Magnetic, magnetic North Use me to find your way Magnetic, magnetic North If you’re lost, I’ll save the day Now you've got your computers and your GPS But don’t forget what’s still the best You don't need electricity or radiation Just a compass pointing to your destination Magnetic, magnetic North Use me to find your way Magnetic, magnetic North If you’re lost, I’ll save the day The compass points ‘cuz of the earth's iron core That's a magnet too if you're keepin' score But magnetic north is not the north pole So don't come to me if Santa left you coal! Magnetic, magnetic North Use me to find your way Magnetic, magnetic North If you’re lost, I’ll save the day Let me lead you to places that you’ll want to go What you’ll find, you never know I might take you to Greenland or the Ukraine But wherever you are your compass says the same Magnetic, magnetic North Use me to find your way Magnetic, magnetic North If you’re lost, I’ll save the day Magnetic, magnetic North Use me to find your way Magnetic, magnetic North If you’re lost, I’ll save the day

I may be cold and old and moving slow I may be white and thick and got a ways to go If you walk on me you might find fleas Or polar bears and seals or arctic seas And when I left, I carved the mountains And when I left, I carved the hills And when I left, I carved the valleys I left the rocks and clay, it lies there still I left the rocks and clay, they call it till I may be below zero celsius I may be below 32 fahrenheit I covered this whole valley, I covered Canada My ice was everywhere sparkling white And when I left, I carved the mountains And when I left, I carved the hills And when I left, I carved the valleys I left the rocks and clay, it lies there still I left the rocks and clay, they call it till I’m a glacier baby, keep me around for you I keep the world cool so just say thank you Don’t count me out don’t let me get melted down I keep the world cool, you need me around I keep the world cool, you need me around I keep the world cool, you need me around

My name is mother earth I'm 4.54 Billion years old I've had something to say Every second of every minute of every day Of every week of every month of every year For each of those 4.54 billion years    7.83 hertz From the land and the sea 7.83 hertz A gift to you from me   7.83 is the frequency Otto Schuman discovered Back in 1954 Germany My sweet vibration was uncovered 7.83 is a way to describe The invisible wave that I provide Which makes you feel at home Wherever on me that you might roam 7.83 hertz From the land and the sea 7.83 hertz A gift to you from me   But somethings been happening kinda strange Everyone used to enjoy my wave range But with all the new waves you're making My message is stirred, broken, and shaken   7.83 hertz From the land and the sea 7.83 hertz A gift to you from me   You love my trees, love my leaves You love my sky, you don't know why You love my showers, you love my flowers You love my hawks, love my walks   But what you love most of all You can't see at all Deep inside your brain Your wave is the same as mine Your wave was born from mine When were together you feel fine But what you love most of all You can't see at all Deep inside your brain Your wave is the same as mine Your wave was born from mine When were together you feel fine Your wave is the same as mine You wave was born from mine When were together you feel fine Your wave is the same as mine

about

Greatest Bits, Volume 1 is a selection of songs from Piti Theatre's first three years of collaboration with Northampton singer-songwriter Carrie Ferguson (2012 - 2015). The songs are from Piti Theatre international touring productions "To Bee or Not to Bee" and "Innocenzo" as well as from our "mini-musicals" created for elementary school musical theater residencies like "Grandpa Magnet", "The Time Capsule", "This is Your Rock" and "Olde Coleraine".
The album was made possible by a grant from Club Passim's Iguana Fund.
