Let’s All Be Fairies

Funny, the way you find new stuff. Yesterday, we watched ‘Bullseyes and Beer: When Darts Hit Britain‘, about the history of televised darts in the UK. Well, it seemed appropriate, what with the World Professional Darts Championships having been on tv all week.

During ‘Bullseyes…’ a short black-and-white clip appeared, showing a comic duo called The Two Leslies singing a quaint old song, ‘Let’s Have a Jolly Old Game of Darts’. It appealed to our whimsical tastes. so Shana did some research.

The Two Leslies were Leslie Sarony and Leslie Holmes and they were especially popular in the 1930s and 1940s.

‘Let’s All Be Fairies’ has become one of our favourites (although loads of Leslie Sarony’s comic songs are available online if you want to hear more). Years old, but still amusing today. Now, who does that remind you of 🙂
