 BRAEMAR CHINESE RESTAURANT

I went to a Chinese restaurant to buy a loaf of bread

[hands slice loaf]

He wrapped it up in a five pound note and this is what it said

[wrapping up loaf, show five fingers, one finger reads other palm]

My name is Elvis Presley, I'm a movie star

[Slick back hair, turn camera crank handle]

I do the Hippy Hippy Shakey, and I play the guitar

[Dance, play air gultar]

All the boys are speedy and the girls are dancey

[Running, dancing]

Sitting in the tuck shop, drinking chocolate

[Drinking]

Where's your father? In the Bothy

[Peer about, point]

Eating panini, drinking coffee

[Eating, drinking]

He feels a bit sleepy and he goes to bed

[Drowsy, then asleep]

We sent her for a snow plough she came back with a cow [moo]
