Bob Hoskins - 26 October 1942 - 29 April 2014



Sad, sad news of the death of actor Bob Hoskins.  He had recently been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, but was recently admitted to hospital with pneumonia.  He did many amazing films, Mona Lisa, Mermaids, Long, Good Friday but my whole family enjoyed Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Plus he had a cameo role in the Jamie T video 'Sheila' (under the cut as some don't really like Jamie T, nor rap vids clogging up their LJ reader page). However, some of the lyrics are quotes from John Betjeman The Cockney Amorist






Sheila goes out with her mate stella,
It gets poured all over her fella,
Cos shes says, man he aint no better
Than the next man kicking up fuss.
Drunk, she stumbles down by a river
Screams calling London,
None of us heard her coming,
I guess the carpet weren't rolled out.

(Oh when my love, my darling,
You've left me here alone,
I'll walk the streets of London
Which once seemed all our own.

The vast suburban churches
Together we have found:
The ones which smelt of gaslight
The ones in incense drown'd)

Her lingo went from the cockney to the gringo,
Any time she sing a song, the other girls sing along
And tell all the fellas that that lady is single
A fickle way to tickle on my young mans ting.
She's up for doing what she like any day more like the night,
She ground drunk the soles that she stole/brought/borrowed.
She didnt like fights, but at the same time understood that
Fellas will be fellas till the end of time.

(Good heavens you boys, cold blooded murder of the English tongue)


Jack had a gang that he called the Many Grams,
He was known as Smack Jack the Cracker Man
In life, he was dealt some sh_t hands,
But the boys got the back now.
And Jay went the same way as Mickey and Dan
A pen to mans upon the arrow wans
And man Lisa had a baby with Sam,
And now Jack on his own man.
Well done Jack, glug down that cider,
You're right shes a sl_t and you never f_cking liked her.
Not like what he stopped so shocked,
Cos it turns out the last dance killed the pied piper.

Sheila goes out with her mate stella,
it gets poured all over her fella,
Cos shes says, man he aint no better
Than the next man kicking up fuss.
Drunk, she stumbles down by a river
Screams calling London,
None of us heard her coming,
I guess the carpet weren't rolled out.


(It's over man, its over) (Get out, GET OUT!!)

So this a short story bout the girl Georgina,
Never seen a worse, clean young mess.
Under stress at best, but she pleased to see ya,
With love, god bless, we lay her body to rest.
Now it all dear started with Daddys alcoholic
Light weights chinking down, numbing his brain,
And the doctor said he couldn't the heart ne'er started.

She says,
When I fall, no one catch me
Alone lonely, I'll overdose slowly
Get scared, I'll scream and shout
But you know, it wont matter she'll be passing out.
I say giggidibigidiup just another day
Another sad story, thats tragedy,
Paramedic announced death at 10.30
Rip it, up kick it, to spit up the views.

Sheila Goes out with her mate stella,
It gets poured all over her fella,
Cos shes says, man he aint no better
Than the next man kicking up fuss.
Drunk, she stumbles down by a river
Screams calling London,
None of us heard her coming,
I guess the carpet weren't rolled...

Sheila Goes out with her mate stella,
It gets poured all over her fella,
Cos shes says, man he aint no better
Than the next man kicking up fuss.
Drunk, she stumbles down by a river
Screams calling London, (London),
None of us heard her coming,
I guess the carpet weren't rolled out.



RIP Bob :-/
