Peter Rabbit [Erick Traplin]
Well I Jumped Out Of Bed At The Crack Of Dawn
Ran Downstairs With My Pjís On
Looked High And Low For Some Easter Treats
I Couldnít Find A Single Thing To Eat
Oh , Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit,
Where Did You Hide Those Eggs

I Looked On The Tv And In The Potted Plant
Was Nothiní There But A Little Chocolate Ant Popped In My Mouth For A Tasty Treat
Then I Felt It Wriggle ĎRound My Gums And Through My Teeth
Oh , Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit,
Where Did You Hide Those Eggs

Looked On The Shelf And In The Magazine Rack
All I Found Was Some Stale Apple Jacks
Looked Behind The Picture Hanginí On The Wall
And Under The Dog Laying In The Hall

Oh , Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit,
Where Did You Hide Those Eggs

Now My Brother Found Four Chocolate Easter Bunnies
Ten Cream Eggs And A Jar Full Of Honey
He Laughed At Me It Was Obscene
All I Could Find Was A Red Jelly Bean
Oh , Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit, Peter Rabbit,
Where Did You Hide Those Eggs
Peter Rabbit( ) Peter Rabbit ( ) Peter Rabbit ( Hey Pete Get Back Here), Peter Rabbit ( You Can Tell Me Where You Hid Them)

Peter Rabbit ( Iíll Give You My Lucky Rabbitís Foot) Oh! Oh! I Shouldnít Have Said That) Peter Rabbit Where Did You Hide Those Eggs

Weather, Whether Or Not [Traplin/Wiebe]
Iím A Ragged Old Scare Crow ,With No Place To Go
I Stay Here In This Field , Protecting What You Sow
Thereís One Thing That Iíve Found As I Stand Here Year Around

Whether Itís Cold Or Whether Itís Hot We All Have Weather Whether Or Not
When Itís Raininí I Start Complaininí When Itís Sunny , Iím Wild And Funny
When The Snowfalls , Iím Makiní Snowballs
When The Wind Blows , I Hang Onto My Hat - Just Like That
Though Iím Just An Old Scarecrow Iím Gonna Tell You What I Know
Whether Itís Cold Or Whether Itís Hot We All Have Weather Whether Or Not

Iím Dressed In Rags And Bows, I Have A Button Nose
My Brain Is Made Of Straw, But Iím Smart Enough To Know
Some Days Are Cold And Wet
Sometimes I Just Melt
Whether Itís Cold Or Whether Itís Hot We All Have Weather, Whether Or Not

Iím A Scare Crow, Watch The Wind Blow
Iím A Scare Crow , Watch The Crows Go
When Jack Frost Calls And The Leaves Fall
Then The Wind Blows , I Hang Onto My Hat, Just Like That
And Through The Years Iíve Found Something Quite Profound
Whether Itís Cold Or Whether Itís Hot We All Have Weather Whether Or Not

When Itís Raininí I Start Complaininí When Itís Sunny , Iím Wild And Funny
When The Snowfalls , Iím Makiní Snowballs
When The Wind Blows , I Hang Onto My Hat - Just Like That
Though Iím Just An Old Scarecrow Iím Gonna Tell You What I Know
Whether Itís Cold Or Whether Itís Hot We All Have Weather Whether Or Not

You Are My Sunshine [Davis/Mitchell] [New Words-Traplin]
You Are My Sunshine , My Only Sunshine
You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey
Youíll Never Know Dear, How Much I Love You
Please Donít Take My Sunshine Away

The Other Night Dear As You Lay Sleeping
I Came And Kissed You On Your Cheek
I Saw You Smile And Then Roll Over
But You Didnít Hear Me Speak

Iíll Always Love You And Do My Bestest
To Keep And Guide You On Your Way
And Should You Ever Feel Unhappy
Then Iíll Be There To Say

Someday Youíll Leave Me To Love Another
And Then My Wish For You Will Be
That They Will Bring You All The Sunshine That You Have Brought To Me

