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!

OUT OF THE ROLLING OCEAN: A Sea Shanty

Posted on Updated on

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
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

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
