JCB Song

Alright Zippy & co., what's that all about then?

(Is it an ode to early truancy? )

theres a link "on the inside cover of the excercise book" to 'about the song'... which explains that he was Dyslexic and struggled at school so his dad would sometimes take him out on his JCB instead... so basically you are right - early truancy ... somehow even though I know its wrong for him not to be at school you can't help feel some compasion for someone who the system has failed. On the news tonight I heard that the average teacher has had less than 1 hour of training in teaching dyslexic students... a bit scary when 1 in 10 of the population has the condition!

Great lyrics but the song is crap - expected it to be more upbeat and catchy - something like that National Express coaches one!!!

It's different... and poignant too (IMHO )

P.S. Think it's 'Happy Birthday to Ribald !'

Are you QHM'ing these days?
