DT Lyrics:





Subject: Roy Bailey, 'You need skin...'
From: GUEST,k_a_horne@yahoo.co.uk
Date: 28 Nov 01 - 01:19 PM

Roy Bailey - childrens CD including a song with the following chorus (if I remember correctly):

"You need skin,Take good care of it, don't harm a hair of it, you couldn't live without it. Keep it clean, soapy water everyday keeps the dirt and germs away, cos you need skin"

I heard this song at Cambridge folk festival and am now trying to find it and/or the CD it is on.

'Skin' is a Leon Rosselson song. Roy Bailey performs it on the album "Why Does It Have To Be Me?" See this page

No luck with lyrics yet

Do I remember Max Bygraves singing this? Is it the same tune as "you need hands"? Or is it too late at night or was it "you need friends" or am I too old and why do I keep on asking silly questions.........

I know it's not the song you're looking for, but you might want to take a look at Alan Sherman's parody, YOU GOTTA HAVE SKIN. Although the DT doesn't say so, it's sung to the tune of that old standard YOU GOTTA HAVE HEART.

Bailey's version differs a bit from what breezy posted:

SKIN
(Leon Rosselson)

CHORUS: You need skin; take good care of it.
Don't harm a hair of it.
What would you do without it?
Keep it clean; soapy water every day
Will wash the dirt and smells away
'Cause you need skin.

1. Whether you're fat or whether you're thin,
It keeps the germs from crawling in.
Whether you're skinny or whether you're stout,
It stops the blood from trickling out.

2. Whether you're black or whether you're brown,
It keeps your tummy from tumbling down.
Whether you're silly or whether you're smart,
It keeps your bones from falling apart.

3. Whether you're dark or whether you're fair,
Skin's the thing for growing hair.
It's waterproof in rainy weather,
And keeps the bits of your body together.

Knew I'ld missed a verse, but I like to finish with a curdling ''blood trickling out'' , kids love it as a climactic end.Thanks Stewie.

Actually, Okthen was spot on. Max Bygraves had a hit with 'You need hands'. he self parodied a couiple of times on TV with a two liner

   ' You got to have skin
      To keep yourself in'

Leon Rosselson sings this (very enthusiastically, I might add) on his CD Questions - Songs and Stories for Children CFCD 004 - Fuse Records.
Leon (vocal & guitar), Fiz Shapur (piano),and the children - Amy Dawson, Yolanda Rosselson, Alphonse Ryan, Ella Ryan and John-Jo Ryan (chorus). Leon says that he wrote it for Inter-Action (thanks to Ed Berman). There's a good version of 'Why does it have to be me?' on the same CD. I phoned him up one day, because I wasn't quite sure of the words and he very kindly emailed the words for both of these songs. I'm very grateful to him.
