ONE SMILE
Words and Music by
Jeffrey Eric Funk

Just one smile is all it takes to make
One more smile on one more face.
Then that smile is bound to cause another
Shining face like no other.

Spread cheer to those around you ‘coz
Just one frown can get you down.
When gray clouds are blocking out the Sunshine, just you wait;
You’ll see blue skies.

When you walk down the street,
Smile at people you meet.
Sometimes just one smile is all it takes to
Make one more smile on one more face.
Good times head your way
When you start your day with just one smile.

Just one smile can change your mood
When you’re lost in thought or feeling blue.
Take time out to spend some time together
With close friends; you’ll feel better.

One smile to pass along ‘coz you
Never know, it might catch on.
We might have a cause for celebration,
Spreading joy ‘cross the nation.

When you walk down the street,
Smile at people you meet.
Sometimes just one smile is all it takes to
Make one more smile on one more face.
Good times head your way
When you start your day with just one smile.

One smile!

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
