Wilory Records

"Celebrate the Difference hits all the sweet spots for parents and kids. Outstanding songwriting, musicianship, production values and enough inventive playfulness to include a "hip-hop banjo" and a "hard rock mandolin."

#2 Celebrate the Difference
Terri Hendrix
THE TOP 10 BEST Kid's CD's OF 2006!
WXPN Kids Corner

"Folk meets power chords. "Nerves" has become a Kids Corner classic, veering back and forth from "be nice" to "good thing you can't read my mind." Other highlights include "Get Your Goat On" and "Celebrate the Difference" which salutes the differences among all species."

"CELEBRATE THE DIFFERENCE" Terri Hendrix, a singer/songwriter from San Marcos, Texas, has released her first CD for kids and it is outstanding. It features clever, childlike songs coupled with hip, adult-friendly musical arrangements. Musically, it is all over the map, gliding smoothly between Texas swing and folk rock. It even features a wonderful hybrid of sorts with a funky banjo set to a techno beat in "Get Your Goat On."

Favorites with my students at school include " Celebrate the Difference ," which uses the animal kingdom as a great metaphor for looking at people and "First Place," which encourages kids to "Walk like you're in first place / Talk like you're in first place / Run like you'll win first place / on the track of the human race."

You won't find this recording alongside the Disney soundtracks at your local retail outlets, so go to her Web site, listen to some samples of the songs and buy the CD directly from her. You will feel good about supporting independent music and you will add a great recording to your children's musical library. And if you are like me, you will be impressed enough with her adult music to buy one of those CDs, too.

Track Name: Celebrate the Difference
Celebrate the Difference


A camel is a mammal
With a hump on its back

A duck has a bill
That goes quackity quack

You’ve gotta laugh

At the neck of the giraffe

And celebrate the difference

Pigs are big
Mice are tiny

Snails are slow
And fireflies are shiny

You’ve gotta smile
At the crocodile

And celebrate the difference

Celebrate the difference
When you take it all in

There’s more to meet the eye

Than the color of the skin

From the smell of the skunk

To an elephant’s trunk

Celebrate the difference

A tadpole turns into a frog

A puppy turns into a dog

A lion roars
An earthworm wiggles

A kitten purrs

And a hyena giggles

A rabbit’s ears
Go flippity flop

A pony’s hooves
Go clippity clop

Flippity flop
Clippity clop

Celebrate the difference

Celebrate the difference
When you take it all in

There’s more to meet the eye
Than the color of the skin

From the monkeys in the trees

To the bumble bees

Celebrate the difference

Celebrate the difference
When you take it all in

There’s more to meet the eye
Than the color of skin

Come big and small

Celebrate them all

Celebrate the difference

Track Name: First Place
First Place

You gotta walk like you’re in first place
Talk like you’re in first place
Run like you’re in first place
On the track of the human race

You gotta walk like you’re in first place
Talk like you’re in first place
Run like you’re in first place
On the track of the human race

It’s strange how much you can change
In one day
So take your doubt and kick it out
And in its place
Have a little bit of faith

You gotta walk like you’re in first place
Talk like you’re in first place
Run like you’re in first place
On the track of the human race

Sometimes you get the breaks
And sometimes you make
Nothing but mistakes
Sometimes there’s an open door
And sometimes there’s a wall
Where there wasn’t one before

You gotta walk like you’re in first place
Talk like you’re in first place
Run like you’re in first place
On the track of the human race
Yeah yeah

It’s hard to get out of bed
When you tried to win
But you lost instead
It’s hard to rise again
And get back on track
And know how to begin

You gotta walk like you’re in first place
Talk like you’re in first place
Run like you’re in first place
On the track of the human race

You gotta walk
You gotta talk
You gotta walk, talk, never look back
Never look back

You gotta walk like you mean it
Talk like you mean it
And never never look back
Never look back
Just run
Run, run keep on running
Don’t you look back
You’ve just gotta walk like you’re in first place
Talk like you’re in first place
Walk like you mean it
Talk like you mean it
Don’t you look back

