Dad Songs…

So back thataway <<—- I mentioned introducing my parents to Youtube over the last couple of days. It's meant the rediscovery of a lot of old favourites from when I was growing up. Dad especially used to sing, typical "Dad songs" – Clementine, The Thing, She'll be Coming 'Round the Mountain etc….

And then I found this little gem. Dad would sing this and I love it. I also love Val Doonican. I had a crush on him when I was about …8… o_0 And the little clip that has been made for this just suited it beautifully 🙂

    Your father had good taste in music :). That last, in particular, is very nostalgic for me, too.

    Dad songs, yes 🙂
    Strange though, I’ve never head that song before. The chorus, I knew, but not the rest. I can see why you loved it.
