Sammy the Spider

Hi All,

The next song lyric I'd like to post from the new children's album (but still fun for adults!) is "Sammy the Spider."

This is a storytelling song we wrote for the album, and I am going to try to draw a little children's book to go with the lyrics. It's a fun story. Hope you enjoy!

Verse 1
Sammy the spider was on a mission 
To move from the bathroom to the kitchen 
He gathered his things and put 'em in a bag 
Said goodbye to his mom and dad 


His 47 siblings begged  'stay here instead' 
But he went ahead and slid down his spider web 
Like a gun slinger in the old wild west 
He clinched his teeth 
and squinted his eyes 
And dared the world to put him to the test 

Chorus 1 

Sammy the spider 
Sure was a tiger 
Pulled his knee socks up higher 
All eight of them 
He was on a mission 
From the bathroom to the kitchen 
He was a real fighter 
Sammy the spider 

Verse 2
The hallway opened up 
like the great unknown that day 
A vast expanse in which many a spider lost his way 
His nerves were jumpy as he cleared the hall 
He turned the corner, and that's when he saw 

A shadow cast, a menacing shape 
It looked like a monster, complete with a cape 
He snuck and he creeped and karate chopped with his hands 
Just to discover
 it was nothing other 
Than a dust ball back lit by a lamp 

Chorus 2

Sammy the spider 
Sure was a tiger 
Pulled his knee socks up higher 
All eight of them 
He was on an expedition 
An impossible mission 
He was real fighter 
Sammy the spider 

Bridge: 
Tired and thirsty, he began to lose heart 
Just a sad spider alone in the dark 
He pulled a tattered picture out of his bag 
He could almost hear those glistening counters
 and lovely painted cabinets whisper
"Come on Sammy, keep moving ahead..." 

Short Verse 3
So he pulled up his britches and held his head up high 
He focused all four eyes, and kept them on the prize 
He didn't flinch at shadows, he just passed em by 
Weary and exhausted, 
he kept on walkin'  
until he finally arrived 

Chorus 3

Sammy the spider 
Sure was a tiger 
Pulled his knee socks up higher 
All eight of them 
He completed his mission 
He made it to the kitchen 
He was real fighter 
That Sammy the spider 

Outro:
Sammys got an apartment in the sky rise of the kitchen 
With children of his own now, his parents come and visit
