Some newer editions may already have these corrections.

  • opening tempo is closer to half note=69
  • 20: “noth-ing” should now be sung on two 8ths tied to a quarter, and then rest
  • 28: voice: “pack-age” should now be sung on 2 8ths tied to a quarter (or if you’d prefer to a dotted half, but definitely rest starting on measure 29)
  • 30: tempo should be “Slightly Slower” (not “A Tempo”)
