I Wear Horn Rimmed Glasses

Album: The Singing Postman (1965)

  • This number is both autobiographical and self-explanatory. Allan Smethurst did indeed wear horn-rimmed glasses; he was rejected for National Service because of his poor eyesight. The sheet music was published in the 1966 Dick James book Songs Of The Singing Postman Allan Smethurst Souvenir Album. >>
