    Furry alligator puppies, runaway socks, musical skeletons and flying ships are just a few of the wonders you’ll encounter in Sara Lovell’s fanciful world of songs for children and families. With her album “You’ve Got Me,” it is apparent that Sara is not so much singing to children as she is reporting back from a magical landscape she inhabits and loves. Whether she is vividly painting an alternate universe or simply describing everyday moments in life, Sara's authenticity never talks down to children, instead, it invites both kids and their parents to dream and play along with her. The lyrics move easily between whimsical and matter-of-fact, and are set to music that is at once sophisticated and immediately accessible.

Track Name: Furry Alligator Puppy
Furry Alligator Puppy (What I Dreamt This Morning)


Let me tell you about my dreams
As I’m waking from this slumber
It was something really strange
If only I could remember
Wait a minute now, it’s all coming back to me

There was a furry alligator puppy
A furry alligator puppy
And it came toward me with its big sharp claws
And I wasn’t sure that I should touch it
But I petted it and it wagged its little furry alligator puppy tail
And that’s what I dreamt about this morning
A furry alligator puppy

Let me tell you about my dreams
If I could only remember
It was something very strange
A really crazy adventure
Wait a minute now, it’s all coming back to me

I was flying like I was swimming
Flying like I was swimming
Flying through the air but low to the ground
I was moving my arms like the breast stroke
And I couldn’t seem to get much higher no matter how I tried
And that’s what I dreamt about this morning
Flying through the air like water

Tell me about your dreams - oh
What do you think they mean? – oh

There was a frog who gave me a key
A frog who gave me a key
And I tried it out on door after door
But none of the doors would open
And finally I came to a door perched at the top of a ladder
I turned the key and walked right through
And was sitting at my kitchen table
With a bowl of breakfast Os in front of me
And some Os had gotten on my nose and feet
And that’s what I dreamt about this morning
A frog who gave me a key

There was furry alligator puppy
A furry alligator puppy
And it came toward me with its big sharp claws
And I wasn’t sure that I should touch it
Track Name: I Can't Wait
I Can’t Wait

I can’t wait, I can’t wait
Oh my gosh I just can’t wait
Anticipation is too great
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait

There’s a party in a couple of days
Down the street and there’ll be cake
A trampoline and a piñata
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait

There’s a camp out overnight
With tents by the firelight
My mom said she couldn’t come
But now she thinks she might
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait

I can’t wait, I can’t wait
Oh my gosh I just can’t wait
Anticipation is too great
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait

I can’t seem to settle down
I try but I keep moving around
I run to the window or sit on the stairs

We’re going to the ocean soon
My mom said our trip’s in June
Right now that seems so far away
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait

I can’t wait, I can’t wait
Oh my gosh I can’t see straight
Anticipation is too great
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait

When I lie down to go to sleep
It starts in my toes and feet
Crawls up my legs
‘Til it makes me want to shriek

Oh my eyes are heavy now
Finally I’ve stopped buzzing (drifting into dreams)
Underneath the fluffy clouds (everything so sweet)
In a little boat I’m cruising
When a voice from nowhere says
“It’s only five more days”

I can’t wait, I can’t wait
Oh my gosh I just can’t wait
Anticipation is too great
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait

I can’t wait, I can’t wait
Oh my gosh I’m in a state
All I can do is agitate
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait
Track Name: Oh, I'm Bored
Oh I’m bored there’s nothing to do
Oh I’m bored there’s nothing to do
I guess I’ll just sit here and stare at my shoe
Oh I’m bored there’s nothing to do

Oh I’m bored, there’s nothing to do
Oh I’m bored, there’s nothing to do
It seems that my plight doesn’t matter to you
Oh I’m bored, there’s nothing to do

Oh I’m bored, there’s nowhere to go
Oh I’m bored, there’s nowhere to go
It’s raining outside and I wish it would snow
Oh I’m bored, there’s nowhere to go

There’s nothing to do, nowhere to go
There’s nothing to say and nobody to play with
I think I’ll just sit here complaining all day

