( Please singalong if you know the words, when the time comes.... )

Granny's in the shop with Bruno.

" Bruno this box is for Mrs Stew for her brother, she'll be along to collect once she finishes work"
" Okay what's in it? "
" No idea, it's not our business, so do not touch it!" says Granny giving Bruno the Look! " I have to go to the post office to collect a very important parcel, so please mind the shop"

"Oh " says Granny on her way towards the door" One of the Gregors from the Old Rectory left his guitar behind, I have phoned and Mrs Mum , who call in later "

Having left her instructions Granny hurries out, she wants to try and get to the Post Office before it gets too busy!

She's barely left the shop before Bruno sees the box for Mrs Stew is not sealed, so he opens it and looks inside!

"A tutu and some wigs!" says Bruno holding them up " Mmm " he smiles.......

He hurries off , soon returning with music blaring out from the back room!


" I want to break free.... I want to break free... I want to break free from your lies
 your so self satisfied I don't need you ! I've got to break free.. God knows I want to break free!!! "

"He's fallen in love.. he's fallen in love for the first time this time he knows it's for reallllll.
he's got to break free ! God knows he wants to break free... "

Switching song. he continues at the top of his lungs!" Can anybody find meeeee someone to love... "

"I work hard....

" He works hard "

" Everyday of my life !
I work til I ache my bones
At the end

"at the end of the day"

"I take home all my hard earned pay on my own!

I get down (down ) on my knees(Knees)
 and I start to pray ( Praise the Lord)
Til the tears run down from my eyes
Lord somebody, somebody (Please)
Can anybody find me Somebody to love?

another switch...

"It's too late..
my time as come..
sends shivers down my spine
bodies aching all the time

"Goodbye everybody ,got to go,
gotta leave you all behind and face the truth "


"anyway the wind blows "

"I don't wanna die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.. "

( some guitar solo )

" I see a little silhouetto of a man !
Scaramouche scaramouche , will you do the fandango
Thunderbolt and lightening
very very frightening me"

" Galileo !"



Galileo figaro !

I'm just a poor boy, no body loves me !

He's just a poor boy from a poor family!
Spare him his life from this monstrosity "

"Easy come Easy go , will you let me go?"
"Bismillah! No we will not let him go (let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let him go ( let him go)
Bismillah! We will not let him go ( let him go!)
Mama mia mama mia (mama mia let me go)
Beelzebub as a devil set aside for me , for me , for meeeeeeeee"

(( lots of rocking and guitar playing... ))

Luckily no one comes into the shop 
not that Bruno would hear with the all singing so loud and the music blaring!

Granny steps into........

the quiet of the shop to find Bruno looking a little puffed out!
"Everything all right Bruno? " asks Granny
" F F Fine " puffs Bruno " J J Just be  en running about back to the shed.. storeroom and back !"

" I think I'll go have a little sit down now you are back, if that's okay Gran? "

" Yes and have some honey and lemon Bruno , your voice is very harsh ! you may be getting a cold and you don't want that at Christmas!"

Bruno says nothing and heads upstairs for a rest!



  1. Hahaha it would seem we have a little Diva in Bruno, don't we!
    He has a lovely voice though, I think his granny had better keep her eye on him or he'll be off seeking his fortune as a singer if she's not careful!

    1. He does love to sing! lol Yes poor Granny had best watch out but then if he becomes famous she could give up her shop and retire! ;) xxx

  2. Haha - not Bruno but Freddy!!!
    Enjoyed that musical interlude.

    1. Yes he loves Queen's songs :) Glad you enjoyed the music ;)

  3. Well I wasn't expecting that! Hahahahahahaa!!! Take some boiled sweets with you Bruno......I think you are going to need to suck on them to ease your sore throat.

    1. We like to keep you guessing ... :) He'll need to rest his voice after all that singing!
