The Career Song (It All Depends)- Lyrics

The Career Song

There are Astronomers and Couriers, and Industrial Engineers

Archeologists, Economists, and even Auctioneers

There are Carpenters to build your house

Dentists that can fix your mouth

Oh, It all depends on what you want to be

There are veterinarians, librarians, and forensic scientists

Social Workers & Real Estate Brokers, and Sports Psychologists

There are Plumbers to fix your drain

And surgeons to operate on your brain

Oh, it all depends on what you wanna be

If you like to cook, well, you could be a Chef

And if you like to draw, perhaps an Architect

And if you’d like to make the clothes people wear

Then you could be a fashion designer

Or even make the costumes on a movie set

There are Policemen and Firemen, and Marine Biologists

Paramedics, Auto Mechanics, Ortho and Optometrists

There are Accountants to do your taxes

And Chiropractors that can fix your backs-s

Oh, it all depends on what you wanna be

If you like to read, then you could be an editor

And if you like the law, perhaps judge or a lawyer

And if you’re good at statistics

You could study demographics

And Do market research for an advertiser

Oh, it all depends on what you wanna be

It all de-pends on what you want to be

Talented Song - Lyrics

Talented Song

I’ve always been good at climbing trees

And you should see me swing on a flying trapeze

And I make a delicious banana bread

I guess that means I’m talented

Well, I’m quick on my toes when I’m chasing mice

And when I take a big leap, I’m pretty precise

I can balance a text book on my head

So this obviously makes me talented

See, Everybody’s good at something

Though its not always easy to figure out

When you discover what makes you special

Well, that’s what its really all about

I’ve always been a pretty good listener

My jump shot is practically second nature

There’s nothing I can’t fix with a needle and thread

So this must make me talented

Hey Hey, let me try

I can skate faster than a hockey puck

And easily out swim any size shark

When it comes to dancing I’m always two steps ahead

That must mean I’m talented

Oh, Everybody’s good at something

Though its not always easy to figure out

When you discover what makes you special

Well, that’s what its really all about

Da da da da, da da da da

Da da da, We’re Talented!

Da da da da, da da da

It’s true, we’re all talented

It’s true, we’re all talented

Learning Is A Hoot - Lyrics

Learning Is A Hoot

It’s always fun to learn something you don’t know

And use it in a way that helps you grow

You figured out what all those new words mean

Now everybody’s impressed now when you speak

Oh, reading, writing and arithmetic can make you quite astute

Oh learning is a hoot

Learning is a hoot

Once you get the hang of it

Learning is a hoot

Yeah, learning is a hoot

Knowledge is just like a great big tree

The higher you climb, the further you can see

When you study real hard and put it to the test

It feels real good to know you’ve done your best

And even better when you get to put it all to use

Oh learning is a hoot

Learning is a hoot

Once you’ve got the swing of it

Learning is a hoot

Yeah, learning is a hoot

You can teach yourself just about anything

But you only get real good from practicing

Stick with it long enough and you might find

A way to do something no one else’s ever tried

Sometimes it comes easy, sometimes its a pursuit

Oh learning is a hoot

Learning is a hoot

Once you get good at it

Learning is a hoot

Oh learning is a hoot

Yeah learning is a hoot

Awww learning is a hoot

And remember kids, early bird gets the worm

The Responsibility Rap - Lyrics

The Responsibility Rap

When my alarm rings, instead of hitting snooze

I need to get in gear, no excuses

Jump start my ignition

‘Cause being on time is my mission

Got to figure out how long it will take

To get out the door and not run late

‘Cause when it comes being punctual

That’s a big part of being reliable

Don’t want class held up cause of me

I’m the one who’s got to take some…

Responsibility

Responsibility

Responsibility

Hip hip hop-itty, a bunny knows

It’s hard to listen when indisposed

But if someone gives you instructions

Better find a way to pay attention

When it comes to homework, I’m such a flake

That’s why I leave reminders all over the place

See if I forget, it’s all on me

Got to follow through and show some…

Responsibility

Responsibility

Responsibility

Responsibility

Super-cal-banana-licious

Take out the trash, and do the dishes

When my mamma gives me a bunch of chores

I goto keep in check, stay the course

But sometimes i just get distracted

I monkey around, and they get neglected

So i figured out how to make a list

Check them off when they’ve been accomplished

See, organizing your activities

Proves that you can handle your…

Responsibilities

Responsibility

Responsibility

Responsibility

Let's Make A Team (The Teamwork Song) - Lyrics

Let’s Make A Team (The Teamwork Song)

