Bill's ears are so fine, Wade have left them joined with on the back of his head, so as to prevent them snapping off.

This is possibly one of most readily recognised pieces of music written by Sir Paul McCartney. 'We All Stand Together' was the main feature of the animated featurette, 'Rupert and the Frog Chorus' first screened in 1984. It's popularity was such that it made No. 3 in the Uk Charts and the song was released in a number of formats including picture and even laser discs.
This sheet music is for Piano, Vocal and Guitar and it is not really that difficult to play. We found it available in print after 29 years! We have secured a quantity of them just for those budding musicians out there and for those who like a good sing along as well. A nice piece of collectable memorabilia as well, for those who can't tinkle the ivories!
