"Erotic" certainly is a better word but not appropriate to most of the songs listed here which are nothing more than juvenile, pre-pubescent, sniggering schoolboy crudeness.

The Bird In The Bush EP reminds me of Long Pegging Awl from Bert Lloyd, cleverly revived recently by Benji Kirkpatrick.

Though Black Joak is still way out in front.

Here's a recent recording by the Jim Moray Three

I cannot remember the title of the song but the chorus is

               Balls to your partner,your ass against the wall
               If you don't get f---ed on Saturday night
               You won't get f---ed at all.

   One verse went: They were doing it in the barley,
                   They were doing it in the oats,
                   Most were doing women but some were doing goats.

                   Singing...Chorus

   I remember most of the other verses but would rather not publish them here.

"...most of the other verses ..." would be longer than "A Gest of Robin Hood."

The chorus you give is a later English rendition. The earlier Scots refrain, with variables:

Wha did ye last nicht, wh'll dae ye noo,
The yin that did it last nicht, canna dae it noo.

Fortunately, boys will be boys, and so will a lot of midle-aged men. A favourite trick is to wait for Redwing to pop up in a tune session, launch into the B with the immortal words "Oh the moon shines bright on Nellie Cartwright..." and watch who chokes on their pint.

"Bloody Great Kidney Wiper" with its immortal chorus:

With his bloody great kidney wiper,
Yes, bloody great kidney-wee,
And forty yards of foreskin
Hanging down below his knee!

"Balls as Heavy as Lead" is another classic in danger of becoming extinct, the chorus of which runs:

For they were large balls,
Balls as heavy as lead,
With a dextrous twist of his muscular wrist
He'd sling 'em right over his head!
For they were large balls,
Balls as heavy as lead!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

The old LP, "Bawdy Songs and Backroom Ballads" by Oscar Brand, is a classic. It may not meet the "smell test" for downright filthy, but it has a healthy dose of smutty.

That hoary and hairy old classic is originally called The Balls of Kerremuir, I believe, although I am uncertain of the spelling of Kerremuir. I know how to spell balls, though -- ya just go off by yourself for a couple of days.

Snuffy,
the lines on the other thread are all I know, maybe even all there are as I've always thought of it as one of those glorious "one liners" which sometimes attach themselves to tunes. Like the National Emblem March, which traditionally has the words "Have you ever caught your knackers in a rat trap..." The Charlie Chaplin connection seems to be what popularised the tune, and knowing what some of those old East Anglian musicians were like, and still are if the Eel's Foot is anything to go by, I wouldn't be surprised if the Nellie Cartwright lines go back to the tune's early days, and were then expanded by the rugby song enthusiasts to parody the Redwing song. The rest of the song is a bit of a mess, which if I remember rightly was published in the sixties in a book called "Why Was He Born So Beautiful".

are three that go beyond the erotic and behind the bike shed.

These days I prefer the more stately Cuckoo's nest but I do sing its bawdier Australian descendant Navvy on the line.

Has anyone mentioned the "Masturbation Song"?

               Last night I contemplated masturbation,
               Oh wasn't it grand,oh wasn't it grand?
               Left hand, right hand, jerk it in and out,
               Left hand, right hand, flip it all about!
               Some will maintain that sexual intercourse is grand
               But for personal satisfaction I would rather use my hand!
   
   I heard this sung many years ago by a schoolteacher originally from Wales.

In the previous post I omitted a line.Between the second and third lines should be the following:

      Just a few taps from the back of the hand
      To make it stand, to make it stand.

   I've changed my mind. Here are a few more lyrics that I recall from a version of "The Balls of Kerrmuir":

         The village magician, he was there.
         He made a magic pass:he pulled his foreskin over his head
         And vanished up his ass.
         
         Singing balls...(chorus)

         The village doctor he was there sitting by the fire
         A-cutting contraceptives from an india rubber tire

                         chorus

         The village idiot he was there sitting on a mat
         Amusing himself by abusing himself and catching it in his hat

                         chorus
         Mercifully those are all the lyrics I remember!

"Try to get a woman, get a woman if you can,

Ms. Easby's take is quite to the point. Much of this thread deals with juvenile, sophomorish, sniggering, pre-pubescent and crude material - which is exactly why so many of us responded to it, I'm sure.

Ah well, Adge Cutler decided to make it almost printable when he did his version of The Ball of Kerriemuir.

Being a Somerset lad, he changed the first verse to

Four and twenty maidens came down from Portishead
When the ball was over, the maidens lost their heads.

Funny how songs evolve...

To be funny enough for most audiences, a song has to imply, have double entendres or have the audience thinking one thing and the punch line is not lewd at all. Many entertainers can do this.

However, as this is about folk songs as we perceive them, I agree with a posting somewhere up the screen that says The Bonny Black Hare is a good song. It certainly isn't double meaning! Shows the minds of our great great great grandads...

I knew the song as the "Ball of Ballymuire".

OK, you asked for it. My step-father sang this in the
Merchant Marine. "Christopher Columbo".

"They sailed past San Salvador in search of shining booty,
A naked whore lay on the beach, my God she was a beauty.
The sailor boys jumped overboard divesting shirts and collars.
In fifteen minutes by the clock, she made ten-thousand dollars.

Christopher Columbo, He thought the world was round-O!
That masterbaiting, fornicating son-of-a bitch Columbo."

(There is
some truth in the sentiment since Columbus was a mass-murderer
and exterminated the Taino and the Arawak Indians in San Salvador.
Why they have Columbus Day in the States as a holiday I don't know.

Oh the sun shines bright on Nelly Cartwright.
She couldn't fart right
her hole was air tight.


and thennn there's my favorite:

Put it in your mouth Mrs Murphy.
It only weighs a quarter of a pound
It's got hair all around it like a turkey
and it spits when you rub it up and down.
