    With a smile on my face  

    Exclaim I’m feelin’ great how ‘bout you?

    And I can’t wait to take my part how ‘bout you? 

     

    CHORUS:

    I’ve got joy, joy, joy every morning noon and night

    I’ve got joy, joy, joy in my soul  

     

    Verse 2

    Go to school    

    Haven’t been since yesterday  

    I’ve got lots to say how ‘bout you

    I wish more of them would come  

    I’ve got a smile for everyone how ‘bout you?

    I got another day to face how ‘bout you?

    I need some time to play

    Practiced piano, a little fast

    I made my bed, picked up my mess

    Now Give me time to do what I do best

    I just wanna play

    I just wanna play

    I hang out with my Mom and Dad, It’s our home, yeah it’s our pad

    But at night by the shining moon

    We fill our jaws and blow this tune

    Daddy's Little Girl

    Verse 1:

    You first held me and wondered, if anyone saw you cry                       

    You’re strong as rain and thunder with sunlight in your eyes                   

    You always knew you’d love me, but how your heart has grown              

    You could not imagine, the love that you have shown to                         

     

    CHORUS:

    Daddy’s little girl, Daddy’s little girl        

    You hold me in your arms just like an oyster holds a pearl                              

    Daddy’s little girl, Daddy’s little girl        

    You’ll always be my hero in this world.    

    I’m Daddy’s Girl                                       

     

    Verse 2:

    As I grow up you’ll guide me around each turn and bend                 

    I’ll take your hand, and then let go

    You’ll know it’s time and then    

    I’ll make a new life of my own, love a man like you                        

    Have a child bring her home, hand her back to you

     

    CHORUS:

    Daddy’s little girl, Daddy’s little girl        

    You hold me in your arms just like an oyster holds a pearl                              

    Daddy’s little girl, Daddy’s little girl        

    You’ll always be my hero in this world.   

    I’m Daddy’s Girl                                       

     

    Bridge:

    Laughing, crying, living, moments all too rare   

    Years go by like hours, time it isn’t fair            

     

    Verse 3:

    When your arms are older, I’ll come to hold your hand     

    We’ll watch the sky together and walk upon this land      

    As the sun is setting behind your pale blue eyes                  

    I’ll hold you tight and you won’t care if anyone sees you cry    

     

    CHORUS:

    Daddy’s little girl, Daddy’s little girl        

    You hold me in your arms just like an oyster holds a pearl                              

    Daddy’s little girl, Daddy’s little girl

    Meet Me in My Dreams

    Meet me in my dreams

    Meet me in my dreams

    When we’re fast asleep

    We can find a place to meet

     In our dreams

     

    It’s hard to say goodnight

    When we turn out the lights

    I’ll stay with you until the dawn

    By dreaming all night long

     

    Meet me in my dreams      

    Meet me in my dreams      

    Meet me anywhere

    We can float without a care

    In our dreams                          

     

    No matter where you are    

    Just grab a shooting star     

    Meet me where our dreams begin  

    And we can dance again  

     

    Meet me in my dreams      

    Meet me in my dreams      

    When we’re fast asleep      

    We can find a place to meet    

    In our dreams                          

    Tonight

    Ear Worm

    Ear worm

    The catchy little tune that you can’t get out of your head

    Ear Worm

    It keeps you up at night when you’re lying in your bed

    Ear worm

    Some think there’s a cure, but nobody is sure

    Ear worm

    Maybe if I listen to it, that will undo it

    Ear worm

    It stays with you all day, can’t make it go away

    Ear Worm

    Annoying little thing that’s driving you insane

    Ear Worm

    That nasty little tune that just won’t get out of your head

    Ear worm

    It keeps you up all night when you’re lying in your bed

    Ear worm

    Annoying little ditty that gives you no pity

    Ear worm

    Catchy little tune that I can’t get out of my head

    Ear worm

    I used to like the song but now it’s one that I dread

    Ear Worm

    Keeps you up all night when you’re lying in your bed

    Ear worm

    Annoying little thing that’s driving me insane

    Ear worm

    Nasty little tune that just won’t get out of my head

    Ear worm

    Keeps you up all night when you’re lying in your bed

    Ear worm

    Catchy little tune that you can’t get out of your head

    Ear worm

    Keeps you up all night when you’re lying in your bed

    Ear worm

NOTES
"Jeanie B! has created another gem. "Joy" is a wonderful collection of songs that both my four-year-old son and I love. You'll find rockin'-good tunes that will have you dancing around the living room and singing at the top of your lungs in the car, as well as heartwarming melodies and lyrics that will make you want to snuggle up with your little one. I now often overhear my son singing some of her new songs to his stuffed animals in bed at night.

Jeanie B!'s music has it all: heart, soul and humor. If you're already a Jeanie B! fan, quick... add this CD to your collection! If you're new to Jeanie B!, start with this one. You'll want more.

~ Anne Coulter

"Joy" is the third Children's CD by this popular Chicago musicican. Jeanie B! embraces the notion that children's music should sound like adult music with kid friendly lyrics. There is something for everyone on this CD. The songs range from inspiring and uplifting to thoughtful and hearfelt. Kids love the sound of this rockin' band and benefit from the connection that Jeanie makes to their life situations in many songs. There's plenty of laughs as well to keep your funny bone happy.

"Jeanie B! and the Jelly Beans have a uniqueness that's lacking in most children's
music today." -- Mike Davis/WUSM FM/Hattiesburg, MS


The title song "Joy" will fill you with just that. It was written about Jeanie's own children who wake up with their bright eyes and exclaim "I'm feeling great" and carry on with that joy througout the day. Joy is afterall, contagious.

"Hey Daddio" is a rockin' tribute to great Dad's viewed through the eyes of a child imagining they all live in a magical kingdom built by Daddio.

"When I'm Older" expresses the feelings of an older sibling frustrated by the younger kids in the house and longing to grow up so they can do more things.

"Dog's Life" is a new take on songs that have animal sounds as the basis. "Cows like to go to the moovies" is how it starts and it takes us through the animal kingdom with a pun and a giggle at every turn.

When Jeanie's son exclaimed one summer day that it was "Ha ha ha ha Hot!" the song "Hot Summer" was born. A delightful Jimmy Buffet style adventure through the joys of summer will keep you warm all year round.

You buy a really nice toy for your child, they open the box and it's wrapped in bubble wrap. What toy? It's all about the bubble wrap. The song "Bubble Wrap" says it all!!

So many kids are over scheduled these days. "I Just Wanna Play" is a kids lament to his parents to just let him play and grow from just haning out. Parents could use a little play time too...

"Comes from my Heart" certainly does. This one will reach down deep and touch your emotions and lift you up. Beautiful acoustic guitars and layered harmonies. Great for a quiet moment.

The frogs take center stage in "Blue Lagoon". It's a bullfrog's paradise that will make you feel as though you're floating on a lake on a blow up matress.

Why does it feel so good to skip? It just does! Get up and dance to this party song. Just listen to the instructions and follow along.

Jeanie B! is "Daddy's Little Girl". This song was written as a tribute to her father on his 80th Birthday and will have all Daddy's holding their little girls tight tonight.

When it's hard to say good night, you can meet me in my dreams. This will help with bedtime and separation at bedtime. If Mom or Dad has to travel, you can always meet in your dreams.

There is a hidden track on this song called "Ear Worm" which is the term used for little song clips that get stuck in your head and won't leave. Be careful, this one may too...
