The story of the lyric is perhaps more suited for an older member of human-kind but the piece has been performed by a school jazz group with conviction, as well as older groups. Piano comping is not needed, just keep the rhythm steady and phrase where written. The piece is basically in 16s with some cross rhythms and time sig changes. Chord symbols are provided. It was written for a comedian/vocalist when I played for a living in my younger days, who, I don't think, ever used it on stage.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
