How many parts: 4
Type: Barbershop
Lyrics: You are the center of everyone's attention
Comments: Bob Landry was eating at a Chinese restaurant with fellow barbershoppers. One of their fortune cookies contained these lyrics, and the lucky numbers 6-7-8-21-34-45-5-9-1. They noticed the lyrics had exactly the same number of syllables as the number of digits in the lucky numbers. And,... a tag was born!! Since X=Do in number system notation, 1 and 8 become X's, and the 9 becomes a 2.

From Bob Landrys Little Black Book of Tags. Notated in "number system" format, with X=Do and 2, 3, 4, etc denoting position in the major scale. An underline pushes the note up a 1/2, no flats. A dash indicates a held note. A slash indicates direction of the next note when further than 1/2 octave. No sight-reading necessary.
