Another song from 'Way Back Then' ! Following on from Council meetings as to ways to augment The Rates (Pre Council Tax) , sthis song emerged as a not very serious suggestion !

The Birmingham Brothel - Stan Crowther

C                                           G                               F                                    C
Some councillors up there in Birmingham Town have had quite an interesting dream
                                       G                                  F                               C
A Council Run Brothel is what they propose , we think its an excellent scheme
      G                                                                   D                                     F
So ladies take note , for its time to apply , if you want to be picked for the team
       C                                 F                                           C            G                  C
Its a bit of all right we'll be there every night when they open the Birmingham Brothel
                                           F                                           C            G                   C
Its a bit of all right,we'll be there every night , when they open the Birmingham Brothel


The opening night will be quite an event , and all the top brass will be there
To see the golden key turned in the lock by his worship , the bleeding Lord Mayor
And the vicar will say , at the close of the day m, a short dedicatory prayer
Its a bit of all right , we'll be there every night , when they open the Birmingham Brothel

The Methodist choir will sing 'Bless This House' and the minister will come , if he dares
But the vicar , of course will be right out in front , to the girls he will say a few prayers
First he'll address then , then he'll undress them and lead them away up the stairs
Its a bit of all right , we'll be there every night , when they open the Birmingham Brothel

The whole City Council will all want to join the committee selecting the staff
And the work study experts will soon be called in , which should be a bloody good laugh
They'll measure production in the art of seduction and mark it all down on a graph
Its a bit of all right , we'll be there very night , when they open the Birmingham Brothel

A real money spinner this venture should prove , as soon as the ladies begin
And the Treasury Department will need extra staff , to cope with the cash rolling in
But the Council , of course , will be let in for free , just to check on the service within
Its a a bit of all right , we'll be there every night , when they open the Birmingham Brothel

To the tune of Tom Lehrer's Masochism Tango, I presume?

Rotherham had a good lad as MP with Stan.

I still do his "The Vicar and the Frog."

What a very decent man - lovely to have the craic with - first met him at Redcar Folk Festival . Seemed too normal to be an MP (Member of Pariament).

Is "guest" above correct - chords are OK - but if you don't know the tune, well ....it could be anything
Happy memories

Masochism Tango is VERY Minor - totally different tune ! If anyone REALLY wants the tune , PM me and I'll send an MP3 !
I'm a dimmo who can't do the pigeons on the telegraph wires !

You'll have to be member to PM , and I could do you Masochism Tango as well !

The proximity but slight deviation of meter meant the line was too good to pass up, you must admit.

Plans for a Stan Crowther memorial concert I believe imminent through "Little Pot stove" Judy Dalton also a Capstick memorial in the offing

Stan was mayor of Rotherham and MP, turned down a peerage, saw him once (that I remember!) at Barnsley with Lord Mason of Barnsley ~ Danny Clarke there too

Some stage may get chance to put his songs on Yorkshire Garland he had good 'uns and still sung by the likes of Dave Neale
