about

Description (by Ted): This is really JoAnn's delightful thing to describe, but I guess I'll try my best. I believe JoAnn had a "Chatty Cathy" when she was younger--a doll where a child had to pull a cord behind her back and then she says something fascinating. I've seen a Twilight Zone episode that probably mocked the idea, and there's no doubt it inspired my musical half of our song. As you'll find out, this particular child has an exciting adventure where she talks to her doll as she plays hide-and-seek. Interestingly enough, I don't think anybody ever does find her.

lyrics

Mommy said to go outside
And find some friends to play with
While I can
Summer won’t last for long you see
Fresh air and sunshine is good for me!

<cord sound> “Please take me with you”
(spoken) “Of course I will!”

You and me Cathy, and all the kids here
Playing hide and seek till we get the all clear

>sfx< “Where are we going?”

I know the perfect place to hide –in here!
We’ll get inside this box and disappear!
While Tommy hides his eyes, he’ll never know we’re
Inside this place!
I’m the best hider in hide and seek
I bet they won’t find us if they look all week!
But we’ll be here, Cathy, waiting cheek to cheek
Until somebody opens
The fridgerator door…

<sfx> What can we do now?
I don’t know
<sfx> where are we going?
I don’t know!
<sfx> I’m so tired
I am too, I hope they find us soon…
>sfx<Tell me a story
Don’t worry Cathy
>sfx< I love you
Mommy will find us
>sfx< I’m so tired!
I am too, I hope they find us soon…

I know the perfect place to hide –in here!
We’ll get inside this box and disappear!
While Tommy hides his eyes, he’ll never know we’re
Inside this place!
I’m the best hider in hide and seek
I bet they won’t find us if they look all week!
But we’ll be here, Cathy, waiting cheek to cheek
Until somebody opens
The fridgerator door…
