Subject: Query - R. Fielding: Show Us The Length
From: GUEST,CB James - James Bridgland
Date: 11 Feb 00 - 10:48 PM

Started this thread a while back.

Encouraging responses from Barbara & Susan but no luck to date. Susan - did Pat have the words?

In the non-event (of words arriving) I notice that Bob Bossin has a web site.

My question to Rick Fielding - Do you figure Bob Bossin would be tickled / embarrased / pissed off at a request to post the lyrics on this Forum?

Please advise.

James.

AW, just ask him. I'll check with Pat tomorrow. I bet she'll be working at my favorite bookstore. What an interesting question to go in with (BG)

Show Us the Length
(Bob Bossin)

Girls as the principal of Terra Nova High School
Once each year it's a pleasure for me
To introduce you to the Mayor of the City of Pacifica
To say a few words about our annual Queen
"Who'll be," said the Mayor, "a very lucky maid
To represent the Pacifica to all of the state
And who could go on to be Miss California
Or even Miss America herself!"

"I expect to see some volunteers"
When one girl rose and without any fears

She said:
"Mr. Mayor,
Show us the length of your cock
Are you hung like a beaver or hung like a bear?
Let me check the weight of your rocks
So we can have a standard by which to compare
You men don't worry if it's very very slender
The personality is as important as a member
Drop your trousers and make the news
Or don't judge lest we judge you."

Well the girls watched the teachers who were checking out the principal
Who glanced at the Mayor who looked at his shoes
"Huh, huh", said the Mayor then "Excuse me Mr. Principal
I just remember I got something else to do
elsewhere"But before he could leave the school
The girl came forward a holding out her ruler
The Mayor took off like a kite in the wind
When she started singing again:

Show us the length of your cock
Are you hung like a beaver or hung like a bear?
Let me check the weight of your rocks
So we can have a standard by which to compare
You men don't worry if its short or bent or slender
The personality is as important as a member
Drop your trousers and make the news
Or don't judge lest we judge you.

Girls as the Principal of Terra Nova High School
I called you back to say these words
A girl has been suspended for the rest of the semester
On account of the behavior of which you have all heard
By now it was a blow to Terra Nova's name
We believe in freedom but license is not the same
The women's liberation may be partially true
But there's never an excuse for being be rude.

Some girls clapped and others just booed
And all the other girls just sang this tune:

Show us the length of your cock
Are you hung like a beaver or hung like a bear?
Let me check the weight of your rocks
So we can have a standard by which to compare
You men don't worry if its short or bent or slender?
The personality is as important as a member
Drop your trousers and make the news
And don't judge lest we judge you.
(with no pants on)
Don't judge lest we judge you
(and find you wanting)
Don't judge lest we judge you
And don't judge unless you be judged
(Without a shred)

Apparently Bob Bossin wrote this song after listening to Vera Johnson's song about the same incident.Does anyone have the words to her song?

Could only find A Minx from Pinsk in the DT by Vera Johnson. There are a few references in the forum to her but not really any info. Does anyone know of this singer/songwriter?, possibly Canadian?

You can hear "show us the Length" on Bright Morning Star's album. Charley King keeps selling them, though the band is disbanded. Their presentation of it was hilarious!

Does he also have the other recording with How Can I keep From Shopping, I Did It Their Way and other such classics on it? I don't know what happened to mine, but I did like it quite a bit and I am afraid it has melted behind a radiator or been eaten by dust bunnies in my house.

Vera J is an old acquaintance of mine, and I expect to see her next week at a meeting of the British Columbia Folklore Society. I'll ask her about this then. [Incidentally, check out the BCFS site, you may like it: at folklore.bc.ca (very simple!)].

And even Miss America herself.

"I expect to see some volunteers…"
When one girl rose and without any fear…
She said, "Mr. Mayor,

CH: "Show us the length of your cock.
Are you hung like a beaver or hung like a bear.
Let me check the weight of your rocks
So we can have a standard by which to compare
You men, don't worry if it's short or bent or slender,

And don't judge lest we judge you.

"Now girls, as the principal of Terra Nova High School,
I called you back to say these words:
A girl has been suspended for the rest of the semester
On account of the behavior of which you've all heard
By now. It was a blow to Terra Nova's name.

CH: "Show us the length of your cock.
Are you hung like a beaver or hung like a bear.
Let me check the weight of your rocks
So we can have a standard by which to compare
You men, don't worry if it sits a bit off-centre,
The personality is as important as the member.
Drop your trousers and make the news
And don't judge lest we judge you."

Don't judge lest we judge you, with no pants on.
Don't judge lest we judge you, and find you wanting.
Don't judge lest we judge you,
Throw away your rulers and your ribbons and such,
And don't judge lest ye be judged.
Without a shirt.
