Time again to go Mudcatting! Join singers from all over the US, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, and...where else? Hear singing in English (both British and American), Irish, Scots Gaelic, Occitan, Hebrew, French, German, Breton, and… what else?

We start sing at NOON pacific daylight time, 3 PM in New York, and 8 PM in London. We sing for around five hours, depending on how many attend, and it's always wonderful. Doors open half an hour early for schmoozing and numbering the singing order. Be sure to update to the latest version of Zoom.

Through the miracle of technology, this session will be hosted by Noreen Keene (in England with Irish connections) with backup hosting from Casey Casebeer in California. And let’s have a round of applause for the wild and wooly Mudcat session assistant volunteers, without whom all would be anarchy and pandemonium. (Anarchy and pandemonium have their place, granted, but not at an event that gets through 30 to 60 singers every session!)

Joe is on vacation, and about time. He’ll be back next week.




Casey Casebeer (on behalf of Joe Offer) is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

I don't know which are my best songs (if anyone wants to pmail me with advice ...?). But we also had a suggestion to sing songs about parties and celebrations, so I am hoping some singers take up that suggestion. And probably a couple of Mudcatters would be inspired to compose a ditty specifically for the occasion.

Everybody gets two chances to sing unless they arrive very, very late.
See you next week.

From: YorkshireYankee
Date: 17 May 21 - 09:26 PM

As requested, here are the words of the parody I sang this evening.

Note: This is written by someone in the UK, and verse 4 (which I skipped this evening) refers to a now-infamous incident in the spring of 2020 during the UK's first lockdown, when Prime Minister Boris Johnson's chief adviser Dominic Cummings violated the rules he had helped to write – by driving himself and his family ~250 miles from London to Cumbria, after discovering he and his wife had clear symptoms of Covid and then about a week later drove 30 miles to scenic Barnard Castle "to test his eyesight" before returning to London (it was just a coincidence that it happened to be his wife's birthday) – and, in spite of public outrage, did not resign and was not sacked. (
More info here.)

I LOVE NOT WHERE I LIVE
A topical parody of the song 'I Live Not Where I Love'
by Colin Andrews

Come all you folks who social distance
at least two metres from your friends
Come let me tell you what I miss and
ask when will restrictions end

We're not allowed to kiss or cuddle
or give a friend a loving hug
Or even sing a song together
just in case we spread the bug

Regulations now require us
to wear a mask when in a store
To help defeat corona virus
we (must) keep our distance when outdoors

But government advice is farcical
when its adviser all the rules ignores
And takes a trip to Barnard Castle,
no apology, just a curt 'Up yours'

Around the world among all religions
folk have in their thousands died
While some leaders don't care a smidgeon
and others still the threat deny

The world has changed and life seems strange
no jet-setting to distant lands
Virtual socialising, sanitizing
and the government will wash its hands

So be aware lads be aware lasses,
if I could only have a choice
I'd fly away to safe New Zealand
far from Johnson's waffling voice
But since I'm furloughed I can't follow
my wishes or my job I'd lose
I'll stay in my pod and pray to God
for some day soon much better news

Come one, come all! The announcement for the April 5 Singaround just went out by email. If you'd like to be added to the list or if you didn't get your announcement, email me, joe@mudcat.org


It happens every Monday and goes for about five hours. Doors open half an hour early.
Singing begins at Noon in Los Angeles, 3 PM in New York, and 8 PM in London. Hope you can come.

I've been asked to remind people to keep conversation and spoken song introductions to a minimum during the singing portion of our gathering - but we do appreciate it if you give us the name of the song before you sing, and a brief explanation is always welcome. Our schedule makes some people be up at ungodly hours, and they've come to sing, not talk. We stay open for conversation afterwards for as long as people want to stay.
In general, we have a five-minute time limit per person. Don't fill obliged to fill up the whole five minutes.
In short: Don't talk Too Much!!

Another wonderful gathering. We had something over 50 participants. That keeps us singing for FIVE hours, going twice around the circle. I think we can sustain this as long as we have twenty participants. After that, I think we should talk. But for me, every Monday has been wonderful since we began.....and then I have to take a serious nap right afterwards.

