This is supposed to be "My Bonnie lies over the ocean".  It is a little off, but I am kind of a tin ear.  So I thought that maybe some one else would like to play with it and maybe create a few short songs.

SUB endbeep()
BEEP(392,190)
BEEP(659,190)
BEEP(587,190)
BEEP(523,190)
BEEP(587,190)
BEEP(523,190)
BEEP(440,190)
BEEP(392,190)
BEEP(330,660)
BEEP(392,190)
BEEP(659,190)
BEEP(587,190)
BEEP(523,190)
BEEP(523,190)
BEEP(494,190)
BEEP(523,190)
BEEP(587,660)
RETURN
ENDSUB

Here is what I started from:

' dwFreq - frequency in hertz
' dwDuration - duration in milliseconds
Declare "kernel32.dll",Beep(dwFreq As int,  dwDuration As int),int
beep(600,50)

/*  play Bonnie with Beep

Frequency is any literal or variable value from 37 to 32767, but 0 is allowed for delays.
Duration is any literal or variable number of TIMER ticks with a duration of 1/18th second. 18 = one second.

Note: I don't think that 18 is 1 second, 190 seems to work better for me.

Maybe some one more musically inclined than me can come up with more?

Enjoy,

When all else fails, get a bigger hammer.

Sounds good to me, Bill - I even recognised the tune!

Attached a CONSOLE version for anyone wishing to try it

Found a few songs (a few I don't recognize).

Enjoy,

There were some stinkers in there, Bill. Thought I was good on music, but they defeated me. Tidied it up a little for you
