From The Vault: March 19 2006

July certainly went rather quickly, and as today is the first day of August, it’s time to take another look in the Vault.

This time we’re going back to the 19th of March 2006.

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

March 19th, 2006 at 07:36pm

This week the award goes to Tom Jones, and the feature song is one I remember hearing in the lounge room when I was about three or four years old. I must have heard it regularly as I had a game of running around the circular mat on the floor whenever it was on.

The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they’ll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home.

The old house is still standing tho’ the paint is cracked and dry,
and there’s that old oak tree I used to play on.
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home.

Then I awake and look around me, at four grey wall that surround me
and I realiae, yes I was only dreaming.
For there’s a guard and there’s a sad old padre –
arm in arm we’ll walk at daybreak.
Again I’ll touch the green, green grass of home.

Yes, they’ll all come to see me in the shade of that old oak tree
as they lay me neath the green, green grass of home.

Samuel

That reminds me of a joke:

Doctor, doctor, I can’t stop singing “The green, green grass of home”

Sounds like you have Tom Jones syndrome!

Tom Jones Syndrome? Is it common?

Its not unusual.

Here’s one for all you whacked out tokers
It’s good to smoke the green green grass at home.
I remember Tom Jones and that song getting so much airplay towards the end of the 60’s.

Let’s see what else Samuel has in this vault.
A Leed Lemonade yo-yo from the sixties, you know they used to use the Road Runner to sell that drink.
A Choo Choo Bar, that was an aniseed chew bar that was hard as a rock, tooth chip bar they should have called it.
Wow here’s a Dux writing pad.
Here’s a hula hoop and a go cart wheel and a packet of Sea Monkeys, well they weren’t really monkeys just microscopic shrimp.
Wow and here is a box of Tom Thumb crackers, I remember Guy Fawkes night well.
You have some really awesome stuff in here Samuel, well done mate.
