Track Name: Beanstalk Jack
This is the story about Beanstalk Jack
Lives with his mama in a little old shack
He went out walking and he hasn't come back
Don't you worry about Beanstalk Jack

He goes up, up, up
Up so high
Up, up, up
To the sky
Up, up, up
Don't know why,
Now his head's in the clouds
And he's fancy free
Taller now than the tallest tree
Head's in the clouds
And he's fancy free
Track Name: Daydream
Daydream by a stream
Sitting in a sun beam
Criss cross apple-sauce
Wish the fish were ice cream

Daydream by a stream
Sitting in a sun beam
Criss cross apple-sauce
Wish the stones were snow cones

Daydream by a stream
Sitting in a sun beam
Criss cross apple-sauce
Wish the sky was cherry pie

Daydream by a stream
Sitting in a sun-beam
Criss cross apple-sauce
Wish the fish were ice cream

Lazy Jack kicking back
Wish I had a little snack
Knick knack paddy whack
Momma gave me chores to do
I'm hiding and I won't go back
Track Name: Let Me Be
Jack oh Jack can’t you quit your dreaming
(Oh mamma won't you let me be!)
(Jack oh Jack can’t you hear me screaming)
(I heard you mamma can’t you let me be!)

Your dear old daddy, rest his soul,
(Oh mamma can’t you let me be!)
Left us in an awful hole
(Oh, mamma can’t you let me be!)

The rent is due and the cupboard’s bare
Got no money anywhere
Got the market and sell that cow
Gotta pay that landlord rent somehow

Sell that cow boy sell that cow
Sell her now boy sell her now
Track Name: Milky Cow
Oh milky cow
Make your goodbyes
To the grass and the sun and the blue, blue skies
We’re travelin’ down
To the mean ol’ town
To sell you in the market
We’re travelin’ down
To the mean ol’ town
To sell you in the market

Oh milky cow
Don’t you make no fuss
Come along with jack-o
We’re travelin’ down
To the mean old town
To sell you in the market

I have no voice I have no choice
Don’t look at me with those sad eyes
We’re traveling down
To the mean old town
To sell you in the market
We’re travelin’ down
To the mean ol’ town
To sell you in the market

Oh milky cow
I’ll miss you so
And yer moo and milk but you have to go
We’re travelin’ down
To the mean old town
To sell you in the market
Oh, we’re travelin’ down
To the mean old town
To sell you in the market
Track Name: Bestest Bargain
Say, there young man
Don’t look so sad
Whatever your troubles
It ain’t so bad
I have a surprise
Right here with me
The most marvelous things
You’ve ever seen
Let’s make a trade
Right fair and square
The bestest bargain
...anywhere

I see by your face
You’re taking that cow
To the market in town
That i can’t allow
Don’t trust your luck
In that den of thieves
They’ll rob you blind
As quick as you please
Let’s make a trade
Right fair and square
The bestest bargain
...anywhere

Now rest your eyes
On these magic beans
The most marvelous things
You’ve ever seen
Let’s make a trade
Right fair and square
The bestest bargain
...anywhere

That’s right my boy
Now give her to me
Your troubles are over
You’re lucky as can be
You give me this cow
And you run along
I gave you my beans
For a cow and a song
Now thats a great trade
Right fair and square
The bestest bargain
...anywhere

Before she misses me

Look at all that we got now
Wait til momma sees her Jack
Magic beans in his sack,
Wait til momma sees her Jack
Magic beans in his sack.
Track Name: Look at Us Now
Jack, Oh Jack, son, what have you done
You’ve ruined us both you foolish one
I sent you off to sell our cow
And look at us look at us look at us
Look at us now

Momma, momma look what I done
Say ain’t I your clever son
You sent me off to sell our cow
But look at us look at us look at us
Look at us now.

Magic beans for you and me
Magic beans is all I see.

Jack, Oh jack, son, what can I say,
We had a chance and you threw it away
The rent is due and we just can’t pay
Chuck those beans in a pile of hay
I sent you off to sell our cow
And look at us looks at us look at us
Look at us now.

