Track Name: Up To Something Good
(Richards / Arbuckle)

V1
It’s a bird, It’s a plane
A girl and a game
No Lois Lane (and)
No-o Robin
Nothing to fear when she’s near

Tying her cape
Mask on her face
Saving the day
From all the rotten
The world needs a smile and it’s here

PRE 1
In a single bound
Look what she’s doing now

CH
She’s Up To Something Good
Whenever she’s around then
Life feels the way it should
It’s amazing how
When everything is in a mess
That’s when it’s
It’s the best, yeah
She’s Up To Something Good

V2
One of those days
Dizzy and dazed
The whole world’s a maze
And you’re the hamster
Chasing your tail, ‘round a wheel

Life’s loop-di-loops
Puddles of goop
Strawberries boots, her go-to answer
Try it and see how good it feels

PRE 2
In a single a bound
Shazam, splat, pow

CHORUS
Instrumental Bridge
CHORUS REPEAT
Track Name: I Love You
V1
I’ve got a secret
And I don’t want to keep it
Can I give it away to you?

If we get a little closer
Like a bee gets to clover
Can I give you a clue?

It’s something that you do

CHORUS
Ba ba baa
Ba ba baa
I love you

Ba Ba Baa
Ba Ba Baa
Dreams do come true

Ba ba baa
Ba ba baa
Ba ba ba baa

V2
If everybody
Made love instead of money
The sky would be a little more blue

If they felt the butterflies
Looking in another’s eyes
The world from love’s point of view

They’d be singing too

CHORUS

BR
I love you, only you
And I know
You love me too
(4x)


CHORUS
Ba ba baa
Ba ba baa
I love you

Ba Ba Baa
Ba Ba Baa
Dreams do come true

Ba ba baa
Ba ba baa
I love you

Ba Ba Baa
Ba Ba Baa
Dreams do come true

Ba ba baa
Ba ba baa
I love you
Track Name: Love Is The Way
V1
Life a puzzle
So much trouble
To make all
The pieces fit

This way, that way
Where or when?
So close, uh-oh
Missed again
Always opposite

PRE
Trying to get closer, so yer
Pulling the string
Harder we try
The more it’s unraveling

CH
Ooo, ooh ah
La, la la
Love is the way we go together

Ooo, ooh ah
La, la la
Love is the way we go we’ll go forever

V2
Deep, dark secrets
Zeis zoom sees it
Stops all the whistle blows

Keep your head stuck in the sand
1,2,3, Strike up the band,
Who’s got the emperor’s clothes?

PRE 2
Spinning around, round, round
A flower child
Sowin’ the seeds of love
Every once in a smile
CHORUS

SCAT BRIDGE

CHORUS REPEAT

TAG
Love is the way
la, la, la...
Track Name: Take Me Away
V1
Hard to see
Hard to breathe
Hard to believe
In anything

CH
Take me away
Pack your bags
Let’s go today

Let’s be kids and play
Run, run, run, before we turn grey
Take me away

V2
Ride the wind
Like a wave
Hold my hand
And say, “Don’t be afraid”

CH
Take me away
Pack your bags
Let’s go today

Let’s stay kids and play
Run, run, run, before we turn grey
Take me away


BR
Just like pretending
Pick who you wanna be

I’ll be the mountain
You be the sea

Just like pretending
Pick who you wanna be

I’ll be the mountain
You’ll be the sea
You’ll be the sea...

REPEAT CH
Track Name: Misplaced Love
V1
I thought I put it
Someplace safe
But I caught a glimpse of it
Run-ning away

Would have been better
Swept under the rug
Oh where, Oh where
Is my Mis-placed Love

V2
With a cheeky bird
Up in a tree?
Cajoled from its cage
Finally free?

TAG 2
One little crumb down a dangerous path
Will it find it’s way back?
Oh, love, love, love

CHORUS 1
Funny how it’s only found when it’s lost
Makes the world’ go ‘round
And my heart stop
Where, oh where is my
Misplaced love?

V3
Last time I had it
There came you
A stranger whose danger-
ous “How do you do?”

A punch above my weight
Without kid gloves
Tied on the tracks all because of
Love, love, love,

CHORUS 2

SOLO / SCAT

CHORUS
It’s the little riddle
I’m in the middle of:
A bit of bad is good
And here’s the rub
Love is blind
So hard to find
Misplaced Love!

La, la, la ,la

Funny how it’s only found when it’s lost
Makes the world’ go ‘round
And my heart stop
Where, oh where is my
Misplaced love?

