Isn't it funny when you've been listening to song for years and think you know it really well only to realise you've been singing the words wrong all along!? I always thought IA was singing In the shuffling madness, of locomotive breath etc etc......but no! You can pick out the real lyrics much more clearly on this version
Thanks for finding that Nonrabbit, been looking for it for awhile, my mate Alan is now constantly taunted by it, in a pub the other night, someone called out to him only to have half the pub shouting Steve, Steve, Steve in unison
"Do you ever get the feeling that the story's too damn real and in the present tense?"
Ah, the joys of childhood...I'll always cherish the memory of some bigger boy on the playground trying to explain to me, colpete with stick drawings in the sand, what was naughty, and therefore funny and admirable, about Tiny Tim's dent in the top 40 charts 'Tiptoe thru the Tulips'.
Jings, Crivvens , Help Ma Boab! I hope that lad didn't grow up to be Ian Anderson ;D BTW, if you watch the rest of the video The King Brother's are on after the wee Edinburgh lad. That really makes me feel old as I saw them at Blackpool when I was a wee lad But as this is the Funniest Video's thread, watch the lady in the striped blouse at 5min 27sec. Well, she made me laugh ;D
And who comes here to wish me well? A sweetly-scented angel fell, She laid her head upon my disbelief, And bathed me with her ever-smile.

futureshock: After we hear COVID19 vaccine is looking good in Phase 3 trials + long before we know when it's to be available, I'd just like to say that coffee is a wonderful thing in the morning. With a dash of baking soda, coconut, maybe ginger,clove, what else?

geostrehl: TullTapes uploaded a video about 4 days ago of a London show in 78 with Tony Williams on bass. I took the link and emailed it to Tony. He was very happy. He had never seen that footage before. That must be cool. Imagine seeing yourself 42 years later!

steelmonkey: I have had 100% confidence, since day one, that my immune system will spare me Corona...so I get the vaccine tomorrow. No logic. My mployers ( hospital) say I have to roll up my sleeve. I wonder if I can let Ian have mine?

steelmonkey: If I am 'entitled' by my work, to place in shot line, I should be entitled to assign it.

jackinthegreen: Your immune system may protect you........but if you get it, will it protect the people you are looking after........

steelmonkey: If I get it, my immune system has failed me and I would not expose other people. The shot made me smarter, stronger and humbler.

steelmonkey: Corona in California is like the blind men and the elephant...everyone makes up their own safety criteria and believes themselves. Its getting more and more bizarre and less scientific.

steelmonkey: Merry Christmas from a California Psychiatric Facility. I have spent the last 15 Christmases in the psych ward...this must go on my permanent record. Good thing I still carry a key and get paychecks.
