9781782434269: Auld Lang Syne: Words to Songs You Used to Know

Never again let a half-remembered, memory-laden tune fade back into the recesses of your mind, only able to recall a piece of melody or chorus

Our memories are bursting with half-remembered songs. They stick with us in a way that no other words do. Just the first few notes of a tune can bring a sports stadium full of people to their feet, or kindle memories of starlit nights around a campfire, or remind us of a bedtime lullaby soothing us to sleep. But so often after those first few lines we’re left humming until the chorus comes back in. Now, with this little book, you need never miss a line again. Inside you’ll find beloved songs from across the English-speaking world, including tunes from Australia ("Waltzing Matilda"), America ("He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot"), Canada ('She's LIke the Swallow"), and Ireland ("Whiskey in the Jar" and "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling"), as well as the UK ("Greensleeves" and "London Bridge Is Falling Down"). There are lesser-known gems listed among the firm favorites, which are accompanied by short text explaining the origins and stories behind the lyrics. Celebrating the wonderful variety of songs, shanties, ballads, ditties, and anthems that wind through our lives and bring us together, Auld Lang Syne is a timeless collection for all to cherish.
