about

Four years in the making, the new Sugar Free Allstars album is their most ambitious to date, with nods to the funk, rock and R&B sounds of the 1970s and ‘80s that greatly influenced them. Elements of Parliament Funkadelic, early ‘80s Prince, old-school rap, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem, Dixieland, New Orleans Second Line and even some barbershop quartet can be heard in the tunes that make up their fourth family oriented release. The deliciously eclectic self-titled album is a reintroduction of their family funk super duo style complete with new logo and branding. Special guest artists helping out on the album are Genevieve Goings (Choo Choo Soul) on vocals, Roger Manning Jr (member of Beck’s band since 1995 and founding member of Jellyfish and Moog Cookbook) on keyboards and Fred Tackett (recorded/toured with Bob Dylan and current member of Little Feat) on electric guitar.

Track Name: Monster Truck
CHORUS
Monster Truck, Monster Truck
M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M
Monster Truck, Monster Truck
M-M-M-M-M-M-M-M
Monster Truck

Oh yeah! Well come on!

Bright lights and a sold out crowd
It's hard to hear 'cause they're screamin' so loud
The air is electric, it may, overload
They call my name and pyrotechnics explode

Well drop the gear shift into low
We’ll punch the gas and it's time to go

CHORUS

All right now
Well can you listen?

Tearin' around the arena floor
We’re kicking up dirt like never seen before
Spinning tires that are six feet tall
Are rollin' over cars and crushing them all

Well unto you I make this pledge
You’ll get the whole seat but only need the edge

CHORUS

I love you

Well I know when you think about a monster truck, the first thing that comes to mind is a big, mean, aggressive vehicle that smashes stuff
Well let me tell you something about monster trucks, you may not know….

Bridge
Well even monster trucks have a soft side (yes they do)
They like to listen to some Air Supply (yacht rock)
Strawberry pancakes for their breakfast (with whipped cream)
And when they watch sad movies, sometimes they start to cry (Beaches)


But the telephone rings and then
It’s back to work again.....

All right monster truckers, it’s time to put on our helmets
Now put the key in the ignition, and start your engines
Let’s all gaze out across the arena, at the ramp, in the middle
On the other side of that ramp, are forty buses
Why?
‘Cause we’re gonna try to jump over those forty buses
Do you think we can make it??
Well there’s only one way to find out
Put your hands on the wheel
Rev the motor one more time
And here we go!

Whoa we’re picking up speed
We’re over halfway to the ramp
We’re on the ramp
Now we’re in the air…

Whoa, we just made it over twenty buses
We just made it over thirty buses
Are we gonna make it over all forty of these buses??
Are we gonna make it???

Nope

CRASH SMASH SMASH CRASH
Hold on everybody, we’re riding this truck like a wild bronco
SMASH CRASH
(is that a Hyundai? How did that get in here?)

1, 2, 3!

CHORUS 2X

Monster Truck yeah
Oh Monster Truck
Monster Truck, yeaaaahhhh
(for those about to Monster Truck, we salute you)
FIRE!!!
Track Name: Grumpopotamus (and the Crankosaurus Rex)
Rrrrr

RRRROOOOOOARRRR!!!

CHORUS
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Crankosaurus Rex

I got a little brother & sister y'all
'Bout as sweet as they can be
They spread joy and sunshine
Upon everything they see
But if they're feelin' worn out and sleepy
It’s best not be around
And I just heard they didn’t take a nap today
Whoa, what’s that sound?

RRRROOOOOOARRRR!!!

CHORUS
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..Uh Oh!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..Here they come!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..Best get out the way!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Crankosaurus Rex

You know my best friend and I
We have a real fun time planned for today
We’re going to the zoo to see the animals
Then over to the park to play
But the sky starts to fill with dark stormy clouds
As we’re on our way in the mini van
Thunder crashes and rain starts to fall
Looks like the weather just ruined our plans!

RRRROOOOOOARRRR!!!
CHORUS
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..Uh Oh!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..Here they come!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..Best get out the way!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Crankosaurus….

Bridge
Rex and the Grumpopotamus approaching us side by side
So sound the warning best beware it’s time to go run and hide
They’re growlin’, howlin’, wavin’ arms and stompin’ upon the ground
Inciting chaos, causing devastation all around

RRRROOOOOOARRRR!!!

