Frohliche Geburtstag



Here, one version of this Poor Almanac (and not the original one) which ran on Beethoven's birthday. I liked it so much I made several copies (I gave this one to my piano teacher). Here's another, in bistre ink.

Richard, did you know that you can also sing this to the tune of the Beverly Hillbillies? I do it all the time in my pajamas....

That's because it's a little known fact that Beethoven wrote both of those tunes (I think he was drunk.)
