I wrote this ballad for those of us obsessed with the old fairy tale Mr. Fox, which has the infamous refrain, Be Bold, Be Bold. Basically the story of a lady betrothed to a serial killer. I took the liberty of changing Lady Mary’s name to Lady Marigold because rhyming. Baritone ukulele.

It is wonderful.


Really. The song, the voice, the ukulele.

I'm really ticked I won't see you in Vorheesville!

Thanks Kurt. I am bummed about Voorheesville, too. Would have been fun to see all our uke friends.
The song is way too long. I might have to cut some and speed it up. It’s just a test.

Actually, the length is pretty standard with a lot of the old ballads. They were the telenovas of the time.

Ask Tootler.
