Piper’s Mountain.. a reprise..

Download Piper’s Mountain in PDF Format

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!!

  1. I’m intrigued by this, the artwork looks a bit like Edward Gorey – is there more inside? Your pdf file is unavailable without a RapidShare account…

  2. Very odd… it’s like an anti-consumerist Tim Burton animation with a script by the guys who made the original Monkey Island games. If this had been taught in more schools the credit crunch wouldn’t have happened!

  3. Delores

    Thanks so much!! My name is Delores, now 36! When I was in the last year of primary school, I remember singing queen of the chorus. Everyone would look at me on the Delores line. Such memories, thanks again’
