    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.

lyrics

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
