This is a response to a reply in Book Suggestions, which said, 'Come here to make further comments,' so I came here to make a further comment.
Ahem

THOSE LITTLE WORDS
(with apologies to modest lassies
and people with literary taste--
or any sort of taste)
Tune: make up your own

I hae ye ken those 'little words'
In Burn's Merry Muses
Which, spoken in a class or kirk
Dismays, perturbs, confuses
Are, in the copy one may find
In the Internet Archive,
Sae careful blanked or blinked or blotched
'Tis nearly good to shrive
So hae nae fear that ye may read--
Because in fact ye won't--
Unexpurgated versions of
A__e, c__k or f__k or or c__t!

Of course, what to do when they're read aloud is another matter! Incidentally, I did a search for 'old Scottish tunes,' thinking perhaps to find audios of some of the ones used for the verses in case anyone wanted to try singing, but airs like 'Clout the Cauldron,' 'The tailor fell thro the bed,' 'The Quaker's Wife,' 'Sir Alex Don's Straphspey' and 'Push About the Orum' don't seem to be that popular on the Net nowadays. I didn't search for any of them individually so I won't say they can't be found; and of course there might be Scottish Librivox members on whose lips any and all of these might linger frequently.

Could I do "John Anderson, My Jo" for this collection?

I guess for a future volume which I hope will be put up for volunteers soon, as this one seems almost finished.

Could I do Ae Fond Kiss? Unless someone else is already doing it?

And I'd love to be part of the last one!

I may have had the wrong title before. It's a bit confusing. There's the big title and then there's the exact title of the work I read. I think this is what you want. More coming! Patti

Thanks Patti! This project is very much Joseph's baby - I'm just the friendly neighbourhood MC. :D I'm sure he'll be along soon to take a listen.

The PL notes for Secs. 6, 13, 15, and 22 are posted. Wonderful reading.

I'm sorry that I'm a little behind on the listening, friends; I was hit with a sudden illness that kept me away, but I'm looking forward to catching up!

The notations are up for Secs. 14, 22, and 23.

Carol, lovely, lovely job. Charles and Andy--your readings are excellent, and quite enjoyable for listening.

Hullo! Is there a reason why nothing's checked off as complete in this project? :? Or is it just lack of clarity over who exercises THE POWER?
It's just that my (long ago PLed) section is sitting there accusingly in my 'projects with some sections incomplete' list (which is what I use to 'organise' - for want of a better word - myself, and which is frankly long enough even without it :wink:) every time I look.
