Artist: Tom Jones

She’s a Lady ~ Tom Jones

Tom Jones, is a Welsh singer. He was born in Trefforest, Pontypridd, near Cardiff in Wales.

The son of coal miner, Jones began singing at an early age. He would regularly sing at family gatherings, weddings and also sang in his school choir. He was struck down by tuberculosis at the age of 13 and was subsequently bedridden for two years. It was a critical time for him, but he could do little else but listen to music and draw. At the age of 16, Jones married Linda Trenchard on 2 March 1957 and had a son named Mark, long before becoming a pop idol. Jones quit school with no qualifications and took a variety of jobs including a builder’s laborer and a door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesman.

In 1974, Jones moved to the United States, buying the mansion formerly belonging to Dean Martin in Bel-Air, Los Angeles. Despite publicized infidelities, including an affair with the dethroned Miss World of 1973, USA’s Marjorie Wallace, and a one night stand with Cassandra Peterson a.k.a. Elvira, in which he claimed her virginity, he has remained married to his wife Linda for over 50 years. In 2005 the BBC reported that Jones had amassed a fortune of £175 million. Jones also owns a 10-acre (40,000 m2) smallholding in the Welsh valleys which he uses when in Wales, and continues to tour extensively.

Jones was awarded an OBE in 1999 and made a Knight Bachelor in the 2006 New Years Honours list for his services to music and was subsequently knighted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, London on 29 March, 2006.

Well she’s all you’d ever want,
She’s the kind they’d like to flaunt and take to dinner.
Well she always knows her place.
She’s got style, she’s got grace, She’s a winner.
She’s a Lady. Whoa whoa whoa, She’s a Lady.
Talkin’ about that little lady, and the lady is mine.
Well she’s never in the way
Something always nice to say, Oh what a blessing.
I can leave her on her own
Knowing she’s okay alone, and there’s no messing.
She’s a lady. Whoa, whoa, whoa. She’s a lady.
Talkin’ about that little lady, and the lady is mine.
Well she never asks for very much and I don’t refuse her.
Always treat her with respect, I never would abuse her.
What she’s got is hard to find, and I don’t want to lose her
Help me build a mansion from my little pile of clay. Hey, hey, hey.
Well she knows what I’m about,
She can take what I dish out, and that’s not easy,
Well she knows me through and through,
She knows just what to do, and how to please me.
She’s a lady. Whoa, whoa, whoa. She’s a lady.
Talkin’ about that little lady and the lady is mine.
Yeah yeah yeah She’s a Lady
Listen to me baby, She’s a Lady
Whoa whoa whoa, She’s a Lady
And the Lady is mine
Yeah yeah yeah She’s a Lady
Talkin about this little lady
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa and the lady is mine
Yeah yeah She’s a Lady
And the Lady is mine.
