Some newer editions may already have these corrections.

  • m.32, the crescendo should come on the previous eighth note, on the words "They don't."
  • m. 49, take a little time
  • m. 53, the tempo marking should read "slightly slower," and this newer tempo carries through the next two measures, then the poco rit. starts as written.
