Authentic 1920s - 1930s
Greg Poppleton is totally untouched by current music...
The Poppleton Effect
© Kerrie Foster, Illawarra Breakfast Poets
The jazz crowd, they all got excited.
Mr. Poppleton was back in town.
He brought with him first class musicians,
including his son who came down.
This lad of just fourteen was brilliant
and the spitting image of Dad.
The talent will stay in the family.
And I know you’ll agree that’s not bad.
The way that Greg moves round the audience
and picks out whoever he will,
and sings to them through his own megaphone;
you see the crowds get a thrill.
He sings songs from back in the twenties,
and he dresses in clothes from back then.
The consummate entertainer,
we could have him back time and again.
