Dear all

Here is my song list for Thursday, August 16th. Hopefully something for everyone and scope for a good laugh!

Sweet Caroline
Wild Rover
Edelweiss
Daydream Believer
You’ve Got a Friend
The Letter
Under the Boardwalk 
You’re Sixteen
Grandma’s Feather Bed
Ain’t Misbehavin
Hound Dog/Shake Rattle and Roll
Only You
Return to Sender
The Lion Sleeps Tonight
Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour
 
The songsheets are attached to my email. They are all basically Jim's songbook numbers, but I have changed keys on some to avoid breaking too many cut glasses, and have also tinkered around with some of the content to suit us -holics. They can all be watched on YouTube. 
I have a sparse printing capability, but will try and bring along a few copies.
See you Thursday.
Charles
