Hey there, Challenge!rs!!

Been a while, hadn't it? Well, no pain, no gain, as the saying goes. The Challenge! is back and beautiful -- clear skies and fantastic songs are predicted for all. So, come on 'Catters, look under the sofa cushions for your special Challenge! pencils, go sit on the porcelain throne, tear off a piece of paper from the roll, and GO FOR IT, CHALLENGE!RS!! ;-)

-- Áine (the Keeper of the Book, recently re-invigorated by her darlin' daughter, Caty, to whom this Challenge! is dedicated. See this thread for details ;-)

(P.S. A great big thanks to Amos for sending me this story, and encouraging me to 'get back in business, damn it!')

Gadzooks, Batman, It's the G-String Gang! Holy Underwear! -- LONDON (Reuters) - Cheeky thieves, dubbed the "G-string Gang" by the British press, made off with thousands of pounds worth of racy underwear after a daylight raid on upmarket lingerie designer Agent Provocateur, a spokesman said on Tuesday.

The central London headquarters of Agent Provocateur, a favorite among celebrities such as Kate Moss and Liz Hurley, was burgled over the weekend by thieves who carried off 27,000 pounds ($40,000) worth of lacy bras, knickers and corsets as well as shoes and jewelry.

"We were all working upstairs when it appears the thieves broke down the front door and managed to steal the collections from the basement," said Agent Provocateur founder Joe Corre.

But the thieves, who got away with the fashion house's new collection, had not made an intelligent choice in targeting such an exclusive boutique, he said.

"The very nature of the designs, being so distinctive, renders them instantly recognizable, making it easier to track the thieves down, whatever they try to do with the collection."

Agent Provocateur is known for its sexy, slinky and expensive designs which include one-off corsets, suspenders, stockings and G-strings. A spokesman for London's Metropolitan Police said the burglary was being investigated but there was no description of the suspects.

When Britons say knickers, that refers to women's panties in general, regardless of the style? It's difficult to think of G-strings as "knickers"...............

AGENT PROVOCATUER
(Tune:Fiddlers Green)

I walked by Headquarters one evening so fair
To view all the models in their underwear!
the bras, thongs and corsets designed for a fee
Knickers and teddies and things I shouldn't see

Chorus:
Wrap her up in silk, leather or latex
Cotton, linen, lace or a fur
The better design is just one of kind
And I'll buy one someday......for my favorite girl!


Suspenders and stockings and g-strings galore
Whenever I see them I want to see more
Unmentionable undies way out of my league
The kind that make any man's heart try to seize

chorus

The window is empty, not a model in sight
I nearly keeled over in shock and in fright
My God! What has happened at my favourite store?
To put scads of police tape on window and door?

chorus

Seems thieves they broke in through the door in the front
And stole the designs worth plenty of blunt
Outrageous! Horrendous! The nerve of those thieves!
I tell you I'm really goin' to get peeved!

chorus

Joe Corre, designer at Pro-voc-a-tuer
He says they'll regret that they burgled his store
The black market won't touch things made one of a kind
One look and the cops will know it's one of mine!

chorus

I hope that Joe's brain it is still crankin' out
those kind of designs that will make a man shout
And soon I would hope to review all his stock
Whenever I stroll by on my evening walk

Wrap her up in silk, leather or latex
Cotton, linen, lace or a fur
The better design is just one of kind
And I'll buy one someday......for my favorite girl!

OK, I'm a little rusty so be kind.......

They had an idea, a quick way to get rich
Cause the banks were too tough and secure
"What do all women want?", said the man in the front,
"Fancy Things, Lacy Tops, Skimpy drawers"

We'll break down the door, move as fast as we can,
And we'll take everything we can hold
To sell most is best, then we'll give all the rest,
To our ladies though they may get cold

So they planned and they plotted, there thoughts were all blotted
With visions of beauty and cash
And they grabbed and they lifted, through undies they sifted
Until they had all they could stash

But as they were leaving, their lungs were still heaving,
Their getaway they had to find
This stuff we just took, thought the tired old crook
Isn't all of it one of a kind?

