Hells Bottom Congress of Puppets: When One Door Closes…

This is page seven of a 13-part song book accompanying the “Hell’s Bottom Congress Of Puppets” folk opera, created by Saul Aroha Nui Tea. The song is loosely inspired by “The Band Played Waltzing Matilda” by The Pogues and “Chim Chim Cher-Ee (Winds in the East)” from the musical “Mary Poppins.”

Look for the rest of the opera in future editions of Street Sense and find music videos made with puppets of the characters, along with more information about the project, at congressofpuppets.blogspot.com.
