Subject: 'Teasing' songs
From: Peter K (Fionn)
Date: 30 May 00 - 08:37 AM

May of made a mess of posting this. Thanks Joe, if you have to tidy up.
The thread on improper language brought this to mind. There are many songs in which rhymning patterns etc are used to create anticipation of vulgarities, which are either averted at the last moment or at least resolve innocently. For instance:
Oh she's got a lovely country residence (twice)
She's got a lovely cunt
Got a lovely cunt
Got a lovely country residence.
Children, needless to say, think they're hilarious. Have such songs ever been collected together? I don't know if the genre is sufficiently recognised to have a name, but I thnk I've heard a couple of them called "teasing" songs. Anyone know good examples?

Hi Fionn,
Thare's a whole group of songs, usually in round form which appear innocuous when read but become ribald when sung in just the way you describe. They're called "catches" and were very popular with English singing clubs during eras of increased sexual repression (like the last 200 years!). Henry Purcel wrote many catches which are still widely sung.

And of course there is the "Farmer Song" with about 20 verses or more.

"There once was a farmer who stood on a rick
Amusing the neighbours by waving his—

Hands to the farm hand Who was shovelling the mire
While the young boy in the corner Was pulling his—

Horse from the stable To follow the hunt
As the lady in her bedroom Was powdering her—

Face with the contents Of a beautiful box....etc. etc.

I have all the words somewhere if somebody needs them. That was one delightful song in which we gloried during my early youth. Oh, the thrilling naughtyness of it all...without saying one bad word.

a German example:

Subject: Lyr Add: SWEET VIOLETS
From: GUEST,Roger the skiffler
Date: 05 Jun 00 - 03:54 AM

This is a different and more coherent (?) version to the three under this title in the DT.

My father told me this song was popular in the Royal Air Force in W.W.II but internal evidence suggests it belongs to an earlier generation before mains sewage when honey waggons came round to collect the contents of earth closets by men using buckets rather than machines with suction hoses as on septic tanks nowadays. I learned it from my father and grandfather when we went fishing at Minworth outside Birmingham where there was a large sewage works and the local pub, whatever the brewery called it, was known as "The Muckman". That would be a better title for the song as it might otherwise get into the flower category. I assume the tune is a Victorian parlour song about real violets. (?) The "ee" in sweet is drawn out.

SWEET VIOLETS

They say that your father's a muckman
He works in the middens all night
And when he comes home in the morning
He's covered all over in—

CHORUS: Sweet Violets
Sweeter than the roses
Covered all over from head to foot
In sweet violets.

He never comes home until breakfast
And there on the wall he would sit
Have four or five mouthfuls of breakfast
And five or six mouthfuls of— CHORUS

They say that he's kind to his children
To please him they try all their might
And when he's dead, they will bury him
In five or six acres of— CHORUS

(May be other verses I've forgotten)

How about the Fred Wedlock song 'The Handier Hosehold Help'? 'You can stick it down the toilet, you can bung it on the walls; It comes in half-pint cannisters for spreading on your bannisters.....'

'It will insulate your kitchen if you spread it nice and thick; It will gant your fondest wishes and get eggstains off your dishes....' and so on.

He also sings the song about the vicar who finds a frog which turns into a choirboy - the last line makes it a 'teasing' song I reckon. Does anybody have all the words?

Subject: Lyr Add: THE VICAR AND THE FROG (Fred Wedlock)
From: Tony in Darwin
Date: 06 Jun 00 - 07:21 AM

G'day Trevor


THE VICAR AND THE FROG
As recorded by Fred Wedlock on "The Folker and Frollicks" (1966)

There once was a very, very holy vicar
Was a-walking along the street one day,
When he heard a little voice say: "Excuse me, vicar.
Help me, vicar!" the voice did say.
And the vicar looked around, and all he could see
Was a tiny frog sitting on the ground.
"My dear little froggy, did you speak to me?
Was it you who spoke when I heard that sound?"

