    Do you know it Chuck Berry ? My boy (9) heard it on Simpsons, promptly found it on youtube and then went in reciting parts of it to his teacher.

    I remember him singing it live on TV, on TOTP, or RSG or the like, caused a bit of a furore among viewers (or those that hadn't seen it but wanted to make a fuss, as often is the case:devil:)

    Recorded at the Locarno, Coventry iirc.
    Chuck recorded a number of songs with risqué content - just listen to 'south of the border' ;)

    Going to introduce our Granddaughters to the benefits of Mr Berry. May cause a bit of a stir somewhere.

    Ahh the innocence of him, we thought it was really funny and wondered what she must have thought when he started with it. South of the border. i think the title tells the story.
    I used to listen to it on my mams records but i got the idea i must have been older.

    I seem to recall seeing Rolf Harris drawing illustrations while Berry sang it.

    I'm guessing there's a reference dictionary for songs of this ilk?!! A mate of mine moved to Perth some years ago, and I'm sure he said he did some guitar session work for Kevin Wilson, but he's passed on now, and my search skills are hopeless.

    We saw Kevin BW and his daughter perform on his retirement tour, live songs seem to have a bit more "meat" to them than recorded :eek:
