Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Hug (Ben Sands)(also Fred Small)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Song Reqd. The Hug.
Now, Murray, I guess I have to admit you got me. Fred Small copyrighted the "adult" version in 1981, and the children's version in 1984. I neglected to post the adult lyrics.

Still, I have to say I don't quite believe you. You said that the lyrics are the full version as you remember it. The lyrics are exactly the same as those printed in Breaking from the Line - The Songs of Fred Small. Even the punctuation is exactly the same (except that the songbook doesn't have the third children's verse).
So, 'fess up - am I supposed to believe you have a photogenic memory?
