Subject: Hail, Hail the 7th of October

I recently heard a parody the chorus of which went something like
Hail, Hail, the 7th of October,
The very first day we're likely to be sober
We got drunk and stayed that way
Since following the hobby horse on the 1st of May

I know that's not quite right but hopefully someone will recognise it even from that. Jude

Never heard this parody of Dave Webber's brilliant song. However, I've just been inspired to make this attempt meself.

OCTOBER SONG
(New words by Steve Freedman, With profuse apologies to Dave Webber, who wrote the tune and the original words.)

Summer time has gone at last-o
Some might say it was none too fast-o
The festival season is just over
At last we've reached the Seventh of October

CHORUS: Hail, Hail, the Seventh of October,
The very first day we're likely to be sober
We got drunk and stayed that way
Since following the 'Oss on the 1st of May

Padstow, Helston, are so handy
Cleethorpes, Middlewich, and Mersey Shanty
Four Fools, Beverley, Warwick and Cleckheaton
Towersey and Sidmouth they can't be beaten.

Never let it come to pass-o
We should fail to raise a glass-o
Sing and dance and drink and play
We finish in October what we start in May.

Autumn it has come around-o
Leaves are lying on the ground-o
We'll go home, our livers for to rest
And argue all winter as to which was best.

You need to use the html code for break--see the HTML section of the FAQ. It's the first thread listed.

Original song you heard is by Jon Heslop. And yes, Dave has heard it!

Jon Heslop wrote 7th of October, with apologies to Dave Webber, who he did sing it to before he took it out.

Chorus
Hail, hail the 7th of October
The earliest date I'm likely to be sober,
We got in an awful way,
Following the 'Obby 'Oss to greet the May.


1. Winter time has gone and passed and
Most of Springtime we've been plastered,
Summers going the very same way,
I blame it on the 'Obby 'Oss and 1st of May.

Sorry, pressed the wrong button.....

2.    My poor head has started to ring - o
A hair of the dog would be just the thing 'cos
Hangovers on any day
Are never quite as bad as on the 2nd of May.

3.    Never let it come to pass that
I should have an empty glass
All the beer I've put away
Should be enough to last until the 1st of May.

'Oss 'Oss

Here're some related lines I came up with sometime before the 2004 elections...

Hail, hail, the first Tuesday - o
For it is Election Day - o
Send the cowboy on his way
Drink to the old ass on Election Day

("ass" = Democrats' donkey)

But never let me hear you say

I like John's version - inevitably as he's a wonderful writer. Not sure I've actually sung mine out at all actually. If I'd noticed this thread had been resurrected earlier I might have sung it to Dave last week when he came to the Bothy.
