I am a Steinway and Sons artist, have sold millions of recordings and had over 30 White House performances. Requests were made at a White House party for some Stevie Wonder tunes so I immediately pulled out my iPad, summoned Musicnotes and bought sheet music for "Overjoyed" and "Ribbon in the Sky". Your company has made me look great in so many performances. Thank you for this fabulous gift musicnotes is to performers.
- David Osborne, Steinway Artist and "Pianist to the Presidents"
I sing some of the most current songs thanks to Musicnotes. I do not know how I would be able to find such great quality piano pieces and such an affordable price anywhere else. I love that I can find basically any song I want in your wide variety of music. I am also glad that you give a preview of the song so I can hear it before I buy it. This site is such a huge help to my performing abilities and is the ONLY site that I will buy sheet music from.
- Z. Schaffer, High School Student
As a piano bar performer I must try to play all requests. I need the sheet music now, today, while it is hot and can earn me tips. I don't have time to find it in a collection or something containing songs I already have, or to wait for the Post Office to deliver it to me. With Musicnotes I can order it, pay for it, and have it in minutes. I can use the song that night & make a better living.

Kamazz - Princess, chords for guitar
First Verse: Em C Lonely in the sky, the moon Am B I already knew everything in advance: Em C What is the phenomenon of your beauty, Am B Again my consciousness will change. Em C Am What is wrong with me already? B Em Happens what week. C Am Tell me who invented you like this? B Em I have never seen such a fairy. C Lady, we are at fault, we are alone, Am You tell me, you open up B Em for me on fire. C Dancing by the moon, we're on my fire Am B I like it so much, come to me. Chorus: Em C Dance for me my princess Am B And I'll sit opposite in the chair. Em C You're just fire, that's for sure Am B Dance for me so openly.

Second couplet: Em C Am Let me look at you B Em I want to remember all this. C I want you even more Am I shout it to the whole world, B Em If so, pardon my indiscretion... C Spoiled me with her body Am My head is full of only you. B Em Give me a drink - C Your dancing turns me on so much. Am I give free rein to my fingers B Em After all, it belongs to the two of us. C Lady, we are at fault, we are alone, Am B You tell me, you open up Em For me on fire. C Dancing by the moon, we're on my fire Am B I like it so much, come to me.

Dramateshka - Anna Bogacheva. I WANT THE MOON!
A play based on the fairy tale of the same name by Eleanor Farjohn.
AND MANY OTHERS…
The cook stirs porridge in a large pot on the stove. She blows on a spoon, cooling the porridge, tastes it, adds either salt or sugar, trying very hard.
COOKER. Hey porridge! The porridge will be great! A little more sugar... that's it! Mmm! Lick your fingers, what a treat! Someone likes semolina porridge, and someone likes rice. The main thing is to add butter! For example, I really like porridge with butter. And the royal daughter...
PRINCESS (squeaked) With jam!
COOK. Yes, you are my sweetheart! Yes, you are my baby! With jam!?
PRINCESS. With strawberries!
COOK. Yes, you are my bunny! With strawberries!? U-tu-tu!
PRINCESS. I want porridge! (knocks spoon on the table) I want porridge! Want! Want! Want!
COOKING (to the princess). Yes, my joy, yes, my charm! (to the side). Oh, and it's hard to please our capricious! Well, I'll try, I'll cook! There will be no porridge, but just a fairy tale! Mmmm, fairy tale! Someone likes funny stories, and someone sad. The main thing is that there is wisdom in the fairy tale. For example, I really like wise fairy tales.
PRINCESS. And I love funny!
COOK. Yes, you are my baby! Funny loves, naughty!
PRINCESS. I want a fairy tale! I want a fairy tale!
COOK. But what about porridge?
PRINCESS. Fairy tale! Fairy tale! Fairy tale!
COOK. First porridge. Eat at least a spoonful!
PRINCESS. I want a fairy tale! Funny!
COOK. Here you go! Again whims! Can you imagine what would happen if everyone stopped doing what they had to do and started doing what they please?
PRINCESS. It will be fun!
COOK. Oh, I doubt it.
PRINCESS. Well, tell a story! Tell me! Just be sure to be funny!
COOK. Well, listen...
It's getting dark, the music is playing, the magic Moon is lit up in the sky with a silver light.
PRINCESS (opened her mouth in amazement). Ltd! How lovely!
The princess pulls her hands to the moon.
COOKER. Did the princess like Luna?
PRINCESS. I want the moon! I want the moon! I want the moon!
COOK. The desire of a royal daughter is the law for everyone. Our princess has never been denied anything. But how can we be? The moon is so high!
