Subject: My Bonnie (funny stuff)
From: Sarah-HS
Date: 03 Dec 99 - 04:05 PM

Y' know the song, My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean? Well, I know some nutty verses, but wondered if I'm missing any? Does anyone know other nutty verses besides the ones below?

My Bonnie has tuberculosis
My Bonnie has only one lung
My Bonnie can cough up raw oysters
And roll 'em around on her tongue

CHORUS: Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me, to me
Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.

My grandma sells cheap prophylactics
She punctures the head with a pin
And grandpa gets rich from abortions..
Oh, Gawd, how the money rolls in

My Bonnie leaned over the gas tank
The height of the contents to see
I lighted a match to assist her
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.

My breakfast lies over the ocean
My dinner lies over the rail
My supper is in a commotion
Will someone please bring me a pail

ANY OTHERS?

But I don't want to dirty the ocean

Three verses to My God How The Money Rolls In

My father makes book on the corner
My mother makes second hand gin
My sister makes love for a dollar
My God, how the money rolls in

CHORUS: Rolls in, rolls in, my God how the money rolls in, rolls in
Rolls in, rolls in, my God how the money rolls in

My grandma makes pink prophylactics
She pierces the end with a pin
My grandpa gets rich on abortions
My God, how the money rolls in

My brother's a poor missionary
He saves gorgeous women from sin
He'll save you a blond for five dollars
My God, how the money rolls in

Here's an expansion on one above that already involves a very rapid expansion.

Oh Zekey looked into the gas tank,
The contents of which for to see
He lit a match to assist him
Oh bring back my Zekey to me

Now Zekey had long curly tresses
And sideburns that went to his chin
And eyebrows that met in the middle
But now they are nothing but skin.

His nose was a prominent Roman
His eyes and his teeth all in place
But the force of the gas tank's explosion
Pushed 'em all to the back of his face..

For the pet monger among ye, this one was a hit with fourth graders.


A duck is an excellent swimmer
A monkey' both clever and shrewd
A dog loves to bring you your slippers
A cat only comes when there's food.

CHORUS: Yuck! Cats! Yuck! Cats!
Don't try to give one to me, to me
Yuck! Cats! Yuck! Cats!
Don't try to give one to me.

Birds chirp and twitter for hours
Rabbits make cuddly pets
Snakes can even be playful
But cats like to play hard to get.

Donkeys are known to be stubborn
But cats are much worse, you'll agree
Try leading a cat to the water
It's easier to part the Red Sea.

Cat lovers say. "Cats are so loving,
So diligent, loyal and true."
But cats just know how to be sneaky
Ignore folks, chase mice, and go "Mew".

So cat owners don't boast and brag so
That kitties are cute and high-class
To you cats are trusted companions
To me they're a pain in the ...

Some people fly over the ocean
Some people fly over the sea
But I always have had the notion
I'd like to have land under me.

My Bonnie is one of the sweetest
She has a bright spot on her nose
She powders her face evey minute
But her nose gets the most, I suppose.

Last night as I lay on my pillow
Last night as I lay on my bed
Last night as I lay on my pillow
I dreamed that my Bonnie was dead.

My Bonnie's a peach-bloom complexion
Her face it was lovely to see
One day she got caught in a rainstorm
O bring back her beauty to me.

My Bonnie lies under the auto
My Bonnie lies under the car
O please send somebody to help her
For it's lonesome out here where I are.

And the church group version of the Money Rolls In.

My mother's an apple-pie maker
My father he fiddles for tin
My sister scrubs floors for a livin'
O boys, how the money rolls in.

This was my protest song when I found out that there was a statue of Jesus in the John Pennecamp Coral Reef State Park which is a clear violation of the separation of church and state.

O Jesus is under the ocean
O Jesus is under the sea
Please raise him and stop your imposing
Of your Christianity.

Raise him up, raise him up
Raise Jesus from under the sea, the sea
Raise him up, raise him up
Raise Jesus from under the sea.

He's down in the Coral Reef State Park
Right next to the Florida Keys
Let's give him a new resurrection
And raise him from under the sea.

With a chorus of:

My two skin hangs down to my three,
My three skin hangs down to my foreskin,
My foreskin hangs down to my knee
Roll back, roll back,
Oh roll back my foreskin for me, for me,
Roll back, roll back,
Oh roll back my foreskin for me.

Excellent opportunities for harmonies in this chorus.

Early Union song:

The bosses from over the ocean
The bosses from over the sea
The bosses from over the ocean
Have taken my money from me.
Bring back bring back oh bring back my money to me etc.

Last night as I lay on my pillow
Last night as I lay on my bed
Last night as I lay on my pillow
I dreamed that the bastards were dead.

Also a final verse for the TB song, which seems to have been split up around the thread:

My body has tuberculosis
And if it should happen to you
Don't waste it all over the pavement
Save some to flavour the stew
