Anyway, I totally accept that you didn't need my contribution and I think you should put up the next set of lyrics Ron.
Ron, I am in full agreement with Paul.

You are up next. :)

Re: Name that tune

It sounds like the cadence of Mambo No 5, but I don't recognise those particular lyrics.

Definitely not. :shock: :lol: Richard recognised the lyrics strai...

Re: Tell us about your Holiday plans

At this stage, our planned trip to Alvor in mid July is looking very doubtful. The 14 day quarantine for those arriving in Ireland from abroad is still in place and friends of ours who were due to be in Alvor at the same time as us have cancelled their flights. On the plus side, my home gym is not ...

Thank you Paul - I didn’t know that Bonio had an actress daughter either. I have also heard the finger snapping story but have no idea as to whether it’s true or not.

Far more revered by the Irish public than Mr Hewson. Paul Hewson's daughter, Eve, was interviewed recently about her leading role in the BBC's new drama, The Luminaries .

No Paul, not Smooth Operator

More lyrics:

This is a song by Bob Seger - one word title, woman's name. The cover version that I have is by a singer ( who was one of your fellow countrymen ) and his band.

so here's another clue. Irish singer-songwriter who took his name from two English operetta composers. You would indeed! Now you just need to name the song. After your helpful clue, naming the singer was the easy bit ... The only song I can think of ( and then I'm not so sure ) is Alone Again or fa...
