  • They say the beat of a butterflies wings
    Can set off a storm the world away
    What if they're right and the smallest of things
    Can power the strongest hurricane?
    What if it all begins inside?
    We hold the key that turns the tide

    Just a pebble in the water (ohh)
    Can set the sea in motion (ohh)
    A simple act of kindness (ohh)
    Can stir the widest ocean
    If we show a little love (oh, little love)
    Heaven knows what we could change, oh yeah
    So throw a pebble in the water (oh yeah)
    Make a wave, make a wave
    Make a wave, make a wave

    The single choice to take a stand
    And reach out your hand to someone in need (help somebody)
    Don't fool yourself and say you can't
    You never know what can grow (let it grow)
    From just one seed (yeah)

    So come with me and seize the day
    This world may never be the same

    Just a pebble in the water
    (Just a pebble in the water)
    Can set the sea in motion
    (Set the sea in motion)
    A simple act of kindness (ohh)
    Can stir the widest ocean
    (Stir the widest ocean)
    If we show a little love
    (If we show a little love)
    Heaven knows that we could change
    (Heaven knows that we can change)
    So throw a pebble in the water
    (Throw a pebble in the water)
    Make a wave, make a wave

    (Make a wave)
    Make a wave, make a wave (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    (Make a wave, make a wave)
    Make a wave, make a wave (make)
    (Show a little love and make a wave, seize the day)
    Make a wave, make a wave
    (Heaven knows what we could change)

    So let's show a little love
    You never know what we could change
    So throw a pebble in the water
    Make a wave, make a wave
    Oh, oh, oh, oh Writer/s: Scott Krippayne, Jeffrey Donald Peabody

  • Jill from Nevada City, CaI want to bring more awareness about the oceans to our church congregation, where I am the music director. I'd like our music team to play and sing "Make A Wave" for our entire church group. Could someone please tell us where to get the sheet music? I have looked and looked. Thanks very much, Jill

One of the most popular classical vocalists in the land is lining up a trip to space, which is the inspiration for many of her songs.

Gentle Giant

Gentle GiantSongwriter Interviews

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.

Gene Simmons of Kiss

Gene Simmons of KissSongwriter Interviews

The Kiss rocker covers a lot of ground in this interview, including why there are no Kiss collaborations, and why the Rock Hall has "become a sham."

Prince

PrinceFact or Fiction

Prince is shrouded in mystery, making him an excellent candidate for Fact or Fiction. Is he really a Scientologist? Does he own an exotic animal?

Dexys (Kevin Rowland and Jim Paterson)

Dexys (Kevin Rowland and Jim Paterson)Songwriter Interviews

"Come On Eileen" was a colossal '80s hit, but the band - far more appreciated in their native UK than stateside - released just three albums before their split. Now, Dexys is back.

Band Names

Was "Pearl" Eddie Vedder's grandmother, and did she really make a hallucinogenic jam? Did Journey have a contest to name the group? And what does KISS stand for anyway?
