Track Name: Somebody's Hero
Somebody's getting picked on. Somebody's getting put down.
Somebody's getting beat up and bullied
while the boys make a circle on the playground.

Somebody ought to stop this. Anybody can see it isn't right.
Somebody's getting hurt and humiliated
just because a bully started picking a fight.

I can stand here watching feeling smaller than a zero
Or I could take some action and become somebody's hero

Somebody's hero - I could make that play!
Somebody's hero - I could save the day!
Somebody's hero - How cool would it be
If somebody's thinking hero...
And thinking of me?

Somebody's getting cast out. Somebody's getting trash talked.
Somebody's getting dragged through the gossip
by the girls in the circle on the sidewalk.

Somebody ought to speak up. Anybody can see it isn't good.
Somebody's getting hurt and humiliated
just because a bully started saying she should.

And I can stand here listening feeling smaller than a zero
Or I could take some action and become somebody's hero

Somebody's hero - I could make that play!
Somebody's hero - I could save the day!
Somebody's hero - How cool would it be
If Somebody's thinking hero...
And thinking of me?

I don't care what it looks like. I don't care if haters gonna hate.
Somebody needs a friend right now; I'm stepping up to that plate.
No more silent watching. No more letting bullies win.
Somebody needs a hero. I'm stepping in!

Somebody's hero - I'm gonna get that done!
Somebody's hero - I’m gonna be the one!
Somebody's hero - My choice is clear
When Somebody needs a hero...
I volunteer!
Track Name: Quarks and Electrons
Every chunk of matter can be broken into parts
But there are no smaller pieces than quarks and electrons
Everything we touch, everything we see
Is different combinations of quarks and electrons

Formed by the Big Bang
Cooled into atoms of hydrogen and helium
Forged by stars into Carbon and Oxygen
Blown away by supernovae, strewn across the universe,
Coalesced again into bodies like Planet Earth

Forming into patterns that can run around and replicate
Evolving into thinking things that know themselves and contemplate
Fourteen billion years they’ve been coming along
Now quarks and electrons wrote this song!

Quarks and electrons
Quarks and electrons

Every chunk of matter can be broken into parts
But there are no smaller pieces than quarks and electrons
Everything we touch, everything we see
Is different combinations of quarks and electrons

Other stuff is unseen
It has to be there somewhere when we add up all the gravity
We call it dark matter and it's pulling on the galaxies
And something else is pushing, making everything expand
We call it dark energy 'cause we don't understand

Whatever that stuff is it makes up nearly all the universe
Just 4% of everything is stars, planets, moons and us
Yet even though it seems we're only tagging along,
Quarks and electrons wrote this song!

Quarks and electrons
Quarks and electrons

Quarks and electrons forming into atoms
Evolving into DNA and complicated proteins
Proteins make neurons and neurons make a brain
The brain is the organ that can reason and explain about

Quarks and electrons
Quarks and electrons
Quarks and electrons wrote this song!
Track Name: Vaccination
Come on Mamma
Come on Daddy
Immunize for the safety of your baby
Give him what he needs to keep affliction away!

Hepatitis
Mumps and measles
Polio, pertussis and rubella
Children need not suffer these diseases today!

It's a gift! Vaccination!
It's a blessing! Vaccination!
Every childhood vaccination means protection from disease
It’s safe! Vaccination!
It’s effective! Vaccination!
Every childhood vaccination puts a parent's mind at ease!

The vaccine in me
Prepares my body
The antigen is showing my natural defenses
A microscopic mug shot of a thug!

It tells my B cells
Remember this critter
So they’ll start making the needed antibody
To help my system identify and kill that bug!

It's a gift! Vaccination!
It's a blessing! Vaccination!
Every childhood vaccination means protection from disease
It’s safe! Vaccination!
It’s effective! Vaccination!
Every childhood vaccination puts a parent's mind at ease!

I’m glad I’m a child
Of the 21st century
I can be smart about on what goes on inside of me
Thanks to science
We know all about infections
I can get protection with a handful of injections!

Hepatitis
Mumps and measles
Polio, pertussis and rubella
Children need not suffer these diseases today!

Come on Mamma
Come on Daddy
Immunize for the safety of your baby
Give her what she needs to keep affliction away!

It's a gift! Vaccination!
It's a blessing! Vaccination!
Every childhood vaccination means protection from disease
It’s safe! Vaccination!
It’s effective! Vaccination!
Every childhood vaccination puts a parent's mind at ease!
Track Name: Pet Rock
A blue moon rises at midnight
Hound dog’s howling the news
A kitten on drums begins to play
A parakeet hits the key of A
A terrier digging a saxophone is blowing the blues

They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
Rock and roll all night!

The garden gates are all gaping open
The music calls them into the street
The potbelly pig is strumming the strat
Iguana on bass, harmonica rat
They know the sound of freedom is a rock n roll beat

They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
Rock and roll all night!

Now no one in the neighborhood is getting any sleep
Don’t even think to bother with the counting of the sheep
The sheep are in the cul-de-sac underneath the stars
Jamming with the moon dogs ringing their guitars

May as well get up and go outside
Although your mama may not understand
You don’t wanna miss the dogs and cats
Turtles and ferrets and frogs and rats
Dancing to the music of the Pet Rock Band

They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
They do the pet rock - rock and roll!
Rock and roll all night!
Track Name: One and Only Vole
The moment I first caught your scent I knew
I wanted to addict myself to you
We spent the day together making crazy rock n roll
Now you are my one and only vole

You are my one and only vole
You are my one and only vole (2x)

Now every time your odor hits my brain
My dopamine receptors go insane
Love has taken over and I think I've lost control
Now you are my one and only vole

You are my one and only vole
You are my one and only vole (2x)

Science says our bond is made with chemistry
Oxytocin’s all it’s fashioned of
I just know that you’re the only vole for me
And chemicals don’t mean I’m not in love

So let us build a burrow filled with pups
I’ll stick around and help you raise them up
I am bonded to you babe cause that’s the way I roll
You know you are my one and only vole

You are my one and only vole
You are my one and only vole (2x)