The problem they thought was not getting caught
But who would be willing to buy
All the panties and stuff, the lace and the fluff
It made them all want to just cry

So one of them said, we're not using our heads,
Let's just give them to all of our ladies
They packed all the frills, for all of their girls,
Who looked and said, "Go to Hades"

Despite all their haste, it can't go to waste
But what they did next was just wrong
To find all the crooks, you only need look
For a guy walking round in a thong.....

The Underwear Burglar's Lament

Tune: No Use Fer the Wimmin
(Click to Play)


I got no use for these undies
They're vibrantly sexy with sleaze
And I wouldn't feel right with a teddy
Over cotton BVD's
They're sexy and slim and salacious
They're tempting and naughty and sly
Though the visions they bring are bodacious
It's enough to make me cry!

I had a friend was a minor shoplifter
He was cleaver, immoral and quick
But he talked me into big trouble
With his quick-riches boudoir shtick
Now my flat is stacked high up with fashions
The bras tower over my head
And I can't bring my cute girlfriend over
'Cuz I know she'd cut me dead

These G-strings are no use to a feller;
As supporters, they're really too tight.
And I can't hand them out to the kiddies,
For attaching to their kites
All the girls I know would be offended
And ask what I mean to suggest
If I mailed them a corset for Christmas
So I think I'll move out West.

Yes, I'm bound for the wide open spaces,
Where menfolk know just who they are
And the gals wear ten-gallons and Levis,
Not them see-through bras of stars!
I'll change my name and my country
And out in the Wild West I'll stay
'Cause I'd rather wrassle a rattler,
Than a G-string, any day!

Maybe it's not really unexpected with an outlaw ballad - it keeps on escaping. I've recaptured it once more, and this should be the end of it.

Come gather round me children, a story you will hear
how Pretty Boy Floyd he paid a call to Agent Provocateur.

It was in the City of London, where the rich and famous throng,
Liz Hurley in her safety pins, and Kate Moss in a thong.

And Pretty Boy came a-calling, and he left his calling card
Saying "I've stripped this place quite naked - I hope you won't take it hard".

And the police they told the papers, in a manner rather coarse,
"We've working on our photofits with the undercover force."

They pulled in the usual suspects, and they put them on parade,
in woolly drawers and G-strings, I am very much afraid.

But the evidence was scanty, and everyone agreed,
that even in the first place it was not a lot to see.

And Pretty Boy went on the run, but he couldn't sell the stuff,
So he had to wear it for himself - for a robber that's real tough.

And there's a poor old farmer woke one night, her's the story that he told
How Pretty Boy came a calling, in an outfit very bold.

"And he left this note behind him, and a parcel for the wife.
And I've not seen the like of it - mind I've led a sheltered life."

Well, as through the world I've rambled, I've seen funny men galore
But an outlaw dressed like Pretty Boy, I've not seen that before.

Yes, as through this world you ramble, and I don't think that I'm wrong,
You'll rarely see an outlaw in a G string and a thong.

DON'T WEAR ANY PANTS THAT ARE MADE BY THE CHUCKS!
By Isaac McKittery

Good luck till all here, McKittery's the name
No, I'll not have a sate, thanks a lot all the same
For I've only dropped by and I won't stay for long
I'll just stop for a minute till sing yez a song
I'm normally found in the thread 'bout Drumcree
It's the type of a thread that appeals well till me
For there you'll find boys that are loyal and true
Till the orange and black and the red, white and blue

CHORUS
So here's till the boys from Tanderagee
Who're up till their oxters in glar in Drumcree
I'll sing this wee song, then come back in a flash
Till wear my white gloves and my bowler and sash

I went till Nutts Corner one Sunday of late
The crack till be had at the market is great
I met Kyle from Ahoghill and Derryadd Sam
And we spoke with great fondness of the town by the Bann
Until then round a stall a great crowd we did spy
"What's goin' on there, boy?" says Sammy till I
"Let's have a wee jewk", says I till my crew
And straight till the stall the three of us flew

