It’s not often I have to go down as far as my fourth choice to find a suitable song in response to Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday, but this is one of those times. The theme this week is looking ahead to better times (‘This too shall pass’), but I’ve already used ‘The End’, ‘It’s Over’ and ‘Over, Under, Sideways, Down’.
However, I’m glad I dredged this one from the back of my memory. Performed by the splendidly named Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, this was quite a big hit in 1963.
You’ve got to love the eye-patch.
