Marz Barz Lyrics

Marz Barz
words & music ゥ by Jan Harmon 1984-86

The Martians invited us up for tea
We will arrive at a quarter past three
They値l fly us to Mars with a Martian named Marge
And they値l take us to their house in their Mars Barge

Chorus:
Marz Barz eat 粗m in your cars bars
better than Atari starry Sagitary-arrs bars
Screen stahs eat them in your Cahs Bahs
Yummy-ummy
sticky-icky
creamy-eemy
juicy-uicy
munchy-unchy
slurpy-urpy
gooey-ooey
Marz-Barz

They will be serving us Marzipan
Campbell痴 Marzmallow soup from a can
Orange Marzmalade over marzcaroni stars
Marzachino cherries and Marz Barz

Chorus:

Then to the theater we will go
We will be seeing Marz-cell Marz-ceau
Marzcello Marztriani will strum his guitars
and we値l have a few Marztinis in Marz Barz

Chorus:

Then we値l go strolling though the canals
We値l watch Marz mongooses in their corrals
We値l watch marzupials hop metearrz
And over there痴 a couple of Marz Barz

Chorus:

Then we will tell them we must be off
We値l say adios and Marzeltov
And as we depart we値l see the canalis
And the ruby luminary of the Marz Barialis

Chorus:

Now maybe tomorrow they値l visit me
I値l serve them their favorite galactical tea
Hydrogencicles and Pickled cigars
Cosmologic lollipops and Hippopotamarz Bars

Chorus:

 

What It Is
From Marz Barz
Word & Music by Bob Reid
Copyright ゥ Bob Reid 1989

It might be black It might be red
I found it underneath my bed
I swept it out into a pile
and it looked at me with a great big smile

What it is I don稚 know
But I think it痴 startin to grow
I used to keep it in my drawer
But it doesn稚 fit there any more

It might be orange it might be gray
I think it痴 from San Jose
When the zoo keeper came to take it away
It ran clear to Monterey

chorus:

I put it on a great big box
and covered it with dirty socks
I壇 send it to summer camp
But that would take too many stamps

chorus:

It might be brown it might be green
Last night it stuck to the TV screen
My dad tried to pull it off
it said it just wanted to kiss Gorbachev

chorus:

It might be yellow it might be pink
It went down the bathroom sink
When the plumber came to take it out
It came out the water spout

chorus:

 

Seeing With My Ears
From Marz Barz
Word & Music ゥ by Tom Hunter

I was sittin in my kitchen talkin with my friend
When my friend said he knew there were cookies in the tin
I knew he couldn稚 see them wondered how could he tell
He must致e seen them there by the way they smell

Chorus:
Seein with my ears and seein with my nose
Seein with my fingers and seein with my toes
There痴 magic in the morning and a big surprise
All the things that I can see without my eyes

I was on my way to the grocery store
I had a little bit of candy but I wanted some more
I was lookin at a bird that was flyin pretty low
I saw the curb with my foot when I stubbed my toe

Chorus:

Yesterday in school the teacher said we could begin
So she opened up the door and let an animal in
We had to tell her what it was when the room was dark
I knew it was a dog 祖ause cats can稚 bark

Chorus:

Last night in bed I was sound asleep
I saw some people in a field
they were playin with some sheep
I was sleepin it was dark so do you know what?
There must be other ways to see when your eyes are shut!

Chorus:

Don稚 You Go Reachin Across My Plate
From Marz Barz
Word & Music ゥ by Oscar Willis   

Now there痴 just one thing
That I just can稚 stand
and that is sittin at the table with an ill mannered man
When he痴 sittin on your left before you slip in a bite
he will reach across your plate now I know that痴 not right
Now I like to eat just as well as any man
But there痴 some simple rules that even a fool could understand
like when you致e had one helping you壇 like another piece of cake
Don稚 You Go Reachin Across my Plate!

Chorus:
Don稚 You Go Reachin Across my Plate!
Don稚 You Go Reachin Across my Plate!
Don稚 You Go Reachin
Don稚 You Go Reachin Across my Plate!

Now at dinner last week at my sister Mary痴
Some guy reached across my plate
and dipped his coat sleeve in my gravy
Now I didn稚 say a word
I looked him straight in the eye
He reached across my plate and swiped a big chunk of pie
Now I don稚 care if you do it for a prank
And I don't care if you need something to drink
全pecially when I知 out and I知 with my date
Don稚 You Go Reachin Across my Plate!

Chorus:

Now at a party last night with all the folks
you know everyone was there
And it was no joke they had barbecued 叢ossum
with rattlesnake gravy chicken fried skunk
You know it smelled real crazy
Now everything was fine but one thing had me blue some guy reached across my plate for the armadillo stew
Now folks when you池e out to dinner I want you to act real nice say,
撤lease pass the salsa. 溺ay I please have the rice?
But just because you happened to come in a little late
Don稚 You Go Reachin Across my Plate!