"Oh, yes," said the frog. "Oh, help me, vicar!
I'm really not a frog, you see.
I'm a choir-boy, really, but a wicked fairy
Cast a nasty spell on me;
And the only way I can be saved
From that evil spell," the little frog said,
"Is for someone to take me and put me in a place
Where a holy man has laid his head."

So the vicar took him home and put him on his pillow,
And there he laid till the break of day,
And the very next morning, a blessed miracle!
The spell was broken, I'm glad to say.
And there was a choir-boy in bed with the vicar,
And I hope you'll think this all makes sense,
For there, my Lord and members of the jury,
Rests the case for the defence.


Cheers,
Tony

Hi,

Rudy Carell sang a good version of Sweet Violets. It's based loosely on Sweet Violets 2 in the DT, however, the chorus has an "explanation" for the somewhat unusual structure of the text.


Goethe war gut! (Cy Coben, Charles Grean, Thomas Woitkewitsch)

Klaus-Hinrich war Bauer, kam niemals zur Ruh,
versorgte die Schweine, den Stier und die Oma,
die meinte, "Du weißt doch genau:
Ein lediger Landwirt, der braucht eine Fräse!"
Beim Dorfball sah er voller Lust
ein Mädchen mit einer phantastischen Brille.
Sie tanzten nicht eng aus dem Grund:
Er roch so nach Mist und sie roch aus dem

Goethe war gut! Mann, der konnte reimen!
Wenn ich es versuch, schwitz ich Wasser und Blut,
und ich merk jedesmal: Goethe war gut!

Sie kam aus der Stadt, und sie hatte Niveau.
Besonders gefiel ihm ihr kräftiger Hunger,
und was sie versprach, fand er nett.
Sie war bestimmt einsame Spitze im Kochen.
Er wußte zwar, was jeder weiß:
Die Ehe ist letztlich doch der größte Segen,
und sie litt an jenem Komplex:
Männer wolln immer nur eins, und zwar

Goethe war gut! Mann, der konnte reimen!
Wenn ich es versuch, schwitz ich Wasser und Blut,
und ich merk jedesmal: Goethe war gut!

Er sagte zu ihr: "Du, mein Name ist Sepp!
Ich seh zwar so aus, doch ich bin gar kein Lehrer,
bin Bauer, der heiraten muß."
Darauf gab sie ihm einen ganz heißen Kaffee,
der dünn war, doch Liebe macht blind.
Er nahm sie ins Heu, und sie kriegte einen Schnupfen;
deshalb bat er um ihre Hand,
bald kamen Babies am laufenden

Goethe war gut! Mann, der konnte reimen!
Wenn ich es versuch, schwitz ich Wasser und Blut,
und ich merk jedesmal:
[Verdammt noch mal, der Goethe war so stark.]

For those of you who are less than fluent in German, it might be of interest to know that Jan Boezeroen translated this version to Dutch:


Vondel was goed! (Cy Coben, Charles Grean, Johnny Goverde)

Een boertje uit Brabant, die was er nooit moe
Verzorgde z'n varkens, z'n stier en z'n Oma,
die meende een man zoals jij
Die moet er maar trouwen, dat hoort er zo
's Avonds, heel laat nog, ging hij naar 't bal
En trof daar een meisje en liep in de gaten
want weet je wat zij van hem vond
Hij stonk zo naar mest en hij stonk uit z'n

Vondel was goed! Man, wat kon die rijmen!
Als ik 't probeer, merk ik iedere keer dat ik er nooit wat van
Vondel was goed!

Zij was er een deerne van tweehonderd pond
Het beste beviel hem haar lekkere eetlust,
want eten deed zij voor de pret
Maar liever had hij toch een engel in koken,
Dat kon ze, dat deed zij allang
Maar werd van de liefde en mannen zo droevig,
want zij had een heel groot complex
Kerels, die willen alleen toch maar

Vondel was goed! Man, wat kon die rijmen!
Als ik 't probeer, merk ik iedere keer dat ik er nooit wat van
Vondel was goed!