CHORUS

There wiz knickers and drawers and g-strings and thongs
And all sorts of wonderful carryin'-on
Crotchless and lacy and frilly and sheer
(I imagined the boul' Rhondda decked out in that gear
It made my heart race and my mouth went all dry
Thon image will haunt me right up till I die!)
There was belts for suspenders and bras with no holders
To carry the pendulous paps of their owners

CHORUS

"What is the make of this stuff?" then I asked
When your man whispered till me, I let out a gasp
"Good people of Ulster, don't part with your cash
And buy any of this Republican trash!"
"Republican, how?" Brother Sammy did say
"A look at the label will gave it away …
For these knickers are made in Falls, believe me,
It says PROVO-cateur quite plainly to see!"

CHORUS

Our anger boiled over; we true sons of Bill,
Destroyed every stitch, every ribbon and frill
And trampled the rags into the thick clay
That's the blight of each farmer who farms near Lough Neagh
And we stood as one man when our work it was done
And the songs of our heritage loudly we sung
"The Boyne Water", "The Sash" and "The Magheralin Ducks"
And "Don't Wear Any Pants That Are Made By The Chucks"

CHORUS

Land of the Midnight Fun

The thieves parked their truck at the pawn shop and went in to talk to Big Sam
Who said "man this stuff is way too hot...what kinda merchant do you think that I am?
Now this pink-gartered number's a knock-out, never saw such a sight in my life
And though I can't buy the rest of your stock out, I'll take this as a gift for my wife."

CHO: There were thongs and garters and panties
And silk stockings in dozens of tints
Crotchless and lacy to drive a man crazy
But damn near useless to fence, to fence
They were damn near useless to fence

After visiting numerous hock shops, and just selling one item at a time
The crooks began to reconsider their chosen careers in crime
Until they met with one Robert McGinnis, a bush pilot who would (for some bribes)
Carry a consignment of contraband panties up North to the Inuit Tribes

And far from the madding crowds, and the reach of Scotland Yard's might
Eskimo Men bought their wives lingerie, for comfort on long Arctic nights
And after two years of McGinnis's flights, there was never a glimmer of trouble
And under the glow of the bright Northern Lights, the Tribes' population had doubled.

CHO...

Aine, thank heavens you're back -- I'd have no creative life whatsoever without you. Some would say I haven't much in any case.

Try on this Underwear
(Tune = Take off your thirsty boots, by Eric Anderson)

The girls are wearing boxer shorts
Or boring cotton briefs
From L.L. Bean or other dorks
They've only brought you grief
But the plain white bras, and boxer shorts
Will soon be hid in shame
Once they've put on the lace and silk
It won't come off again

CHORUS: So try on this underwear
And let's see you strut
The diamond-studded wonderbra
Makes you look a high-price slut
And maybe I can sell you one
And maybe I can try
I'm just looking for a bustier
Or a teddy in your size.

I know you're not a model on
The fashion mogul's trail
But even you can bill and coo
And wag a little tail
Try this Givenchy garter belt
And Lauren's fishnet hose
They're bargain basement, priced to sell
From London's finest shows.

(Chorus)

Lace teddies and Stiletto heels
With a little french perfume
Will change the way men look at you
When you walk in a room --
Just do not get too curious
Why it's selling for a song
It's genuine, I swear, although
The label tags are gone.

Chorus.

Argh -- last line first verse should be "Once they've put on the lace and silk..." I shouldn't be allowed to copy edit. Well, actually, I'm not.

Deda - brilliant! As I was scanning your lyric, in my head I heard your verses to the melody of Bruce Cockburn's "Shipwrecked at the Stable Door" - it works perfectly! (The chorus doesn't, but that's Bruce's fault, nor yours).

Big bravos all around to the other writers, too. Well done!

