Please do not tell me that Cherie Blair singing the Beatles' song "When I'm Sixty-four" is a new trend in music. Shocked

I've heard frogs (no pun intended, Cherie)that were more melodic.
I certainly am glad the clapping was loud.

What other trendy things can we expect in the music business? Laughing

Letty,

How about maggie thatcher singing (to the tune of bobby goldsboro's song)

honey I miss you and I'm being good
and I'd love to be near you if only I could

If she ever does seriously want to be with him all she has to do is take a trip to Newcastle on Tyne her wish will be instantly granted.

Hi Letty,

It was me who didn't see the obvious joke about reagan- I thought your question was a serious one.

Hmmmm, feola. Let's see if we can figure this out. Denis was Maggie's hubby who recently died--A bobby is a British cop--Newcastle is where everyone carries coals.

I got it! A new music genre! Hoppin' with the Bobbies in New castle rock. Laughing

How about Maggie & Ronnie rapping & dancing to The Lanbeth Walk. Right in London's East End. Dig those Cockney vibes


HELLO
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
I`M DANCING
THE FOXTROT, THE POLKA?
NO, NO I`M DANCING THE LAMBETH WALK
WHAT?
THE LAMBETH WALK

One day with time to spare
In grand ma`s home I climbed the stair
I reached the attic at the top
Oh what a site I had to stop

Books pictures junk galore
It looked just like a jumble store
Lot`s of records everywhere
Wish they could play them there

Then with grand ma in a dream
I was on the thirties` scene
There was her own
Hold down the gramophone

Turned the handle heard it play
All the songs of yesterday
Charleston and waltz
Rumba and swing of course, hey
But top of all the back there
High up the Union Jack there
Making you want to sing God save the King

Learn the lyrics, learn the tune
Start the dancing round the room
Old that`s the new doing the Lambeth Walk, hey
It was a big sensation
Just like a celebration
You`ll either sing or talk it

Lambeth Walk it
Anytime you`ll Lambeth way
Any evening any day
You`ll find us all doing the Lambeth Walk, hey
Every little Lambeth Gal
With her little Lambeth Pal
You`ll find them all doing the Lambeth Walk, hey

Everything free and easy
Do as you darn well pleasy
Why don`t you make your way there
Go there stay there
Once you get down Lambeth way
Every evening every day
You`ll find yourself doing the Lambeth Walk, hey
Once you get down Lambeth way

Every evening every day
You`ll find yourself doing the Lambeth Walk

Hey, Oakman. Ain't it too darn hot for you guys to be dancin'?
And for the heads of state and all who dance to the tune of Tony and Cherie; Maggie and Ronnie;

Artist: Paul westerberg
Song: Sunshine

Sunshine go away today
Don't feel much like dancing
Some man's gone he's trying to run my life
Don't know what he's asking

He tells me I better get in line
I can't hear what he's saying
When I grow up I'm gonna make him mine
Please help dude I'm in pain

How much does it cost?
I'll buy it
The time is all we lost
I'll try it

He can't even run his own life
Be damned if he'll run mine
Sunshine

Sunshine go away today
I don't feel much like dancing
Some man's gone he's trying to run my life
Don't know what he's asking
When working starts to make me wonder to wear
The feats are what I do, I'm going
He says in love and war all is fair
He's got cards he ain't showing

How much does it cost?
I'll buy it
The time is all we lost
I'll try it

He can't even run his own life
Be damned if he'll run mine
Sunshine
Sunshine go away today
I can't feel much like singing
And this old world, she's gonna turn around
The brand new bells will be a-ringing

Did you write those lyrics, John Oak? Great!

UhOh, Oakman. Guess George and Tony and Laura and Cherie may be in the same shape:

When You're Hot You're Hot
by Jerry Reed

Well me and Homer Jones and Big John Talley
Had a big crap game goin' back in the alley
And I kept rollin' them sevens, winnin' all them pots
My luck was so good I could do no wrong
I jest kept on rollin' and controllin' them bones
And finally they jest threw up their hands and said
"When you hot, you hot"
I said "Yeah?"

When you're hot, you're hot
And when you're not, you're not
Put all the money in and let's roll 'em again
When you're hot, you're hot
(La la la la la la la) (La la la la la)
(La la la la la la la, when you're hot, you're hot)

Well, now every time I rolled them dice I'd win
And I was just gettin' ready to roll 'em again
When I heard somethin' behind me
I turned around and there was a big old cop
He said "Hello, boys" and then he gave us a grin 'n' said
"Look like I'm gonna hafta haul you all in
And keep all that money for evidence"
I said, "Well, son when you hot, you hot"
He said "Yeah"

When you're hot, you're hot
And when you're not, you're not
You can 'splain it all down at City Hall
I say, yeah, when you're hot, you're hot
You're hot
(La la la la la la la) (La la la la la)
(La la la la la la la, when you're hot, you're hot)

Well, when he took us inta court I couldn't believe my eyes
The judge was a fishin' buddy that I recognized
I said "Hey, judge, old buddy, old pal"
"I'll pay ya that hundred I owe ya if you'll get me outta this spot"
So he gave my friends a little fine to pay
He turned around and grinned at me and said
"Ninety days, Jerry, when you hot, you hot"
'N' I said "Thanks a lot"

When you're hot, you're hot
And when you're not, you're not
He let my friends go free and throwed the book at me
He said "Well, when you're hot, you're hot"

I said, "Well I'll tell ya one thing judge, old buddy, old pal
If you wasn't wearin' that black robe I'd take out in back of this courthouse
And I'd try a little bit of your honor on
You understand that, you hillbilly?
Who gonna collect my welfare?"
(When you're hot, you're hot)
"Pay for my Cadillac?
Whadda you mean 'contempt of court'?"
(When you're hot, you're hot)
"Judge"
"O Judge!"

Letty, funny you mention nuclear plants. They are considered hi risk security sites. so they have all the latest goon/spooks detection devices to stop break ins. So imagine my surprise when I was told that an S.A.S unit from the Brit Army broke in unseen, entered the control room and took over the place. Concentrates the mind even in meltdown.
