The more we get together

All: Together, together

The more we get together,

the happier we'll be

[shows the audience entering The Markham Theatre.]

'Cause your friends are my friends

And my friends are your friends

The more we get together,

[Song: Time To Sing]

It's time to sing a song or two

You with me and me with you

Time for us to sing a while

Hey hey hey

It's time for us to clap our hands

In rhythm with the beat

Time for hands to clap awhile

Hey hey hey

And it's time for saying hi and hello (hi, Raffi!)

Let's all sing a song that we know

It's time for us to tap our toes

Together with our feet

Time for toes to tap awhile

Hey hey hey

And it's time for saying hi and hello (hi, Raffi!)

Let's all sing a song that we know

It's time to make a sound you like...

[Mouth trumpeting and scatting]

[Instrumental break]

Oh, it's time to sing a song or two

You with me and me with you

(Song: Rise and Shine]

Raffi: Rise with the bluebird

Shine like the sun

Now's the time to rise and shine

[Instrumental]

Rise and shine

The world's been turning

And everyone is waking

Rise and shine

On this new day

The morning light is breaking

So rise with the rest of us

Shine like a pearl

Rise and show your love

All around the world

Oh, rise with the bluebird

Shine like the sun

Now's the time to rise and shine

[Instrumental break]

Rise and shine

Today is calling

And this is what it's saying

Rise and shine

Your friends are waking

It's time for work and playing

So rise with the rest of us

Shine like a pearl

Rise and show your love

All around the world

Oh, rise with the bluebird

Shine like the sun

Now's the time to rise and shine

Now's the time to rise and shine.

[The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: Thank you so much. Thank you very much. You probably know the song about the six little ducks. [The audience agree.] I got a song about five little ducks. It's an entirely different song and it tells a different story.

[Song: Five Little Ducks]

Five little ducks went out one day

Over the hills and far away

Mother duck said "quack, quack, quack, quack"

Would you like to make the sound of the Mother duck?

[The audience agree.]

Raffi: OK, let's try it now. I'll sing "Mother duck says" and you can make the sound, OK?

Mother duck said

Audience: "Quack, quack, quack, quack"

Raffi: That was wonderful.

But only four little ducks came back

Four little ducks went out one day

Over the hills and far away

Mother duck said

Audience: "Quack, quack, quack, quack"

Raffi: But only three little ducks came back

Three little ducks went out one day

Over the hills and far away

Mother duck said

Audience: "Quack, quack, quack, quack"

Raffi: But only two little ducks came back

Two little ducks went out one day

Over the hills and far away

Mother duck said

Audience: "Quack, quack, quack, quack"

Raffi: But only one little duck came back

One little duck went out one day

Over the hills and far away

Mother duck said

Audience: "Quack, quack, quack, quack"

Raffi: But none of the five little ducks came back

So sad mother duck went out one day

Over the hills and far away

Mother duck said

Audience: "Quack, quack, quack, quack"

Raffi: And all of the five little duckies came back.

[Raffi and the Rise and Shine Band quack like ducks while the audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: It's hard to stop once you start, isn't it? Quack, quack, quack, quack. I like that one with a happy ending, too. Before we go any further, I'd like to ask you a couple of personal questions so that I can get to know you a little bit. How many of you like to eat apples? Let me see your hands up. How many of you like to go bowling? How many of you had a bath today? I have a song all about the joys of having a bath.

[Song: Bathtime]

Raffi: One, two, three.

[Mouth trumpet]

The Rise and Shine Band: [kazooing]

Raffi: [Mouth trumpet]

The Rise and Shine Band: [kazooing]

Raffi: The water is fine, fine, fine

The soap is mine, mine, mine

Scrub and shine, shine, shine

It's my bathtime

The water is nice and warm

It makes me feel at home

Like a baby whale

It's my bathtime

Raffi and Bucky: Ba ba ba, bubbly bubbles

Wo wo wo, silky bubbles

Raffi: In my tub, tub, tub

I'm gonna scrub, scrub, scrub

Every part of me

It's my bathtime

Wash my toes, toes, toes

Scrub my ears and my nose

Wash my body, oh

It's my bathtime

[The bubbles float over the stage during the instrumental break].

Raffi and Bucky: Ba ba ba, bubbly bubbles

Wo wo wo, silky bubbles

Raffi: Hey, the water is fine, fine, fine

The soap is mine, mine, mine

Scrub and shine, shine, shine

It's my bathtime

The water is nice and warm

It makes me feel at home

Like a baby whale

It's my bathtime.

[Raffi mouth trumpets while the Rise and Shine Band kazoo during the outro. The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: Thank you, thank you. I think I'm gonna need your help on this next one, which is all about some apples and some bananas.

[Song: Apples and Bananas in F major]

Raffi: [mouth trumpeting during the intro]

I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas

I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas

Oh, I like to ate, ate, ate aypuls and banaynays

[Everyone else points to Bucky hitting the hi-hat. The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: [laugh] I like that one. Thank you. For your listening pleasure, we have una cancon en Espanol, a beautiful song in Spanish, all about the great love of colors. This is called "De Colores". One, two, three, one.

