GUEST,Chris Lyr Req: two ronnies parody songs (36) RE: Lyr Req: two ronnies parody songs 25 Jul 15

OK, this thread is a bit old but some words...

To Polly Wolly Doodle - Mr Barker sings:

Now my little sister polly
she is really very jolly
she went out and bought a dog the other day
Its a poodle and its wooly
and she pulls it on a pully
singing polly's wooly poodle all the way

People popped into the parlour,
to see polly's wooly poodle,
with a bowl of chicken noodle on a tray
Saying polly dearest poodle please your pretty little poodle,
She was popular with people right away.

Sad to say, came the day
pollys reputation fell completely flat
when the parson and his daughter
sang the parting of the water
pollys poodle did a puddle on the mat.

From the short-and-fat minstrel show.

Also from there....

Way down upon the Swanee River, I met Kate McGuire,
Two onions and a pound of liver, that's how she won my desire.
She knew just how to cook my dinner, oh hush my mouth,
No chance of ever getting thinner, down in the deep fried south.
All the steaks were rich and fatty, all the beans were tinned.
That's why my heart is burning ever, that's why I'm 'gone with the wind'.

Oh, and a Ronnie Corbett one:

I looked cross the water and what did I see-e,
Lying on the seafront at home*
A girl with a bust that measured 63,
Looked like St Peters in Rome.
Her name was Harriot, a stripper at the Hippodrome.
Swing low, sweet Harriot.
Took four men to carry her home.

(*not sure about the first home - might have been something else).
