Lean On Me by Bill Withers

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you don't let show

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear
That you can't carry
I'm right up the road
I'll share your load
If you just call me

Call Me (If you need a friend)
Call Me (call me)
Call Me (If you need a friend)
Call Me (If you ever need a friend)
Call Me (call me)
Call Me
Call Me (If you need friend)
Call Me.

LYRICS:
Hold on to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road
And although this wave (wave) is stringing us along

Just know you're not alone
'Cause I'm gonna make this place your home

Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble—it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you're not alone
'Cause I'm gonna make this place your home

Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo. Oo-oo-oo-oo [2x]
Aaa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa. Aa-aa-aa-aaaaaa [4x]

Settle down, it'll all be clear
Don't pay no mind to the demons
They fill you with fear
The trouble it might drag you down
If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you're not alone
'Cause I'm gonna make this place your home

(Come on!)

Ooo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo. Ao-oo-oo-oo [4x]
Aaa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa-aa. Aa-aa-aa-aaaaaa [4x]




"I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz



When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well, there's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

Well, I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got, yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not, and who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up, still looking up.

Well, I won't give up on us (no I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough enough (I am tough, I am loved)
We've got a lot to learn (we're alive, we are loved)
God knows we're worth it (and we're worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up




The VIRGINIA REEL

A folk dance from the 17th century. Back before electronics and other modern forms of entertainment, people would make music in the evening with their families and at larger gatherings. Dancing would often accompany the live music. We learned a modified version of THE VIRGINIA REEL and danced to TURKEY IN THE STRAW.



DANCE:
Introduction: 8 beats
Walk in 4 beats
Bow 4 beats
Walk back 4 beats
Wait for 4 beats
Walk in 4 beats
Right arm swing 4 beats
Back 4 beats
Wait 4 beats
Walk in 4 beats
Left arm swing 4 beats (Head couple remains)
Back 4 beats
Head couple slides down the set for 8 beats
Head couple slides back up the set for 8 beats and peels off
Repeat

Minuet in G
(version with vocals)

(version without vocals)

Bach wrote a minuet one day, he played it on his clavier.
Such lovely music played on a keyboard 300 years ago!
His 20 children loved this song, they sang and danced it all night long.
It's a French dance so take the right stance and we will all begin.
Li, li, li......loo, loo, loo
123, One twirl please
Li, li, li......loo, loo, loo
123, Then you take a bow

ONE DAY- BY MATISYAHU



RECORDER PART:




One Day Recorder Part.png




VERSE 1
Sometimes I lay under the moon

And thank God I'm breathing

Then I pray don't take me soon

'Cause I am here for a reason


PRE-CHORUS:

Sometimes in my tears I drown

But I never let it get me down

So when negativity surrounds

I know some day it'll all turn around because...


CHORUS:
All my life I've been waiting for

I've been praying for

For the people to say

That we don't wanna fight no more

There’ll be no more wars

And our children will play

One day [x6]



VERSE 2
It's not about win or lose

Because we all lose

When they feed on the souls of the innocent

Blood-drenched pavement

Keep on moving though the waters stay raging

In this maze you can lose your way (your way)

It might drive you crazy but don't let it faze you

no way (no way)


GO BACK TO: PRE-CHORUS/CHORUS


VERSE 3

One day this all will change

Treat people the same

Stop with the violence

Down with the hate


One day we'll all be free

And proud to be

Under the same sun

Singing songs of freedom like

One day [x2]


GO BACK TO: CHORUS (2x's)
