A perfect companion piece to "So Long, Farewell" this is a comical and highly entertaining version of the famous puppet show song from The Sound of Music. The bass flute gets to play the fool in this arrangement, (which takes its inspiration from "men drinking beer with the foam afloat") with hilarious consequences!
