GUEST,harvey andrews Lyr Add: Ag Pleez Daddy (Jeremy Taylor) (56* d) RE: Lyr Add: Ag Pleez Daddy 11 Jan 02


This song means a lot to me. I was a student when it was in the charts in England. A friend showed me my first three chords on a guitar and that evening I wrote a parody. We had a lecturer who gave us excruciating health lectures who's initials were DAD, so of course, we called him daddy. The opening line was "ag, pleez Daddy wont you give us a health lecture.." I sang it the next night in a college talent show...and that was my first solo public performance. Jeremy and I worked together frequently in the 70's. He is now living just outside Shrewsbury. I saw him recently at a local folk club, audience about 20, and thought long and hard on how a man of such brilliant talent could be so little known in our society. It's probably because he sings and plays, stimulates and entertains, asks questions and challenges an audience and doesn't just dance and mime to percussion tracks. Pardon the sour grapes but I'm distinctly pissed off with Britain's ever accelerating dumbing down!
