They are 2 guys (Mr. Hoo & Mr. E) who love playing quirky, funny, upbeat songs for kids & families. ... more

Track Name: Theme from Pants!
Everybody makes mistakes
We know this better than most
No one likes to dance in their wrong sized pants
How embarrassing! It's the worst!
Maybe if we air them out
Have a little laugh at ourselves
We don't have to worry
We're among friends
What you eating under there?
Under where!?
Let's dance!

Tell your mom to text your friends and meet you where the fun begins
With The Alphabeticians
Tell your friends to all get wise
We're having fun with the ABC Guys
The Alphabeticians with our rock star band, we'll make you dance!
Track Name: Giraffe
Giraffe will make you laugh. No one sticks their neck out for you quite like a giraffe.
She's a friend and a half, protects you from riffraff. Giraffe, giraffe, giraffe

Giraffe can do the math. A little discoordinated, still she's on the graph.
Quaff a half carafe, relax and share a laugh, with giraffe, giraffe, giraffe.
Track Name: Roe Together
Here's a round trip ticket
Johnson Creek to the Pacific

Yo ho ho it's the old coho
Fish feeling amorous
They're anadromous

Round trip ticket from the creek to the Pacific
back in time to spawn by dawn to be specific

Roe roe roe

Salmon come, and salmon go
They come back again
They come back again

Nah nah nah

Dropping their eggs in the bank where they were born
A long long trip leaving in the early morn

Round trip ticket from the creek to the Pacific
back in time to spawn by dawn to be specific
Track Name: It
It starts with counting
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
You must prepare your mind
Get into a state of zen
You're about to embark on a difficult quest
One from which there will be
No time to rest
You don't know where they're hiding
'Cause it's you they're hiding from
And when you're done counting it's time to shout:
Ready or not here I come

Let's all play hide and seek
Every single game is unique
I know what you're gonna say
All you wanna do is play
Hide and seek

You know you're it and you must find someone
It seems like a big job but it's actually kind of fun
You see you're friend trying to hide behind a recycling bin
Then it hits you hey guess what, you're gonna win!
When you're it and you find someone . . . finally
then you get to shout out: Olly olly oxen free!

Let's all play hide and seek
Every single day of the week
I wanna play it all the time
It doesn't even cost a single dime to play
Hide and seek

Hide and seek, hide and seek
Let's all play
Hide and seek, hide and seek
Everybody loves
Hide and seek, hide and seek
I wanna play
Hide and seek, hide and seek
Everybody plays
Hide and seek, hide and seek
I'm gonna gonna play
Hide and seek, hide and seek
Track Name: Monsieur is Mister in French
Monsieur is Mister in French
Oeuf is egg
Track Name: Learn to be Cool
If you can learn to be cool, you can always get what you want.
It always makes you happy when it's time to jump.
It's almost time to jump.
Jump!
Jump up and down. Let your hair bounce all around and down. Let go of everything.
You don't have to know it all.
Track Name: Soccer
What's the name of the game where your foot kicks the ball and your team shares the goal to put the ball in a hole?
It's called soccer, but it's really futbol.
You kick the ball with your feet, don't let it touch your hands.
You gotta understand there's a game in the land they call soccer, but to most it's futbol.

It isn't fair to punch a girl anywhere in the world.
Why do they call it sock-her, when it's really futbol?
Track Name: Taco Knights
Stand at attention. Wash your hands. You're in the presence of a whole new kind of dining champion.
I'm talking about the taco knights.
You may think that we're out to get you, but we're not. How could we be? We're taco knights!
Defenders of the dinner table, you'll eat salad and you'll never know. That's how it goes with the taco knights.
Dress the part and be on time, because we won't have long to dine.
It's ok. It's just that way with the taco knights.
Bringing joy to the world, to all the bullfrogs and bull..girls!
Jeremiah, he's on fire with the taco knights.
Use your fingers, use your toes, it's in your hair? we don't care!
Bath time follows de rigueur with the taco knights.
Dress the part and be on time, because we won't have long to dine.
It's ok. It's just that way with the taco knights.
Stand at attention. Wash your hands. You're in the presence of a whole new kind of dining champion.
I'm talking about the taco knights.
Track Name: Why Doesn't the Moon Have a Name?
Why doesn't the moon have a name?
Why doesn't the moon have a name?
I don't know if there is a cause or if someone is to blame but
Why doesn't the moon have a name?

