    The Fisherman

    Now my daddy’s name is Beto, and he just loves to fish / You know what I mean, one of those men that the sea it’s just in their blood, old navy men / Well, my daddy would go out fishing you see / And when he’d return home / we’d all run outside to greet him to see what he had caught / 

    Now sometimes his catch was real big / and sometimes it was nothing at all / but we all knew Daddy was happier still / cuz fishing just gave him that special kind of thrill!

     

    Late in the night after fishing all day / next to the fire Beto rested and prayed / He saw the stars above and he wished for what he loved / closed his brown eyes and thanked his almighty God. (For fishing of course) / CHORUS / A fishing trip now and then / alone or even with friends / that’s what he loves so that’s what he does / takes fishing trips just because. / Early to rise and early to eat / He fried up some eggs, potatoes and meat / he poured coffee in his thermos / and hopped in swimming trunks / grabbed all his poles and was ready to go / on a fishing trip just because. / CHORUS / And if you listen closely / well he’ll mumble words of hope / Fishy, Fishy, Fishy / bite my hook / you can be the captain / and I’ll be the cook. / He fished over here and he fished over there / he fished all day long while he whistled his song / he had caught a pail of trout / then he watched them flop about / then came the time to reel in his lines / he’s a fisherman / there’s no doubt / Hey! / CHORUS / Oh, that’s what he loves / so that’s what he does / he’s a fisherman just because / that’s my daddy!

    Las Mañanitas

    Estas son las mañanitas / que cantaba el Rey David / hoy por ser día de tu santo / te las cantamos a ti / despierta mi bien, despierta / mira que ya amaneció / y los pajarillos cantan / la luna ya se metió / Que linda esta la mañana / en que vengo a saludarte / Venimos todos con gusto / y placer a felicitarte / El día en que tu naciste / nacieron todas las flores / Y en la pila del bautismo / cantaron los ruiseñores. / Ya viene amaneciendo / ya la luz del día nos vio / levántate de mañana / mira que ya amaneció.

NOTES
Corazon Alegre/Happy Heart is an ideal CD for parents who want to introduce their children to English and Spanish music. Tricia’s tunes will have you dancing, singing, and playing to a fusion of international rhythms.

Tricia Sebastian originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, performs and records bilingual children’s music in the Chicagoland area. Several songs from her first album, Canta Conmigo, have been featured in many children’s compilations CDs and the song “El Chocolate” was rerecorded in New York City for a national television commercial for Quaker’s Chocolate Oat Crunch Life Cereal. It was also aired on ABC’s hit sitcom Ugly Betty. The Chicago Tribune says, “Sebastian's playful, robust soprano could spark a Tex-Mex campfire.”

As an educator, Tricia directs the Coro de Las Americas children’s choir and the Latin Songs ensemble for the Old Town School of Folk Music where she has also taught bilingual Wiggleworms for many years. Since 2000, Tricia has enjoyed working in the Chicago public schools as a teaching artist for Ravinia Festivals Music Discovery outreach program.
