Since I'm American, I sang it the American way, that is, the way we pronounce H, Z, and omitting the "and" between U and V.

As for my pitch, I'm not trained in singing or anything.

I think 'Z' is the only major difference between British and American English.

Yeah, please omit the 'and' between U and V. It sounds better and I think that's how it's normally sung anyway.

Thanks for the recording David, you have a great singing voice.

Thanks for the compliment.

It's a subtle difference, but European English speakers tend to say "haytch" whereas American English speakers just say "aytch." It's like how we don't pronounce the "h" in "herb."

Come on people, don't be shy. It would be nice to hear the alphabet song sung in different accents.

Hehe, nobody here in Scots saying "haytch", apart from some English 'settlers' and I think it's only from some parts of England, like London.
You may notice I say "jigh", not "jay" - both are quite acceptable up here in Scotland. I'm not sure, but I think "jigh" is probably more popular here.

Oops, that should read "in Scotland".

As children, we always ran "l-m-n-o-" together as one word "elemeno" so I had done that here. Also, although Australians pronounce "z" as "zed", we always sung "z" here as "zee" because of the requirements of the rhyme.
