He's in a Restaurant
Like a club - a Musician
He's playing the organ - or the violin.
He's got a cap like a Police hat -
a cap to play.
He's 'Dulli' (tv personality), or John.
We're listening to the music.
I'm not hearing anything.
His eyes almost want to talk to you.
He's got a sweet smile, with a black moustache.
He longed to become a musician or a Prime Minister.
He's wearing a white jacket.
Dulli has been at it for a long time -
Veronica, is his wife.
He likes to eat meat and cakes
He's not fat
He likes drinking Kinnie (a national drink)
He's happy, happy go Lucky from the look in his eyes.
It was a Saturday.
He's holding his music notes under his fingers.
Santarelli for St. Helena.
He's from Birkirkara.
I used to play the violin
It was Christmas or Carnival
He was whistling a tune before
He was dancing the Twist before
Joking with the crowd
I had a cousin who played the accordion.
He was called John Vella - God rest his soul.
He will go drinking
They will go in a Bar to drink Whisky
He likes women.
He's got flowers on his shoulders and he will take them to his wife Veronica.
It's responsibility that he's got on his shoulders.