Chorus:

 

Garbage
From Marz Barz
words & music ゥ Tom Hunter   

Toilet paper and paper towels Come with a tube inside
and when the paper痴 all used up We throw the tubes aside
But a man I know makes rocket ships and telescopes from tubes
We just call it Garbage when we don稚 know what to do!

Chorus:
We just call it Garbage when we don稚 know what to do with it!
We just call it Garbage when we don稚 know what to do!

Now down by the factory there痴 a great big garbage bin
And when the thread gets all used up they throw the old spools in
But a man said, 泥on稚 throw those away!
的値l make puppets from the spools!
We just call it Garbage when we don稚 know what to do!

Chorus:

Now milk comes all dressed up in waxy cardboard carton coats
And instead of throwin them away folks make them into boats
If we had enough milk cartons they cold carry me and you
We just call it Garbage when we don稚 know what to do!

Chorus:

Now lots of things get thrown away that really shouldn稚 be
And we can have our own ideas when we start to see
There might be another use or something we can do
We just call it Garbage when we don稚 know what to do!

Chorus:

 

Do You Care About Earth?

Words by Michelle Peters Music by Bob Reid
Copyright ゥ Bob Reid 1989

chorus:
Pollution is killing our Earth
Killing the miracle of birth
Do you know what it痴 worth?
Do you Care about Earth?
Do you Care about Earth?

It痴 killing our birds
and our cattle herds
To get rid of it
it痴 gonna take more than words

chorus:

It痴 ruining the sea,
Killing the fish,
served on a dish and
into you and me

chorus:

It can come out of our bus
and into us
We need to get rid of it or
it will get rid of us.

chorus:

 

Habitat
From Marz Barz
words & music ゥ Wm C. Oliver

Chorus:
Habitat, Habitat
Have to have a Habitat
Habitat, Habitat
Have to have a Habitat
Habitat, Habitat
Have to have a Habitat
You have to have a Habitat to carry on!

The Ocean is a habitat, A very special habitat
It痴 where the deepest water痴 at,
It痴 where our future food is at
It痴 where the biggest mammals at
It keeps the atmosphere intact
The Ocean is a habitat that we depend on!

Chorus:

The Forest is a Habitat, A very special Habitat
It痴 where the tallest trees are at,
it痴 where a bear can scratch her back
It keeps the ground from rolling back,
Renews the oxygen, in fact
The Forest is a habitat that we depend on!

Chorus:

The River is a habitat, A very special habitat
It痴 where the freshest water痴 at
 for people fish and muskrat
But when the people toss their trash
the River takes the biggest rap
The River is a habitat that we depend on

Chorus:

Now people are different from foxes and rabbits
Affect the whole world with our bad habits
Better to love it while we still have it or Rat-a-tat-tat
Our habitat痴 gone

Chorus:

 

Walking on My Wheels
From Marz Barz
Words & Music ゥ by Mark Cohen

My name is Terry and I知 nine
Take a look at this amazing chair of mine
Silver and Black and the wheels go round
Just a little push and I can really cover ground

Walking on my wheels I知 walkin on my wheels
People let me tell you just how good it feels
I can go anywhere if I致e got my chair
Watch me now I知 walkin on my wheels

Why don稚 my legs work? I don稚 know
Something happened to them very long ago
But I work out every day and my arms are strong
They池e just the thing for walking me along

Chorus:

Every day when I go to school
I ride in a van that痴 really pretty cool
The lift takes my chair right down to the floor
Help me with the straps and I値l race you to the door

Chorus:

Wasn稚 it funny when that substitute teacher
Asked us to name that silly looking creature
I raised my hand she nearly dropped her chalk
She thought I couldn稚 think just because I couldn稚 walk

Chorus:

Can you come over ask your folks
We can use the computer or just tell jokes
And maybe late on I can come and visit you
If your building has a ramp so my chair can visit too!

Chorus:

My friend Jack rides a chair like me
But he痴 really old he痴 almost twenty three!
He can shoot a basketball just like Dr. J
And just last week he started teachin me to play!

