I SWING THE EIGHTH NOTES, THEREFORE I AM [choral]

(SATB, accompanied with opt. parts for guitar, bass and drums)

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

I SWING THE EIGHTH NOTES, THEREFORE I AM
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.

MUSIC OF MY DREAMS 

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

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

From the composer of Glee Club Smarties™ comes a sea shanty for mixed choir (SATB), men’s choir (TBB) and women’s choir (SSA/opt. 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

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

CAGED BIRD [choral] (SATB, accompanied)
Caged Bird is a gospel rock choral work for SATB Voices Accompanied with opportunities for feature soloists written by Jeffrey Eric Funk. If you’re looking for a song to fire up the audience, you’ve found it!

CAGED BIRD
by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK

If I could fly thru the sky, I’d reach up and touch the stars
I know someday my dreams will take me far
I’ll sing a brand new song, sing it proud and strong
I long for the day I’ll spread my wings
Just hear how a caged bird sings

A caged bird sings for freedom
Freedom won’t you hear my song?
I’ve been lock’d up far too long
Spread my wings
I long to fly

I watch the clouds changin’ shape, I see colored autumn leaves
I’ll get my chance to soar above the trees
I’ll make a joyful noise; hope is in my voice
My day is approaching, you will see
I know soon I will be free

CHORUS

Take me, take me to the sky
Oo, lift me, lift me higher. Higher!
Sing! Come ‘n’ listen to my voice
Hear how a caged bird sings

CHORUS

THE MAJESTY AND THE POWER [choral series] (SATB, accompanied)

The Majesty and the Power is an inspirational anthem for SATB voices and piano written and composed by Jeffrey Eric Funk ideal for community choirs or sacred services.

THE MAJESTY AND THE POWER by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK

There was a time when we believed
We could imagine and trust in our dreams
Clouds changin’ shape, orange sunset skies
Watching the wonder through child-like eyes
Can you remember?

I feel it, I know there’s love all around
A world where hope shines when rainbows are found
We can climb the highest mountain, we can swim the deepest sea
With the Majesty and the Power of our dreams

Fly ‘cross the sky, we’ll touch the stars
There are no limits, our dreams take us far
An open door your heart will find
Unlock the magic inside your mind
It’s there. Believe it.

CHORUS

When gray clouds are near we’ll find the silver lining
Believe, our dreams will shine

CHORUS

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
