I should have said to you all , although Vin's is the best Version I've heard - please remember others who contributed to the song being widely sang , The first - Tony Capstick who sadly died last week, and two fine performers Gary and Vera Aspey who always gave the Chorus "Rock All" whenever they sang it.
I've also got an LP of Arthur Johnson singing it but I think he gave it too much reverence. I think the song is more of a play thing and that the more fun you put into singing it the more fun you (and hopefully the audience ) get from it.
Why are the l's upside down on this Site ? ( When I type the message )- confusing for a duffer like me !!!
