Thread Name: Songs from the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround
Subject: RE: Songs from the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround
Songs, poems, and recitations from the 21/22 February 2022 Mudcat Worldwide Singaround, in the order in which they were performed. One of the participants had a birthday coming up, and suggested others might sing him unusual birthday songs. Some obliged, mostly with very short songs, for which I didn't get a title, so I've just cited them below as "Birthday song". Thanks to Moorley Man for the items presented before I came in, and thanks to Felipa for a correction. Comments and corrections always welcome.
