Indeed,yes jimmys velvet tones combined with the emotional lyrics certainly pulled at the heartstrings:lol:

 

Too true Gaz, too true.

 

I always wondered what the following lyrics meant as well, what message were they trying to convey?

 

"..Sheena is, a punk rocker, Sheena is, a punk rocker, Sheena is, a punk rocker now.

 

Well she's a punk, punk, a punk rocker, punk, punk, a punk rocker, ooo a punk, punk, punk rocker, punk, punk. a punk rocker...."

 

It's haunted me since 1977.......

If you really want to throw up try this :

 

My little girl came up to me in the kitchen this evenin'

While I was fixing supper

And she handed me a piece of paper she'd been writin' on

And after wipin' my hands on my apron I read it, and this is what it said

 

For mowin' the yard, five dollars

For makin' my own bed this week, one dollar

Goin' to the store, fifty cents

Playin' with little sister while you went to the store, twenty-five cents

 

Takin' out the trash, one dollar

Gettin' a good report card, five dollars

And for rakin' the yard, two dollars

Total owed, fourteen dollars and seventy-five cents

 

Well, I looked at her standin' there expectantly

And a thousand memories flashed through my mind

And so I picked up the pen, and turnin' the paper over

This is what I wrote

 

For the nine months I've carried you growin' inside me, no charge

For the nights I've sat up with you, doctored you, prayed for you, no charge

For the ties, folding clothes and for wipin' your nose, there's no charge

When you add it all up, the full cost of my love is, no charge

 

Well, when she finished readin' she had great big old tears in her eyes

And she looked up at me and said, "Mommy, I sure do love you"

Then she took the pen and in great big letters she wrote, 'Paid in full'

When you add it all up, the cost of real love is, no charge

The Pogues-Rainy night in Soho

Broad Magestic Shannon

Fairytale of New York

The old main drag

Pele - Green Fields of France

Johnny Cash-Hurt

John Shuttleworth-I can't go back to savoury now

 

Without wanting to, but failing, sound pedantic, Hurt is actually a Nine Inch Nails song, so Cash can't be credited with writing them.

 

However, it is a damn fine cover! :-)

Honey, I miss you!

Even YouTube ridding itself of the video can't begin to mask the horror that is that song. Excellent emetic though.
