Subject: ADD: Help Me Make It through the Zoom (PattyClink)
From: pattyClink
Date: 08 Jun 21 - 11:16 AM

With apologies to Mr. K, here are the extra verses sung at the Mudcat Worldwide Singaround celebration of 1 year of online gatherings.

HELP ME MAKE IT THROUGH THE ZOOM
(Patty Clink)

Now it's Monday on the Zoom, and I don't have my song chose,                                                        
But you let me babble on, kindly cohost crew and Joe.

Make my audio do right, though I have no earthly clue                                                
As I suck up all my time, help me make it through the Zoom.

        I don't care if I mumble, sing words you can't understand                                                
        Let the devil take the title, Lord, I just love to make you guess
                                                        
They say folksong's dead and gone, and for us there is no room                                                
But we prove them wrong each week, help me make it through the Zoom,
We're a very special group, help us make it through the Zoom.

Noreen, Casey, Mrrzy, Dave; Arlene, Gerry, Monique, Gayle,                                                         
Blessings on you and dear Joe, you help us make it through the Zoom.

Here's a little something I wrote to mark the occasion:

Mudcat Time
to the tune of Summertime

Mudcat time, and the zoomin' is easy
Folks are hummin' and the singin' is fine
Well Joe Offer's here, and we're all so good lookin'
So mute, little 'Catters, your number's assigned

Now ev'ry Monday, we all rise up singin'
From around the world, we laugh and we cry
For some it's mornin', and for others it's evenin'
Till Joe sends us off with some sweet lullabye

Mudcat time, and the helpers are busy
Thanks to Casey, Mrzzy, Dave and Arlene
Gayle and Gerry, et aussi cher Monique
And last but not least, Dawn and Noreen

Mudcat time, and the zoomin' is easy
Folks are hummin' and the singin' is fine
Well Joe Offer's here, and with gas we are cookin'
So sing, little 'Catters, time to shine!

Mrrzy, well-spotted! According to Wikipedia, "The song sung in the wardroom is 'Don't Forget Your Old Shipmates', a British Navy song written in the early 1800s and arranged in 1978 by Jim Mageean from his album Of Ships... and Men."

Felipa, it's a folk song, recorded by many artists, using many different titles and spellings and lyrics. I learned the song from David Holt's album, Reel And Rock, and his spelling was The Coo Coo. Clarence Ashley called it Coo Coo Bird. It was called "The Coo Coo Bird" on Doc Watson, The Vanguard Years.

Latkes was sung to the tune of "The cuckoo" rather than the "coo coo". The cuckoo is a pretty bird, she warbles as she flies. And she never hollers "cuckoo" [coo coo?] till the fourth day of July." I learned the song before I moved to a place where I heard many cuckoos, and they holler in May.

Here's my list of songs/poems/stories that were sung/recited/told, in order, at the Singaround on 1/2 March 2021. Thanks as ever to Moorley Man for filling me in on the ones that came before I joined. Some uncertainties: I couldn't find any song called "Death and the Doctor" – is that title right? All I could find for Ring of the Nibelungen was a cycle of four operas, and I doubt that's what Joe sang.

The Czech song was called Voják which translates as Soldier. I wouldn't call it a lullaby - the first verse translates to

The translation of the three verses:

(1) When I didn't die in the war, I also will not die back home.
(2) When I didn't die on the French meadows, I will not die by my sweetheart.
(3) When I didn't die alongside the Austrians, I will not die with my lords.

Last Night we played Can y Bugail by Geraint Jarman & Meic Stephens (There should be a To Bach/Circumflex over the 'A' in 'Can', but I can't work out the HTML!).
I promised the lyrics for this morning, but I need to delve a bit deeper, so please bear with me.
I have an English translation, but I will wait until I have the Welsh as well before posting.
Thanks for a great evening(UK), we will be back.

Thanks, SPB. I've added the Czech. I went back and forth between "Everyone Calls Me Tarzan" and "Tarzan of the Apes" as I saw each given as the title by various sources, so I've edited to show both as alternatives.

The title in Czech is Slunécko, which is a diminuitive of slunce which translates as Sun. Wasn't too happy with the performance though, I think neres or tiredness got the better of me, and maybe I should do new material firth time round. The other title - according to the Sheet Music is 'Everyone Calls Me Tarzan'.

Oh, no doubt that will happen in time, Felipa. In fact, it's happening now to a great extent. But it takes time.
I'm trying to keep the main announcement thread clear for announcing coming singarounds. It's fine to post other things there, but eventually they will be moved to more permanent homes.
It's a very easy thing for me to move a message to another thread.

For the most part, I have been starting or refreshing threads during the Singaround for songs that aren't common or that we don't have full information for, and then researching and discussing the songs over the coming week.

