Dinosaurs lived a long time ago Long before you were born Dinosaurs lived a long time ago 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? Could they ride bikes? Drink out of straws? Dance? Could they play the piano? Do you think they could hula hoop? Do you think they could jump? Can you do the jump-a-saurus Jump jump jump jump jump-a-saurus I can do the jump-a-saurus Jump jump jump jump jump Jump jump jump jump jump Like a Jump-a-saur Jump jump jump jump jump Like a Jump-a-saur Jump jump jump jump jump Like a Jump-a-saur Jump jump jump jump jump Can you do the hop a saurus?

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

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

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

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

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

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
