Oops and Ouch.

Well we are back to normal at the Eurovision …U.K. came second to last at position 25 ! I thought our song deserved a little more love to be fair.

The show though put on in Liverpool as host for last year’s winners Ukraine was AMAZEBALLS &BONKERS! I loved it! Sam Ryder, last year’s runner up did a great job entertaining us while the votes were sorted . His new song Mountain is wonderful and inspiring …

“I am a mountain
And down in the valley below
Is all that I’ve overcome
All that I’ve overcome, woah-oh
” just part of the beautiful lyrics, Sam was joined on stage by dancers with disabilities and prosthetic limbs to show you can overcome. Another suprise was Roger Taylor from Queen playing the drums. Do watch the video it great.

And of course Ukraine who won last year but could not host because of the war came in 6th place . They had their party at our house 🌹

Who won ? Loreen from Sweden…well done Sweden. Interesting song.

Ah well there’s always next year. 😄💜💜💜

From the Caribbean to Egypt.

Good morning it’s Sunday and our host Jim Adams has asked to use Girl Bands, Groups as our Song Lyric Sunday prompt. Well I am going from the sublime to the ridiculous…I love both the groups I have chosen .

The Beverley Sisters (MBE) were an English female close harmony pop vocal and light entertainment trio, consisting of three siblings from London. They were most popular during the 1950s and 1960s, and became well-known through their radio and television appearances. They also toured the cabaret circuit. They were also known for their matching outfits, which they wore both on- and off-stage.

YOU WILL SEE THAT THEY WERE ALL BORN ON 5TH May Joy 1924 and the twins 1927 ! How’s that for a coincidence?

The Beverleys consisted of eldest sister Joy (born Joycelyn Victoria Chinery, 5 May 1924 – 31 August 2015), and twins Teddie (born Hazel P. Chinery, 5 May 1927) and Babs (born Babette Patricia Chinery, 5 May 1927 – 28 October 2018)

Their style was loosely modelled on that of their American counterparts, The Andrews Sisters. Their notable successes included the Irving Berlin-penned “Sisters” and the Christmas songs “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus“, “Little Donkey“, and “Little Drummer Boy“, while in the United States they charted with a version of Greensleeves.

By the waters of the Caribbean
Lived a lovely little Latin Queen
In her bathing suit she can be seen
Strolling down beside the sea

But her bathing suit never got wet
And she was the Admiral’s daughter
And always so close to the water
But her bathing suit never got wet

Then one day imagine her surprise
Clouds began to gather in the skies
There she stood just like a frightened pup
When the heavens opened up

But her bathing suit never got wet
For there on the sand was a feller
And he had the cutest umbrella
So her bathing suit never got wet

Then a boy whom she’d snubbed one day
He got revenge, and in the very sweetest way
He turned the hose upon this Latin Beaut’
Who standing in her bathing suit

But her bathing suit never got wet
No, no, no, no
For while she was weeping and screaming
She woke up and found she was dreaming
So her bathing suit never got wet

Here’s what happened on the beach one night
When she saw nobody was in sight
She made up her mind and she went
Swimming to her heart’s content

But her bathing suit never got wet
You’d agree that she couldn’t look cuter
Wearin’ her birthday suiter
So her bathing suit never got wet

No it never, never, never, never got wet
Not yet

All the old paintings on the tombs
They do the sand dance don’t you know?
If they move too quick (oh whey oh)
They’re falling down like a domino

All the bazaar men by the Nile
They got the money on a bet
Gold crocodiles (oh whey oh)
They snap their teeth on your cigarette

Foreign types with the hookah pipes say
(Whey oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh)
Walk like an Egyptian

The blonde waitresses take their trays
They spin around and they cross the floor
They’ve got the moves (oh whey oh)
You drop your drink, then they bring you more

All the school kids so sick of books
They like the punk and the metal band
When the buzzer rings (oh whey oh)
They’re walking like an Egyptian

All the kids in the marketplace say
(Whey oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh)
Walk like an Egyptian

Slide your feet up the street, bend your back
Shift your arm then you pull it back
Life is hard you know (oh whey oh)
So strike a pose on a Cadillac

If you wanna find all the cops
They’re hanging out in the donut shop
They sing and dance (oh whey oh)
They spin the clubs, cruise down the block

All the Japanese with their yen
The party boys call the Kremlin
And the Chinese know (oh whey oh)
They walk the line like Egyptian

All the cops in the donut shop say
(Whey oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh)
Walk like an Egyptian
Walk like an Egyptian
