Dick’s Dickie Bow Tie

Dick’s Dickie Bow Tie stood out in the choir as one of the most colourful and extravagant bow ties any of the singers could ever hope to wear. Unlike the other cravats (which were plain, black and quite flat) it span around and flashed lights. As the tenors hit the low notes, the dickie bow tie dropped down and then jumped back up with the contraltos as they tunefully sang “Doe – Rah – Me – Far – So – La – Tee – Doe”. The dickie bow tie bounced around with every deep breath the choir singers took – and strangled the bass. After months and months of dress rehearsals, the dickie bow tie was one of the best musicians in the orchestra. When the big bass drum banged loudly, the dickie bow tie soon became unknotted and knotted again – it stood to attention when music played, waving like a flag. Dick’s Dickie Bow Tie was the most colourful and extravagant dickie bow tie any of the singers could ever hope to wear – it had pink and yellow spots in places and red and blue stripes in others. Dick’s dickie bow tie was the talk of the town … every time that music played, the dickie bow jumped up and down.
