    For an example of the kind of music behind this song (Garifuna from Livingston, Guatemala), you can see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=YrwFYq6Bl3k

  3. The Love Of A Friend


    Chorus:
    The love of a friend
    Is worth more than money
    The love of a friend
    Is sweeter than honey
    You’ll never get it from anyone else
    In your family or in your love

I am absolutely certain I have got stories rejected on this issue alone.

    At the same time, I must say that the idea that Scots, Lancastrians, Yellowbellies

The video of the five songs which she sings at the party, including this one, becomes her "Princess Party" videopack that makes her famous on the ICT (UN's new internet).

    She does a popular Guatemalan children's song, "Vamos a la mar", but then
