about

Turkey Andersen thinks everything deserves a song. The super and sublime. That's why he's tackled the big and small issues here in his debut EP. Trapped inside of your shoe because of a knot? There's a song for that. Bemoaning rain on a day off? There's a song for that. Wore the wrong clothes while time travelling? Song.

The whole family will enjoy singing along and bouncing around to this sparkling collection of quick, perky, clever, comical and touching tunes. Andersen's friendly voice leads us through lyrics designed to spark imaginations, crack smiles, and allow the mind to wander.

Fans of pop/rock like the Beatles, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Richman, and similar will eat up Turkey Andersen's debut EP.

Track Name: If A Sandwich Was a Sandwich
If a sandwich was a pillow then the bread would be the pillow case
If a sandwich was a letter then the bread would be the walls of the "H"
If a sandwich was a planet then the crust would be the crust
If a sandwich was a friendship then the bread would be the trust
If a sandwich was two sandwiches then you would have too much to eat.
Track Name: There's a Knot in the Lace of My Shoe
There's a knot in the lace of my shoe
And I'm not exactly sure what to do
To undo what I've done
It's a really tricky one
There's a knot in the lace of my shoe

There's a knot in the lace of my shoe
And I'm not exactly sure what to do
To undo what I've done
It's a really tricky one
There's a knot in the lace of my shoe

How did I ever get into this mess?
Don't want to ask for help.
I tied it a little too tight I guess.
I can't believe
All the trouble I got
All because I tied a double knot
Now I have one foot that's cold and one that's not
It's hot.

There's a knot in the lace of my shoe
And I'm not exactly sure what to do
To undo what I've done
It's a really tricky one
There's a knot in the lace of my shoe
Can you undo what I've done?
It's a really tricky one
There's a knot in the lace of my shoe
Track Name: The Rain Has To Fall
Well the rain has to fall 'cause we need all the water
But why's it have to fall in the middle of the day?
I prefer rain at night when it falls like it oughta
So I can hear it on the roof as I try to drift asleep

And the roof gets wet
the house gets wet
the trees get wet
the grass gets wet
the flowers gets wet
the skunk gets wet
the driveway gets wet
the window gets wet

Drops in a puddle create circles inside circles
And drops on the pavement look like little crowns
When it rains on our street, there are streams by the sidewalks
Our own personal rivers that rush into town

And the town gets wet
The streets get wet
The buildings get wet
The people get wet
The umbrellas get wet
Tips of shoes get wet
The cars get wet
The trucks get wet
The dogs get wet
The cats get wet
The birds get wet
The fish get wet
The policeman gets wet
The mailbox gets wet
The bikes get wet
The hats get wet
The kids get wet
The signs get wet
The schools get wet
The library gets wet
The stones get wet
The mountains get wet
The beaches get wet
The bridges get wet
The grave stones get wet
The squirrels get wet
The stores get wet
Track Name: Time Travel Clothes
I’m walking through the village in my Beatles T-Shirt
My Beatles T-Shirt, my Beatles T-Shirt
I’m walking through the village in my Beatles T-Shirt
I’ve made a big mistake.

I’m getting crazy looks from a farmer and a horse
A farmer and a horse, a farmer and a horse
I’m getting crazy looks from a farmer and a horse
I’ve made a big mistake.

Everybody knows when you’re traveling in time
You have to wear the proper clothes
Everybody knows when you’re traveling in time
You have to wear the perfect clothes

I’m running to the castle with my sneakers on
My sneakers on, my sneakers on
I’m running to the castle with my sneakers on
I’ve made a big mistake

Standing on the drawbridge there’s a group of knights
A gang of knights, big angry knights
Standing on the drawbridge there’s a group of knights
I’ve made a big mistake

Chorus

They take me to kneel before the king
Kneel before the king, kneel before the king
They make me kneel before the king
Cause I made this big mistake

The king asks me if I’m a traveling fool
A traveling fool, a traveling fool
The king asks me if I’m a traveling fool
“Why yes,” I say, “I am.”

Chorus

The king asks me to perform a trick
A magic trick, an amusing trick
The king commands me to perform a trick
To prove I’m a traveling fool

So I push the button on my time travel belt
My time travel belt, my time travel belt
So I push the button on my time travel belt
And disappear in a puff of smoke.
Track Name: Hot and Stuffy
Hot and stuffy
Hot and stuffy
This room is so
Hot and stuffy

Throw open the window
Throw it open wide
Let’s let all of the fresh air inside

Cold and Breezy
Cold and Breezy
This room is so
Cold and Breezy

Oh, close the window
Close the window tight
Let’s keep all of the fresh air outside.
Hot and stuffy
Hot and stuffy
This room is so
Hot and stuffy

Let’s crack the window
Just a little bit
Let’s let some of that fresh air inside

Nice and comfy
Nice and comfy
This room is so
Nice and comfy
Track Name: I Am So Glad That I Found My Hat
I am so glad I found my hat.
I am so glad I found my hat.
Now I can go out in the snow
And I won't be so terribly cold.

I am so smitten, I found my mitten.
I am so smitten, I found my mitten.
Now I can go out in the snow
And I won't be so awfully cold.

Oh how I love, I found my glove.
Oh how I love, I found my glove.
Now I can go out in the snow
And I won't be so dreadfully cold.

I don't want to gloat, but I found my coat.
I don't want to gloat, but I found my coat.
Now I can go out in the snow
And I won't be so horribly cold.

I'd like to hoot, I found my boot.
I'd like to hoot, I found my boot.
Now I can go out in the snow
And I won't be so uncomfortably cold.
Track Name: Snowbank Routine
All I want to do
Is show you my routine
That I made up for climbing this snowbank

All I want to do
Is show you my routine
That I made up for climbing this snowbank

It’s getting dark
It’s getting late
It’s getting cold
But I’m not cold at all.

All I want to do
Is show you my routine
That I made up for climbing this snowbank

It’s getting dark
It’s getting late
It’s getting cold
But I’m not cold at all.

First you jump over there
If you’re lucky you can fly through the air
Then you land in that pile
If you were here I’m sure you’d smile at me
You’d smile.

All I want to do
Is show you my routine
That I made up for climbing this snowbank

It’s getting dark
It’s getting late
It’s getting cold
But I’m not cold at all.
Track Name: Night Is a Blanket
Night is a blanket, softer than anything
Everyone's sleeping
Even the cacti are dreaming
It's just me and the crickets
Night is a blanket but I'm not ready for sleeping

Night is a blanket, warmer than anything
Everyone's sleeping
Even the snowmen are dreaming
It's just me and the nightlight
Night is a blanket but I'm not ready for sleeping
Night is a blanket but I'm not ready for sleeping
