Amassing near gold record sales as a totally independent artist, his appeal is very simple: Barry writes great songs. Rich with environmental themes, his music is profound and energetic.

Warm, wise and funny, Barry Peters is an artist worth introducing to every child.

Track Name: Underwater Sea Creatures
Under Water Sea Creatures

Underwater sea creatures
Are the colour of the rainbow
Yellow, violet, red and blue
Dissolving as the water flows

With a long nose nosing out
And the cutest curling tail
Seahorses are the weirdest crites
All crumbly and frail

With nasty, naughty, nippers
But the nicest, little black eyes
Crabs do a super, side on stride
All neat and organised

With a grin that goes down to their guts
And their pencil case zipper talk
Dolphins are so friendly
They get on their tails and walk
Track Name: Come Over & See Me Sometime
Come Over & See Me Sometime

Come over and see me sometime
Come over – oh – not that far
Come over and see me sometime
Driving in mum’s car

Going home from school and the sun is shining
Up ahead is a real big bend
As we go around - I really like it
I really like it cause you’re my friend

Sometimes holidays can be a drag
Staring out the window it never ends
But when we take a corner I really like it
I really like it cause you’re my friend

Take a silly sideways
Lean a little, loose your grip
Take a silly sideways
Lean a little, abandon ship
Take a silly sideways ………
Track Name: Call Of The Willy Willy
Call Of the Willy Willy

By the road when you think it’s quiet
Up jumps a wind in a little riot
Spinning, silly, spinning, silly
This is what they call a Willy Willy

Starts down low like a sight-seeing snake
Drags it all in like a garden rake
Dust, debris – whirling round
Dragging both your feet from off-a the ground
Curling, twirling - into the sky
All of a sudden – a Willy Willy dies.
Track Name: Every Little Bubble
Every Little Bubble
Dip in water, soap in hand, rub a little – understand
Make a circle - finger thumb, this is how the bubble comes
Blow a little – gently goes, this is how the bubble grows
Can you see the colours in the skin …

Every little bubble hides a rainbow, every little bubble’s born to fly
Every little bubble hides a rainbow, can you catch a colour could you try.
Track Name: A Seal Holiday
A Seal Holiday

Let me take you on a seal holiday
We won’t go far – just to Bridgewater Bay
The water’s calm and the place ideal
We’ll go looking, looking for seals

Seals play - they zoom and zip
Off the rocks with a flap and a flip
Seals “arf” and share a kiss
The life of a seal is total bliss

Let me take you on a seal holiday
A big volcano made Bridgewater Bay
There’s a deep ocean cave in the crater rim
Where the seals all rest when they’ve had a swim
Seals swim and surf and bob
Catching fish is a skilful job
Seals were hunted and most were killed
Now they’re protected and the rocks are filled

Let me take you on a seal holiday
The seals are friendly – they’ll come and say gidday
Don’t get the boat too close, don’t give ‘em a feed
The ocean provides everything they need
Seals stink – they really do
They have bad breath and smelly poo
Never mind, don’t let it get to you
Because a seals gotta do what a seals gotta do
Track Name: Papa Murray & His Putt Putt Boat
Pappa Murray & His Putt Putt Boat

Pappa Murray in his putt putt boat
He likes to fish and he likes to float
Pappa Murray on his wooden seat (with his gum boot feet)
Putt, putt, putt to the fishing boat beat

Pappa Murray in the swell and the tide
The boat gently rocks him from side to side
Down the river and out to sea
Pappa Murray would you please take me

Pappa Murray doesn’t mind the time
With his rod and his reel and his old green line
With the waves and with the whales
If the putt, putt stops he’ll hoist his sails

His boat heads home in the sun setting glow
Mutton birds dive deep into their burrows
Pappa smiles and he pats his boat
For he likes to fish and he likes to float.
Track Name: See The Brolgas Dance
See The Brolgas Dance

We don’t know if you’ve heard
There’s a dance done by a graceful bird
To build up trust before all things
It courts the other with the widest wings

See the brolgas dance
See the brolgas dance
See the way each move it speaks
See the brolgas dance
See the brolgas dance
It’s a lifetime friend they seek

With your children look and learn
Watch the broglas touch and turn
Partner, family, every nation
Friendship linking all creation
Track Name: Come Come Whaley Whaley
Come Come Whaley Whaley