You know my mom and dad y'all
They love me so very much
They tell me about it every single day
As they're huggin’ me and kissin’ me and such
But if it's really early in the mornin’
They need a little time before they're awake
Uh oh, looks like we're out of coffee
Feel the whole house shake!!

RRRROOOOOOARRRR!!!

CHORUS
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..Here they come!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..Best get out the way!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Rex…..They look mad!
Here comes Grumpopotamus
And the Crankosaurus Crankosaurus Crankosaurus Crankosaurus Rex

RRRROOOOOOARRRR!!
Track Name: I Can See It Now
I’m gonna sit down and draw a picture
That's just what I'm gonna do
So I'm getting out all of my crayons
Red, green, orange, yellow and blue
I'm gonna start with some circles and scribbles
I’ll finish with some squiggly lines
Then I’ll check out my creation with a smile on my face
And give it to my daddy feeling oh so fine

And he said.....

“Well that’s really great, I mean, you know
I can see some lines and uh shapes and uh
Hmmmmm”

“It’s our house”

“Ohhhhhh”

Then he said….

CHORUS
Well I can see it now, it's oh so clear
I love it so much I'm gonna put it right here so
Everybody that comes over can see
The very special picture, you did just for me
All that I can say is WOW
I can see it now

You know I get my inspiration
From the things that I see and I hear
The people and the places and the things all around me
That I hold so dear
So I'm gettin' out my fingerpaints and going to town
Let my, creative juices flow
Swirling colors all around to form a new masterpiece
And show it to my momma feeling so proud you know

And she said.....

“Oh sweetheart, that’s just gorgeous I see colors and
Orange and yellow and...
Hmmmmm”

“It’s a giraffe"
“Ohhhhhh”

Then she said...

CHORUS
Well I can see it now, it's oh so clear
I love it so much I'm gonna put it right here so
Everybody that comes over can see
The very special picture, you did just for me
All that I can say is WOW
I can see it now

One more time!

Well I can see it now, it's oh so clear
I love it so much I'm gonna put it right here so
Everybody that comes over can see
The very special picture, you did just for me
All that I can say is WOW
All that I can say is WOW
All that I can say is WOW
I can see it now
Track Name: Can You Picture That?
Ohhh yeah! Whooo! All Right!

Everybody's lover, everybody's brother, I wanna be your lifetime friend.
Crazy as a rocket, nothin in my pocket, I keep it at the rainbow's end.
I never think of money, I think of milk 'n honey, grinnin like a cheshire cat.
I focus on the pleasure, somethin' I can treasure
Can you picture that?
Can you picture that?

Ohhh yeah! Hey, Dr Rock, take a verse!

Let me take your picture, add it to the mixture, there it is I got you now!
Really nothin' to it, anyone can do it, it's easy and we all know how.
Now begins the changin', mental rearrangin', nothing's really where it’s at,
Now the Eiffel Tower's holdin up a flower. I gave it to a Texas cat

Fact is there's nothin out there you can't do
Yeah, even Santa Claus believes in you.
Beat down the walls, begin, believe, behold, begat.
Be a better drummer, be an up and comer.
Can you picture that?
Can you picture that??!!

All of us are winnin, pickin and a-grinnin, Lordy but I love to jam
Jelly-belly gigglin, dancin and a-wigglin, honey that's the way I am!
Lost my heart in Texas, Northern lights affect us, I keep it underneath my hat,
Aurora Borealis, shinin down on Dallas!
Can you picture that?
Can you picture that?

Can you picture?
You gotta see it in your mind!
Can you picture?
You know it's quick and easy to find!
Can you picture?
You don't have to buy a frame!
Can you picture?
Can you picture that?
Can you picture that?

Use it if you need it
Don't forget to feed it!
Can you picture that?

