Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Le Corbeau Et Le Renard
Thanks for the tip, Jim. That would have been a lot easier and faster than typing the whole thing out myself - especially with an "English keyboard."
I know how to do the various diacritical marks for French et al., but it's a lot more cumbersome than just typing in English.

One of these days I will record myself singing the version I posted earlier and I'll share it with youse guys so you can hear the tune. Then Monique and the others fluent in French can critique my pronunciation (which is a hodgepodge derived from: college French courses taught by an Irish-American whose principal second language was German; listening to Édith Piaf and Charles Aznavaour records; and spending a summer teaching in Montréal).   *g*
