on the slope
dog song 009
up the hill

So here is Napoleon’s song using the theme of one of his favorite activities, a walk up the hill. Now he could have selected a song about a ride in the car, but that would have been very high energy in 12/8 time with lots of brass and orchestral thunderclaps for enthusiasm.

So this little ballad is a bit quieter, nonetheless, deeply felt. The rhyme scheme is simple but when the world is so full of items to explore, you need to leave room for all that stimulation. Thank you , Napoleon, for being such a wonderful pal. We love you!
