Annabelle's Driving Song Aaah, aaah, aaah For a hundred miles ahead there's a desert track There's no turning off and there's no turning back Annabelle, you're coming along We're singing your driving song Got your hands on the wheel and the wind in your hair Where do you think you're going, do you even care? Annabelle, been driving so long We're singing your driving song We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you Annabelle There's a rhino in the road and his face is a sight The zebra's not crossing but the tigers might Annabelle, Annabelle The snakes in the trees and the monkeys too There's more animals than a day at the zoo Annabelle, Annabelle We're on Safari with you For a hundred miles ahead there's a desert track There's no turning off and there's no turning back Annabelle, you're coming along We're singing your driving song We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you We're on Safari with you Annabelle, Annabelle Annabelle, Annabelle Got your hands on the wheel and the wind in your hair Where do you think you're going, do you even care? Annabelle, been driving so long Driving so long

Morning Song 03:07
Morning Song You know the reason babe why I love you Because you make all my dreams come true If I'm with you I know things can't go wrong See you in the morning with my morning song You know the reason babe why I love you You make me happy when I'm feeling blue With you I know that I will always belong See you in the morning with my morning song See you in the morning with my morning song When I get down and I feel so sad All the things I hear well they drive me mad You sit beside me and you hold my hand I feel like the luckiest guy in the land You know the reason babe why I love you You whisper softly all those words so true I've always known that you're my only one See you in the morning with my morning song See you in the morning with my morning song See you in the morning with my morning song You know the reason babe why I love you Because you make all my dreams come true If I'm with you I know things can't go wrong See you in the morning with my morning song

Coated In Mud You throw the mud It's the mud that sticks You got enough mud for a wall of bricks Well I'm sick of you and all your tricks You're an evil man You're an evil man You're an evil man Draw a line in the sand Well sticks and stones May break my bones But your mud will never hurt me And if I was asked to put it into words Well words desert me Well words desert me You cannot hurt me Aaahh As you prepare With your gun in the air To fire off another salvo of abuse There's a hole in your bucket of hate You're leaking like a weak excuse Like a weak excuse Oh what's the use Oh what's the use Oh what's the use Oh what's the use Aaahh Well everybody knows all you want is a war Yeah everybody knows who you're fighting for You're aiming your bombs at a distant shore And your guns at the guy next door At the guy next door Aaahh Aaahh Aaahh Aaahh Well sticks and stones May break my bones But your mud will never hurt me And if I was asked to put it into words You cannot hurt me

Arthur, It Is! Over the road There hopped a toad The wrinkles on his back were all Grey, green and gold Over the hill He stands there still The mission of his journey was Meant to do me ill Arthur was his name Poison was his game The venom he delivered Burnt like a flickering flame Arthur was his name Poison was his game The venom he delivered Burnt like a flickering flame Arthur was his name Poison was his game The venom he delivered Burnt like a flickering flame Over the road There hopped a toad The wrinkles on his back were all Grey, green and gold Over the field Arthur would not yield The wickedness of his purpose was Still to be revealed Arthur was his name Poison was his game The venom he delivered Burnt like a flickering flame Go away, Arthur! Be gone! Hop off, Arthur! Go away! That's the last I want to see of you, Arthur You poisonous toad Yeah, goodbye, Arthur!
