One man band.....


 well nobody sees the minstrel boy as he sings his tale of woe
nobody sees him coming
nobody see him go
so hey there mister don't you look so sad
don't look so ill at ease
well I can play you any song you like
to cheer up that life you lead

well I'm a one man band
nobody knows nor understands
is there anybody out there wanna lend me a hand
with my one man band

Go on I dare you to listen! Don't be too sad for him, he did attract a very nice audience, but you can feel sad for me, I'm a wee bit under the weather, I've caught the the dreaded 'change of season' flu bug that's rampant at the moment, so I'll be cosying up in bed for the next couple of days. Hope you feel better than I do, have a good Friday, take care.....

  2. Singing has never been my strong suit - or any kind of suit, really, but it would be fun to have a big bass drum on my back!
    A dozen bless yous you will probably need over the weekend. Hope you are on the mend soon!

  6. Aw, hope you feel better soon. I enjoyed listening to Leo Sayer, my kind of era! The street musician seems to have quite a complex set-up there. They get more and more sophisticated.