My First Date [Erick Traplin]
Itís Saturday I Have A Date My First Date Donít Want To Be Late
But Iím Scared And Just A Little Nervous In My Stomach It Feels Like Thereís A Circus

Now You Know I Want To Look My Best
I Want To Stand Out From All The Rest
Oh, I Hope Sheís Gonna Like Me Just Fine
But When I Look Into The Mirror I Want To Run And Hide

I Got Baboon Lips Down To My Hips
My Nose Sticks Out Like A Speckled Trout
Yesterday I Looked Okay
Tonight I Look Like A Big Old Turkey

Got Elephant Ears Flappiní In The Breeze
They Wiggle When I Walk And Jiggle When I Sneeze
Oh, Man Is This My Fate Why Do I Look So Ugly On My First Date

Shine My Shoes And Comb My Hair
Oh Man Iíve Got Nothiní To Wear
Check My Look Out In The Mirror
And There Iím Seeing My Worst Fear

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall Why Do I Look So Awful
My Mom Says Itís All In My Head
But My Mirrorís Telliní Me Something Else Instead

I Got Baboon Lips Down To My Hips
My Nose Sticks Out Like A Speckled Trout
Yesterday I Looked Okay
Tonight I Look Like A Big Old Turkey

Got Elephant Ears Flappiní In The Breeze
They Wiggle When I Walk And Jiggle When I Sneeze
Oh, Man Is This My Fate

The Mouse Inside The Wall [Erick Traplin ]
One Early Christmas Eve, Before Santa Came,
A Mouse Snuck Out Of His Little Hole And Licked A Candy Cane.
Before He Could Escape, He Heard The Sound Of Little Hooves,
It Was Santa's Little Reindeer, Prancing On The Roof.

Down The Chimney Santa Came And Stood Before The Mouse,
And Asked Him If He Was, The Owner Of The House.
The Mouse Was Very Pleased And Held Himself Up Tall,
Said, "I Am The Little Mouse, Who Lives Inside The Wall."

And I Scurry "Round By Night, Looking For A Bite,
A Little Scrap Of Food, To Take Home To My Wife,
Who Lives With Me Inside The Wall, With My Children All
Oh, I Am The Little Mouse, Who Lives Inside The Wall.

Well, Santa Laughed So Hard, A Tear Fell From His Eye,
To See A Mouse So Proud, And Not The Least Bit Shy.
He Said I Can't Recall, Meeting One So Brave And Small,
As The Little Mouse, Who Lives Inside The Wall.

Santa Wiped A Joyful Tear From His Twinkling Eye,
Then Santa Asked The Mouse, With What He Could Supply.
A Fire Truck, A Tricycle, Or A Big Red Ball,
Anything At All For The Mouse Inside The Wall.

Oh, It Would Be So Nice, If I Could Have A Slice,
A Little Piece Of Pie, To Take Home To My Wife.
Who Lives With Me Inside The Wall, With My Children All.
Said The Little Mouse, Who Lives Inside The Wall.

Santa Reached Inside His Pack, Brought Out A Pie So Small,
That It Would Even Fit, Within The Mouse's Tiny Paw.
And Every Time You Took A Bite, It Came Back To It's All,
And Gave It To The Little Mouse, Who Lives Inside The Wall.

Then Santa Quickly Filled The Stockings Hanging In A Row,
And With A Merry Christmas, Up The Chimney He Did Go.
The Mouse Then Sang A Song, As He Ran Off Down The Hall.
Sang, I Am The Little Mouse, Who Lives Inside The Wall


And I Scurry 'Round By Night, Looking For A Bite,
A Little Scrap Of Food, To Take Home To My Wife,
Who Lives With Me Inside The Wall, With My Children All.
Oh, I Am The Little Mouse, Who Lives Inside The Wall.

Oh, I Am The Little Mouse, Who Lives Inside The Wall
