O we had such a fun event at Compton Verney last night and once again we were a triumph!

As usual we are treated with a little caution on meeting new people but by the end of the evening they have cracked and cracked good.

Even the BIG BOSS Steven Parsnip was happy to have his picture taken with us..He sang a great rendition of Delilah we were well impressed and joined in the chorus  la la la la la la la la  ing.

 Delilah

O’Riordan, Mary Dolores, Noel Hogan

I saw the light on the night that I passed by her window
I saw the flickering shadows of love on her blind
She was my woman
As she decieved me I watched and went out of my mind
My, my, my, Delilah
Why, why, why, Delilah
I could see that girl was no good for me
But I was lost like a slave that no man could free
At break of day when that man drove away, I was waiting
I cross the street to her house and she opened the door
She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more
My, my, my Delilah
Why, why, why Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn’t take any more
(insert trumpet solo here)
She stood there laughing
I felt the knife in my hand and she laughed no more
My, my, my, Delilah
Why, why, why, Delilah
So before they come to break down the door
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn’t take any more
Forgive me Delilah I just couldn’t take any more

Christine Clooney did Diamonds are a girls best friend.

She was great and did all the Marilyn moves and voice overs.

Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend

Jule Styne  Leo Robin

The French are glad to die for love.
They delight in fighting duels.
But I prefer a man who lives
And gives expensive jewels.

A kiss on the hand
May be quite continental,
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

A kiss may be grand
But it won’t pay the rental
On your humble flat
Or help you at the automat.

Men grow cold
As girls grow old,
And we all lose our charms in the end.

But square-cut or pear-shaped,
These rocks don’t lose their shape.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Tiffany’s!
Cartier!
Black Starr!
Frost Gorham!
Talk to me Harry Winston.
Tell me all about it!

There may come a time
When a lass needs a lawyer,
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

There may come a time
When a hard-boiled employer
Thinks you’re awful nice,
But get that ice or else no dice.

He’s your guy
When stocks are high,
But beware when they start to descend.

It’s then that those louses
Go back to their spouses.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

I’ve heard of affairs
That are strictly platonic,
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

And I think affairs
That you must keep liaisonic
Are better bets
If little pets get big baguettes.

Time rolls on,
And youth is gone,
And you can’t straighten up when you bend.

But stiff back
Or stiff knees,
You stand straight at Tiffany’s.

Diamonds!  Diamonds!
I don’t mean rhinestones!
But diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Dave Jones this time without his gold medallion and Elvis Glasses did Blue Christmas the Elvis special.

Blue Christmas

Billy Hayes  and Jay Johnson

Ill have a blue christmas without you
Ill be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green christmas tree
Wont be the same dear, if you’re not here with me
And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
Youll be doin all right, with your christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue christmas
Youll be doin all right, with your christmas of white,
But I’ll have a blue, blue christmas.

The girls did fine rendition of White Christmas’

White Christmas

Irving Berlin

The sun is shining, the grass is green
The orange and palm trees sway
There’s never been such a day
In Beverly Hills, L.A.

But it’s December the 24th
And I’m longing to be up North…

I’m dreaming of a white christmas,
just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
to hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white christmas,
just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
to hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white christmas,
with every christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright,
and may all your christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white christmas,
just like the ones I used to know
May your days be merry and bright,
and may all your christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white christmas,
with every christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright,
and may all your christmases be white

May your days be merry and bright,
and may all your christmases be white.

John and Yoko

Happy Xmas Yoko
Happy Xmas John

So this is Xmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Xmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas (war is over)
For weak and for strong (if you want it)
For rich and the poor ones (war is over)
The world is so wrong (if you want it)
And so happy Xmas (war is over)
For black and for white (if you want it)
For yellow and red ones (war is over)
Let’s stop all the fight (now)

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Xmas (war is over)
And what have we done (if you want it)
Another year over (war is over)
A new one just begun (if you want it)
And so happy Xmas (war is over)
We hope you have fun (if you want it)
The near and the dear one (war is over)
The old and the young (now)

A very Merry Xmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

War is over, if you want it
War is over now

Happy Xmas

And as for the end of the world?

We would have sung this had we been asked!

99 Red Balloons

Uwe Fahrenkrog-Petersen

Have you some time for me,
then I’ll sing a song for you
about 99 balloons
on their way to the horizon.
If you’re perhaps thinking about me right now
then I’ll sing a song for you
about 99 balloons
and that such a thing comes from such a thing.

99 balloons
on their way to the horizon
People think they’re UFO’s from space
so a general sent up
a fighter squadron after them
Sound the alarm if it’s so
but there on the horizon were
only 99 balloons.

99 fighter jets
Each one’s a great warrior
Thought they were Captain Kirk
then came a lot of fireworks
the neighbors didn’t understand anything
and felt like they were being provoked
so they shot at the horizon
at 99 balloons.

99 war ministers
matches and gasoline canisters
They thought they were clever people
already smelled a nice bounty
Called for war and wanted power.
Man, who would’ve thought
that things would someday go so far
because of 99 balloons.

99 years of war
left no room for victors.
There are no more war ministers
nor any jet fighters.
Today I’m making my rounds
see the world lying in ruins.
I found a balloon,
think of you and let it fly (away).
