Subject: Lyr Add: LONG UNDERWEAR (Heath, Fletcher, Marr)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 06 Jun 24 - 11:04 PM

From the sheet music at Baylor University:


IF YOU’RE OLD FASHIONED YOU’RE
LONG UNDERWEAR

Words and music by Bobby Heath, Archie Fletcher & Alex Marr, 1926.

1. There’s a brand-new saying that is going ’round—
Funny little saying the girls and boys have found.
At each dance or party, all that you will hear
Is the crazy little word; it’s ringing in your ear:

CHORUS 1: Long underwear, long underwear,
That’s the crazy little word that you hear ev’rywhere.
If you are old-fashioned, someone will declare
You’re a joke, an old slowpoke; you’re just long underwear.

2. Girlies with long dresses, they have seen their day.
Pretty golden tresses, all have gone to stay.
Good old-fashioned waltzers that were once in style,
If they were around today, we’d say with a smile:

CHORUS 2: Long underwear, long underwear,
Take off those old-fashioned clothes and toss them in the air.
Learn to do the Charleston, then boy-bob your hair.
Be in style and wear a smile, but not long underwear.

I grew up ... begging for stories about my parent's childhood. I was unlike the city I knew. They grew up in the dry-lands.

One story, concerned a local Russian immigrant family, in fact lots of stories about that family.

Every fall the children would be sewed/stiched into woolen, drop-seat, long-handle, underwear. They would be "released" in the spring.

I heard a similar story from a Slave family's parents, from when they were still in "the old country. As punishment, they had to walk over dried peas on the floor, in their woolen underwear, in front of neighbor girls.

Sincerely

The fine line between culture bowl of soup vs salad, is awkward. A young boy was observed, in school with deep bruises. He had been treated for influenza by his family. "Coining" is when a silver coin is rubbed/massaged deeply parallel to the lymphatic system

From: Jim Dixon
Date: 02 Jun 24 - 02:44 PM

Another transcription from a recording on YouTube:


KEEP YOUR UNDERSHIRT ON
Words by Bert Kalmar, music by Harry Ruby.
As recorded by Jason Graae and Paige O’Hara, accompanied by Glenn Mehrbach on piano, on the various-artists album “Keep Your Undershirt On,” Rialto Recordings SLRR9001, 1989.

Tell me: why is it when you’re near,
Passion just overcomes me?
Something about you numbs me.
Tell me: why do I feel so queer
Every time you appear?
I get like this:
Wanna hug and kiss.

Curb your emotion; don’t go off your nut.
I’ve got a notion I could love you, but
Don’t get excited; keep your undershirt on.

Maybe I’ve got stuff you admire, sis.
Baby, I’m hot stuff; so remember this:
Don’t get excited; keep your undershirt on

I always let the girls kiss me,
If they like it and they like it.
After I leave ’em, they’re total wrecks.
Oh, baby, I’m just full of sex.

Though you’ll upset me, that’s a chance I’ll take.
Go on and pet me, but for heaven’s sake,
Don’t get excited; keep your undershirt on.

I’ve a nature that’s far from cold.
My love is so intensive,
It makes me apprehensive.
I fear if it should get a hold,
I couldn’t be controlled.
I’d do a few
Things I shouldn’t do.

Curb your emotion; don’t go off your nut.
I got a notion I could love you, but
Don’t get excited; keep your undershirt on.

I’ve no objection to a hug or two.
I like affection, but I’m warning you:
Don’t get excited; keep your undershirt on.

I always let the boys kiss me,
If they like it, and they like it.
I’m wise to all the tricks that they spring.
My mother told me everything.

Though you’ll upset me, that’s a chance I’ll take.
Go on and pet me, but for heaven’s sake,
Don’t get excited; keep your undershirt on.

I always let the girls kiss me,
If they like it, and they like it.
After I leave them, they’re total wrecks.
Oh, baby, you’re just full of sex.