Can you get behind it? For surely…
Track Name: Upside Down Town
If you're feeling kind of low, there's a place you can go, it's called
Upside Down Town
It may seem a little strange, but if you need a change there is
Upside Down Town

Everything's different although it's the same
Topsy and turvy, a slight rearrange
Another perspective, a new point of view
It can be so good for you

It's not very far away, we can get there today, it's called
Upside Down Town
We don't need to take a car, just stay right where you are, to get to
Upside Down Town

You may be confused by the words that I say
How do we get there, what is the way
I tell you my friend it's as easy as pie
So come along and you'll see why

Attention ladies and gentleman we are now departing for upside down town
All passengers please proceed to place the top of your head on the ground
Using your arms for balance kick your legs in the air and hold them high
Congratulations ladies and gentleman, we have now arrived

Welcome to upside down town
Come on in and have a look around
If you cast your gaze upward you will see the ground
And everywhere trees are growing straight down
Now look below at beautiful blue skies
Flocks of birds flying by
Things are a bit different here you will find
W’s look like M’s and sixes like nines
But alas our time has come to an end
Come back soon and see us again

Now that you've been there I'm sure you'll agree
It's so interesting you won't want to leave
But you'll get a headache from staying too long
So keep your visit brief and move on

Upside Down Town (4x)
Track Name: If I Didn't Have You
I don't have a boat
But I've got a sail
I don't have a hammer
But I've got a nail
You know that one without the other, doesn't work quite as well it's true
A bit like me, if I didn't have you
Just a bit like me, if I didn’t have you

I don't have a train
But I've got some some tracks
I don't have any groceries y’all
But I've got a sack
You know that one and one all by themselves, would never add up to two
A bit like me, if I didn't have you
Just a bit like me, if I didn’t have you

Well if I didn't have you in my life, well I would still be okay
But things are so much better, when we are together every day
Well a lock without a key, or a sock without a shoe
Is a bit like me, if I didn't have you
Just a bit like me, if I didn’t have you

Well if I didn't have you in my life, well I would still be okay
But things are so much better, when we are together every day
Well a lock without a key, or a sock without a shoe
Is a bit like me, if I didn't have you
Just a bit like me, if I didn’t have you
A whole lot like me, if I didn’t have you
Track Name: Mr DJ
CHORUS
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long

Stand up, turn around
Jump up high now touch the ground
Stand up, turn around
Jump up high now touch the ground

I've got to stay awake, no matter what it takes
I've got to stay awake, no matter what it takes

Slide left shuffle right
Shake and shimmy through the night
Slide left shuffle right
Shake and shimmy through the night

There's too much going on, stayin' up until the dawn
There's too much going on, stayin' up until the dawn

Whew,
All this, movin’ around is getting me, worn out
I’m gonna need to.. sit down here and, catch my breath
Maybe I’ll just.. lean my head back and…just..close my...eyes...
WAIT A MINUTE

CHORUS
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long

Run up and down the hall
Keep on bouncin' off the walls
Run up and down the hall
Keep on bouncin' off the walls

I'm ninja quick tonight, so fast I'm outta sight
I'm ninja quick tonight, so fast I'm outta sight

Roll around upon the floor
Play a rhythm on the door
Roll around upon the floor
Play a rhythm on the door

It's really not that late, And I'm still feeling great
It's really not that late, And I'm still feeling great

Whew,
My heart is beating really fast from all this.. running and jumping
I'm gonna need to, sit on my bed and, just rest for a bit
Maybe I’ll just, go ahead and, lie down and I can...zzzzzz
WAIT A MINUTE!

CHORUS
Hey Mr DJ they're gettin' out my PJs and trying to find a sleepy time song
So can you play me somethin’ groovin’ to keep my body movin’ or I won't be awake for too long

Track Name: One Verse Song
I'm gonna write a song
That's only got one verse
I'm gonna keep it simple
So we don't have to rehearse
It's only got eight lines
That you have to traverse
So won't you sing along with my little song
That's only got one verse

Uhhhh, is that it?
Well yeah
Seems kind of short
Well, I mean, the song’s only got one verse
But in the last line you asked everyone to sing along
Oh yeah, I guess we should probably do it again huh?
Yeah probably so

Second verse, same as the first

I'm gonna write a song
That's only got one verse
I'm gonna keep it simple
So we don't have to rehearse
It's only got eight lines
That you have to traverse
So won't you sing along with my little song
That's only got one verse
So won't you sing along with my little song
That's only got one verse
Come on and sing along with my little song
That's only got one verse
Track Name: Breakdancin'
Well let me take you back to the 1980s, a very long time ago
Where believe it or not you know MTV played, music videos
There were jelly shoes, parachute pants and cassette tapes don't you know
And people walkin' around with great big boom boxes, everywhere they'd go

