Could someone, please, analyze these three sentences (in terms of syntactic functions). It's pretty urgent! Tnx!

Freddy Malins said there was a Negro chieftain singing in the second part of Gaiety pantomime who had one of the finest tenor voices he had ever heard.

When she moved slightly, the great muscles of her nether cheeks rippled to life to prevent the stool from leaning and tottering even an inch.

Each cough caused a vague pain in his lungs that lingered on for moments after the cough had seared his throat and chest.

correction:

a vague pain = object
in her lungs = adverbial
that lingered ..... chest = adjectival referring to 'pain'
