    Macca broke down at the services
    He wept and cried and howled
    'Oh God, what am I to do?' he screeched
    But The Almighty only scowled
    'You've riches galore and fame and wealth
    And Henri's adulation.
    So your car is broke and your voice is shot
    Just beat it and head for the station'

    Macca set off with heavy heart
    He didn't know what to do
    When a car drew up and a voice cried out
    'Macca, is it really you?
    I'm Henri, you must have heard of me
    Along with my pal Bryan B
    Every night without fail I ask for your songs
    While the nation eats its tea

    So Macca went home to Henri's house
    A veggie meal prepared
    They chatted and ate, Henri's cup overflowed
    Then finally he dared
    'Will you sing for me, Macca, you'd make my day
    The piano's there you'll see'
    Oh sorry, said Macca hastily, it's time I was off
    Just call a taxi for me

  3. This McCartney incident. Is it the one where he filled up with diesel instead of petrol (or vice versa) in Dumbarton?

    1. Nope. Him, Linda and the weans were heading up to Southend, Mull of Kintyre when the Merc W123 Estate went kaputt on the A82 aka the Boulevard at Drumry Road roundabout Clydebank. They were sitting there so long the "Post" managed to get a reporter & photographer out to the scene! People were making up flasks of tea etc. Poor Macca.

  4. "Taxi be damned," our Henri swore,
    "I've locked the front door fast."
    "Get your arse behind that piano.
    Your back catalogue's unsurpassed."
    "Before you leave this house tonight
    Until I've had enough.
    You'll play the whole White Album
    (though Miller thinks it's duff."

  7. Enough material surely for "The Bryan Burnett Fan Club Poetry Anthology". A companion volume "The Thoughts of Norman Maclean" will be available when the team of translators has completed its work.
