Advance Notice about Friday 8th July ...

Please remember that we are hoping for a prompt start at 8.00pm with music on Friday.
This is because we will need to begin packing up at 10.15.

Doors will open at 7.30pm, and an Ancient Mariner will occupy the MC's chair.
Here he is:


Anyone who dares to attend in the guise of an albatross will be shot, thus:


It might tempt you to come along when I share the fact that we will be graced with the company of Anne-Marie, a French friend of Angela and Roland.
Some will remember that Anne-Marie engaged us with a rendition of Santiano last year.
I have requested that she perform this anthemic piece once more.
The chorus and some youtube links to the song are on this blog at http://cityfolkclub.blogspot.com/2010/07/santiano-more-like-this-please.html
I thought this was rather a good song:



Yes ... there are a lot of words, but all you really need to remember are these three common French words:
"Hisse et Ho!"

Will there be badges saying "I have sung in the French tongue at the City Folk Club"?

Does such demand exist?
I have been considering a badge declaring "I did GLOSSOLALIA at ..."!

What is it recently with all this Francais singing? They've invaded before you know. We just don't have the land for more cathedrals now, and the upkeep has been so expensive. We don't have the material or the skills to handle even more commitment. "Honi soit qui Mali Pense mon cheri content crepe suzette"

I don't like your accent, MB e.g. crêpe, chérie. And it's "mal y pense".
Défense de cracher! Non, merci, garçon! Au derrière! Sonnez les matines! Perhaps we should make ready the French song which contains the lines: "honi soit qui mal y pense, Hammersmith Palais de Danse, zut alors! ma crêpe suzette. Or perhaps I should alone - there's no pointe is us both getting our frogs' legs in a tangle.
Fin.

I was just gonna ignore all that but the mention of Hammersmith Palais was too much. Have you, Parkingspaceman, ever been there? No lies and no phone hacking. Guess who has? I taught Joe Loss all he knew. Not so much about music & dance, more about being rejected by the fair sex. Q: "Could I have the pleasure of this dance please?" A: No!

Je pense que J'ai perdu l'intrigue.

Why the capital letter for the 'J' in "j'ai"? Are you some kind of egotist? Un peu d'humilité wouldn't go amiss, y'know.

Parce que Je suis Anglais.

Sacré bleu! Some people travel, but they never go abroad. I'd like to see how you get on writing in German, then, Du kleine Dinksboms!
