Solo quiero bailer – dance! Solo quiero bailer – dance! Chorus: I Just Wanna Dance! I Just Wanna Dance! I Just Wanna Dance! With all of my friends, friends, friends I Just Wanna Dance! (¡Sólo quiero bailar!) I Just Wanna Dance! (¡Sólo quiero bailar!) I Just Wanna Dance! (¡Sólo quiero bailar!) With all of my friends, friends, friends I just wanna dance! Hear the rhythm? Feel the beat? 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)

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

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!

New Clothes 02:44
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)

So Big! 02:42
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!

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!

Oh! Susanna 04:17
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

Dreamland 07:27
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

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.
