Barry And Freda (Let's Do It)

Album: Real Life - The Songs (1997)

Songfacts®:

  • Although it has nothing in common with the Cole Porter standard, this Victoria Wood composition is just as suggestive. Also known as "The Ballad Of Barry & Freda" with or without the ampersand and "The Ballad OF Barry & Freda (Let's Do It)," it is a comedy number performed at the piano, Barry and Freda being any middle-aged couple who have lost their passion for sex... well, he has, and she has numerous suggestions for how they should rekindle it, at this very moment. >>
