Subject: RE: Need Lyrics:Mex. wedding song:Los Mananitas
Hi, Rob. You didn't say how soon you need the song. I was tied up all day yesterday, I'll type them in today or tomorrow. I'd like to learn it myself. But would it work for me to snail-mail you the sheet music? That way you'd have tune and all, and see how the tune fits the words. There's a lot of elision (?), ie the last syllable of one word is combined with first syllable of next word on a single note. Same thing happens with Italian songs. - R. Ferrara