[Song: De Colores]

[Instrumental intro; Raffi vocalizing]

Raffi and Dennis: De Colores

De Colores se visten los campos en la primavera

De Colores

De Colores son los pajaritos que vienen de afuera

De Colores

De Colores es el arco iris que vemos lucir

Y por eso los grandes amores

De muchos colores me gustan a mi

Raffi, Dennis, and Mitch: Y por eso los grandes amores

De muchos colores me gustan a mi

[Instrumental break]

Canta el gallo

Canta el gallo con el quiri quiri quiri quiri quiri

La gallina

La gallina con el cara cara cara cara cara

Los polluelos

Los polluelos con el pio pio pio pio pi

Y por eso los grandes amores

De muchos colores me gustan a mi

Y por eso los grandes amores

De muchos colores me gustan a mi.

[The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: Thank you. Gracias. Thank you. I'm gonna put the guitar down for a while. [puts aways his guitar and takes out a purple microphone] I want to come over and have a closer look at you. [stand up] I think I'll just walk on over. [Raffi walks over and sees the audience.] Hello, hi, hello. Hello, hello, hello, how are you? Good. Look at your beautiful faces. Are you having a good time?

[The audience agrees.]]'

[Clap, clap.]

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands

[Clap, clap.]

If you're happy and you know it and you really want to show it

If you're happy and you know it, moo like a cow.

Raffi and the Audience: Moo.

Raffi: [laugh] I tricked you. [laugh] Moo, let me hear that again.

Audience: Moo.

Raffi: Oh, that's moo-sic to my ears. [Drumshot] [returns on stage] Moo-ving right along. [Cowbell] [laugh]] I know a terrific song with a carribean beat that we can sing together. This one's got bananas in it, too. And I'll sing my lines and you can sing yours, alright?

[The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: Thank you very much. You're sounding wonderful. Let's hear it for you. [Whistle]]

[The audience cheer and applaud again.]

Raffi: I like to sing you a lullaby en Francais. This song is French is called "Fais Dodo", which means "Go To Sleep". Let me see you with a little baby in your arms, and let's rock that baby back in forth, like this, while we sing. Shall we? Let's me see you with that little baby. That's it.

[Song: Fais Dodo]

Fais dodo, Colas mon p'tit frère

Fais dodo, t'auras du lolo.

Fais dodo, Colas mon p'tit frère

Fais dodo, t'auras du lolo.

Maman est en haut qui fait du gâteau

Papa est en bas qui fait du chocolat

Fait dodo Colas mon p'tit frère

Fait dodo, t'auras du lolo.

[Raffi and the Rise and Shine Band hum during the instrumental break.]

Maman est en haut qui fait du gâteau

Papa est en bas qui fait du chocolat

Fait dodo Colas mon p'tit frère

Fait dodo, t'auras du lolo.

[Raffi and the Rise and Shine Band hum during the instrumental outro. The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: Thank you. Let me see your twinkling stars up and shining brightly, just like this. And we can sing this very quietly together, alright?

[A-capella Song: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Raffi and the Audience: Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are.

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are.

Raffi: That's a nice tune. It's good to sing things quietly together and true, isn't it? I have an idea. How would you like to sing me a song?

[The audience agree.]

Raffi: Alright. Maybe my band could play along with you while you sing. Shall we try it that?

[Song: Baa Baa Black Sheep]

Raffi: Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?

Audience: Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

One for my master and one for my dame,

One for the little boy who lives down the lane.

Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

Raffi: Marvelous. [He and the audience applaud.] You probably know this one, too.

[Song: Eensy Weensy Spider

Audience: The eensy weensy spider

Went up the water spout

Down came the rain and

Washed the spider out

Out came the sun and

Dried up all the rain

And the eensy weensy spider

Went up the spout again.

Raffi: You sure know a lot of songs. Ladies and gentlemen, it's time for the dance portion of our program. This one's all about the girl who came from France who didn't know how to dance.

[Song: Knees Up Mother Brown in C-major]

There came a girl from France

Who didn't know how to dance

The only thing that she could do was

Knees up Mother Brown

Oh, knees up Mother Brown

Knees up Mother Brown

Knees up, knees up, never let the breeze up,

Knees up Mother Brown

Oh, hopping on one foot

Hopping on one foot

Hopping, hopping, never stopping

Hopping on one foot

Oh, knees up Mother Brown

Knees up Mother Brown

Knees up, knees up, never let the breeze up,

Knees up Mother Brown

[The music's key changes to D major].

Oh, hopping on the other

Hopping on the other

Hopping, hopping, never stopping

Hopping on the other

And whirling round and round

Whirling round and round

Whirling, whirling, never twirling

Whirling round and round

There came a girl from France

Who didn't know how to dance

The only thing that she could do was

Knees up Mother Brown

Hey!

[The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: Thank you. [takes out his guitar] Boys and girls, I'd like you to sit back and get comfortable for this next one, because I'm gonna sing this song all by myself, especially for you. In many countries around the world, there are children whose names may be different than the names you know. In this song, you have a chance to listen to the names of children from around the world. [whispering] Two, three, four.

