Happy birthday Anthea! MD, Wendy, wrote and sang a parody of ‘The Lady is a Tramp’ (below) which was great fun. She likes her wine, this friend of mine I think it’s fair to say No matter if it’s red or white She likes it anyway And yes, she likes a fag or two, she thinks it’s really ace She says it’s the fags and the wine, that keeps her voice in bass And airs and graces aren’t her cup of tea,…
