Subject: Lyr Req: Filthy version of Sweet Peggy O'Neill
From: GUEST,JTT
Date: 06 Feb 07 - 03:37 AM

My mother used to speak wistfully of a filthy version of the saccharine love song Sweet Peggy O'Neill that she knew as a child. To her eternal regret she could only remember these lines:

I think twould be better
To use a French letter
With sweet Peggy O'Neill


If anyone has the rest of the words - well, obviously it would be an addition to the culture.

If her eyes ae China Blue , Thats Peggy O'Neill
If she likes it more than you , thats Peggy O'Neill
She may charge a tanner , she may chare a bob
It all depends on the size of your nob
Height of vulagarity , Does it for Charity
Thats Peggy O'Neill

Thats all I can remember from the NAAFI Beer Bar at Rheindalen forty odd years back !

The version my grandfather sings is:

If her drawers are navy blue, thats Peggy O'Neill
If she takes them down for you, thats Peggy O'Neill
She may charge a tenner, she may charge five bob
It all depends on the size of your knob
Some think it's better to use a french letter
On Peggy O'Neill

Don't know the rest but would love to get the full version.

There's some twits, just praise the tits, of Peggy O'Neill.
And her thighs elicit sighs. That's Peggy O'Neill.
She may charge a tanner, she may charge a bob.
It all depends on the size of your ... income.
Full of rascality, sweet personality,
That's Peggy O'Neill.

The quote above: She may charge a tenner, she may charge five bob is likely to be wrong.
A tenner is/was Ten Pounds (£10.00)
Five bob was one fourth of a pound (£0.25)
The price disparity for purchasing her affections (temporarily) seems too great.
I've always heard it as "She may charge a tanner (£0.025) she may charge a bob (£0.05)" which means the higher price is only twice the lower.

Compare with the parody of 'La Donna e Mobile'

Little boys are cheap today.
Cheaper than yesterday.
Small ones are half-a-crown*,
Standing up or lying down.
Bigger ones are three-and-six*,
'Cos they've got bigger dicks.
But little boys are cheaper,
Chee-ee-ee-per to-day

*Half-a-crown = £0.125
*Three-and-six = £0.175

Following the request above for 'filthiness'

If she pays you scant regard,
That's Peggy O'Neil
Just one smile can make you hard,
That's Peggy O'Neil.
And if she offers to give you a stroke,
And all she asks is Bacardi & Coke.
'Though she won't treasure you,
Still she will pleasure you ...
That's Peggy O'Neil

If she uses men, or toys,
That's Peggy O'Neil.
Sometimes girls, and sometimes boys.
That's Peggy O'Neil.
Then, if one day she says "I love you",
But the next she says "You just won't do." –
Impartiality,
Split personality,
That's Peggy O'Neil

Peggy O'Neill had a bike with one wheel
The frame was all buckled and bent,
She rode through the town with the handlebars down,
And, arse over titties she went.

Peggy oneil had a bike with one wheel
The frame was all battered and bent
She went down the town
A bus ran her down
Under the front wheel she went
The day that Peggy died
She pulled me to her side
And gave me a pair of flannel draws
The where tattered and torn
Around the arse they where worn
You can't beat the old flannel draws

Guy I worked with last in 1967 would sing:

If her drawers were forty fours, that’s Peggy O’Neil.
She is queen of all the (w)hors, that’s Peggy O’Neil.
She may charge a tanner, she may charge a bob.
That all depends on the size of your knob.
You’ll find it better to use a French letter,
When fuc**n’ Peggy O’Neil.


He Never sang more, and I, like you all, was hoping to find more verses here

He died in the late 1970’s. So the pearl is lost.