And don’t you know that we were

CHORUS
Breakdancin', Breakdancin’
Everybody was Breakdancin', Breakdancin’

Uh huh huh, uh huh huh

Well I must have been about 11 years old and I thought I would give it a try
So I went on down to the community center with a, twinkle in my eye
I looked over a list of the classes, they offered, and found what I was looking for
Then I went on down to room 209 and when I walked through that door, don’t you know that they were

CHORUS

Mr DJ

Break it down to the beat box

Break dance robots, please report to the dance floor

Do the moonwalk do the moonwalk
Slide you feet j-j-just like this

Now the wave now the wave
Wave your arms wavey wavey

And the caterpillar caterpillar
Watch your back or the worm

Backspin can you backspin
Spin it all around round and around

What about the windmill about the windmill
Now hold on well, hold on

Can you headspin, headspin, can you headspin, headspin can you spin…..
Wait…….hold on...I gotta…...th….I…..wait wait wait
Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait!!!


Okay, full disclosure y’all
I only completed breakdance level one and the head spin and the windmill that was level two so…..
I, can’t do those…..

Back to the beat y’all

Well the years have passed and I'm full grown man all set in my ways and such
And I gotta admit, on the current trends I'm just a, little out of touch
But just the other day I was watching television and much to my surprise
There was a little kid, about 7 years old and right before my eyes

Don’t you know that he was

CHORUS
Breakdancin', Breakdancin’
You know, he was Breakdancin', Breakdancin’
It’s comin’ back around again Breakdancin', Breakdancin’
Uh huh, Breakdancin', Breakdancin’

Everybody all together

Hotel
Motel
Ha ha Holiday Inn

CHORUS
Breakdancin', Breakdancin’
Everybody was Breakdancin', Breakdancin’
It’s comin’ back around again Breakdancin', Breakdancin’
Uh huh, Breakdancin', Breakdancin’
Track Name: My Dog Pete

My dog Pete

Every afternoon we go out walking in the park
I tell all my stories but all he does is bark

Ruff Ruff

Track Name: BunnyBot
I got robots on my pants and I got robots on my shirt
And when I go outside I play with robots in the dirt
I got lots of robot posters hanging, all over my walls
It's safe to say that robots are my favorite thing of all

But you know my little sister, she sees things differently
She likes puppy dogs, and kitty cats, that are soft and cuddly
But when we play together, we have found a compromise
Something that, to both of us, is wondrous in our eyes.....

CHORUS
BunnyBot
HOP HOP!
BunnyBot
HOP HOP!
BunnyBot
HOP HOP!
BunnyBot….

He's got two radar antennae side by side atop his head
You probably will not see them they look like, rabbit ears instead
He can hop around from place to place, at supersonic speeds
And his big blue bunny eyes, they can shoot out laser beams

But you know my little sister, she doesn't care about these things
She likes to hold and pet him, and rock him while she sings
But even though our reasons, they may not be the same
We both get so excited, when we hear the name....

CHORUS

It’s such a nice day BunnyBot, let’s see if we can find a place to sit
Oooo, that’s a nice spot under that tree over there
Let’s go over there and sit down
You’re such a sweet little BunnyBot, pet pet, hoppity hop hop
Oooo, what is that over there BunnyBot?

Attention people of Earth, I am Mopac from the planet Zimzar

Oh my…

We have come to take control of your planet
Resistance is futile, surrender, and be not harmed

Protect us BunnyBot!!

Well that’s just a little bunny, what can HE do to stop us??

BunnyBot!

Zimarians, attack!!!

Go BunnyBot Go!!

Ow, get out of the way, get that, get that bunny out of the way
Stop, oh, ow, hey, get off my head, get off my head
Get, stop that, oh, get that bunny, get that bunny!
What?? Laser Beams?? You’ve GOT to be kidding me!!
Ow!! Ow!! Zimzarians, run away, run awaaaaaayy!

Well it looks like Bunnybot has gone and saved the day again
It seems to be no big deal, just, another normal day to him
He keeps the world protected you know that everyone agrees
And our very favorite times are when, it's Bunnybot, my sis, and me

BunnyBot
HOP HOP!
BunnyBot
HOP HOP!

HOP HOP!
