Scroll down -- but first:


The full score, the piano score, and even the instrument parts are all

 HERE 


Download the part for your instrument,
then come back here to follow along.


FIRST!


Download the book here


Or the Vocal Score here


Or the Piano/Vocal score here


and use it to follow along with the music below


NOTE: the vocal lines in the files below are "sung" by
a program called Alter Ego --  a robot.

IT'S FAR EASIER TO FOLLOW TO THIS ROBOTIC SINGING
THAN IT IS WITH A SIMPLE MUSICAL SOUND,

even though the voices might sound "creepy" to some ears.
You'll get used to it.

As to the quality of the singing,
it's not how well the bear sings, but that the bear sings at all.

Don't expect to understand all the lyrics
(how many radio lyrics can you actually understand?),
but download the score and/or script above to follow along.
