Isn’t this a sweet little song by someone with the most unusual name…..Mervyn J Futter. 

I must confess that I’d never heard of him before  - but it wouldn’t surprise me if I

never forget  him again.  I think it’s his daughter who sings the song with him, hasn’t

she got a lovely voice.  Mervyn is probably a really nice guy, but when I hear

 his name this image comes into my mind…….


                                                                  Mervyn J Futter has a terrible stutter

                                                                  And his eyes are as crossed as his toes

                                                                  His head is bald and his legs are bowed

                                                                  And his eyes are bright red  -  like his nose



Hope you enjoy the little dance I’ve written to go with this song… and if you

can keep Mervyn’s image out of YOUR mind, it should feel nice to do.

See you on the floor sometime……….Jan
