World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 26th May – ‘Slip Sliding Away’ led by Rose Hodgson

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a little while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music. If you would like an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session, that can be downloaded here, where you’ll also find the words! This week’s lyrics are also below.

This live event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop to recap and sing-along to.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Song: Slip Sliding Away

(Paul Simon)

 

Tune and top harmony:

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away

You know the nearer your destination, the more you’re slip sliding away

 

Bottom backing part:

Sliding away, you’re sliding away

Slip sliding away, you’re sliding away

The nearer you get, the more you’re sliding away

 

Higher backing part:

Slip sliding away, oh you’re slip sliding way

Oh the nearer you get, the more you’re slip sliding away
