Subject: Lyr Add: Matty Groves (parody)
From: Rusty Dobro

A holiday, a holiday, and the rain it was falling hard,
Lord Donald's wife went into town with her husband's credit card.
And when the spending it was done, she went back to where her car was parked,
And there she saw little Matty Groves, nicking sat-navs in the dark.

'Come home with me, little Matty Groves, come home with me tonight,
And I will do such things to you, as will make your hair turn white.'
'I can't come home, I won't come home, I can't come home for my life,
'Cos I see from your personal number plate you are Lord Donald's wife.'

'What if I am Lord Donald's wife, Lord Donald he has gone,
Down to the pub in ......., a'playing his melodeon.'

'I can't come home, I won't come home, I can't come home with you,
For I'm due in court in half an hour, for nicking a Subaru.'
'You can come home, you must come home, you can come home today,
I'm very good friends with a magistrate, he'll make it go away.'

'I can't come home, 'cos if I did, I'd be no use to you,
I've had a quart of Bacardi Breezer, and six tins of Special Brew.'
'You can come home, you must come home, I know it'll be all right,
There's nothing much on telly, so you can take all night.'

At this a servant standing by began to grow quite vexed,
He swore Lord Donald he would know, so he sent him off a text.
And when Lord Donald read the news, he began to swear and cuss,
He threw his melodeon back in its box, and jumped on the very next bus.

And when he came to his own bedroom, he peeped around the door,
His lady wife and Matty Groves, still at it on the floor.
And then Lord Donald turned him around, and hurried from the room,
He came back with his camcorder, with twenty times optical zoom.

And when the filming it was done, it was sold to Channel 4,
The three of them got stinking rich, so they filmed a dozen more...

From the pen of Stanley Accrington, the abridged version of Matty Groves.

Matty Groves gets off with this high class bird
she takes him home to bed
they're at it like hammer and tongues
when her husband come home unexpected
what the bloody hells going here he sez
and stabs Matty in the guts
what do you think of your lover boy now he sez
but she's cheeky so he chops her head off

The how do you like my curtains comes from the parody masters

Fatty Groves
(Dick Nudds & Chris Sugden 1987)

A holiday, a holiday, and all the people dozed
Lord Ormsby's wife went into the town, but everything was closed

She couldn't get no shopping done, and so she looked around
And there she saw big Fatty Groves a-lying on the ground

"Go home, go home, you Fatty Groves, you are a drunken lout;
Go home, go home, you Fatty Groves, you shouldn't be let out."

"Oh I can't go home, and I won't go home, and I can't go home for my life
For the ring off my finger I have lost, I'll be murdered by me wife

"Well if I am quite frank with you, your wife is not at home,
For she is in my husband's bed, and she is not alone.

So as I've nothing else to do - no really not a thing -
I might as well come back with you and help you find the ring."

A servant who was standing there, just why nobody knows,
He swore his cronies they should know before the pub was closed.

And when he come to the broad mill stream he did not see the plank
And in his hurry to carry the news he fell on his belly and sank.

Big Fatty and Lord Ormsby's wife they hunted high and wide,
Till Fatty fell upon his bed and she fell by his side.

Big Fatty Grives he got up to go and wash his face,
When he returned Lady Ormsby's husband lay there in his place.

Saying "Well, I like your feather bed and well, I like your sheets,
And well, to be frank, I like your wife who lies in my arms asleep.

"Stay there, stay there," said Fatty Groves, "I shall not rant and curse
For you have got the better of me and I have got the worse."

"Stout fellow," said Lady Ormsby's husband, "Taken like a man."
But in then come Mrs. Fatty Groves and in amazement stands.

Saying "How do you like my feather bed, and how do you like my sheet
And how do you like my curtains that I got in the sale last week?"

And then up spoke Mrs. Fatty Groves, never heard to speak so cheap,
"You told me you didn't like your wife, and now with her you sleep.

Lady Ormsby's husband he jumped up and ran right out the door,
"I didn't know it was her", he cried, and was never seen no more.

Fatty fainted clean away at the closeness of the call,
The ladies picked him up, and they leant him against the wall.

They leant him up against the wall, and that was a disaster,
For Fatty weighed full twenty stone and the wall just lathe and plaster.

The wall gave way and Fatty fell, oh Fatty fell outside,
And when he came to the broad pavement he fell on his head and he died.
"A grave, a grave," the ladies cried "To bury Fatty in,
But better you make it extra large, or you won't get him all in."

"Now isn't that just typical," these ladies they did say,
"The men can be relied upon to spoil a holiday."

Thanks Cllr. I confess to be an enjoyer of parodies, especially those of the Kipper family! Even write some myself. But I know some people don't like 'em. Aye, each to his/her own!

Matty Groves was a stupid Pratt,
He screwed Lord Barnard's wife,
Lord Barnard caught them on the job
And so he took his life.

That's all you need really innit?

Love the parodies! The short versions reminds me of a Romeo and Juliet poem that does the entire playa in a few lines, ending (spoiler alert!)

Then Juliet seized that awful knife and in her bosom stuck it / Let out a most terrific yell, fell down and kicked the bucket.

It's in the Forum, oddly enough, here.

A singer, a singer was old Dick
Though singing strained his piles
He never liked a parody
Never in a million Miles

Amen & druse
