The Boyfriend Clock

Now here’s a story – in song and in video! The boyfriend clock controlled the DNA in the Topple family of Penicuik. My fiancee, Gill Amos, is the granddaughter of Will and Helen Topple, who owned the Boyfriend Clock. They had 5 daughters – Ray, Jean, Elizabeth, Ellen and Isabel – the clock was used to eject their boyfriends so that Will and Helen could go to bed!

Here’s a download of the song … sheet music

and here it is as an mp3

…… and here’s a wee video made by Gill, that tells the story of the clock!
