You mean he wasn't bad-um-tish?

That was exactly what he was doing. Insufferable.

OK - not song lyrics, but where else do I post this?

Mrs McL: So, do you like the new bread I bought today?

Me: Yes, it's very tasty.

Mrs McL: It contains a meagre three.

Me: A meagre three what?

Mrs McL: A meagre three oils.

Me: Aaah...I see...

Recently, someone mentioned Dippity Do hair gel. I had the niggly feeling that the name featured somewhere in a Golden Oldie.
And it does! Thanks to Brian Matthew (BBC2) I found it:

The Move with Flowers In The Rain

"I'm just sitting watching flowers in the rain
Feel the power of the rain keeping me good"

NB: on the radio/telly it says: Brian Matthew selects more classics and rarities from pop's golden decade [60s], including a frequently forgotten track by Bob Lindt.

How does that work??

TV puff: "...the spine-tingling whore, Blair Witch" - wait,no - spine-tingling horror.

Why employ an American accent for that job?

There's also the classic little boy's version of the hymn, 'Gladly, my cross-eyed bear.'

I heard someone use the Alanis Morrisette misheard line "The cross-eyed bear that you gave to me" which made me spray water across my living room and giggle for the next ten minutes. I barely containing laughter while writing this. I think the context makes it so much funnier.

Again, not a song lyric: I heard the TV chap advertising an upcoming programme that seems to be called "Darts, Darts, Darts", although the accompanying images depicted terpsichorean pursuits.

Ah - "Dahnce, Dahnce, Dahnce", dahling.
