Subject: Lyr Req: song containing black pudding
From: GUEST,The Fantum
Date: 29 Oct 02 - 08:37 AM

i have been asked for the words to a song and all I have to go on are a few lines.They are

"....all of a sudden a dirty black pudding came flying through the air

it missed me mother and hit my brother......


What makes this so tantalising is that on hearing the words I could hum the tune and fit them in. I think it may be a music hall song but without a title I can't find a way to go further. I also think its so common that mudcatters everywhere will know of it and then I'll end up looking foolish.
On the other hand it could be a challenge.

Blaze Away is the original song "We'll build a bonfire of our troubles and we'll watch them blaze away"

Lots of other parodies - barrack-room or rugby club

Never been kissed
Never been pissed
He's the King of the Fairies

Mrs McVitie had only one titty to feed her baby on
Poor little cripple, he'd only one nipple to gnash his teeth upon

Well, the version I heard was in the Boy Scouts, and is probably a parody of something else. Probably someone will also say, obviously inauthentic, because there are no f-words. Well, here goes:

BLAZE AWAY

We'll build a bonfire of our troubles, and we'll watch the blaze away,
And as they all go-WUP in smoke clouds, we'll never worry should they come another day!
And as the bonfire keeps on burning, happy days will be returning,
As the scouts are singing, we'll watch our troubles blaze away-ay-ay.

HEY!
When all of a sudden, a big mealy puddin' came flying throug the air,
When all of a sudden, a big mealy puddin' came flying throug the air,
When all of a sudden, a big mealy puddin' came flying throug the air,
It hit me here,
It hit me there,
It hit me everywhere.

The tune is the Blaze away March, which looks late 19th Century, and the sheet music is HERE. The website says, tune composed by Abe Holzman in 1901. I can vouch for the tune, as it was one of the records which came with the old wind-up Victrola we had when I was a kid.

We know it started as just a tune
We have one complete set of words
We have scraps of lots of other parodies using this tune
We have a scrap from the risque version

As an aside I brought up this subject with my mother last night and sure enough she had the same few words as I had. She then confirmed the title which set me back and then sang the first few lines of the risque one which set everybody back

All the repondents have my thanks especially Toadfrog

Subject: Lyr Add: BLAZE AWAY
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 03 Nov 02 - 01:05 PM

Lyrics to "Blaze Away" written by Jimmy Kennedy, who also wrote "Teddy Bears' Picnic" and many other popular songs. It was recorded by the Northern Irish tenor Josef Locke, and was re-released on several CDs. Norma Waterson also sang "Blaze Away" on her album "The Very Thought of You."

You can hear a brass-band arrangement of the tune performed by Aldershot Command Searchlight Tattoo. There are also jazz and ragtime versions out there.

In a live instrumental recording by André Rieu and the Maastricht Salon Orchestra, you can faintly hear the audience singing along.

It's interesting that the original sheet music cover illustration shows a battle scene, while the words are about a bonfire.

Lyrics copied from http://www.spatty.demon.co.uk/lyrics/blazeaway.htm

BLAZE AWAY
(Music, Abe Holzmann, 1901; words, Jimmy Kennedy, c1955?)

We'll make a bonfire of our troubles
And we'll watch them blaze away.
And when they've all gone up in smoke clouds,
We'll never worry should they come another day.
And as the bonfire keeps on burning,
Happy days will be returning.
While the band keeps playing,
We'll let our troubles blaze away.

Here we are. There's work to do,
And don't let troubles trouble you.
Bring them along and we'll burn them up.
Bring them along and we'll burn them up. Ha ha, ha hey!

Start and throw them right into the fire.
Watch the flames go higher and higher,
Blazing away, blazing away.
Oh, come along bring your worries round today.

When all of a sudden a great mealy puddin' came flying through the air,
And then she ducked, and in it f***ed and hit her fair and square.

As well as "Blaze Away", there were at least three other marches that we had words to in the Royal Navy Bluejacket Band (s), but I can't remember WHICH marches .....One never forgets the words,though---
            One march went "We're a shower of bastards,bastards are we", ( in 6/8 ) while another went "Have you ever caught your bollocks in a rat-trap?" (2/4)
          Then there was "How far can you walk with it in ? Just as far as you can with it out ? " (Also 2/4)
    I expect someone out there knows the names of the appropriate marches !

I think I can stretch the bawdy version a little more.
We sang as kids in the 60s
All of a sudden a bloody rice pudden came flying through the air,
It missed me ma and hit me pa and knocked him off his chair.
Me granny went crackers and stamped on his knackers and pissed all ovver the wall,
The dog went mad and bit me dad in his one and only ball.

Seems to end in mid air there but I don't think we had any more, or even 'da daed' the rest of the tune.

We also had similar to an earlier line,
Ain't it a pity she's only one titty to feed the baby on.

Another of Sousa's marches similarly treated is the bit in 'Stars and Stripes' or is it 'Liberty Bell'? 'Be kind to your web-footed friends' is used universally on the football and rugby terraces. I suspect the last bit in the previous posting uses this tune as well.

In't it a pity, etc.
She lost the other while playing rugger in 1941.

And another Sousa march :

Have you ever had your bollocks in a rat trap ?

I think this is one of those where the parodies are better-known than the original.

The version I've heard is:

"Ain't it a pity she's only one titty to feed the baby on
The poor little bugger will never play rugger or grow up big and strong"

The Two Ronnies (comedians Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett) did a parody for one of their TV shows, which so far as I can recall went:

"Ain't it a pity the pubs in the city all close at half past ten
If I had the power they'd shut for an hour then open up again
I could get chronic on vodka and tonic at any time I like
And while the coppers watched my car I'd ride home on my bike"

I remberer a fragment of this song from a few years in Glasgow, what I remembered is
All of a sudden a great mealy pudding came flying through the air.
I know the song started with the words Mrs McGuigan flung oot of the jiggin' for swinging her leg too high,
Mrs McGuigan flung oot of the jiggin' for showing her hairy pie, the mealy pudding came later, but I don't know the intervening lines, nor what happened to the pudding, fascinating to find regional variations of the same bawdy song. I also know the Mrs McVitie version, but I know it as Nellie McVitie, definitely a rugby song, I prefer the Glasgow version, but I'd love to have the missing lines.

What I've got so far, from my own (unreliable) memories, and questioning still more unreliable sources is:

All of a sudden
A bloomin' Black Pudding
Came sailing through the air
All of a sudden
A bloomin' Black Pudding
I really do declare.

It missed my mother
And hit my brother
And knocked him off his chair
Did he duck?
Did he fuck -
It hit him fair and square

Me nanny went crackers
And stamped on his knackers
And pissed against the wall
The dog went mad
And bit me Dad
In his one and only ball.

It sounds like there's still more of a story to come, but that's all I've been able to find - most of it, in various forms, has already been posted, but surely there should be more?

21 never been done, Queen of all the virgins.

Oh, ain't it a pity she's only one titty to feed the baby on
Poor little f****r has only one sucker to grind his teeth upon.

Fat as a marrow And swift as an arrow
came flying throug the air

it missed Mama and hit Papa and knocked him out of his chair

Grandad went crackers and pulled out his knackers
and pissed all over the floor

they wiped it up and dried it up and the he done some more

A favourite song in the cadet force at skool - late 50's -
Here is another snippet (Not sure if the lady realises the origins of the song!).
We sang the "nellie the cripple" version, with the bit about babies ending "..today's the day we give them away for free".
