Sorry Ron and Steve, whatever it is that you are both sprinkling on your muesli, it’s not producing the right vibes. :fsbgrin: :fswink:

They may have muesli on this cruise ship, but I never looked. BTW, don't tell Plummy that this ship is even smaller than the ones he dismissed as "not real" previously.

Peter and Paul, having looked at both of your replies, in fairness, I must give this to Paul, as he has come up with the correct song title =D> and not just part of the lyrics.In my life there has been heartache and pain

Peter, on the other matter, my lips are 🤐 :fsbgrin: :fswink:

Again? I thought I’d searched the thread before posting it.

Anyway, you’re right, so it’s your turn to put one up.

Sorry Paul, I thought it had been used before, but I am wrong.

Now, an oldie, but one that has been covered in the UK and used in various films.

"Oh yes", although those are "great" guesses, they are not close.

Plummy to the rescue! Thank you. I had the original by the Platters in mind.

It is 12:07 AM here off the coast of Africa, so this is the first post on my Birthday.

Just in case I confused anyone with my last post, the above line came before the other two I posted. It's still It's Over and it's still Jill's turn to post another line or two.