Though you’ll upset me, that’s a chance I’ll take.
Go on and pet me, but for heaven’s sake,
Don’t get excited; keep your undershirt on.
Curb your emotion and keep your undershirt on.

The song was written for the musical comedy “Top Speed” which was performed as a Broadway play in 1929 and as a film in 1930. In the play, it was sung as a duet by Lester Allen and Ginger Rogers; in the film it was sung by Joe E. Brown and Laura Lee; however, it was cut before release in the United States.

The song’s lyrics are printed in the published script of the play “Animal Crackers” starring the Marx Brothers. “Animal Crackers” was performed as a play in 1928 and adapted as a film in 1930. According to the script, it was to be sung as a duet by Captain Spaulding (played by Groucho Marx) and Mrs. Rittenhouse (played by Margaret Dumont). However, I do not find “Keep Your Undershirt On” listed in any description of the play or the film.

For a peculiar view on western culture today ...

Look up "Go Commando" song lyrics.

Many dozens will fall in your lap.

I'm not wearing underwear today
No, I'm not wearing underwear today
Not that you probably care
Much about my underwear
Still nonetheless I gotta say:
That I'm not wearing underwear todaaaaaay.

SEMPER UBI - SUB UBI
(trans = Always Wear Under Wear ... aka play on word Where)

2021 original musical production of Moonshine Abbey
by Backman and Kowalczyk
performed in St. Paul, MN "Missed the Boat Theatre"
directed by Mary Shaffer.



(Pious - Gregorian Chant Style)


Semper ubi,
Sub ubi,
Et tu uquae.
(repeat)

Semper rae corpus.
Semper deus
Ummm, ummm, day uuuuu.

(burlesque trombone vamp to piano)

There is no talking in the chapel,
There is no talking anywhere.
There is no eating in between meals.

The chapel is secure
We always say our prayer,
Is there something under there?
Under where?
Under there?

There's no napping in the abby,
We hardly sleep at all
We never speak to women
We never have phone calls
(She called me!l)

There's no magazines or papers
We have left the world alone
No smoking,
No drinking,
No thinking about your home

Hora, by hora, there is no smiling here,
Always work and never play
Is there something under there?
Under where?
Under there!

We always keep our heads down
Our feet are always there
Our habits are of coarse wool

I know your habits made of wool
And your feet are always there
But what do you wear under there?
Under where?
Underwear!

Just remember this one rule
And there is nothing left to say
Semper ubi,
Sub ubi,
Semper ubi quae

Always wear underwear
Always and everywhere
Always wear underwear

Always wear underwear
Always and everywhere
Always wear underwear

(chorus line formation vamp)

Is there something over there?
Is there something over there?
Is there something over there?

Is there something in the air?
In the Abby in a prayer
Is there something over there?

There IS something over there
Over where?
Under where?
There IS something over there

UNDERPANTS
As recorded by Bob Cheevers on “Fifty Years” 2017.

VERSE 1: Well, maybe it was somethin’ in the water
From the town of my youth
That accounts for the weird little habit
Some folks called uncouth.
It started back in high school
And continues today.
My thing about undergarments
Got a little carried away.

CHORUS: Underpants, underpants,
I love my girlfriend’s underpants.
Underpants, underpants,
I just love my girlfriend’s underpants.
I dig through her dirty clothes ever’ time I get the chance,
Try ’em on, do a little dance.
Yeah, I love my girlfriend’s underpants.

VERSE 2: I was never really much into baseball;
Had other things on my mind:
Thinkin’ about my girlfriend
And what covered her behind.
I had this reputation.
It was hard to explain.
I was born with this condition
Called lingerie on the brain. CHORUS

BRIDGE: The first time she dropped her linen
In the hamper on the bathroom floor,
I just stood there a-grinnin’.
I had this feelin’ I’d never had before.

Brought on by … CHORUS.

The Scotsman - Bryan Bowers
written by Mike Cross

Well, a Scotsman clad in kilt left a bar one evening fair,
And one could tell by how he walked that he'd drunk more than his share.
He fumbled 'round until he could no longer keep his feet,
And he stumbled off into the grass to sleep beside the street.

