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!

LYRIC SHEET*
BELIEVE IN THE MUSIC
by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK

VERSE 1
Calling out from the darkness
Voices of hope echo through the land
Shining bright, there’s a new dawn
Driven by dreams, we will take a stand
We can
Search for promise and truth
Reach for stars in the sky
We’ll find peace in the wonder
Rhythm and rhyme
And with music in my heart
I’m gonna fly!

CHORUS
You’ve got to believe in the music
Feel its power set you free
Believe in the music
I can feel it lifting, pushing
Calling, guiding me…
Yes, I believe in the music

VERSE 2
Just imagine a future
Lifted by love
Let your heart fly free
Dream of better tomorrows
We’ll make the world
Sing in harmony
You’ll see
With a voice that is strong
We’ll have hope we can share
With our song we can chase away
All despair
If you reach out or call me, I will be there

CHORUS
You’ve got to believe in the music
Feel its power set you free
Believe in the music
I can feel it lifting, pushing
Calling, guiding me…
Yes, I believe in the music

BRIDGE
Oh, I’ll lift my hands
I’ll lift them high
Reach for the mountains
Touch the sky
I’ll pull the stars down
One by one
The magic of music
Has begun

CHORUS 2x