So, have you seen my misplaced love?
Have you seen my misplaced love?
Track Name: The Ride
V1
What, am I crazy or what to be thinking this
But what do you call what I’m feeling when we kiss
Oooh, Oooh

I don’t mean to be jumping to anything
No, I’m not doing nothing, just want to sing
Oooh, Oooh

CH
Let’s take the ride
Cause this road
Is wide op-en
Jump inside
And we’ll fly
And we’ll keep on goin’

V2
Somehow you know how to hold every part of me
You’re on a roll doin’ what comes naturally

Won’t let the sun say we’re done with the perfect day
Who’s gonna miss us if we runaway

REPEAT CH

BR
I’ve always wanted to see California
They’ve got cowboys and palm trees and it’s warm, yeah

REPEAT CH
Track Name: Run For The Sunshine
No make-up
Just a tan on my face
Cut-off jeans
Bikini strings over the waist

The way my legs stick to the seat
Been waiting all winter for the end of this week
I’m ready, so bring on the heat

CH
Let’s make a
Run for the sunshine
Leave my troubles behind
Yeah, yeah, feeling fine
Life’s about enjoying the ride
Make a run for the sunshine

VERSE 2
Coconut
Floating over the breeze
Blankets, BBQ
Surfboards and frisbees

Riding along on the strand
Shining bodies and toes in the sand
Hardly working, as hard as we can

CHORUS

BR
Something about the how the light lays
Across the water
Yesterday fades
And all I want for tomorrow

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: Waiting To Say Hello Again
V1
Trumpets
Ta - ta - tet
Oom-pah
Clarinet

Fine parade
A sunny day
Sticky cheeks and
Lemonade

Block towers
Planting seeds
Robots
Dirty feet

The birds we were
Saved the day
Until we had to
Fly away

CH
Waving goodbye
But I don’t understand
Searching the sky
As the train rounds the bend

Waiting to say hello again
Waiting to say hello again

V2
A tree falls
Where’s the sound?
The rosey
We ring around?

Salad days
Left behind
For stand up straight
And stand in line



The snakes have
have left their nooks
for busywork
and important books

Bigger dreams
Than fairy tales
Starfish
Wanting to be whales

CH
Waving good bye
But I
don’t understand
Searching the sky as the train rounds the bend
Waiting….

BRIDGE
I’ll call a dragon
To show you the way
To hold your hand
In the far off land
Of friends to be made

Where’s the good part
In this thing called good bye?
No one is talking
And I don’t know why

((Instrumental))
V3
Smiles in a treasure box
Memories a sly fox
The last to leave the fine parade
Watch the petals swept away

CH
Waving goodbye
But I don’t understand
Searching the sky
As the train rounds the bend

Waiting to say hello again
Waiting to say hello again
Track Name: Pumblechook
Instrumental
Track Name: Somebody Somewhere
V1
Trip
Through life
On a high wire
Who’ll catch me
When I fall?

Skip
(to) The end
To miss the fire
And crash the crystal ball

PRE
Fickle clouds of fate
Come and, blow me away

CH
Somebody, somewhere
Is who I am
Slingshot
Off a rubber band

Stepping 1 forward and 2 back
Love - it’s like heart attack

Somebody somewhere else
Is gonna
Feel it too // (Is it you?)
Ba-doo, ba-doo….

V2
Staring
At you while you sleep
I miss you like you’re gone

Waking up
It’s just a dream
Where do I belong?


PRE
The bubble on my tongue
ahh the taste of fun

CHORUS

BRIDGE (PRE)
Fickle clouds of fate
Come and, blow me away

CHORUS REPEAT
Track Name: The Open
V1
Bull’s eye
Red on my chest
More than skin deep
Wake from a dark sleep

V2
Come alive
Breaking through the dirt
Hold up my own sky
Jump, fall or fly

PRE 1
Take a breath
Take a/ one step, into the

CH
Open
I - I - I, I’m
Goin’
Fall or fly

In the open
Watch me fly
I’m Goin’
(And) I’ll stand out here, in
The open

V3
Hard to find
Diamond in the rough - est
Places you’re always in
Days lost….to the wind

PRE 2
Life, the art
Leave a mark


CH 2

BRIDGE / BROKEN DOWN CHORUS

OUTRO CHORUS
In the open
I - I - I, I’m
Goin’
On my way

To the open
I - I - I, I’m
Goin’
Stand right here
In the open

In the open
