My daughter has a song she's sung for 40 or so years. The macrame turns into a knotted man and after various adventures he gets wet and shrinks away.
Can any one help with the origins of this song please.
Here's the first verse to help identify it.
When I came out of hospital the Dr said to me
Why don't you take up Macrame and get some therapy
So I bought myself a ball of twine and sat out in the sun
Didn't know it was to be the start of so much fun

A quick and almost fruitless Google search has come up with this:
Dramarama: The Macrame Man
Dramarama was a UK children's TV series and The Macrame Man was one of the stories/episodes which aired in 1988. Is it possible that the song is somehow related to that?
If at all possible, can you give us some more information please? Does your daughter have more info on where she heard the song, or can you give us some more of the lyrics, please?
