Sketchbook Re-discovered

(Sung to the Tune 'Lollipop' by Mika)

I was looking on the shelf one day
For some skirts I had cut in May
When to my great surprise
shirt appeared before my eyes!


Cut too much and forget to label and you're gonna miss the size
Cut too much and forget to label and you're gonna miss the size
OH YES
OH YES
Then you're gonna kick your self
OH YES
OH YES
Then you're gonna kick your self


Tiny seams I will have to sew
To give Son his room to grow
Longer cuffs and high neck band
Will add pomp to the collar stand

Big seams built in save the day Thank you O+S
Big seams built in save the day Thank you O+s

OH YES
OH YES
Or I 'd have been in the pooh
OH YES
OH YES
Or I'd have been in the pooh



Feeling tired I should really stop
Wanna do the collar before I drop
Collar down neat,collar up bold
The yellow goes under the fold

Always check before you sew or you're gonna stuff it up
Always check before you sew or you're gonna stuff it up 

OH YES
OH YES
The collar's on the wrong way round
OH YES
OH YES
The collars on the wrong way round


Well I sat down and had a big cry!
Then my Son came walking by
'Hey Mum,there's is no need to sob,
that collar is just the job' 

The collar can stay,he likes the look,Thank God for groovy sons
The collar can stay,he likes the look,Thank God for groovy sons

OH YES
OH YES
Cause it can stay that way
OH YES
OH YES
He likes it just that way
OH YES
OH YES
I'm not changing it any way!



Apologies to Mika

  1. Nothing like a catchy song to get you through the stress of sewing :-)
    I love the look of the shirt, with the contrast, it will be handsome on him.
