I haven’t had much luck transcribing much of it, but I did find a lead sheet. Want to add to the discussion?

Hey whoever gilded me, thanks! I will first go over the obvious mistakes, and then lead you in the direction of renaming, or interpreting the changes in a way that makes sense to voice and blow over.
