Subject: Comin' Round the Mountain???
From: Dan
Date: 07 Jul 98 - 11:18 PM

Can anyone help me with the lyrics to this song? I'm not sure if it would be called a "bawdy" or a "hash" or something entirely different. This is all that I know of it.

She was comin' round the mountain doin 90 miles an hour when the chain on her motorcycle broke. She was thrown in the grass with the muffler up her...........well, you get the idea.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

As far as I recall, it's a one-stanza parody.

She was comin' round a bend doin' nine miles an hour
When the chain on her bicycle broke;
She was found in a pass with a sprocket in her pocket
She was tickled to death by a spoke.

I think this came up in the "naughty kids" thread. Here's how I learned it:

She was coming down the mountain doing 90
When the chain on her motorcycle broke
She was found in the grass with the kickstand up her ass
and her tits were playing Dixie on the spokes

"Super Skier" is based on the "M.T.A. Song" tune (ultimately "The Ship That Never Returned"). HERE is their sound clip.

The tune of "Wreck of the Old 97".

She was comin' 'round the bend
Doin' 90 miles an hour
When the chain on her bicycle broke
She went slidin' through the grass
With a sprocket in her pocket
And was tickled to death by a spoke.

I assume this is a serious query, so I'll give it my best shot. This is probably one of the first songs children traditionally learned in the U.S., after nursery school. It was sung around camp fires, at kids' parties and in schools. I have no information on its origins, although it sounds like it could have been a fiddle and banjo dance tune in our rural areas at one time. It probably has some hidden meaning, but I've no idea what it might be. Others?

She'll be comin' around the mountain when she comes.
She'll be comin' around the mountain when she comes.
She'll be comin' around the mountain,
she'll be comin' around the mountain'
She'll be comin' around the mountain when she comes.

She'll be drivin' six white horses, etc.

And we'll all go out to meet her, etc.

And we'll all have chicken and dumplings, etc.

By the way, it was not the same tune as for "The Wreck of the Old 97," but perhaps reminiscent of it.

There is an almost-Republican density developing in this thread.

1. The verse requested is not called "Coming 'Round the Mountain".
2. The verse requested is a hack variant on the "Wreck of the Old 97" (not 99). It has as many variations as naughty minded school children have been able to dream up in the last ~75 years.
3. "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain" is as described above by TJinSanDiego.

A different song, yes, but it too has its share of after-dark verses.

I gave her inches one and drove it on.
I gave her inches one and drove it on.
I gave her inches one, She said "Honey, this is fun!
Put your belly close to mine and drive it on."

More verses in Ed Cray, "The Erotic Muse."

The girls they grow tall in Kansas.
The girls they grow tall in Kansas.
The girls they grow tall
And they lay 'em on a log,
And they fuck 'em like a dog in Kansas.

Of course "She'll be Comin' ..." is a parody itself, of the hymn "When the Chariot Comes" (1899, "Old Plantation Hymns"), posted by Richie (13 Nov 02) in the original thread 4947, linked above (the one with 35 messages).

Here's a verse of another parody about an inept home handyman by Kristof Robertson-

Tried rewirein' my kitchen, house burned down
Tried rewirin' my kitchen, house burned down
Tried rewirin' my kitchen
All the firemen are a-bitchin'
And they're tryin' hard to run me out of town.

I think that is on line; I just happened to write that verse down on my copy of "She'll be Comin'...".

This is awesome! I can't believe other people sang this stupid song too.

I was about 12 years old in Boston (Jamaica Plain) and remember it like this -

She was comin' 'round the mountain doing 90,
when the chain on her motorcycle snapped,
she went flyin' in the grass with the muffler up 'er ass,
and her tits were playin' Dixie with the spokes!

Now its stuck in my head and I'll be singing it for another 38 years! ;)

But it is a thread on She'll Be Coming Round The Mountain,

Look ☝☝☝☝☝



not TurkStraw or Old97 ---

So why are we talking of a whole bunch of other songs instead? That's not drift, it's just confusion...