PRINCESS. I'm going to the attic!
COOK. Be careful, my child!
PRINCESS (in the attic she pulls her hands towards the moon). I want the moon! I want the moon! I'll get on the roof!
COOK. But why do you need the moon? She, like the Sun, shines for everyone. The moon cannot belong to anyone alone.
PRINCESS. I'll climb the chimney and reach for the sky! Here!
COOK. What are the inventions?
PRINCESS (looks down). Ouch! (grabs the pipe tighter) Wow!
COOK. Help you get down?
PRINCESS. Nope! I'll sit here until I get what I want! Here!
COOK. What stubbornness!
PRINCESS. I want the moon! Y-s-s! I will cry and weep until I get what I want!
The princess is crying. Tears drip down the chimney.
SONG OF THE PRINCESS.
There is nothing more beautiful,
Than the moon's silver light.
Give me the moon soon,
I can't sleep without her!
I would put the moon under my pillow,
I would love Luna as a girlfriend.
I would talk to Luna.
So that the moon shines only for me alone!
If I cry all night,
Someone has to help.
Because this moon is
I really, really need it!
COOKER. Hey! Your tears are dripping right down my chimney!
PRINCESS. Well, let! I want the moon!
COOK. A bat flew by.
PRINCESS. Oh what a scary one! Who are you?
BAT. I am a child of the Night, I am a Bat! What are you crying about, girl?
PRINCESS. I want the moon, but I can't get it!
BAT. Perhaps I can't either. But I will fly and ask the Night. She will help you!
PRINCESS. I want the moon! Y-s-s! (sobs)
COOK. The princess wept until morning. When it was completely dawn, the Swallow, who lived under the roof, woke up.
MARTIN. What are you crying about, beautiful?
PRINCESS. I want the moon!
MARTIN. Hmm, personally I prefer the Sun. But anyway, I'll fly now and ask the Day, he will help you.
COOK. And the Swallow flew towards the Day. (Princess). Go home!
The princess shakes her head.
COOKER. Get down! The porridge is cold!
PRINCESS. I want the moon! I want the moon! I want the moon!
COOK. Just imagine what a commotion will be in the palace!
The cook sighs and, with a hopeless wave of her hand, leaves the Princess to sit on the chimney and shed tears.
COOKER. Meanwhile, in the palace, Nanny went to wake the king's daughter.
NANNY (coming to the princess's bed). Good morning, my bunny! Wake up, my darling, it's time to get up, my dear!..
Nanny throws back the blanket and does not find the Princess under it.
NANNY (shouts). Ah-ah-ah! Horror! Nightmare! Guard! Wake up everyone! His Majesty's daughter, our honey, our darling, our bunny... STOLEN!!! Anxiety! Anxiety! Ah-ah-ah!
The nanny rattles the dishes, hits the frying pan with a large scoop, as if into bottles.
NANNY. Ah-ah-ah! Your Majesty! Ah-ah-ah! Guard! Wake up, Your Majesty!
COOK. But, as you know, kings sleep soundly.
The king snores in his sleep.
NANNY (knocks the teapot with a ladle). Get up! Climb! Climb!
NURSE. Our princess... our darling, our honey, our bunny...
KING (jumps up). What?! What about our bunny? What about our darling?!
NANNY (in a loud voice). Stole!!! Last week, a silver spoon went missing from the royal service!
KING. What's with the spoon?
NURSE. Whoever stole the spoon stole the princess too! Surely this is the boy who cleans the silverware.
KING. Put the bastard in jail! General! General! Call the general here!
NANNY (shouting). Mr General! Here! Here! Trouble! Trouble!
GENERAL (minting a step). At-two! Take it easy, calm down! Called, Your Majesty?
KING. Guard! Trouble! Horror!
GENERAL. Horror? This is good!
NURSE. A terrible thing happened!
GENERAL (hopefully). War?
GENERAL. Worse? This is even better!
KING. Need to do something!
GENERAL. The main thing - do not panic! What's wrong? Report in full.
NURSE. Missing princess! It must have been stolen by that boy who cleans the silver. We need to arrest him and put him in jail!
GENERAL. Will be done! But first… I will order all the soldiers to go on vacation urgently.
NANNY and KING. Where??
GENERAL. Vacation for seven days.
KING. What for?
GENERAL. There's a big attack coming up. Let the soldiers say goodbye to their parents first. Just in case.
KING. But what about the boy?
GENERAL. The boy isn't going anywhere. The main thing here is not to rush. Let's wait until April 1st and start taking decisive action! And now it's time for me!
