I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing

New Seekers 1971/ Cola advert/Arranged Milt Rogers

APOLOGIES for ropy ukulele backing.  Italicised for LOWs. There’s one very wrong chord on the practise track near the end – try not to let it put you off!

Notes: for those with Music score

We’re not using Alto & Bass line. Lows are singing Tenor (but most ladies sing it an octave higher).

Section E :Tune is in the Alto line(3rd down) for 4 bars, then back to top line.

                   Lows sing Alto for 4 bars, then C’s for 2 bars, then last 5 notes are as written for Tenor line

Page 11 Lows “sing it along” notes are F F G A (so the same as the previous “sing it along”
