Thread Name: Lyr Req: Baby Owlet
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Baby Owlet
Yeah, you're right; actually, I sing it
"Singing as DAWN shines above" -

but decided a little while ago that "Dawn" didn't make much sense, while "Moon" did - (dawn doesn't shine; moon shines above) and the poor little baby owlet wouldn't make it alone all the way to Dawn - he would need comforting loooooooooonnng before that!

I typed it the "logical" way, thinking that I must have been singing it wrong all these 50+ years...........

Glad that someone else remembers it (and that I wasn't too far off - still wish I could see it in some songbook tho' - I've looked thru all my GS songbooks, but couldn't find it.   Sigh.

Thanx for bringing a smile to my face!