Come Come Whaley Whaley
Welcome Welcome - Pombar

We see the people waiting
Hear the men they’re singing
Now it’s time to choose
For this song we can’t refuse

As their songs they reach
They call us come and beach
Now it’s time to choose
For this song we can’t refuse

Will we send just any whale. Oh no!
Will we send the one that’s frail. Oh no!
Why not send the fattest
Why not send the fattest
Why not send the fattest male

We are proud to see you go
We are sad to say goodbye
Now it’s time to choose
For this song we can’t refuse
Track Name: A Little Birdie Told Me
Little Birdie Told Me

A little birdie told me
As he was passing bye
A little birdie told me, he wouldn’t tell a lie
Moving through the forest
From tree to tree he goes
That little birdie knows

Hey, what’s that you say my little one
Them seeds are very good
Come quickly with your family
We really think you should

Hey why you chirping over there
Is there an old snake in that grass
Get your friends and catch him
For he’s where your children pass

Hey where you gone my feathered friend
Is that bushfire way too near
It’s time to move to safety
Come on – let’s get out of here
Hey we like your pretty song
You say our friends are on the way
They’re walking through the forest
Can you hear their children play
Track Name: Caring For The Coast
Caring For The Coast

There’s lots of little sea creatures we can know
Caring for the coast will help them grow
Caring for the coast – it’s such a pleasure
It’s loaded with life and lots of tiny treasures

Watch a small sea star lift a brittle limb
You prefer to walk where others chose to swim
But your best trick by far is hidden out of sight
You drop your stomach out your mouth – a funny type of bite!

You’re so delicate, delightful with your camouflage wagging
A cousin of a seahorse – a leafy sea dragon
Tiny, exquisite, a Southern Ocean jewel
Mimicking the plants in the warm rock pools

Sophisticated sea weed crabs gather round
By your hungry predators you can’t be found
Snipping bits of seaweed that you glue on your shell
A crab or a weed – I just can’t tell
Track Name: Wallaby Tooth
I’ve Got A Wallaby Tooth

It doesn’t hurt, it isn’t sore
I’ve never had one of these before
It isn’t angry, it doesn’t ouch
I don’t think it’s got a furry pouch
I’ve got a Wallaby, Wobbly
Wallaby, Wobbly
I’ve got a Wobbly Tooth

It doesn’t hurt, it isn’t sore
I don’t think it’s got two small front paws
It isn’t angry, It doesn’t ache
My gums have got a new tooth to make
Track Name: Lucky I'm A Droptail
Lucky I’m A Droptail

It really is an awful drag
To have a body like a bag
That cannot dart or dash or run
Unless I first sit in the sun

Sitting in the sun is hard
There’s cats and dogs in this yard
Each one wants me in their gizzard
It’s lucky I’m a drop tail lizard

I’m not a dog that has three legs
Or a shell without it’s snail
I might be shorter but it’s no harm
It’s lucky I’m a drop tail

There’s children here with nasty jars
Why don’t they play with matchbox cars
They creep up with their fingers out
“Gotcha’s” what they all shriek and shout

It’s then I pull the safety switch
I drop my tail to tweak and twitch
A trick as good as any wizard
It’s lucky I’m a drop tail lizard
Track Name: Weedy Seadragon
Weedy Seadragon

Rainbow reds in autumn cloth
Rainbow jewellery that you wear
Your beauty is a special gift
Making us all aware

Weedy Seadragon
Moored in your rhythmic motion
Weedy Seadragon
Pride of a powerful ocean
Weedy Seadragon
The water’s cold but you light a fire
Weedy Seadragon
You do inspire

Seaweeds strips and drifting floats
Seaweed home of blue green light
Clear water and a healthy sea
You can help us all unite
Track Name: When I Wear This Hat
When I Wear This Hat

When I wear this hat
It makes me want to dance
I close my eyes when I get my chance
When I wear this hat
It makes me feel like I want to dance

You can dance and I’ll play guitar
You can lift your arms and jump up far
What a great way to be a star

You’d like a turn, well here’s your break
We’re going to follow every move you make
What you wriggle – we might just shake

Can you twist yourself into a spin
You can go round once and then again
Soon you’re back – back where you began
