I know Big Bruce, by the Country Gentleman, if that would help, sounds as if it might be the same slant, or is Nige not a giveaway name?

Big Nige
(Steve Womack)

I can't forget the day he came into my life
His eyes cut through me like a switch blade knife
He stood five foot four, weighed seven stone two
And if he spoke at all he just said boo

Big Nige, Big Nige, big bad Nige

He wore a lovely little number in Salmon pink silk
And he posed at the bar wit a glass of warm milk
A smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye
I thought if that boy's straight then pigs can fly

Well he worked up high and he worked down low
He worked where most men just wouldn't go
He must have been to Africa or worked at London Zoo
Cos someone once told me he'd seen a cockatoo

He took me out shopping I think Monday last week
And we both bought hats from a flash Boutique
I bought a leather one to match me leather belt
Nige was undecided in the end he got felt

Well the end came late one Saturday night
When he challenged seven miners to a bar room fight
They chased him though the town they were rough and they were boisterous (I love that word boisterous)
Nige hid in a church and they kicked him in the Cloisters

There you go

Subject: Lyr Add: SMALL SAD SAM (Deane/Skylar)
From: John MacKenzie
Date: 09 Jun 07 - 07:32 AM

Anybody remember the parody of Big Bad John called Small Sad Sam, it came out soon after the original?
G.

Sung by Phil McLean - Small Sad Sam

Written by Eddie V. Deane and Sunny Skylar
year 1961

(Small sad Sam, small sad Sam)
Here's a tale of a man who was puny and weak
Stood four foot six in his stocking feet
Kinda narrow in the shoulder and heavy in the waist
Everything about him seemed to be misplaced, small Sam
(Small sad Sam)

He slid into town one rainy night
Runnin' like a dog away from a fight
He had a pretty big mouth for a guy his size
And everything he said was a pack of lies, small Sam
(Small sad Sam)

One day he got on a downtown bus
First thing you know there was an awful fuss
They threw Sam off into the street
For trying to steal an old lady's seat, bad Sam
(Small bad Sam)

One day nobody knows what for
An elevator stuck on the eighty-fifth floor
Some cables broke and so it's said
That car just hung there by a thread
The women were calm and the men were wild
But Sam screamed and cried like a little child
He squeezed himself through the emergency door
And pulled himself up to the eighty-sixth floor,
Small Sam, chicken Sam (Small chicken Sam)

And then instead of helpin' others get free
Sam said, "I'm lookin' out for me"
The cable snapped and all the way down
They cursed out Sam 'till they hit the ground, small Sam
(Small sad Sam)

Now someday Sam's gonna get his due
And when he does I'll make a bet with you
There ain't nobody even gonna pass a hat
Cause Sam was nothin' but a no good cat
(Small sad Sam) Yes, small Sam
(Small sad Sam) Chicken Sam
(Small sad Sam) No good Sam
(Small sad Sam)
FADE:
(Small sad Sam)

Hi,
Are you the guy who sang the Big Bad Nige song on New Faces many years ago? If yes, then I have to tell you that I taped the performance on audio cassette and still play it regularly (have just been playing it which is what prompted me to search for you again, a task which has taken me many many hours over the years as I didn't have an artist name just the words to the song to go by).

Please let me know if it was you or if you know who I'm on about.
Many thanks,

Darren.

I searched Spotify for "Steve Womack" and found nothing.

(Spotify allows you to search performers' names, song titles, and album titles, but it does not list songwriters as such.)

However I discovered that there is now a rapper who goes by the name Big Nige!

Subject: Lyr Add: THE BALLAD OF IRVING (Frank Gallop)
From: GUEST,Mark
Date: 17 Apr 13 - 01:01 PM

Another parody:

THE BALLAD OF IRVING
Frank Gallop


He was short and fat, and rode out of the West
With a Mogen David on his silver vest.
He was mean and nasty right clear through,
Which was kinda weird, 'cause he was yellow too.

They called him Irving.
Big Irving.
Big, short Irving.
Big, short, fat Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

He came from the old Bar Mitzvah spread,
With a 10-gallon yarmulke on his head.* [see below]
He always followed his mother's wishes,
Even on the range he used two sets of dishes.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big sissy Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

A hundred and forty-one could draw faster than he,
But Irving was looking for one forty-three.
Walked into Sol's Saloon like a man insane,
And ordered three fingers of two cents plain.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big sport Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

*****

(The following lines were edited out of the original release, and are only in
the version available on Dr. Demento's 20th Anniversary Collection.)

One day Bad Max happened into town.
His aim was to shoot fat Irving down.
Bad Max said, "Draw, and draw right now!"
And Irving drew, drew a picture of a cow.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big gunfighter Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

*****

The James Boys was comin' on a train at first sun,
And the town said, "Irving, we need your gun."
When that train pulled in at the break of dawn,
Irving's gun was there, but Irving was gone.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big help, Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

Well, finally Irving got three slugs in the belly.
It was right outside the Frontier Deli.
He was sittin' there twirlin' his gun around,
And butterfingers Irving gunned himself down!

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big dum-dum Irving.
Big dum-dum dead Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.
Really.

*The line about the 10-gallon yarmulke was on the original LP, but the single
version and subsequent LP pressings substituted the line:
Schlepping a salami and pumpernickel bread.
This substitution was made because the record company felt the joke would be
lost on non-Jewish listeners.
