Thread Name: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
Subject: RE: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
"Jimmie Rodgers sang a well-known version ("English Country Garden"), which reached Number 5 in the UK charts in June 1962. The lyrics refer to several species of bird which are not native to England but are found only in the Americas." (Wiki)...For what it's worth, I think I'll replace those species with natives with the same number of syllables before I sing it again.
