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

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.

CHORUS

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
