With enormous thanks to Dave Nolder for collating and reformatting the songs, here is BURP complete and indexed updated as of 28/12/2018
Note that it includes some songs from previous editions which are now officially obsolete. These are clearly indicated. So if you request one such during the thrash, you may be disappointed that we can't do it out of respect to those who are using the paper editions (and/or those who don't want to hear the train wreck that is likely to ensue!)