Gerry Myerson and others started building lists of songs sung at the singarounds, so we started this thread for those lists and as a temporary resting place for lyrics. Monique is managing a thread for songs from the Singaround that are not in English.

We've been trying our best to document sources for lyrics and to ensure we have correct and proofread lyrics in the "origins" and "DTStudy" threads. But until lyrics have been checked, it's nice to keep them elsewhere until they're ready for "origins" threads.

would it not be handier to have this thread be for lists of which songs are sung each week (presently given in an exceeding long discussion of everything and anything to do with the Mon night song session), with links to the lyrics in their own threads? If the lyrics are not already on Mudcat, they deserve their own threads. A group of songs with related themes would suit being together in a thread, but here we are going to have songs which have little in common apart from having been sung at the same singing circle.

I just checked my records after last night's magnificent singaround, and i find that i sang Anna Shannon's Yorkshire Song there myself on the very first edition of the Singaround, 8th June last year!
It's truly one of those songs that haunts you for ever.
But hey, doesn't time fly?!!!

Barrie, I'll certainly agree with that description of the "silky smooth to die for voice."
It's such a pleasure to hear Hazel sing. But hey, the rest of us sing pretty good, too.

First heard from Hazel Richings, she with the silky smooth to die for voice.
I sang this beautiful song 08/02/21.

Yorkshire Song by Anna Shanon

When heather's bloom has faded long….. and turned to brown
When pheasant chides his bright alarm
When rolling mist the valley shrouds…. in silent arms
Once more I know this place to be my home

I heard the curlew cry today…. on windswept heath
A plaintive call on rising wing
And as I watched from ragged lines….. of weathered trees
My heart stirred from her place to go with him

There's not one thing I would not give…. to be as he
To circle here in joyous flight
And on these moors my life to live…. to simply be
My spirit to go on in hill and scree

I wish that I could write a song….. that had no words
Of beauteous things and journeys run
For many is the time I've tried….. and tales begun
But with beauty such as this the words won't come

When heather's bloom has faded long….. and turned to brown
When pheasant chides his bright alarm
When rolling mist the valley shrouds….. in silent arms
Once more I know this place to be my home

SPB, thanks! I will edit the list.
Felipa, I was wondering the same thing, but Prof Google tells me that it's done both ways, and Jim Lucas definitely sang it as McCassery.

    In Folk Song in England, A.L. Lloyd has it listed both ways, McCassery and McCafferty - and McCaffery. -Joe O.-

Here's my list of songs/poems/stories that were sung/recited/shared, in order, at the Singaround on 1/2 February 2021. Thanks as ever to Moorley Man for filling me in on the ones that came before I joined. I didn't get a title for Fred Maslan's song, "Sailing to Victoria" is a guess. I'm guessing "Always Belay" and "In Praise of Men" as the names for Jane Nicholls' stories. "I May Not Have Long" is a guess for Storm's song. Digital Tradition has six versions of Hieland Laddie, and Tony said the one Joe put in the chat wasn't what he (Tony) was singing. I didn't catch a title for Sadie's poem for The Birthday of Francis J. Child. "Liza Jane" comes in many flavors with varying titles. Corrections, additions, and random wisecracks always welcome.

Ha ha; I’ve now found the thread for posting new Mudcat zoom songs

Here are the lyrics for he song HERMIONE by DANIEL KELLY which I sang on 25 January zoom session. The tune is ROLLING DOWN TO OLD MAUI.
(Copied from the Mudcat worldwide sing around on zoom Monday’s — or something like that!)

HERMIONE by DANIEL KELLY
It's a damn tough life full of toil and strife we Gryffindors undergo,
We don't give a damn when the term is done how many facts we know.
But there is one girl, that we know for sure, will still at her studying be,
We’ll drink butter beer and give a cheer to the girl Hermione.

Yes her name’s Hermione, it is,
Her name’s Hermione,
We will win house cup, when the year is up
Thanks to our Hermione

Once more we fail at the Potions class, wicked recipes Snape has made,
But Hermione read, and with level head, she has brewed the winning grade,
While Crabb and Goyle set their hair on fire, and Malfoy makes a scowl,
When Hermione reads every word she needs, She’ll be outstanding in every owl.

A Ravenclaw some said she’d be, but they couldn’t be more wrong,
Though her mind is sharp, she’s a lion’s heart, and her will is mighty strong,
She is sometimes gruff, like a Hufflepuff, but there’s a sparkle in her eye,
Though her bloods not pure, she will endure and triumph by and by.

There's 12 keys to choose from, 24 if you count minor, 84 if you go modal, and with microtonal it stretches to infinity.
