Another trip to the 70’s

This so sad, a man dying from a broken heart,

 

 

and we all know what this one is about

Who hasn’t felt like this

Then there were theses. Well it is known as the decade that taste forgot, but we needed the silliness what with the strikes/power cuts/ water shortages/ the IRA bombings/cold war/high unemployment and the heatwave.

So join in with some silliness.

and lets not forget the B side, remember A and B sides?

OK so you will need a little knowledge of 70’s music to understand these Parodies,

I know all the words to this…I am not to sure I should be boasting about it

1970’s and a hat

All around my hat I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I’m wearing it
It’s all for my true love who’s far, far away

Fare thee well cold winter and fare thee well cold frost
Nothing have I gained but my own true love I’ve lost
I’ll sing and I’ll be merry when occasion I do see
He’s a false deluding young man, let him go, farewell he

The other night he brought me a fine diamond ring
But he thought to have deprived me of a far better thing
But I being careful like lovers ought to be
He’s a false deluding young man, let him go, farewell he and

All around my hat I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I’m wearing it
It’s all for my true love who’s far, far away

It’s a quarter pound of reasons and a half a pound of sense
A small sprig of time and as much of prudence
You mix them all together and you will plainly see
He’s a false deluding young man, let him go, farewell he and

All around my hat I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I’m wearing it
It’s all for my true love who’s far, far away

All around my hat I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I’m wearing it
It’s all for my true love who’s far, far away

All around my hat I will wear the green willow
And all around my hat for a twelve month and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason why I’m wearing it
It’s all for my true love who’s far, far away

The song “All Around my Hat” is of nineteenth-century English origin. In an early version, dating from the 1820’s, a costermonger  vowed to be true to his fiancée, who had been sentenced to seven years transportation to Australia for theft. To mourn the loss of her he  wore green willow sprigs in his hatband for “a twelve-month and a day,” in a traditional symbol of mourning.