Hi, Everyone -
Please note that because the US and UK change to Daylight Savings time on different dates, our Singaround for the next two weeks, March 15 and 22, will begin at 7 PM London time. In the US, starting times will be the usual Noon in Los Angeles and 3 PM in New York. Those of you in the rest of the world will have to figure out the starting time on your own, because you're less likely to confuse it than I would be.
We open the doors and chit-chat for half an hour before starting time, and then we sing for about 5 hours and then have an online party.

I'll post a link here about an hour before we open our doors on Monday. If you want advance notice, email me to get on the weekly email notice list. I'm sending out this week's email right now.

Here's our contribution. For some reason Zoom wouldn't let me paste.

Bugeilio’r Gwenyth Gwyn (Watching the White Wheat)?Original Welsh words by Wil Hopcyn (1700-1741) ?English translation by David Llewellyn (2002).??Mi sydd fachgen ieuanc ffol
Yn myw yn ol fy ffansi
Myfi’n bugeilio’r gwenith gwyn
Ac arall yn ei fedi
And what a simple fool am I
Who loves at fancy’s pleasure
For whilst I tend the ripening wheat
Another reaps the treasure
 
Though they may lock you dungeon deep
Our love to die aborning
Upon a leaf, blood’s true words speak
Your deepest feelings for me
But I can’t stay, my heart would break
For you must take another
Though stars will fall, our love may shine?As endless time discovers
 
Then in a dream, your vows set free
And to your side I hurry
But from a heart, so torn in two
In this life you’ll not tarry
And now I lose for a second time
To He whose love is greater
For whilst I tend the ripening wheat
Another reaps the treasure
 
Mi sydd fachgen ieuanc ffol
Yn myw yn ol fy ffansi
Myfi’n bugeilio’r gwenith gwyn
Ac arall yn ei fedi 


Follwed by??Little Collier
 
Yr wyf i little collier, yn gweithio underground,
The rope will never tori, when I go lan y lawr.
Bara menyn when I'm hungry, cwrw when I'm dry,
Gwely when I’m tired, and Nefoedd when I die.
 
I'd like to cwrdd the manager, and siarad to him strong,
This bywyd underground might mean, I do not byw for long.
Gwrando Mister Mining Boss, us bechgyn gweithio hard
Talu decent wages or your calon will grow hard.
 
So wella our conditions, and trin my family fair,
Or dwi'n mynd i Pennsylvania, am fywyd gwell lies there.
To all bosses mawr y byd, you know chi fod yn true.?Talu living wages or no Nefoedd waits for you!
 
Repeat first verse

Hush Little Sailor Boy
Hush Little Whaler's Boy
Don't cry for your Daddy at Sea
He's on - the seas sailing
He's out - there a' whaling
But he'll be home soon, you'll see

Hush Little Sailor Boy
Hush Little Whaler's Boy
Don't cry for your Daddy at Sea
He's on the seas sailing
He's out there a'whaling
But he'll be home soon, you'll see

Gerry - I learnt my song from the late Monty Parkin as ‘Marks and Spencer’, but on reflection, perhaps it should be ‘Any Title Will Do’.......

Here's my list of songs (no poems this time) that were sung, in order, at the Singaround on 4/5 January 2021. I didn't get a name for Patty Clink's parody of Dylan's My Back Pages. I'm not sure that Bring Me My Dull Old Pants is the right title for Rusty Dobro's take-off on a song from Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. Corrections, additions, and random wisecracks always welcome. Here you go:

Wasn't That a Mighty Storm?
Mormond Braes
Ballad of Jed Clampett
We'll Sing Hallelujah
Richard of Taunton Dean
The Will (in French)
Stewball
Please to See the King
Seven Nights Drunk (aka Seven Drunken Nights, cf Our Goodman)
Bring Me My Dull Old Pants (parody of Any Dream Will Do / Give Me My Colored Coat)

Mr Fox
V'chitetu Charvotam (And They Shall Beat Their Swords, in Hebrew)
The Body Piercing Song (parody of I'll Tell Me Ma)
