This time by a brother: ‘if you’re going to quote Lonnie’s lyrics you might as well get them correct'.
I plead guilty. Having for years regaled anyone and everyone who unwittingly mentioned lilies I’d reply as I did in my last blog. As apologies are now all the rage I do so unreservedly and offer you the proper words:
I say, I say, I say
My dustbin’s full of lilies
(Well throw ‘em away then)
I can’t Lilly’s wearing them
