Theme Tune Boy Limerick, Ireland

TTB had his special powers revealed unto him in the days before youtube when all one had to help remember 70's kids shows was the power of memory,late night Bravo and Buckfast.
Armed only with the latter and a battered six string, he served up a near perfect (well -fairly close at any rate) rendition of the theme of H.R. Pufnstuff ...words, chords, the lot

Track Name: January Drabs
Driving home after Christmas hoping I don't hear
Driving Home For Christmas for about another year.
there's no one at the bus stops there's no one taking cabs
but I hear a train a'coming it's the January drabs

January drabs, January drabs
the old dog in the yard is barking January drabs
and he's open for business that much I'm sure
and it'll be much worse this year than for many before.

I know I've over indulged and I self medicated
part of the problem on which much of this is predicated
No more useless tinctures you whipped up in your labs
no poultice, leech nor compress beats the January drabs

that January drabs, the January drabs
that monkey on my back is screeching January drabs
January drabs, January drabs
swinging from the lights heralding January drabs

and he's open for business that much I'm sure
and it'll be much worse this year than for many before.

just like the ape from heretofore
I'm not near finished no there's more
an endless stream of metaphor for January drabs

in forms I cannot numbereth
for even when I slumbereth
creeping in my dreams cometh
the January drabs

wherein I'm standing on the foreshore of the sea of tranquillity
hoping my hallucination's onset of senility
that warship that's dropped anchor, that belligerent and rancorous
flagship of admiral wankeritz
-the January drabs

her turrets brought to bear on my co-ordinates, guns bristling
all around and overhead the ordinance comes whistling
atop the cliff orating, the president she gabs
announcing four straight awareness weeks for the January drabs

the January drabs, the January drabs
is that the best that you can do for the January drabs

the January drabs, the January drabs
this and other platitudes for the January drabs

the January drabs, the January drabs
that really won't be much use for the January drabs

the January drabs, the January drabs
every day is not like Sunday
anyway that's not my fun day
every day’s more like the third Monday
of January
