    Well, what can I say? As soon as I started to play this album I wished myself back with the Explorers group! Either as a leader or a child, I don't mind! Any leader of children may agree with me when I say that a child fired up for God is one thing, but to GET children fired up for God can be quite another matter! For anyone with this problem GET THIS ALBUM! The first track, "D'ya Wanna Be In God's Gang" is an 'amended' version of Gary Glitter's oldie! It immediately took me back to my childhood. A wonderful variety of music on this album, rock and roll, blues, calypso/caribbean types, and even an old crackly 20s sounding track! The majority of songs left me thinking and planning how the children in my own church could do this one, how to make costumes for that one etc. In fact, I took the album to my housegroup to sample for those who actually have children and I had a very difficult task to get it back. The children haven't even heard it yet, but from all of us adults in our housegroup a definite thumbs up.

Track Name: Feel I wanna Dance
When I know Your love streaming down from Heaven
When I see the smile in your eyes
When I know the laughter of being forgiven
Then it should not come as a surprise
When I know the joy of this great salvation
When I see the Spirit overflow
Then I loose myself in this liberation
And I cannot help but let it show

And, I feel I, fell I wanna dance
Feel I, feel I wanna dance
Feel I , feel I wanna dance
Track Name: Getting to know God as my dad
I'm getting to know God as my dad
I'm getting to know God as my father
It's mega yeah, to know His love & care
Yes, I'm getting to know I've a dad upstairs

Dad's are often busy with important things to do
But a father in Heaven always has time for you
Dad's are very special but sometimes not around
But a father in Heaven
Always can be found

I'm getting to know God as my dad
I'm getting to know God as my father
It's mega yeah, to know His love & care
Yes, I'm getting to know I've a dad upstairs
Track Name: Jonah , Jonah a fishy tail
God said to Joe, go to Ninevah
Tell those people all about me
Joe said " Nah, It's just too far,
Chose someone else there are plenty of fish in the sea"
He went down to the travel agent, got a ticket
For a boat going the other way
He's made his escape but it was to be to late
As the storm clouds gathered it began to rain
The thunder grew louder the rain it poured
The sailors turned green & prayed to the Lord
Something was fishy, it was Joe
So into the water he had to go

Jonah Jonah, What have you done
Jonah Jonah where have you gone
Jonah Jonah you should have known
When God says go, you don't say no

He took a deep breath as the sea swallowed him
He really wished now
He'd learned how to swim
In at the deep end he was going to drown
It wasn't a whale of a time so God fished him out

A big fish swallowed Jonah & from his insides
Jonah repented & to the Lord cried
He gave the fish indigestion, it could stomach him no more
And the fish was sick all over the shore

When Jonah obeyed in just eight word
one hundred and twenty thousand people turned
God's mercy & compassion is for all men to be saved
It's not for us to pick & choose
But simply obey
Track Name: Song of liberty
O Lord I will sing Your praise
O Lord for the many ways
that Lord You have been so good to me
O Lord I am saved by grace
O Lord what has taken place
Is more, so much more than I can say

Now, I am saved to say
That there's no other way
Salvation's in the name of Jesus
You came & set me free
My song will ever be
A song of liberty in Jesus
Track Name: I dont want to ask for anything
I don't want to ask for anything,
but simply thank You Lord
For You have been so good to me
Much more than I deserve
You answer all my prayers before I even say a word
I don't want to ask for anything
You've already heard

I don't want to ask for anything
but simply thank You Lord
For Jesus You know everything
and everything is Yours
I'll trust the grace & goodness
that have never let me go
I don't want to ask for anything
You already know

When I come to ask for anything
Your already there
Embracing me with mercy
You wrap me in Your care
So I can know the intimacy
Only found in prayer
I don't want to ask for anything
Your already there
Track Name: The Axe & the Sax
Goliath was a soul man, listened to it all the time
To other forms of music he was just a Philistine
He had a go at Israel for their love of rock & roll
If they thought he was out of tune they should
come & tell him so

Goliath was a soul man played a screaming saxophone
Giving Israel the blues down the microphone
Well Israel rick & rolls dead, as dead as it can be
And if you think I'm out of key then come & jam with me

You may say that soul is king of the road
that rock & roll is through
But I'll jam with you, till its proved true
and I'll rock the block off you

The only sound that could be heard was Israels
Knocking knees
So to this percussive sound Goliath made his tease
" are you mice or musicians" he tauntingly said
When from the back david picked up his axe
And went to get ahead

King Saul the main muso
saw Dave with his battered Strat(ocaster)
He cried " oh no you can't go with a capo & that
Take a nice new expensive guitar,
the best money can afford
David said "no", I'll just go with
the anointing of the Lord

Dave & big G began to jam & things they soon grew hot
as riff by riff & groove each gave all they'd got
Goliath blew the meanest blow that took all off his breath
and David prayed before he played Lord help me do my best

David hit the fret board & a wild distorted sound
echoed through the airwaves smashing everything around
Goliath stood in horror frozen by surprise
As a power chord like a rolling stone hit him right between the eyes

