picture this ...
last morning of class
the last of the small metals groups
gathered in the wonderful workshop space provided by our hosts in Lud Valley
[ an actual building purpose built for building stuff !!!! ]
and someone is tapping with a rivetting hammer
and i hear the rhythm to this tune in my mind
i 'm on my way from dadad dadada todaaaay
uhuh uhuh uhuh uhuh uhuuuuuuuh
i say ..what is that?
you know ?
Sarah says ...yes from the 90's ?
the Proclaimers ! i say
yes ! says sarah . aren't they brothers or twins ?
out comes the iphone
yep twins !
bit of joint singing ensues ...
[ i love it when music closes the gap between age and size and viewpoints and what you like for breakfast ]
there are lots of dadadadada
what are all those words ?
arriving home some days later and this song is still there
and i go in search
and find this cool original video
those gorgeous accents
and those elusive lyrics
great bouncy upbeat tune
and i am on my way
and half way through
2 more wonderful classes ahead to share with India Flint
Bower Bird Blues take 3
and Retreat to Tin Can Bay
now i do not think that is a song
or is it ?
