Subject: Flanders & Swann: Sloth
From: Steffan O'Sullivan (sos@oz.plymouth.edu)

I'm looking for the lyrics to a number of Flanders & Swann songs: in particular, The Sloth. (Also the Bathtub Song is pretty high on the list . . .) Can anyone help? Many thanks,

The best advice I can give (at least on this topic) is to look for "At the Drop of a Hat" and "At the Drop of Another Hat" in used record stores, preferably in a large city. Like New York. Or London.

I'm not sure this is a great deal of help, but I couldn't resist responding to another F&S fan. Good luck.

Have you heard "Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud"?

I came across the complete(?) collection of their sheet music and lyrics in a hard-back book in my local library Just a few years ago. I was smitten after hearing "The Gas-Man Cometh" on a radio nostalgia program just prior to this. Will try this old fashioned resource in a few days.

How lovely to hear that people are still familiar with F&S. I heard them in the US when I was a kid (I believe it was the At the Drop of a Hat tour.

Mud, mud glorious mud Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood So follow me, follow Down to the hollow And there we shall wallow in glorious MUD!

My dad used to sing it around the house all the time!

Does anyone remember the Cannibal Song??? I just remember the bit:

I won't eat people Eatin' people is wrong!

I'd love to find out the details on this hardcover book of F&S's lyrics, etc. -kit

The Book I took the lyrics from for Steffan was "The Songs of Flanders And Swann"

It was published in 1977 by Elm Tree Books and St George's Press, so I don't know of it's current availability. The address listed for them then was 90 Great Russell St London WC1B 3PT.

Good Luck

Benjamin
