    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

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