GENERAL. On vacation! I must gather strength before the decisive battle! (leaves.)
KING. What to do? What to do?
NURSE. Your Majesty! Order to call the detective! He will find our baby in no time.
KING. Call the chief royal detective here!
NURSE. Detective! Detective! Trouble! Guard!
DETECTIVE (has grown up, as if out of the ground). Quiet! I've been here for a long time.
KING. You see, our honey ...
DETECTIVE (nods). I know.
NURSE. Our darling…
DETECTIVE (interrupts). I know.
KING. Our hare…
DETECTIVE (shouts). I know!
KING (shouting). What do you know?!
KING. But where?
DETECTIVE. I overheard!
KING. Eavesdropped in the royal chambers?! How dare you?!
DETECTIVE. For your own safety! In such a situation, believe me, you can not trust anyone!
KING. Even you?
KING. Even me?
DETECTIVE. You especially!
KING. But what to do now?
DETECTIVE. Gotta get fingerprinted!
KING. Even mine?
DETECTIVE. You are the first person in the state, therefore, we will start with you!
KING. Flattered, flattered! Here are my thumbs up.
Suddenly there is a loud knock on the door.
COOKER. At that moment, there was a loud knock on the door of the royal chambers. (Knocking) Knock-knock-knock!
NURSE. Oh mothers!
KING. The thieves?!
DETECTIVE. What a suspicious knock!
COOK. The door opened and in came... the cook.
KING. Cook? What do you want, cook?
COOK. I'm resigning, your majesty!
KING. What's the news?
COOK. The stove does not burn, which means there is nothing for me to do here.
KING. Why isn't the stove on fire?
COOK. Because water. I wipe it and wipe it, and it keeps dripping and dripping from the chimney! The fire doesn't ignite. You can't cook dinner without a fire. So I'm retiring!
DETECTIVE. Leave your fingerprints first.
COOK. And it doesn't hurt?
KING. Not at all!
THE COOKER (left prints). Now can I go?
COOK. Resign! All the best!
NURSE. The cook has retired, and why am I worse? Your Majesty! I'll tell you what: since the princess is nowhere to be found, then I have nothing to do here either. I want to retire too!
NURSE. With pleasure! (leaves prints, leaves). Farewell!
COOKING The royal house is an example for all - and for the dukes. And for counts, and for bakers, and for peasants. The news of my resignation spread throughout the country, and immediately all the women of the kingdom stopped cooking!
(She addresses the princess sitting on the pipe). Look what's happening in our kingdom!
PRINCESS (stubbornly). I want the moon!
NIGHT. At this time, in the dark forest, Night wandered along the forest paths and put things in order there. The bat landed on her shoulder.
BAT. Mother Night! Listen, Mother Night!
NIGHT. What do you want, little one?
BAT. The king's daughter wants the moon from the sky!
NIGHT. moon? No, I can't do without the moon, so tell her.
BAT. But she cries so bitterly!
NIGHT. Why these whims? The place of the moon in the sky. Without a moon, the darkness of the night will become so impenetrable that all belated travelers will go astray. Without the moon, lovers and dreamers will have nothing to admire under the night sky. Without the Moon, poets will lose their source of inspiration. Don't you feel sorry for people?
BAT. Yes, but I feel even more sorry for the little princess, she really, really, really wants the moon!
NIGHT. Stupid! Just imagine what will happen in the world if all mothers give their children everything they decide to ask for. Give me one reason why I should give Luna to the king's daughter?
BAT. She has gray eyes, black hair and white skin!
NIGHT. Is this the reason? Do not fool me. I have so many things to do.
Night took off the bat from her shoulder and disappeared into the thicket of the forest.
An owl poked out of a hollow.
OWL. Are you saying the princess has gray eyes?
BAT. Gray as dusk!
A mouse peeked out of a mink.
MOUSE. Are you saying she has black hair?
BAT. Blacker than the night!
A moth perched on a leaf.
BUTTERFLY. Are you saying she has white skin?
BAT. Whiter than the light of the stars!
OWL. So she is our sister! And if she wants the moon, you have to give her the moon! The night is wrong!
BAT (flies over the forest and screams). Hey, children of the Night! Nightingale singers, gray mice, owls and moths! Listen to me! The night is wrong! The night is wrong! The night is wrong!
It became brighter, and still brighter, and the Day came.
DAY. So the bat screamed until dawn came. At dawn, the swallow fluttered out of her nest and flew towards the Day.
MARTIN. Good afternoon Day!
DAY. Hello early bird!
MARTIN. Day, you are so kind! Help the little princess, she is crying because she wants the moon from the sky!
