Sing out loud

My earlier blog today was unoriginal and bleak.

I cast about for a happier note and was rewarded with a memory of The Happy Wanderer

We were taught it at Primary School and it filled us with glee, especially as we exaggerated the faldera ah-ha-ha-ha-ha bit, every time.

Our little gang sang it when we played pirates in our wonderful pirate ship HMS Avocado Tree

One thought on “Sing out loud”

  1. Hi Malachy,
    Yes, your earlier blog left me reaching for my 1 litre bottle of 80% proof “vodka” expertly distilled in a corner of the garage (another corner has a beer still and I can’t reveal the contents of the other 2 corners), but then I found myself searching for my cutlass and eye patch and bellowing out faldera ah-ha-ha-ha-ha, so good order has been restored and any potential hangover has been replaced by a reflection of happy memories.
    Best wishes from Oxfordshire
    Paul Groves
