Thread Name: Songs from the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround
Subject: RE: Mudcat Worldwide Singaround - On Zoom Mondays
Here's my list of songs/poems/stories that were sung/recited/shared, in order, at the Singaround on 8/9 February 2021. Thanks as ever to Moorley Man for filling me in on the ones that came before I joined. As usual, I made up names for Jane Nicholls' stories, "The Flood and the Family" and "Two Lads and a Foal". "God Bless the Birds" seemed like a good title for Elizabeth Block's takeoff on "God Bless the Grass". "Are You Out There" is a guess for a song Hazel Richings sang. Corrections, additions, and random wisecracks always welcome. Here you go:
