    Ben Rudnick and Friends’ most requested song, “A Frog Named Sam,” now leaps onto the stage in A Frog Named Sam: The Musical. The story begins with Sam returning to his pond after an exhausting world tour. Ready for a rest, Sam is distraught to find his pond in disrepair: overgrown and nearly waterless. As if that weren’t enough, an alien, Tripp, crash lands into the pond.

    The sound track tells the story of Sam and Tripp’s new friendship and their intergalactic adventures to save the pond. Featuring songs from the band’s many award winning recordings (“Race Car,” “I Got a New Friend”), it introduces new, sure to be classic, BR&F tunes (“The Adventure Song,” “When Something’s Got You Terribly Blue”) and a reimagined and more fun than ever version of “Macaroni and Cheese.”

    A bonus track, “Coney Island Crazy,” features Ben and his pals bringing to life the thrill of the vintage amusement park in a must-dance blast of rock and roll.

    Ben Rudnick and Friends, pioneers of the Kindie music scene, have produced eleven recordings, played hundreds and hundreds of concerts and have won a variety of accolades including seven Parents’ Choice Awards.

    The adventure continues.

Track Name: When Something's Got You Terribly Blue
When something’s got you terribly blue
It’s up to you what you’re gonna do
Should you start to feel real sad, call me
And we can make a plan
To get glad, to get glad
Toss away the sad and have
A better day!

It’s not the size of the pond,
But how green it is and the love that’s found
Between the reeds and the lily pads,
The Dragonflies landing on your hand
I see your pond is a little brown,
Let’s make a plan and toss away that frown
With a little work and the help of a friend,
The green plants... will grow again
Will grow again
Will grow again

When something’s got you terribly blue
It’s up to you what you’re gonna do
Should you start to feel real sad, call me
And we can make a plan
To get glad, to get glad
Toss away the sad and have
A better day!

So things aren’t going your way
Hold on, it’s just another day
If your heart is full of blue
A friend like me can help you through
There’s no point to sit and cry
Let’s go, we’ll get up and fly
Back to the place where your heart will… sing
again
Sing again
Sing again

EVERYONE SINGS:
Let’s go – let’s go - c’mon with me
Let’s go – let’s go - just wait and see
Let’s go – let’s go - c’mon with me
Let’s go – let’s go - just wait and see

Let’s go – let’s go - c’mon with me
Let’s go – let’s go - just wait and see
Let’s go – let’s go - c’mon with me
Let’s go – let’s go - just wait and see
Wait and see

When something’s got you terribly blue
It’s up to you what you’re gonna do
Should you start to feel real sad, call me
And we can make a plan
To get glad, to get glad
Toss away the sad and have
A better day!

A better day!
A better day!
Track Name: Reading a Book
Reading a book, anything can happen when
you’re reading a book
Go to the shelf, pick up a book, take a second look

Paddle down the river in an old canoe
Pick up a book, you can travel far too
Maybe travel slowly, maybe go fast
It’s all a great journey as the words go past

Reading a book, anything can happen when
you’re reading a book
Go to the shelf, pick up a book, take a second look

Saddle up your pack and get on a horse
Time to take a journey, time to get lost
Words fill up the pages, pages fill books
Chapters help you stop for the nighttime

Reading a book, anything can happen when
you’re reading a book
Go to the shelf, pick up a book, take a second look

You can’t judge a book by its cover
You can’t know the end unless you start
So the best thing to do and
You can do it too

Reading a book, anything can happen when
you’re reading a book
Go to the shelf, pick up a book, take a second look

Wild kingdom spread out at your feet
The king of the jungle thinks you’re a neat treat
Screaming, crazy man comes out of the sky
Asks “how’re you doing”,” you fly… away…

Reading a book, anything can happen when
you’re reading a book
Go to the shelf, pick up a book, take a second look

Reading a book, anything can happen when
you’re reading a book
Go to the shelf, pick up a book, take a second look
Track Name: My Horse
My horse had a coat
Her coat was brown
Couldn’t really see her
‘Cause the ground was brown

Where’s my horse,
Where’s my horse
Can’t really see her and I just don’t know
Where’s my horse, where’s my horse
Which way’d she go

