‘Don’t Jump Off of the Roof, Dad’

If your brain hasn’t been quite deflated by the nooze yet, here’s something that might finish the job. Listen at your own risk.

I remember this goofy song from 1961. My friends across the street had the record. My parents thought they were a bad influence on me. If you listen carefully, you might suspect that the performer, Welsh comedian Tommy Cooper, was a few screws short of an erector set.

Don’t Jump Off of the Roof, Dad was his one and only hit record. ‘Nuff said.
