along!")


Stick out your tongue

Say "la la la"

Make a funny face

And say "blah blah blah"

This is the song - follow along!

("This is the song - follow along!")


Reach down to the floor

Tickle your toes

Get on back up

And wiggle your nose

This is the song - follow along!

("This is the song - follow along!")


Now rub your belly

And tap your head

Hop on one foot

And then the other instead

This is the song - follow along!

("This is the song - follow along!")


Sit back down

Take a deep breath in

Hold it for a second

And let it out again


That was the song -

Thanks for following ALONG!





The 3R Blues


by Haley Simons


"This song goes out to our very best hostess - Mother Nature herself! We only have one planet, and it's up to each and all of us to take care of her the best that we can. If we each do our part, it can add up very fast to one very-well-cared-for planet. After all, if we take care of Mother Nature - MOTHER NATURE TAKES CARE OF US!!!"




I can turn off the lights, when I leave the room

I can ride my bike, and cut down on car fumes

I can turn off the taps, watch the water I use

I can recycle the metal and plastic and bottles and

paper that makes the news

Mother Nature, you're the one I choose . . .

I say recycle, reduce, and reuse - that's the 3R Blues


I can close the fridge door, don't let those CFC's out

I can clean up my streets and parks, clean all the litter out

I can fix things, instead of throwing them away

I can do whatever it takes to make sure nature stays

Mother Nature, you're the one I choose . . .

I say recycle, reduce, and reuse - that's the 3R Blues


I say reduce, recycle, and reuse

I say reduce, recycle, and reuse

I say reduce, recycle, and reuse

Cause that's the 3R Blues (repeat)





Taking Care of Each Other


by Bobby Boogaloo


"If we look out at the surface of the ocean, how many ripples do we see? Endless... and each one is unique unto itself. But if we go below the surface, deeper and deeper, we understand that it is one great ocean. What if we were like that? On the surface, we all look different and have our own uniqueness. But what if we choose to look a little deeper within ourselves and each other? What if, at a deeper level, we were really all one, just like that great ocean? If we look deeper, it is easy to see that we are all very interconnected, and how we treat others is very much the same as how we treat ourselves!"




CHORUS:

We are all the many, many, many,

many, many, many faces of one

And taking care of each other

is what makes this game fun (x2)


We're all in this world - each of us together

And so we must all take care - take care of each other

Treat one another with kindness and caring

It's one world for us all - one world for the sharing CHORUS


Everyone is different - so many shapes and colours

But we all beat with one heart - we're all sisters and brothers

One race of humanity, one face of the earth

Until we work together we won't know what it is worth CHORUS





If You Be Good To Your Body


by Bobby Boogaloo


"Our bodies can be our best friends if we treat them with the respect they deserve! As we treat it - so it treats us! If we feed it the most nutritious foods and drinks that help us grow, and give it plenty of exercise, it will return the favour by helping us to feel GOOD. BUT WAIT - THERE'S A SUPER SPECIAL BONUS: When our bodies are healthy and strong - then our minds and emotions can be healthy and strong too!"




An apple a day will keep the doctor away

That's what they say hey-hey

When you eat the food that's really good

Then your body says "let me repay!"


CHORUS:

So - take it from me and for yourself you will see

How these simple words can be true

When I say: If you be good to your body

Then your body be good to you

Yes I say: If you be good to your body

Then your body be good to you


Get outside and have a run around

Reach up to the sky and fall down to the ground

Just move your body like it was meant to do

Stretch it and shake it and do the boogaloo CHORUS


Drink plenty of water, get a good night's rest

And if you want to feel your power

pound your fists on your chest

Treat yourself right and you will be at your best

Feel like a million bucks with a zippity zest CHORUS





What Makes U Unique


by Bobby Boogaloo


"When no one's looking your way - when you're all alone and let yourself dream - that's when you can really find out how unique and special you are! It is very important that we honour, explore, and celebrate our own uniqueness, because we all have a place and purpose in this world. It is up to each of us to discover who we are and what we have to offer the world!"




CHORUS:

Uuuuu!

Rrrrrrr!

U! R!

U - U - U - U - nique

like a one-of-a-kind-snowflake

and your smile is your style - it's so groovy and chic

yes it's true

there's nobody quite like you

like a star in the night

may you always shine bright and true



it's the thing that you do

when noone's watching you

that's what makes you unique


it's the way that you play

when they've looked the other way

that's what makes you unique


CHORUS


it's the way that you sing

that gives you your zing!

that's what makes U unique


it's the way that you move

that gives you your groove

that's what makes U unique


CHORUS


it's your charm and the grace

that shows on your face

and that's what makes U unique


it's how you think for youself

that gives you true wealth

that's what makes U unique


CHORUS




You Can Do It!


By Bobby Boogaloo


"Sometimes, if we want to realize our dreams, we have to S-T-R-E-T-C-H! What do we stretch? Ourselves! We have to stretch ourselves a little beyond who and what we think we normally are and can do. It takes courage and persistence to grow and learn what needs to be grown and learned to realize our dreams. Sometimes it can be uncomfortable when we're trying new things! Sometimes we might think we 'fail', BUT - these 'failures' can actually be a very big part of our success! If we are stretching ourselves as we grow and learn, it is most likely that we won't get it right right away - otherwise we maybe aren't stretching ourselves enough! Did you know that Thomas Edison - who invented the light bulb - 'failed' 10,000 times before he finally achieved his success? When asked how he kept going despite all these 'failures', he replied that he didn't 'fail', he simply found 10,000 ways NOT to make a light bulb! Every single one of those ways became a part of the final success - so there is no such thing as failure as long as we keep learning and following our dreams!"




You can do it - that thing you must do

You can do it - just follow through... You can……. Do it!


You can do it - hold your chin up

You can do it - no matter what... You can……. Do it!


You can do it - yes indeed

You can do it - just sow a seed... You can……. Do it!


BRIDGE: ''Cuz if you focus the power of your mind

Then you will do it like a one-of-a kind

You can do it like nobody else

And all you've got to do is - think for yourself


You can do it - yes you heard me alright

You can do it - just follow your light... You can……. Do it!


You can do it if you're so inclined

You can do it once you make up your mind... You can…Do it!


You can do it you can do it you can do it

You can do it - there's nothing to it... You can……. Do it! BRIDGE


You can do it - and do it in style

You can do it - and do it with a smile... You can……. Do it!


You can do it - just keep on going

You can do it - just keep on knowing... You can……. Do it!





Thank You


By Bobby Boogaloo


"This song is about something called 'the attitude of gratitude'. What does that mean? Well... your attitude is your way of thinking, and 'gratitude' means to be thankful. Want to know a secret way to feel good, or to make yourself feel better if you're not feeling very good? Just close your eyes and think of ten things to be thankful for. Then maybe think of another ten things. Next thing you know, you can't help but to start feeling really, really good!"




Thank you for every song you sing

Thank you for all the joy you bring


CHORUS:

Thank you for the memories

Thank you for the melodies

Thank you, thank you, thank you


Thank you for thinking for yourself

Thank you for being like no one else CHORUS


Thank you for every happy dance

Thank you for every happenstance CHORUS


Thank you - it's an easy thing to say

Thank you - to brighten up your day CHORUS


Thank you and you and you and you

Thank you, and now I must say adieu CHORUS x3
