Thread Name: Learning and remembering the words..
Subject: RE: Learning and remembering the words..
one device i have employed for the Carter Family song Roses--oh my, i've forgotten the title now...oh, yes, Give me the Roses...is
the word "Whiffenpoof"   that helps me recall the first words in the
3 verses...."Wonderful" (things of folks are said, when they have passed away)... "Folks" (are forgiven when they lie cold in that narrow bed) ..."Praises" (are heard not by the dead, flowers they cannot see) so if I remember that the first words start with W F and P that gets me thru the song...so Whiff...Fen...Poof does that for me!
