EARTHLINGS
Words and Music by
Jeffrey Eric Funk

Walking through the world,
I can see all kinds of creatures.
Take a look around,
Notice all their special features.

Each step of the way
I’m meeting all kinds of people;
No two are the same.
We’re a part of one big world of…

Earthlings, special people.
Earthlings, I know we will
Meet all sizes, shapes and colors,
Young and old together,
Filling the world with love.
We can sing in perfect harmony.

I know deep inside,
We all shine with
Inner beauty.
From all walks of life,
People come together,
You’ll see!

One lesson to learn,
I’m starting to understand it,
We’re creatures of Earth
Spreading love around this planet.

Earthlings, special people.
Earthlings, I know we will
Meet all sizes, shapes and colors,
Young and old together,
Filling the world with love.
We can sing in perfect harmony.

Earthlings!

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

RAGTIME — Choral Selections from the Broadway Musical

Available Now
RAGTIME (Choral Selections) by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens. Arranged by Jeff Funk featuring the songs Ragtime, New Music, Till We Reach That Day, Wheels of a Dream, Our Children, Make Them Hear You & Success. I worked from the composer & lyricist’s original score to arrange the songs in this medley. This is as authentic as choral charts get to the actual Broadway music! It’s an especially good selection for college and community choirs. • SATB,  SAB

 

 

MAKE THEM HEAR YOUSATB, SAB, TTBB

From the Broadway musical Ragtime by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty comes this exceptional men’s choir arrangement. The powerful lyrics together with the exceptional melody make this a truly remarkable song that is destined to be a Broadway classic.

 

OUR CHILDRENSATB

Pre-Broadway runs of the Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens musical Ragtime played to packed houses in Toronto and Los Angeles. Now on Broadway, it’s one of the toughest tickets to get in New York. Sure to make an incredible impact on the ’98 Tony awards, this show is a winner! ‘Our Children’ is a touching ballad sung by parents reflecting on their children. It’s wonderful!
