Update for Mid May 2019

Choir is ON this coming week (21 May), and you may be sad to hear that we are moving on from bees!!

1. Buzz Away – 2 verses
2. Bee Boys Song – all 3 verses
3. Inversnaid – round sung 3 times and with part 1 repeating the last line
4. Janet’s solo – you just sing “buzz buzz” on the 5 choruses (it will be obvious)
5.English Country Garden – 3 verses. Please practise the words.
6. Buzz Away again – to end on a strong song about how the bees are going to “buzz off” if we don’t start treating them properly!

To hear any songs again you can look on the website and sing along.

A song to end our sessions with
