Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

October 8th, 2006 at 07:21pm

This week the award goes to 2CC’s Mike Welsh & Frankie plus Frankie’s friend Alex and one of Alex’s unnamed friends (that’s a mouthful) for their combined effort, The Ballad Of John & How. Whilst I now know that Alex’s unnamed friend is the singer, I originally suspected that it was Kim Payne, producer of the Mike Jeffreys Breakfast Programme…I was quite wrong about that one!

With thanks to Mike Welsh I can offer a download this week:

He can’t walk on water, he can’t raise the dead
How can he be so damn good when he can’t lie straight in bed
Plenty around, they would if they could
Little Johnny How– can he be so good

Kids are in detention, kids are overboard
Sing the same song and tug the right cord
Cricket is the ashes, lies are bulldust
At the end of the day just who do ya trust
Being a pollie don’t make you a cheat
Just don’t ask how we sell our wheat
Winners are grinners and losers are not
Get what you can, and keep what you got

He can’t walk on water, he can’t raise the dead
How can he be so damn good when he can’t lie straight in bed
Plenty around, they would if they could
Little Johnny How– can he be so good

Once upon a time, turn back the clock
Little Johnny H was a laughing stock
Took it on the chin and took it in the back
Now it’s George and John in the same sack
Don’t be alarmed and don’t be alert
Little white lies and no one get hurt
All about clichés, pain and no gain
Excuse me sir, but could you please explain

He can’t walk on water, he can’t raise the dead
How can he be so damn good when he can’t lie straight in bed
Plenty around, they would if they could
Little Johnny How– can he be so good
Little Johnny How– can he be so good
Little Johnny How– can he be so good
