Subject: behind the staffroom door

When I was a student (Bretton Hall) in the 70s one of our ex-students came back to the folk club and sang a song which I think was his own and I think was called "behind the staffroom door" (sorry to be so vague) Does this ring any bells with anyone? I can see his face but can't remember his name.

(We also had a regular singer called Ian Smith who wrote his own stuff but whom I've never heard of since I left.)

Cheers

Weasel-

Seems to me as if it were a parody of some familiar song. I can't quite place it. Do you remember more lines?

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

No, sorry. I know the chap concerned was singing in clubs in the Barnsley region at the time so I hoped maybe somebody might have heard it (he may still be singing there).

It wasn't a comedy song if I remember rightly. It was based on the fact (?) that the majority of folk singers at that time in that area at least, were teachers.

Was the last line of the chorus something along the lines of

"Thank god the kids can never see
Behind the staff room door"?

Cheers,

I'm sorry, just writing a question mark seems very rude. What I meant to say was that I don't understand what you mean by "refresh".

Cheers

Weasel, it's just to make sure the thread doesn't drop off the page but remains visible. Semi obviously thinks its an interesting topic that should remain on the top of the page a bit longer.

Have you looked for info at the Holyground website? There's a fair bit of Bretton Hall stuff on there.

You might do better refreshing this when people are back from Whitby. I was around at the time and vaguely remember hearing it but, like you, I couldn't put a name to it.

A lot of us stayed in the area though so someone is likely to remember.

Behind the Staffroom Door is a book of poems by Brian Moses - could be the source?

Hi Phil,

No, I think not. I've already found that reference on Google before asking here but it seems completely different and there were no names I recognised.

thanks anyway.

Cheers

In view of the "folkies out of Barnsley" thread, may I refresh this one.
