    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.

about

Sam's alien friend, Tripp, tells him that it's okay to be blue. She'll help him solve his problems and they'll have "a better day."

lyrics

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!
