and I have in our repertoire A Song of the Weather
which is yet another delightful Flanders & Swann
song extolling that great British institution and conversation initiator namely TheWeather
. Having lived among Germans for some 40 I have often been the butt my friends "jokes" about all the rotten things that emanate from England. Well, to be fair our weather does range from middling to atrocious. After describing each month's meteorological idiosyncrasy, the song finishes with that wonderful one-liner to whit:
Bloody JANUARY again!
