Subject: Lyr Add: SOUTHERN VECTIS BUS SONG (Lauri Say)

Set to a tune (if not the tune) of Wabash Cannonball. Several videos of it are available on Youtube for your viewing pleasure.

SOUTHERN VECTIS BUS SONG
(Lauri Say)

From the grubby sands of Shanklin, if ever you should stray
From Yarmouth down to Ventnor, from Wight to Totland Bay
From Bembridge to The Needles, from Yaverland to Brook
You'll find a Southern Vectis bus wherever you may look
If you're lucky

CHORUS
Listen to the rumble, the racket and the din
And listen to the jingle of the money rollin' in
Well it's a public company, and it's owned by all of us
So make yourself a provident ride on a Southern Vectis bus

It doesn't really matter if you're off the beaten track
A Vectis bus will pick you up and swiftly bring you back
And if you chance to miss it, well, you mustn't scream or swoon
You know there'll be another one tomorrow afternoon

CHORUS

Get a 19 out to Newtown, for Niton catch a 10
A 24 to Alverston, gets you there and back again
It doesn't really matter if you live out in the sticks
You can always get to Atherfield no number 36
Three times a day

CHORUS

If you're marooned at Merstone, our service will not fail
From Whitwell or from Wellow, from Chillerton or Chale
From all point of the island we will get you home alright
Provided you don't travel after half-past-nine at night

CHORUS

Now here's to our conductors, they do a worthy job
You'll always find them smiling when they charge you a couple of bob
And if you feel like quibbling, they'll never wear a frown
They know that in the summer it will cost you half-a-crown

CHORUS

Lauri was a wonderful man and wrote some great songs.. have many of them downloaded. Saw him and his friends perform "live" at the Isle of Wight where we all lived.

I have just looked through my list of songs on my computer and half of them seem to have disappeared including many of Lauri Say's. I don't have the one you asked for but will check the computer again to see what has happened and if I find it I will post again.

PS: My wife shares the computer with me.. enough said!!!

I asked for the lyrics of 'the advertising man' about 10 years ago but no-one seems to have them. Here are the only snippets I can remember.

Ch: Oh the advertising man pours his message in your ear
His slogans are pounding in your brain.

Oh a man will look a real dream if he smears his hair with Brylcream
And in his Raelbrook shirt he can't be beat.
But if he gives them all a thrill with his Black & Decker drill
He'll have the girls all rolling at his feet.

UDI for the IoW

and another verse about processed food ended

Now you're feeling all bloated and your stomach's sugar coated
And you find your weight's gone up by thirty pounds.

Sorry about the multiple posts above. Wi fi hung I think.

Tidied up! ---mudelf
