Track Name: Hana Kamea, Roch Gallo - Joy in You
(there is) JOY IN YOU
Hana Kamea copyright 2015 (SOCAN)

When you’re feelin kinda blue
And you don’t know what to do
And you can’t find any love or truth
If you look you will find
You don’t have to feel so blue
Just find all the JOY hiding in you…

CHORUS:
There’s Joy in You
There’s Fun in You
Happy little Cells dancing all through you!
Are you hiding smiles?
Come out and play for awhile!

Is it in your dancing toes? Or up inside your nose?
Is it in your puffy cheeks? Shaking free behind your knees?

There’s Joy in You (Can you feel it?)
There’s Fun in You (Can you feel it?)
Happy little Cells dancing all through You! (Can you find it? )
Are you hiding smiles?
Come out and play for a while!

Is it tucked behind your ears, or hiding in your tears?
Can you feel it under your skin?
Can you let more good feelings in?

There’s Joy in You
There’s Fun in You
Happy little Cells dancing all through You,
Are you hiding smiles, ya maybe, oh come out and play for a while!

Feel it shining out from your eyes,
Sparkling as bright as the sky.
Are you hiding some giggles inside? (sound of kids giggling)
Let all your bubbles fly!

There’s Joy in You
There’s Fun in You
Happy little Cells dancing all through you!
Are you hiding smiles?, oh, come out and play for a while!

It’s in there…somewhere, keep looking..(everywhere)! There it is…deep inside of you.
It's way down deep inside of you (OOOO),

Lifting your hands and your hearts,
Jumping up for a fresh start!
Is there happy hiding in your belly
Can you wobble it like jelly?

Let’s get a little high, let’s get a lot high, on all those happies inside
Are you hiding smiles? Oh, where are you hiding your joy?
Where are you hiding joy?
Where are you hiding your joy?

Be My Mirror by Hana Kamea copyright 2015

Will you be my mirror, a mirror of me?
Following my body, with all its beauty!
Then I’ll know you see me, and feel my feelings
Will you be my mirror, a mirror for me?

I’m a tree, I’m a bird, I love to be seen, I love to be heard
I’m and animal moving free, join me in the magic of my dancing body (interlude)

CHORUS
Will you by my mirror, a mirror of me?
Following the shapes of my body and face
Then I’ll know you see me, and feel my feelings
Will you my mirror, a mirror for me?

BRIDGE:
Watch how I move, its tells you what I need
See who I am, I have a story in my body
Moving all the mystery, the mystery of me.

CHORUS:
Will you be my mirror? A mirror for me?
Show me that you understand what I’m feeling.
Move with me, wont’ you move with me?
It feels so good to be seen.
There is magic in my dancing body.

Bigger Love (lyrics copyright Hana Kamea 2016)

CHORUS
If I was going to show you my love, ya
If I was going to show you my love

VERSE
I could give you a great big, a great big hug,
And I could curl my body into yours really snug

CHORUS
Ya if I was going to show you my love
If I was going to show you my love

VERSE
I’d scoop you up in my arms for a rock
And we could rock and roll and roll and rock

CHORUS
If I was going to show you my love
If I was going to show you all my love

BRIDGE:
I could put my hand on the skin of your heart
And hold your body in my hands, like sculpting art
I could change my words not to hurt so much
And tell you what I’m feeling instead of acting like a fart
Oh, oh, oh..

CHORUS
Ya if I was born to show you a bigger love
I was born to show you bigger love

CHORUS
If I was born to show you my love
If I was born to show you my love…
If I was born…..to show you my love
If I was born to show you bigger love
Track Name: Hana Kamea, Roch Gallo - Gazing at You
Lyrics by Hana Kamea copyright 2010

Gazing at You

When I gaze at you
When I look for you
I look to see what is whole and true

When you look at me
I soften to receive
And greet you tenderly

I am right here, not going anywhere, so you can feel safe everywhere
We meet somewhere in-between
Free to be, free to be, free to be, you and me

Dancing with our eyes, there is so much surprise,
Let’s stay close and gaze for a long, long while
(repeats)

BELIEVE…
Words and Music by Roch Gallo

Come with me and you will see
How there is so much more
More than anything you have seen before.

It’s amazing what you’re sure to find
If we only open up our minds

Take my hand and understand there’s so much more around
Secret treasures just waiting to be found

You can have whatever you conceive
Anything at all
When you believe!

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la..
(its amazing what we are sure to find, when we only open up our minds)

Miracles appear before our eyes
Every moment makes us realize
There’s power in the thoughts we think
And everything we say and do

So watch the magic unfold
Cause its true
You can have whatever you conceive
Don't forget the key
Is to believe!

You can have it all when you believe.

Hey, we gotta go, gotta go…little turtles
I see you’re moving slow
Cause its fun to be a turtle
Moving super slow! woo hoo

Can you find your turtle feet? Ya they can tap, tap, tap
They can skip, skip, skip, they can dance dance to the beat, woo hoo
They can dance to the beat!

Hey, we gotta go, gotta go, little turtles (oo wah wah background vocals)
Come out of your turtle shell!
You can stretch your neck as long as you please, you can bend right at your knees, woohoo, you can bend right at your knees!

