Here's a lead sheet for a Wayne Shorter composition "Water Babies" as recorded on a Miles Davis album of the same name. (I managed to delete the original posting, hence the repost.)

The tune is performed on Shorter's "Supernova" at much slower pace with loose and open feel. The changes follow mainly the following progression:

Time signature: 3/4
Tempo: ca. 120
Form: AABA