Cheers,

PAUL & SILAS

Well, Paul & Silas, bound in jail, all night long (black and lacy)
Oh, Paul & Silas, bound in jail, all night long (red and racy)
Yes, Paul & Silas bound in jail, all night long (wild and cracy)
"But who did deliver this for free?"

Well the jailer brought them contraband, all night long (he was kinky)
Yes the jailer brought them contraband, all night long (tight and slinky)
Oh the jailer brought them contraband, all night long (kinda hinky!)
"But who did deliver this for free?"

Well, they posed like trash and their thunder-thighs roared, all night long (they were dancin'!)
Oh, they posed like trash and their thunder-thighs roared, all night long (they were prancin'!)
Yes, they posed like trash and their thunder-thighs roared, all night long (soul-enhancin'!)
"But who did deliver this for free?"

Well, that old jail just reeled and rocked, all night long (such high fashion!)
Oh, that old jail just reeled and rocked, all night long (silken passion!)
Yes, that old jail just reeled and rocked, all night long (purple satin!)
"But who did deliver this for free?"

So Paul and Silas prayed and prayed, all night long ("where'd it come from?")
Oh, Paul and Silas prayed and prayed, all night long ("lookin' handsome!")
Yes, Paul and Silas prayed and prayed, all night long ("gimme freedom!")
"But who did deliver this for free?"

Well...... (long pause..... then, slow and quiet, it resumes, building steam for a big finish....)

... they heard the answer from on high, all night long ("are ya kiddin'?")
Oh, they heard the answer from on high, all night long ("you bullshittin'?")
Yes they heard the answer from on high, all night long ("you're forgettin'!")
"Deliverin'!? Why, that's My specialty!"

Dear Deda (aka one very creative lil' sister, anytime of the day!), here's your well earned B.L.O.B. for your hirsute hilarity in:

The girls are wearing boxer shorts
Or boring cotton briefs
From L.L. Bean or other dorks
They've only brought you grief
But the plain white bras, and boxer shorts
Will soon be hid in shame
Once they've put on the lace and silk
It won't come off again



And to Weezie, a B.L.O.B. for this fantastic fit o' fantasy (and boy howdy, was it hard to pick from such a great song!):

Well, they posed like trash and their thunder-thighs roared, all night long (they were dancin'!)
Oh, they posed like trash and their thunder-thighs roared, all night long (they were prancin'!)
Yes, they posed like trash and their thunder-thighs roared, all night long (soul-enhancin'!)

To the tune of "The Charladies' Ball" as sung by Frank Harte on ""Daybreak and a Candle-End"

THE UNDERWEAR HAUL
You may talk of your lingerie, wee clothes and undies
Your bras and your knickers, your garters and all
But wait till I tell you of the gas that we had
On the night that we came on the underwear haul
It was down by the docks, that we found a big box
"Shall we have a wee look-see" says I to my mate
The stuff that we spied as we both looked inside
"Oh mother of God" says herself "This is great!"

At the underwear haul, people said one and all
You're the belle of the ball, Mrs Brannigan
There was peephole and crotchless (thank God they were spotless)
And some that I'll never have on again, bedad
There was lacy frillies and leopard-print
And some that would scarce fit a doll!
And some had no back ... just a string up your bum-crack
The night that we came on the underwear haul

There was some that were tiny and some that were shiny
The sort of oul' yokes that might dampen your bush
There's some you might wear and your oul' derriere
Might be damn near bare and might make your man blush
There was zips, aye and straps and to cup your oul' baps
Some underwired yoke that fair gave me a lift
If my man caught an eyeful of me in this trifle
He'd be asking, no doubt, if I fancied a shift!

