It’s not very often that you see street entertainers on Brick Lane but a week or so ago, I met Derek, aka Roadrunner Top. Under the railway arch, he was performing with an amp and giving a wonderful rendition of his poetry. He beckoned me over and we had a long and very interesting chat. He had just been performing one of his works, ‘Kisses on the Sea Shore”, great stuff.
Derek hires himself out for parties and events and has just uploaded a few examples of his work on YouTube under the pseudonym ROADRUNNER TOP. Here are the words to ‘Kisses on the Sea Shore’ but for best results, click on the link below. Better still, sing along – get the wife and kids together and belt it out. I guarantee that that the infectious rhythm and enthusiasm will brighten your day.
She got your number but she won't give you a call. What is wrong? She got you hanging on 'til you sing a song. Treat her like a Baroness because if she's worth her weight, then she's worth her weight in gold.
Are you sure she's free, she might be waiting for Lee. I don't care, Lee can't do nothing to me. He has not got the heart of gold, he sold it for two p. I have still got my heart.
"Wow, you look smart in your shirt and the thanks. Do you fancy a coffee? Sure, why not?
There's a nice coffee shop in Mayfair, who's paying the fare and for the coffee too? You see, it's not all about me, it's about us, me and you together.
Do you fancy going for a 'Roller Coaster'? No, I fancy you tho'. Why? Because you got a good head on your shoulder. Who told ya? No one, I told myself that.
I want to go to the library. Why? I want to use my imagination not go home and play PlayStation. You see, you are so captivating and so desirable Darling, you are my rose bud. What could possibly be more prestigious?
If we have to, we are blessed. The bond of perfection.
