Furry Leez (Für Elise)
From Plank Road Publishingadapted/arr. Teresa Jennings and Karl Hitzemann
So, who exactly was the "Elise" from Beethoven's bagatelle "Für Elise"? Probably not actually Furry Leez. Students will have a lot of fun performing this one. Make sure to let your singers really ham it up in the "almost sneezing" section and the "sneezing" part at the end.
While the lyrics to our arrangement are quite silly, the accompaniment is not. The piano part is just as Beethoven wrote, with two exceptions - the key was changed from A minor to E minor (a much better singing range), and the time signature was changed from 3/8 to 3/4. This is a great opportunity to introduce a lesson on Beethoven and have some fun at the same time. (from Music K-8, Vol. 22, No. 5)
