Sadly on 8th August this year my Dad
John Frederick Davies (age 61) passed way, :-(
he was born and bought up in 39 Sandbeck street, the Dingle
he went to st Cleopas and then Dingle Vale....
He used to tell me the funniest stories about him 2 of his friends competing against each other at school to see who could get the cain the most......
and about letting up penny banger fireworks up the old lead drainpipes
and builing bonfires at the end of the street
he was an amazing dad, father in law and Granddad and will be missed by many....
Although that is not the main reason for me posting, although i wondered if anyone did rememeber my dad from school or playing in the street etc.,..
so getting back to my origional question...
When i was much much yonger i remember my dad singing a very funby and obviously scouse written song, however i have forgotten most of the lyrics.
the only verse i can remeber and i know it is pretty much complete as i can still sing it in my head. here goes
"I'm a man of experience,
just 12 years old.
12 years on the earth
has made me real bold
i'm telling you...
well i like to eat sweets and drink lemonade
and to to the pictures and piull girls pigtails
well they as for it don't they..........."
and its there that i forget the rerst of the words but they where of eqaul wit and wisdom throught the eyes of a 12 year old boy....
i would love to remember recall the words if anyone can help me, as i would love to teach this song 1 day also to my own son
