Request for music editting favor

OK guys, Mrs Jono has a favour to ask you all via yours truly...

Mrs Jono is an primary (elementary) school teacher and her class are going to do a "Leaving Assembly" for all the children who are leaving the school to go to the next school up.

At this assembly the children want to sing Paul McCartney's "We all stand together" aka "The Frog Chorus". BUT... Due to the length of the song they need an editted verion that's shorter to fit it into the time they're allowed. We don't have any software that will let us edit an MP3 file so what I'd like to ask is if anyone could prepare me an editted version that cuts out everything from 1'32" to 3'51"?

I know it's quite a big ask and possibly quasi legal (although we did buy the song off iTunes!!!) but any help of advice would be gratfully received.

Thanks in advance guys.
Jono

If you can be arsed, just download Audacity (free) and drag the mp3 into it and it should be no biggee. If you can't get hold of Dee, shoot me the mp3 via yousendit.com, and pm me for my email address.

Really?

Jono -- check your email or PM's on here. Whichever version you use it's OK with me, it only took about 5 minutes to edit.

Re: Request for music editting favor

Hi guys,

I've sent emails to a couple of you to say thanks for doing this

They sound great and are practically the same. Apologies if any deception was perceived, Mrs Jono needed this doing urgently and I've literally just got back from a business trip to Switzerland so didn't have time to be more honourable about things. In truth I thought this would be a much bigger job than you guys made it and you might not have been able to do it straight away, so again, thanks.

No worries, Jono, I figured you were probably busy. Hope all goes well for the kids and Mrs. Jono.
