From: GUEST,The Mole Catcher's unplugged Apprentice
Date: 15 Mar 08 - 12:11 PM

Not sure if this one's been listed, so.......


Hev Yew Gotta Loight Boy?

The Singing Postman (Alan Smethurst)1966

I had a gal, a really nice gal, down in Wroxham way.
She were wholly nice to me back in the old school days.
She would smile all the while, but Daddy didn't know all.
What she used to say to me behind the garden wall:
"Hev yew gotta loight, boy? Hev yew gotta loight?"

Then one day she went away. I don't see her no more,
'Til by chance I see her down along the Mundesley shore.
She was there twice as fair. Would she now be true?
So when she sees me passing by, she say, "I'm glad that's you!
Hev yew gotta loight, boy? Have you got a light?"

CHORUS: Molly Windley, she smokes like a chimney,
But she's my little nicotine gal.

Now you'll see her and me never more to part.
We would wander hand in hand together in the dark.
Then one night I held her tight in the old back yard.
So when I tried to hold her close, she say, "Now, hold you hard!
Hev yew gotta loight, boy? Hev yew gotta loight?" CHORUS

By and by, we decide on the wedding day,
So we toddles off to church to hear the preacher say:
"Do you now take this vow to honour all the time?"
Before I has a chance to stop her, she begins to pine:
"Hev yew gotta light, boy? Hev yew gotta light?" CHORUS

Now the doctor tells me a daddy I will be,
So when I ask him, "What's the score?" he say there's only three.
So here I go, cheerio, to see how she do fare.
I know what she will say to me as soon as I get there:
"Hev yew gotta loight, boy?"

CMCW:

The song I referred to above travels under the name "The Devil's Questions." Googling that gets several hits, one of which is a book showing the melody.

You didn't indicate if there was a deadline; for all I know, the gig was yesterday. Do you want this pursued further?

Battle of Harlaw (Did you come from the Highlands, man? etc.)
**Crash** on the Highway --cited as "Wreck on ..."
Old Woman, Old Woman--unsure of that title myself, but that's 1st line

and the following--no idea of title, but it's a dialog between the Devil and a person, Devil speaking first. I know he says, "Questions nine" and there are only eight, but that's it."

If you can't answer my questions nine,
Sing ninety-nine and ninety!
Then you're not God's, your one of mine;
The crow flies over the white oak tree.

/second and fourth lines are repeated each verse/

What is higher than a tree? Sing ...
And what is deeper than the sea? The crow...

Heaven is higher than a tree;
God's love is deeper than the sea.

What is heavier than the lead?
And what is sweeter than the bread?

Grief is heavier than the lead;
And love is sweeter than the bread.

What is sharper than a thorn?
What is louder than the horn?

Hunger's sharper than a thorn;
And thunder's louder than the horn.

What is whiter than the milk?
What is softer than the silk?

Snow is whiter than the milk;
Down is softer than the silk.

Now you have answered my questions nine--
Sing ninety-nine and ninety;
And you are God's, you're none of mine--
The crow flies over the white oak tree.

I'll see if I can't find a melody somewhere--and if anybody knows the title, that would of course help.

Oh, did anyone mention "There's a Hole in the Bucket?" Guess not, 'cause I just searched "bucket" and these are the only hits. That's a good husband-wife dialog humor bit. Surely it's on Digitrad.

Oh mother be quick, I wanna be sick, and lay me down to die

What did you do there, Henry my boy
What did you do, my saveloy (Note: saveloy is a type of sausage)
Ate, dear mother

from the database

WHAT'S THE LIFE OF A MAN?

As I was a walking one morning at ease
A viewing the leaves as they fell from the trees
All in slow motion appearing to be
And those that had withered, they fell from the trees

What's the life of a man anymore than the leaves?
A man has his season, so why should we grieve?
Though all thru this life, we appear fine and gay
Like the leaves we will wither and soon fade away

If you'd seen the leaves just a few days ago
So beautiful and bright they all seemed to grow
A frost came upon them and withered them all
A storm came upon them and down they did fall

If you look in the churchyard, there you will see
Those that have passed like the leaves from the trees
When age and affliction upon us do fall
Like the leaves we must wither and down we must fall

Next question...is this Rob LoPresti any relation at all to Ronald LoPresti? Ronald LoPresti was the composer of a Kansas Centennial symphony that I participated in back in Winfield, KS, 1961.

Well, it was a bit more than a 'symphony'...it was an entire musical pageant set to music. It was called 'Kanza'. Just curious.

DADDY DEAR - (Cab and Lael Calloway)

Daddy Dear, tell me true, is the world really round?
Tell me where is the bluebird of happiness found?
Tell me why can't I fly like the birds in the sky?
Daddy Dear, tell me why are there tears in your eyes?

Little one, yes, it's true, yes, the world's really round.
(Can't recall this next line but it answers Lael's second question.)
And if children could fly there'd be no need for birds,
And I cry, little one, 'cause I'm touched by your words.

I thought about "Where do you go to my lovely?" but decided it really wasn't a question song in the usual sense (several questions, one after the other) I have to confess that I didn't know of the song before seeing Wes Anderson's new film, "The Darjeeling Limited" (great movie, by the way).
How about "Day Is Done"?

Tell me why you're crying my son
Are you frightened like everyone?
Is it the thunder in the distance you fear?
Will it help if I stay very near?
I am here...

CHORUS:

And if you take my hand my son
All will be well when the day is done (2x)


Do you ask why I'm sighing my son?
You shall inherit what mankind has done
In a world filled with sorrow and woe
If you ask me why this is so
I really don't know


Tell me why you're smiling my son
Is there a secret you can tell everyone?
Do you know more than men that are wise?
Do you see what we all must disguise
In your loving eyes?