My horse ran
She ran away
Which way’d she go
Well I just can’t say

My horse jumped
She jumped so high
Over the moon
With a cow by her side

Where’s my horse,
Where’s my horse
Can’t really see her and I just don’t know
Where’s my horse, where’s my horse
Which way’d she go

My horse hopped
She hopped away
Didn’t see her again
‘Till New Year’s Day

My horse she danced
Danced up a storm
Wind came a long and
Blew her home

There’s my horse, there’s my horse
Wind came a long and blew her home
There’s my horse, there’s my horse
She’s been gone so long!

Where’s your horse? Where’s your horse?
Wind came along and blew her home
There’s your horse! There’s your horse!
She’s been gone so long!

There’s my horse
There’s my horse
There’s my horse

Awesome
Track Name: Macaroni and Cheese
My stomach’s growlin’ like a bear in a fight
My mothers’ tellin’ me, what I might like
I’ve heard it all, but I, haven’t heard it right
Nothing can please me like that gooey, cheesy sight

Macaroni and cheese, is so good to me
Macaroni and cheese, makes me say please

My mother’s pourin’ cheese in a pot
Mumbling loud how she makes this a lot
Three meals a day means she’s been there before
I wish she’d hurry I’m just pacin’ the floor

Macaroni and cheese, is so good to me
Macaroni and cheese, makes me say please

Well that, orange glows not the sun
I won’t leave here ‘till I’m done
I got mine, can I have, some of yours
Macaroni and cheese makes me feel, so full of love

Steamy, sassy ripples of cheesy heat
I’ve got my lunch and it can’t be beat
Each orange curl always gives me a thrill
I’ll keep on eatin’ ‘till I, get my fill

Macaroni and cheese, is so good to me
Macaroni and cheese, makes me say please, please, please

Macaroni and cheese, is so good to me
Macaroni and cheese, makes me say please, please, please
Track Name: I Got a New Friend
I got a new friend, he’s an alien
His mother’s got three eyes
I’m not sure if she’s disguised

I got a new friend, he’s an alien
He kind of makes me laugh
He’s got spots like a giraffe

We play balloons in the afternoon
We eat snacks out on the moon
We soar the skies
It’s magic how time flies

I got a new friend, she’s an alien
Her pet has his own clothes and
I can’t find his nose

I got a new friend, she’s an alien
Her skin is tinted green and
Her room is always clean

We play balloons in the afternoon
We eat snacks out on the moon
We soar the skies
It’s magic how time flies

I got a new friend, it’s an alien,
I’m not sure if it’s a boy
A girl or just a toy

I got a new friend, it’s an alien
It’s feet don’t really move
Still it doesn’t like to lose

We play balloons in the afternoon
We eat snacks out on the moon
We soar the skies
It’s magic how time flies

We play balloons in the afternoon
We eat snacks out on the moon
We soar the skies
It’s magic how time flies
Track Name: Sam Reprise - Zoom
Boom.
Track Name: Race Car
Race Car, smokin’ down the track
Race Car, already comin’ back
Can’t wait in a hurry
Gotta get there first,
Race Car, Race Car

Morning breaks, the sky is blue, fans in stands abound
Race tracks’ a big long oval, sunshine pours on down
The buzz around the track says, the race today will tell
The King of all the race cars, the fastest of them all

The racers line up at the pole, engines revving high
Car numbers and team colors, sparkle in the light
At last when all is ready, the flag finally comes down
Roaring just like thunder, the cars begin their rounds

Race Car, smokin’ down the track
Race Car, already comin’ back
Can’t wait in a hurry
Gotta get there first,
Race Car, Race Car

Tires spin, engines blow, or they might just stall
Every driver does their best, to avoid the wall
But every single race car, on every race car track
Has to make a pit stop, when they run out of gas

Pit stop hurry up
Change the tires, fill ‘er up
Pit stop
Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up!

