LYRICS FOR ALL SONGS...

THE WEATHER DANCE by Leeny and Steve

Chorus:
The weather dance is a dance you do whether you can dance or not
In the rain or snow, all around the globe, if it’s cold or if it’s hot
All you need is a little room so you can move around
Jump up high and touch the sky, and fall back to the ground
Do the weather dance, do the weather dance

Verse 1:
Do The Wind Chill – it feels colder than it is
The Tornado Twist – you spin and spin and spin
The Storm Chaser – there’s trouble ahead
The Snow Taster – catchin’ snowflakes
The High Pressure – it’s dry and clear
The Low Pressure – bad weather is here
Get your moves together, go forecast the weather

REPEAT CHORUS

Verse 2:
Do The Fog Roll – you’re rollin’ on the ground
The Dew Point – it really rocks the joint
The Heat Wave – it’s gonna make you sweat
The Weather Vane – show the direction of the wind
The Puddle Jumper – you’re leapin’ like a frog
The Cloud Cover – blockin’ out the sun
Get your moves together, go forecast the weather

REPEAT CHORUS

Bridge:
We’re in the troposphere
The weather is happenin’ here
We can ride on a rainbow
Let’s go, let’s go, let’s go

REPEAT CHORUS
Do the weather dance!


WATCHING CLOUDS by Leeny and Steve

Verse/Refrain 1:
The clouds in the sky, we’re watching them go by
They change shape as they fly, that’s what they do
No two are the same, like snowflakes or a face
It’s fun to name the animals they look like as they move
I’m spending all my time watching clouds go by with you

Verse/Refrain 2:
Clouds are made of tiny water drops or ice
The air is warm inside, that’s why they float
Some clouds are white, reflecting the sun’s light
And some clouds might be gray, bringing rain or snow here soon
I’m spending all my time watching clouds go by with you

Bridge:
Cirrus clouds are high
Stratus clouds are low
Cumulus clouds are puffy
They move as the wind blows

Verse/Refrain 3:
The clouds in the sky, we’re watching them go by
Did you know they can fly miles and miles
What do you see, what do the shapes and colors mean
Imaginations are unique, we each have different points of view
I’m spending all my time watching clouds go by with you
I’m spending all my time watching clouds go by with you
I’m spending all my time watching clouds go by with you


WHAT WILL THE WEATHER BE? by Leeny and Steve

Chorus:
What will the weather be?
Ask the animals, don’t ask me
They can smell and feel and hear
Changes in the atmosphere
Watch how animals behave
The things they do give clues away
What will the weather be?
Ask the animals. What will the weather be?

Verse 1:
Cows will sense a storm comin’ on
They’ll stand together to be safe and warm
A shadow from a groundhog shows
There’s six more weeks of winter to go
When birds are flying high in the sky
The weather’s clear, the sun will shine
If butterflies are not in your flowers
Expect to see some heavy rain showers

REPEAT CHORUS

Verse 2:
The faster crickets chirp is a sign
That temperatures are on the rise
If ants are building up their mounds
There’s probably a storm around
Before a hurricane arrives
Sharks will flee their homes to survive
Dogs can smell lightning in the air
And sense thunder that’s barely there

REPEAT CHORUS

Bridge:
When rain is nigh, the trout jump high
Pigs gather sticks and cows swat flies
Frogs croak louder, dolphins swim to sheltered bays
Bees stay in hives, birds go to nests
Spiders leave their webs
Roosters will crow later in the day

REPEAT CHORUS
Don’t ask me. What will the weather be? What will the weather be?
What will the weather be? What will the weather be?


WEATHER EXTREMES by Leeny and Steve

Refrain:
The driest, the wettest, the hottest, the coldest
The sunniest, the windiest, the foggiest, the snowiest
Extremes… weather extremes

Verse 1:
Leeny: The Atacama Desert in the country of Chile is so dry…
Steve: How dry is it?
Leeny: …that no rain has fallen in some places for 400 years.
Steve: Also on the same continent of South America is the wettest place on earth.
Leeny: That’s neat.
Steve: Lloro, Columbia. It averages 525 inches of rain each year.
Leeny: Better bring an umbrella!

Chorus (1st half):
Where in the world would you be (the driest, the wettest, the hottest, the coldest)
To find all of these weather extremes

Verse 2:
Leeny: Where’s the hottest place in the world?
Steve: That would be El Azizia, Libya in the Sahara Desert where a temperature of 136 degrees Fahrenheit was once recorded.
Leeny: You could cool off by heading to Vostok, Antarctica. It was once 129 degrees there… below zero.
Steve: Antarctica is also the driest, windiest, and coldest continent overall.
Leeny: And the iciest.

Chorus (2nd half):
Where in the world would you be
To find all of these weather extremes… weather extremes

Verse 3:
Steve: Florida is nicknamed The Sunshine State, but it’s not really the sunniest place on earth.
Leeny: Is it California?
Steve: No, it’s Yuma, Arizona where the sun shines nearly 90 percent of the time.
Leeny: Chicago may be called The Windy City, but it isn’t the WINDIEST city.
Steve: Where’s that?
Leeny: The windiest place is atop Mount Washington in New Hampshire where a wind speed of 231 miles per hour was reached.
Steve: Why are you yelling?
Leeny: Sorry.

Chorus (1st half):
Where in the world would you be (the sunniest, the windiest, the foggiest, the snowiest)
To find all of these weather extremes

Verse 4:
Leeny: Steve, where are you?
Steve: I’m here at the Grand Banks off the island of Newfoundland, Canada. It’s the foggiest place on earth with over 200 foggy days per year.
Leeny: Fog is a cloud that’s on the ground.
Steve: You know what else is on the ground? Snow, and a lot of it.
Leeny: The snowiest place is Mount Rainier in Washington State. One year, more than 100 feet of snow fell there.
Steve: I bet they have a lot of snow days!

Chorus (full):
Where in the world would you be
To find all of these weather extremes
Where in the world would you be
To find all of these weather extremes… weather extremes

Refrain:
The driest, the wettest, the hottest, the coldest (weather extremes)
The sunniest, the windiest, the foggiest, the snowiest (weather extremes)
The driest, the wettest, the hottest, the coldest (weather extremes)
The sunniest, the windiest, the foggiest, the snowiest (weather extremes)


CLOUDS by Leeny and Steve

Verse/Refrain 1:
The clouds in the sky
We’re watching them go by
They change shape as they fly
It’s what they do
No two are the same
Like snowflakes or a face
It’s fun to name the animals
They look like as they move
I’m spending all my time
Watching clouds go by with you

Verse/Refrain 2:
A cloud’s made of tiny
Water drops or ice
There’s heated air inside
That’s why they float
Some clouds are white
Reflecting the sun’s light
And some clouds might be gray
Bringing rain or snow here soon
I’m spending all my time
Watching clouds go by with you

Bridge:
Some clouds are high
Some clouds are low
Which way they travel
Depends how the wind blows

Verse/Refrain 3:
The clouds in the sky
We’re watching them go by
Did you know they can fly
Miles and miles
Some boy or girl
Halfway around the world
Can see this cloud again
From a different point of view
I’m spending all my time
Watching clouds go by with you
