**********************

I wrote the tune using my guitar and sent a scratch recording of me singing the song plus a PDF of the song sheet I made for the tune which included the words and guitar chords to Paul Raiman of www.MyRehearsalPianist.com.  He used what I sent him to create a musical accompaniment sing-along track and a printable PDF musical lead sheet that includes the melody, lyrics and guitar chords.

Paul’s skills amaze and delight me.  Now we can sing the song and kids at the school can sing the rules!

I also want to thank my guitar teacher Josh Walker.  He suggested a couple alternate chords that I liked very much and he’s the reason I was able to use my guitar to make and play the tune.

Working with marvelous musicians (even on a sweet, simple little tune) is a little slice of musical heaven.

I accidentally pushed the WordPress PUBLISH button when I wasn’t quite ready.

But have decided not to UNpublish this clearly half-baked post.

The plan is, as is the plan, really, with every post in this blog, to keep adding to it as info, ideas and inspiration arise.

What’s fer sher is that this is a delightful song and kids would LOVE it…and get a little geography lesson too boot.

I’m going to find a way to make a book for this deeeeeeelightful song.

I’VE GOT A GAL IN KALAMAZOO
Words and Music by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren 

Hi there Tex, how’s your new romance?
The one you met at the campus dance.

Wait until you see her you’ll agree,
My hometown gal’s the only one for me.

A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H I got a gal in Kalamazoo,
Don’t wanna boast,
But I know she’s the toast
Of Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

Years have gone by, my, my, how she grew,
I liked her looks
When I carried her books
In Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

I’m gonna send a wire,
Hoppin’ on a flyer,
Leavin’ today;
Am I dreamin’?
I can hear her screamin’,
“Hiya, Mister Jackson” ev’rything’s O-K-A-L-A-M-A-Z-O

Oh, what a gal, a real pipperoo;
I’ll make my bid
For that freckle-faced kid,
I’m hurryin’ to.
I’m goin’ to Michigan to see the sweetest gal in Kalamazoo.

A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H I got a gal in Kalamazoo,
Don’t wanna boast,
But I know she’s the toast
Of Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

Years have gone by, my, my, how she grew,
I liked her looks
When I carried her books
In Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

SINGABLE PICTURE BOOK WISHES 2 (SONGS THAT WISH TO BE ILLUSTRATED)

There songs are BEGGING to become Singable Picture Books
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/03/06/singable-picture-book-wishes-2-songs-that-wish-to-be-illustrated/

It’s been a LONG and COLD Winter of 2014 here in Arlington, VA.  I kept missing the opportunity to photo the icicles that hung by our porch wall at various times this entire winter and finally had my camera in hand after the last snow storm.

When icicles hang by the wall SBWE ELEG 2014 03 - Copy

And, of course, whenever I see icicles hanging by walls, I think of THE WINTER SONG (also sometimes called WHEN ICICLES HANG BY THE WALL) by William Shakespeare.

From Shakespeare’s play LOVE’S LABOUR’S LOST

Tuckahoe Discovery Schoolyard Rules Tune

**********************

Tuckahoe Elementary School in Arlington, VA boasts a wonderful outdoor learning program called the DISCOVERY SCHOOLYARD. The Discovery Schoolyard consists of gardens (most classrooms have dedicated gardens) that surround the school as well as a lovely courtyard garden in the center of the school.  Recently, the coordinator for the Discovery Schoolyard asked me to lead and “Expeditions” program, which is when a parent or volunteer takes a class of kids into these outdoor spaces to explore a subject in nature.

Of course I wanted to make my expedition program singable.  The coordinator asked if I might write a song using the rules some of the children came up with as schoolyard behavior guidelines so everyone (and everything) can be happy and safe in the gardens.

**********************
The children composed
TUCKAHOE ELEMENTARY DISCOVERY SCHOOLYARD OUTDOOR CLASSROOM RULES:

  1. Walk on the paths. Don’t run.
  2. Stay with your group.
  3. Be respectful of tools.
  4. Leave living nature in nature.
  5. Use correct voice levels.

**********************
I used this lovely set of rules to write
THE TUCKAHOE ELEMENTARY DISCOVERY SCHOOLYARD OUTDOOR CLASSROOM RULES TUNE
These are the original sing-along tracks I made when I wrote the song and played it on my guitar:

IF
BY RUDYARD KIPLING

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

HEY HO NOBODY HOME  is a song for those outside traveling, wassailing and hungry, who decide to be merry no matter what is in their purse.  And, anyway, even if the present house is empty (or those within refusing to answer the door and thereby missing out on the chance of good luck and a song for feeding the hungry singers), maybe the next house will give out food and drink for the merriment to continue.

TURN TURN TURN
Words From Ecclesiastes (c. 250 BCE, Translated into English in 1607)
Arranged and adapted with Music by Pete Seeger (in 1961)

To everything turn, turn turn
There is a season turn, turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything turn, turn turn
There is a season turn, turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To everything turn, turn turn
There is a season turn, turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

To everything turn, turn turn
There is a season turn, turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late

To everything turn, turn turn
There is a season turn, turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

To everything turn, turn turn
There is a season turn, turn turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

**********************

From Shakespeare’s AS YOU LIKE IT
Act V, Scene III

It was a lover and his lass,
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey-nonny-no,
That o’er the green corn-field did pass,
In the spring-time, the only pretty ring-time,
When birds do sing, hey ding-a-ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring.
