My thoughts and opinions

The Clapping Song

Posted by Ian Blyth on 5 December 2006

Driving home I heard this old 1965 Shirley Ellis song on the radio. It is still sounds bright, breezey and fun after 40 years. But even after all that time I still don’t understand the lyrics. Old age and wisdom don’t necessarily cover everything and you don’t have to understand something to enjoy it!

Wikipedia has info on the song at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Clapping_Song 

Lyrics at http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/aaroncarter/theclappingsong.html

Info about Shirley Ellis at http://www.spectropop.com/ShirleyEllis/index.htm

Amazing – with a quick search I can find so much info. What did we do before the Internet?
