Choir

Hey Maroota Public School Choir!

Here are the three songs we are doing at the moment.

——————————

Lean on Me by Bill Withers lyrics (see for this link for lyric video with music – note we are skipping some parts, use below lyrics for our arrangement)

Hmm
Hmm hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm hmm
Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm

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 won’t let show

You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

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

You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

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

Just Like Fire by P!nk lyrics (see Full version lyric video here and Karaoke video here)

I know that I’m running out of time
I want it all, mmm, mmm (Solo 1)
And I’m wishing they’d stop tryna turn me off
I want it on, mmm, mmm (Solo 2)
And I’m walking on a wire, trying to go higher
Feels like I’m surrounded by clow-owns and liars (Solo 3)
Even when I give it all away
I want it all, mmm, mmm (Solo 4)

Spoken: We came here to run it, run it, run it, We came here to run it, run it, run it

Just like fire, burning out the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I’ll be flying free
I’mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way
Just like fire

And people like to laugh at you cause they are all the same, mmm, mmm (Solo 5)
See I would rather we just go our different way than play the game mm, mm (Solo 6)
And no matter the weather, we can do it better
You and me together, forever and ever (Solo 7)
We don’t have to worry bout’ a thing, bout’ a thing (Solo 8)

Spoken: We came here to run it, run it, run it, We came here to run it, run it, run it

Just like fire, burning out the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I’ll be flying free
I’mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?

No one can be just like me any way
Just like fire

Spoken: We came here to run it, run it, run it

Rap: So look I came here to run it
Just cause nobody’s done it
Y’all don’t think I can run it
But look, I’ve been here, I’ve done it
Impossible? Please
Watch, I do it with ease
You just gotta believe
Come on, come on with me

Just like fire, burning out the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way

Just like fire, burning out the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I’ll be flying free
I’mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way

Just like fire

Spoken: Run it, run it!

Just like fire

Spoken: Run it, run it!

Testimonials

Testimonials:

“I don’t think I can explain in words how much you’ve helped me. You sacrificed your recess and lunch to help me practice for the musical you taught me how to go low and high and how to control my voice. You helped me find the hidden talents that was still un-found inside me I am very thankful for that because with out that I would’ve doubted myself to this day. You’ve inspired me to become the person I am today which is a humorous patient girl. I try to follow your attitude.” Year 5 performing arts student

“Thanks is not enough when someone cares the way you care. To tell you so you really understand how much it means to have the warmth and encouragement you share. Thanks is only part of all the heartfelt gratitude. Thanks is just a portion of a deep appreciation for sharing so much goodness from your heart. Your kindness is such a source of joy and inspiration for your students and school community at large!” Principal, Australian International Academy Strathfield

“I booked with Mrs Patmore’s music when I needed a pianist for my wedding ceremony and reception. Not only was she very professional and organized whilst booking with but she was very helpful with choosing suitable songs which helped me with the stress I already had with planning my wedding. Not just that though, even the songs I wanted that I had chose myself and asked if she could play them she did and perfectly too which I was happily grateful for as it meant alot to hear them on our special day. I am so thankful I was suggested to her as she really made my day extra special. I would definitely recommend her to everyone I know. She is very talented and a lovely person to deal with. Thank you Mrs Patmore’s Music for help making our day as perfect as it was.” Margaret Giakoumelos

Experience

A Snapshot of my Community Theatre Involvement

Firstly, I played Mrs Squires in Hornsby Musical Society’s 2017 production of The Music Man. A review by Sydney Arts Guide is linked here, another one from Hornsby Advocate is below, and some promotional shots with me in character can be also be found below.

In 2016 I was musical director for the fantastic cast and crew of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum”, produced by Dural Musical Society. More information and promotional shots can be found here.

I also performed in the chorus in 2015 in Snow White, again produced by the Dural Musical Society. Two of my students were in it too as dwarfs, cute! A review by Sydney Arts Guide can be found here.

Give Me A Home Among The Gum Trees

For a video of the song with lyrics click here

Chorus (singing)

Give me a home among the gum trees
With lots of plum trees
A sheep or two, a k-kangaroo
A clothesline out the back
Verandah out the front
And an old rocking chair.

For the rest of the song, we will just say and tap the following rhythm:

Tahn TahnTahnshhh

“Tahn            Tahn          Tahn       Shhhh”

Do the ‘shhhh’ quietly and do not tap your knees :-) (it means don’t make a sound)

But remember to do the kookaburra singing, just like the song does! :-)