As he hit the carpet, as he bit the dust
The Israelites went crazy the Philistines went whoosh
The whole word knows the story
the faith of Davids told
And God's still in the business of using rock & roll
Track Name: two fish & five loaves
Jesus was preaching the gospel to the poor
down in Galilee
the disciples said " Jesus send them home for their tea"
Jesus said "no, there is no way they're going to go
we are going to feed them too"
the disciples looked around & thought what are we going to do
Judas said "Lord there's nothing in the petty cash". Peter said " I could make it to the shops if i dash"
Jesus said " wait a minute, what have we in the place"
The disciples looked worried things were comming to the crunch
When a little boy said " you can have my packed lunch"
Jesus said " that will do nicely, now lets say grace"

Well after they prayed the disciples were amazed & couldn't believe their eyes
the little they had they gave it too the Lord & boy were they surprised

Two fish & five loaves
Two fish & five loaves
Two fish & five loaves of bread
Give it to Jesus & obey what he said
Two fish & five loaves
Two fish & five loaves
Two fish & five loaves of bread
Give it to Jesus & obey what he said

A five thousand hungry bunch
all waiting for their lunch
were filled & satisfied that day
with just two fish & five loaves
and a life that obeys
a miracle took place everybody filled their face
there were baskets of leftover but nothing went to waste
a little given to Jesus goes a very long way
Well after you've prayed you will be amazed & will not believe your eyes
the little you have give it to the Lord
and boy will you be surprised

Two fish & five loaves
Two fish & five loaves
Two fish & five loaves of bread
Give it to Jesus & obey what he said
Two fish & five loaves
Two fish & five loaves
Two fish & five loaves of bread
Give it to Jesus & obey what he said
Track Name: Father in Heaven
Father in Heaven holy is Your name
Your kingdom come Your will be done
let it be the same
Father in Heaven holy is Your name
Your kingdom come Your will be done
let it be the same
On earth as is it in Heaven, on earth as it is in Heaven

Give us today all our daily bread
As we forgive our debtors, so You forgive our debts
Give us today all our daily bread
As we forgive our debtors, so You forgive our debts
and lead us not into temptation
deliver us from evil
and lead us not into temptation
deliver us from evil

For Yours is the kingdom the power & the glory
forever & ever & ever amen
For Yours is the kingdom the power & the glory
forever & ever & ever amen
Track Name: One leg Greg
One leg Greg & wobbly legs Fred
were in the construction industry
they could not agree where the housing site should be
should it be inland or Crumbly-by-the-sea ?

are you building on a beach,
where foundations will not reach
will your sandy castle fall or stand
when the winds of life they blow
will your building up & go
are you building on the rock or on the sand

One leg Greg built a nice semi des res
with the seagulls flopping all around
all was fine until a storm began to build
with a blast & crash the house came tumbling down

are you building on a beach,
where foundations will not reach
will your sandy castle fall or stand
when the winds of life theycome
will your building be undone
are you building on the rock or on the sand

Wobbly legs Fred went to B&Q instead
built on rock deep down foundations went
his house still stands today
its foundations they remain
firm & secure in blue circle cement
Track Name: The fruity song
I am the APPLE of Gods eye
His BANNANA over me is love
He ORANGES His angels
to look after me
as His blessings PLUM-et from above

never have to play the GOOSEBERRY
feel like a LEMON no not me
for wherever this MAN GOS
a RASPBERRY it never blows

the great fruit of God the great fruit of God
the great fruit of God it overflows
the great fruit of God the great fruit of God
the great fruit of God it overflows

I will praise Him on the TANGERINE
praise Him with the MANDARIN
SATSUMA or later you will see
there's always a CLEMENTINE
Track Name: When a knight won his spurs
When a knight won his spurs
In the stories of old
Hes was gentle & brave
He was gallant & bold
With a shield on his arm &
A lance in his hand
For God & for valour
He rode through the land

No charger have I
And no sword by my side
Yet still to adventure & battle I ride
Though back into Storyland
giants have fled
And the knights are no more
And the dragons are dead

Let faith be my shield
And let joy be my steed
'gainst the dragons of anger
The ogres of greed
And let me set free
with the sword of my youth
From the castle of darkness
The power of the truth
Track Name: Unless you change
Unless you change & become like little children
Little children who simply just believe
Unless you change & become like little children
Gods Kingdom you will never see
Unless you change & become like little children
Little children who simply just believe
For whoever welcomes children, welcomes Jesus
And whoever welcomes Jesus welcomes me
Track Name: Name over all
Bells they are ringing
Children are singing
And we are exalting the name over all
Flags they are dancing
The church is advancing
As we are romancing the name over all

Jesus' Kingdom can't be shaken
Jesus' promise can't be broken
Jesus' Lord of all creation
Name over all
Jesus' kingdom can't be shaken
Jesus truth of liberation
Jesus only way to Heaven
The name over all