(instrumental)

Come on, come on, my little turtles
You can puff your turtle chest!
Let’s see how quick you can walk and skip
We’re gonna head out on the beat, woo-hoo,
We’re head out on the beat
And walk down to the street
Where you never know who you’ll meet
It can be so very sweet!
To feel your little turtle feet

repeat
Track Name: Hana Kamea, Roch Gallo - Animals
I Love Animals (lyrics and melody Hana Kamea, arrangement Roch Gallo)

Lyrics:

I love animals, yes I do!
Some look scary, and some are cute.
They’re our friends and our family too!
So let’s move and dance with them, me and you…

First, touch your head and find your tail
Sink down to the ground, tucked in like a snail!

(SLOWLY)
Rolling slug, rolling slug, rolls and slugs..
Rolling right into a puddle of mud! (yuck! slug sound)

Slithering Snake, Slithering Snake, Sss, Sss, Ssss…
Slither in the sand and feel snaky in your hands (snake sound: ssss)

Slippery Fish, Slippery Fish, Swish, Swish, Swish
Swimming through the sea, Swish your head and swish your feet (water sound)

Freckled Frog, Freckled Frog, Hop, Hop, Hop
Freckled Frog, Ribbet (sound), hops so high…. That she can’t Stop! (ribbet sound)

CHORUS
I love animals, yes I do!
Some look scary, and some are cute.
They’re our friends and family too!
We can feel them in our bodies, me and you…

Kitty Kat Kitty Kat, Meow, Meow, Meow
Kitty Kat, licks his paws and crawls all around.

Puppy Dog, Puppy Dog, Bow Wow Wow
Puppy Dog, Shakes her tail to say howdy howdy how!

Elephant Trunk, Elephant Trunk, Honk, Heavy, Honk
Elephants swing your trunks up and down to the funk! Honk!

Hurried Horse, Hurried Horse, Trot, Trot, Trot
Gallops with her legs so fast, (sound of galloping legs comes in here) then slows to find her spot! (pause as if stopping)

CHORUS:
I love animals, yes I do!
Some look scary, and some look cute.
They’re our friends and family too!
They are here inside of us, me and you…

Busy Bee, Busy Bee, Buzz, Buzz, Buzz (extend Buzzz for a while, so the Bee’s can fly around the room), flies with her sticky honey feet into a flower’s fuzz.

Spiders on their backs with six furry legs (Ah! Spoken in scared voice)
Scurrying over the floor all over the place!

Woodpecker Birdy goes Tap Tap Tap
Tap Tap, Tap Tap, Tap to get some sap!
(sounds of woodpecker tapping)

Eagle Bird, Eagle Bird spreads her wings
Reaches her arms out wide to fly and sing!

CHORUS
I love animals, yes I do!
Some look scary and some are cute…
They’re our friends and family too!
So let’s take care of them, me and you
Yes better care of them, me and you
(SLOWLY) cause we are animals too, me and you!
Track Name: Hana Kamea, Roch Gallo, Quinn Norin - Bedtime
Bedtime
Copyright lyrics and music melody by Hana Kamea 2010
Musical arrangement by Roch Gallo 2011


Bedtime, Bedtime
Now’s the time to go,
Yes its time to go to bed.
Bedtime, bedtime
Yes now its time,
to take your sleepy head to bed!

What do you say if we end our day
After all of your wonderful play
I’ll hold your hand and we can dance all the way
To your bedroom where your animal friends await

Bedtime, Bedtime
Wait, You say you don’t want to go?
You don’t want to go to bed
Bedtime, Bedtime
You don’t want to go
You want to do something else instead! Hmm, great.

(speak this part partly)
Here’s what we can do,
Take our hands 1 and 2
And softly brush, brush down your back
Feel it on your skin
We take our hands both 1 and 2
And brush, brush, slowly down your back…..! (go slower)
(whispered: Doesn't that feel good?)

Oh it’s bedtime, bedtime
And you still don’t want to go
You want to stand on your head, head, head!
But its bedtime, bedtime, yes as you know
It’s really time to go to bed!

Looks like we need one more game to play
This time, we’ll slowly rock the night away,
Ya hold my hands, & let your body sway!
Let your body sideways sway…..
(slow it down into interlude, waltz at that point…)

Musical interlude
(“doo, doo, doo, doo..”: layered voices)

Now breathe really deep (sound of an inbreath) and feel
whole body peace (pause)
and slowly all your breath starts to release, (ah…exhaling)

(very slow)
Bedtime, Bedtime, you didn’t want to go
But now that you are calm, your body can let go…
Follow your feet as they tuck under your sheets,
Sink your cheek into your pillow…
And fall asleep!
Track Name: Hana Kamea, Roch Gallo - Sulla Lulla
Sulla Lulla Llulaby
based on a Norwegian Folksong


Sulla Lulla, Sulla Lulla, Sulla Lulla, Leia.

Sleep now, be sleepy now
Sleep my little baby
Go to sleep

Sleep now be sleepy now
Sleep my little baby
Go to sleep

Slip away on the waves, slip away from this day
Slip away into dreams, slip away, slip away ..

Sulla Lulla, Sulla Lulla, Sulla Lulla, Leia.

I will be here when you wake
You can float now on the waves
You are safe here in my arms
You can rest now, and slip away

Sulla Lulla, Sulla Lulla, Sulla Lulla, Leia.