DAY. What nonsense! Why should we give Luna to the girl?
MARTIN. Because she has blue eyes, golden hair and rosy cheeks.
DAY. See how rich she is! All this is enough for happiness. Why does she need the moon? You better fly about your business, my child. And I'll take mine.
A fish emerged from the lake.
FISH. Are you saying she has blue eyes?
MARTIN. Blue as the sky!
A camomile hung its head from a cliff.
CHAMOMILE. And golden hair?
MARTIN. Golden like the rays of the sun!
The seagull froze in the sky.
CHAYKA. And rosy cheeks?
MARTIN. Pink as dawn!
GULL. So he is our sister! And if she wants the moon, give her the moon! The day is wrong! Down with the day!
And all the children of the Day began to repeat: The day is wrong! Down with the day!
CHILDREN'S SONG OF NIGHT AND DAY.
Leaves rustled in the wind:
The day is wrong! And the night is wrong!
And the dry grass rustled:
The day is wrong! And the night is wrong!
Everyone curses Day and Night,
Everyone grumbles day and night.
This is how the Royal Daughter cooked the porridge!
And the owl repeated on the branch:
The day is wrong! And the night is wrong!
And the rumor spread through the forest:
The day is wrong! And the night is wrong!
SUN (peeping out from behind a cloud). Calm down kids! Let's wait until the first of April, and then we will decide who is right and who is not!
COOKING (to the Princess). The children of the Night and the children of the Day stopped listening to their parents. Do you see what kind of porridge you made?
PRINCESS (looked down at the kingdom and repeated, but not so confidently). I want the moon...
COOK. Meanwhile, the royal detective continued to search for the princess. Before he had time to go outside, he immediately saw the Tramp in rags, who was fast asleep on the grass under a tree.
DETECTIVE. In broad daylight, this tramp sleeps right under a tree! And besides, he is dressed in rags. From such a suspicious type, you can expect anything. Hey tramp!
The tramp mumbled something completely incomprehensible in response.
DETECTIVE (shouting in his ear). Where is the royal daughter? Answer where!?
TRAMP. First lane to the right, second to the left.
And the Tramp began to snore again. And the detective rushed into the alley.
DETECTIVE. Ta-a-k! Now to the right! Second alley - to the left! What's this? (reads the sign) Zucchini "Pig's head"!
COOK. In a tavern, 19 cheerful sailors sat at a long table, they raised their mugs, sang songs and swayed back and forth like a ship on the waves.
SAILORS. Sea, sea, bottomless world!
Sea, sea!... Hey, Mistress! Pour some more into our mugs!
DETECTIVE. Well, answer me, where is the royal daughter !?
SAILOR. What kind of daughter?
MISTRESS. Somewhere there is, but not here!
The sailors burst out laughing and began to sing, swaying: “There is somewhere, but not here!”
DETECTIVE. Oh, you will still deny! Oh, you will still laugh! Hands up!
COOK. And the Detective arrested the Mistress, and with her 19cheerful sailors, and on the way to the palace, for greater peace of mind, he also arrested the Tramp, who was sleeping on the grass under a tree. And brought them all to the King.
KING. Who are they?
DETECTIVE. Suspicious persons, Your Majesty! The tramp said that they have the princess, and they deny it. So one of them is lying.
KING. All suspicious persons - to prison! And if before the First of April they do not prove that they are not guilty of anything, we will punish them severely. And we will reward the Detective!
DETECTIVE (to the sailors). Hands up! March to prison! (to the King). Would you like to continue searching?
COOK. The detective again went in search of the princess and suddenly heard very suspicious sounds.
A baby cries “Wah! Whoa! Whoa!
DETECTIVE. I have never heard anything more suspicious in my life...
COOK. Near the store there was a stroller in which a baby was crying.
DETECTIVE. Why is he crying? He knows something! (to baby) What do you know? Answer!
DETECTIVE. Knows everything, but hides! What's up here huh?
DETECTIVE. Don't talk to me, tell me where the royal daughter is!
BABY (crying). Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!
COOK. A young mother ran out of the store.
MOTHER (bent over the baby). Ooty-pusi-musi! Who offended my klyosechka? The bad uncle offended my dome! Why did you frighten the child, you scoundrel?
DETECTIVE. What were you doing in the store?
MOTHER. What do you care!?
DETECTIVE. You bought a piece of cloth there, why? Answer!
MOTHER. Hm! This is not a man's job!
DETECTIVE. Ah well! Then I will have to arrest you and your child, as well as all the buyers and sellers in the store! Hands up! Forward! To jail!
