Ian Burdon 'Where do you go to my Lovely' - Discuss (189* d) Lyr Add: TWO LITTLE BOYS 13 Oct 07

In the late fifties/early sixties he was quite the rising star on jazz guitar and it is said that the relationship with La Bardot was terminated when she realised that he was beginning to catch up with her in the fame stakes. In France he was sufficiently well known and respected for George Brassens to give him a song (Le Myosotis)

Anyway, I've enjoyed reading through this thread and to add to all of the above highlights of popular song would offer the following which UK and OZ readers will recognise immediately. Feel free to sing along; one, two, three...

Two little boys had two little toys
Each had a wooden horse
Gaily they played each summer's day
Warriors both of course
One little chap then had a mishap
Broke off his horse's head
Wept for his toy then cried with joy
As his young playmate said

Did you think I would leave you crying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Jack and don't be crying
I can go just as fast with two
When we grow up we'll both be soldiers
And our horses will not be toys
And I wonder if we'll remember
When we were two little boys

Long years had passed, war came so fast
Bravely they marched away
Cannon roared loud, and in the mad crowd
Wounded and dying lay
Up goes a shout, a horse dashes out
Out from the ranks so blue
Gallops away to where Joe lay
Then came a voice he knew

Did you think I would leave you dying
When there's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon be flying
I can go just as fast with two
Did you say Joe I'm all a-tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys

Do you think I would leave you dying
There's room on my horse for two
Climb up here Joe, we'll soon by flying
Back to the ranks so blue
Can you feel Joe I'm all a tremble
Perhaps it's the battle's noise
But I think it's that I remember
When we were two little boys
