Todd McHatton California

Todd McHatton’s dense, psychedelic pop is unlike any kids’ music you’ve ever heard. The closest approximation might be a cross between Magical Mystery Tour-era Beatles and Harry Nilsson… About.com

Track Name: Funny Little Friends
Funny little friends have got it all figured out - Said they know just where to dig and how to get it all out- Might as well go out and play - 'Cause there's more to dig then one way - Spendin' your time diggin' in the ground - Diggin' inside just to try and get out - Well there's more to time then the minutes - And this is it - So dig it - Spendin' your time listening to the sounds - Of funny friends tellin' you what's up in the clouds - And there's more to time then the minutes - This is it so dig it
Track Name: Green Eleven
Hazel likes the way it is - Arms straight up in a green eleven - She opens up her fists - And spreads her seeds into the wind - She's wearing her favorite flowered dress - Makin' a wish they'll someday be - Two tall trees droppin' colored leaves down from the heavens - Just like a green eleven-She takes out her watering can - Like a teapot she pours two drops in - And she opens up her fists - And spreads her seeds into the wind - She's wearing her favorite flowered dress - Makin' a wish they'll someday be - Two tall trees droppin' colored leaves down from the heavens - Just like a green eleven- People stop and wonder why - Those two tall trees seem to scrape the sky - And they open up their fists - Like they're spreading their seeds into the wind - They raise their arms just like this - Makin' a wish there'll someday be - Two tall trees droppin' colored leaves down from the heavens - Just like a green eleven
Track Name: Who Needs Sleep
Had to be done - No way around it - Celia Sheep had to be counted - Who needs sleep? - Celia Sheep says I do - Getting paid in z's doesn't cover expenses - Spendin' her nights jumpin' over the fences - Who needs sleep? - Celia Sheep says I do - Uh eh oh - Uh eh oh - Chicka - Chicka - It shouldn't be so hard - Getting to sleep - While you're lying in a lump - They're lining up - To get you into a dream - It shouldn't be so hard - Getting to sleep - While you're lying in a lump - They're lining up - To get you into a dream - While these little white clouds are floatin' over the fence posts - You're lying in bed - Cozy on your pillows - Who needs sleep? - Celia Sheep says I do - Who needs sleep? - Celia Sheep says I do - Uh eh oh - Uh eh oh - Chicka - Chicka - It shouldn't be so hard - Getting to sleep - While you're lying in a lump - They're lining up - To get you into a dream - It shouldn't be so hard - Getting to sleep - While you're lying in a lump - They're lining up - To get you into a dream - Who a who a who who needs sleep - Ba ba ba - Had to be a way - And Celia found it - She dreamed up somethin' else for the people to count and - Now who gets to sleep? - Celia Sheep says - We do - We do - We do - We do
Track Name: Mr Branch and his Appetizing Apparel
Mr Branch goes out to the back to dig deep deep down down back through the rack - 'Cause he could eat the pants and the shirt off his back you know he feels so strange - It may have been a little accidental snack - Instead of something cold he grabbed a coat from the back - And he could eat his pants and the shirt off his back - You know he feels so strange - Chewed up my shoes - How can it be so - It used to be the place my toes would go - How can it be so - I fear the next to go is the rest of my clothes - Oh no - How can it be so - Chew chew chewin' on the last belt loop - How can it be so - Only thing left is shoelace soup - Mr Branch goes out to the back to dig deep deep down down back through the rack - 'Cause he could eat the pants and the shirt off his back you know he feels so strange - Doesn't want to get fat so he won't eat a hat - Buttons would be gluttonous and that makes him laugh - And he could eat his pants and the shirt off his back - You know he feels so strange - Chewed up my shoes - How can it be so - It used to be the place my toes would go - How can it be so - I fear the next to go is the rest of my clothes - Oh no - How can it be so - Chew chew chewin' on the last belt loop - How can it be so - Only thing left is shoelace soup
Track Name: What Once Was Grand
We traced a million stars into pictures above - Neither one of us knowing who the other was - And all the space and time between us wasn't enough - To keep me from finding you and that's because - When you exhale on a wish then it takes your breath - Like a passenger aboard a soaring dream - Set sail on a search for a wordless yes - And other warm, familiar, unspoken things - The dandelions dreamers blow upon fill the sky - They dart and drift along in shallow loops - Like pieces of a puzzle drift between you and I - Drawing lines connecting stars that brought me to you - And all the things we said about what once was grand - Have come along even better then we'd planned
