I mentioned rediscovering this slightly sinister music book from my Primary School a few weeks back. Along with these reminisces I dangled the carrot of scanning and uploading the songbook rather than just posting the lyrics to the song in particular that had been nagging away at my subconscious.
Well, thanks to me finally getting over my habitual procrastination (and thanks to the excellent Genius Scan app on my iPhone) I have finally gotten around to it. So I’ve made a PDF file containing the whole songbook, which I’ve uploaded to this Rapidshare location.
You can tell I was a child of Thatcher’s Britain – the whole premise of the songbook is clearly designed to gear up a generation of children to not want anything much from life!
Now who can remember the one involving a song competition where the hero of the piece fooled the baddy (who was trying to copy his song) by creating a spoof song about a Blackbird? C’mon… somebody else in the world must remember it!!
