Nee naa nee naa I said when I was done
I have just had a bud, honest, only one
“Now listen ‘ere Noddy you were breaking the speed limit
So blow in the bag to see if there’s alcohol in it
Noddy said he was clean; now please can I leave
Go on then said plod which was a relief
Noddy got in his car then Plod called him with his pen
Sign ‘ere with your autograph and ‘ere over again
The look on their faces when they saw they’d been had
By Noddy in Toy town made big ears rather glad.
That time wasting plods who drive their panda car
Weren’t out there catching real crooks or a cat burglar
Jim laughed away to himself then put down his guitar and headed for the bedroom. He dropped his clothes on the floor and got into bed. He was soon fast asleep.
Rosina came in to find Jim in bed she picked up his clothes and folded them and put them on the chair next to her dressing table. She undressed and got into bed beside her husband.
Jim apologised to Rosina as soon as he got up; Rosina could never get mad at him for long.
“Do you want coffee?’
“What time are the lads coming?’
“They said nine but it will be closer to ten you can bet on it.’
Jim nibbled on a piece of toast and Rosina tried to make him eat more.’
He just laughed at her then drank his coffee. Jim had lost a lot of weight over the last month and Rosina was beginning to notice. His cheekbones were more prominent even through his long hair.’
Jim liked the radio on so he could here the latest sounds and noticed that the heavy metal sounds of The Rolling Stones, Free, Nazareth, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Cream, Led Zeplin, Status Quo, Deep Purple, Lynrd Skynyrd, Genesis, and The Who, were coming into prominence, Glam rock bands were also forming and Marc Bolan and T Rex, The Sweet, Slade and Wizard were all beginning to make the breakthrough.’
Jim told Rosina if they didn’t move with this new music scene then they would be left behind. When the lads turned up he turned up the radio and asked them to listen.’
What’s up they asked?’
“Just listen man, we are being left behind here all this new music is evolving, and we are still bashing out old rock and roll. “ We have to change guys if we are to carry on. We have to reinvent ourselves like the Beatles.’
“Yeah well I have a few ideas that I’d like to bash around a bit said Mick.’
Great; grab a coffee if you like and let’s go into the studio and try out something new.
“What if the fans don’t like what we do?’ Paul said with a look of uncertainty on his face.’
