SAM'S SEARCH

Oh, where is that cat
Where can SnowCat be
Slinking in the shadows
Stuck up in a tree

Searching near and far
Seeking high and low
Looking for the answer
Where did SnowCat go

SnowCat, I'm talkin' about SnowCat
Where, oh where, I gotta know

(Spoken) 

You know, everyone's looking for something: fortune, fame, even love, sometimes in the wrong places. Me? I'm looking for SnowCat. He's my best friend in the whole world. 

Have you seen him? He's beautiful. Very big, with snow white fur. 

He's kinda hard to miss, but we still might need your help to find him. Do you think you can help us find SnowCat?

(Singing)

Calling SnowCat, SnowCat, SnowCat, Snow....Cat...

(Spoken)

Come on everybody! 
We really do need your help to find SnowCat.

First, everybody:
Clap your hands just like this...(clap on 2 and 4).
That's fantastic!

Next, boys:
You're going to sing with me, and your part goes like this...ready?

SnowCat
SnowCat
SnowCat
SnowCat

Sing out, boys! 
That's big boys and little boys too. 
Great!

OK, girls:
 Big girls and little girls.
You're gonna sing what Dmitri is playing on his horn.
Can you hear that?

SnowCat
SnowCat
SnowCat
SnowCat

Terrific!

OK, everybody:
All together, sing your parts!

SnowCat
SnowCat
SnowCat
SnowCat

Alright! If we can just keep it going, we're sure to find SnowCat any minute now.

SnowCat
SnowCat
SnowCat
SnowCat

Don't forget to clap your hands!
Keep it up! We've gotta find him!

CAT TRACKS

Hey kids
Check it out
I'm gonna tell you what it's all about

You can scratch and claw
You can cry and wail
Your can try to be top dog and fail
But you don't have to live like that
You just learn to love your habitat

And make cat tracks, cat tracks, 
You make cat tracks, cat tracks,
Start trackin' and stop cattin' around

Hip cats, hep cats, fat cats too
Cool cats, jazz cats just like you
I've been all over this great big world
Just singin' my songs for the boys and girls
So find your true cat tale to tell
And sing your simple cat song well

And make cat tracks, cat tracks,
You make cat tracks, cat tracks, 
Are you trackin'?
Then stop cattin' around

(Interlude)

Stay on the scene
Like a music machine
Jump, jive and wail
Hot on the trail of those cat tracks
Stop cattin' around

(Interlude)

Keep your nose to the grindstone
Keep your eyes on the prize
Keep your finger on the pulse
And don't compromise
Get trackin' and stop cattin' around

(Interlude)

You better not cry
I'm tellin' you why
You better not pout
You better not frown
Start trackin' and quit cattin' around

And did I fail to mention
You'd better pay attention
'Cause you gotta be patient
To reach your destination
So keep trackin'
And stop cattin' around

SNOWCAT THEME

He's in the zone, he's on the go
He's underrated and he's in the know
He's out of sight, he's where it's at
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat

He's smooth as silk, he's cool as ice
He's like Fantasia without the mice
Like a Neiman's wardrobe at a Loehmann's price
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat

He's in effect and he's in excess
He's something special and he's nothing less
Than a super cat hero with an S on his chest
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat

He's out like Trane, he's in like Flynn
He's able like Gable in Gone With The Wind
He swings like Sinatra but without the Sin
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat

(Interlude)

He's got the stuff, he's got the goods
He's got more game than Tiger Woods
Or Barry Bonds when he swings that bat
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat

He's like Keith Jarrett but without the moans
He gets more groupies than the Rolling Stones
He wins more Grammys than Norah Jones
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat

He's fun for all, he's all for fun
He's first in line, he's second to none
He's like JB when he's on the one
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat

In cool cat school he makes the grades
In a game of cards he's the Ace of Spades
In the Arizona desert he don't need no shade, 'cause
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat

(Interlude)

He's cool like Prince jamming "Joint 2 Joint"
I could go on but really, what's the point
He's the bomb, he's the man, and hey
He's with the band, and
Nobody's cooler than....(he's the coolest!) SnowCat

CAT DANCE

Bailar es olvidar sus esperanzas y su temer
Si tú quieres baila con migo
Porque bailar es vivir

El GatoNieve
Él entiende
Porque la luna es su canción

El nieve gato
Él quiere al tango
Con las estrellas en su corazón

HUSH NOW

Hush now SnowCat
Time for counting sheep
Night is falling and shadows are deep

Close your eyes
Still your mind
All your cares will keep

Hush now
Hush now
Hush now and sleep

Close your eyes
Still your mind
All your cares will keep

Hush now
Hush now
Hush now and sleep

BOAT SONG

Come my friends, let's sleep no more
It's time to cross to the other shore
So climb aboard and don't delay
On this great big boat
Let's sail away

We'll have a ball as we float along
Watchin' the waves and singin' this song
There's room for all, let's go today
On this great big boat
Let's sail away

(Solos)

Come my friends, let's sleep no more
It's time to cross to the other shore
So climb aboard and don't delay
On this great big boat
Let's sail away

NOCTURNE (SAM'S DREAM)

It seems a dream
This setting sun
This fleeting world
A dream, it seems

Like a flash of lightning in a winter cloud
A bubble in a stream
Like a flickering star, or a shadow
A dream within a dream

ONE BRIGHT PEARL

(sing)

One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl

(chant)

As above, so below
Shining, telling all we need to know
Everywhere throughout the world
The universe is one bright pearl

Up above the world so high
Just like a diamond in the sky
And in the hearts of boys and girls
Everything is one bright pearl

(sing)

One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl

(solos)

(sing)

One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl

(chant)

As the rising moon appears
And casts it's light upon a pond
So this mind, serene and clear
Reflects the gentle song it hears, and it goes

(sing)

One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl

One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl
One bright pearl, one bright pearl

SERENITY

I went out alone searching for serenity
And now my search is through

Now that I am home
I have what I've been looking for
And so much more with you

(interlude)

I went out alone searching for serenity
And now my search is through

Now that I am home
I have what I've been looking for
And so much more with you

With you, with you, with you

SNOWCAT REPRISE

This is how our story ends
Just me and SnowCat playing with our friends
We're making music, imagine that
Nobody's cooler than SnowCat