Let’s make a team

It’ll be lots of fun

Join forces you and me

‘Cause two heads are better than one

Let’s make a team

Give ourselves a name

Have our very own cheer

And bust out some “A” game

Let’s make a team

Okay, let’s do it

“T” is for working together

“E” means everybody counts

“A” all for one and one for all

“M” let’s motivate each other

‘Cause its fun to play

Be a good sport

Try hard and compete

We can do ten times better if we work as a team

Hey, want to join our team?

Okay

Let’s make a team

Each choose a position

Come up with a strategy

Execute with cooperation

Let’s make a team

Give everyone a turn

And when the going gets tough

We’ll dig deep and put our rally caps on

Let’s make a team

Okay let’s do it

“T” is for working together

“E” means everybody counts

“A” all for one and one for all

“M” let’s motivate each other

‘Cause its fun to play

Be a good sport

Try hard and compete

We can do a hundred times better if we work as a team

Na na na na na na na na

Na na na na (Repeat)

Woo hoo

We’re awesome

How ’bout a trick play

Go get em

Good job

On three ”

T” Doesn’t matter if we win or lose

“E” As long as we work as a team

“A” Woo Hoo

“M” You’re up

Hey it’s really fun to be part of a team

Science Rules! - Lyrics

Science Rules!

Ever wonder why the sky is blue?

What makes your ears pop at a certain altitudes?

Curious where rocks and mountains get their shape?

Or how come your cotton candy always disintegrates?

There’s a bunch of different places you can look

But the answers all come in your science book

Where you can learn about everything under the sun

And the Jay the Science dude makes it lots of fun! Yeah…

Geology is rockin’!

Chemistry’s a blast!

Biology just grows on you!

Archeology takes you back!

Astronomy is far out!

Physics is just plain cool!

Any way you break it down

Science totally rules!

Just like sonar devices on a submarine 

Echolocation uses sound to see

Laws of motion are toolsthat are meant to explain

What makes objects act and react a certain way

You got natural, physical and behavioral

And theres even social and political

There’s an element of science in everything we do

And so many different ways to put science to use. Yeah…

Geology is rockin’!

Chemistry’s a blast!

Biology just grows on you!

Archeology takes you back!

Astronomy is far out!

Physics is just plain cool!

Any way you break it down

Science totally rules!

You’ve got ecosystems, organisms, fossils, cells and genes

You’ve got experiments and environments, principals and theories

You’ve got molecules and variables, observations and hypothesis

You’ve got balance and equilibrium, and don’t forget…relativity

No matter how you break it down

Science totally rules!

The Buckalope Elementary Theme - Lyrics

The Buckalope Elementary Theme

Whole day ahead of me

So much to explore

Can’t wait to step outside

And see what’s in store

Cause anything can happen

With the world at my feet

The journey begins

With Buckalope Elementary

I Said hello to Mr Rusty

And put an apple on his desk

Told him I remembered everything

He taught us from yesterdays class

He said “thank you little budday”

As he smiled curiously

What will we learn today

At Buckalope Elementary?

La da da, da da di da

La da da, da da di da

We’re reading and writing and we’re singing songs

And exploring new challenges that come along

Imagining we can be anything we want

When the school day is over

And the final bell has rung

Head on home, and share all of my

Excitement with everyone

And I think about tomorrow

And the possibilities

That await for me and all my friends

At Buckalope Elementary

La da da, da da di da

La da da, da da di da