At the underwear haul, people said one and all
You're the belle of the ball, Mrs Brannigan
There was eyelets and poppers (I near came a cropper)
And some that I'll never have on again, bedad
There was lacy frillies and leopard-print
And some that would scarce fit a doll!
And some, truth be toul' wouldn't keep out much coul'
The night that we came on the underwear haul

There was some that were see-through and some that were pee-through
On account of the fact that their gusset was split
"That's handy!" said Mandy "When you're feeling randy
You lift up your skirt and for duty you're fit!"
There was knickers in leather, I'm sure they won't weather
I like to have things that will wash - don't we all
So when all's said and done, it was quare bloody fun
But I'd rather my oul' drawers than the underwear haul

At the underwear haul, people said one and all
You're the belle of the ball, Mrs Brannigan
There was satin and ribbons (they were gorgeous, no fibbing!)
And some that I'll never have on again, bedad
There was lacy frillies and leopard-print
And some that would scarce fit a doll!
It was gas for a while, but give me the oul' style
Than all that weird gear in the underwear haul

Brilliant, Derry.

I'm feeling out of practice, but here goes:

Secret Agent Provocateur

I'm your local secret agent –
Agent Provocateur
And a tale I've got to tell you
So listen well, for sure
A tale to make you laugh
And not to make you cry
To bring a smile onto your lips
A twinkle to your eye.

Now here's my cover story
I've set up as a shop
Where local lads and lasses
Are likely for to stop
It's not just for the locals
They come from west and east
For we please all the senses
And give the eyes a feast

You can keep Victoria's Secret
And Janet Reger's tame
When you see the stuff we're stocking
The rest don't seem the same
Now I'm sure you've guessed my story
I've dropped hints so you can see
That my undercover story
Sells the finest lingerie

There are arab sheikhs who buy stuff
To kit out their harems
There are kings from foreign countries
Who like to dress their queens
Russian spies have honey traps
And gangsters have their molls
They all love our bras, suspender belts
and lacy baby dolls

Last week our stock was stolen
Thieves made off with a lot
Of Basques and lacy knickers
And other stuff that's hot
They came, they saw, they liked it
They made off in their van
And me a secret agent –
We'll catch them if we can

But catching will prove easy
Like falling off a log
No need to call on Scotland Yard
To search with bloodhound dog
I'll tell you why I'm certain
The stock will all be found
You see every bra was underwired –
Wired up for sound!

As to the B.L.O.B.s, here's one for you, derrymacash, for this hilarious description of the high-fashion hiney hiders:

At the underwear haul, people said one and all

I admit it, folks!

I burgled the underwear shop.

FOLSOM PRISON BLUES #679

I hear those frillies rustling; they drive me round the bend
I ain't wore no lacy briefs since Lord I don't know when
I'm stuck in Folsom Prison; time keeps dragging on
Those people wearing g-strings; I'm in plain long johns

When I was a baby, my mama told me "Son
Always be a good boy, don't wear satin next your bum"
But I wore some silky tangas, I wondered how they'd feel
And now I've graduated to wearing kitten heels

I'll bet there's rich folks wearing Janet Reger next their flesh
I'll bet they'd blow a gasket if they thought that Johnny Cash
Hankered after Gossard, and other lingerie
Like those fancy folks are wearing, and that's what tortures me

If I was out of prison, if they let me out this cell
I'd take a trip to gay Paree, and in some cheap hotel
I'd slip into some lacies, some swanky lan-jer-ay
And I'd let that silky smoothness blow my blues away

I'm sore dismayed! I wrote a song for the challenge, but when I submitted it, it just disappeared! And I wrote it right here so that I don't have a copy; I doubt that this recreation will be half as good.

THE STORE WAS FULL OF MARVELS
(The Banks Are Made of Marble)

I've pilfered cross this sceptered isle,
John O'Groats down to Land's End.
Things of all kinds, would blow your mind
If laid out end to end.

But small stuff began to bore me
I wante one big score
So that when wealth came, I'd earn my fame,
Then I heard of Agent Provocateur.

CHORUS:

'Tis a store that's full of marvels,
Satin bras and lace-trimmed drawers,
Suspender belts of exotic pelts
That a Playboy reader would adore.

Breaking in was easy
Flimsy frou-frous filled our lorry;
A scarlet bustier was making me lustier
Which means never having to say you're sorry!

