By jive, I mean slang. Tough song with a time constraint to boot! Anyway, rough go, but enjoy a visit to Mother England with your perfect Seasons attendance record intact.

    I also got the wrong end of the stick initially and recorded a little paoriginoodle for the season which I hoped would be jive(ish) or at least jump blues(ish) enough to count.
    I hope by renaming it Barking Up the Wrong Tree it will become acceptable.


    Bonza theme Christopher!
    Thanks for hosting.

    drops the Tat and becomes TITFER which still means Hat
    So with Rabbit and Pork = Talk the Pork is left out a Rabbit = Talk

Apparently this song comes under the "jive" category as it seems to appear on all the lists ... it's not an easy one to sing, though, when you're getting a cold.

    I thought go-go was slang for pee pee, wee wee or tee tee..............Ive always been confused about this song? You certainly don't have to wake me before you go-go!

    Well, thank you, Linda ... you have justified my submission for this week! To be honest, I can't say I've ever heard of "go-go" in a lavatorial context, but ... THANK YOU!!! (And, fear not, I wouldn't dream of disturbing you for such a minor event.)
