This would almost be folk music now!!

There is a parody song of The Teddybear's Picnic called The Teddyboy's Picnic.

Some possible lyrics are:

No need to wash, it looks like rain
So bring your cosh and bicycle chain
Today's the day the Teddyboy's have their picnic

It is possible that Peter Sellers wrote or sang it, but I can find no reference anywhere.

Anyone have any ideas or indeed the full lyrics?

Regards

BB

I've just checked the 4-CD Celebration of Sellars set: it isn't on there. But it does sound like him.

Found this qoute on the web:

If you go down to the woods today
You'd better go in disguise
With stovepipe trews and fancy shoes
And something intense in ties.


rconrded by Jimmy and the Lost Boys?

Jimmy etc seem to be an off-the-wall Oz group. There is a MIDI file in the Google results but the usual tune only. Can't see any words anywhere.

If you go down in the woods today
You'd better go in disguise
In drainpipe trews and high coloured shoes
And something intense in ties
No need to wash its going to rain
Just take your cosh and your bicycle chain
Todays the day the teddy boys have their picnic

the strangest thing, I was waiting for a meeting and decided to browse a Sanity store. They have 3 set compilations of music that never gets anywhere else. There was one called "Great Oz Rock". I hesitated, then decided to see who they included, and it was Jimmy and the Boys, and TBs Picnic wass there, and....


It's not the song!!!! (It actually sounds a bit Adam and the Antsish - similar story - but not it!!!)


And so I continue the search.

Thank you all, The rest I can remember.

The song was very derogatory to Teddy Boys, who were smarter in clobber than the average teen, even the law were jealous of our clothes.

Hence the bad name given unfairly.

But the song was brilliant.

The suits etc cost on average more than my old man earned in a week.

Thankyou once again.

Ex Teddy Boy with the same haircut and DA
