Don't jump off the roof dad.

I couldn’t help posting this song by Tommy Cooper, which I heard over Christmas.
The serious stuff starts tomorrow.


Don’t jump off the roof dad.


Daddy came home from work tired

His boss had been driving him mad.

The kids were all shouting, the dog bit him too

His dinner was nothing but boiled over stew.


I guess it was then he decided

Up to the rooftop he'd go

He was about to jump off when

The kids started howling below


'Don't jump off the roof, Dad

You'll make a hole in the yard

Mother's just planted petunias

The weeding and seeding was hard


If you must end it all, Dad

Won't you please give us a break

Just take a walk down the park, Dad

And there you can jump in the lake.'


Neil Harris

(a don’t stop till you drop production)