Oh I’m bored, there’s no game to play
Oh I’m bored, there’s no game to play
I want my fun handed to me on a tray
Oh I’m bored, there’s no game to play

Oh I’m bored, there’s nothing to say
Oh I’m bored, there’s nothing to say
Blah blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah
Oh I’m bored, there’s nothing to say

There’s nothing to do, nowhere to go
There’s nothing to say and nobody to play with
I think I’ll just sit here complaining all day
Well maybe just for a minute or more
As I hear myself talk I’m getting quite bored
It seems now that I am the one who is boring
So I better get moving, I better do something
Get paper and scissors, some tape and some glue
Wear costumes and make up or play a kazoo
Create a new ending to this sorry story
Of “oh I’m bored there’s nothing to do”
Track Name: Dance Like There's Music in Your Pants
Dance Like There’s Music In Your Pants

Move it to the left, move it to the right
Move it to the center then you move it out of sight
Spin it around now then shake it
Spin it around now then shake it
Dance dance
Everybody stop
Dance dance
Everybody slide
Spin it around now then shake it
Spin it around now then shake it

Dance, dance, like there’s music in your pants, pants
Like there’s music in your pants, pants
Oh it’s time to take a chance, chance
Move your bottom and dance, dance, dance
Dance dance dance like there’s music in your shirt, shirt, shirt
Like there’s music in your shirt, shirt, shirt
You know it isn’t gonna hurt, hurt, hurt
Wave your arms and dance dance dance
Wave your arms and dance dance dance
Now there might be times when you feel a little sad
There might be times when you want to sit it out
Well that’s okay and when you’re ready

Dance, dance like there’s music in your hat, hat, hat
Like there’s music in your hat, hat, hat
What do you think about that, that, that
Shake your head and dance dance dance
Like there’s music in your shoes, shoes, shoes
Like there’s music in your shoes, shoes, shoes
Move anyway that you choose, choose, choose
Tap your toes and dance dance dance
Tap your toes and dance dance dance

Now there might be times when you feel a little sad
So why don’t you try to move your body now
You might just find that you’ll feel better

Move it to the left, move it to the right
Move it to the center then you move it out of sight
Spin it around now then shake it
‘Til the neighbors come knocking in the middle of the night
Everybody stop, everybody slide
Everybody turn around and show the other side
Spin it around now then shake it
Spin it around now then shake it

Baila con tus amigos, baila con tu familia
Manos al aire, bailamos en la calle
Track Name: I Can Tell We're Gonna Be Friends
I Can Tell We’re Gonna Be Friends

I can tell we’re gonna be friends
I can tell we’re gonna be friends

You’re kind to spiders and you like to find slugs
You like to sing at the top of your lungs
You like to play hide and seek in the trees
You pat my back when I scrape my knees

I can tell we’re gonna be friends
I can tell we’re gonna be friends

You make me laugh when you do a funny dance
When I ask to play you always give me a chance
We talk all day in a made up language
Trade at lunch the other half a sandwich

I can tell we’re gonna be friends
I can tell we’re gonna be friends

We make a silly painting with our feet
Feel the paint squish underneath
Dig streams and rivers in the sand
Make our own trumpets for the band
Build a cardboard rocket to the stars
Soar past Venus then past Mars

I can tell we’re gonna be friends
I can tell we’re gonna be friends

We mix potions, we chant spells
Toss our pennies in a wishing well

I can tell we’re gonna be friends
I can tell we’re gonna be friends

When I’m sad you sit beside me
And wait right there ‘til the clouds pass by
If I feel bad, well you remind me
Of everything that’s good inside

Now I know you and I are friends
I’m so glad that you’re my friend
I can tell we’re gonna be friends
Track Name: Run Fast Little Rabbit
Run Fast Little Rabbit

Run fast my little rabbit
Over green grass filled with daffodils
Explore the hills and streams
The stones and moss between
And feel the sun and rain that falls
On this sweet earth you love

Fly far my little rocket
To the corners of a distant planet
The stars will light your way
You’ll soar through night and day
Discovering the newest galaxy
As you map the sky

