Lyrics: Or else I shall be melancholy too (melancholy too)
Comments: Beautiful tag, a little tricky on the timing of the swipes at the end, and a challenging bass interval to that 1st note on "too". This version has 4-part harmony throughout, eliminating the lead solo pickup, and the bari rest on the first "too". Also, the tenor has an extra swipe thrown in that makes it a little more "square" than the Classic Version.

From Bob Landrys Little Black Book of Tags. Notated in both "number system" format and standard notation.