Chorus: Ring ding diddle iddle ay dee oh,
Ring di diddly ay oh,
(repeat last line of previous verse)

About that time two young and lovely girls just happened by,
One says to the other with a twinkle in her eye:
"See yon sleeping Scotsman, so strong and handsome built?
I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt!"

(Chorus)

They crept up on that sleeping Scotsman quiet as could be;
Lifted up his kilt about an inch so they could see.
And there, behold, for them to view beneath his Scottish skirt,
Was nothin' more than God had graced him with upon his birth.

(Chorus)

They marvelled for a moment, then one said: "We must be gone.
Let's leave a present for our friend before we move along."
As a gift they left a blue silk ribbon tied into a bow,
Around the bonnie star the Scot's kilt did lift and show.

(Chorus)

Now the Scotsman woke to nature's call, and stumbled towards the trees.
Behind the bush he lifts his kilt, and gawks at what he sees.
And in a startled voice he says, to what's before his eyes,
"Oh, lad I don't know where ye been, but I see ye won first prize!"

(Chorus)

Not a song...but certainly germane to ths thread.

I have a "hobby" of fixing half century old UK machinery in the USA.

It is a challenge...and frequently, as the covers come off, I am reminded of the Lawrence Ferlinghetti 1955 poem, "Underware."

  I didn't get much sleep last night

  thinking about underwear

  Have you ever stopped to consider

  underwear in the abstract

  When you really dig into it

  some shocking problems are raised

  Underwear is something

  we all have to deal with

  Everyone wears

  some kind of underwear

  Even Indians wear underwear

  Even Cubans

  wear underwear

  The Pope wears underwear I hope

  Underwear is worn by Negroes

  The Governor of Louisiana

  wears underwear

  I saw him on TV

  He must have had tight underwear

  He squirmed a lot

  Underwear can really get you in a bind

  Negroes often wear white underwear

  which may lead to trouble

  You have seen the underwear ads

  for men and women

  so alike but so different

  Women's underwear holds things up

  Men's underwear holds things down

  Underwear is one thing

  men and women have in common

  Underwear is all we have between us

  You have seen the three-color pictures

  with crotches encircled

  to show the areas of extra strength

  and three-way stretch

  promising full freedom of action

  Don't be deceived

  It's all based on the two-party system

  which doesn't allow much freedom of choice

  the way things are set up

  America in its underwear

  struggles thru the night

  Underwear controls everything in the end

  Take foundation garments for instance

  They are really fascist forms

  of underground government

  making people believe

  something but the truth

  telling you what you can or can't do

  Did you ever try to get around a girdle

  Perhaps Non-Violent Action

  is the only answer

  Did Gandhi wear a girdle

  Did Lady Macbeth wear a girdle

  Was that why Macbeth murdered sleep

  And that spot she was always rubbing

  Was it really in her underwear

  Modern Anglo-Saxon ladies

  must have huge guilt complexes

  always washing and washing and washing

  Out damned spot

  Underwear with spots very suspicious

  Underwear with bulges very shocking

  Underwear on clothesline a great flag of freedom

  Someone has escaped his underwear

  May be naked somewhere

  Help

  But don't worry

  Everybody's still hung up in it

  There won't be no real revolution

  And poetry’s still the underwear of the soul

  And underwear still covering

  a multitude of faults

  in the geological sense

  strange sedimentary stones, inscrutable cracks

  For does not the body stay alive

  after death and still need its underwear

  or outgrow it

  some organs are said to reach full maturity

  only after the head stops holding them back

  If I were you I'd keep aside

  an oversize pair of winter underwear

  Do not go naked into that good night

  And in the meantime

  keep calm and warm and dry

  No use stirring ourselves up prematurely

  over Nothing

  Move forward with dignity

  hand in vest

  Don't get emotional

  And death shall have no dominion

  There's plenty of time my darling

  Are we not still young and easy

  Don't shout.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle
have you ever witnessed married morman men's underware in the loc
ker room?

