WINNER OF THE 2020 LEGAL CHRISTMAS MUSIC CONTEST 2020: LIVE ON YOUTUBE

With more than a little help from my friends the winning entry of the 2020 Legal Christmas Music Contest has been recorded and is available for everyone to see and hear (and join in) on YouTube.

THE WINNER

The song that best summed up the litigator’s experience of 2020 was judged to be “Hello, can you hear and see me”.

THE SINGERS AND MUSICIANS

Fittingly the performers are all lawyers. Kay Barnes and  Ayshea Megyery are doing the singing, Jonathan Head provided the guitar part , Spike (Simon) Mullings provided the bass part and I did the mandolin playing.  Jonathan was responsible for putting together five separate contributions and turning them into once piece.

THE WORDS: SO YOU CAN ALL JOIN IN

From Mel Clarke (Brampton Mel)

To the Tune of Hark the Herald

“Hello, can you hear and see me?

It’s Judge Bloggs on CVP”

“I can hear you Judge but sadly

You are just a big black screen”

“I’m so sorry” “Oh, that’s better”

“What’s that noise?” “My Irish Setter”

Oh, the joys of Court from Home

Skype for Business, Teams and Zoom

“Has the witness got e-bundles?

Great let’s go to nine- fourteen”.

“That’s a letter from the Claimant”

“No, that’s not the one I mean

How to find it, let me see

Oh I know – add 23

Can you go to nine-three-four?”

This trial will last for evermore

Oh the joys of Court from home,

Skype for Business, Teams and Zoom”

THE PRIZE WENT TO FOODBANKS
