Thread Name: Tune Req: A Song of Patriotic Prejudice
Subject: RE: Tune wanted: The English (Flanders and Swann)
That one was going through my head last week, particularly the line about the Americans cheering when they've won, and practicing beforehand and ruining the fun. I've heard a rumor, by the way, that there is a pretty complete Flanders and Swann song book out there. Anyone else heard about this, or where to acquire it. I do have a recording Barbara, "Best of Flanders and Swann; Trumpet of Delight" on EMI. I'm awful at the technical stuff, but I suppose I could sing it over the phone if you REALLY got desparate.
