Yes - I finally just posted number 499 ... so ...

... to celebrate ... I thought I'd offer a little joy by the way of a small song which we should all join in and sing together!

It can (sort of) be sung to the tune of Enya's "Orinoco Flow" - if you try really hard ... (Although, neither Enya or William Shakespeare should have any worries ...)

Ahem. Cough. Cough.

The Jref Anthem:

From Vancouver to Ohio
From Hokkaido to Honshu
From London Town to Sydney
To the sands of Timbuctoo
We all decide to do it ...
(... when there's better things to do!)
We all log on to Jref ...
And spend an hour or two.

We don't know why we do it
But it seems the only way
To spend another evening
(..or the middle of the day..)
Typing all our hearts out
as we join the merry fray.
We all log into Jref
... and try to have our say...

(Chorus)
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!

So ... we snicker and we bicker,
We whine and moan and chuckle.
We let out many secrets
(... some: ... pretty near the knuckle!)
We ask bloody silly questions and
We say damned silly things.
And sometimes we get steamed up...
If we find that something stings!

And that can sometimes happen ... !
'Cause we're funny sort of folks.
We have all sorts of backgrounds
And have different sortsa jokes!
(We got Brits and Yanks and Belgians,
We got Aussies, Kiwis, Dutch.
We've got Japanese and Russians
... and Welsh and Scots and such...)

[( A few bars of 'Instrumental Interlude')
Synthesizer goes:

“Boomtcha .... Boomtcha, Boomtcha ... Boomtcha,
Boomtcha .... Boomtcha, Boomtcha ... Boomtcha.”]


(Chorus – fade in with final bars from synthesizer ...)

Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!

So why did I join Jref?
I'm buggered if I know!
(As Frank would say ... it's beats the heck
Of shovelling the snow!)
But meeting all you folks here,
(Adversaries and mates ...)
Has sort of made it worth it...
It's opened up the gates ...

To seeing many points of view
And life across the seas
... by sitting at this keyboard
And bashing on these keys.
And so I try to contribute ...
I think I sometimes can .....
....and one day ... I might make a post....
....that's all about ...
.....Japan ... ?

(Final Chorus – Complete with Synthesizer going flat out ...!)

Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!
Jref rules, Jref rules, Jref rules!

Yo, Sensuikan-san! Can I be your agent? I can see this song going all the way to the top of the Billboard charts! You've definitely got talent, my friend!

:D 👍

Sen-san, you are a lyrical genius! Can I hear a flute accompaniment? 👍

Private Joke for Tsuyoiko, Folks! Nobody else is to read this .

I did mention it to Ian... but he just said ... "F.O.!" (So -don't bother to switch on the speakers. Shame, really.)

What do you expect from someone from Blackpool?

( I also have a letter from Dublin - I think it's from Enya's lawyer -but I haven't opened it yet ...)

ニ淡ニ停?。ニ停?
