This man was a laborer, and in vacuum cleaner sales.
He came a long way from Pontypridd in South Wales.
From humble beginnings as Thomas Jones Woodward,
Tom Jones has been one of the greatest singers heard.
With the early sixties British Invasion,
he became an entertainment sensation.
With his Edwardian billowing shirts and tight breeches on stage,
among his fans, Jones has been quite the rage.
Hit songs “It’s Not Unusual” and “Green Green Grass of Home” brought success.
Other hits include “Delilah”, “Love Me Tonight”, and “Daughter of Darkness”.
Jones once had his own television show.
He became a star millions of people would know.
He has always been a prominent man on the scene.
His career was topped with knighthood by the Queen.
Tom Jones has set a fine example in his day.
His fabulous career continues up to today.
Thanks to Tom Jones' website and wikipedia.org for the information I obtained to write this poem.
