Subject: Origins of Macrame song
From: jacko@nz

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

Hey jacko,

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?
