Subject: How not to forget words?
Like many people, I'm sometimes hit with a sudden loss of memory when performing, at a singaround, a song I've sung countless times at home without trouble.

The technique I've found helps most, is to try not to listen very much to the singer immediately before me, but instead to go over my own song in my head during their turn. Not always easy, though, if that singer is particularly good, or if they're leading a rousing chorus song!

What other suggestions do Mudcatters have for not forgetting words?
