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!

Spring 2018 – Raving Ravens Music

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

Jordan’s Angels

Angels, Angels. Oooooooooo

 

Lookin’ out over Jordan, all I could see: a band of angels comin’ after me.

Gabriel was playin’ the trumpet, David was playin’ the harp.

Someday my soul shall be free. I shall be free.

 

All night, all day, the angels keep a watchin’ over me, my Lord.

All night and all day, angels watchin’ over me!

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
