Does anyone remember The Triffid Song? I seem to remember hearing Dave Ward sing it something like 30 or 40 years ago. Speaking of Dave, does anyone remember him and/ or know what he's doing now? His name was mentioned in one of the contributions to Diz's thread.

As best as I can remember it from over 25 years ago

THE TRIFFID sONG

Theres a Triffid at the bottom of my garden,
It's a thing that we do not like at all.
For it ate my little brother and it made a pass at mother
And sister has done something in the hall.

Theres a Dalek and it's trying to rape my dustbin,
And with each embrace the dustbin gives a squeak.
Well the dustbin's overflowing and fungoid plants are growing,
Since my Dalek raped the dustbin man last week.

Theres a Triffid at the bottom of my garden,
It's a thing that we've slowly grown to hate.
So I'll go out and shoot some lead off and I'll shoot it's bleedin head off,
And I'll hope to God it has'nt got a mate.

cheers

Dave

Wow!
I first heard this song, sung by Alf Fiddler in Chelmsford in 1967. He claimed it as his. He was a music scholar in London and a very talented musician. I have sung a version of this tune around the world since then. It always goes down well!!
