Subject: Lyr Add: HEAR MY SONG VIOLETTA (from Josef Locke)
Wullie,

Hard cash, well no....just undying gratitude for the rest of my life!**Big Grin**

Hear my song, Vay, Vayohletta (this is phonetic to show how he phrases it, it's 'sposed to be a long "a")
Hear my song, beneath, 'neath the moon
Come to me, in my gondola,
Waiting on the old lagoon
Serenade across the water
Can you hear it soft & low
A tale of love and lovers singing long ago.

Hear my song, Violetta
When the dawn is breaking through
Still we meet in my gondola
Where we've been a full night thro'
Serenade across the water
Can you hear it soft and low
A tale of love and lovers singing long ago.

Hear my song in my gondola,
Waiting on the old lagoon.

The phrasing of some of the words is really drawn out, some even distinctly said as two words, such as "lo vers" in the 3rd from the bottom line. Do you have the tune? I might be able to figure out how to record it on my 'pewter, from the tape and send it to you in email. Let me know if that would help & I'll try it.

Good luck, I think I got them all correct.
