"Off to the Races" from The Tale of Chicken Licken
"Off to the Races" is sung by the Duck family who are exercise enthusiasts always preparing for the next big race -- getting down to lake each morning BEFORE the Geese family. Both the Sheet Music and the mp3 Accompaniment Recording are available from SMP Press.
About the Song - One of the mothers from my recent Summer Theater Camp told me this story. Her darling daughter was one of the baby chicks in the play. She shared: Our daughter LOVES this song. She was trying to sing it and couldn't say "biathlon, triathlon" so I kept telling her how to say them. Finally she sighed and said, "Mom, I just can't remember the names of those dinosaurs..." Clearly, it is important to explain the unusual and unfamiliar words to these cute little people!