There's 166 moons in our solar system
Each one has a name of its' own.
There's Calaban and Thalassa, P4 and Calypso
Only the moons name is unknown

Why doesn't the moon have a name?
Why doesn't the moon have a name?
I don't know it's just a joke or some sort of silly game but
Why doesn't the moon have a name?

You don't call your son the kid
We don't call our sun the star
Just don't tell me the reason is that the moon is too far
I still don't know why the moon has no name

Why doesn't the moon have a name?
Why doesn't the moon have a name?
I don't know if there is a cause or if someone is to blame but
Why doesn't the moon have a name?

Why don't we give the moon a name
We could call it Hecate, Celine or Diana
We could call it Unit Zappa or Keith or Warren or Luna
Let's just give the moon a name
I say we give the moon a name
Come on let's give the moon a name
Track Name: Floor is Lava
Throw the cushions down on the floor
Use a blanket boat to the door
It's the algebra that's keeping you whole
Keep your balance don't ever fall

'Cause the floor is lava
And the stairs are lava
Keep your feet from the lava
We defeat the lava

Can't we all fit here on the couch
What if we want to go somewhere else
But it's lunch time will you let us out.
Track Name: RainbowwobniaR
Please form a line that extends from the sun to a point in the back of your head
Face the rain and feel that line that goes from the sun to the back of your head
Let it flow, watch it go to the center of a circle. That's where the rainbow lives.
You see a rainbow. First there's one. Then you look closer. Here it comes.
Double rainbow!
From R.O.Y. B. G.I.V. to V.I.G. B. Y.O.R., the double rainbow is a palindrome of C.O.L.O.R.
You see a rainbow, then again, another rainbow on its head.
Double rainbow!
You can see rainbows!
With science, find rainbows!
Light breaks down in a prism.
Sometimes we all break down.
Track Name: Orange
There is no word that rhymes with orange
So blow the door right off the door hinge

There is no word there is no word
There is no word there is no word

There is no word that rhymes with silver
But don't tell Mary or her chilver

There is no word there is no word
There is no word there is no word

There is no word that rhymes with purple
Unless your curple has a hirple

There is no word there is no word
There is no word there is no word

There is no word that rhymes with month
This time it is the 101th

There is no word there is no word
There is no word there is no word

Now what's word that rhymes with bulb
Track Name: Vowel Movement
Mr. Hoo said, "A E I O U."
Mr. E said, "Hoo U O me Y."
Mr Hoo said, "A I O U six."
Mr. E said "We only need five."

Five vowels to complete this sentence
Get the quick brown fox jumping all around
Why ask Y to come crash the party?
We don't need hymn gym or rhythm. We've got 5.

"E I O U A Y" says the Hoo.
"O A Y we can lose" says the E.
"You are wise with no Ys E" says Hoo.
If we need Y an IE will do!

Five vowels to complete this sentence
Get the quick brown fox jumping all around (the lazy dog)
Why ask Y to come crash the party?
We don't need hymn gym or rhythm we've got five.
Five vowels to complete this sentence

Just five: A E I O U

Track Name: Evil Doctor Ladybug
My son has a pillow pet
He's a ladybug
That ladybug he has a name it's
Evil Doctor Ladybug

Evil Doctor Ladybug
He's not evil, that's just his name.
Evil Doctor Ladybug
I love him just the same.

Evil Doctor Ladybug
He's cuddly, and he's cute.
Evil Doctor Ladybug
And also he is mute.

Evil Doctor Ladybug
He spends all day in bed
He's got black spots but mostly
He's all red

Evil Doctor Ladybug
He's my friend
Evil Doctor Ladybug
This song is at the end.
Track Name: Pants!
These are pants and these are pants, they're almost the same size pants but one pair of pants is a little bit bigger than the other.
