Dad Songs

| | Comments (0)

As we were growing up, Dad would occasionally sing lines of songs that seemed pretty random to us at the time.  Things like "beep beep, beep beep, his horn went beep beep beep" (or beep beep burp).  Or "show me the way to go home, I'm tired and I want to go to bed.  I had a little drink about an hour ago and it's gone right to my head".  Or "they're coming to take me away hey hey".  Or "my eyes are dim I cannot see, I do not have my specs with me".  Some years ago heard the beep beep beep song playing in the shops in Gungahlin and looked it up.  Funny song.

Here's some of my "dad songs" that remind me of him.

This was another of Dad's favourite silly songs.  Frank Kelly's "Dear Nola".  It got played every Christmas for years.

And these are a couple of "family" songs - There's a Hole in the Bucket, and On Top of Spaghetti
