As liriek ‘n liedjie gekomponeer en gesing deur Roger Whittaker, “Durham Town

Koor

I’ve gotta leave old Durham town x3

And the leaving’s gonna get me down.

1. Back in 1944

I remember Daddy walking out the door

Mama said he was going to war

He was leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving me

Koor

2. When I was a boy I spent my time

Sitting on the bank of the River Thyme

Watching all the ships go down the line

They were leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving me

Koor

3. Last week Mama passed away

“Goodbye son” was all she said

There’s no call for me to stay

So I am leaving, leaving, leaving, leaving free

1. Strangers in the night – Frank Sinatra (1)

Die Stones se 9de treffer. Drie van die vorige agt het No.1 gehaal.

Hierdie week se liriek is van ‘n top ‘hit’ van Cliff Richard in 1964. nl. “Constantly”. (Moontlik het ek dit al op gehad):

All day i’m walking in a dream

I think about you constantly.

Just like an ever flowing stream

Your memory haunts me constantly.

Shadows fall and I try to drive you from my mind

So you’re no longer near to me

But my heart sees you there with me

Every sunset you share  with me.

 

The rain that patters through the trees

Reminds mo of you constantly

Your name is whispered by the breeze

And love-birds bring your song to me

 

Just as sure as each star keeps burning in the sky

Your love will stay a flame in me

A flame that burns so bright

Not only through the night but constantly

Just as sure ………

………….. but constantly.

 

Though we may be far apart

You’re constantly deep in my heart. 

 

Ek het hierdie week tog meer lopies gehad as J. Kallis in Sri Lanka! Maandagmiddag een vanaf ‘n baie nat Bettiesbaai na Pringlebaai en terug. Woensdag van Robertson in die rigting van die sneeu-bedekte pieke van die Langeberge. As die weer saamspeel wil ek die week etlike lopies inkry van Port Owen deur Velddrif.

Volgende naweek se pos sal waarskynlik laat wees, aangesien ons op pad terug Pofadder toe iewers mag oornag waar daar nie opvangs is nie.

Die “Springbok Radio Hit Parade” was gebaseer op plate-verkope (‘seven singles’) en ek het tussen 1964 en 1972 dit weekliks aangeteken. Hierdie is ‘n hervatting van die weeklikse poste na ‘n jaarlange onderbreking. Die vorige week se posisie tussen hakies.

1. Strangers in the night – Frank Sinatra (1)

2. Pretty Flamingo – Manfred Mann (2)

3. Sloop John B – Beach Boys (4)

4. Pied Piper – Chrispian St. Peters (3)

5. I’m a rock – John E. Sharp (5)

6. Monday-Monday – Mamas and Papas (nuut)

7. Hold tight – Dave,Dee, Dozy,Dicky, Beaky, Mick and Tich (7)

8. Where did we go wrong – Petula Clark (nuut)

Van die vorige week het no. 3 en 4 plek geruil, terwyl die Mamas en Papas hul debuut op die Hit Parade maak. Die ander nuwe treffer was Petula Clark se derde. Down-town, haar eerste treffer was drie weke op no.1. Sy het die vroulike hoofrol gespeel in die fliek, “Goodbye Mr. Chips” .

Strangers in the night

Strangers in the night, exchanging glances

Wondering in the night, what were the chances

We’d be sharing love before the night was through.

Something in your eyes was so inviting

Something in your smile was so exciting

Something in my heart told me I must have you

Strangers in the night

Two lonely people, we were strangers in the night

Until that moment when we said our first “hallo”

Little did we know

Love was just a glance away

A warm, embracing dance away.

Ever since that night we’ve been together

Lovers at first sight, in love forever

It turned out so right

For strangers in the night.
