Hello!  Below you will find the music and lyrics for the All Choir Songs 😀 Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks!

Corner of the Sky

Solo – Lower School Doesn’t Sing

 

Cats fit on the windowsill

Children fit in the snow

Why do I feel I don’t fit in anywhere I go?

 

Rivers belong where they can ramble

Eagles belong where they can fly

I’ve got to be where my spirit can run free

Got to find my corner of the sky

 

Every man has his daydreams

Every man has his goal

 

MIDDLE AND UPPER SCHOOL SING

 

Rivers belong where they can ramble

Eagles belong where they can fly

I’ve got to be where my spirit can run free

Got to find my corner of the sky

 

So many men seem destined

To settle for something small

But I won’t rest until I know I’ll have it all

So don’t ask where I’m going

Just listen when I’m gone

And far away you’ll hear me singing

 

Rivers belong where they can ramble

Eagles belong where they can fly

I’ve got to be where my spirit can run free

Got to find my corner of the sky

Of the sky ——– Corner of the Sky!

This Is Me

 

Solo – LS Not Singing

 

But I won’t let them break me down to dust

I know that there’s a place for us

For we are glorious

 

When the sharpest words wanna cut me down

I’m gonna send a flood, gonna drown ‘em out

I am brave, I am bruised

I am who I’m meant to be, this is me

Look out ’cause here I come

And I’m marching on to the beat I drum

I’m not scared to be seen

I make no apologies, this is me

Last 2nd Grade Musical Song

Enjoy!

We Remember
There was a day when freedom’s light seemed very far away.
There was a day that looked like night; we dreamed of yesterday.
But even when the day is dark and rainbows hard to see,
The heroes walk among us and people still live free, we still live free.
We remember the day we all stood strong.  We remember when we were one in song.
We remember, remember.
There was a day when Americans chose to take a stand.
There was a day when the best of friends offered us heir hand.
The world can still be beautiful but even when it’s gray.
The sun will shine upon us and warm our tears away.  And so we say,
We remember the day we all stood strong.  We remember when we were one in song.
We remember, remember.
(Music With Words)

New 2nd Grade Musical Post – America Goes West!

America Goes West!
Let tyrants shake their iron rod, and slavery clank her galling chains.
We fear them not, we trust in God, New England’s God forever reigns.

Lay down boys and take a little nap, fourteen miles to the Cumberland Gap.
Cumberland Gap, Cumberland Gap, Way down yonder in the Cumberland Gap.
?Fare thee well, Old Joe Clark, fare thee well, lim gone.
Fare thee well, Old Joe Clark, goodbye, I’m gone.

We’ve formed our band, we are all well-manned to journey a far to the promised land.
The golden ore is rich in store on the banks of the Sacramento shore.
Then ho, boys ho! To California go!
There’s plenty of gold in the world I’m told on the banks of Sacramento shor!

WESTWARD HO!

Hello 2nd grade parents and students!  It’s time to get rehearsing at home for the upcoming 2nd grade musical, Let’s Sing, America!  Below you will find the 1st three songs we have covered in class.  I have attached the song with the background voices for added help and the song without the voices for rehearsing how it will be on stage.  PLEASE take the time to work on the music at home.  I have also attached the script in case anyone else needs an extra copy.

Let’s Sing, America! Script-26kn5p7

Of Thee I Sing, America
There is a country full of dignity and life! There is a country born of freedom, born of strife.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.

There is a nation in a land of liberty. There is a nation where the people all live free.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.

America! America! The red the white and blue!
America! America! I sing this song for all of you!

I love my country, so I’ll proudly take my stand!
I love my country, so I’ll sing throughout the land.

Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.
Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing! Of thee I sing, America.
America! America!

The Star Spangled Banner
Oh say can you see, by the dawn’s early light.
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming? ?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro’ the perilous fight.
O’er the ramparts we watch’d, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star spangled banner yet wave,
o’re the land of the free, and the home of the brave?

(Song with Voice)

(Song without Voice)

Let’s Sing, America!
She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain when she comes! YEE HA!
She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain when she comes! YEE HA!
She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain, she’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain,
She’ll be comin’ ’round the mountain when she comes! YEE HA!

You’re a grand old flag, you’re a high flying flag, and forever in peace may you wave;
You’re the emblem of the land I love, the home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true ‘neath the red, white and blue, where there’s never a boast or brag;
But should auld, acquaintance be forgot, keep your eye on the grand old flag!

Oh when the saints go marching in, Oh when the saints go marching in,
Oh, how I want to be in that number, when the saints go marching in!

Oceans of fun! It’s one for all and all for one,

and let the fun begin!

 

Oceans of fun! We’re playing in the sun.

Oceans of fun! We’re swimming ‘till the day is done.

Oceans of fun! It’s one for all and all for one,

Out here in the sea, everything is free.

There’s no admission fee in our ocean family

Swimming when its light, swimming when it’s night,

In our ocean park, it’s never too dark, unless we see a SHARK!

We’re Sharks!

Mako Rap solo

A shark may have three thousand teeth,

Some on top, some underneath,

When we chew, we just might leave a mark,

That’s what it is… to be a SHARK!

They’re sharks__leaving their marks__

they’re sharks__leaving their marks__

Not outlaws, just usin’ their jaws,

they’re sharks__leaving their marks

 

Hammerhead Rap solo

Got no bones only cartilage, but some have bodies as big as a fridge!

