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

OUT OF THE ROLLING OCEAN [choral series]

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

I SWING THE EIGHTH NOTES, THEREFORE I AM [Kindle Edition] (choral with parts for rhythm section)

The Jazz Age is the rage. And now I Swing the Eighth Notes, Therefore I Am [Kindle Edition] sheet music is a click away! —JF

I SWING THE EIGHTH NOTES, THEREFORE I AM

by Jeff Funk

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.
