Question
QUESTION: Hello. Do you know the lyrics to the song Tiny Cloud by The Elegants? I can't find them anywhere.

ANSWER: Hi.  The lyric (one song) should be this: (I hope)
Tiny tiny tiny cloud
Drifting above so high
Won't you show me please
Show me my mistake
What did I do
Did I do something to harm her

Above with your silver lining
Oh won't you take us again
Riding, flying. dancing, dining
Bring her back to us and then
Everything once more
Will be the same as before.

Oh cloud please drift on by
pushing her by you're so tough
Oh please am I asking to much
I live in agony - ooh what pain
Make my skies clear up
It always looks like rain.

Tiny tiny tiny cloud
Please don't let me down
my tiny tiny cloud
keep right on drifting around
my heart
Please drop her off in my arms

I have tried to attach the single but no luck - your e-mail to ed89ba@ntlworld.com will get you the original sound.
As you always say over there - have a nice day

Alan

QUESTION: Thanks a ton again for the reply! I know this is going to be specific, but is it "Pushing her by you're so tough" or "Pushing her by your soft tide" in the song? Again, thanks.

Answer
Wow - now you are really getting deep!

The only song I remember with a similar line - and don't please ask for the whole lyric is a 1930's song called 'Oh Peter'  It starts out with 'You're so nice' and goes on to berate him for being 'so tough' and you keep pushing me away, Oh Peter Why?.  Cannot remember a reference to the tide so maybe that's not it.  There is a later song of the same title, but that's a religious song and not the one from the 30's which was a typical Dance Band offering.  I will keep looking and listening and if I can get any more of the lyric I will come back - nil deperandum!

I stopped collecting in the late 90's when the sales of vinyl dropped off and non-music took over the charts!

Experience

DJ in 1950's working in UK and Hong Kong. Collected singles from late 40's (US imports on vinyl and UK shellac - until 1990's had over 35000 at one time - sold most to a Lottery winner but stall have 2000 plus 45's mainly. Started as a teenager in UK and was (probably) the first 'disco' type dance DJ tp use 2 turntables so that continuous music for dancing from records was available in 1952. Had a weekly programme in Hong Kong in 57 which ran for 2 years titles 'Pick Of The Pops' which somebody used later in the Uk as a title!! Made many friends in the 50's - particularly Guy Mitchell, Gale Storm and Rosie Clooney. Met many others including Pat Boone, Paul Anka and even an interview with Sinatra which was not good as he was hung-over at 10am from the night before. returned to UK in 1960 and sent interviews from here back to the Far East - early Cliff Richard, Shirley Bassey, and Roy Orbison and - sadly - Del Shannon just before he left us!

Organizations
Chair of the Twinning Group Organisation between Wakefield and the German town of Herne. I also moderate a section of a Football Forum looking after the Bundesliga thread under the name os SchalkeUK

Education/Credentials
Retired from teaching in 2009 (all high school subjects at times) but mainly French, German and Maths. Before that I had 9 years in the Royal Air Force - connected with BFBS - 14 years managing a professional Rugby Club, 15 years in Local Government before going back to teach at age 63 to 71. Hate the modern-day use of kids as researchers who rely on incorrect sources withou having been able to experience the original items - many 50's hit re-recorded for Steroe and were very poor compared to the first version but are still passed off as the correct one. I suppose I could - at times - qualify for any series dealing with 'Grumpy Old Men', but as they say c'est la vie!
