Thread Name: Lyr Req: Cook's Friend Emily
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Cook's Friend Emily
The postman, the paperboy, the piano tuner too. They all come the front way like visitors do. But cook's friend Emily (who's afraid of getting fat) pops in the back way and has a little chat.

Thank you to Mrs Clare Cook, our music teacher at Pilgrims Hatch Primary school in Essex who taught me this. A delightful little song we sang in class during the mid 1960s. I could not remember any more of the words so it was fun to tap them into Google and find this page.

Seeing another entry here, I also remember a large speaker being placed on the teacher's desk as we tuned into the BBC broadcast 'Singing Together' with William Appleby. Marvellous!