Worlds keep on turning
They spin and they fly as we look on
For all our yearning
These moments streak by
Don't close your eyes

Run fast my little rabbit
Over green grass filled with daffodils
Track Name: Don't Play the Piano With Your Nose
Don’t Play The Piano With Your Nose

Don’t play the piano with your nose, with your nose
Don’t play the piano with your nose
Don’t play the piano with your toes, with your toes
Don’t play the piano with your toes
‘Cuz if you play the piano with your nose or your toes
They might get stuck in the keys
Don’t play the piano with your nose or your toes
Just play with your fingers please, oh please
Just play with your fingers please
Track Name: Everybody Has a Body
Everybody has a body
Everybody has a body
With a head, a neck, shoulders and two arms
Torso, waist, bottom and two legs
Hands with fingers and feet with toes
Two eyes and a mouth and in the middle a nose

Everybody has a body
Everybody has a body

When you move around to run or jump
Wave your arms in the air for fun
Wiggle your hips and start to dance
Everybody wants to have a chance

Everybody has a body
Everybody has a body

And the songs that you hear with both your ears
The rainbow you see with your two eyes
The voice from your mouth that can sing and shout
And often from your nose a sneeze comes out

Everybody has a body
Everybody has a body

Your body is an animal you get to care for
Feed it yummy food and hear it roar
Give it lots of exercise, give it lots of love
And your body will be happy, yes it will be happy
You’ve got a brain for thinking, lungs for breathing
Heart to pump blood and to feel your feelings
Muscles and bones to help you move
Tongue and teeth to chew your food
And now your belly button has nothing to do
Everybody has a body
Everybody has a body

Hair on your head, hair elsewhere
Skeleton, knee caps, skin that’s bare
Ears drums, tear ducts, fingernails
Eyebrows, nostrils smelling smells
Proteins, nutrients travelling through
All the busy organs curled inside of you

Everybody has a body
Everybody has a body
Track Name: Midnight Secret Sock Party
The Midnight Secret Sock Party

At half past eleven
With everyone in bed
All sleeping peacefully
With no clue what lay ahead
One by one the socks arose
They slithered out of drawers
And under chairs and down the stairs
And out of the front doors

They came out of the houses
Slipping down the street
Marching over sidewalks
Sliding without feet

An owl on the lamppost
Saw the socks roll past
Slinking into the dark woods
Creeping through the tall grass

They came into a clearing
With a hundred blinking fireflies
All the shoeless socks
Underneath the starry skies
There was waltzing and tango
Two-step and mambo
It was one for all and all for one
At the midnight secret sock party
The midnight secret sock party

Said the little nighttime birdie
As she perched upon a branch
“They must be getting dirty”
How they skipped and danced
They marched out of the woods
And headed for the beach
Over the hills, over the sand
And finally out of reach

One by one they inched along
Closer to the sea
Tired now they made no sound
Those argyles, stripes and tweeds
They crawled toward the gangplank
Across the wooden docks
They went aboard the giant ship
Those many, many socks

And all around the world
They sailed on a cruise
Forever to be free
Of toes and of shoes

And if by chance you see them
You might not believe your eyes
All the shoeless socks
Underneath the starry skies
There’ll be waltzing and tango
Two-step and mambo
Oh it’s one for all and all for one
At the midnight secret sock party
The midnight secret sock party
Track Name: Tell Me Who's the Monster
Tell me who’s the monster

Tell me who’s the monster
Tell me who you are sir
Tell me where you’re hiding now
Are you somewhere in my house?

Are you big and extra hairy?
Yellow-eyed and scary?
Do you drool from stinky jaws
With pointy teeth and sharpened claws?
And do you growl or grunt or roar just because?

Tell me who’s the monster

Tell me who’s the monster
Tell me who you are sir
Tell me where you’re hiding out
Are you somewhere in my house?

