Birdie (c. 2003)

Our first CD was so fun to make! We were very excited to record it and we did that at our friends house, Curt and Daniela! It really has a fun, child-like spirit and feeling. We hope you like it! 

Rainbow

I'm gonna paint a rainbow

A rainbow in the sky

I will need a ladder

So I will get real high



Chorus:

Rainbow, rainbow, colors softly blending

Rainbow, rainbow,colors gently bending

Rainbow, rainbow, colors never ending



I'll dive into my rainbow

Of red and green and blue

And I will swim in yellow

A splash of orange, too



Chorus



I'll dance upon my rainbow

'till stars light up the sky

And rest upon the stars

While moon sings lullaby



Chorus

Sugar Cane Train

In the deep of the night, in the far off distance

I hear the humming of the track

And as the train rolls by, I start to think of you

The music takes me back



Chorus:

We rode the Sugar Cane Train

We rode the Sugar Cane Train

 

It was a wondrous ride, to have you by my side

As we were sweetly serenaded

And everywhere I gazed beauty surrounded me

My heart was so elated

 

Chorus



Bridge:

An island breeze was in the air

And we didn't have a care

No, we didn't have a care



Chorus



c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk





Happy Thoughts

If you want to be big

You can't think small

If you want to be strong

You've got to stand tall 



Chorus:

And think Happy Thought

Think Happy Thoughts

Wherever you go, whatever you do

You know your thoughts are up to you

So think Happy Thoughts

Think Happy Thoughts

 

When all the lights are out 

And you're in bed

Instead of being afraid

Remember what I said



Chorus



The world's a brighter place

Oh yes, it's true

Because you choose your thoughts 

In all the tings you do



Chorus

 

c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk





Gabriel

You with your heart that heals

On my doorstep, you were so real

But your eyes threatened me 

With their honesty, yes, their honesty

Was there someone there to try and take my place?



Chorus:

Gabriel, my guardian angel

Gabriel, my guardian angel



I'd always hide away

Hoping you wouldn't ask to stay

But you still followed me

So persistently, so persistently

You were always there

To try and hold my hand



Chorus



Bridge:

That's why you appeared to me

But I was too young to see



Chorus



Now that you have your wings

In my heart I feel a sting

But I want you to know

Before you, yes, before you go

There is someone here

Who always will need you



Chorus

c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk





Great Day

Morning came too soon

And it's chilly in my room

I'd love to pull the covers over my head

And stay in bed



But Mama says, "Get up, dear'

Cause the time for school draws near

Your breakfast eggs are getting old

Your hot tea is cold



Chorus:

It's a great day, it's a perfect day

I'm gonna try and make it my day

I'm gonna laugh today, I'm gonna smile today

And things will go my way, yeah, things will go my way



School bell rang, oh no

I've got one more block to go

And the cluds have started raining on me

But don't you see

Here at school it's great

Even teacher got here late

And at lunch, we'll have nuggets and tots

I will eat lots



Chorus



Bridge:

Things are looking good today

Cause on my test I got an A

One more thing I've got to say

Bo-dee-o-ba, it's Friday



Chorus

c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk





Birdie

There's a bird outside my window in the tree

And he's singing very happily to me

So why would there be anything so wrong

With him singing such a pretty little song



Chorus:

It's nighttime, bedtime, time for me to sleep

It's nighttime, bedtime, there shouldn't be a peep

So sleep Birdie, sleep, sleep, sleep

Sleep, Birdie, sleep, sleep, sleep



Oh the moon has made a spotlight just for her

And her song's so sweet my kitty starts to purr

Mosquitos and crickets start to hum

And the faucet in the bathroom taps the drum



Chorus



Oh, this symphony is pretty, yes it's true

So there's just one thing that I can think to do

I lay on my pillow and close my eyes

As I'm serendaded until the sunrise



c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk











Pasta Jiggle

Pasta Jiggle

If you just got to wiggle

Here's a dance that's right for you

It's gonna make you giggle

'Cause it's called the Pasta Jiggle

Chorus:

Are you Ready?...Do the spaghetti!

Swing you're belly...To the rotelli!

Get nice and teeny...Do the linguine!

C'mon wiggle to the pasta, Jiggle to the pasta

Wiggle to the Pasta Jiggle



Clap your hands and move your feet

Shake your hips from side to side

Don't you love this tasty beat

It's a really fun dancing treat



Chorus



Bridge:

Don't stop now we've just begun

There's lots more pasta and plenty of fun!



​​If you just got to wiggle

Here's a dance that's right for you
It's gonna make you giggle
'Cause it's called the Pasta Jiggle



Chorus



c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk

Circle

Oh let's all make a circle

A circle of friendship and fun

Let's all make a circle 

And we'll include everyone



Chorus:

Circle, circle to the right

Give a gentle squeeze

Circle, circle round we go

Now we spin with ease



Take the hand of a friend

Or someone you'd like to meet

Come and join our circle

And make our circle complete



Chorus

Oh, let's all make a circle

Let's all make a circle

Let's all take a bow



c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk

Licorice Twist

I've got my red vest on and I'm doing the Licorice Twist

I've got my shiny black shoes and I'm dancing my toes to the twist

I'm feeling good, I'm looking neat

Twistin' my tummy to this sweet, sweet beat



Chorus:

Yeah, doin' the Licorice Twist

I'm twistin' high, I'm twistin' low

I'm twistin' any ol' way my tummy will go

Yeah, the Licorice Twist

Yeah, the Licorice Twist



This time I've got your hand and we're doing the Licorice Twist

Now let's stop and red vine, that means we're twisting in one big line

I'm feeling good, I'm looking neat

Twistin' my tummy to this sweet, sweet beat



Chorus



Licorice Twist!



c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk

Superhero

I don't need to grow up

To know what I want to be

I already know what's inside of me



Chorus:

I'm a Superhero

I'm strong, good and I care

I'm a Superhero

I'm fast, smart and aware



I always look to see

If there's someone in need

Then I roll up my sleeves 

And do a good deed



Chorus





c. 2003 Teresa Gasca-Burk & Gary Burk

Do You Know

Do you know what makes you happy...do you know?

When you're happy do you smile and let it show

When the sun is in the sky shining down on you

Do you open up your heart and let it in



Chorus:

Let it in, oh, let it in

Do you open up your heart and let it in



Chorus

 

Do you know what makes you happy...do you know?

When you're happy do you smile and let it show
When the sun is in the sky shining down on you
Do you open up your heart and let it in
