    Winwood's subsequent video (if you see the same as me) with Clapton is very good.

    The lyrics I have are:

    My daddy was the family bassman
    My mamma was an engineer

    If you mean mother's little helpers … then they get her through a busy day

    Not quite. It's a quote from the lyrics of a song. A very well known song in my life's experience. '67 I think.

    Not quite? well, I shall keep thinking about it ...

    One for you (and don't google it) .. where is the work never done but there's always something new ?

    similar vintage - 66 or 67... I saw the writer of this song in concert with both Dusty Springfield and Jimi Hendrix (on his first British concert tour)

    Sounds like "Matthew and Son".

    If it is, I'll relate a story about '67 and my time on my first big job.

    I just walked away from the keyboard singing "and the pills that mother gives you don't do anything at all"

    That'd be Grace's "White Rabbit"

    Yes it is.

    Going back to my first big job, I was assisting in surveying a major site we had at Gamble Hill in Leeds with two engineers from Head Office in Nottingham.

    The lyrics were something like:

    "Simms Sons and Cooke, we don't give a ****, we're never ever there. We start at eight but we're always late, for Simms Sons and Cooke, cause they can wait. There's a two hour break which we always take for a pint of cool bitter and a 'T' bone steak!"

    Funny what you remember after 50 years.

    Another from the 60s (which few of us remember):

    One, two, three, four.............................?