Magic beans for you and me
Magic beans is all is see
Magic beans for you and me,
Magic beans is all I see.

Momma, momma, what’ll we do
He said we’d be rich but it just wasn’t true
Wish I’d never sold our cow
And look at us look at us look at us
Look at us now

Jack, Oh Jack, son
Get you to bed
Without that gold
We’ll never get a head
I wish you just
Sold that cow
Look at us, look at us, look at us
Look at us now

Magic beans for you and me
Magic beans is all I see

Momma takes them beans
And she throws them away
On the ground they lay
Where young Jack would play
Oh look at them now
Look at them now
Look at them now
Track Name: Upseedoodledo
It’s a one step two and upseedoodledoo
It’s a look out below how high can you go
It’s a two step three hididdledeedee
I’m going up there to see what I can see

Been climbing so long
Can’t see the ground
Been singing this song
Cause it’s a long way down
I don’t want to fall and break my head
Gonna keep on climbing higher instead

It’s a one step two and upseedoodledoo
It’s a look out below how high can you go
It’s a two step three hididdledeedee
I’m going up there to see what i can see

My arms are tired
And my feet are sore
But i don’t care
Gonna climb up some more
I don’t want to fall and break my head
Gonna keep on climbing higher instead

It’s a one step two and upseedoodledoo
It’s a look out below how high can you go
It’s a two step three hididdledeedee
I’m going up there to see what i can see

I’m almost there
I can see the top
My momma’s calling but i don’t want to stop
Don’t want to fall and break my head
Gonna keep on climbing higher instead

I’m at the top
It’s a world so bright
Castle in the sky what a great grand sight
I don’t want to fall and break my head
Gonna knock on the door of that castle instead

It’s a one step two and upseedoodledoo
It’s a look out below how high can you go
It’s a two step three hididdledeedee
I’m going up there to see what i can see

Now slap your legs
And clap you hands
Stomp your feet
Boogy on down just do it to the beat
Now your hands up high
And you put em down low
Walk around your friends
There you go
Going back to back
That’s a do-si-do.
Track Name: It's a Big World
Here’s a big castle
Here’s a big big door
Like nothing you have ever seen before
Look what i found
It’s a hallowed ground
It’s a beautiful beat it’s a brand new sound,

There’s music in the air
And the devil may care
It’s a paradise it’s a land so fair
It’s a big world
It’s a big big world
It’s a big world
It’s a big world...

There’s fountains of honey
There’s piles of money
There’s no rain here it’s always sunny

It’s all so fancy
And it’s all so fine
It’s all expensive and none of it’s mine

There’s music in the air
And the devil may care
It’s a paradise it’s a land so fair
It’s a big world
It’s a big big world
It’s big world
It’s a big big world

The air smells sweet
Every breath is a treat
Forget my troubles i’ll be dancing in the street

Knock knock knock
Is there anybody there
I’m looking for luck have you any to spare
Knock knock knock
Is there anybody there
I’m looking for luck have you any to spare

It’s a big world
It’s a big big world
It’s a big world
It’s a big world

Where's my meat girl
Where's my drink
Pots are cold, girl
What should I think

Something's strange,
Something's strange
Something's strange here,

Lay you down now,
Lay you down.
Forget your troubles,
Lay you down.
Hush now, hush,
Don't you frown,
Dream a dream,
Lay you down.

Who is here girl in my house
I hear the breathing of a little mouse
Something's strange,
Something's strange
Something's strange here,
Something's strange

Hush now, hush now
Don't you frown
Dream a dream lay you down.

I smell a rat,
A sly little pest
What about that
How can I rest

Hush now, hush now
Don't you frown
Dream a dream lay you down.

Hush hush
Don't you frown
Dream a dream and lay you down

Lay you down
Lay you down
Forget your troubles don't you frown
Dream
Dream
And lay you down.

Hush.

Hush now, hush now
Lay you down
