Some song lyrics misheard over the cafe hubbub…

But first…
Dulltown, UK/Europe: Today’s dictionary words are: tymp, harmattan, creance, isobase, atwain, and quatch-buttock. Please have these words looked up and placed in suitable sentences ready for Professor Mouldie first thing after breakfast tomorrow morning. Should the professor turn up dressed and made up as Cruella de Vil, you must not allow this to distract you from your studies.

‘Wumpty-too, calm lime the line for me.’
‘Now I have met you, I happen hippy tapes.’
‘Whoo-oo, yes I stored them too too long…’
‘I seize you every morning blue, yeah yeah!’
‘I’m made of mud and peas down the river, so.’
‘The carrots small, the wind, in a can…’
‘Hey-up, aye-aye, now you see the fish and the lemon.’
‘Baby, who care about the blee bees?’
‘I’m up the wapty, you chug coffee girl, yeah!’
‘You may fall, but she touched Walter.’
‘They were strange apes the colour of water.’
‘The ear of the cat, the ear of the cat…’
‘You my first puffball Lady White, Lady White.’
‘Tumbling dew, tumbling dew, wishoo, wishoo woo!’
‘I’m reeling in dirt, reelin’ reelin’…’
‘I’ve met your minstrels, but I seek your face again.’
‘You are beyond sighs – a long road, a long road.’
‘All that is smooth, a fabric, a walking tray…’
‘Roll me up now, check me, check me baby!…’
‘Your bleaches reveal the smile of yesterday…’

    Intriguing, weird and funny as usual. The ‘ear of the cat’ one made me go have a listen to Al Stewart’s 1976 record The Year of the Cat, which I always liked, and the other one too – Time Passages
