TBD on Ning

So I've been singing along to the Beatles for many years now and I always get stuck on the obladi oblada song. Somewhere at the end it sounds like:

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

So really, what's up with that? "Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face....and then she's a singer with the band"....so is this a language barrier, is Desmond a transvestite or am I just missing something?

Did anyone else ever wonder about that or is it just me? Will someone enlighten me, please? I wondered it for years, now I just thought I'd ask.

I've been trying to get a mental picture of Desmond, but it's not really working for me lol. Sounds like a good explanation to me.
I just love Obladi Oblada and the rest is blah blah blah :-)
Sounds good Nina! :)
It's the drugs.
Here's the truth from Wiki Luca.....


I think this is one of those where you just disconnect the thought process and enjoy the moment.
Interesting! Thank you and the other misterious word in there turns out as "bra" hmmmm. That song gets more interesting by the moment. Now I"ve got to look up Desmond Dekker and I'll be completely informed :)
Thanks Quinn :)
Let's go to Jamaica and go dancing. Anyone up for a road trip????
