Just past midnight, while I sleep
A song drifts through my mind
As the moonlight bathes the sea
I hear a lullaby
Such sweetly blending beauty
Hear the angels sing

And I woke softly, pausing then
To hear the music of my dreams
Gentle harps and whistling flutes
Play on and on in my dreams

While the night wind cools my room
I search my memory
And hear a phantom serenade
Of haunting melody
Just listen, join me as we
Journey to the dawn

And I woke softly, pausing then
To hear the music of my dreams
Gentle harps and whistling flutes
Play on and on in my dreams

I dream of sun-bright ocean skies
And I hear mighty waves
Whispering their evening song
Proud music of the storm

Music, the music of my dreams
Only, I can hear it
Calling me, guiding me home
And I will always hear the song
Play on and on in my dreams
Play on and on in my dreams

(SATB, accompanied with parts for rhythm section)

The Jazz Age is the rage. And now swing sheet music is a click away! —JF

Well you know that dude who was really smart—
He came from France and his name was Descartes
He sat and thought like no other man and said,
“I think, therefore I am.”
Did you know that Descartes had a brother
Who play jazz like no other? He said,
“I swing the eighth notes just as fast as I can…
I swing the eighth notes, therefore I am.”
I swing the eighth notes, therefore I am
If you don’t swing your eighth notes,
You jazzy tunes just won’t jam
‘Coz when you play jazz you gotta play by the rules
‘Coz the people who don’t swing ‘em are the people who ain’t cool
Descartes’ brother, he had a name
That went down in the hall of fame
His first name was “Doo”
His last name was “Bop”
He had a middle initial of “S” that stood for “Shoo-bie Doo-bie Bop”

BREAKAWAY (solos ad lib.)
Doo doo Shoo-bie Doo-bie Bop, baby.
Doot doot
Doot doot
Doo doo Shoo-bie Doo-bie Bop, baby.
Doot doot
Doot doot
I swing the eighth notes, therefore I am.

OUT OF THE ROLLING OCEAN [choral] (SATB, accompanied)

Two-Part) with piano accompaniment. “Out of the Rolling Ocean” will lull whomever hears it like a siren’s song in the night. Adapted from the poem, “Out of the Rolling Ocean the Crowd” by Walt Whitman. Written and composed by Jeffrey Eric Funk.


Out of the rolling ocean
The crowd came a voice
Whispering “I love you
Before long I must go”

I’ve come a long, long way
Merely to look on you
I could not go till I found you

Behold the ocean and the land
Hear the music of the storm
No one can separate us

Now we have met
We have look’d
We are safe
Return in peace to the ocean
I too am part of the sea
