Subject: Song From the movie Sharpes Sword
From: Dave (the ancient mariner)
Date: 07 May 00 - 02:31 PM

John Tams character (Rifleman Hagman) sings to entrertain a group of children and their mothers around the campfire. The comic song he sings is really a fun song and I can only pick a few words out from the video. My children are constantly bugging me to learn all the words and now the admiral is too! Please help. Can anyone provide me with the complete lyrics..Yours, Aye. Dave

Touch my head
thats my share
Thats my louse trap
And you can plat there

Louse trap, lookers out, snotter box
Chimney chops, breast plate, N'apple stringer
thigh a thacker, knee a nacker, toe a tripper
I love my dear, the more I love my lover draws near

Touch her on the arm
Thats my dare
Thats my-----?
And we can play there

These are the lyrics that I still sing, from a "Yetties" vinyl album.

Some of them have a bit of licence attach to them, which makes them scan & rhyme. I hope they help. Best...Dave

In their 1971 Songbook, the Yetties say that they collected the song from Walt Watts, a regular at the Digby Tap, Sherborne (Dorset) in 1968. They added that 'after a few cups of cider Walt will stand up and give a rewndering of this song, usually getting more attention from the customers than we ever do.'

Don't know this movie, but I heard a version of this funny cumulative song in England, back in '79. Supposedly, someone would trick a pretty young thing into standing up on top of a stool, and then would point to the body-part being sung about! (Don't know that it ever happened this way, but it makes a good story!)
"Touched her on the toe; that be m' share; that be m' toe-tapper, n' you can play there. Toe-tapper (fill in more of the cumulative song as you go)loves my dear; the more I loves, my dear draw near."

out-lookers, snot-box, chatterbox, chinny-chops, breast-plate, navel-stringer, funny thinger, thigh-thacker, knee-knacker, toe-tapper
(I'm probably missing some of the body-parts!)

I remember John Waltham (from Dorset) standing Graham O'Callaghan on a chair to sing this at the English National Festival in Sutton Bonington!

I still sing this occasionally and find that a really loud CLAP instead of the offending word is very effective.
