Hey, don't stop.

Do as you're told!

I don't take orders.

If you were my son...

I ain't.

He started it!

I'll finish it too!

The neighbours!

Bugger the neighbours!

Any more lip from you and I'll...

Leave him alone, Bert!

Everybody sing along

Let's all sing

When any little thing

goes wrong

Do-da-lay, do-da-loo

Sing for me

that simple tune...

You'll ruin your eyes

with all that reading.

He only wants a bit of respect.

He orders me around

like he owns the place.

He pays rent.

So do I.

He pays more.

He gets more.

What did you say?

Where are you going?

Movies.

"Come, gentle night

Come, loving, black-brow'd night

"Give me my Romeo.

"When he shall die take him

and cut him out in little stars.

"He'll make heaven so fine,

the world will love night

"And pay no worship

to the garish sun."

Isn't that beautiful, Mum?

It's a lovely story.

It's so sad.

You've read it?

No.

Heard it on the radio once.

That'll have to do, or I'll be late.

Enjoy yourself.

Huh!

Enjoy myself?!

Playing piano

for a bunch of drunks!

Will you be late?

Who knows?

I am doing this ALL for you.

Can I go to the pictures?

Alright, dear.

Sorry, ladies and gentlemen,

but the house is full.

Is there any standing room?

No standing room. Try again tomorrow.

I've waited an hour.

Try tomorrow.

Wait! I was in front of them!

Come on. I've been standing here...

Excuse me.

Will you be getting 'Rock Around

the Clock' back again any time?

Doubt it. Didn't like it.

It was really popular.

Not with normal people.

Thanks.

I've seen it three times, anyway.

Me too!

I'm Brownie.

And you're Lola?

I'm only delivering telegrams

till I can get a job on a ship.

My grandfather was a sailor -

Norwegian.

My father is too,

but he's American.

I thought that he was...

God, no!

That's not my father.

That's Bert.

My father's away.

Mmm... So is mine.

I was born here.

After the war, my father

took us back to the States - Seattle.

He was mostly at sea.

One day he didn't come back.

My mum gets homesick

for this place.

My mother teaches piano

and plays in pubs.

We move round a lot.

I read lots of books.

So do I!

I love books!

'Call of the Wild'...

I just read 'Anne of Green Gables'...

'Cruel Sea'...

'Wuthering Heights' is my favourite.

You've read 'Romeo and Juliet'?

Who's that by?

William Shakespeare.

No.

Oh, rock'n'roll!

Yeah!

Little Richard!

What about Bill Haley?

Gene Vincent!

The Platters!

Wait - Jerry Lee Lewis!

Goodness gracious,

great balls of fire!

I HATE BUNDABERG!

Those kids are called

bodgies and widgies.

There's tons of them in Brisbane.

There's none in this burg.

We could be the first.

Yeah!

We'd have to dance like that, though.

Lucille, you won't do

your sister's will

She's a lovin' mama

but I got nerves of steel

Lucille, please come back

where you belong

Lucille, please come back

where you belong

I'm begging you, baby,

please don't leave me alone

Woke up this morning

Lucille was not in sight

I asked my friends about her

but all their lips were tight

Lucille, please come back

where you belong

Lucille, please come back

where you belong

I'm begging you, baby,

please don't leave me alone

Woke up this morning

Lucille was not in sight

I asked my friends about her

but all their lips were tight

Lucille, please come back

where you belong

I'm begging you, baby,

please don't leave me alone...

Woke up this morning

Lucille was not in sight

I asked my friends about her

but all their lips were tight

Lucille, please come back

where you belong.

In the hotel lounge!