— “First Place” (Terri Hendrix) from Celebrate the Difference
Track Name: I Want to be Your Friend
I Want to Be Your Friend

I’m new to the neighborhood
If you’d stop by and say hi
It would make me feel good
I miss my friends
I miss our old house, too
Now I’m all alone
With nothing fun to do

I’m looking around, looking around, looking around
I got my nose pressed up against the window pane
I’m wearing my brand new bathing suit
I was gonna go swimming
But it started to rain

All I know is I
I just want to be happy
All I know is I
I don’t want to be blue
All I know is I
I just want to be friends with you
I want to be friends with you

My parents keep telling me to give it time
But even the trees we planted are too small for me to climb
Our yard used to be grass and dirt
Now there’s a flower bed
But I’m still homesick and hurt
I’m looking around, looking around, looking around
I want you to stop by
So I can say hi
I’ve got my nose pressed up the window pane
I’m fogging up the glass
But I can still see the rain

You see I’m just a little bit shy
I don’t want to put my foot in my mouth
I talk a little funny I’m from way down south
I’m shy I’m new to the neighborhood
If you’d stop by and say hi
It would make me feel good
I’m looking around, looking around, looking around
If you come over today I won’t stare at the ground
To have a friend you’ve got to be one too
I’m gonna look you in the eye and say hello to you

— “I Want to Be Your Friend” (Terri Hendrix) from Celebrate the Difference
Track Name: Nerves
Nerves

Be nice
To your friends
That’s the way
That you make
New friends
Be nice
I hear you say
That’s the way
You need to be
To be nice

I heard you, and I’ll be kind
I’m glad you can’t read my mind
You’re getting on my nerves …

Ahhh let me tell you that
My room is my room
I’ll pick up my stuff, stuff
Under the bed under the rug
Out of site is up, up
I think that we-e-e-e both have had enough, ’nuff
These four walls do confine
I’m on yours
You’re on mine

Nerves!

Be nice
To your sister
Be nice to your brother, too
Makes you happy
When you’re nice
That’s the way you need to be
To be nice

I heard you, and I’ll be kind
But if you could read my mind
You’re getting on my nerves …

Ahhh let me tell you that
Joe just blew his nose
On each corner of his clothes
And baby Jane’s diaper’s fallin’
It was smelly
Now she’s ballin’
“Dinners ready, dinner’s ready, dinner’s ready”
I hear you callin’
These four walls do confine
I’m on yours
You’re on mine

Nerves!

Be nice
To your friends
That’s the way that you make new friends
Be nice
Learn to share
That’s the way you need to be to be nice

I heard you and I’ll be kind
But I’m glad you can’t read my mind
You’re getting on my nerves …

Ahhh let me tell you that
Last time I shared something of mine
It got broken
As for the friend that did it
Since then we have not spoken
“You should”
“You could”
“If I were you, I would …”
You’re not me
Can’t you see
If you could
You’d still be
On my nerves!

— “Nerves” (Terri Hendrix) from Celebrate the Difference
Track Name: Yeah Yeah Yeah
Give me back the ocean

While there’s fish in the sea

Give me back the land

While there’s still a single tree

Give me clean air

While I can still breathe

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Give me back the grass

Before it’s all concrete

I’ll take the stars

Over lamps that light the street

Save the ozone

Or feel the heat

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sounds simple

But no, no, no it’s not

If people in power

Wanna pick every flower

Gotta save our planet

It’s the only one we got

Give me back the mountains

And the valleys in between

I like to swim in rivers

That are nice and clean

I want a car that runs on trash
Not gasoline

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sounds simple

But no, no, no it’s not

If people in power

Wanna pick every flower

Gotta save our planet

It’s the only one we got

Give me back the sky

Before you block the view

Give me back the forests

And the wetlands too

People in power

Need to get a clue

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Everybody say, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sounds simple

But no, no, no it’s not

If people in power wanna
Pick every flower

Gotta save our planet
It’s the only one we got

Save our planet
It’s the only one we got

— “Yeah Yeah Yeah” (Terri Hendrix) from Celebrate the Difference
