I was born in the wrong century

Remember when it came out - I was about eight...

All the older boys on the bus used to sing it while we looked on in awe!

You were, Beast. Someone could have made some good money out of you.

Scrobs, I thought you might remember this one. I only heard it recently. The the older boys click their fingers while they sang?

My son recently started playing the Tennessee Waltz on the Yamaha. When I started to sing along he stopped and looked at me with surprise written all over his face.

"How do you know this tune?" he asked.

He was a bit non-plussed when I told him I was dancing to it in the 1950s..

I shall refrain from mentioning much the same about T E Ford Esq! Click...

Those were the days eh, Nomad? :-)
It's funny how one can inadvertently impress the kids...Calfy's friend was thrilled when I gave him my Smiths posters :-)

Electro-Kevin said...

That was nice.

Mmmm.

Scrobs... said...

Yes, they did click their fingers Lils!

And the hair flopped forward, the sheep eyes glowed and the girls' shoulders shook!

(and Scrobs wriggled around like the ten-year-old he was then...)

Trubes said...

I remember that Lils, my sister who is eight years older than me used to play it all the time on her shaky delta record player... He he, I remember peeping through the window at the back of the house watching them on the settee engage in the most energetic snogging I've ever seen!

Hope you all down 'thayer', are well, and a belated 'Happy New Year.
