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

1st Grade

A little snowflake fell out of the sky.

At first, it floated, then started to fly.

It should have melted the warmer it got.

But I can tell you that snowflake would not!

It was flying! It was flying!

It was flying! Didn’t have a care!

It was flying! It was flying!

It was flying in the air!

 

The little snowflake decided to dance.

It didn’t know how, but it took a chance.

It skipped and jumped in a rhythmic display.

It danced a waltz and a snowflake ballet!

It was dancing! It was dancing!

It was dancing! Didn’t have a care!

It was dancing! It was dancing!

It was dancing in the air!

 

The little snowflake decided to sing.

It sang of summer and autumn and spring.

It sang of winter and sounded so proud.

The little snowflake was singing out loud!

It was singing! It was singing!

It was singing! Didn’t have a care!

It was singing! It was singing!

It was singing in the air!

 

It was flying! It was dancing!

It was singing! Didn’t have a care!

It was flying! It was dancing!

It was singing in the air!

O, Hanukkah, O, Hanukkah, we’ll light the menorah;
we’ll celebrate the season by dancing the horah!
Happiness and joy on this holiday.
Ev’ry day for eight days children will play!
And while we are playing, the candles of Hanukkah glow!

Shining so brightly, reminding us nightly
of wonders of days long ago.
Shining so brightly, reminding us nightly

Christmas Chopsticks

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.

All the stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In the hope that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

 

He’s bringing lots of toys, for girls and boys.

But wait until you see that Merry Christmas Tree.

 

So, On! Dasher, On! Dancer, On! Prancer and Vixen,

On! Comet, On! Cupid, On! Donner and Blitzen!

To the top of the roof, to the top of the wall,

Here they come and they’re say’n, “Merry Christmas to all!”

 

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.

All the stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In the hope that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

 

Deck the hall with boughs of holly. Fa la la la la.

‘Tis the season to be jolly. Fal la la la la la la la la.

 

‘Twas the night before Christmas.

All the stockings were hung for St. Nicholas.

 

So, On! Dasher, On! Dancer, On! Prancer and Vixen,

On! Comet, On! Cupid, On! Donner and Blitzen!

Here they come and they’re say’n, “Merry Christmas to all!”

Carol of the Star

A star, a shining star, led wise men on their way

to find that Bethl’em town where lay a holy babe.

 

Ve – ni- te a-do-re-mus Do-mi-num,

Ve – ni- te a-do-re-mus Do-mi-num,

 

A star, a guiding star, let angels from above.

To seek a tiny baby, surround Him with their love.

 

Ve – ni- te a-do-re-mus Do-mi-num,

Ve – ni- te a-do-re-mus Do-mi-num,

 

A star, a mighty star, did shine o’er all the earth.

To welcome Him with joy, proclaim His wondrous birth.

 

Ve – ni- te a-do-re-mus Do-mi-num,

Go Tell It On The Mountain

Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev’rywhere.

Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born.

 

While shepherds kept their watching o’er silent flocks by night,

Behold throughout the heavens, there shone a holy light.

 

Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev’rywhere.

Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born.

 

The shepherds feared and trembled when lo, above the earth

Rang out the angel chorus that hailed our Savior’s birth.

 

Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev’rywhere.

Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born.

 

Down in a lowly manger the humble Christ was born,

And God sent us salvation that blessed Christmas morn.

 

Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev’rywhere.

Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born.

 

That Jesus Christ is born.

Christmas Toys on Parade

Trumpets herald a special day when they begin to play their blazing song;

Snare drums steadily keep the beat coaxing the eager feet to march along.

Colors of ev’ry shade and hue pass in full review before their eyes.

Toyland suddenly springs to life, toys of ev’ry size now mobilize.

 

Whenever the music starts to play, they fall in line, they move in time.

Whenever the music comes their way, they hear the sound, they march around in bright array.

Whenever the music starts to play, they fall in line, they move in time.

Whenever the music comes their way, Christmas toys are now on parade, ————-

 

On their way to Toyland, Toyland, wonder inspiring joy land!  

While you dwell within it, you’re as happy as can be.

Toyland, Toyland, mystical, merry joy land!

Once you’ve crossed its border  you may never want to leave.———————-

 

Toyland town is locked up tight and ev’rything is quiet for the night,

When suddenly the clock strikes twelve and the fun begins.

Here them all cheering, now they are nearing, toys as far as you can see.

Horses are prancing soldiers advancing, adding to the pageantry.

Coronets flashing, royalty passing, Toyland Town is all arrayed.

Oh, the sights that you will see when Christmas toys are on parade,

 

When Christmas toys are on parade!

—Where Can We Find Peace?—

Where can we find peace? Where can we find love?
In the eyes of others, in the skies above.
Where can we find hope? Where can we find joy?
In the smiles of a stranger, in the face of a girl and boy.
Peace, love, hope and joy.
Reach out your heart and touch someone.
Peace, love, hope and joy.
These are the things that make us one.
Where can we find peace? Where can we find love?
In the world around us. One the wings of a dove.
Where can we find hope? Where can we find joy?
In the arms of a mother of a newborn girl or boy.
Peace, love, hope and joy.
Reach out your heart and touch someone.
Peace, love, hope and joy.
These are the things that make us one.

—With A Song—

We come from many places. We come with many dreams.
We come with many faces. We’re different, so it seems.
But when we sing together, we’re singing with one voice.
Yes, when we sing together, we will rejoice.
With a song, we are united.
With a song, we are one.
With a song, we’re joined together.
With a song, we’ve only just begun.
Our lives are filled with music. Our hearts are filled with song.
Ah_________ united, together we are strong.
The melody is moving.  The harmony is bright.
And, when we sing together, we sing with joy, we sing with might.
With a song, we are united.
With a song, we are one.
With a song, we’re joined together.
With a song, we’ve only just begun.  We’ve just begun. (repeat)
With a song, we’ve only just begun.
We’ve just begun. We’ve just begun. With a song.
