      Some young pukekos who seem to think I’m just a bloody waiter who should be at their beck and call at any time of the day have got another think coming! >:D
      No names though.

        I know a white dog who seems to think that if he lies on a pillow he becomes invisible.I won’t name names, either, he knows who he is.

        A crowd of dunnocks, sparrers, waxeyes and two mynahs seem to think that this is a free restaurant, too.The waxeyes know that the others won’t eat their fruit, so eat the other food first. Is this low cunning or cleverness ?

      He did the original in C# but he does that later version in D.
      C# is better.

        Oops – original’s in D#. Still the better version.

          (hurriedly) Donovan was long before my time, of course.

      Man, the number of influences I hear in that. Beatles (It’s in his vocal style – Neil’s a big fan), Pink Floyd. Who else do you hear?

          Thanks – I’ve turned telly on to watch. Looks great. Wish they had an On Demand option.

        All I know is that Neil Finn seems able to endlessly reinvent and update himself; has played and recorded as part of so many different projects that I can’t keep up. Mick Fleetwood plays on a few tracks on this album, and this track includes a couple of Greek musos playing accordion and something…Greek.
