The Dress Up Song is a song that first appeared in JumpStart Preschool: Who Left the Juice in the Caboose?. It was also used in JumpStart ABC's.
In JumpStart Preschool: Who Left the Juice in the Caboose?, the song plays when Eleanor is trying to find an outfit to wear to Casey's pretend pizza parlor, and it plays a second time when she explains to Casey why she is dressed as a pirate. In JumpStart ABC's, a sing-along video for the song can be played at the Bandstand.
I tried to be a ballerina
But the slippers were too small.
I tried to be a police officer,
But I needed to be more tall.
I tried to be a cowgirl, with a fancy rope.
But without the shiny star, I had to just say nope!
I tried to be a movie star, as famous as could be,
But I when I wore the glasses, I simply could not see.
The firefighter's hat made me very hot.
The doctor's white outfit had a great big purple spot.
I tried to dress like Daddy
But the necktie was too tight.
But now that I'm a pirate
Yo ho ho ho ho
The outfit is just right!
