Track Name: Friendly World
In this friendly, friendly world with each day so full of joy
Why should anyone be lonely?
In this friendly, friendly world with each night so full of dreams
Why should anyone be afraid?

The world is such a wonderful place to wander through
When you've got people you love to wander along with you

With the skies so full of stars and the river so full of song
Everyone should be so thankful

Thankful for this friendly, friendly world
Track Name: Meeshak Saunter
i like to play with my ball
i like to play with my ball
I am the most lovable dog in the world

And I bless Jesus that I am free
Free to wander and love.

I got all this fur and I am so hot
Will somebody get out of
Somebody get out of
Somebody get out of here
Track Name: Fashion Risk
Fashion Risk, I like to take a Fashion Risk
Fashion Risk, I need to take a Fashion Risk

When I'm feeling dull and bored
I head down to the thrift store
Umbrella and plastic fruit
These are some tools I use to take my

Fashion Risk, I like to take a Fashion Risk
Fashion Risk, I need to take a Fashion Risk

When I'm walking with my dog
Matching outfits, matching clogs
Crochetted in pink and red
We look as cozy as a fluffy bed, it's

Fashion Risk, we like to take our Fashion Risk
Fashion Risk, we need to take our Fashion Risk

Fashion Risks don't cost a dime
You can wear a valentine
Fashion Risks are really fun
I'd like to take 101

Fashion Risks, I like to take a Fashion Risk
Fashion Risk, I need to take a Fashion Risk

So you feeling out of shorts?
Feeling like a sweater that's unraveling?
Like a lost sock in the dryer?
Did your boss give you the boot?
Sometimes I feel bad, too and you know what I do?
I take myself a little Fashion Risk!
And I feel closer to God

A Fashion Risk can heal my soul
Return my fragmented self to whole
Save the world, bring peace to all
All because I had the courage to take.......

My Fashion Risk, I like to take a Fashion Risk
Fashion Risk, I need to take a Fashion Risk

When I'm playing with my band
Some people need a helping hand
They don't always get the S
That I sew on every dress it's

Fashion Risk, I like to take a Fashion Risk
Fashion Risk, I need to take a Fashion Risk
Track Name: The Wonders of Me
I have an important question for you
I've been wondering this for some time
I guess I should ask my question
This important question of mine

Of all of the beautiful wonderful things you already know about me
What would you say is your is your most favorite thing
Your most favorite thing about me?

The Wonders of Me
The Wonders of Me
Oh, how the world loves
The Wonders of Me

You'll see me out in my back yard playing with
My little dog Ralph
You'll see me picking flowers for myself
Over at the neighbors
And when I'm not playing my little piano
Or outside petting the kitties
You'll see me laughing with friends
The wonders of me never end

The Wonders of Me
The Wonders of Me
Oh, how the world loves
The Wonders of Me

You you you you you you
You you you you you
You you you you you
You you you you

And now that I've refreshed your memory
Reminded you of my goodness inside
I hope you will search deep in your heart
And my request you will oblige

Of all of the beautiful wonderful things you already know about me
What would you say is your is your most favorite thing
Your very most favorite thing about me?

The Wonders of Me
The Wonders of Me
Oh, how the world loves
The Wonders of Me

one more time, everybody

The Wonders of Me
The Wonders of Me
Oh, how the world loves
The Wonders of Me
Track Name: Anyone Can Do That
Anyone Can Do That, they were saying
My grandma can do that
If Anyone Can Do That, then why don't you?

I got myself a pad of paper
I got my poster paints
I painted a bunch of pictures
Then I painted my dog

I made a couple of calls
I got the right connection
I had a little show this weekend
I think I will be famous

Some guys were standing there
Asking me "is that art?"
I said "I think it is"
I heard them remark

Anyone Can Do That, they were saying
My grandma can do that
If Anyone Can Do That, then why don't you?

I got my used guitar, I got my fender amp
My friends came to hear me play
I think they were impressed
I got a gig playing at a party
And I played my best song
I have a feeling I will be famous
They were singing along

Some kids were standing there
Questioning my art
I said "I think it's fine"
I heard them remark

Anyone Can Do That, they were saying
My grandma can do that
If Anyone Can Do That, then why don't you?

Anyone Can Do That, they were saying
My grandma can do that
If Anyone Can Do That, then why don't you?

Track Name: A Little Story
There was this big guy
And He had a great idea.
He built Himself a world
And He put people on it.

But the people they turned wicked,
And they soon forgot
Who had made their very being
And put them on their planet.

So the God He sent His very own Son,
His only holy Son.
And He sent Him to the world
'cause something had to be done.

His son walked around and He told the truth
Like the truth had never been told.
He was kind to the poor,
His home was the road.

Unlike any other heroes
Of which a song could be sung,
He never did bad to anyone.
He never did no harm.

But there were other people who weren't so nice
And they plotted to take His life
And the Man knew all about it
But He didn't even hide.

And they beat Him and they robbed Him
And they hung Him for bein' good.
And they laughed and made jokes
While they stood in his blood.

But there's a happy ending to the story.
I think you'll be glad to know
He came back to life in glory,
And up from the grave He arose.

So before you turn out your light,
Remember this one Man
Who lived comfortably in heaven
But gave it all up to hang on a cross.

'Cause He hung for you and me
And He came to set us free.
'Cause his Dad had a great idea
About the way things ought to be.
