Senor Don Gato – Beginner Piano Sheet Music and Lyrics

I just checked out this super fun book – Senor Don Gato. The story is fun and the illustrations by John Manders are amazing!

Here’s the story of Senor Don Gato in a nutshell:
Senor Don Gato, a cat, was sitting on a rooftop thinking about his true love. She had just has agreed to marry him. In his excitement he fell off the roof and died. During his funeral procession Don Gato smelled fresh fish. The scent was so strong that he came back to life.

Senor Don Gato: A Traditional Song – Illustrations by John Manders

senor-don-gato-book

Here’s a review from School Library Journal:
He is an urbane and charming feline, a Falstaff of cats, at home in his portly physique and quite confident of his charm and allure. Sure enough, a lovely white fluff ball of a lady cat is smitten. Her note to Don Gato so delights her swain that he jumps for joy-right off the roof, breaking his knee, ribs, and whiskers, “And his little solar plexus.” That looks like the end, and his fellow felines put him into a pine box. Followed by his weeping sweetheart, the cortege heads for the cemetery. On the way, they pass the fish market, the lovely smell revives the dead, and all ends happily. This traditional English version of a Mexican rhyme has rhythm and pulse. It reads aloud well, and is beautifully extended by Manders’s sun-drenched gouache illustrations. The gold tones give the effect of a trip to the south, and the humorous cartoon style gives viewers a Don Gato of charm and substance. Pair this with Charles Perrault’s Puss in Boots, as illustrated by Fred Marcellino (Farrar, 1990), for a storytime featuring two cats with class.

Lyrics for ‘Senor Don Gato’

Oh Senor Don Gato was a cat.
On a high red roof Don Gato sat.
He went there to read a letter,
Meow, meow, meow,
Where the reading light was better,
Meow, meow, meow,
‘Twas a love note for Don Gato.

I adore you wrote the lady cat,
Who was fluffy, white and nice and fat.
There was not a sweeter kitty,
Meow, meow, meow,
In the country or the city,
Meow, meow, meow,
And she said she’d wed Don Gato.

Oh, Don Gato jumped so happily,
He fell off the roof and broke his knee.
Broke his ribs and all his whiskers,
Meow, meow, meow,
And his little solar plexus,
Meow, meow, meow,
Ay Caramba cried Don Gato.

Then the doctors all came on the run,
Just to see if something could be done.
And they held a consultation,
Meow, meow, meow,
About how to save their patient,
Meow, meow, meow,
How to save Senor Don Gato.

But in spite of everything they tried,
Poor Senor Don Gato up and died.
And it wasn’t very merry,
Meow, meow, meow,
Going to the cemetery,
Meow, meow, meow,
For the ending of Don Gato.

When the funeral passed the market square,
Such a smell of fish was in the air.
Though his burial was slated,
Meow, meow, meow,
He became reanimated,
Meow, meow, meow,
He came back to life, Don Gato.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game | Beginner Guitar Sheet Music with TAB’s

Looking for a great piece for your beginning guitar player to enjoy practicing? Take Me Out to the Ball Game has been a favorite with kids for more than 100 years!

About ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game’

Take Me Out to the Ball Game is a 1908 Tin Pan Alley song by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer which has become the unofficial anthem of North American baseball, although neither of its authors had attended a game prior to writing the song.[1] The song’s chorus is traditionally sung during the middle of the seventh inning of a baseball game. Fans are generally encouraged to sing along, and at some ballparks, the words “home team” are replaced with the team name. Read more on Wikipedia.
