‘Rock Around The Clock!’ Bill Haley cried
That was nineteen-fifty-five
Then came Elvis, Elvis the Pelvis
Made the girls all scream and cry
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Do the Twist and do the Stroll
The Fish, The Swim and the Monkey too
Mashed Potato and The Boogaloo
Dance craze crazy, that’s rock’n’roll

The Beatles in nineteen-sixty-two
Showed the world what they could do
Mop-top hair, shaking in the air
Love Me Do and She Loves You
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Back-beat drums they were knock, knock, knocking
Electric guitars they were rock, rock, rocking
Go-go girls they were bop, bop, bopping
They were all having fun! Go-go!

Martin Luther King in sixty-three
Had a dream that he could see
Black and white dancing through the night
Everybody would be free
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

Dance, dance, rock’n’roll
Do the Twist and do the Stroll
The Fish, The Swim and the Monkey too
Mashed Potato and The Boogaloo
Dance craze crazy, that’s rockin’

Dance craze crazy, that’s rock’n’roll
 


Drop in the Ocean

Drop in the Ocean Song


INTRO (whispered)

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean

 

A (verse 1 )

Can you hear?

There's a whisper in the air.

Can you feel that a new heart is beating?

Each drop runs down to the end of the river,

Where the past and the future are one.

 

B (verse 2)

Some may sail to the ends of the world,

But no matter how mighty their journey,

Ev'ry stranger they meet will tomorrow be a brother,

Ev'ry life's another drop in the ocean.

 

C (chorus 1)

I'm a drop in the ocean, drop of emotion:

I'm a part of the ever-changing tide.

I can rise up as rain, I can fall down like thunder.

All it takes is just a drop in the ocean.

 

D (bridge)

 

E (verse 3)

Some have died for a wish to be free;

Some at war, some for no crime or reason.

Ev'ry tear falling down helped the world tell its story:

Ev'ry life's another drop in the ocean

 

F (chorus 2)

I'm a drop in the ocean, drop of emotion:

I'm a part of the ever-changing tide.

I can rise up as rain, I can fall down like thunder.

All it takes is just a drop in the ocean.

 

G (bridge) (whispered)

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean

H (chorus 3)

I'm a drop in the ocean, drop of emotion:

I'm a drop in the ocean of dreams.

I can touch ev'ry shore, join together ev'ry nation.

All it takes is just a drop in the ocean.

 

I (coda)  (whispered)

Drop, drop, drop in the ocean (4 times)

(sung) ... The ocean ... (4 times)

1. Sad Chorus

Sad Chorus Song

Ah! Eurydice has left us forever.

Eurydice, lovely shadow,

If your soul hovers near us,

Hear our sighing, bitter crying,

Tears of sorrow, which lamenting,

Which lamenting we shed on your grave.

 

Hear the cries of your unhappy husband

Who with bitter weeping tries to reach you,

As the tender dove is dying.

Weak and weary from bitter crying,

His lonely heart dies in pain and despair.

 

 

2. Furies’ Chorus

Furies Chorus Song

Who dares approach this place?

Who dares to show their face?

Why does he now appear?

What does he want down here?

Have you no fear?

 

Lightning will strike your heart,

Tearing your soul apart,

Cerb'rus, the dog of hell

Will crush your bones as well.

You must de-part!

 

Lightning will strike your heart,

Tearing your soul apart,

You must de-part!

 

Lightning will strike your heart,

Tearing your soul apart,

Cerb'rus, the dog of hell

Will crush your bones as well.

You must de-part!

4. Open the Gates

Open The Gate Song

Stranger your misery

And your humility

Pleading so plaintively

Soften the implacable fury of Hell.

 

Slowly, but surely

We'll op-en the doors for him.

Freely and willingly

We'll show the way to him

For he has won!

 

Freely and willingly

We'll show the way to him

For he has won!

 

Slowly, but surely

We'll op-en the doors for him.

Freely and willingly

We'll show the way to him

For he has won!

 

Freely and willingly

We'll show the way to him

For he has won!

For he has won!

 

5. He has lost his Eurydice

We Have Lost Our Eurydice

He has lost his Eurydice

What is life without his love?

Hope farewell, joy fare-well,

Where is hope when she is gone?

What is life when she is gone?

 

We have lost our Eurydice

What is life without our love?

Hope farewell, joy farewell,

Where is hope when she is gone?

What is life when she is gone?
