The Rules Of The Game Have Changed update

Ecletech, Doghorse and Bo Bo D'Or noticed the post 'The Rules of the Game Have Changed' and have sent me an m-peg of it set to scarily martial music. It's brilliant. You can listen to it here.

Thank you very much, talented Tim!

The rules haven't changed. They've just become more obvious. They have been like this for a very long time.

Rachel - the martial backing music is a really powerful way of rendering "The Rules Of The Game".

If you are still looking to find a tune for singing it, try the old Andy Stewart song "Donald, where's yer Troosers", which fits perfectly.

Yes, I know this was a comic song! But the tune, as with many popular airs, can be moving. (If you've seen it, remember the use of Waltzing Matilda in the film of On the Beach.)

The way you've written it with a repeated 4th line, what's needed for making it a song is a CHORUS. I respectfully suggest the following.

Let the wind blow high, let the wind blow low /
You change the rules, but this we know /
You always reap whatever you sow /
The rules of the game have changed.
