Sonia: The Tokens- The Lion Sleeps Tonight
At weekends she would put this single on while she cleaned the house. She was OCD, one of those that has to do the house top to bottom and then you can use it. She would be like ‘everyone out, I have to clean’.
I would be sent to my bedroom to play with my Barbies. It really bugged me but I did like listening to the song. You never hear it these days do you?”
