Track Name: 1999
When I was a little boy - back in elementary school,
I thought pretending to be a Jedi - was really cool.
I liked Godzilla and Jurassic Park,
but at night I was afraid to step into dark.

For my birthday I got a VHS of The Lion King
and ever since then I love to sing.

Well, wasn’t that a lovely time
back in 1999?
Oh, life seemed like a breeze
way back in the 90s.

doo boo doop…

That summer I fell in love - with “Blue (da be dee)”
and a few weeks later - with MTV.
I got addicted - and forgot about my toys
once I had started dancing like a Backstreet Boy.

Somehow, I have no idea how,
I managed to ignite a dance brigade in 4th grade.

Well, wasn’t that a lovely time
back in 1999?
Oh, life seemed like a breeze
way back in the 90s.

All that - happened just a few years before I knew heartbreak.
All I really cared about then was that mommy brought home frosted flakes

Well, wasn’t that a lovely time
back in 1999?
Oh, life seemed like a breeze
way back in the 90s.

Well, wasn’t that a lovely time
back in 1999?
Oh, life seemed like a breeze
way back in the 90s.
Track Name: Father & Son (Superman Song)
Dad, you said that somewhere I have another pair of parents.
What do you mean by that - please, could you be transparent?
Can I just pretend to still be your son?
I promise I'll be a good one.

My boy, don't worry, you will always be my son.
Your mom and I may have found you but you are our number one.
I understand you want to know why you have superpowers.
You came to us one extraordinary night during a meteor shower.

You see, you must have traversed…
How do I say this…? You are the answer, son,
to "are we alone in the universe?".

Son, you’ll have to decide what kind of man you want to be,
cause if it is good or bad it will change the course of history.
With great power comes great responsibility

They’ll call you Superman
Promise me you'll try to do the best you can
You may be strong
but that doesn't make it easier to judge right from wrong.

Dad, I’m hoping to inspire people to do the right thing
but despite my best intentions I don't always know myself what I am supposed to be doing.
The world doesn’t just work in black and white
in a no-win situation I wish I had you by my side

You and Mom
are the best things I have ever had.
When I grow up
I want to be like you, Dad. - I want to be like you, Dad.
Track Name: Dedication
Hey, what’s up? How's my boo?
I just want to snuggle, hug and kiss you.
I’m so happy that you’re my girl.
How about forever? Let's give it a whirl!

Oh wow… my heart just twirled!
You're my favorite in the whole wide world!
Would you like to be my wife?
you better get ready for the best cuddles of your life!

This is a dedication to you my dear
Just a little appreciation for all these beautiful years
Oh, what a happy time with you
what a happy time

How awesome can life be?
We’re a happy little family.
I’m so glad I married you.
The best thing in the world is just… being with you.

This is a dedication to you my dear
Just a little appreciation for all these beautiful years
Oh, what a happy time with you
what a happy time

It's been so long
So I wrote you this song
It's been overdue
oh baby, I love you

This is a dedication to you my dear
Just a little appreciation for all these beautiful years
Oh, what a happy time with you
what a happy time

This is for you, my dear, I love you
This is for you, my dear, I love you
This is for you, my dear, I love you
This is for you, my dear, I love you
Track Name: Mermaids
I like mermaids. I have always liked mermaids.
They are cool. I’ve met them in swimming school.
I know a few mermaids and I like them very much.
We try to keep in touch.

I like mermaids. I think they're super cute.
But they don't talk very much. Maybe they are mute.
But I don't mind that, cause I like how they smile.
So I try to hold my breath like... mermaid style.

Badabadabada...

On my first day in swimming school I almost drowned
but then came a mermaid and pulled me even further down
I got the shivers running down my spine
But then I was really surprised - cause I was fine

Badabadabada...

I know I will never forget this
when she gave me a kiss
yap, that's what I miss

Badabadabada...

I like mermaids. Do you want to be my mermaid?
Track Name: Wouldn't It Be Nice
Wouldn’t it be nice to have
more time to enjoy
ordinary things?

Wouldn’t it be nice to have
endless curiosity and appreciate
every little thing?

Wouldn’t it be nice
to get really, really excited
about super simple things again

I guess sometimes I wish I was still a child

doo doo doo doo…

Wouldn’t it be nice to
not have to be an adult
in a grown-up world

I guess sometimes I wish I was still as innocent and pure as a child
