LYRIC SHEET

Verse 1
The drops of rain, the drops of tears;
Both fall down my face.
Can’t stand that you’re not here.
All alone in a small café;
Knowin’ that my love has gone,
Knowin’ he won’t stay…

Chorus
As it rains in Central Park;
The sound of broken dreams,
The sound of broken hearts.
I watch the rain in Central Park
And try to figure out what tore us apart.

Verse 2
What happened to the man I thought I knew?
Was it something that I said? Tell me, what did I do?

Breakaway/Bridge
A lonely bird flies to the sky.
I hear your voice cry through the night,
I hear you now in broad daylight.
I watch the New York gloom and long for you.
The biggest thing I miss is your sweet kiss.

CHORUS x 2

I hear the rain…

WAITING FOR SANTA
Words and Music by
Jeff Funk

This Christmas Eve
We’re gonna spy.
We’ll see Santa
With our own eyes.

We’ll creep down the stairs,
Hide by the tree.
Eyes on the fireplace,
Waiting quietly.

We’re waiting for Santa,
Santa come down the chimney
Bring us some toys!
We’re watching for reindeer
And Rudolph.
Christmas is coming;
We’ll stay up late.
We’re waiting for Santa.

Cookies and milk:
We made a bunch
So there’s plenty
Santa can munch.

We just heard a sound
Up on the roof.
It could be nothing…
Or a reindeer hoof!

CHORUS

Santa will come
And we’ll hear him laugh,
Chuckling, “Ho! Ho! Ho!”
Ringing sleigh bells as elves go to work;
Leaving toys for girls and boys, heigh-ho!

We’re waiting for Santa,
Santa come down the chimney
Bring us some toys!
We’re watching for reindeer
And Rudolph.
Christmas is coming;
We’ll stay up late.
We’re waiting for Santa.
Hoo.

ONE SMILE
Words and Music by
Jeffrey Eric Funk

Just one smile is all it takes to make
One more smile on one more face.
Then that smile is bound to cause another
Shining face like no other.

Spread cheer to those around you ‘coz
Just one frown can get you down.
When gray clouds are blocking out the Sunshine, just you wait;
You’ll see blue skies.

When you walk down the street,
Smile at people you meet.
Sometimes just one smile is all it takes to
Make one more smile on one more face.
Good times head your way
When you start your day with just one smile.

Just one smile can change your mood
When you’re lost in thought or feeling blue.
Take time out to spend some time together
With close friends; you’ll feel better.

One smile to pass along ‘coz you
Never know, it might catch on.
We might have a cause for celebration,
Spreading joy ‘cross the nation.

When you walk down the street,
Smile at people you meet.
Sometimes just one smile is all it takes to
Make one more smile on one more face.
Good times head your way
When you start your day with just one smile.

One smile!
