With a driving, percussive beat and an anti-couch potato theme, the Rock 'n' Rainbow band rock 'n rolls through songs that extol the joys of riding bikes and scooters and invites participation. In "The Freeze," lyrics instruct hands-up moves and periodic countdowns for freezes in place. The title song encourages listeners to "Turn off that video game/There's a new game in town, /No time to sit around/It's time to get down!" Other songs spurring physical action: "Hands Together, Hands Apart," "I Can't Fly" (But I can jump like a kangaroo…run like a zebra"), "Early Morning Knee-Slappin' Blues," and "Time Warp" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." One track, while recognizing the humor in a certain bodily function, explains the science, er, behind it; another is a slick run-down of "The Five Senses."
