STANDING UP FOR VERA
Some folks are fans of Taylor Swift
Kylie or Beyonce,
but I for one am not impressed,
their singing leaves me quite depressed.
That modern bunch I must admit
just seems a little poncy.
When it comes to songs and singing 'em
Vera Lynn is the girl for me,
i'm just now going on eighty three;
my memory serves me right you see.
My favourite album of hers I cherish
is THE BEST OF VERA LYNN;
a Christmas present from someone dear,
who shared my passion without favour or fear.
Vera won the hearts of our boys,
we never should forget it.
We've sold out now to foreigners
and I for one regret it.
Our Vera, so staunch and patriotic,
carrying the flag in stunning shorts.
Clean as a whistle, openly married
unlike some painted trollops.....
Just now i've lowered the needle down,
my brow is clear, it has no frown.
The cover stares back with its winning smile -
she always went the extra mile.
"There'll be bluebirds over the White Cliffs of Dover."
Simple but honourable, effective I feel.
I'm lifting it now for the final track
see if you can guess just what that is! *
I think as you hear her final strain
you'll want to keep hearing it again and again.
Those other lasses can jump right over
the wonderful English Cliffs of Dover.
* " We'll Meet Again."
