about

Press Play! is the follow-up to Super Stolie’s tot-friendly 2009 debut, When I Grow Up, and finds the prolific songwriter toying with a more mature audience -- the 3 to 10-year-olds -- and offering danceable pop tunes that celebrate and encourage self-expression by challenging kids to tongue-twist, domesticate and dream big.

Recorded in her home studio, Press Play! showcases Stolie on acoustic guitar, piano, ukulele, bass, banjo, harmonica, djembe, tambourine, tin whistle and drumsticks on a laundry basket. All synths, drums and other noises were composed and programmed with Garageband. To support its completion, Stolie ran a successful, 30-day Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign, raising over $2500 from fans to go towards replication costs and the hiring of a pro sound engineer for the mixing and mastering of the project.

After several years gaining momentum on the kids circuit supported by her first CD, Super Stolie has completed her second set of memorizable tunes for the youngin’s. Press Play! reaches across musical genres while exploring language, singing without abandon, and bowing in awe to the fearlessness that exists for every child whose prospect of growing up is as bright as the dreams they dream.

Everybody get up on your feet
Jump along, and clap your hands
You can’t stop it, you just wanna dance
Do the twist, march in place
Make a smile or a silly face
Be creative, this is your chance
Get on the floor when you just wanna dance

Chorus

Hear the music? Now, let’s see some motion
Rocking back and forth likes waves in the ocean
Go what feels good, get lost in a trance
Close your eyes when you just wanna dance
Get some room and spin around and around
Make up your own moves and just get down
Around the world from Mexico to France
All the kids just wanna dance

Chorus

I just wanna dance (Quiero bailar con todos mis amigos)

Track Name: See Saw Seen
I see the blue sky today
And I saw the blue sky yesterday
I have seen the blue birds flying in the blue sky
And hope for a blue sky tomorrow

You see the sunset today
And you saw the sunset yesterday
You have seen the sunset in purple and in pink hues
And hope for a sunset tomorrow

We see the bright stars tonight
And we saw the bright stars last night
We have seen the bright stars and all the dots connected
And hope for the bright stars tomorrow
Track Name: Left Is To The Left
Left is to the left, right is to the right
The opposite of wrong is getting it right
Sun is in the day, moon is at night
Black is the dark and white is the light

Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Whoo-hoo-hoo
Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Whoo-hoo-hoo

Up is climbing up, down is sliding down
Skip over the bridge and dig underground
High up in the sky or low to the ground
Turn that frown upsidedown

Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Whoo-hoo-hoo
Uh-huh, Uh-huh, Whoo-hoo-hoo

Back, lean back, front, move ahead
Quiet is nice but turn it loud instead
Last one up the stairs is the first to bed
Green means go and stop is red
Left is to the left, right is to the right
The opposite of wrong is getting it right
Sad turns happy when you smile so bright
Stand up, sit down, fight for your right
Track Name: The Sock Song
There was a sock right here on my foot (on my foot!)
And now I don’t know where I put it
Maybe it’s under the bed
Or maybe someone put it on my cat’s head (A sock is not a hat for cats!)

There was a sock right here on my foot (on my foot!)
And now I don’t know where I put it
Maybe the vacuum sucked I up (whoop)
And now it’s all covered in dust (I’m not gonna wear that filthy thing!)

There was a sock right here on my foot (on my foot!)
And now I don’t know where I put it
Somebody is tickling my toes
And milk is spilling out my nose (Don’t cry over spilled milk!)

There was a sock right here on my foot
Now I don’t know where I put it
It’s hard for me to do the moonwalk
When I’ve only got just one sock (Clap your hands!)

There was a sock right here on my foot (on my foot!)
And now I don’t know where I put it
This problem is now two
Cuz I can only find one shoe!
Track Name: New Clothes
This is how it goes
This is how it goes
When you grow
You’re gonna need new clothes

You’ll need new shoes when your feet don’t fit
A pair of socks when your toes poke through
If your sleeves are at your elbows cuz your arms grew long
Then it’s time to go shopping and sing this song

Chorus

If your jeans are too short cuz your legs stretched
Your coat seems tight when you shove your shoulders in
These gloves are for small hands and your fingers are long
I think it’s time to go shopping and sing this song

Chorus

So say goodbye old winter boots (Goodbye old winter boots)
So long to your jammies too (So long jammies!)
And I bet you by next year, at least by June
You’re gonna need a new bathing suit

This is how it goes (This is how it goes) Hand me that hand-me-down!
This is how it goes (This is how it goes) One kid’s trash is another kid’s treasure!
When you grow (This is how it goes) Don’t throw ‘em away, donate!
You’re gonna need new clothes (This is how it goes)
Track Name: So Big!
So Big – look what I can do!
So Smart – look at what I know!
So Strong - look what I can move!
So funny – I can make you laugh. Ha!

