      Hi peejay407,

      Thank you for your resource suggestion on the Twinkl website.

      I've passed your request on to our design team to see if they can make an editable version of this for you, so you can add your own songs. If we're able to make this for you we'll be in touch shortly to let you know.

      I hope you have a lovely day! : )
