Story

Looking out the window at a huge snowstorm falling, and sipping some hot cocoa, I imagined all the fun we’d have playing in the snow.  That was before the shoveling!

Lyrics

Skating, ice skating
I want to go skating with you
Sledding, downhill sledding
Let’s go sledding too!
Snowballs, throwing snowballs
I want to throw snowballs with you
Snowmen, building snowmen
Let’s build snowmen too!
It’s so much fun playing in the snow
Let’s bundle up and out we go,
I’ll be happy, no matter what we do
As long as I’m with you!

Stories, funny stories
I want to read stories with you
Cocoa, hot cocoa
Let’s drink cocoa too!
Pictures, painting pictures
I want to paint pictures with you
Dress-up, costume dress-up
Let’s play dress-up too!
It’s so much fun playing in the house
When it’s just too cold to go out,
I’ll be happy, no matter what we do
As long as I’m with you!

SOLO

Music, sweet music
I want to make music with you
Dancing, crazy dancing
Let’s go dancing too!
It’s so much fun in the soft snowy moonlight
Pajama party sleepover night
I’ll be happy, no matter what we do
As long as I’m with you!
Outside, or inside
I want to share my time with you
Playing, winter playing
Winter playing with you

Wee! Wah!

Story

An African song, I believe in the language of Bemba from Zambia, or perhaps a version of the huge 1986 hit called “Zangaléwa” by a makossa group from Cameroon called Golden Sounds. This song was the basis for Shakira’s megahit “Waka Waka” – the official song of the 2010 World Cup.  I bet she heard it on my CD first!

I See The Moon

Story

My daughter Sophia learned this from her Kindergarten teacher and has been singing it ever since. Way to go Mrs. Selman!

Lyrics

I see the moon, the moon sees me
Down through the leaves of the old apple tree
Please let the moon that shines on me
Shine on the ones I love

Over the mountains over the sea
That’s where my heart is longing to be
Please let the moon that shines on me
Shine on the ones I love
