Subject: Lyr Add: THE ROCHDALE HOUNDS (from Gracie Fields)

You can play or download this song at The Internet Archive. It's song #3 on that page. Here's my transcription:

Words and music by Cliffe/Gifford
As sung by Gracie Fields, 1936

I've been 'untin' with the 'ounds at Rochdale.
Ee, by gum, we've got a lovely pack!
Whippets and Alsatians,
Bulldogs an' Dalmatians,
Horses with two legs in front an' two more at the back.
Off we dash an' make a fine display.
Auntie took a fence an' took it with 'er all the way.

CHORUS: With the Rochdale hounds at the Rochdale hunt, tallyho, tallyho!
In hunting dress instead of clogs and shawls,
Jumping over fences an' the backyard walls,
Tantivy, tantivy, tantivy, away, away!
Away we went with leaps an' bounds.

We couldn't find a fox, so with a cat we made pretend.
Uncle Willie rode a horse 'e borrowed from a friend.
Such a lovely thoroughbred with a coal-wagon on the end!
Followin' the Rochdale 'ounds!

The 'orse I rode I borrowed from a circus.
It tried to beg an' dance upon its toes.
Father, though 'e's bandy,
He looks fine an' dandy,
In a lovely scarlet coat to match 'is scarlet nose.
Gran'pa's 'orse it couldn't jump at all,
So all of us we 'ad to lift it over ev'ry wall.


Father's 'orse flew round the town, an' you would 'ardly think
It dashed right through the Rose an' Crown an' out in 'alf a wink.
'Twas the first time pa's been in a pub an' come out without a drink.
Followin' the Rochdale 'ounds!

Throughout(?) young Maggie 'Iggins, known around the neighbourhoods,
She's 'ad a nasty fall, but she's a saucy piece of goods.
It's not the first time Maggie 'as fallen when she's been in the woods.
Followin' the Rochdale 'ounds!
