Subject: Lyrics - Sammy Shuttleworth??
From: PeteFletcher
Date: 21 Jun 99 - 02:16 PM

Hi,

Now this is a real long shot!!

Anyone got the lyrics for this song. The first line is something like;

"Old sammy Shuttleworth from Lancashire, He had a party last night."

The last line of each verse is; "Ee-by-gum we had a right good do."

I havn't heard it for years and I thing it may be more of a Music-Hall number. Anyone got a good site for Music-Hall stuff?

Cheers,

Peter

Hi Peter, I've got a song from Lancashire called "Sam Shuttle & Betty Reedhook" but it doesn't seem to be close. It's about Sam fighting for Betty's notice. Barry

I don't know the words myself but I know a man who sings it, might be from the Oldham Tinkers, I'll see what I can find out next time I see him which may be some time.... be some time...

Hi Pete

I've found a recording of Sammy Shuttleworth by Mike Harding, from 1970. By gum there's a lot of words there! If you mail me on l@carlson.ukf.net I'll see if I can get a copy to you.

Hi again;
I've got the lyrics now from Graham Holloway at UK.music.folk.
If anyone's interested, they are below.
Cheers,

Peter.

SAMMY SHUTTLEWORTH'S PARTY

Old Sammy Shuttleworth of Lancashire
He gave a party, last neet.
All the lasses and the lads were there,
Bunged in the door hole, stuck reet!
The guests were fat and the house was small,
and They got stuck in the entrance hall.
Owd Johnny Bugger got a tin of Vaseline,
He greased all the lobby and they all slid in.
Eeee! There were 'undreds on the door mat,
Eeee! There were 'undreds on the rug,
Eeee! There were dozens on the slop stone.
Little Polly Higgins went and tumbled down the plug,
Eeee. And we heard a woman screamin',
We saw some lace and naughty ribbons blue
And Aunt Maria sat on the fire
And went and burnt her Isle of Wight
And ee by gum we 'ad a right good do.

At the supper there were cow-heel stew,
Real devilled tripe and pigs' feet,
While they were gollopin' the slutch, it's true,
You could 'ave 'eard 'em, next street,
Eee what fun when old Aunt Ruth
Speared a pickled onion on her front tooth,
Eee by gum and the fun were rich
When we all started fightin' for the parson's snitch!
Eeee! There were kippers a la francais,
Eeee! and saucy little Sal
Eeee! she guzzled all the fishbones,
They stuck up her Manchester and Liverpool canal,
Eeee! she were coughin' and a splutterin'
We 'ad to send around for Doctor Drew
And all the lads they stood around
And watched the Doctor fillet her,
And ee by gum, we 'ad a right good do.

After supper there was dustman's knock,
Kissin' all the wenches was fine,
Owd Albert 'Iggins, the lazy lad
He started workin' overtime,
Owd Aunt May, tha knows what she did
She did an exhibition dance on the copper boiler lid,
The lid it bust and we heard a scream,
You couldn't see me poor owd Aunty May for steam,
Eeee! with her brand new evening dress on,
Eeee! there were little Polly Dwyer
Eeee! and some bugger threw a woodbine
Down her camisole and set her shuttlecocks on fire.
Eeee! and they put 'er out wi' water
Just when we'd all got a lovely view
So Albert 'Iggins got a match and set the lass on fire again,
And ee by gum we 'ad a right good do.

At the party there was lots of ale,
But we ran out of pots at 'alf time
Owd Uncle Albert used the chamber Po
And he said it tasted right fine,
Ee what fun when me Uncle 'Orace
Went and guzzled all the metal polish,
'E went black and started to cough
And the polish nearly polished Uncle 'Orace off.
Eeee! when we woke up in the mornin'
Eeee! we'd 'ad the time of all our lives,
Eeee! we were so enthusiastic
Other fellers toddled 'ome with other fellers wives
Eeee! and we thowt it all were champion,
But what that party was we never knew,
'Cos if it was a wedding a christnin' or a funeral,
Eee by gum we 'ad a right good do...

My verse 2 is:
After supper we had cowheel stew
Real devilled tripe and..pigs feet
When they were golloping the food its true
You could have heard them ....next street
Eee what fun when old aunt Ruth
Speared a Spanish onion on her front tooth
Ee by gum but the fun was rich
They all started fighting for the parson's snitch
Eeeeeee there were kippers a la fancy
Eeeeeee and that saucy little Sal
Eeeeeee she swallowed all the fishbones
They stuck in her Liverpool and Manchester canal
Eeeeeee she was spluttering and choking
We had to send around for Doctor Drew
And everybody stood and watched
When he began to fillet her
Eeee by gum we had a reet fine do


And there's lots more, but thats the second verse you asked for. If you want more let me know

After supper there were gay quadrilles
Kissing all the wenches...was fine
Little Jimmy Dutton our lazy lad
He started working....full time
Our Aunt May do you know what she did?
Did an exhibition dance on the copper lid
Lid fell through and we heard a scream
Couldnt see poor old Aunty May for steam

Eeeeee with her nice new evening dress on
Eeeeee and little Maggie Dwyer
Eeeeee someone dropped a Woodbine
Down her camisole and set her shuttlecock on fire
Eeeeeee then we put it out with water
Just as we had got a lovely view
So Tony Robson got a match
And set it all on fire again
And eee by gum we had a reet fine do

(the relish with which Banjo Willie sang "Just as we had got a lovely view" stays with me 40 years later!)
