Lily the Pink


Laugh all you want - this was a #1 hit, and one of these guys is Paul McCartney's brother.

I know this one in Dutch, from wedding parties: we zulle drinke drinke drinke tottewe zinke zinke zinke (we shall drink, drink, drink untill we sink sink, sink)

Thanks for bringing this one up. Now I'll go hang myself...

Splog, post a version if you can....we can educate the readers without them realizing it.

Sorry, I don't have one. Nothing more depressing than the memory of traditional Dutch weddings with a two piece band: Philicorda organ and drums, with the same torturing simple songs each time and allways the same horrifying group dances, so I have never really searched for this one on pirate bay ;-)
But I promise to post it if I accidentally come across a copy.
The consequences will be yours, ok?

I downloaded this clip a few years ago and never had the nerve to watch it. I still don't.

I never did get the popularity of Tiny Tim either...I guess the era was open to quirky straight outta left field music...

Oi! Don;t knock The Scaffold! Not only was the hairy one the great poet Roger McGough, but the baldy looking guy was John Gorman, who went on to TISWAS. Insulting any of them is treason in the UK - they are the true heroes. And rightly so!

Oh Veg, you're right. My comment was purely about the Dutch translation of the song and my own profoundly traumatic experiences in the small Dutch villages round Amsterdam as a teenager ;-)

Veg - when I posted this clip on one of my friend's fbook pages, she had to check to see if it wasn't a Python sketch that she had never seen. Really - no one here knows them. It was one of my "You Tube Recommends"!
