  • Lyrics
  • This is a track from The Merry Goes Round, Jewel's second collection of children's songs. The album was partly inspired by the singer's newborn son, Kase Townes Murray, who was born on July 11, 2011. "I want the album to be fun for kids and adults, whether they have kids or not. I looked at it as a chance to write songs for my baby boy, that he can dance around to when he arrives," Jewel said.
  • "I actually used a Beatles song, 'Rocky Raccoon,' as a template, because I think it's a song adults love and kids love. I want this to be an album that if you're an adult, you're gonna enjoy this record too," Jewel revealed to The Boot. "It's nothing radio ready; it's a fun, whimsical, kind of silly album that hopefully turns a phrase and is well-crafted."
