    Sorry I missed the night. It was my birthday and I was under orders to be elsewhere.

    Hello I am a newbie but looking forward to joining you on 7th, and for a colour song I'd propose Big Yellow Taxi. I can bring copies if it's not already in your songbook, which I don't yet have...?

    I'm planning on bringing "Purple People Eater", a 1958 novelty tune by Sheb Wooley. Will have enough copies for all and if I can convert to PDF I will upload the file before then.

    • Susan T.

      Love that thing!!

      November 2, 2013

    • Susan N.

      But it just has to be paired with Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini. Anyone?

      November 4, 2013

  • Janine C.

    I'll bring Beautiful Beautiful Brown Eyes. I remember singing the chorus to my grandmother's kelpie---as you do.

    1 · November 1, 2013

    • Susan N.

      Ahh. Nothing quite like a kelpie's eyes ...

      November 1, 2013

  • Susan T.

    I've put an extra in case we have time but the colour is in the group name not the title. Venus by Shocking Blue.

  • bob h.

    Janine---your comment gave me an idea for a song title: "On the Beach in Why Khaki". A Hawaiian connection could also be made with puce and the ukulele jumping flea thing. Puce is of French origin and refers to the colour of bloodstained flea droppings on your bed sheets.
    Francine---I note that Mellow Yellow has been tooken. No worries.

    October 20, 2013

    • Michael R.

      Do we change the words of Mellow Yello to "I'm just mad about Francine"?

      1 · October 20, 2013

    • Janine C.

      Bob ... so that would be puce juice! White sandy beaches of Why Khaki fixes beige rage, red mist, black dog ... I'll stop now. J

  • Michael R.

    Brown Sugar - will post file soon

    October 18, 2013

    • Michael R.

      Well, except for you, Don

      October 20, 2013

    • Don D.

      But I promise to be not offended by the racial and sexual overtones of Brown Sugar...great song.

    Hi Ross B Young, your file has only the riffs and then nothing more when I try to open it ...

    October 19, 2013

  • bob h.

    Mellow Yellow. Also thinking of writing a song about all the forgotten colours---khaki, beige, puce, etc.

    October 19, 2013

    • Janine C.

      Hey Bob still write that song - Whacki Khaki
