about

Quirky, fun, kids music populated by garden fairies, dinosaur hunters and over enthusiastic chickens. Alice's songs are sweet, funny songs weaving simple acoustic guitar and beautiful melodies that kids love to sing along with and parents can enjoy too (even on repeat in the car!).

"This is not a CD of computer generated, teeny bopper, or cutsey kids songs…. it’s lovely, real, folksy music that is a joy to listen to" - picklebums.com

"most kid's music makes me feel like I'm going slightly bonkers - but this one was different. Songs of Connection by Alice Garrick is really good... Beautiful, well composed music and singing that was enjoyable to listen to - I would even be happy to have this one in the car on repeat for a long trip! Now that is saying something!!... I highly recommend Songs of Connection for any family - a gentle, fun CD for your kids to listen to, that won't send you round the bend.." - Barefoot Magazine Blog

Dinosaurs lived a long time ago
Long before you were born

Even before your dad was born

Do you think, do you think they might have been
Just a little like us?
Do you think, do you think they could have been
Just a little bit like us?

Track Name: Mad as a wet hen
I'm as quick as a bunny
I'm as sly as a fox
I'm as wise as an owl
I'm as strong as an ox

I'm as busy as a bee
I'm as quiet as a mouse
I'm as cross as a bear
I'm as hungry as a horse

And I'm as silly silly silly as a snake
And I'm as mad mad mad as a wet hen
Track Name: Phillip, Penny and Lily
Phillip, Penny and Lily,
They live up in fruit trees,
Apples, peaches they love to eat them,
Plums and apricots you can't beat them,
What a lovely place to be,
Sitting up high in an old fruit tree,
Fingers sticky and chin juicy,
Like Phillip, Penny and Lily
Track Name: Maya Fairy
Maya knows a secret, she might tell you
She knows where the fairies play
Look out the window and you'll see Maya
Dancing in the garden with the fairies all day

Garden Fairy, Maya fairy
Please show us the fairy dance
Maya fairy, sparkle fairy
Lead us in the fairy dance

Maya can do the fairy dance
Wiggle your fingers and spin around
Maya can do the fairy dance
Shake your hair and stomp the ground

Out in the garden, you'll see Maya
Dancing in the veggie patch,
Dancing with the chickens, dancing with the flowers
Dancing with the dog and dancing with the cat

Garden Fairy, Maya fairy
Please show us the fairy dance
Maya fairy, sparkle fairy
Lead us in the fairy dance

Maya can do the fairy dance
Wiggle your fingers and spin around
Maya can do the fairy dance
Shake your hair and stomp the ground

Garden fairy, Maya fairy
Sparkle fairy dance
Track Name: Mama says no
Mama said I can't ride my bike inside
And I cried and I cried and I cried
But mama said no
Mama said I can't wear my boots in the bath
But I don't want to take them off
Mama said no

One day when I'm bigger
I'll have a trampoline in my bedroom
And I see no good reason
Why I can't keep sand pies in the freezer
But mama says, mama says, mama says,
Mama says no

Doesn't she know
She always gets her way just 'cause she's bigger
And doesn't she see
That I have big ideas that I want to try out
How do I get myself to be heard
I feel like I've got no voice
When mama says no

Mama says I can't make mud pies in the sink
She doesn't seem to care what I think
She always says no, no, no
Mama says it's not polite to shout in the cafe
But no one hears me when I've something to say
Everyone says no

One day when I'm bigger
I'll have a trampoline in my bedroom
And I see no good reason
Why I can't keep sand pies in the freezer
But mama says, mama says, mama says,
Mama says no
Track Name: Hero has a cutie bum
Hero has cutie feet
She uses them to stand
And when she sees Autumn leaves
This is how they land

They go crunch crunch crunch crunch
Crunch crunch crunch crunch crunch

Hero has a cutie nose
She keeps it in the middle of her face
And when she's trying to keep real quiet
This is what it says

It goes Achoo Achoo Achoo Achoo
Achoo Achoo Achoo Achoo Achoo

Hero has cutie hands
She keeps them at the end of her wrists
And when her Mama says 'Keep still'
The tend to go like this

They go clap clap clap clap clap
Clap clap clap clap clap clap clap

Hero has a cutie bum
She keeps it at the back of her pants
Hero has her cutie bum
You should see it when she does a dance

It goes wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle fart
Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle fart
Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle fart
Wiggle wiggle wiggle fart fart
Track Name: Angus and the Dinosaurs
We’re hunting for dinosaurs
We’re looking in the back yard
We’re hunting for dinosaurs
We’re looking in the kitchen
We’re hunting for dinosaurs
We’re looking in the cubby
We’re hunting for dinosaurs
We’re looking under the couch

Angus have you seen a dinosaur
Angus have you seen a dinosaur
Help me call them, help me call them
Roar, roar, roar, roar

We’re hunting for dinosaurs
We’re looking in the bathroom
We’re hunting for dinosaurs
We’re looking in the bedroom
We’re hunting for dinosaurs
We’re looking in the wardrobe
We’re hunting for dinosaurs
We’re looking under the sink

Angus have you seen a dinosaur
Angus can you find a dinosaur
Help me call one, help me call one
Roar, roar, roar, roar

I can hear some stomping and some chomping
And a great big roar
I can hear some stomping and some chomping
And a great big roar

Angus I think we’ve found a dinosaur
Run, run, run, run
Angus I think we’ve found a dinosaur
Run, run, run, run

He’s a friendly dinosaur
Let’s chat
He’s a friendly dinosaur
Let’s roar
He’s a friendly dinosaur
Let’s stomp
He’s a friendly dinosaur
Let’s wiggle

Roar Roar Roar Roar
Track Name: Treats
You know I didn’t mean it
I don’t know how it happened
I went to the cupboard where you keep the treats
And I accidentally ate them

It really was too easy
They were just right there
I only had to stand with one foot on the on the bench
While I balanced on a chair

And I would have, if I could have,
Not eaten them all
But once I had one, it was lonely
And soon they were all gone

Those treats had sweat sweat voices
Calling to me
I heard those sweat sweat voices
They were calling to be free

You were saving them for special
I didn’t want to disappoint you
So I sealed up the the wrapper and put it on the shelf
I hoped you wouldn’t notice

And when the guests came
You got the treats to have with coffee
I hoped that they might reappear
Oh no, it’s empty

And I would have, if I could have,
Not eaten them all
But once I had one, it was lonely
And soon they were all gone

Those treats had sweat sweat voices
Calling to me
I heard those sweat sweat voices
They were calling to be free
Track Name: Goodnight baby
It’s cold outside and it’s warm in here
We’re snuggled up on an easy chair
I’ve read your story while you turned the pages

Sleepy head on my shoulder
In your dinosaur pajamas
Time to carry this sleep one to bed

Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight my baby
The world will still be here in the morning
Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight my baby
The world will be waiting for you in the morning

Twinkle, twinkle little star
Shining in the night, so far
A tiny light to lead into dreams

The sun has done what he does best
Now he knows it’s time to rest
He’ll be up and waiting for you in the morning

Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight my baby
The world will still be here in the morning
Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight my baby
The world will be waiting for you in the morning

Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
