    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.

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!

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

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

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

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!
