Sometimes nothing else makes sense.

Excellent noise, Mr I. One step for sighing and two for crying indeed.

I just love "......and Miss, you don't know me, but can't we pretend, that we care for each other, 'til the band reach the end?"

I was a latecomer to Thompson, Mrs n, so not a fan in the accepted sense and I used to find that he was so close to the bone sometimes that it was unbearable but after a few years his art had helped me understand, a bit more, the meaning of being a man.

There are other, orchestrated versions, if you look for them, mr mongoose, which are an even better noise.
