Thanks for the comment however I was referring to words put to the song to help teach Minuet 3 in Suzuki Book 1. For example Etude starts with UpsaDaisy, UpsaDaisy. I have words to all of the songs in Book 1 except for Minuet 3. I personally do not teach the Minuets with words but no some people that do and was curious to know if anyone had words for minuet 3. I should have clarified the question with more detail.

I found a video on youtube of The Lovers Concerto. It is very sweet however it only uses the beginning of Minuet 3.

Thanks for your comment.

I checked there first and found words to every other song but not Minuet 3. Thanks for the suggestion:)

This is a link to "Words to Suzuki Pieces" at the Amarillo College Suzuki Strings Project

My wife used to live in Amarillo.

Let me know if this helps.

All the tunes (not all goodie) are oldie

We learnt all the same pieces

(like our nephews and nieces)

Like, for instance, Mendelssohn-Bartholdy
