Pelrad Songs I can't sing (55* d) RE: Songs I can't sing 21 Jul 99

Ferret and SueH, thanks muchly for references for The Blacksmith. Ferret, that is very close to the introductory wording for the one Louis sings. I'll have to check it out. Sue, I'm afraid I don't know what the ABC means, but I'm gonna find out! Thanks. :-)

Barbara and Bert, thanks for the suggestions. I do have chanteys I can sing beautifully, and I restrict my working repertoire to them, but several years ago I decided that for the sake of historical accuracy I should know several of each kind of chantey (halyards, pumps, etc). I still keep them all in mind, but discovered very quickly that I can't expect them to go over well. LOL Having witnessed Bulgine Run performed by petite, sweet Daisy Nell and then later by the thunderous Don Sineti, I have vowed to avoid songs that make me sound ridiculous.
