The only song I remember vividly from my childhood is Tears by Ken Dodd
My father always sang this song to me when I was with the family at Christmas and other occasions. Another song I recall is JAKE THE PAKE

I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.

Snowy,

I loved that Tommy Steel one too and his one about stick it in the family album! My first one was "I'm a little teapot" and then we used to do tiller girls "Over my shoulder goes one care" or the Christmas alphabet "C is for the candy trimmed around the christmas tree". My mother fancied herself as a Ginger Rodgers so we staged huge productions in our big old kitchen..all children and relations from far and near. We hadn't got the telly then and we had loads of old song books from the 30's so we knew the corniest lyrics, "There ll be bluebirds over the White cliffs of Dover"

I remember my mother used to sing Puff the Magic Dragon for me and also liked This Old Man, he played one.... My mother was and still is a good singer and my father used to sing King of the Road as his party piece. In my grandmothers house there was always lots of sing songs, everyone seemed to have a party piece, my Granny's song was Jealous Heart. Now all together,
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee,
Little Jackie paper loved that rascal puff,
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff. oh

La la la la la la....

I use to be sat on my Mothers knee
at the upstairs window

Clap hands Clap hands till Joey (Brother) comes home ect.

I use to be awe of wonder that every time we did it
My brother Joe would appear walking up the road

Yet when I would go upstairs and do it on my own (Nothing scry )
Till I twigged later in life me Ma could see him getting off the Bus

Dancer,

That is too harsh on Johndle johndllle When we were all young and innocent we probably all looked like Gobshites but we had to learn somewhere.

We must have looked like proper thicks when as tiny children we came from behind the heavy curtains in the front room to perform for all the seated guests, but, it taught us social skills and built our character for the tough days ahead.

I remember learning how to whistle and singing that song "whistle a happy tune" from the King and I and learning how to yodle and singing the yodeling song!! painful stuff for the listeners

I cant remember when I heard this song for the first time, probably one of my older sisters had the record or taught me it ( we used to have little variety shows in our bedroom at night, one would sing or dance or whatever while one of the others held a lamp on them like a spotlight) Ah great times and so innocent 8-) I usually sing it in the Karaoke bars when on Holiday's, and still love it to this day. I have to say I dont sound anything like this as I'm sure Farmboy could tell you all (a bag of cats comes to mind.)
