A bit more would be nice though. He only realised I was a bird a week ago!

Talking of Singing When Minging,I am reliably informed that the X Factor returns tonight.
Sorry *chuckles* You got a bit mixed up there.

What you meant was Minging Singers on the X Factor Tonight. :D

I see what I did.
Darn Sarf "minging" means ugly,whereas Up There it apparently means "drunk"
Either way there will be those who hit every branch of the ugly tree as they fell through it,appearing on the idiot box sometime soon.

I once taught a group of Korean colleagues, "We're no' awa' tae bide awa'" while over there on a trip. They made a surprisingly good go of it, even though we were all pished as farts. Feckin funny, but I suppose you did have to be there.

As I gaed doon tae Wilson Toon
I met wee Geordie Scobie,
I says "Mon, could ye go a hauf,
He says, "Man! That's ma hobby.

For we're no' awa' tae bide awa',
For we're no' awa tae le'e ye,
For we're no' awa' tae bide awa',
We'll aye come back an' see ye.

Imagine it sung by paralytic Korean businessmen who have difficulty difficulty pronoucing Rs and Ws anyway. Or their own names after nearly 16 hours straight drinking.

Don't ever believe the old tale that orientals can't hold their whisky <clutches liver and winces at memory>.

Drunken Boat by The Pogues I know all the words. It's a good song.
Once got 'more than I bargained for' from a Brazilian chick (it impressed her) while we were round a fire in the outback...of Kent.
Also Mystery By Inspiral Carpets is quite good - funnily enough also same happened with a Colombian/Australian in Regents Park late one night. I don't sing now I've run out of Latinas.

Pogues Drunken Boat lyrics The Pogues

The wind was whipping shingle through the windows in the town
A hail of stones across the roof, the slates came raining down
A blade of light upon the spit came sweeping through the roar
With me head inise a barrel and me leg screwed in the floor

Mother pack me bags because I'm off to foreign parts
Don't ask me where I'm going 'cause I'm sure it's off the charts
I'll pin your likeness on the wall right buy my sleeping head
I'll send you cards and letters so you'll know that I'm not dead

By this time in a week I should be far away from home
Trailing fingers through the phospor or asleep in flowers of foam
From Macao to Acapulco from Havana to Seville
We'll see monoliths and bridges and the Christ up on the hill

An aria with the Russians at the piano in the bar
With icefloes through the window we raised glasses to the Czar
We squared off on a dockside with a coupled hundred Finns
And we dallied in the 'dilly and we stoaked ourselves in gin

Now the only deck I'd want to walk
Are the stalks of corn beneath my feet
And the only sea I want to sail
Is the darkned pond in the scented dusk
Where a kid crouced full of sadness
Lets his boat go drifting out
Into the evening sun

We sailed through constellations and were rutted by the storm
I crumpled under cudgel blows and finally came ashore
I spent the next two years or more just staring at the wall
We went to sea to see the world and what d'you think we saw?

If we turned the table upside down and sailed around the bed
Clamped knives between our teeth and tied bandannas round our heads
With the wainscot our horizon and the ceiling as the sky
You'd not expect that anyone would go and * die

At nights we passed the bottle round and drank to our lost friends
We lay alone upon our bunks and prayed that this would end
A wall of moving shadows with rows of swinging keys
We dreamed that whole Leviathans lay rotting in the weeds

There's a sound that comes from miles away if you lean your head to hear
A ship's bell rings on board a wreck where the air is still and clear
And up in heaven that means another angel's got his wings
But all below it signifies is a ship's gone in the drink

Mystery. Inspiral Caprpets. Lyrics.

So tell me of the future, as I sit down and pray
So tell me of the treasures, and the pitfalls in the way
Summer city, bathed in golden light, a simple secret, knowing no return
THIS IS WHERE I WAS BORN AND DIED
THIS IS WHERE I WANT TO BE
THIS IS THE LAND THAT I CALL HOME
AND YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT FROM ME
So tell me of the bridges, as we pass underneath
So tell me of the stones, and what lies beneath
Why speak of stones if it's the arch that matters to me ?
Without the stone, there can be no bridge
THIS IS WHERE I WAS BORN AND DIED
THIS IS WHERE I WANT TO BE
THIS IS THE LAND THAT I CALL HOME
AND YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT FROM ME
So tell me of my voyage, as I set sail today
Years of youthful friendship degenerate into brawls
I stumble like a blind man
I won't forget you and the choices that we made
THIS IS WHERE I WAS BORN AND DIED
THIS IS WHERE I WANT TO BE
THIS IS THE LAND THAT I CALL HOME
AND YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT FROM ME
Catch you falling (7x)
Pah! I have seen the Pogues live in Ireland ... I lost a shoe but survived....

For some reason I can't get "Men of Harlech" out of my head today??

Men of Harlech, march to glory,
Victory is hov'ring o'er ye,
Bright-eyed freedom stands before ye,
Hear ye not her call?
At your sloth she seems to wonder;
Rend the sluggish bonds asunder,
Let the war-cry's deaf'ning thunder
Every foe appall.
Echoes loudly waking,
Hill and valley shaking;
'Till the sound spreads wide around,
The Saxon's courage breaking;
Your foes on every side assailing,
Forward press with heart unfailing,
'Till invaders learn with quailing,
Cambria ne'er can yield!

Thou, who noble Cambria wrongest,
Know that freedom's cause is strongest,
Freedom's courage lasts the longest,
Ending but with death!
Freedom countless hosts can scatter,
Freedom stoutest mail can shatter,
Freedom thickest walls can batter,
Fate is in her breath.
See, they now are flying!
Dead are heap'd with dying!
Over might hath triumph'd right,
Our land to foes denying;
Upon their soil we never sought them,
Love of conquest hither brought them,
But this lesson we have taught them,
"Cambria ne'er can yield!"

Well done Mr. Deputy for drunken boat, that must've taken dedication and the liberal application of booze.

At least that's how I do it.....

Just starting on a shwally now, aaaaaaaaaaaaahhh that's better!!!

Tonight's song is "Blue Light of Yokohama" by Ishida Ayumi.

At least it will be till I can listen to London's Kalling at 11pm to hear about "Picking Up The Brass" :D