[Song: Like Me and You]

Bonnie lives in Canada

Ahmed lives in Egypt, Moshe lives in Israel

Bruce lives in Australia

Ching lives in China, Olga lives in Russia

Ingrid lives in Germany

And each one is much like another

A child of a mother and a father

A very special son or daughter

A lot like me and you

Koji lives in Japan, Nina lives in Chile

Farida lives in Pakistan

Zosia lives in Poland, Manuel lives in Brazil

Maria lives in Italy

Kofi lives in Ghana, Rahim lives in Iran

[singing wordleslly during the instrumental outro. The audience cheer and applaud.]

I know a song about a beautiful whale. Shall we sing Baby Beluga together?

[The audience agree.]

Raffi: A one and a two and a three and a four and.

[humming during the instrumental intro]

Baby beluga in the deep blue sea

Swim so wild and you swim so free

Heaven above and the sea below

And a little white whale on the go

Raffi, Mitch, and Dennis: Baby beluga, baby beluga

Raffi: Is the water warm, is your mama home

With you, so happy?

Way down yonder where the dolphins play

Where you dive and splash all day

Waves roll in and the waves roll out

See the water squirtin' out of your spout

Raffi, Mitch, and Dennis: Baby beluga, baby beluga

Raffi: Sing your little song, sing for all your friends

We like to hear you

[Mouth trumpeting]

Everybody.

[Mouth trumpeting]

When it's dark, you're home and fed

You curl up, snug in your water bed

The moon is shining, the stars are out

Good night, little whale, good night

Raffi, Mitch, and Dennis: Baby beluga, oh, baby beluga

Raffi: With tomorrow's sun, another day's begun

You'll soon be waking

Raffi, Mitch, and Dennis: Baby beluga in the deep blue sea

Swim so wild and you swim so free

Heaven above and the sea below

And a little white whale on the go

You're just a little white whale on the go.

[The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: Thank you. Thank you very much.

[standing up] It's time to shake the sillies out, folks. So let me see your body wiggle loose a little bit like this. That's it. Let your arms fall. Give your leg a shake. I like to shake my cheeks loose, like this. [blubbering] Let me hear you do that.

[The audience blubber.]

Raffi: That's it, alright. Oh, and let me see if the band is ready for shaking, OK? [Dennis, Bucky, and Nancy play shaking music.] They're always ready for shaking. [Mitch smiles in relief.] Are you ready to shake?

[The audience cheer.]

[Song: Shake My Sillies Out)

Raffi: Well, I gotta shake, shake, shake my sillies out

Shake, shake, shake my sillies out

Shake, shake, shake my sillies out

Wiggle my waggles away

I gotta clap, clap, clap my crazies out

Clap, clap, clap my crazies out

Clap, clap, clap my crazies out

Wiggle my waggles away

I gotta jump, jump, jump my jiggles out

Jump, jump, jump my jiggles out

Jump, jump, jump my jiggles out

Wiggle my waggles away

I gotta yawn, yawn, [Yawn] yawn my sleepies out

Yawn, yawn, yawn my sleepies out

I gotta yawn, yawn, [Yawn] yawn my sleepies out

And wiggle my waggles away

I gotta stretch, stretch [Groan]

Stretch my stretchies out

Stretch, stretch, stretch my stretchies out

I gotta stretch, stretch

A humongous noisy stretch!

[Raffi and the audience stretch and scream.]

Strech my stretchies out

Wiggle my waggles away

Hey, you gotta shake, shake, shake my sillies out

Shake, shake, shake my sillies out

Shake, shake, shake my sillies out

Wiggle my waggles away

Hey, wiggle my waggles away

Raffi: And I need some clean water for drinking,

Yes, I need some clean air for breathing,

Raffi, Mitch, and Dennis: So that I can grow up strong,

And take my place where I belong.

All I really need is a song in my heart,

And love in my family.

And my friends are your friends

The more we get together,

Let's hear it for us. [Whistle]

[The audience cheer and applaud.]

Raffi: I like to sing you a song that I wrote with my wife, Debi. And, you know, over the years, Debi has helped me tremendously with the work that I do, and writing songs is one of the ways that we work together. And this one is called "Everything Grows". One and a two and a three and a.

[Song: Everything Grows]

Everything grows and grows

Babies do

Animals too

Everything grows

Everything grows and grows

Sisters do

Brothers too

Everything grows

A blade of grass, fingers and toes

Hair on my head, a red, red rose

Everything grows, anyone knows

That's how it goes

Raffi and Nancy: Yes, everything grows and grows

Babies do

Animals too

Everything grows

Everything grows and grows

Sisters do

Brothers too

Everything grows

Birds in the air, leaves on the tree

Everything grows, anyone knows

That's how it goes

Yes, everything grows and grows

[Instrumental break on Nancy's piano and Mitch's harmonica; Raffi singing wordlessly]

Raffi: That's how it goes
