The Moppet Songs were written in the summer of '98.  The texts are taken from The Cat Walked Through the 

Casserole, a book of children's poems by Pamela Espeland and Marilyn Nelson.  I've always thought the poems

were fun, and enjoyed working on the songs.  Nose Pickers is a brief exploration of a pastime we all share.  Thomas

 Has a Girlfriend is a rather sweet,  sentimental number.  If I Could Do Whatever I Wanted brings back memories of 

childhood fancies, all fun, but some not very nice!
