Appropriate, if nowhere near as jolly, is one of my favourites: http://www.thecopperfamily.com/songs/coppersongs/hard.html

Particularly excellent as sung by Roy Bailey.

Ah yes - great stuff, Beth. And let’s not forget St Billy’s re-working. This is another one for the Fat Prophet! At this rate, we’ll have given him a complete set.

I am very tempted and have downloaded the melody and lyrics to give it a try!!
The one last week went well. (If you want to see the general)

It’s only a matter of time before you’ll be adding CDs as well as books to your wares!

Now there’s a thought although my book is available in already in CD format read by the author. I have just transposed the music for this song into a key that I can sing it in without having to stand on a box (top E was a bit much) so will try it tomorrow to see how it goes and then get swmbo to try it with me and hopefully it will work.

One way or another, we’re going to have to get some recordings, FP.

looks like this is a definite maybe for Friday night - the other songs is one written by Robert Zimmerman and taken from his Slow Train Coming album. It tells the story of Adam naming the animals - hope it works ok, well that goes for both of them
