THE TEENAGES COMEING OF AGE 1950s!Way back in the 1950's, teenagers, idle youths
Music, they could not relate to at all
The, someone, just who none know, just who!
Had a guitar, he were the only one who had one
Plaid it, playing, the tunes of the day
Creating own music, creating songs, writing them down
His pals,mates, felt left out, itched, to play something
Be apart of it, one took his mums, washing board made of glass
With ripples in the glass, with a thimbls on his fingers, ran them up and down
In tune with his mate playing his guitar
Another mate, took an old tea chest, attached a broom handle, strong string, later
A fourth, lined, different sizes empty tin cans, with sticks, taps out the beat!
Elastic, THEY HAD A BAND! they played there music, to their harts content!
The Ternagers Coming of age! Popular known skiffle bands! Teenage music!
Teenage music, that The Qurrymen, later The Beatles, emerged from, the 1960's
And all that!
