Leslie Ronald Young-

his original name,

but as ‘Jimmy Young’,

he was to find fame.

 

Receiving a Knighthood;

becoming Sir Jimmy Young,

and at 95, his last ballad,

now he has sung.

 

His hit ‘Unchained Melody’

reaching Number one

and ‘The Man from Laramie’

at one, also followed on.

 

Just two of many

songs we all knew,

after his first hit, ‘Too Young’,

a song we loved true.

 

As a singer he proved

to have the smoothest voice,

and as a Presenter he was

The ‘House Wives‘ choice.

 

And, as a Presenter,

he became the first of a kind,

to interview world leaders,

and easily enter their mind.

 

And for nearly 30 years

was a staple on Radio 2 –

With catchphrases a plenty,

we now say, BFN to you.

 

You were the TOPS