We only swim forward, we never back up,

And when there’s plankton, We’re there to snack up!

They’re sharks__leaving their marks__

they’re sharks__leaving their marks__

Not outlaws, just usin’ their jaws,

they’re sharks__leaving their marks

 

Blue shark Rap solo

You might see me coming with my dorsal fin.

If you get in my way, I usually win!

Even a whale is afraid of me! We’re sharks, not chickens of the sea!
They’re sharks__leaving their marks__

they’re sharks__leaving their marks__

Not outlaws, just usin’ their jaws, they’re sharks__leaving their marks.

They’re sharks__leaving their marks__

They’re sharks__leaving their marks____ YO!!

Commotion in the Ocean

There’s a commotion in the ocean, and it’s lots of fun.

The commotion in the ocean is for everyone.

So come on in and sit right down, but you might get splashed by a nautical clown!

Oh the commotion in the ocean is beneath the sea.

The commotion in the ocean is for you and me.

It’s such a crazy notion; its perpetual motion.

It’s underwater comedy!

Clown Fish Bo and Zo tell jokes (certain students)

Clown Fish 1: Zo and Clown Fish 2: Bo tell jokes in the middle of the song

Verse 1) Hey Bo!                         Yea Zo?

Have you heard what sits on the bottom of the sea and shakes?

No, what sits on the bottom on the sea and shakes?

A NERVOUS WRECK!

It’s such a crazy notion; its perpetual motion.

It’s underwater comedy!

Verse 2) Hey Zo!                        Yea Bo?

So where do you think fish keep their money?

I don’t know….. where DO fish keep their money?         In the river bank!

It’s such a crazy notion; its perpetual motion.

It’s underwater comedy!

(Faster)There’s a commotion in the ocean, and it’s lots of fun.

The commotion in the ocean is for everyone.

           So come on in and sit right down,

but you might get splashed by a nautical clown!

(even faster!)Oh the commotion in the ocean is beneath the sea.

The commotion in the ocean is for you and me.

It’s such a crazy notion; its perpetual motion.

It’s underwater comedy!

It’s un-der-wa-ter com-e-dy!

Spring 2018 – Lower School Choir Music

Hello! I know this is EARLY BUT – NEVER too early to start practicing!  Here is the music for Raving Ravens this Spring.

Candle On The Water

I’ll be your candle on the water, my love for you will always burn.

I know you’re lost and drifting but the clouds are lifting,

don’t give up you have somewhere to turn.

 

I’ll be your candle on the water, till ev’ry wave is warm and bright.

My soul is there beside you let this candle guide you,

Soon you’ll see a golden stream of light.

 

A cold and friendless tide has found you, don’t let the stormy darkness pull you down.

I’ll paint a ray of hope around you circling in the air, lightened by a prayer.

 

I’ll be your candle on the water, this flame inside of me will grow.

Keep holding on, you’ll make it. Here’s my hand, so take it,

Look for me reaching to how. As sure as  rivers flow, I’ll never let go.

Never let you go. Never let you go. I’ll be your candle on the water.

I’ve Gotta Crow

I’ve gotta crow! (crow sound)

I’m just the cleverest fellow ‘twas ever my fortune to know. (crow sound)

I taught a trick to my shadow to stick to the top of my toe.

I’ve gotta crow!

 

I’ve gotta brag (crow sound)

I think it’s sweet I have fingers and feet I can wiggle and wag. (crow sound)

I can climb trees and play tag with the breeze in the meadow below.

I’ve gotta crow!

 

If I were a very ordinary everyday thing, I’d never be heard cockadoodling ‘round like a bird!

That’s absurd!  But, naturally, (crow sound)

when I discover the cleverness of a remarkable me, (crow sound)

How can I hide it when deep down inside, it just tickles me so,

That i’ve gotta let go and crow!

 

I’m really a rare thing, such a fair thing, I can’t keep still. I’m bursting with pride,

And I just couldn’t keep it inside, if i tried.

So, naturally, (crow sound)

when I discover the cleverness of a remarkable me, (crow sound)

How can I hide it when deep down inside, it just tickles me so,

That i’ve gotta let go and crow! (crow sound)

I Love A Piano

I love a piano, I love a piano, I love to hear somebody play

Upon a piano, a grand piano, it simply carries me away.

I know a fine way to treat a Steinway;

I love to run my fingers o’er the keys, the ivories.


And with the pedal I love to meddle, not only music from Broadway,

I’m so delighted if i’m invited, to hear a long haired genius play.

So you can keep your fiddle and a bow, give me a P-I-A-N-O.

Oh, oh. I love to stop right beside an upright or a high toned baby grand.

 

Gee, what a sound, wonderful sound; wish I could listen all day!

Easy to smile all of the while, when I hear somebody play.

The tune is ringing; my heart is singing.

Oh, yes, I love to hear that ragtime melody.  

 

Boogie and jazz, razz-a-ma-tazz; anything else that they play.

Happy or blue, classical too; all of it brightens my day.

It’s the finest music I know, and I love it so.

Morning or night, mellow or bright; gee, a piano is grand!

 

I think pianos are grand!

Castle On A Cloud


There is a castle on a cloud

I like to go there in my sleep

Aren’t any floors for me to sweep

Not in my castle on a cloud

There is a lady all in white

Holds me and sings a lullaby

She’s nice to see and she’s soft to touch

She says Cosette I love you very much

I know a place where no ones lost

I know a place where no one cries

Crying at all is not allowed

Not in my castle on a cloud
