Hey all,
I am co-teaching a workshops called "Rude songs and rounds" We funny inappropriate songs (some naughty some nice) and we have rounds, but we don't have many funny/inappropriate rounds, except for Black socks Benji met the bear, and Dwarfs are Short. Does anyone have some that they would like to share? Alternate words to commonly sung rounds would be especially fun for folks.

Thanks!!!
Claire

Take a look at "Mayor of Bayswater."

It is in the Mudcat Digital Tradition # 3925

mudcat.org/@displaysong.cfm?SongID=3925

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Lovely tune....a variation of the chorus is:
One left one, one right one
And one with a little light on....
To shoooow ussss the way.

This, to the tune Frere Jacques, may fit the bill:

I like spanking, I like spanking
Spanking nuns, spanking nuns
I like spanking dead nuns, I like spanking dead nuns
Dead nuns' bums, dead nuns' bums

Nice one! But perhaps could be improved by substituting 'bare' for 'dead'? Would depend, I suppose, on whether one's bag tends rather to SM or necrophilia!

I am willing to bet you will find a plentitude of naughtiness to round if you tap resources in the Rennfaire, Filk or Society for Creative Anachronism communities, should you have such contacts.

At a round singing party, an early music scholar brought in several Purcell catches - a catch essentially being a round. There was one about "Joan" (which we found humorous because that is his wife's name) but the one I'd known from a favourite album was in thr DT as follows:

CAKES AND ALE (CATCH)

(1) I gave her cakes and I gave her ale
I gave her sack and cherry
I kissed her once and I kissed her twice
And we were wanderers merry

(2) I gave her beads and bracelets fine
And I gave her gold down derry
I thought she was a-feared when she struck my beard
And we were wanderers merry

(3) Merry me hearts, merry me cocks, merry me sprites
Merry, merry, merry, merry, merry me hay down derry
I kissed her once and I kissed her twice
And we were wanderers merry

------------------------------------------------------------
A catch by Henry Purcell
recorded by the Silly Sisters (June Tabor & Maddy Prior) on
"No more To The Dance" (1988)

Lots of naughty rounds and catches. (Incidentally, in the last post, 'wanderers' ought to be 'wondrous').

Dr Edmund Ayrton, in 1778, wrote:

"The night he was wedded quoth Inigo Jones
Thou flesh of my flesh and thou bone of my bones,
There's a joke in the name of thy husband, dear Nancy,
A rare one, so rare that it tickles my fancy.
Lie still my dear love and my good thing shall out -
Oh Lord, Mr Jones, what are you about?
Hush, hush, pretty creature your squeakings and moans,
It's the joke that I told you of - In I Go Jones."

Jonathan Battishill, in 1763, wrote a musical epitaph -

"Here on his back doth lie Sir Andrew Keeling,
And at his feet his mournful lady kneeling.
But when he was alive and had his feeling,
She laid upon her back and he was kneeling."

Purcell also wrote 'Pox on you for a Fop' which requires the singers to belch and fart in time.

Novello publishes 'The Aldrich Book of Catches' while Oxford University Press publish 'The Catch Book'.

The Penguin Book of Rounds has

1 He that will an alehouse keep must have three things in store: a
2 chamber and a feather bed, a chimney and a hey nonny nonny,
3 hey nonny nonny, hey nonny no, hey nonny no, hey nonny no.

Check out a couple of catches:
When Cilia Was Learning on the Spinet to Play
and
Tom Making a Manteau

Two perfectly innocent lines, but when they are sung on top of each other the naughty bits are revealed.

The DT lyrics of Cakes and Ale have a few errors (struck, wanderers)
It should be:

CAKES AND ALE (CATCH)

(1) I gave her cakes and I gave her ale,
And I gave her sack and sherry;
I kissed her once and I kissed her twice,
And we were wondrous merry!

(2) I gave her beads and bracelets fine,
And I gave her gold, down derry.
I thought she was afear'd till she stroked my beard
And we were wondrous merry!

(3) Merry my heart, merry my cocks, merry my sprights,
Merry, merry, merry, merry, merry, my hey down derry.
I kissed her once and I kissed her twice,
And we were wondrous merry!

Thanks all!
I added the nuns one to my list - I had totally forgotten about that one - thanks! The others are on my list to look into for next time, since they seem a bit much for me to learn and teach in two days. Does Jonathan Battishill's 1763 musical epitaph have a tune that creates a round? - I could manage that one if it was set to a simple tune. Where would I find it?

There are several performances of "I gave her cakes" on You Tube, including one by a "virtual singer" called Melody Assistant, which has the advantage of including a written score. Another catch by Purcell also rendered by Melody Assistant is "Once, twice, thrice, Julia I tried". Also known, apparently, as "Kiss my arse".

"My man John had a thing that was long" is fun as well (the thing is in fact a broom.)

The Battishill one is a round in four parts, available in the Aldrich book. Defining 'simple tune' is tricky - it is more difficult than the 'London's Burning' sort of round. Good luck.

Claire: Were the nuns' bums you added "dead", or "bare" as I suggested?

Well, you have to have an appreciation of both German and Latin to make the most of Mozart's scatological rounds, he wrote two of them that I recall, maybe three?


with lines like "Leck mir im Arsch" and "Reck dem Arsch zum Mund."

I went for dead - I did tell them that that it was the authentic original. I kind of liked the dead buns cause I could imagine school children singing it versus the bare buns.
The workshop was a great success - thanks everyone!
