Warrigal Sings For His Supper

 

Yes, I have to admit, I sing in the shower. I always have done, and what’s more the shower repertoire has stayed much the same for many years, though different songs do seem to “star” at different times.

 

It’s my father’s fault. He always sang in the shower, usually hymns he learned under duress from his lay preacher father though he had a fondness for “Remember The Red River Valley” and always threatened to turn “Abide With Me” into a cha cha. I have included “I Dream Of Genie” as a tribute to him; though the lyrics he sang were entirely of a different colour scheme, predominantly blue.

 

So here they are, some of the usual suspects from showertime. Get yourself a towel and some soap and knock yourself out.