Chorus:  

Hi Fi Stereo Color TV
From Marz Barz
Words and music by Jay Ungar & John Cohen  

There is a town in this country
and none of the children there could read
Hi-Fi Stereo Color TV,  Stereo Color TV

For the printed page they had no use
And they treated newspapers with abuse
Hi-Fi Stereo Color TV,  Stereo Color TV

Now the school board was surprised indeed
to find that none of the kids could read
Hi-Fi Stereo Color TV,  Stereo Color TV

And lo, it did soon come to pass
they replaced the teachers in every class with a
Hi-Fi Stereo Color TV,  Stereo Color TV

The children they soon learned to read
and then they found they had no need for the
Hi-Fi Stereo Color TV,  Stereo Color TV

So a plan was made by the clever creatures
to record their lessons for their teachers
Hi-Fi Stereo Color TV,  Stereo Color TV

With a video recorder on every chair
the children were free to roam everywhere from the
Hi-Fi Stereo Color TV,  Stereo Color TV

Now the children roam the hills like elves
and the TV sets just watch themselves
Hi-Fi Stereo Color TV,  Stereo Color TV

Junk Food
From Marz Barz
Word

Walked out of my house
Picked up my bike
went down to the corner
for some food that I like
I went to the store
I opened the door
I知 gonna buy a little but I know I値l want more

Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food痴 gettin to me

I opened the bag
and read what it had
My heart began to sink
and it made me sad
Cause all of those things
that I love to chew
Are making me sick and they池e making me blue

Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food痴 gettin to me

Sodium Monophosphate
Monosodium Glutamate
In every little nibble
every bite that I take
Carbohydrates and Protein
I want on my plate
But tell me what is all of this other stuff I just ate?

Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food Oo oo oo oo oo oo
Junk Food痴 gettin to me

 

Questions
From Marz Barz
Words and Music ゥ by Bob Reid
Copyright ゥ Bob Reid 1989

Why is the sky blue? Why痴 the Earth round?
Why when I whistle, is there not a sound?
Why do I get sick? And have to wear braces?
Why is it I can稚 tie my shoelaces?

Chorus: So many questions and not enough answers
Is there more music than there are dancers?

Why痴 there sixty minutes in every hour?
Why do my parents have all the power?
Why do some people make fun of others?
Why aren稚 my jokes as good as my brother痴

So many questions and not enough answers
Is there more music than there are dancers?

Why do people have to go to bed ?
Why can稚 we stay up instead?
Why do people have to die?
Why must we all say goodbye?
Why do baseball players always run all those bases?
How does Boris Becker serve all those aces?

So many questions and not enough answers
Is there more music than there are dancers?

Why can稚 an egg yolk cure all my poison oak?
How did the Earth start? Will it all fall apart?
Why do some people have to get cancer?
Is there a person who knows all the answers?

So many questions and not enough answers
Is there more music than there are dancers?
Is there more music than there are dancers?

 

Pockets
From Marz Barz
Words and music ゥ by Tom Hunter

Some are tight and some are floppy
Some have buttons some have snaps
Some are plain and some have pictures and some have zippered flaps
They池e on your arm they池e on your chest
They池e even on your butt
Some are open all the time and some are fastened shut

Chorus:
I致e got pockets in my jacket
Pockets in my jeans
pockets full of nursery rhymes
and pockets full of dreams
I致e got pockets in my jacket, Pockets in my jeans
pockets full of nursery rhymes
and pockets full of dreams

I like to put my hands in my pockets
when it痴 cold to feel the heat
And I wish I had a pocket at the bottom of my pants
so I could warm my feet
The best pocket that we saw all day when we went to the zoo
It wasn稚 on a shirt or a jacket it was on a Kangaroo!

Chorus:

I like to put stuff in my pockets
like rocks and worms and snails
Rubber bands, barrettes and string
and a sandwich all gone stale
But when your pocket gets a hole in it
there痴 really nothin you can do
祖ause everything slides down your leg
and it ends up in your shoe!

Chorus:

Some folks have lots of pockets
Some don稚 have many at all
And some folks pockets are all filled up
while others don稚 have much at all
And it doesn稚 seem fair for those with nothin
When others have lots of pull
So maybe we could work on changing things
Until every pocket is full

Chorus:

 

Planets
From Marz Barz
Words and musicゥ by Bob Reid
Copyright ゥ Bob Reid 1989

Mercury is hot
Like being in a pot
Venus is much hotter like boiling in hot water
Earth it feels just right
either day or night
Mars is big and red
I can see it from my bed
Though Jupiter is round
There isn稚 any ground
Telescopes can see Neptune
I hope I get one pretty soon
Uranus it is green
when it can be seen
Pluto痴 cold as ice
It痴 no one痴 Paradise!
The gravity of the Sun
Holds them all as one

 

Shine Like a Star
From Marz Barz
Words and Music ゥ by Minnie O鱈eary

When I look out in the night
I can see a million lights
I can see a million stars
People like you and I
We sparkle like the sky
Just by being who we are

Chorus:
Shine like a morning star
Spreading light from near to far
Feeling proud of who you are
Shine like a Star
Each star has it痴 place to be
Gazing through eternity
Together they light up all the sky
Different as we all may be
This old world needs you and me
Needs the special light we have to share

Chorus:

There is no one just like you
There is no one just like me
We are all one of a kind
In this great big universe
there痴 a place for all of us
A place to grow a place to dream

Chorus:
