A 32 second youtube video, some might enjoy.
Dora's Song- Time Enough for Love, Robert Heinlein
(There's a pawnshop on the corner melody)
The pawnshop on the corner melody's unknown to me. It's not my intention
to antagonize any alumni or others of UCB present in our little group,
Well, certainly on my part, I'm sure not 'antagonized'.
I'm willing to hear anyone's thoughts on the proper tunes.
Actually, I'm not sure how often Heinlein had a particular
tune in mind.
(later, if bored, or encouraged, I'll provide some other
youtube versions of his songs.)
Anyway, do you read music?
Because if you have "Time Enough For Love", right after
the table of contents, is shows 7 lines of written music.
Shucks, I thought I had a short cut workaround.
It has a "look inside" feature, but that has all
the words, but not the lines of music.
All seven of those pieces are in C major, the easiest key for pianists
to play because you only need to use the white keys. The melodies never
stray from a C major chord, which is almost as easy to play as the "One
Note Samba." The sixth tune is the first four measures of "Taps." 
The first tune sounds similar to "Reveille." The last bar of the third
tune is the first bar of "Bolero"  transposed to C major.
None of the seven songs sound similar to "Pawnshop on the Corner." Does
"Dora's Song" actually appear in the novel, or did the Youtube lassie
write her own lyrics?
