From a Czech guy at a session in Edinburgh last Sunday: could we play "My bunny is over the ocean".

Others like that?

Not a request to me, but once I was listening to a radio station and the disc jockey made fun of the person who called in for requesting "Secret Asian Man"

And what is Secret Asian Man supposed to be?

I used to think that Steeleye Span was the Steel Ice Band.

This isn't a song request but a book request at a library where I used to work. Tequila Mockingbird. Needless to say the library assistant was having no luck at all finding it in the catalogue.

An English ex pat working in a New York record shop was, allegedly, asked, in broad Brooklyneese, for "Da Biggest Tits of Pussy Face". i.e. "The Biggest Hits of Percy Faith".

So you want to snigger at people whose first language isn't English?

You really are an arsehole sometimes, Jack.

Me, at a Harvey Mandel concert: "Walk on the Water!"

After the third time, Harvey gave me the stinkeye and said, "It's called Wade in the Water!"

Oops.

I think it was Colum Sands who said he got a request to sing the one about the woman with the hairy tongue. It turned out the request was for Black Velvet Band – "Her hairy tongue over her shoulder/Tied up in a black velvet band."

And Enda Kenny (Australian singer-songwriter, not Irish poltician) has told the story of a request for the one he wrote about the two green cars. It was a song that mentioned peregrine falcons.

I would have thought the opening one was more of a mondegreen but I see what you mean. On requests, one I recall was someone requesting Alan Taylors 'Roll on the day' by calling out, 'give us the one about the bloke with the chest' :-) At our folk club we often used to get asked for the DIY song - Polycell, oh Polycell, the grouting's now begun...

Cheers

Dave

There's always the Chester Song...(at twilight)

And the jockeys song.... Big horse, I love you so.

And the French composer Jacky Bear.

That last one reminded me of the knock-knock one:

Knock knock.

Who's there?

M A B it's a big horse

M A B it's a big horse who?

M A B it's a big horse I'm a Londoner...

Christy Moore regaled us once with his tale of the man who rushed up to the stage, askiing him if he did requests.

"What would you like me to sing?" asked Christy.

"Ah, anything you like!" came the reply.

We never did requests unless we were asked for them.

We'd finished our Sunday night gig and were packing up when an occasional visitor piped up "You didn't sing the one about the cow".

We were somewhat confused, till he said "MacIntyre" at which point light dawned and we sang it to him as we finished packing up.
