There is a song 'Breaking him up for spares' about women taking the best bits of several men to build a new and better one. It is very funny, but I can't find the words for it.
Can anybody help please?
Can't help but wonder what kind of response I might get to this request LOL
thanks,

I have several songs that refer to body parts , though not that particular one !
I DO like Shep Woolley's rewrite of 'Lucille' - You picked a fine time to try for a feel !!

It's interesting that our local folk club's monthly sing just last week had "body parts" as its topic.

Sorry, but that song was not used....though some very interesting ones were... *grin* I'm sure someone would have tossed it in if they'd known it. (Must be a recently written one.)

Possibly not what you had in mind - from Tom Lenihan of West Clare

The Bright Silvery Light of the Moon

Twas down in Killala in the marry month of May
When the roses and the heather was in bloom
A fair lady passed me by and she winked with her right eye
By the bright silvery light of the moon

Twas a case of love at sight, but to us it was delight
We got cuddled up together very soon
We got married straight away in the church at Killala
By the bright silvery light of the moon

But she squandered all my dough, to our home we had to go
O what a place to spend a honeymoon
With no fire in the grate, only looking at the plates
By the bright silvery light of the moon

But when we went to bed it is then I got in dread
For I knew that I was going far too soon
For twas there upon a chair I see her golden hair
By the bright silvery light of the moon

But the worst was yet in store, for when she began to snore
She nearly pulled the blanket round the room
And twas there upon a peg I see her wooden leg
By the bright silvery light of the moon

Now young fellas if you meet a fair lady down the street
Try her well before you plan your honeymoon
Pull her leg and pull her hair and make sure that she's all there
By the bright silvery light of the moon


Not so much about body parts as collectors of same

BURKE AND HARE


William Burke it is my name
I stand condemned alone.
I left my native Ireland
In the county of Tyrone.
And o'er to Scotland I did sail,
Employment for to find;
No thought of cruel murder
Was then into my mind.

At Edinburgh trade was slack,
No work there could I find;
And so I took the road again,
To Glasgow was inclined;
But stopping at the West-port
To find refreshment there,
0 cursed be the evil hour
I met with William Hare!

With flattering words he greeted me
And said good fortune smiled;
He treated me to food and drink
And I was soon beguiled;
He said:"There's riches to be had,
And fortune's to be made,
For atomists have need of us.
So join me in that trade.

Hare he kept a lodging-house
Therein a man had died,
His death went unreported
And of burial was denied
We put the dead man in a cart
And through the streets did ride.
And Robert Knox,the atomist,
The dead man he did buy.

To rob the new dug graves by night
It was not our intent;
To be taken by the nightwatch
Or by spies was not our bent.
The plan belonged to William Hare
And so the plot was laid,
He said that "murder's safer
Than the resurrection trade."

Two women they were in the plot
The wife of William Hare,
The other called McDougal,
And travellers they did sanre;
They lured them to the lodging house
And when they'd drunken deep,
Hare and me, we smothered them
As they lay fast asleep.

At first in fear and dread I was
But later grew more bold,
In nine short months we killed fifteen
And then their bodies sold.
The doctors did not question us,
But quickly paid our fee,
The price they paid,it prospered us,
Both William Hare and me.

But soon our crimes they were found out
In jail we were confined,
And cruel guilt it tore my heart
And much despairs my mind;
And Hare, who first ensnared me
And led me far astray
Has turned King's evidence on me
And sworn my life away

In that case - I offer by way of an apology Tom Lehrer's excellent "I Hold Your Hand in Mine Love".
