Thread Name: Lyr Add: I'll Take Vanilla (w/tune)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: I'll Take Vanilla (w/tune)
Wheeee! That's a lovely song. And thanks ever so much for posting the tune with it; it's always so frustrating to find a great song and be unable to sing it due to not knowing the tune. However, I have a few confusions as to what notes go with what words; I've posted my best guess below, please post a corrected one if I'm wrong. (I'm using the lyrics method from the draft 2.0 ABC standard)

What does the "," in the 2nd measure mean? I haven't been able to find any reference to a comman in the ABC standard (I'm probably just missing it...)

The following lines don't seem to fit in the ABC you posted: "(Ice cream for me)!"

T:I'll Take Vanilla
   D4   D4 | E2 D2 B ,3z|G4   G4    |

w: You can| talk of| your walks in the moon-light's pale beams.
w: But a girl can't go wrong on vanilla ice cream!
   G4      G4 | A2 G2 E3 z|
w: So~I'll take| va-nil-la. |
   G2   B2    B2 B2 |G2 A2 A2 G2| F2    G5 z|]
w: Just plain va-nil-la (Va-nil-la, Dear, I hear you calling me!)

As you can see, it's obviously not fitting well... Any help appreciated!
