Story Behind the Song

Everyone knows an ADA or FLO, especially in England..The stereo- typical Old ladies who grew up in the War, in a bygone era..stuck in the past..and soon to be extinct forever :-( It's a shame really! This is a song to all of the Ada and Flo's out there :-) Keith Allen helped me out with this one. Thanks Keith!

Lyrics

VERSE 1
Oh Ada and Flo..
They like a gossip on the bus as they go...to bingo
They're always talking 'bout their neighbours...you know
Well that's so Ada and Flo

VERSE 2
Ada and Flo..
They worked in a factory 'til they was told... to go
For 60 years living in the same old council- bungalow
Now there's nothing to show.

CHORUS
They live in a time warp.
Back in 1945
With good old Winston Churchill and... King George...
Who they wish was still alive.


VERSE 3
Ada and Flo..
Take a little trip to Blackpool , it's the only place they go
'Cos they've saved up all their money - just to sit in a row
Playing dirty fruit machines at the...dirty casino

VERSE 4
Ada and Flo..
They got their blue rinses, they both like to sew
Go ball room dancing every week
With Arthur and Joe
They love their tea and crumpet you know,

GUITAR RIFF/ INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 5
Ada and Flo..
Grew up together but they now both die alone
Nobody came to say any goodbye's at their funeral home

So it's good-bye from Ada and Flo...Goodbye Ada and Flo...Goodbye Ada and Flo
We wish you well Ada and Flo