Do you slink across the floor?
Are you behind the door?
Are you coming closer yet?
Are you underneath my bed?
And do you plan to show yourself, well go ahead

I’ll tell you what I’ll do
I’ll be a monster too
And I’ll be the one who’s scaring you

Now tell me who’s the monster
What do you think about that?
I’m glad we had this chat
It’s time for you to leave right now
Time for you to leave this town
Goodbye
Track Name: An Unbreakable Cord
Unbreakable Cord

There's a cord that ties you to me
Your heart to mine, an invisible string
A cord that always keeps us close
Connecting us wherever we may go

We found each other, yes it’s true
From all the others I chose you
An unbreakable bond for all of time
That makes me yours and makes you mine

It stretches from your bedroom
And all the way downstairs
When you’re off to school and out the door
To another world that you explore

There's a cord that ties you to me
It’s in your wings when you fly free
If you ever find yourself alone
Ever stray too far from home

Remember how I hold you
And feel the cord reach out
It carries your love here to me
And my love back to you, you’ll see

There's a cord that ties you to me
Your heart to mine, an invisible string

And at bedtime when we say good night
And it seems so hard and you squeeze me tight
Remember how our souls are tied
From close together or far and wide
You're safe in your bed and I’m in the kitchen
Making your lunch or finishing the dishes
And we'll cuddle together in the morning light
Our hearts beating close in time
For I am yours and you are mine

There's a cord that ties you to me
Your heart to mine, an invisible string
Track Name: You've Got Me
You’ve Got Me

When the day has been too long
And it’s hard to find a friend
When everything’s gone wrong
And the hurt is slow to mend

I’ll be the one you can lean upon
I’ll say the words “you’re not alone”

When the sky has lost the sun
And your heart is feeling grey
When you’re standing on your own
On an endless lonely day
You can reach for my hand
I’ll be there
You can call for a friend
And you turn around, oh you turn around
Now you know you’ve got me
You’ve got me
When you’re way out on a limb
Be exactly who you are
Some people might not understand
Keep shining, like a star

I’ll cheer you on and you’ll be strong
With every step you know you belong

You can call out my name
I’ll be there
You can reach for my hand
And you turn around, oh you turn around
Now you know you’ve got me
You’ve got me

When the world seems too unkind
You’ve got me
When the hill’s too steep to climb
You’ve got me
When the cold wind blows so strong
You’ve got me
When you think you can’t go on
You’ve got me
When you want to shout out loud
When you’re lost and when you’re found
When the walls are coming down
You’ve got me
When you fight to make things right
Even through the darkest night
Take my hand and hold on tight
You’ve got me
Track Name: Pajama Party
Pajama party

Time to put our PJs on
Get in line to brush our teeth
Telling stories under blankets
Shining flashlights from beneath
Someone roars to try and scare us
Don’t forget to pee

Pajama party

Marching up and down the hall
Run and hide behind the door
Mom or Dad peeks in to see us
All spread out across the floor
What’s that smell, is that your feet?
Giggling some more

Pajama party
Pajama party

Calling out for one last hug
Would someone leave the hall light on?
Quiet now, they’ll think we’re sleeping
Sneak out to the great beyond
Together on a secret mission
Discover where the ghosts have gone

Pajama party
This is how we play
Pajama party
Singing hey hey hey
Waking up to share our dreams
Pancake bears or toast with jam
Wave goodbye with smiling faces
And make a plan to do it all again

Pajama party
This is how we play
Pajama party
Singing hey hey hey
Track Name: Off to Bed We Go
Off To Bed We Go

Off to bed we go, to bed we go, to bed we go
La da da da da da
Off to bed we go, to bed we go, to bed we go
La da da da da da
We’ll put our pajamas on, our pajamas on, and brush our teeth
Off to bed we go, to bed we go, to bed we go

Up the stairs we go, the stairs we go, the stairs we go
La da da da da da
One by one we go, by two we go, by three we go
La da da da da da
Get our PJs on, get our PJs on without a fight
Then we’ll read a story, we read a story every night

Think of something we’re thankful for
And share it with each other
Think of something we might dream about
And I’ll sing a song for you
Get a hug and a kiss and a sweet dream wish
A hug and a kiss and a tickle or two
And I’ll blow more kisses from the door to you
Off to bed we go, to bed we go, to bed we go
La da da da da da
Off to bed we go, to bed we go, to bed we go
La da da da da da
Climb on in the tub, into the tub, get nice and clean
Off to bed we go, to bed we go, to bed we go

