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
by JEFFREY ERIC FUNK

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
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

I SWING THE EIGHTH NOTES, THEREFORE I AM
by JEFFREY ERIC 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

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!
