Ailz just sang me a snatch of an old song. "You won't know it," she says. But of course I do. "A little mouse with clogs on?- that's Danny Kaye. No wait a minute, Max Bygraves. I was thinking it came from Hans Christian Anderson but that's Denmark and the mouse is old Amsterdam- so no connection there after all."
Now I'm going to look it up.
Well, blow me it's neither of those guys; it's Ronnie Hilton. And there's a video to go with it- a woman dancing with mice on her head. Warning: it's a bit of an earworm.