Back at the flat we sorted the loot,
Found no two bits alike.
But we found it tough to fence the stuff
And were told to take a hike.

CHORUS

So here we sit midst naughty bits
Looking forward to being Yuletide Santys
Whose ambitious folly produced no lolly
Hope our girlfriens like split-crothed panties.

So wide boys and burglars all
Of one thing you can be sure:
You may polish your knob but you won't make a bob
At Agent Provacteur!

Welcome back, Áine!

I couldn't take time for this Challenge! until after the NW Folklife Festival, and I haven't read the other entries yet (except titles), so here's my humble offering. (I say "humble" because it's extremely derivative of the Winter Wonderland parody sung (and written?) by Bob Rivers. I also took the liberty of presuming to know the thieves' gender and motive.)

Genie §;- )


Walkin' Off With Women's Underwear
Tune: Winter Wonderland - Smith / Bernard, 1934
Parody lyrics by Genie (with insincere aplogies to Bob Rivers

Sirens wail, and I'm list'nin'.
On my brow, sweat is glist'nin'.
They're hot on our tail, but we ain't been nailed
Walkin' Off With Women's Underwear.

Gone away are the boxers,
And those drab cotton dockers,
I clutch my new thong, as we sneak along,
Walkin' Off With Women's Underwear


(bridge)
Lacy undies make me feel so naughty
Make my "glutes' and 'pecs" feel, oh, so sweet!
I love to feel 'em on my manly body
And give myself a wedgie for a treat!

Bustiers, bras and corsets
Fit so tight I gotta force it,
But it gives me a high
Havin' lace on my thigh,
So, I'm Walkin' Off With Women's Underwear.


Instrumental Break

Agent Provocateur's a
Maker of haute couture, so
We're clever enough
To be pinchin' their stuff
And Walkin' Off With Women's Underwear

Katie Moss and Liz Hurley
Are such cute little girlies,
But wait till you see
Bubba and me
Modelling our 'hot' new underwear!

(2nd bridge)
On our privates, no more plain old cotton,
Engineered for stodgy Parson Brown.
Folks say, "Are you married?"
I think, "Not!" -- When
I can do the job myself in silken gowns!"

Trouble is, when we wear 'em,
Struttin' like a Sultan's harem,
It's hard to conceal
That these bras were 'a steal'
When we walked off with the women's underwear.

Aisle Of Lingerie
Parody of "Isle of Innisfree," based on "The Lake Isle Of Innisfree" by William Butler Yeats; tune: "Dreams of Alwyn"

I've met some folks who say that I'm a lecher,
And I've no doubt that what the say is right,
But, sure, a bloke is bound to be a lecher
With ladies' wearing things so sheer and tight.

And frilly undies set my heart a beatin'.
They take me where me fancy loves to play,
Especially when they're silk and have no seat in.
That's why I filched that Aisle Of Lingerie.

And when the moon is peeping through the panties
Of some fair damsel, on a windy day,
To cop a feel is all that I am after.
I'm once again seduced by lingerie.


I dream of ladies' dreamy mounds and valleys--
A luscious piece no man could e'er forego.
I love those 'birds' whose knickers fit so tightly
I get the shivers and my juices flow.

So searching for that precious stock I wandered;
"Provocateur's" storeroom I did behold.
The thongs and bustiers and bras I gathered,
And all the teddies that my arms could hold.

But, oh, alas, my dreams must be forgotten,
I dare not sell or give these things away,
Lest they should trace the footprints of my bold lust,
Still I'll enjoy my Aisle of Lingerie. (repeat last line)

You folks probably already caught this boo-boo, but [due to an overreaching computer "replace" command, no doubt] Yeats's poem title turned into "The Lake Aisle of Lingerie" instead of "The Lake Isle of Innisfree."

I don't suppose there's a Joe Clone lurking nearby who can correct it, is there? If not, I hope the readers see the humor in the screw-up!
