Subject: RE: Learning and remembering the words..
Even having the words right in front of me doesn't always pay off. Some years ago I was asked to sing a particular song at a wedding. It was not one I knew and so I had to get two copies of the sheet music - one for the organist and one for me.

When the great day came I managed fairly well through the first couple of verses and the chorus. But then I lost my place entirely. The organist wasn't going to stop since I had no way of communicating my problem to him. What I wound up doing was to invent two more verses right then and there!