You are a big kid, you used to be small
But you’re growing up fast and getting so tall
You can take off your shoes and hold your spoon
And drink from a big kid sippy-cup, too
You can open the door and pick up the phone
Toss a ball and give a dog a bone

CHORUS

You are a smart kid, learning everyday
Using your brain to think of things to say
Like yes, no, please and thank you very much
You can give a high five and two thumbs up
You know your name and how old you are
A smart kid like you is gonna go so far

CHORUS

You are a strong kid, make a muscle
Twist and bend yourself like a pretzel
Balance on one leg and hop in place
Then we’re gonna run and have a footrace
You can push and pull and knock stuff down
You’re the fastest, strongest kid in town

CHORUS

You are a funny kid, a funky little monkey
With sweet dance moves, you’re so spunky
You can make a funny face and super silly sounds
A tickle makes you giggle and you’re rolling all around
You’re zany in the brainy and make everybody laugh
You’re a goofy wacky kid; can I have your autograph?

So Big – look what I can do!
So Smart – look at what I know!
So Strong - look what I can do!
So funny – Wanna hear a joke?

Did you hear the story about the skunk? Ah, Nevermind, it stinks!
Track Name: Chocolate Chip Cookies
We’re gonna make, we’re gonna bake Chocolate chip cookies
In the oven, how I love ‘em Chocolate chip cookies
For dessert, it doesn’t hurt to have Chocolate chip cookies
Warm and gooey and so chewy Chocolate chip cookies
Mmmmmm
Mmmmmm

Tie your apron tight
Set the oven to bake
Three hundred and seventy-five degrees
Just a few minutes to wait
Flour to make them fluff
Sugar to make them sweet
Crack an egg on the side of the bowl
And use a blender to beat

Chorus

Pour the chocolate chips
Mix the batter well
Drop with a spoon on a cookie sheet
And count the minutes to 12
When the timer dings
Put on your oven mitt
The cookies can cool on a wire rack
But just for a little bit

Chorus

Pour a glass of milk
Put the cookies on a plate
Take a bite and how does it taste?
Yummy, it tastes great!
Track Name: Top of Our Lungs

Track Name: Oh! Susanna
I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee
I’m going to Louisiana, my true love for to see
It rained all night the day I left. The weather was bone dry.
The sun so hot, I froze to death. Susanna, don’t you cry!

Oh! Susanna, oh don’t you cry for me
I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee
Oh! Susanna, oh don’t you cry for me
I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee

I had a dream the other night when everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susanna coming down the hill
A buckwheat cake was in her mouth and a tear was in her eye
I said, “I’m coming from the South, Susanna don’t you cry!”

Chorus

When I get to New Orleans, I’ll look all ’round and ’round
And when I find Susanna, I’ll fall right on the ground
But if I do not find her, I will surely die
And when I’m dead and buried, Susanna don’t you cry!

Chorus
Track Name: Flying on a Plane
i’m flying on a plane
and i’m not scared
this is how i get
from here to there
i’m flying on a plane

I need a vacation so what do you say
Let’s fly away across the usa
Pick an ocean, a beach or a bay
A big city too would be okay
hey-hey, Hey-Hey-Hey

chorus

Close your eyes and you can do
whatever you want to when you’re somewhere new
Climb a mountain, splash in waves of blue
Go explore cuz this world’s for you
ooo-hoo, Whoo-hoo-hoo

chorus

We go up up up to the sky
We go up oh so high
Now look out your window
At the world that is below
Track Name: Dreamland
Floating away to dreamland, oh

Teddy bears and rocking chairs
Time to say your prayers
Parakeets and sugar treats
Climb between the sheets
Flowerbed and gingerbread
Lay down your sweet head
Butterflies and apple pies
Close your sleepy eyes

Floating away to dreamland, oh

Flying kites and bunny white
Soft glow of nightlight
Holidays and sunny rays
Rest your cares away
Lady bugs and magic rugs
Goodnight kiss and hug
Pin the tail and nightengale
Dream of bedtime tales

Floating away to dreamland, oh

Bumblebees and climbing trees
Quickly fall to sleep
Twinkle stars and blue guitars
Bless your precious heart
Sledding slopes and bubbly soap
Tomorrow brings hope
Nectarines and tambourines
Wishing you sweet dreams

Floating away to dreamland, oh
Track Name: You Are Getting Older
I’m gonna bake you a cake

I’m gonna sing you a song

but you’re still my baby

but nothing can change
how special you are

I’m gonna bake you a cake
cuz it’s your birthday

happy birthday to someone so special
happy birthday to you

but nothing can change
