Day 255: Herman's Hermits

Monday, September 12, 2011

Remember Herman's Hermits? "Mrs Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter"? "I'm 'enery the Eighth, I Am"? There was a time I knew all five of their names. Oh, I could look it up, but it's late.

The song that's been in my head the last twenty minutes or so is "No Milk Today." That was one of HH's, tho I don't know if they originated it or not. As it happens, they weren't the first to sing about 'enery - some British comedian wrote it and had a comic hit with it long before they recorded it. I guess they were the first to have an international hit with it, tho.

But I digress.

For those of you who remember the song, substitute the lyrics "No Blog Tonight." 'cause there ain't, as I ran out of time. (And for those of you who don't know or don't remember the song, I bet YouTube has it somewhere, and I'd look it up but - it's late, lol.)

Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    Herman's Hermits...the only name I remember was the frontman, Peter Noone. They were the first band I saw live in concert when I was (mumble, mumble) years old! I loved the British Invasion period of my life!

    I remember the band (sorry, not the band members) but, I didn't recall that song. Of course, I checked it out on You-Tube...still didn't recall it. But, I did remember: I'm into Something Good, Can't You Hear My Heartbeat, Mrs. Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter, .I'm Henry the VIII, I Am, & There's a Kind of Hush (All Over the World)...loved those songs from my youth! Thanks for reminding me... emoticon

    The lyrics were:
    No milk today, my love has gone away
    The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn
    No milk today, it seems a common sight
    But people passing by don't know the reason why

    How could they know just what this message means
    The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
    How could they know the palace there had been
    Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

    No milk today, it wasn't always so
    The company was gay, we'd turn night into day

    But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
    A terraced house in a mean street back of town
    Becomes a shrine when I think of you only
    Just two up two down

    No milk today, it wasn't always so
    The company was gay, we'd turn night into day
    As music played the faster did we dance
    We felt it both at once, the start of our romance

    How could they know just what this message means
    The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
    How could they know a palace there had been
    Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

    No milk today, my love has gone away
    The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn

    But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
    A terraced house in a mean street back of town
    Becomes a shrine when I think of you only
    Just two up two down

    No milk today, my love has gone away
    The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn
    No milk today, it seems a common sight
    But people passing by don't know the reason why

    How could they know just what this message means
    The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
    How could they know a palace there had been
    Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

    No milk today, it wasn't always so
    The company was gay, we'd turn night into day

    But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
    A terraced house in a mean street back of town
    Oh all that's left is a place dark and lonely
    A terraced house in a mean street back of town
    Oh all that's left is a place dark and lonely
    A terraced house in a mean street back of town

    Loved that group and their music---much better than the Beatles in my opinion---but I never was a Beatles fan---know you are though.