COOK. And the detective put a mother with a child, 43 saleswomen and 118 buyers in jail!
Drum rolls. You can hear someone minting a step.
JOHNNY (instructs himself, beating time with drumsticks). At-two! Pam-parabam! Left! Right! There-chatter!
COOK. This is a soldier of the royal army - drummer Johnny Jenkinson hurries to his home to say goodbye to his mother before the offensive.
JOHNNY (knocking on the window). Pam-parabam! Ram-ram! Open! Tram-ta-there!
MOTHER. Is it you, Johnny? Are you?!
JOHNNY. Of course I am, ma!
MOTHER. Father! Come here! Johnny is back!
FATHER. And we thought you were in distant lands!
JOHNNY. All the soldiers got seven days' leave, pa!
FATHER. Why all of a sudden?
JOHNNY. Something is coming... Pam-parab!.. Ram-ram!..
FATHER. Is it a war?
JOHNNY. What else, pa!
MOTHER. Who is the war with, Johnny?
JOHNNY. Some say it will be a war with the king of the north. Others, that with the South. And personally, I think that ... Pam-parabum! .. Ram-ram! .. Tram-ta-tam! MOTHER. Really and with that and with another?!
FATHER. With two at once?!
MOTHER. Here's an attack!
JOHNNY. Count on us, ma! It would be better for us to fill our bellies, and then we will defeat any enemy! So what are we having for dinner tonight, ma?
MOTHER. Nothing, Johnny!
JOHNNY. What are you, ma?
MOTHER. The royal cook resigned, and after her, all the other women in the kingdom stopped cooking. I can't get behind them.
JOHNNY (sadly). Tram-ta-there ... So, then the vacation is ruined. No, you have no idea what food means to a soldier when he comes on leave.
FATHER. Not just for a soldier, son. And not only on vacation… Eh…
JOHNNY. What to do now, pa?
FATHER. Let's go to the pub, son!
COOK. Soon all the taverns all over the country were filled with hungry men. One thousand two hundred and fifteen angry men were sitting in the taverns, banging their spoons on the tables and repeating: “Where is breakfast? Where is lunch? Where is dinner?
HUNGRY MEN. Where is breakfast? Where is lunch? Where is dinner?
The men chant, Johnny beats them on the drum.
JOHNNY. Like this! Pam-parabam! More friendly! Even louder! We won't work until we get food!
HUNGRY MEN. Where is breakfast? Where is lunch? Where is dinner?
COOK. And all the arrested people in the prison began to knock on the bars and demand that they be released.
ARRESTS. We are not to blame for anything! We are not to blame for anything!
COOK. The Children of the Day and the Children of the Night also began to scream.
CHILDREN OF THE LIGHT. Down with the day!
CHILDREN OF DARKNESS. The night is wrong!
COOK. The sun has set in the east. The dogs meowed like cats. The stars descended from the sky and began to walk on the earth. The wind blew upwards. The rooster instead of "crowing" shouted "I-ho-ho." The moon rose above the earth, but with a fright turned to everyone with its reverse black side!
SONG "DOOMS OF LIGHT".
Wives don't cook dinner, husbands don't work.
The general went on vacation, does not shoot a gun.
The king himself fell off the throne, the crown slid to its side.
This is without a doubt a doomsday!
Either evening or day -
What are these miracles?
Either a cloud or a shadow
Covered the sky!
Dogs mewed, cats barked and growled.
And hungry soldiers knock with ladles.
The sun disappeared, and the moon suddenly became black-black.
This is without a doubt a doomsday!
Ringing, roaring, screaming, whistling, meowing, grunting, dog barking… And silence.
KING (stunned). That's the first of April! Yes, this is a real doomsday!
Meanwhile, the princess descended from the roof and ran up to the king.
PRINCESS. Dad! Daddy! I'm here!
KING. Daughter! Where did you disappear to?
PRINCESS. I was sitting on the chimney, pa.
KING. Why were you sitting on the chimney, my little one?
PRINCESS. I wanted to get Luna.
PRINCESS. I just don't like her anymore. I thought it was all silver, but on the other hand it is black!
Nanny came running.
NANNY. We found our baby, our honey, our hare! So, no need to arrest a boy who cleans silver!
KING. No one needs to be arrested because no one stole the princess! I order everyone to be released!
COOK. The doors of the prison flung open and the following went out to freedom: the Tramp, the Mistress of the tavern, 19 cheerful sailors, a mother with a baby, 43 saleswomen and 118 buyers ... In a word, everything.
NANNY (to the princess). Let me hug you, my honey, my baby ... Oh! Yes, your shirt got wet! What were you doing?
