Learn Barry’s Little Guitar Song!

Ever wanted to learn bobble-hatted Barry’s favourite tune? Well now you can, courtesy of writer Boff Whalley.

Everyone Thinks It’s A Little Guitar But It’s Not

You don’t put your lolly on the windowsill
When it’s hot.
You don’t get your bubbly without putting your ha’penny
In the slot.

People seem to know a lot of things, but …
Everyone thinks it’s just a little guitar
But it’s not.

You don’t buy shoes with laces if you can’t
Tie a knot.
You can’t buy a sixpenny bar
If a penny’s all you’ve got.

People seem to know a lot of things, but …
Everyone thinks it’s just a little guitar
But it’s not.

Solo!

You don’t keep weeing in the night without
Emptying the pot.
And you don’t have a wee without the light on
If you’re not a good shot.
People seem to know a lot of things, but …

Everyone thinks it’s just a little guitar
But it’s not.
