Covid Island Discs
Day 42: I get knocked down, Chumawamba
This song is for all those Oak hall ski companions and the wonderful memories of fantastic ski holidays in Switzerland. One year we performed this song to these changed lyrics.
“I get knocked out but get up again and I’m still going to ski black runs.
I get knocked out but get up again and I’m still going to land on my bum.
Oh Danny boy, please slow down before you kill me..“
Danny boy was a reference to Naomi’s brother Daniel who I think had either never skied before or had skied once before this trip. Anyway, he had absolutely no fear so pretty much went from the top to the bottom of the slope with skis parallel and pretty much no turns – fast and furious one might say.
