Song Lyric Sunday ~ Celeb

Song Lyric Sunday

This week Jim asks us to post a song that includes a famous person. There are loads to choose from, but I have to go with the goofy “I’m Henry the VIII, I Am” song I taught my kids when they were little. My youngest got brownie points from her teacher when she was the only fifth grader who knew it. Makes a mommy proud!

This song is actually very old, written in 1910 by Fred Murray and J.P. Weston. But I’m using a vid from the more current cover by Herman’s Hermits in 1965.

I’m Henry the 8th I am,
Henry the 8th I am, I am,
I got married to the widow next door,
She’s been married 7 times before,
And every one was a Henry (Henry),
She wouldn’t have a Willy or a Sam (no Sam)
I’m her 8th old man I Henry,
Henry the 8th I am

Second verse, same as the first!

  6. Amazing that this song is over 100 years old. I loved to sing this as a kid. It’s one of those earworm songs.
