about

Ben Rudnick and Friends, an award winning band specializing in music for the entire family, are planning a series of digital single releases in 2018 beginning with the song, Little Bitty Critter.

Little Bitty Critter tells the tale of a bold mouse whose love of cheese causes Ben to “flip his lid” and Ben’s fat cat to “rock and roll.” A little rockabilly, a little Man in Black, Little Bitty Critter will get the whole family singing and rocking time and again.

Throughout their eighteen-year run, Ben Rudnick and Friends have become favorites for fans of all ages. With seven Parents’ Choice Awards and countless other awards to their credit, the band is best known for their celebratory live performances. From the east coast to Colorado the band has played over 870 shows to date.

Multiple award winners in family music, Ben Rudnick & Friends was born out of the recording "Emily Songs," originally a knock-off project for Ben’s daughter’s birthday party. Followed by “Fun and Games,” “Blast Off,” and “Grace’s Bell,” the band further defined their adventurous, high-energy blend of happy, upbeat music. Delivering interpretations of favorite, classic songs combined with infectious original tunes turned out to be a winner. All three recordings won the coveted Parents’ Choice Award, among many others including a John Lennon Songwriting Award. With the release of “A Frog Named Sam” in 2009, the band found an international audience. Now, with twelve CDs in their catalog and a play based on their friend, Sam the Frog, the band continues its streak of excellence with digital single releases.

Ben Rudnick and Friends consists of Ben Rudnick (guitar), John Zevos (mandolin), Chris Zevos (bass), and Jared Steer (percussion). Special guest on Little Bitty Critter is Jeff Bird (Cowboy Junkies) on lap steel guitar.

lyrics

I got a little bitty critter comin’ round for cheese
I think it’s a mouse but I'd closed my eyes, I’d closed my eyes to sneeze
That little bitty critter says he wants some cheese
I don’t think he cares, gouda or brie
I got a little bitty critter comin’ round for cheese

I figure my cat should help me out with this
He’s one big white fluff - a ball - a ball you can’t resist
My big white fluff he sleeps all day
The critter stopped by and looked my way
I figure my cat would help me out with this

The mouse stopped in the kitchen and opened up my fridge
He slowly looked around, I thought I’d flip my lid - oh he…
Saw the cheese, he hopped on up
The cheese was gone I could only shout…… AAAAHHH

Hey you mouse bring me back my cheese
I work real hard and I got a cat, a fat cat to please, oh
Hey you mouse I’m looking for you
You can hide but I can hear you chew
Hey you mouse, bring me back my cheese

One more time that mouse came into view
That little bitty critter had pushed his luck - I really thought - that was true
The cat was awake and started to shake, it was time to rock and roll
But the critter had plans, I didn’t know

I got a little bitty critter comin’ round for cheese
I know it’s a mouse who takes anything, anything that he please
My little bitty critter he wants some cheese
I don’t think he cares, gouda or brie
I got a little bitty critter comin’ round for cheese
That little bitty critter keeps comin’ round for cheese
That little bitty critter keeps comin’ round for cheese