Afternoon shadows, fall across the track
After all those miles, there’s no turning back
With the pedal to the metal,
the race will soon be won by
The King of all the race cars,
the fastest of them all

Race Car, smokin’ down the track
Race Car, already comin’ back
Can’t wait in a hurry
Gotta get there first,
Race Car, Race Car

Race Car, smokin’ down the track
Race Car, already comin’ back
Can’t wait in a hurry
Gotta get there first,
Race Car, Race Car, Race Car!
Track Name: Love is a Superpower
Deep inside me
I’ve got a superpower
I’m strong as can be
Doesn’t matter the hour

I’ve got love behind me
I’ve got a family tree
I got love, love, love, love, love

Deep inside you
There’s a superpower
Stays warm when it’s cool
It’s sweet, never sour

I’ve got love behind me
I’ve got a family tree
I’ve got friends here with me
I got love, love, love, love, love
Love is a superpower

Give love, get love, Give love
Ahh

Give love, get love
Give love, get love
Give love, get love
Ahh

Deep in us all
We’ve got a superpower
We’ll light up the world like a meteor shower
And fast as can be, hearts blooming flowers
All over the land, leaping tower to tower

I got love behind me (I got love behind me)
I’ve got a family tree (I’ve got a family tree)
I’ve got friends here with me (I’ve got friends)
I got love, love, love, love, love
I got love, love, love, love, love
I got love, love, love, love
Love is a superpower
Love is a superpower

Love, love is a superpower
Love, love is a superpower
Love is a superpower
Love is a superpower, love woah
Love, Love is a superpower, love
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yea-ah Yeah
Track Name: The Adventure Song
I pack my bags when I get to go on an adventure
I’ll fuel my ship and take lots of food on an adventure
I'm looking up to the sky
I’ll hug my friends when I say goodbye

I go to space to visit the stars on my adventure
I’ll see the rays of a bright new sun on my adventure
There’s so much to see in the galaxy,
What comes next?
What’s waiting for me?

So much to see in the galaxy
So much to see in the galaxy
So much to see in the galaxy
It’s all waiting for me…

What comes next, what’s waitin’ for me
What comes next, what’s waitin’ for me
What comes next, what’s waitin’ for me
Let’s go and see

Let’s pack our bags and go on our adventure,
Let’s fuel our ship and take lots of food on our adventure
We’re looking up to the sky,
Let’s hug our friends and say good-bye

LET’S GO! ON OUR ADVENTURE!
Track Name: Coney Island Crazy
Clocks says 6 it’s a wee bit early in the morning still I’m raring to go
I’m going to the ocean where the people are-a floatin’ but the
Boardwalk’s the place for the show

It’s chock full of rides and amusements besides, a dream come true by the sea
One thrill then another, but don’t you lose your mother
You’re safer when she can see-- you go

Coney Island Crazy
Coney Island Crazy
Heaven on earth, just got to get in line first
It’s Coney Island Crazy for me!

Swimming is living and the water looks fine but the Wonder Wheel’s all I can see
The grownups in suits, I don’t give a hoot
Luna Park’s the place to be!

I hate to say but I have to admit, I might be a little afraid
Of that Parachute Jump, do I really have to JUMP?
I hope I make the grade - cause I’m…

Coney Island Crazy
Coney Island Crazy
Heaven on earth, just got to get in line first
It’s Coney Island Crazy for me!

After the -- Tea Cups and the Circuit 2000 I’m
Gonna try the new Pirate Jet
I’ll be a Su-per Swinger to the Himalaya and Motorcycle Jump higher yet

I know you’re thinking how hungry I’ll be, just
Follow me to Stillwell and Surf, It’s a
Coney dog haven, an original craving, Coney Island for all it’s worth – it’s…

Coney Island Crazy
Coney Island Crazy
Heaven on earth, just got to get in line first
It’s Coney Island Crazy for me!

Clocks says 10 it’s a wee bit early in the EVENING I’m not ready to go
I want to stay down by the ocean where the mermaids are-a floating and the boardwalk’s the place for the show – I’m…

Coney Island Crazy
Coney Island Crazy
Heaven on earth, just got to get in line first
It’s Coney Island Crazy for me!

Coney Island Crazy
Coney Island Crazy
Heaven on earth, just got to get in line first
It’s Coney Island Crazy for me!
