Subject: looking for artist and haunting lyrics
From: GUEST,louise in South Africa

Hi,

a couple of years ago, I heard a haunting song on the radio. It didn't seem to make it in popularity stakes, so it just faded away. But, funnily enough at a campfire singalong, someone mentioned it so I thought 'hey, That's coincidence"! The song was sung by a man, and the words: "Room with a view" wre repeated throughout. The part that I remember goes something like this...."and he used to be a leader, when he had someone to lead ...something something...a room with a vew, howabout you"
Well that's little enough, but you good folks out there have helped in the past, and no doubt will help in the future.
Have a great weekend

A quick search shows it by Tony Carey, lyrics available at (for example) A Room With A View. (Though I prefer Noel Coward's).

ROOM WITH A VIEW
As sung by Tony Carey on "Live in Sweden 2006 Volume 1" (2007)

Well, he used to be a tailor, sewed those suits so fine,
And he never heard of failure and he never tasted wine.
He used to be a leader when he had someone to lead,
And he used to be a father when he had some mouths to feed,
When he had some mouths to feed.

And they say it never rains in L A County.
It gets cold enough to wish you had a few;
And he laughs tonight, says, "I finally found me
A room with a view,
Room with a view,
Room with a view.
How 'bout you?"

He was living in a castle that he built with his own hands
Out of newspaper and cardboard; he was living off the land.
He was living off the land.
He was living off the land;
And they say it never rains in L A County.
It gets cold enough to wish you had a few,
And he laughs tonight and says, "I finally found me
A room with a view.
Oh, how 'bout you?
Oh, how about you?
How 'bout you?"

Drift in interests of accuracy, from MtheGM the Official Legendary Pedant ~~

"They say" wrong!

I have been twice to LA, 6 months apart, in Oct 2003 & Apr 2004.

It pissed with miserable teeming rain both times.
