Compo

Songs that stick in the mind...

Recommended Posts

Some songs just stick in your mind forever.  Take the following example for instance; I will not say who it is by but if you was a teen in the 60s you will probably not be able to read through the lyrics without singing it, either in your head or even out loud:

 

The purpose of a man is to love a woman
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man
So come on, baby
Let's start today
Come on, baby
Let's play

The game of love, love
La, la, la, la, la love

 

It started long ago in the Garden of Eden
When Adam said to Eve
Baby, you're for me
So come on, baby
Let's start today
Come on, baby
Let's play

The game of love, love
La, la, la, la, la love

 

Come on, baby
'Cause the time is right
Love your daddy with all your might
Put your arms around me
Hold me tight
Play the game of love

She was a comptometer operator in the accountancy firm where I worked in the 60’s and I know she lived on Raymede Drive. It would have been polite to ask her for her surname!smile2

No Benjamin - wrong Angela, ours was a brunette. Reference her Mam - how much could you rent her for?

So, you see Ben,. There is a song about Bertha.  CP beat us both.  Late wife's aunt was a Bertha.  She was also a headmistress of a school.  Never married.

Had a head teacher whos first name was Bertha.

 

Could have been the same lady CP.. It's an uncommon name.  The Bertha I'm referring to lived  in the Newcastle area.

I can’t remember a girl called Bertha or anyone that lived on Raymede Drive. I did know a girl, very well, who lived with her Mam and Dad in Rise Park.
