Subject: Lyr Add: SIDE BY SIDE and AFTER THE BALL (parodies
There is a whole family of these 'spare parts' songs

Side By Side
O we got married on Friday, the4 vicar said it was my day
When the guests had all gone, we were alone side by side
We got ready for bed then, and I nearly dropped dead when
Her false teeth and hair, she laid on a chair side by side

Picture my amazement when her glass eye she let fall
Her wooden leg and other things she stood up against the wall
Now me and my wife we are parted before we even got started
I slept on the chair - there was more of her there
Side by side

But there is also one to the tune of After the Ball

After the baall was over she sat on the sofa and cried
She put her false teeth in salt water and took out her lovely glass eye
She threw her peg leg in the corner, and hung up her wig in the wall
Then the rest of her went to bye-byes
After the Ball!

And Geoff Ling of Blaxhall wrote one to 'Among my souvenirs'
