Thread Name: First Songs You Performed
Subject: RE: First Songs You Performed
At the age of five, "My Old Man's a Dustman" - and I also 'recorded' it in one of those booths they used to have at seaside resorts. (My favourite part of that song always was, and still is, the bit about the tiger's head four foot from his tail).

My second public performance of this song (with dance routine as well, this time !): three weeks ago at the school I go into to teach drama. Another teacher and I were the 'surprise act' in the end of year show "On their comeback tour from the Teachers' Twilight Home for the Bewildered". Great fun - and for most of the kids the first time they had ever heard the song.

My song-and-dance partner and I are available for weddings, barmitzvahs, bus queues and just about anywhere that will tolerate us, really....