Op zekere avond, zij vonden elkaar
Zij wou eerst niet meegaan, dat vond hij wat moeilijk,
hij vroeg haar: "Wat wil jij dan doen?"
Zij gaf hem toen eerst een ontzettende koffie,
die slap was maar liefde maakt blind
Ging met hem 't hooi in en kreeg toen een kleurtje,
daarom vroeg hij toen om d'r hand
Er kwamen toen baby's aan lopende

Vondel was goed! Man, wat kon die rijmen!
Als ik 't probeer, merk ik iedere keer dat ik er nooit wat van
Vondel was goed! Man, wat kon die rijmen!
Als ik 't probeer, merk ik iedere keer dat ik er nooit wat van

For those of you who are less than fluent in Dutch, it might be of interest to know that Mysha translated that version back to English:


Shakespeare was Good! (Cy Coben, Charles Grean, Mysha)

Well he was a farmer, I'll tell you this now,
He took care of his pigs and his bull and his Grandma,
Who told him, a man such as he
Ought to get married, that's how it was proper.
That evening he went to a ball
And he met a girl there, for whom he did his best
To please her, but she felt like this:
He reeked of manure, and also of

Shakespeare was good! Man, how he could rhyme them!
Each time I try, I just find that I, really can't write them like
Shakespeare was good!

This maiden was made up of all the right bits
He would just sit there and look at her appetite,
Of which she had no lack,
But he wanted a girl who was good in the kitchen,
Which she was, and had been for years,
But love and the men: They were her greatest sorrows,
For this thought would just made her sick:
That every man always thinks with his

Shakespeare was good! Man, how he could rhyme them!
Each time I try, I just find that I, really can't write them like
Shakespeare was good!

Well, these two they dated for almost a year
But it never went further, which he found a bit difficult,
Then he told her, love would be bliss
And she came up to him and they shared a hot coffee,
That was awful, but it made him wild:
He took her to a haystack and she got embarrassed
So, first they got married, the right thing to do
Got a baby each year, and some years they got

Shakespeare was good! Man, how he could rhyme them!
Each time I try, I just find that I, really can't write them like
Shakespeare was good! Man, how he could rhyme them!
Each time I try, I just find that I, really can't write them like

And said - "you can't swim here its private"

This is a variation on "Miss Lucy Had a Steamboat." It appears in Season 4 Episode 8 of "South Park," titled "Something You Can Do with Your Finger" (2000). I suppose it was specially written for the TV show, and therefore is not true "folklore," but it may well become folklore; a couple of kids have already made videos of themselves singing it. You can hear the South Park version at YouTube. Whoever uploaded it called it "Wendy's C**t Song," but I doubt that the South Park writers gave it an official title.

Remembered from the back seat of the school bus:-

Oh, there's a bloke named Nobby Hall, Nobby Hall
Oh, there's a bloke named Nobby Hall, Nobby Hall
Oh, there's a bloke named Nobby Hall, and he's only got one arm,
And the other one's 'anging on the wall.

Oh, they say he killed his wife, killed his wife,
Oh, they say he killed his wife, killed his wife,
Oh, they say he killed his wife, and it wasn't with a knife,
And the other one's 'anging on the wall.

Oh, the judge's name was Hunt, name was Hunt,
Oh, the judge's name was Hunt, name was Hunt,
Oh, the judge's name was Hunt and he was a silly fool,
And the other one's 'anging on the wall.

Oh, the jury were all crackers, were all crackers,
Oh, the jury were all crackers, were all crackers,
Oh, the jury were all crackers, they said "hang 'im by his neck",
And the other one's 'anging on the wall.

Oh, the parson came at last, came at last,
Oh, the parson came at last, came at last,
Oh, the parson came at last, with his prayer book up his sleeve,
And the other one's 'anging on the wall.

So they put him in a pit in a pit,
Yes, they put him in a pit, in a pit,
So they put him in a pit and they shovelled in the earth,
And the other one's 'anging on the wall.


Happy Days!