UNDERWEAR - Barry Louis Polisar
As recorded by Barry Louis Polisar on "Off-Color Songs for Kids" (1983)

CHORUS: Underwear is everywhere but mostly underneath.
Usually, you can't see what goes on beneath
Ragged clothes or evening gowns or the finest three-piece suit.
Underwear is everywhere; there is no substitute.

Everyone is equal when it comes to underwear,
Because beneath your underwear it's just yourself that's there.
Everyone wears underwear -- or at least they should.
Underwear is lots of things, but mostly it is good. CHORUS

Some like the feel of cotton. I share this belief.
Likewise, I don't like boxer shorts; give me a pair of briefs.
Some don't like to talk about it; that's because they're shy.
People laugh at underwear, but I do not know why. CHORUS

"Now don't use bleach on underwear." That's what my mom will say.
"Cause bleach will eat the fabric and soon they'll wash away."
Underwear with lots of holes is a sorry sight,
Look around and try to see who's wearing theirs too tight! CHORUS TWICE

There’s Stan Boreson’s song WALKING IN MY WINTER UNDERWEAR, sung to the tune of WINTER WONDERLAND. Do I need to tell you...? He sings it in his comically thick Norwegian accent, so it comes out “valking ... vinter ...”

I'm surprised this little ditty has not been included on here, sung in Cornwall in the 1970s:

We break up! We break up!
We don't care if the school blows up.
No more English, no more French
No more sitting on the old school bench.
Teacher! Teacher! We don't care,
If we see your underwear;
Is it black or is it white;
Oh my gar its dynamite!

Not sure where it is from - French was certainly NOT a subject at our primary school. I suspect older siblings at Redruth grammar school.

Ed Pickford once wrote a song entitled 'You Can't Wear Your Knickers at Ascot' as a response to a ban on hot pants at the race meeting.
Then there's 'The Tailor's Britches', where the tailor swaps clothes with his dance partner and is left only her petticoat to preserve his modest, which eventually falls to the ground:
revealing for all of the others to see,
Just what it was that endeared you to me (another song)

And last but not least:

I know a girl in Waterloo,
She don't wear no - yes she do.

I know a girl in Berkley Square,
She don't wear no underwear

I know at least one person who thought that "Rose of Allendale" had a reference to bras...

"One maidenform withstood the storm".

And from the late and very great Monty Parkin, this parody:

I wore my pants from Marks and Spencers
And made pretences that they would do
But in my mind I felt contrary,
They were too lairy, not a nice plain blue.

Far, far away, my wife's aunt Elsie,
Who lived near Chelsea, sent them to me.
And so I sat, through the Christmas season,
With my new undies on, and watched TV.

A crashing bore, the same old drag,
When it was done I grabbed a bag,
I went down to Marks and Spencers,
I was not alone.....

'May I return these pants, please, missus,
They're all right for sissies, not for us real men.'
She looked at me, a trifle weary,
'I suppose so, deary', and I went home again.

Give me my dull old pants, give me my dull old pants,
Give me my dull old pants, give me my dull old pants.

This was written for Monty's weekly spot on Radio Kent, but perhaps understandably they thought it might offend the original noble composer, and vetoed it. I still trot it out every January, though.

Meantime, here's a clip from Lawrence Welk of (the young) Boreson doing a straight "Winter Wonderland" and then segueing into "Uncle Torvald's way of singing it". And here's one of yust the Scandihoovian version by another singer, from Minnesota (Boreson is from Seattle; I always think of him as being from Ballard, because of the accent, but the fact is he went to Roosevelt with my Aunt Annie).

I see Mary Garvey mentioned Valking in my Vinter Undervear by Stan Boreson; one of his last songs—he's not dead, but he has stopped singing for the public—is about the absence of underwear and all other attire: I Just Don't Look Good Naked Anymore. (YouTube from a 2007 video)

I'm surprised I don't see Vinter Undervear's lyrics in the database or forum. Will try to post later if nobody beats me to it.
