steady and true wus they???

Ho Ho Ho

bleedin' bells' bleedin' bells clanging all the day
We were drinking late last night and now we want a lay -in
Bleedin bells, bleedin' bells wish they'ld go away
Didnt get to sleep last night nor likely to today

Mike Sparks has penned a little parody on 'In Ashwater Town' that chronicles the night the St Albans folk club - with Martin carthy as guest - was delayed by the St stephens bell ringers

But then he has contributed a few songs to the 'tradition'

'My Lady of tesco' 'Embalming Tommy'

Mike is resident and co bookings organiser of the Herga Folk Club Wealdstone , Harrow, Nth London
