IT'S ALL ABOUT THE KNEES

For me it's been all about my knees lately. With surgery possibly looming in the near future on my right knee, I've been pretty nervous about what's going to happen. So here's a song that makes me smile every time I hear it. At least it helps me relieve a little bit of tension thinking about surgery. It's an old English ditty from way, way back. This is the best video I could find on YouTube, however.


Knees up Mother Brown!
Knees up Mother Brown!
Under the table you must go
Ee-i-ee-i-ee-i-oh!
If I catch you bending,
I'll saw your legs right off,
Knees up! Knees Up!
Don't get the breeze up,
Knees up Mother Brown!

Oh My! What a rotten song!
What a rotten song!
Oh, What a rotten song!
Oh My! What a rotten song!
What a rotten singer too!

Knees up Mother Brown!
Knees up Mother Brown!
Under the table you must go
Ee-i-ee-i-ee-i-oh!
If I catch you bending,
I'll saw your legs right off,
Knees up! Knees Up!
Don't get the breeze up,
Knees - up - Mother - Brown!

Ow's yer farver? All right!

I say, old chap, that was a jolly good rendering of "Knees up Mother Brown!" I would certainly not be capable of imitating that working class accent, even though I grew up only 35 miles from that singer.