Think of something we’re thankful for
And share it with each other
Think of something we might dream about
And I’ll sing a song for you
Get a hug and a kiss and a sweet dream wish
A hug and a kiss and a tickle or two
And I’ll blow more kisses from the door
Twenty kisses then some more
I’ll blow more kisses from the door to you

Now in your bed you go, your bed you go, your bed you go
Lay your head right down, your head right down on your pillow
Track Name: Look at the Stars
Look At The Stars

You and me let’s go outside after it gets dark
To see what we can find, don't have to go too far
We need a clearing in the trees
Let’s look up, let’s look at the stars

You and me, we’ll go outside, write a story that’s all ours
We’ll float beyond the galaxy safe in our backyard
Let’s look up and look at the stars

On a really clear dark night you won't believe your eyes
The arms of the Milky Way illuminate the skies
Seven sisters and a swan, if you like I could go on

You and me let’s go outside after it gets dark
We’ll board a magic sailing ship our dreams will be in charge
We’ll need a clearing in the trees
Just look up and look at the stars

And the Hunter named Orion, broad shoulders in the sky
Three stars for his belt, three more for his sword
And one of them is a nebula
Then there's Cassiopeia, Queen upon her throne
Banished to the heavens by Poseidon long, long ago

You and me we’re held upon this spinning blue green ball
In a sea of light and dark, we really are so small
Yet it’s home and we belong from when the world was born
Just look up and look at the stars

We have a telescope and if you look real close
You might see the Sea of Tranquility
Where humans in a rocket, first landed on the moon
You might see Saturn’s rings, or a mighty horse with wings

And the Hunter named Orion, broad shoulders in the sky
Three stars for his belt, three more for his sword
And one of them is a nebula
Then there's Cassiopeia, Queen upon her throne
Banished to the heavens by Poseidon long, long ago

You and me side by side, breathing in the dark
I’ll take your hand in mine and place it on my heart
Do you think they see us now?
There goes a shooting star
Perhaps they heard us telling them how beautiful they are
Just look up and look at the stars
Look at the stars
Track Name: Skeleton Band
The Skeleton Band


When the sun has set and the spooky night is falling
You hear a lonely animal howling at the moon
After you're in bed and all your dreams are calling
Out there in the darkness you can hear a little tune

Your heart is beating fast, your eyes are getting wider
Your hands and feet are tingling, it’s hard to catch your breath
You creep into the night, one foot then the other
Careful not to make a sound you take another step

Then they blew the horn and beat the drum
And on the small guitar they strummed
They rattled, oh they rattled
As they danced the night away
They shook those skinny bones again
And played another song - amen
With instruments in hand
You hear the skeleton band

You take a closer look as you peer into the clearing
What you see before you, your eyes cannot believe
All around the fire, the players in a circle
Banded here together on this fateful winter’s eve

Spiders in their webs, casting creepy shadows
Bats are flying overhead though you remain unseen
Watching all the while these spindly musicians
Crows are cawing out as someone shakes a tambourine

And they blew the horn and beat the drum
And on the small guitar they strummed
They rattled oh they rattled
As they danced the night away
They shook those skinny bones again
And played another song - amen
With instruments in hand
You hear the skeleton band

And the violins played
For this midnight serenade
And the bones and branches swayed
In this moonlight escapade

When the moon is full and the night is almost over
Shifting in your bed, morning’s coming soon
Still within your dreams, underneath the covers
Out there in the darkness you can hear a little tune
Track Name: Night, Night Golden Sun
Night Night Golden Sun

Night night golden sun
Oh the day is done
Now the silver moon comes up
Night night golden sun
Sweet dreams everyone
Night night clouds and sky
And rainbows stretching high
Now the stars are peeking out
Night night clouds and sky
Sweetest lullaby

Now dreams are drifting over you
Oh hear the songs they sing
Of all the love that waits for you
And all the joy you bring


Night night to your room
And all who love you too
Now you close your sleepy eyes
Night night to your room
See you very soon
