A blues telling the story of my life, right up to the birth of my little nephew Aidan (Sprouty) in 2022.

lyrics

Uncle RicRic's Blues (For Sprouty)

Said I was born in South Glamorgan
In the year 1981
Well yes I was born in South Glamorgan
Way back in the year 1981
Well I crawled out of the hospital
And went out looking for some fun

Well we moved to Welsh St Donats
In the year 1986
Oh yeah we moved to Welsh St Donats
Back in the year 1986
Well there wasn't much to look at
But a house made of yellow bricks
No there wasn't much to look at
But a muddy house made of yellow bricks

Well I went up to school at Monmouth
In the year 1992
Oh yeah I went up to school at Monmouth
In the year 1992
Well I put my suit and tie on
And I grabbed my calculator too
That's right, gonna go and do some Maths, baby!
Alright

When I went to the University
In the year 1999
Oh I went up to University
In the year 1999
Well I packed my amp and my guitar
And I set off for a real good time
Oh yes I did, I wanted a good time baby

When I married my little sweetheart
And I moved up here to Cockermouth
Well I married my little sweetheart
And I moved up North to Cockermouth
Everybody said "boy are you crazy"
"Man, you should've stayed back down in the South"
Well I didn't know what they were talking about, look out now

C'mon baby
Oh yeah
Woo!
C'mon
That's right
Bring it back now

Now I've got my home and family
And another little nephew on the way
Now I've got my home and family
And another little nephew on the way
Well for that I should be thankful
So I pray five times a day
Yes I do, alright now
Goodbye
