Subject: Lyr Add: Verse to Cosher Bailey - recent oil news
From: Penny S.
Date: 12 Oct 02 - 05:30 AM

While discussing a recent case of Welsh motorists developing an alternative fuel for diesel cars, and the shocked reaction of the authorities to their using untaxed oil - the police are now going round car sniffing - I found myself singing this.

Now some drivers in Llanelli,
With an idea from the telli, (ll pronounced as in Welsh)
Running cars on cooking oil,
Brought the cops to rolling boil:
Chorus

Penny

Now one man he got stopped,
And he thought that he'd been 'shopped' (US= informed on)
This policeman, like a weasel
Said "It's o.k. it's red diesel" ('Red' diesel contains colourant as it has duty paid at a lower rate, and should only be used for home heating, or farm vehicles which are not run on the public highway)

If it's modern 'n obscure local jokes - I did one the week Ron (what was Mr Davies name now?) "came out" of obscurity.

Now Cosher Bailey's MP Ron,
Well he stop a while in Clapham.
Lost his car & job
But he still don't know what happen

Was you ever saw, &co

(that version of chorus makes more sense in Welsh English and more rhyme too)

Just a little re-write to recover most of the rhyme scheme!

Cosher Bailey's MP; Ron
Clapham common he was on.
Lost his car & lost his job
Just for playing with his....voters

I've read the foregoing threads, And I 'know' this song.
Abby Sale has done a great job in one of the threads. But this may need more discussion.
The two links above do not cover it all. but (if people agree) let them drop from the current page, and we'll try to provide a coherent listing.

Cosher Bailey's family tales
Get him talked about in Wales
And with all their fun and friskin'
They've been sung about in Miskin

Or

Now this curious little song
Has been going, oh so long.
Cosher Bailey and all his kin
Have been sung about in Miskin!

It was sung about at Miskin again this year. Ned led but passed verses round the room to anyone who offered and the whole company raised the roof with the choruses

I really like that format ofsocial singing (Sorry can't remember Ned's Mudcat name.)

Does anyone have any more verses?

With the high (UK) cost of fuel, this is back in the news. Telegraph

Back in days when jobs were fewer,
Cleaning chip shops was my toil*
All the waste went down the sewer,
Now there's gang wars for our oil*.
   Did you ever see...

Said the motor racing fans
"Babs would race at Pendine Sands
But when there was a pit-stop
It would smell just like a fish shop!"
   Did you ever see ...


*Toil, pronounced toy-ill
*Oil = Oy-ill

Someone up the thread asked about other verses of the song. I first heard it when I was about 13 (in 1964 and I saw a record of Rugby Songs for sale for about 13 shillings, and bought it to my parents' disgust.) Trying to remember other verses:

Oh I have a cousin Daniel
And he has a cocker spaniel
If you kick him in the middle
He will lift his leg and piddle

Oh I've got an Aunty Kitty
And she only had one titty
It was long and it was pointed
And the nipple's double-jointed

Now you know the Reverend Morgan
Well he had a funny organ
It was long and it was narrow
And he wheeled it in a barrow

Was you ever saw......etc

will add if/when I can remember

Cops in Amsterdam look fools
Thanks to EU smoking rules,
A decision, rather Wacko
Permits dope but not tobacco


Visit a "coffeeshop"

Or, perhaps you'd like to check your email in a fog of marijuana smoke at one of the city's many "coffeeshops." The Dutch use this English word to describe places that sell cannabis. While indoor tobacco smoke was banned in 2008, pot smoke is no problem in these shops. In a twist that would seem strange to Americans, Dutch coffeeshops can actually lose their license if they allow tobacco smoking inside their premises.

Interessting to see this again. I've got a revised version of the last line of my verse.

Brought the coppers to the boil.

Can't think how I missed the double meaning first time.

Last month at the BBC club, one member, Vic, asked me to join him & do alternate verses (Quick scribbling at bar to ensure I could remember at least as many verses as Vic would use).
It occured to me that the format (as with "The Quartermaster's Stores") allows for many 'personal' verses to be added.

e.g.

El Greco, (George Papavgeris)
Pays no heed to goddess Eris
Her temptation he's ignored
'Cos she's goddess of disc(h)ord ...
Did you ever see ...

I trust George won't object to this, I did, at least, include one of the pantheon of Greek gods!
