I mean to change my name Bloggs to Bloggini



Just because...

...we played it this afternoon, as part of our esoteric musical soiree to welcome Al and Mark as guests to the extensive gardens here at Dolores Delargo Towers - it's our beloved Patricia Routledge! She Wants to Sing in Opera, apparently:



I'm getting so tired of these comedy songs
I want to sing something divine
I'm sure that I'm certain to shine
As a star in the opera line
I simply love Wagner, Mozart, Puccini
Their music is really tip-top
So I mean to change my name Bloggs to Bloggini
And see if I can't get a ‘shop'.

I want to sing in Opera
I've got that kind of voice
I'd always sing in Opera
If I could have my choice
Signor Caruso
Told me I ought to do so
That's why I want to sing in op'ra
Sing in op-pop-pop-popera Hurrah.

I want to play Carmen I just love the part
The music's so awfully sweet
And all prima donnas I beat
If in Faust I played fair Marguerite
I'd warble and trill like a human canary
In recitative or duet
But managers seem to be just a bit wary
My chance hasn't happened as yet.

I want to sing in Opera
I've got that kind of voice
I'd always sing in Opera
If I could have my choice
Signor Caruso
Told me I ought to do so
That's why I want to sing in op'ra
Sing in op-pop-pop-popera Hurrah.


I think she passes the audition, don't you?

  1. Never seen this, thanks! Imagine, she is now 86 years old - I just hope she's not still being bothered by people calling her to order Chinese food...

    1. She defines "national treasure" - yet, shockingly, not yet a Dame... Jx

    1. She is such a wonderful all-round entertainer - I would love to get a copy of her Presenting Patricia Routledge: Singing the Classics CD, but it's rarer than hen's teeth, it seems... Jx
