There was a young man named McNameter
Whose mistress kept calling him amateur.
Says she Your technique
Is too rough and antique
And your rhythm's iambic pentameter!

They don't have to be dirty or clean, just peripherally about music. I got into a singing thing about limericks at a party recently and could only come up with a very few that were at all musical. There must be more! And no nitpicking on whether rhythm is music or poetry...

One of my favorite ren-faire groups (Wench Works) has done "The limerick Song" for years....basically just about any limerick, strung together with:

"That was a very nice verse
Sing me another one
Just like the other one
Boom pecker, pecker
Boom pecker, pecker

Wolfgang, not bad, but very few... come on catters, there must be more! And MMario, we string ours together with the old Oscar Brand Ayayayay, in china they do it for chili, so here comes another verse that's worse than the other verse, so waltz me around again, Willie!

Reminds me of the connection between the identical verses of the old Henry the Eighth song about the "wider next door (she's been married 7 times before, and every one was a Henry...): Second (or Third, or whatever) verse, same as the first! A little bit louder and a little bit worse!

Geez, Mrrz! You know, Herman's Hermits, '60's British Invasion group, sang "I'm Henry The Eighth, I Am," "There's A Kind of Hush," "Into Something Good," "Can't You Hear My Heart Beat?" "Mrs.Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter"...ah...HH rulz! Sorry, no limericks from me...except the tune, la la la!

Ah, bon. I knew that song because my sisters sang it to me, I had no idea who'd actually done it! There's a kind of hush - isn't that by the same people who did Winchester Cathedral? All sounds very 50's to me, before my time... but surely you can come up with a limerick or two, it doesn't have to have been PUBLISHED -

There once was a trekkie named Mbo
Whose musical talent was so
Amazingly grand
It would span the whole land
If he'd only get out there and GO!

An angel with gossamer wings/ Said, "I've done a few terible things."/ But I don't think they will carp/ 'Cause I am good on the harp/ Abd I got here by pulling some strings.

Once at a musical bash
An old crone made up songs in a flash
But whenever she sang,
Her one central fang
Slashed her lip in a terrible gash

(You didn't say they had to make sense)

OK, Mrr, it's a bit sycophantic, but a comradely sentiment for all that.

I can only think of one folk song that's in limerick metre, and that is "Poverty Knock" - can anyone add any others?

When the luthier Christian F Martin From his mentor, Herr Staufer was partin' He said "I'm away to the U S of A Where in Nazareth an new shop I'm startin'"

An original

A piper from far Inverness Played instrumentals while wearing a dress, For three-four he looked great, But while piping six-eight Both chanter and shift looked a mess.

Goodnight
